It seems like Hanson fans are always talking about how Hanson can make a horrible day better in some capacity, whether it be listening to a song, watching a video, or finding out something new about tour plans. I can't say I ever agree. I enjoy a new FUTY as much as the next person, but when I'm down, something so simple as listening to a song does nothing for my overall mood. It might be a high point of my day, but it's not going to magically make me feel better.
I've been really stressed the past few days. My classes are starting to overlap with big assignments, and I've been writing papers and reading mass amounts constantly with little time left over for myself. I finally made a little time for myself tonight and took the time to watch Strong Enough to Break with the commentary. I've had it for over a week now and never had time until now (honestly I don't have time now either--I should be sleeping).
I'm surprised to say that it legitimately made me feel better. Maybe it was just a welcomed break from all of the work I've been doing, but somehow I feel like watching any old movie wouldn't have done the same. I think it really got me pumped for tour, knowing that I'll see these amazing guys and their music in two weeks. But beyond that, it made me realize that there are bigger problems in the world. I can mope over my homework all I want, but I'll still be very low down on the proverbial totem pole of problems. There's no real point to this post, but this is the first time I've ever felt any real relief from the simple action of watching a video, and I think it's worth noticing.
