I grew up in the golden age of Madonna - and even when she is at her most shocking, I can't help but loving and admiring her. She's smart, creative and oh, so talented (just ignore the scary looking arms.)
For years, I bought every album she put out on the week it was released, and I'd find myself going back to her songs over and over again when I was happy, sad or just wanted to dance. I somehow missed out on her most recent release (I'll blame it on my travels) but I recently heard "Jump" and fell a bit in love with the lyrics:
I've certainly taken these lines to heart and incorporated them in my life. Since I left home at 18 I haven't stayed in one place longer than 4 years - and that was only once, most places I've lingered less than 2 years. I've enjoyed myself, met tons of amazing people and learned a lot along the way.
