(Missing update: So, unlike Jesus…. I’m forgetful. And I left yesterday afternoon without the key to my UHAUL storage unit. So I still haven’t checked for my treasure. I’ll let you know how it goes.)

SONG #1- I went to dinner with my grad school friends and afterwards, I used the restroom. I was the only one in there, so I could hear the music really well. And there was this song I had never heard before playing on the speakers. I stood there, in the stall, and listened to every word because it was absolutely beautiful. As it ended I snapped back to reality and I had been in the bathroom for around 5 minutes. Not as easy story to explain. “Uh… I was standing alone in the bathroom listening to the lyrics of this song.” I would never believe someone who told me that.

The song is “Realize” by Colbie Caillat. But I give her a big strike [or her record label] because they won’t let me put the video on here. So, here is the link to the video though life would be cooler if I could just post the video.

SONG #2- On Fridays, my students get a special treat- if we are testing or doing some sort of desk work, we get to listen to the “SHREK” soundtrack. And let me tell you. Nothing will get a group of kids wishing for a test like the hope for hearing “All-Star”. It always warms the heart to watch 30 kids do long division and sing to themselves, “Hey now, you’re a rock star, get the show on, get paid…”

Anyways, if you’ve never actually heard the Shrek soundtrack, it’s good. Real good. A lot of interesting songs.

And my dear BFF [whoIdon’treallyknow] Phil Wickham did a cover yesterday of one of my favorite songs from the soundtrack. Obviously, I think it’s better than the original. Then again, we are fake best friends, so of course I’m going to be loyal to him. And he will let me post the video. Which I appreciate.

Happy Wednesday. Hope you are 2 songs happier than when you got here.
