Well I'm back folks. I feel that in the past I have bragged too much about never getting sick, and now since December, I've been sick about every few weeks. I finally feel fully back to health, and I hope it stays that way!
This week the song I have chosen to sing, is "Body Electric", by Lana Del Rey.
If you couldn't already tell, I've been listening to Lana and Marina pretty much non-stop. Which leads me to realize I need to find other artists to cover. I think the reason I go back and forth so much with the two of them, is because Marina is everything I feel I can relate to. Lana is everything I never had the courage to do, and was always curious about.
My parents should be proud. I was such a good girl, and the epitome of the "D.A.R.E." student. With the exception of going places that I shouldn't have been going when I said I would be at my friends' house. At least my morals still remained intact. Deep inside every good girl, however, lurks a curiosity that longs to see how the other half lives. Even if the "good girl" makes snide remarks about that other half. She'll always wonder. I think that's why Lana appeals to me.
I can sing like I know exactly what she's talking about, but I have no idea. I heard that she was an alcoholic and shipped off to a boarding school by the age of 14. Can you imagine??? Not this girl. I didn't even know about most foreplay, or the details of it at that point. Especially at the age I'm at now, 14 seems like such a little baby! I'm 25 by the way...and pretty soon here will be 26. I am not excited. For various reasons.
To clarify, I have no regrets. I like who I was, and who I am. I could never be a "Lana". In fact the very idea of it actually makes me get that feeling you get when you feel like you've been kicked in the stomach. It's just nice to wonder.
