Just Me Explaining Why I Love John Mayer's Songs So Much

This is basically just me explaining my love for one of my all-time favorite artists, John Mayer, and his songs.

Just Me Explaining Why I Love John Mayer's Songs So Much

Like many others, I grew up listening to John Mayer. His songs on his older albums bring back so much nostalgia. My personal favorite album is his "Continuum" which holds many of the classics. Memories of driving in the backseat of my mom's car while "Daughters" played and listening to his acoustic songs over and over again all bring back good childhood memories. His voice was always so soothing and gentle. (Still is!!!)

1. "Waiting on the World to Change"

I love this song so much because it has a really powerful meaning behind it. The song is very slow. I love how he repeats words like "waiting" and "standing" to portray how nothing is happening and it's up to change the world. "One day our generation is gonna rule the population." Preach it, John!

2. "Daughters"

This SONG. This one is one of my first memories of John Mayer and one of the first songs of his that I ever listened to. It is such a sweet song and it never gets old no matter how many times I listen to it. “Fathers be good to your daughters and daughters will live like you do. Girls become lovers who turn into mothers so mothers be good to your daughters, too.” Oh, my. Tears are flowing.

3. "Dreaming With a Broken Heart"

Am I the only one who cries most times they hear this song? Yes? You're lying to yourself. This song has painful lyrics but they are so good. "When you're dreaming with a broken heart, waking up is the hardest part." OKAY JOHN. Why did you have to play my heart like that?

4. "The Heart of Life"

Yet another good one? Don't mind if I do! This song is slightly upbeat and really just makes me happy. "Pain throws your heart to the ground, love turns the whole thing around." YES.

5. "Your Body is a Wonderland"

Found on yet another one of my favorite albums, Room for Squares, this is one of his most popular songs and one of his best. An absolute classic, if you will.

6. "In the Blood"

On his recently released album, The Search for Everything the first time I heard this song I listened to it probably about 200 times. It's really good, trust me.

I love this man and his music to no end. These are just a few of my favorite songs by him and I can't wait to hear more when they come out down the road!

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.

However, even though I loved the fact that the books and the show are starkly different, there are simply just some ways in which the books are much better. Let's take a look:

To The Girl In The Back Row

I just want you to know you are loved. You are loved so very much.

To The Girl In The Back Row

Recently I was blessed to be a counselor at a wonderful camp, secluded in a cornfield somewhere in Virginia. I consider myself to be a seasoned camp counselor, as I have not only been a camper for most of my life but have been privileged enough to work multiple camps with all kinds of different facilities. I have worked camps with multi-thousand dollar facilities, with zip lines, rock walls, ropes courses, and boats. I have worked at camps with amazing water sports, camps with paintball, camps with canoes and paddle boats and floating blobs or trampolines in the middle of the water. I have worked at camps with in ground pools and camps without any pools, and even some camps with go-karts. I've had problem kids, kids who refuse to listen to anything I say, kids who sneak out after lights out to meet a significant other, and kids who are every camp counselors dream.

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

"As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20th"- Donald J. Trump

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

The United Nations (UN) has been in existence since June of 1945. Since then, the world has come together to work on and solve some of the harshest problems that face the Human Race. Be it children in societal ills like Human Trafficking, natural issues like Deforestation, or issues of extreme poverty, the UN has worked together in an attempt to make it a better place for us all. It's the only organization in the history of the world to bring people together in a willing, peaceful way; a feat that not even the League of Nations could do in the Post- WWI era. Why was it that one organization failed, and the other one is still going strong, 72 years later?
