The Playlist Shuffle Tag

Hey! So… I got to messing with some code, and somehow I accidentally deleted all my scheduled posts, and I am in the process of getting them back, but until than I bring you this random tag that nobody tagged me for! I won’t tag anybody specific since I wasn’t actually tagged, but if you wanna do it, you literally just shuffle your music library of choice, post the first fifteen songs, (NO SKIPPING), and write your favorite verse. I’m just gonna shuffle now before I write another run-on sentence! This should be interesting because my music library is pretty… eclectic.

  1. Demi Lovato – Heart Attack

So I’m…
Puttin’ my defenses up
‘Cause I don’t wanna fall in love
If I ever did that
I think I’d have a heart attack

If you’ve kept up with me for a little while, you know that I match my main characters with theme songs, and this is the song for Vivien Deverow!

  1. Reiki Tribe – To The Heart

    This is instrumental but SO relaxing….

  2. Kellie Pickler – Tough

I wanted lace, I wanted pearls, to be a princess like
The other girls.
But life came hard, to my front door.
And I grew up trying
To even out the score.

  1. Demi Lovato – Warrior

Now I’m a warrior
Now I’ve got thicker skin
I’m a warrior
I’m stronger than I’ve ever been
And my armor, is made of steel, you can’t get in
I’m a warrior
And you can never hurt me again

  1. Lady Antebellum – Down south

I was born I was blessed
Right place, right time I guess
Ain’t no good reason why I left
Except to run and roam
Would you take me back and take me in
Let me be your child again
Kiss my cheek forgive my sins
And let me call you home

  1. Reiki Tribe – Sleep Therapy and Relaxation

Pretty flute music…

  1. The Band Perry – Independence

Patient anticipation
Up till now I’ve been hurry up and waiting
At a bus stop in independence licking an ice cream cone
I’ve been kicking I’ve been scheming
This is as close as I’ve ever been to leaving
Five blocks away, a stone’s throw from home
But I’m as good as gone
I gotta get gone, gone, gone
Shooting like a gun, a gun, a gun
Skipping like a stone, stone, stone
Far as I can run to where freedom is free
There’s a road like a long gray ribbon far as I can see
And it’s pulling independence out of me

  1. Selena Gomez – Kill Em With Kindness

The world can be a nasty place
You know it, I know it, yeah
We don’t have to fall from grace
Put down the weapons you fight with
And kill ’em with kindness

  1. Dean Evenson & Li Xiangting – Green Quiet Mountain

This whole album can take me straight to my happy place.

  1. Walk Off The Earth – Rule The World

They say no way, oh, I say I’ll rule the world
Ain’t afraid of the walls, I’m a break ’em down
They stay the same, oh, I’m feelin’ high as a bird
Ain’t afraid of the ground, I’m a stay up
I say yeah yeah yeah, they say no no no
They say slow slow slow, I say go go go
They say no way, oh, I say I’ll rule the world
I say I rule the world

  1. Lorde – Royals

This whole song kind of carries the theme of my story because my world is ran by a bunch of power-hungry royals, and these kids are forced into the royal life when they really do not belong there.

  1. Imagine Dragons – Demons

When the days are cold
And the cards all fold
And the saints we see
Are all made of gold
When your dreams all fail
And the ones we hail
Are the worst of all
And the blood’s run stale

And this one’s also on my writing playlist! I promise I did not arrange this!

  1. Cassadee Pope – I Am Invincible

I’m invincible
I’m unbreakable
I’m a diamond cut to last
I’m unstoppable
I’m a hero
Like a phoenix from the ash

  1. Miranda Lambert – Roots & Wings

I got red dirt stains
On my boots and jeans
Calloused fingers
From my guitar strings
Wild like the wind
In the tall pine trees
I got roots
And I got wings

  1. Twenty One Pilots – Heathens

We don’t deal with outsiders very well
They say newcomers have a certain smell
You have trust issues, not to mention
They say they can smell your intentions

This is possibly the creepiest song I have ever heard, but it’s on my iPod because it gets me in the mood to write those really dark scenes! insert dagger and pen emoji here

The Story of the Possessed Calculator

Once Upon A Time Handwritten
Once upon a time, in the real-life world, there was a blind algebra student who was trying to do a crap load of homework after laying on the couch with a sinus infection for two days. In order to properly calculate the absolute value of x and y, this student used a graphing calculator just like those used in classrooms far and wide, except for the little synthesized robot named Betty that lived inside it and read out the numbers for people who couldn’t see what she put on the screen for them.
Betty was being quite a good little robot and was happily calculating things, (hopefully correctly), as the student wrote down equations, typed in numbers, and occasionally yelled at Siri to google mathematical terms. And then suddenly Betty was not very happy anymore, and she announced that her battery was critically low. She began to slur her words as though she were drunk and stuttered hopelessly over her words as the somewhat frazzled student tried to find her battery hatch! And then, she died completely!
Now our little story does not, in fact, end with Betty’s demise! Horrified because her calculator had died one problem away from being finished with her homework, the student rushed Betty to her Dad to see if he could find the battery compartment. Upon locating the compartment, her dad exchanged the spent batteries for new ones, and that gave Betty a bit of juice. Said student’s dad could now perform such simple math as, “2+2 = 4,” and “1+4 = 5,” but Betty did not utter a word while this was going on! If Betty could not talk, the student could not read her calculation results, and therefore no Algebra homework could be completed… But our story doesn’t end there either!
After pressing numerous buttons and making multiple google searches, the student concluded that there was no fixing Betty without a call to tech support, and therefore she would just have to attempt to do the last problem on her phone or Braille sense calculator. Dropping Betty on her desk to await the opening of the calculator company, the student set about the extremely confusing task of entering numbers and parenthesis into her phone calculator. Three steps into the lengthy equation, she was interrupted by a horrible sounding buzz coming out of Betty’s speakers! The hideous buzzing noise repeated itself about four times during the amount of time it took the student to complete her problem, and by then she was quite sick of hearing it! This time she took Betty to her mom to see if anything was on the screen of importance, and her solution was to take Betty’s batteries out completely until morning, when a call to tech support could be made. Upon the removal of her batteries, Betty insisted that her power was low, and that she was, “shutting down now!” She then proceeded to vibrate repeatedly, even though both her main and backup batteries had been removed, and technically she shouldn’t have had any power with which she could vibrate! The family then concluded that Betty had gone bananas and should be left on the kitchen table for the night! The student then returned to her room to email her Algebra teacher and say that her calculator was possessed, and therefore she couldn’t do her next assignment, and then she flopped on her bed and began to entertain her followers by writing a blog post about betty the Possessed Calculator!

Yes, that is a true story! My calculator is somehow vibrating and making hideous buzzing noises with no batteries! I’m just a lil bit creeped out…
