chasing cars while studying :)

i see that lately when i come here i only talk about songs. that's because those times are usually stolen moments from long hours of being in front of a computer or laptop working on something, or as is the case at the moment, studying.

i came here because i just wanted to note something. i noticed that when i'm already several hours deep into work/study, there's a song that i appreciate unexpectedly hearing. it gives me an unexpected boost of energy and motivation because of the inspiration it provokes at a time when i'm already tired and my endurance is strained. it's like when you're already dragging your feet along and then you're reminded or inspired to pick up your pace.

the song is chasing cars by snow patrol:

if i lay here, if i just lay here, would you lie with me and just forget the world?
forget what we're told, before we get too old.
show me a garden that's bursting into life.

when my work gets too technical, mechanical or boring, but i have to do it anyway, it helps to remember what inspiration is all about and to make the effort to inject that or something like it into what i'm doing.

i also get reminded that the work that i'm doing is a means to get to somewhere and so i have to finish it (and hopefully in the process give it my best shot) because that somewhere to where it leads to might just make it all worth it.

okay, back to studying now.
