Oh My Lorde

You know, the majority of the concerts that I’ve attended in my lifetime have been for artists that came out during my parents’ time during their younger years. I’ve seen Journey a handful of times (kind of, even though I barely consider the group Journey because Steve Perry hasn’t been in the band for almost as long as I’ve been living), Heart, Stevie B, TKA, Pat Benatar, REO Speedwagon, Foreigner…and the list goes on.

The Best Kind Of Friend

Every once in a while, we meet people who we just click with. Sometimes, it happens within the very first conversation you have with them; other times, it happens later on. But either way, something about them peaks your interest, and makes you want to be their friend.

No Promises

I hate it when people say, “I promise.” / Everyone throws around promises / Like three-year-old flower girls / Running down the aisle.

Wearing Blue

Seven years ago today, my cousin, Matthew, passed away. He was thirteen years old—far too young to die. I honestly don’t even remember the details of how it happened, but none of that really matters to me. What matters is that it happened, and that he didn’t deserve it. He was too good of a person.

I’m A Writer, Part Two

I started writing at a really young age. I remember my teachers from elementary school submitting my assignments for contests that were held throughout the school year, and finding my work on the walls, in different halls. I always had a vivid imagination, consumed with the ideas of magic and grandeur, life always moving on and throwing you around. I started out as a little girl with a lot of things to think about and say, and paper just seemed to be the perfect place to do that.

Can’t Get You Out Of My Head

Alternatively known as Another Music Post From A Girl Who Listens To Music Like It’s Her Literal Conscience, this is basically an addition to past posts about songs that I just can’t seem to get out of my head. Because, you know what? I’ve listened to music for hours every single day of the last five years of my life, give or take a few years. I don’t know, I just can’t seem to not listen to it.

A 20-Something Reject

Have those who played it safe learn to from being rejected? Or do they do so that they never have to know what’s it’s like to feel rejected in the first place?

The Best Of Times…And The Worst

There are two things you need to know about me; one, I don’t drink very often, and two, if I’ve done something once and didn’t like the experience, I never try to do it again. So, clearly, there’s a story as to why I’m like that. And I’m going to tell you it.

Gotta Catch ‘Em All

Last summer, when the whole world was really into Pokémon Go, I had a very awkward encounter, because of the gaming app. It was probably the middle of August, and I was riding around the island with Jeanette. I didn’t really play the game, but she was really into it, so what we did a lot that summer was venture out and find as many Pokémon as we could.

Eye Contact

Holding eye contact with someone can be scary—especially when you’re shy. I’ve had a problem with looking people in the eyes for a long time, but I’ve been getting better at it. It’s hardly a problem for my anymore, because I’ve practiced by forcing myself to look people right in their corneas.
