Eh, it’s beginning to get a lot colder here in Maryland. It’s not as bad as it was being in Denver on a cold day, but it’s starting to get chilly. The other day it attempted to snow, but it didn’t stick at all. I was disappointed for a moment, but then remembered my dad had to take the bus home so I crossed my fingers and wished that it would stop snowing. It’s totally not fun taking the train & bus when it’s chilly outside, but you do what you’ve got to do until you get a car.
I was actually going to go to the Smithsonian the other day, but it was too cold and I didn’t feel like taking the bus all the way to Shady Grove then riding the train down to Union. So instead I enjoyed the comfort of my house and daydreamed about summer. I sort of miss those humidly hot days here in Maryland. Those days when all you did was listen to upbeat summer anthems while wearing colorful clothes. Summer, and even Spring, making being flirty and wearing colorful clothes so much more fun. You can flirt in winter, but it’s not as sexy because you don’t get to wear all the colorful revealing clothes.
My reminiscing about summer and warm weather just inspires me to start vacationing more and perhaps going down to Miami for the weekends. But until that becomes a reality (graduating & having a job to afford weekend trips,) then I’ll just enjoy one of my favorite summer time songs, “Climbing Walls.”
I guess it doesn’t have to just be a track for summer, because apparently it’s winter and I’ve been jamming to this song all day. The song came out in 2010, and it’s be an awesome Australian indie band called Strange Talk. The band has a lot of good songs (including “Eskimo Boy”) but “Climbing Walls” is a formidable track with a vibrant video to match.
Every time I watch the video and listen to the song, I feel like just dancing around and daydreaming about hot men, summer breeze, lemonade, and happiness. Yup, pretty simple. It’s just one of those songs that can turn a cold depressing day into a vibrant explosion of colorful inspiration. It makes you just want to get up and go create!
Like I said, it’s a song that came out in 2010 but it’s still relevant. The tune is so catchy, and the video is just so colorful! Everyone needs a splash of color in their lives, but they don’t know how to get it. So if you’re feeling sad or cold, then turn up your speakers and bug out to the sounds of Strange Talk’s hit song “Climbing Walls.”
Oh, and after you’ve bugged out to “Climbing Walls” then wind down with the mellow sounds of “Eskimo Boy.”
