Hall of Fame

Hello everyone! How has your day been?

I feel that positivity and self determination can get people very far in life. My accelerated¬† geometry teacher, Mr. Billingsley, always quoted this, “attitude over aptitude.” According to dictionary.com, “attitude” is “manner, disposition, feeling, position, etc., with regard to a person or thing; tendency or orientation, especially of the mind” and “aptitude” is capability; ability; innate or acquired capacity for something; talent; readiness or quickness in learning; intelligence.” I agree with my teacher because a positive attitude and dedication increases your effort in whatever you’re working on. Whenever Mr. Billingsley gave us a math chapter test, we would always groan and say things like, “Well, who’s ready to fail!? There goes my B… At least you have a B…” But he would always cheer us up and play his theme song, which is Hall of Fame by The Script ft. Will.i.am.

Saying things like “I can never get it…it’s too hard…this is too difficult for me…only in my dreams…I give up,” will only hold you back from being awesome. Hopefully this song will help your change those thoughts. Let’s figure out the meaning of “Hall of Fame,” for all those who are in need of encouragement (which is everyone)!

Paradise

Hi guyz!
How was your week? I hope it was awesome. If not, have some Coldplay. The song I chose for the week is the awesome “Paradise” by Coldplay. What I like about Coldplay’s songs are that the majority of their songs are extremely metaphorical and the lyrics can always paint an image in your mind. “Paradise,” in particular, makes me imagine of a clear sun rise that tells me a brand new start of a great day. The song also reminds of of a great book I’m reading, but scroll past the usual post to read about the song’s relation to the book.

Soooo? What did you think? (sigh)…One of my favorite songs….
Anyways! Let’s pull out the meaning of this awesome song. Continue reading

The Climb

Hi there!
If you read this title and thought to your self, “Miley Cyrus…nope, gonna ignore this post,” or something similar to that, I would like to say that it doesn’t matter about the person who wrote it, sang it, or how popular it is. It is about the content of the song that people glaze over. The song is called “The Climb” and what I love about this song is that this is a great reminder of perseverance and inner strength.

Let’s dig out the meaning now!
