The song of February 14th, 2018

Hello! It’s been a while since I last posted anything.

Just as Valentine’s Day ended, it left me with things to reflect on. And maybe they can be said with this song: A Quien Quiera Escuchar (To whomever listens) by Maldita Nerea.

I fell in love. Last year, while on a trip, I met a girl. We talked during a party and she was really nice. She was going to an event later that year, one which I was attending to. With that as an excuse, I asked her number.

After I came home, on my routine, I started thinking about her. So after some thought, I texted her. We started texting daily and soon I noticed I was smiling just thinking of our conversations. And I also noticed that she liked me. We had things in common and interesting conversations.

However, distance was a problem. We were miles and miles apart, which made communication difficult. Even if I asked her about her day, her favorite music, etcetera, she was not talkative. And I started thinking “I really want someone who shares her day with me, even if it’s just small details.” Maybe in person she would be more open, but how would we meet?

It was definitely not her problem, nor mine, but our personalities actually weren’t compatible. I started falling out of love, then she got a boyfriend. We met and hung out at that event, we danced as promised; but nothing happened.

What this song expresses, is the fear of failing when it comes to love. Maybe it ends well, but what if it doesn’t? Can we stand another heartbreak? The truth is we’ll never know if we don’t try. It is better to try and fail, than to stay in place.

I decided to give my heart a chance, and it hurt a lot when I hit the ground. But I don’t regret it; because I allowed myself to feel, even if for a moment. I still smile when I think of what we had. And it made me grow and become a better person.

To whomever listens reads this, don’t be afraid. If you’re single, open up and love will come. If you’re in a relationship, appreciate and express love. And to everyone, loving oneself is a necessary step.

P.S. I just wanted to express myself today. I don’t know if I will update this regularly or not, knowing myself and this blog’s history. Maybe I’ll make an occasional post when I feel like it.

The song of October 3rd, 2014

Hello there!

Recently, I was thinking about love. And so this song came to me. It’s Gotta Be Somebody by Nickelback.

I have posted about love before, and I have to admit that I didn’t use to relate to those songs. But lately I have found a lot of sense in them, about my feelings. Gotta Be Somebody is one of those songs. As I said before, many of my friends are now in relationships or into someone. Me? I’m still single and I don’t have a crush. But I feel kind of lonely. I want to have someone special to share feelings and spend time with.

But I can’t find anyone. I know that I have to wait and there is someone for me, but I wonder how much will I have to wait. And I don’t mean waiting without doing anything. I mean, waiting while working on love until I find the love that makes me feel complete. I have “loved” a few girls, but sometimes that kind of love is not enough.

Maybe I am too strict, but what I know is that I will get better at love trying and failing, so I won’t give up. I’ll try to enjoy every moment I spend with a special person and I will see if I feel comfortable. I may be single for a long time, but I won’t be unlovable or unable to love. I’m optimistic with respect to that.

I hope you like the song!

The song of September 20th, 2014

Hello! Today I remembered this song, which means a lot to me because of one particular moment in my life. It is Feel Again by OneRepublic.

I’ve never been the emotional one. I don’t usually have strong emotions and I can see everything from a neutral point of view. But, sometimes I do feel. One special moment I did was when I was in love.

Now, that doesn’t mean that I lost appetite because of her, or that I couldn’t get her out of my mind. I thought about her often, but not following the stereotype of the boy in love. But she helped me see the world from a different perspective. I felt like I could see the color and brightness of everything, the beautiful melody of the environment, smile because of a little thing. She made me feel again, in a special way.

That’s when I realized that, independently of her, life can be beautiful. You just have to see it through the right glass. And, since then, I’ve tried to use it. And now I can enjoy my days more. I feel a little happier and, why not? A little sad now and then, because life is not appreciated without the bad moments. It may not be much, but for someone like me, to feel and cherish every day is a great goal to pursue. I’ll keep working towards it.

Enjoy the song!

The song of September 18th, 2014

Hi there!

Today I listened to this song. It’s one of the songs which I had listened and enjoyed before, but didn’t have a special meaning to me until some time ago. It is Try by P!nk.

This song is about taking risks, especially in love. As the lyrics say,

Where there is desire there is gonna be a flame, where there is a flame someone’s bound to get burned. But just because it burns, doesn’t mean you’re gonna die. You gotta get up and try.

That’s exactly what I did: I tried. There was a girl I liked. I met her three years ago at school and we became good friends. We would spend a lot of time together. I started feeling something for her, and I decided to tell her. I was aware that I could walk over the fire, or get burned. That didn’t change my mind and I told her that I really liked her, the way she is, among other things. After a flattering speech, she told me that I was her best friend. So I got burned.

I didn’t feel sad, since I knew that was a possibility. But I felt really good because I tried. I gave my heart, and although she didn’t receive it, I felt brave. That gave me strength to go on. I know there’s someone who will accept me, but I’ll have to keep trying to find her. I’ll have to keep getting burned many times.

That’s why I found the profound meaning of this song. I understood every word and feeling. Try helped me go through that moment and made me realize that life is about trying, not about waiting.

Enjoy the song!

The song of September 16th, 2014


It’s late at night and this might be posted on the 17th, but the song is from the 16th. This is the first song I share, and I’ll tell you why I chose it. I was listening to this song and related to it. It is Everybody’s Got Somebody But Me by Hunter Hayes featuring Jason Mraz.

About one year and a half ago, I noticed how many friends and acquaintances got in relationships. I could easily count 10 couples. And many others of my friends had crushes, which some of them ultimately transformed into relationships. Also, the corny statuses on social networks were overwhelming.

Maybe because of that, I wanted to have someone by my side. But I couldn’t find someone I would like to spend time with. I had someone, but it ended. So, I relate to this song, because I see couples on the street, on public transportation, at school. It makes me want to find that “special someone” now, but I know I should give it some time. I’m happy with my current single status; but still, I feel like I want to find her quick.

So, this is the song of September 16th, 2014. Enjoy the song!
