I have always wished life was like a musical and that I could break out into song whenever it felt right. Lately I’ve been watching New Girl a lot and I think that the most endearing part of that show is how Jess makes silly little songs when the mood strikes. In a lot of ways I find her, despite her awkwardness, to be the coolest female in prime time TV.
Every once in a while I get kinda nutty and start singing show tunes. Sometimes my inner geek has no filter and the first time I did it in this relationship, I was convinced that Hugh would break up with me. But he didn’t. He actually made a request and I ran to Spotify to find “On the Street Where You Live“.
Then one thing lead to another and now we have an entire show tunes playlist.
I like being one of those girls who expresses her emotions-even if they reveal insecurities or far fetched dreams. It makes me happy. For years I was on a stage pretending to be someone else, and singing their dreams. Somewhere along the line, it must have rubbed off on me.
Now that I am stupidly in love, I find myself singing a lot.
The world needs more music.
