So Speak Low If You Speak Love

“Oh baby, baby, drink the poison, We can disappear Away, away from here…” -“Speak Low If You Speak Love” by My American Heart.   Biting your tongue is difficult. You have to try so hard not to say something that’s eating away at you; festering in your mind like a disease. Sometimes, if you’re not […]

How To Be A Heartbreaker

“Rule Number One: is that you gotta have fun. But baby when you’re done, You gotta be the first to run…” -“How To Be a Heartbreaker” by Marina & The Diamonds One thing I get asked a lot as I get older, especially around the holiday season, is if I have a boyfriend. The answer: […]

Maybe It’s Not My Weekend, But It’s Gonna Be My Year…

“Maybe it’s not my weekend, But it’s gonna be my year. And I’m so sick of watching as the minutes pass and I go nowhere. And this is my reaction to everything I fear. I’ve been going crazy, I don’t wanna waste another minute here.” -“Weightless” by All Time Low The end of 2013 is […]

We Go Together Or We Don’t Go Down At All

–All Time Low, “A Love Like War (ft. Vic Fuentes)”   So yeah. I lied. I’ve been gone for the last…nine days or so, but that’s because it’s been manic for me as of late, though I suppose in my line of work, I shouldn’t worry when it gets busy, but when it stops. Reviews, […]

Back From The Road: Part 3–“Virginia”

After two nights in L’argo, we left at a decent hour in the morning, heading to Williamsburg/Richmond, Virginia. We went to the hotel, which, while beautiful on the outside, was actually quite odd inside. The lobby was inviting, as were the staff, but the doors to the room took more effort to open than any […]

Back From The Road: Part 2–“Letter To The President”

  Following a very inspirational trip to Wilmington (seriously–wrote two sets of song lyrics on the drive), with a quick stop in Virginia, we made it to L’argo, Maryland. We checked in to the hotel, got situated, and I went down to the pool, desperate to move my muscles in some form. After swimming 210 […]

Back From The Road: Part 1–“I Don’t Wanna Be”

Last Sunday, I embarked on a road trip with my grandparents and family friend, which proved to be quite interesting. The first stop on the trip was the place I’d requested: Wilmington, North Carolina. As a huge fan of One Tree Hill, I have wanted to go there since I was eight or nine. Finally, […]

Hammers & Strings, Gears & Things (an Email From The Past, an Idea For The Future)

Trying to write. Cheers to that! My mind is finally moving with ideas. The gears are turning and I’m losing sleep thinking of it all. It all hit yesterday, like a train on a track. There is a contest I have been wanting to enter, which requires me to do a cover of a song, […]

Closing The Door To Open a Window (Hopefully)

  Last week, I got a call from the college I was supposed to be attending and they were talking about returning the money my mom had already paid, as well as whether or not I was certain I wouldn’t be attending. “We want you to have all the necessary information in order to make […]

All of a Sudden, I Miss Everyone

About a week ago, I wrote up a draft for another post–which I may or may not publish, I don’t know. But today, I had to write this post. Today is my graduation from high school. Today is the day I have been waiting for since I can remember; the day where I will walk across […]
