High Hopes – Stream of Consciousness Saturday #SoCS

socs-badge-2019-2020

Today’s prompt is “hope” and I’d hoped to come up with something creative for such a good word, but I just ended up stuck with a couple of earworms instead. The songs wouldn’t leave my head, so I’m going to share these two inspirational songs (each with the same title) with you instead. If you end up with an earworm from them, I’m sorry. But it’s my hope you’ll find them inspiring.

First up is “High Hopes” from Panic! At The Disco, from the album “Pray For The Wicked”:

And second is the classic “High Hopes” by Frank Sinatra, from the movie “A Hole in the Head”:

Young at Heart – Stream of Consciousness Saturday (young/old/age)

socs-badge

I wasn’t sure at first if I could come up with something for today’s prompt, but then as I thought about it for a couple of moments, one of my all-time favorite songs came to mind – Young At Heart from Frank Sinatra – and that gave me an idea, for I do feel that I am young at heart. I enjoy playing games, including video games when I have the time (yes, I consider myself somewhat of a gamer chick). I still like to watch cartoons (though not so much the newer cartoons) and Disney movies. I like to read YA novels. And yes, I occasionally still buy “collectible” figures and plush toys. I don’t feel like I’m almost 40 years old.  I still feel like I’m maybe in my 20s, which could be why my tastes and interests are still in that age range. I only realize how old I’m getting when the calendar turns and my birthday comes around. But I’m sort of like Peter Pan, I guess. I don’t want to grow up. I prefer staying young at heart,  having fun, and dreaming dreams and hoping for fairy tales to come true. You may think me a bit of a naive, hopeless romantic and optimist, but that’s just how I am.
