I clicked this link in a facebook advertisement, and is it just me? Or does anyone else think its rather...stupid.

Some sample advice from the website, "Beware of friendly, outgoing guys."

I haven't been listening to as much music in the past year, which makes me sad. A casualty of this is that I also do not listen to many of my past favorites. But as I sit here and make a super cool American mix cd for Jing, I am reacquainted with songs I once loved. In return, they remind me of past thoughts and hopes I had for myself, my life, loved ones around me, and humanity in general. Music has that innate way of getting to you and your past, doesn't it? The songs you love are always a little more poetic than you wish you could be, and the just make me want to live more.

Anyways, the two I am listening to again are Run and Best of Me. Run is always great. Best of Me though, reminds me of JH last year, and all of my campers, and the hopes we as the JH Staff had for you all. As I listen to it right now, its a little wistful, a little emo, but a little hopeful and positive as well. And I hope that it makes you feel the same way. The world can be a rough place, but there are hopeful things to look forward to, positive things to focus on, feeling and thoughts to be shared, relationships with people to be forged, and love to be spread.

So in ten years, I hope this song comes on randomly on your playlists, and it reminds you of happy times in your youth, but not better times. Because our hope is that only better days lay ahead for us all.

Slideshow songs this year:
1. Alphaville - Forever Young (Dan Hamel mix)
2. Lifehouse - First Time
3. Syntax - Pride
4. Rob Thomas - Little Wonders
5. The Smashing Pumpkins - Tonight, Tonight

(Tonight, Tonight's repeated lyrics are "Believe in me". I believe in everyone, but dear, I believe in you a little bit more because you mean a little bit more).

Honestly, I don't know if I'm right about this. But if I'm wrong, I fear the outlook for mankind becomes a lot less bright and a lot more bleak.

Other than that though, life is, as it always should be, good.
