If you could see me, whoever I am

It’s hard to believe that a few years ago I didn’t like to drive. For real, I was TERRIFIED. At 15 1/2, I got my temps just like everyone else, but the next few months of supervised driving scared me to pieces. The absolute power and possibility of operating a machine (ok, minivan) unnerved me. So, I got my temps renewed and didn’t get my license until the summer before my senior year of high school.

Now, driving around with the windows down and the music up is my favorite part of summer. Maybe it’s because home is kind of a shitty place to be these days, or perhaps it’s because I don’t get to drive at school, but I snap up any chance to cruise around listening to some good music. I think a song can’t be determined a favorite until it passes the driving test. When your blown out speakers are rattling away or the bass is shaking the review mirror, you literally feel the music, and nothing can beat (pun!) that.

I am now going to shamelessly plug Joe’s DJ group, bustedBASS. Their mix “Fuck Oil, Let’s Party” is perfect for driving. Passion Pit makes great driving music too.


Accio November

OK, I’ve been following a few Harry Potter-themed blogs pretty religiously lately. One of them (You & Harry to the Very End) is having people submit their stories about HP, so I did and it was posted! Check out my post and the rest of the blog here.

Just for the taste of it!

I am a Diet Coke person. At school, I go through a can on my walk to class. At home with my mom, a Diet Pepsi person, I make special trips to the grocery store just for a case of it. To me, Diet Coke is the nectar of the gods; it’s like little drops of heaven. I even have preferences as to how I get it, whether it’s from the fountain, can, or bottle. Just today at work, my boss called me a “Coke snob.”

The Frisky gets my obsession. An article ran today on the site about Diet Coke’s history and it was really interesting. They even included some old commericals. So crack open a can for yourself, and read the full article here.
