Today was something to behold

I finally got my boot off today. For those of you who don’t know, I basically got in a fight with the stairs, and the stairs won (use your imaginations, people). ANYWHO, I haven’t been running drill in almost 2 weeks, and when I got back on the field today, I was worse then when I started. I missed dots, screwed up my flag work, accidentally hit one of my vets in the head, and managed to make my ancle hurt to the point of tears. This is one of those nights where there’s only one thing that can get me through everything. Well, now that I think of it, two things. Dryer’s Butter Pecan ice cream and…..MUSIC! 🙂 In this case, my song of choice for the week seems to be that of Miley Cyrus’ Party in the USA.

I hopped off the plane at LAX
With a dream and my cargidan
Welcome to the land of fame excess
Am I gonna fit in?
Jumped in the cab here I am for the first time
Look to my right
And I see the Hollywood sign
This is all so crazy
Everybody seem so famous!

My tummy’s turnin’
And I’m feeling kinda homesick
Too much pressure
And I’m nervous
That’s when the taximan turned on the radio

And a Jay Z song was on
And a Jay Z song was on
And a Jay Z song was on

(Chorus)
So I put my hands up
They’re playin’ my song
The butterflies fly away
Noddin’ my head like ‘Yeah’
Movin’ my hips like ‘Yeah’
I got my hands up
They’re playing my song
I know I’m gonna be okay
Yeah
It’s a Party in the USA
Yeah
It’s a Party in the USA

Get to club in my taxicab
Everybody’s lookin’ at me now
Like “Who’s that chick with rocking’ kicks she gotta be from out of town”
So hard with my girls not around me
It’s definitley not a Nashville party
‘Cause all I see are stilletos
I guess I never got the memo

My tummy’s turnin’
And I’m feeling kinda homesick
Too much pressure
And I’m nervous
That’s when the DJ dropped my favorite tune

And a Britney song was on
And a Britney song was on
And a Britney song was on

(Chorus)
So I put my hands up
They’re playin’ my song
The butterflies fly away
Noddin’ my head like ‘Yeah’
Movin’ my hips like ‘Yeah’
I got my hands up
They’re playing my song
I know I’m gonna be okay
Yeah
It’s a Party in the USA
Yeah
It’s a Party in the USA

Feel like hoppin’ on a flight
Back to my hometown tonight
Something stops me everytime
The DJ plays my song and I feel alright!

So I put my hands up
They’re playin’ my song
The butterflies fly away
Noddin’ my head like ‘Yeah’
(Noddin’ my head)
Movin’ my hips like ‘Yeah’
I got my hands up
They’re playing my song
I know I’m gonna be okay
Yeah
It’s a Party in the USA
(Na, na na na na na)
Yeah

So I put my hands up
They’re playin’ my song
The butterflies fly away
Noddin’ my head like ‘Yeah’
Movin’ my hips like ‘Yeah’
I got my hands up
They’re playing my song
I know I’m gonna be okay
Yeah
It’s a Party in the USA
Yeah
It’s a Party in the USA!

I blasted these lyrics this morning getting ready when I was kinda hurting from all the crap that went on this past week. I bopped along to the beat and belted out the lyrics like there was no one home. Unfortunately, there was, and all three of them told me to shut the crap up so they could sleep. But I still sang. And when I played it again on my way home, they helped me remember that I went into this with one goal: I wanted to be part of a team. Like those in Hollywood, I have a goal. While guard may not be my DREAM job, It’s still something I love to do. And no matter how much I screw up, I have to keep trying.
And I need to remember to pack extra Icy Hot patches.
