My ears piped up like a cat's would at a sudden sound and I thought... "I am simply dreaming this." How could one of my favourite songs randomly start playing out of nowhere? I thought I was daydreaming. Though the sound got closer and closer (as did the drop)...
A car pulled up next to me with the bass making its windows vibrate and I started to smile at my file. I was not daydreaming, in fact, the source of the sound was now right next to me and at around 07:50 on that chilly June morning, I was actually feeling warm inside. I started to dance (but oh so stealthily, I didn't want someone to think I was having an epileptic fit in the car).
In that moment, when the song dropped, when I felt so relaxed... I remember, I finally felt a sense of peace :)
The song was Orjan Nilsen's "Violetta".
I waited until the song ended and I walked to my exam with a bit of a happy bounce in my stride. The song kept playing over and over in my head throughout the exam and the best was that I had done so many past papers and example questions in my studying that the final exam felt almost like a breeze.
The car that had parked next to me that morning was still next to my car, so I wrote a thank you letter to the person and said that they honestly made my morning by playing one of my favourite songs. I wonder what that person thought of my note :)
