I've never been much of a writer but I want to try doing BEDA (blog every day in April). To get a fresh start with this goal I started this new blog. I would like to use this blog as a journal as well- so among other things I want to include memories, cute things my children do, and whatever else I think of.

The name and address of this blog comes from the song "Name" by the Goo Goo Dolls. It has for a long time been one of my favorite songs. The lyrics are wonderful and can mean different things to different people.


And even though the moment passed me by
I still can't turn away
Cuz all the dreams you never thought you'd lose
Got tossed along the way
And letters that you never meant to send
Got lost or thrown away

And now we're grown up orphans
And never knew their names
We don't belong to no one
That's a shame
But you could hide beside me
Maybe for a while
And I won't tell no one your name
And I won't tell 'em your name

And scars are souvenirs you never lose
The past is never far
Did you lose yourself somewhere out there?
Did you get to be a star?
And don't it make you sad to know that life
Is more than who we are

We grew up way too fast
And now there's nothing to believe
And reruns all become our history
A tired song keeps playing on a tired radio
And I won't tell no one your name
And I won't tell 'em your name
I won't tell em' your name
Oooh, oooh, oooh
I won't tell em' your name

I think about you all the time
But I don't need the same
It's lonely where you are
Come back down
And I won't tell 'em your name


The song can be sympathetic, hopeful, and always helps me relax. I'm hoping that writing on this blog will also become a way to help me relax and organize my thoughts. It will take some practice but I hope to improve my writing along the way! Until next time!
