I’m so happy because I found out that my office is closing at 2pm today, hooray!! It’s great to have a day off mid-week but it’s even nicer to have a shortened day the day before.
I’m off to the Mets/Phils game tonight but am most excited because it’s FIREWORKS night! When the Mets played at Shea Stadium I went to quite a few fireworks shows there because they were AMAZING. I’m hoping that this year doesn’t disappoint. But really, how can it be bad when I’ll be with my family and DJ. 🙂
I’m teaching tomorrow at 10am and am so last-minute Lenora right now. I need to make a ride with an America/patriotic theme and I still haven’t done it. Looks like it will probably happen tomorrow morning before class. So last-minute! Good thing I wake up early so I’ll definitely have the time.
I have however started to compile a list of some songs that might work. While there are a ton of rock and classic rock songs, I didn’t want the whole ride to sound the same, so my goal is to mix it up.
Here’s a preliminary list of a few songs I’m eyeing…
Waving’ Flag – K’naan (bonus is that I already have this song)
American Woman – Lenny Kravitz
Star Spangled Banner – Whitney Houston (I’ll have to actually listen to it to see what (if anything) I can do with it)
1812 Overture – Bond
4th of July (Fireworks) – Kelis (I think Kelis is hip-hop but I’m not even sure)
The American Way – Crystal Method (I either love them or hate them, so will have to check this song out)
Sweet Freedom – Safri Duo
Freedom – Akon
I think that quite a few of these songs won’t be obviously part of the theme but I think that’s a good thing. If all these songs work out, I’m well on my way!
Also hit up Party City yesterday to buy glow bracelets in red/blue for the class and this little treat for myself.
Have a happy 4th of July!
