3 Reasons I'll Be Blasting Tiffany's 80s Bop, 'All This Time,' ALL The Time

Although it may be a sad song to hear, I actually find myself feeling encouraged instead of being upset.


I have heard this song, "All This Time" by Tiffany once in a few years ago. Then, I have decided to hear it again when it was recommended for me to hear on YouTube. After hearing it again, I have asked myself why I didn't get into this song before. Here are three reasons why one should hear the '80s song, "All This Time" by Tiffany.

1. This is a great song by Tiffany to start with

I never have heard of the singer Tiffany before until my mother mentioned her and this song. Then, after hearing her lovely voice in this song, I really am glad that there is a song like this and with her as the singer. Her voice captures that questioning of moving on and the feeling of missing the things from the past.

2. It has striking lyrics

When I read the lyrics from this song more closely, the lyrics become most of the reason why I like to hear this song. Lots of things are being described and happening in this song. I adore the description lyrics in the song such as "hearts are good for souvenirs." Moreover, the parallelism between the lyrics "the sun still shines, the sun still sets" connects to "and the heart forgives, the heart forgets." This is very metaphoric of the moving on phase. Both the "time" and "heart" move on. Finally, when she sings, "But what will I do now with all this time," it brings out that rhetorical question and it makes it hard for us listeners to answer to her after hearing her feelings throughout the song. These are the lyrics that are very striking to me when hearing this song.

3. It's a perfect song to listen to for positive encouragement

Although it may be a sad song to hear, I actually find myself feeling encouraged instead of being upset. Not on love, but when going through the struggles of life, I think that there is saying that there is no time to think about the past and move forward which is demonstrated with the paced motion of Tiffany's singing and her lyrics about "the sun" and "the heart." One should move forward with life and not dwell on the past and be happy. One should also cherish the present and go with the flow to the future because the future is unpredictable which relates back to the question lyric from this song, "But what will I do now with all this time?" For me, being left "with all this time," I get to reflect on my dreams and the accomplishments I want to achieve and start to work hard for my dreams, which makes it worth "all this time" for me and this is an answer that I would give out to this question lyric.

This is a nice song from the 80s that one should hear as well!

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
