paradise by Coldplay on Grooveshark

I'm not much of a Coldplay gal, but boy do I love this song.
It's like I listened to it with new ears this week.

I'll be going out of town for a few days at the end of the Summer and I'm one of those people that just wants to stay home. Stay around familiar surroundings, people and so on.

I'm scared.
They're my family, I know them, but it's just not home.
I'll miss my family that's back here when I leave.
I'll miss my bed, my dog, my schedule of watching Buffy every night before bed (what can I say- vampire slaying calms me, ha!)

Silly as some things may seem, I think I take so much of it for granted.
Not just the material; like Netflix or my car, but the feeling of just being at home.
Of knowing that I have a place of my own that I can come back to every night.

Knowing that no matter the season, the fields will still be wide open, that I can still see the sky laying above them.
That I can feel the wind blowing through my hair and see the birds float through the sky.
It's a comfort I take advantage of.
I need to try to realize it more often, not just because I'll be leaving soon.

Even though some of my memories in this town have been less than ideal,
it's my home,
my paradise.


  1. I love how you order your books by color!

    1. Thanks, Alisa!
      It's so hard to find stuff, but the pretty factor definitely is a plus, haha!
      Thank you! <3

  2. I love your little piece of paradise. It's pretty grand. I LOOVEEEEEE Coldplay.

    Now I will say this: Go. Have fun. Embrace it. When you return, you'll love your bit of paradise even more. You know that saying, "Absence makes the heart grow fonder?" It's especially true of home I find.

    1. Aw, thank you so much Juju. I definitely will carry those words with me. <3
