Slow It Down

Slow It Down

I ain’t trading my youth for no suit and jacket
I ain’t giving my freedom for your money and status
So don’t say I’m getting older
Cause I’ll say it when I do

Cause everybody I know, everybody I know
Is growing old, is growing old too quickly
And I don’t wanna go
So how am I supposed to slow it down so I can figure out who I am?

And I ain’t trading my dreams for no 401k
And I ain’t giving this fire for a cold, cold heart
So don’t say I’m getting colder
Cause I’ll say it when I do

Cause everybody I know, everybody I know
Is growing old, is growing old too quickly
And I don’t wanna go
So how am I supposed to slow it down so I can figure out who I am?

Some of us surviving
Some of us just roaming
Some of us just hoping the world will move more slowly
And some of us alive
We’re all gonna die one day
Yeah some of us surviving
Some of us just roaming
Some of us just hoping the world will move more slowly
And some of us alive
We’re all gonna die one day
Yeah, some of us surviving
Some of us just roaming
Some of us just hoping the world will move more slowly
Some of us alive
We’re all gonna die one day

Cause everybody I know, everybody I know
Is growing old, is growing old too quickly
And I don’t wanna go
So how am I supposed to slow it down so I can figure out who I am?

Suit and Jacket‘ ~Judah & the Lion~

This is the song I can’t stop listening to right now, everything about it is perfection in my mind. I’ve been feeling this way for a long time, time goes by too fast, there’s no slowing it down, and if only I’d learned when I was younger to figure out who I am and what’s important. I think I’m doing more than surviving now, the days of just trying make it through to the next, and feeling unable to, are behind me. I’m definitely not roaming, the days of doing that are long gone, and since I’m a home-body to the nth degree, roaming isn’t for me. Although, mentally I could say I’m roaming, my mind never staying on one thing too long, except for things things I’ve done or said that I regret….I’ll remember those til the day I die, like only a true introvert understands! 😀 The most obvious thing this song says is that we’re all going to die one day. If I’m in a down mood this is something that would make me cry, the futility of life and what are we even here for, and all that. But, since I’m not down, sad, or depressed I can look at that statement and believe it, but not have it get me down. I wish I’d known this fact earlier, I mean when a person’s young it’s easy to say those words but it’s another thing to truly believe it. By the time you realize what it means, youth is past and a person’s left wondering how that happened and why didn’t I know this sooner!

I’m a huge fan of /erratic/ so when I get a group notice of a new release I’m putting on my running shoes and getting there asap. The new releases this weekend are must-haves, I tell ya! The ‘Sabrina Top’ and ‘Skyler Denim Shorts’ are perfect together, but each would be just as stunning with other separates. They both come in tons of colours and there’s 3 bonus textures with the fatpack of each, which I can never resist. Both are Maitreya exclusive.

The ‘G1224’ hair is from tram.

The ‘Maddie’ skin in ‘honey’ tone is from The Skinnery, and it’s on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

This is an old old pose and no longer available.

It’s always beautiful at Isle of May, perfect for pictures.
