My Lyfestyle Through Lyrics

Nothing Even Matters

I was telling a friend that the last time I loved an entire album from the first song to the last song was Lauryn Hill’s album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill. I’m still sitting here trying to think of ANY album that spoke to me and STILL speaks to me as did Lauryn’s album. NOPE! I’m getting nothing. Why is that even of any significance to be writing about? I don’t know, but what I do know is that Apple has changed the way in which most of us in this world purchase music. Instead of going in store to purchase a CD, we purchase only the songs we like on one album. That’s unless you’re a fan of a specific artist and buy the album without caring what reviews have said about the album. Excuse me as I ramble on, I’m sitting here missing someone specific and trying to channel my energy into blogging… once again.

I was in the mood for some slow jazz with a little bit of an R&B twist. I always look to D’Angelo when I’m in that kind of mood, but I happened upon Lauryn Hill’s song Nothing Even Matters. How’d I forget about this song? I even forgot that D’Angelo was featured on this song. Since this morning’s pleasant finding, it’s been on repeat while I stared out my window daydreaming. I was having one of those moments (okay, the entire day I’ve been feeling this way) where I didn’t want to be bothered with anything or anyone, but ONE specific person. I was trying to occupy my time with errands, work and things around the house. Wiping down the kitchen counter and table for the nth teenth time wasn’t doing much.

What is it about the love for someone that makes us feel invincible and even sometimes carefree? Today I was feeling that way. How relatable and profound the lyrics to this song were:

See I don’t need no alcohol
Your love makes me feel ten feet tall
Without it I’d go through withdrawal
Cause nothing even matters, at all

That’s essentially how I feel. Those lyrics alone speak volumes as to what I feel for a certain someone. *sigh*  Wondering and wandering; the story of my life today. Gosh! You’d think I needed to get out more! Actually… I really do need to get out more… like… out of state and out of this country. You can bet this song will be one of the songs on my drive playlist. 🙂

What was the last album you liked in its entirety from front to back? What song speaks to how you feel deeply about your love? Has love ever made you feel like nothing even matters, and did that love last?

Until Next Post,



Nothing Even Matters as performed by Lauryn Hill Featuring D’Angelo

Now the skies could fall
Not even if my boss should call
The world it seems so very small
Cause nothing even matters at all
See nothing even matters
See nothing even matters at all
Nothing even matters
Nothing even matters at all
See I don’t need no alcohol
Your love makes me feel ten feet tall
Without it I’d go through withdrawal
Cause nothing even matters, at all
Nothing even matters
Nothing even matters at all
Nothing even matters
No-thing matters at all
These buildings could drift out to sea
Some natural catastrophe
Still there’s no place I’d rather be
Cause nothing even matters to me
See nothing even matters
See nothing even matters to meee
Nothing even matters
Nothing even matters to me
You’re part of my identity
I sometimes have a tendency
to look at you religiously
Cause nothing even matters, to me
Nothing even matters
Nothing even mat-ters
Said it don’t matter, baby baby
Don’t matter
Now you won’t find me at no store
I have no time for manicures
With you it’s never either or
Cause nothing even matters, no more
See nothing it don’t matter
See nothing even mahhh-ahhhters no more
Nothing even mahh-ters
Nothing even matters no more
Now my team could score
and make it to the Final Four
Just repossessed my four by four
Cause nothing even matters, no more
Nothing even matters
Nothing even matters no more
Nothing even matters
No no more
To me, to me, to me, to me
To me, to me, to me, to me to me to me
(freestyle singing to end)

Several of these young men are now realizing that #trackandfield should’ve been a major part of their lives earlier on in their #athletic careers at HF. Tomorrow they lay it all on the track at the @ihsa_il Boys State Final Meet. Last week, our HF Girls Team were Runners Up. This week I’m praying our boys pull out a #team win. 💪🏾 #GoVikings #hfboystrackandfield #tracknation #fieldnation #tracklife #coach #athlete

In March 2017, @pttheshaq introduced @clark_the_shark10 to #shotput and #discus. Brett Young, father of #KDYoung of @gamecockthrows invited her out to a session we had scheduled May 2017 to prepare her for 2017 @usatf Jr. Nationals out in Sacramento. The rest is history.... Thank you to the Mount Pulaski Board Members 🏛for recognizing Cassidy Clark on her recent athletic achievements 🥇🥈at the 2018 #IESA #TrackAndField #StateChampionship Meet. 🔥💣 I absolutely am blessed and honored to be her #coach.

It’s a tough pill to swallow knowing that our girls were the 3A State Runners Up last year and again this year. Last year we fell short by 4 pts and this year we fell short by 6 pts. Thank you @ihsa_il for running a wonderful meet and thank you @eiu for being a wonderfully organized host! This summer is about getting faster, stronger and better. I’m grateful for this @hfvikinggirlstf staff, these hard working girls and especially our Athletic Director Dan Vosnos.

💿⚫️🚨STATE CHAMPION ALERT🚨⚫️💿 Congratulations to Cassidy Clark @clark_the_shark10 of Mt. Pulaski Middle School on winning 🥇the #ShotPut for IESA 8th Grade Girls with a PR of 33’7.5” and 🥈placing 2nd in #discus with a throw of 100’3”. Everyone knows the throw events are about inches. Going into the finals for shot put she sat in 2nd place. No one in the finals had improved their distance. 😔Her PR coming into the state meet was 32’11” 👍🏾of which she threw the previous weekend at the sectional meet. In order for her to take 1st place, she needed to throw beyond 33’5”... 6” more from her PR. 🤔 Seeing her launch the shot out there was beautiful. The eruption of her entire family and friends speaks for itself. We knew she had punched a powerful one out there, we just didn’t know how far... 🗣Turn the volume up to hear it all play out!🗣 Thank you to the Clark Family and Friends for such an awesome support base for Cassidy. It’s absolutely amazing and humbling to be her coach. Thank you Coach Johnson of @aretethrowsnation and Coach Angel @coachangeldls for your ongoing support and efforts. #ATNMidwest truly appreciates everything you do for the greater good of this sport and the #throw events! #atn #aretethrowsnation #tcr #throwingchainreaction #trackandfield #tracklife #tracknation #fieldnation #thrownation
The Track Season in Review: 2 weeks left with my @hfvikingsthrows boys. This season has been one to remember! Being a part of both the 2018 HF Boys and HF Girls Track & Field programs has been an honor and learning experience. Both Head Coaches have put in a lot of work preparing their teams for a successful season. State is this week for the girls and next week for the boys. I’m excited to get back to the drawing board for the off season once the season has come to an official end. If they thought weights during the season was tough, it’s about to get a WHOLE LOT MORE FUN! 😏 #GoVikings #HFTrackandField #RedSmoke #HFFamily #HFVikingsThrows #HFThrows #TrackAndField #FieldNation #TrackNation #TrackLife #Blessed
To my beloved athletes: The greatest part about being a #coach is getting to know my athletes and their families. I consider each and every athlete I work with my child. My compassion for each athlete working to better themselves comes from a motherly perspective. Thank you to every athlete I’ve worked with over the near decade I’ve been coaching and personal training! I truly appreciate your time, effort, work ethic and especially your love in return. I’m humbled by the trust and confidence each of you give me. Lord knows I’m grateful for the gift with which He’s blessed me and in return I’m able to share with all you talented throwers. Mālo aupito! Ofa lahi atu, Coach #coach #mother #athletes #thankful #happymothersday #icantfiteveryoneinthispost 🤦🏽‍♀️lol
