if u play me any songs from the Sound of Music I will probably cry. not sure why. they are just that good. “The Sound of Music” itself just has such a great melody… like when it shifts suddenly when it goes “to siiiiiiing through the niiiiiiiight.” tears every time.
also “Edelweiss” cause we used to sing it in German back in high school (also it touches me musically, listen to a piano rendition sometime and it will be more obvious). we had a lot of songs that we sang, but that one is special cause we did it at our Oktoberfest when we had a sweet little ritual for swearing in German club officers. I miss it. m gonna cry
like I never even saw the movie until I was 18 or so, I just remembered all the songs on their own merit from elsewhere. pretty sure I’d heard every single one of them and knew them somehow from when I was a kid… except “Climb Every Mountain.” still don’t know that one very well. brb gonna go learn it
DO urselves a fuckin favor and watch the 2011 Winnie the Pooh movie, it’s soooo cute and funny. i can’t even believe it’s real. a traditionally animated movie with absolutely no pop culture references or ~dark and edgy~ stuff or any stupid shit actually got a theatrical release in 2011. i love u disney
i love recommended blog posts. it’s great seeing posts marked with tags that i specifically blacklisted. it sure makes me feel swell seeing those things on my dash
I did these exact tests a few months ago! I don’t know about you but I actually had a lot of fun with it, even though I struggled a bit.
some of them were really fun! a little like playing quiz games or puzzles. just didn’t care for anything involving numbers :S i thought the number sequences would NEVER END and i haven’t done math in forever so that was frustrating
i finally did my neuropsych evaluation today to see how my brain works or somethin and wow where do i even begin. it really did take almost six hours, not including hour lunch break, but it felt like it went pretty fast
there were like, all these different… things?? i had to do. they typically started out easy and then got REALLY HARD ahhh. like first there was a kind of puzzle where i had to copy patterns using colored blocks, and then there were math story problems i had to do in my head (i wasn’t entirely sure i still knew how to do long division or multiplication HELP), i listened to short stories and had to repeat as many details as i could remember, same with lists of words, i did that horrible thing where there were names of colors but they were all printed in different colored ink, i copied a geometrical picture and then had to draw it twice again from memory, i sorted cards with words on them into as many categories as possible, defined words, listed as many words that started with a certain letter as i could in a minute (I felt like I kept freezing up and only got a measly number of words in, but she said I was actually really good at that one so idk), answer questions like “what is water made of? who wrote Hamlet? who was Mahatma Gandhi? what language has the most native speakers?” allllll sorts of things
the only one i felt that just about broke me was a thing where i got two different words and had to describe how they were alike, like music/tide, wish/expect, but the last one was allow/restrict and i just. my head damn near exploded trying to verbalize an explanation for that one. i mean there were other puzzles i felt like i did bad on, like repeating sequences of numbers, but that one word pair was the only thing that made me really flustered
ah and finally there were physical tests for my sense of hearing, vision, and touch, which were weird but easy, and a questionnaire about myself and my feelings
i go to learn the results in two weeks. i’m real nervous but idk exactly why. the fact that i stumbled so hard over the abstract word thing really worries me. idk i mean they were designed to start easy and then get devilishly hard, so maybe a lot of people stumble over the later word pairs, but idk. also i think we will find i have an auditory learning style, that was one of the things they were trying to find and it stuck out to me today. i’ve never thought about it much cause all the quizzes about it i took in high school were shitty
so yeah. fun times
