Today I'm grateful for . . . "The Voice". It is the best singing competition ever! :D Much better than "American Idol" or "X Factor" (which have gotten really old for me). Adam Levine is awesome (and hilarious) and all of the other judges have such great chemistry! I feel like they're really trying to help the contestants become better artists. They're not just trying to "beat" the other judges.
My favorite contestant of all time is Melanie Martinez, who made it pretty far last season but (sadly) didn't win. :( Here's her audition song, "Toxic", which was amazing! :D

30 Days of Gratitude--Day 5
I am a 17-year-old homeschooler, author, daydreamer, voracious reader, introvert, feminist, klutz, fangirl, and overuser of tape. I love the impossible (which might explain my obsessions with fantasy novels and Harry Potter) but I dip into the real world . . . occasionally. I tend to get overly emotional over my OTPs and eat sushi or listen to Taylor Swift to soothe the pain. If all else fails, reruns of “Doctor Who” or “Supernatural” is sure to help. I’m a big fan of mismatched socks, Cheez-Its, and bittersweet endings. I believe anything Rainbow Rowell, Felicia Day, or Lin-Manuel Miranda touches turns to gold. If you want to win the way to my heart, help me adopt a baby elephant. Or a llama. Or both. I write to survive and will often yell at my characters if they aren’t behaving, which is always. It doesn’t usually help. I am a contributor to the "Fauxpocalypse" anthology. You can follow me on Twitter at @Magic_Violinist.
