Emmet Cahill (Celtic Thunder) - Isle of Hope, Isle of Tears
Gonna use my break between classes tomorrow to explore campus instead of just coming back to my apartment. Hopefully that’ll help improve my mood.

I would probably be more excited about driving back to campus tomorrow if I had friends, but instead I don’t really want to and I’m dreading going to Modern Britain on Tuesday.
Ah, mood swings. Hopefully the medication will sort those out.
Okay… That’s it… I think I’m going to set this as my alarm on my phone so I can feel like I’m waking up in heaven on a daily basis.There’s just something about children’s choirs.
There’s just something about this song
Okay, let me tell you a thing about this song. My mother is a nurse in the NICU with small premature babies. and she had one baby that was born addicted to 5 different drugs. Needless to say, the poor baby had to suffer through intense withdrawals, and my mom discovered that this song was incredibly soothing for the baby while he went through all of his pain. She would play this during his rougher patches, and it would calm him down. So yes, there is something about this song.
This song is a mele (soft, metered song with music) in contrast to an oli (a chant), and translated, it’s a song actually for Chief Kalakaua and Cheifess Lili’ulani. It tells of the beautiful scenery of all the islands, and specifically, a beautiful blooming flower that withstands the summits of each significant peak of Hawaii (including Mauna Kea!).
If you contrast the words mele and oli, you will hear them (say them outloud!) how soft, and harsh they are respectively. This mele is comprised of mostly soft, flowing words (save for the name of the mountains!) and the combination of those beautiful words used to name beautiful things and the Children’s Chorus is probably what it is.
Peace(fulness) transcends language.
enough dogs for you kendra?
Oh my God, hahahahhahahaaha
Soooo I finally got put on medication for my anxiety. Hopefully it helps, but we’ll see.
The only thing standing in my way of being home is 50 minutes of German class.
Oh, and a five hour drive.
honestly my dad is such a freak he never says goodnight like a normal person he just says “i’ll be back” and he goes upstairs and when you ask where he is or go looking for him hes asleep and the next morning when you see him he just says “good morning im back’ like what is wrong with him
Tomorrow’s five hour drive home will consist of country music because there won’t be anyone in the car to judge me for it.
It’s my guilty pleasure actually I just really like some country music because it’s catchy okay
