Today is a pretty exciting Sunday. After months of preparation and weeks of work, I submitted my last application for grad school. *Pops open champagne bottle and dances around house* Needless to say, I have high hopes that I will receive good news in the next couple of months. For along time I have been maintaining a cool head over the whole affair. I haven't allowed myself to get over excited nor under excited. Besides, even if I submitted the applications, it doesn't mean I will accepted. Although, I can hope after all ; ) Not too surprisingly, the song "High Hopes" by Irish rock band Kodaline has been running through my head all day. The song isn't necessarily the cheeriest of toons, but the message is one I have cherished for a long time. When your world is changing, or about to change in a big way, there is a chance you can look for something amazing come along down the road. I've transcribed the lyrics down below so you can share in my love for this song.
"High Hopes" - Kodaline
Broken bottles in the hotel lobby Seems to me like I'm just scared of never feeling it again I know it's crazy to believe in silly things But it's not that easy
I remember it now, it takes me back to when it all first started But I've only got myself to blame for it, and I accept it now It's time to let it go, go out and start again But it's not that easy
But I've got high hopes, it takes me back to when we started High hopes, when you let it go, go out and start again High hopes, when it all comes to an end But the world keeps spinning around
And in my dreams, I meet the ghosts of all the people who have come and gone Memories, they seem to show up so quick but they leave you far too soon Naïve I was just staring at the barrel of a gun And I do believe that, yeah
But I've got high hopes, it takes me back to when we started High hopes, when you let it go, go out and start again High hopes, oh, when it all comes to an end Now the world keeps spinning Yeah, the world keeps spinning around
High hopes, it takes me back to when we started High hopes, when you let it go, go out and start again High hopes, oh, And the world keeps spinning Ooh, yeah, this world keeps spinning
How this world keeps spinning around
Have a great weekend everyone and I will see you on Thursday!
