Name: When You Grow Up Artist: Priscilla Ahn
I remembering growing up, I was very ambitious and had an extensive list of professions and dreams of what and who I wanted to be. I wanted to be a doctor, a waitress, a songstress, a pilot, a writer of children’s books, a fashion designer (for barbies), the new Jane Austen writing books in Old English so that no one could comprehend but would find beautiful, an English teacher, a “veteran” to me then- also more commonly known as a Veterinarian now, Taylor Hanson’s wife, Daniel Johns’ wife, River Cuomo’s wife, Brandon Boyd’s wife, Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s girl friend during 3rd Rock from the Sun turned to wife in 500 Days of Summer, a gold digger…no, not that gold digger, I really liked digging dirt, a counsellor, a psychologist, or a social worker…
I had dreams after dreams after dreams.
Now I am in Neuropsychiatry working with an amazing team of doctors, psychologists, and patients who make living worth the while, and everything just seems to be falling in to place that none of the above really matter anymore.
(Except the fact that I still want to be Joe’s wife…hahaha! Wishful thinking.)
This song makes me get the warm fuzzies and puts a permasmile on my face.
It’s a great reminder that when I grow up (as I grow up) I (just) want to be……..happy.

Mark Beasley - So Long
I had the chance to check out this local talent perform with another Canadian YouTube artist, Daniela Andrade. This song was sooo amazing acoustic and the lyrics are so beautiful. Been on repeat this whole week. Enjoy!
So Long (Lyrics):
Take your time, dear Take it all in stride, dear I want you to be mine, But Im afraid that fate defines that more assuredly than I
Go on be free, now Dont ever pin your wings down If all we have is time, I hate to leave it all behind but angel, you were born to fly
Youre my biggest inspiration and Ill try to make it known Youre the shelter that I run to; youre the reason that I call this place my home If your unveiling has you taken out of reach, I hope you understand the time we spent alone has meant the world to me
Dont let your doubts above you, I am still reminded of you every time I see the stars So just as certain as the sun keeps setting, Theres not a chance that Im forgetting the night you stole my heart I pray that life will take me where you go But if it cant, I hope you know Ive loved you from the start So if I never make it back into your arms… so long
