I am T-Pain.

Okay, obviously, I'm not.
But I did play with the much-talked-about "I am T-Pain" iPhone app for like two hours with Brooke on Wednesday night and did not want to put it down!

Basically it just takes your voice and auto-tunes it. Auto-tune was developed originally to correct the vocals of people like Ashlee Simpson who can't really sing but are singers anyway. T-Pain is famous because he was one of the first people (alongside Cher, of course – "Believe," anyone?) to use auto-tune to distort voices and make them kind of mechanical and able to hit waaay too many notes.

If you have not yet experienced the wonders of auto-tune, I bring you a couple of videos.

(Pardon a little language in this one.)

Even if you don't like Kanye, just wait out the first 40 seconds or so and see Charlie and Harry get auto-tuned!

The problem is that I keep getting these auto-tuned songs stuck in my head. For the record, it is very hard to hit like twelve notes that span three octaves in one syllable. (Not that I normally hit all the notes.)

Yay! The adorable Belen tagged me back in the day for a music survey thing, and it has taken me this long to respond, but here I go!

Image. Aren't they adorable?

The rules:
1. Write down the title and the artist.
2. The songs have to be in English; it's universal.

Top 40s at the moment
(I don't know if this means I list my top 40 songs of the moment or go through the American top 40 and pick the ones I like right now. I'm going to do the second. Ryan Seacrest's site, here I come!)
"Party in the USA" by Miley Cyrus (2)
"Down" by Jay Sean (3)
"Already Gone" by Kelly Clarkson (6)
"You Belong with Me" by Taylor Swift (9)
"Fireflies" by Owl City (10)
"One Time" by Justin Bieber (15)
"Fallin' for You" by Colbie Caillat (17)
"Body Language" by Jesse McCartney (25)
"Bad Romance" by Lady Gaga (28)

3 songs to represent my current feelings
"Where the Streets Have No Name" by U2
"Forgiven and Loved" by Jimmy Needham
"Tidal Wave" by Owl City

Wedding: "On a Night Like This" by Dave Barnes
Sexy: "Red Meets Blue" by Matt Werz
I hate my ex; he's a real jerk: "Since U Been Gone" by Kelly Clarkson
(Is there any other option, really?)
R&B Night: "Respect" by Aretha Franklin
Diamond: "Her Diamonds" by Rob Thomas
(I don't really know what diamond means for a song, so I hope that counts.)
Eccentric: "Superfabulous" by BT
British: "Fix You" by Coldplay
Adorable: "FNT" by Semisonic

I'm tagging Tay, Lola, MC, DJ, and Holland!

Wow, I kind of haven't blogged in FOREVER.

I know. I know. I've been a horrible blogger!
But I've been an AWESOME student!
Over the last month or so that I haven't posted, I've had lots of blog ideas come to mind and no time to put them into words and post them! I will try to give a really quick overview.

October 22: Drive with best friend Tay to her house for Fall break!

We might have listened to this song way too much.
And we might have stopped at this place too many times.
(Um, talk about yummy sweet tea! Why aren't these all over the country?)
Oh, and I might have jumped around a little in Taylor's house when I got the call that I won homecoming for the junior class!

October 25: Find out that best friend Emily got engaged to a great guy!
Can wait to see her as a beauuutiful bride this summer!

October 30: Get all dolled up for homecoming court and take too many pictures!
(Oh, and I might have worn that dress I blogged about wanting a while ago!)
With the girls!
With friend/small group leader/boss Abby!
Oh, also, it was such fun that my counterpart was one of my best friends, Micah!

October 31: Realize that I don't have a Halloween costume and decide last minute to be the swine flu!
Here I am with Tay (a.k.a. Blair Waldorf of Gossip Girls) She's acting like she doesn't want to catch the swine flu, but really she loves me.
Don't I have the cutest friends ever?

November 5: Go see my new physical therapist for the first time. Praying praying praying that I'm gonna get better.
Have a spur of the moment photo shoot with (almost) all my besties!
Isn't Kentucky/Asbury beautiful in the fall?
Aren't my friends gorgeous?

And awesome?

Yes, yes, I believe so.

November 19: Brush my teeth, put on my pajamas, turn down my covers, set my alarm, pick out my clothes for the next day, pack my backpack and go to bed go with all the girlies to see New Moon at the midnight showing!
(Despite the fact that I had a test the next day! College!)
Why, yes, we did sweet talk the ushers into taking us into an empty theater so that we could get the best seats and then save 19 of them for friends! What can I say, majoring in public relations pays off sometimes!

November 20: Get two hugs because it is National Hug a Cross-Country Runner Day.
And it kind of made my day...to still be considered that, I suppose.

I think that just about catches us up to now!

I know it looks like college has been nothing but fun and games this semester, but I've actually been working my behind off!

I cannot wait until Thanksgiving break! After that, I'll only have 10 more class days and one finals week until I'm a senior. BWHAAAT!? College just started!
