Meteor Shower

In all honesty, I’ve been thinking about what to write about space for a good while, and nothing really came to my mind. It’s unique among the elements in that it’s just something that the greater majority of us humans have never experienced outside of watching from afar. With that said, although I don’t have any cute childhood stories or thoughtfully elaborated rants that pertain to space, I thought that one thing that really makes me think of space sometimes is music. Music can make us think and feel anything, it’s one of the most powerful forces that humans have access to. I listen to a lot of music, and when I listen on my computer or my phone, I use Spotify. Spotify gives you different stats on your listening history throughout the last year in a part of their app labeled “Spotify Wrapped”, and this year it showed me that my most listened to song: Meteor Shower by Cavetown. At first, I was going to just link the song and request a listen, but as last time I tried to do that I saved my draft and my entire blog post got wiped, I sat on this post for a week until deciding that not only will I include Meteor Shower, but I’ll make a playlist of music that either sounds like it’s from outer space, makes me think about outer space, or just plain talks about outer space. The sounds can range from the peaceful thoughts of space with Drifting Away and Crush to the chaotic destruction that takes place in the void with Supermassive Black Hole and Alrighty Aphrodite, but they all remind me of space. Hopefully this music also reminds you of space, and if you can’t find the time to listen to the whole playlist, then just give Meteor Shower a listen, it’s the song that sparked the entire playlist. Happy listening!

Mr. Grimm- The Modern Day Philosopher

“You’re a mean one Mr. Grimm”.

Since none of you know who Mr. Grimm is I will introduce him. He was my cor (homeroom) teacher for my 4 years at St. Francis Prep. For the first 3 years everyone in my homeroom hated Mr. Grimm. We hated him because he held us accountable for our actions, and followed the rule book to the letter. To put it into perspective, he wrote me up 30-40 times freshman year, and I would only see him 15 minutes a day. It was a long time ago, but it was probably my fault even though he was “beasting” (overly strict). Despite almost all my detentions coming from homeroom I wouldn’t have wanted anyone else to have been my teacher. He taught us how to be better people, and took extra time trying to make me a better man. Senior year with Mr. Grimm was lit. He was very cool, and let us listen to the music of our choice on special occasions. He was even at my championship game, and told me he always knew I was capable of great things. This ones for you my guy.

The Time I Flew

Air is always around us. We need it to breathe for our survival. We are in the air when we are flying, or as shown in my previous post when we are jumping off stuff. But when is air our enemy? For me it was during a basketball game. The opposing player tried to take me out using the element of air against me. Of course he couldn’t stop me himself, so he had to use the elements to cheat. Even with him using air to cheat I still finished the game, but my back was destroyed for about a week. #BuiltDifferent
