Heal The World

Heal The WorldThe one Michael Jackson song that especially stands out for me.

When I was a kid, there was this community event happening in a hall downtown.  I can`t remember why but one of the Aunties wanted a whole bunch of us to sing a song together in front of everyone.  So every weekend for I forget how many weekends, we went to her house and rehearsed this song.  These rehearsals I still remember to this day.  All my friends, ones I still talk to, ones I used to talk to and ones I wonder about all used to come and sing.  We used to have so much fun during these rehearsals that it became something that will forever be embedded in my mind.

We presented and sung the song and everyone loved it.  I can’t remember if we were good or not.  All I remember is it lifted the spirits of everyone who was in the audience and set the tone and mood for the rest of the night.

Just a few weeks ago I remember I was in an HMV during one of my out of town trips and I came across this greatest hits album of Michael Jackson.  I looked at it and for some odd reason, I just had to have it.  For some reason I was drawn to it and knew that I had to buy it.  Later that night, as my friends and I were driving home, we put the CD on and begun to listen.  This urge to buy the CD was so great that I didn’t even check the back to see what songs there were.  And while I was driving, this song, Heal The World, came into my head.  I asked my friend if the album had the song and sure enough it did.

As the song played, all these memories flooded my mind of the rehearsals that one summer and how joyful a time it was.  The song itself is so beautifully written that it warms the heart when one listens to it.  I have never felt happiness to that degree  in such a while as I did that midnight driving home on the highway while that song played.

Heal The World by Michael Jackson will forever have a place in my heart as being that one inspirational song that literally shaped and defined that one summer when I was once a child.  If this song was not written, that particular summer would have just been another one lost in memory.

May Allah grant you Jannat.

Dark Sunday Evening

Tonight is one of those gloomy Sunday evenings.  The sun hasn’t set yet but the light outside is beginning to fade.  The clouds are thick and dark and the rain is subtly pitter pattering over the city.  And I can’t stop listening to this… 

In a Frou Frou Kinda Mood

So today being Sunday, its only appropriate that as I write this, I am sitting in my bed, still in the state that I woke up which was about 3 or so hours ago.  Sundays are a perfect day to kill on youtube.  And thats exactly what I have been doing since I got up three hours ago.  I’ve been watching people’s variations of Frou Frou’s Let Go.  I don’t know what it is about this song but it always takes me aback.  Its like one of those songs that makes your day.  I am hoping this song will be stuck in my head for a few hours because I have to go to work in the evening.  This is the best variation of the song that I have seen on youtube today.  They are a Capella group called The California Golden Overtones from UC Berkeley. 

Unprodictive Long Weekend

Well its the long weekend and once again my study schedule isn’t going as planned.  Its Sunday today and I have yet to begin work on my papers.  This is not a good thing because I know I going to deeply regret wasting this time come due dates.  But honestly, I am so exhausted these days its not even funny.  Sometimes I wish I could have some time where I don’t have to worry about work or school or deadlines…sometimes I wish I could just be.  People who make fun of a poli degree don’t realize that degrees like these mentally drain you and that has a toll on your body.  But whatever…they’re just haters.  Thank God I have Monday and Tuesday off from school.  Ive been worrying about doing some work these last two days. I think I am just going to literally do nothing tomorrow and give it my all starting on Tuesday.  We’ll see how well that goes. 

I am really tempted to talk about a dear friend of mine and her plight but I am hesitant to do so, so I guess won’t.  Ive been thinking a lot about her and I don’t know if that is necessarily a good thing.  Like literally this entire week, she’s been on my mind.

Speaking of girls, I think I have found the girl of my dreams.  She’s in the music video posted below.  She is literally the type of girl that I lay in bed thinking about night after night.  The smile….the long black hair…that hint of shyness on her face…perfection! Im going to go to bed now and hope she appears in my dreams tonight.
