Hello, lovelies! April flew by, and May is basically over. I'm stunned, to be honest, but a new month means new favorites so I suppose it's not all bad. Here's what I've been loving these past few months.
* * *
Okay. The Pandora radio station thingymabob has become my addiction. But it's so easy to just pop it on and have songs that I like just instantly appear, which is amazing. These are just some of the songs I've been loving recently.
Ed SheeranL "Tenerife Sea" and "Photograph"
These two songs are just . . . the epitome of everything that is lyrical genius. Ed Sheeran has always had a way with words and he's so good at blending his music and creating beautiful pictures. Tenerife Sea is just the most adorable love song I've ever heard, and the Photograph music video is really cute because it's all old home videos from Ed Sheeran's life.
Shawn Mendes: "Imagination" and "Stitches"
Relient K: "Let It All Out"
It feels so mismatched when you go from verse to chorus and then later towards the end of the song, but it's unorganized in the best way. I was introduced to this song by the hilarious YouTube makeup artist Jaclyn Hill, and I just fell in love with it. It's sad, but there's some really gorgeous underlying tones to it that make the song so unique.
Panic! At the Disco: "Nine In the Afternoon"
I'm not quite sure why I like this song. I think it just has a really bubbly feel to it, without feeling overly cheesy. It puts me in a good mood whenever I hear it.
Secondhand Serenade: "Fall For You"
This song just feels so mellow but intense at the same time, and I really love the singer's voice. I haven't heard too many other songs by this group, but I do really enjoy this one.
Emblem3: "3000 Miles"
I want to say this band was on the X Factor, but I don't know for sure. I really liked this song, because the words behind it and the melody work really perfectly together and the first time I heard it I became a little obsessed. I just don't like how it has a little bit of that "typical boy band" feel to it.

I admit, I'm obsessed. I love rompers so much. It's basically a dress, but shorts, so you don't have to worry about accidentally flashing someone or having a gust of wind kick up the skirt part. Also, rompers are a whole outfit, so you don't have to waste time in the morning trying to find a shirt and a pair of shorts that match. You can just grab this little dude and voila! Instant outfit. I have a black one and a black and white patterned one, and I would wear them every single day if that was socially acceptable.
Also, can we talk about Tumblr? I don't have one, but I'll always see Tumblr posts floating around the internet, and some of them are hilarious.
This first one just made me laugh because how cute would that be to see a bunch of angels trying to pair people up.
And then Tumblr just gets one of those posts where you sit there going, "Wow. Same."
And then out of NO WHERE Tumblr suddenly gets deep. This is why I think Tumblr posts are some of the best things that have been created ever. Perhaps someday I'll have to get on the Tumblr bandwagon.
My last favorite of this little two-month installment is this gif:
Now, it's about 500 times funnier if you actually blow on your screen like it tells you to. If you didn't do it the first time, I highly encourage you to do it now, because the first time I did it I was cry-laughing for a good half hour. It was kind of amazing.

Those are all my favorites! Sorry about going MIA again. I could give you a boatload of boring, vapid, and ridiculous reasons why I wasn't blogging, but you don't want to hear them. (: Things might stay fluctuating for a little bit since I have exams coming up, but summer should give me a chance to get my act together.
That is all.
(Also: Happy Memorial Day, as it'll be Memorial Day when this gets published. Take care to remember the soldiers who fought for your country, and thank one if you know one.)
