"Shake It Out" and the final week of college


 I am currently in my last week of college before study leave. It's really hard saying goodbye to this amazing place where I have spent two brilliant years, and to the wonderful people I have had the privilege of spending those two years with.

 It is also a very hectic time; there is a lot to do before I leave. But hopefully we can relax and have some fun on the last day.

 I have recently been listening a lot to "Shake It Out" by Florence and the Machine, a song I discovered via the talent show The Voice UK in which it was sung in a group performance. I was determined to find the original version of this amazing song, and after some searching on the Internet I finally succeeded.

 As far as Florence and the Machine is concerned, I like some of her songs and am not so keen on others, but Shake It Out I love. It is so powerful with a strong and important message. I can't stop listening to it.

 I may always associate this song with the last week of college and the mixed sentiments I feel about leaving. I'm sad to go but excited about the road ahead, wherever it may lead me.

 I will probably always look back on this as a very important and special time in my life, and I'm glad now that I've decided to do a blog post to remind me of this time and this song which is very special to me now as a result.

 Thanks for reading,
