It's exhausting. The uncertainty, consistently elevated heart rate, feeling like you're drowning. The anxiety that's fully justified, but there's no fix for the root of the problem; it feels like it's never going to end. I'm a very anxious person. I have over a decade's worth of knots in my back and a catalog of … Continue reading The One About Fear
Oh look, it's almost 20 days into 2020 and I'm finally writing my first blog of the year! So much for regular blogging... Whatever. It's my website. I do what I want. In the beginning of 2019, I outlined 3 goals on here: 1) write more, 2) put out more music, and 3) be a … Continue reading 2020 Vision
I've never felt comfortable in my own skin. I've gotten various compliments over the years about how confident I seem at times; either people are blind or I'm good at faking. It's probably some kind of combination of the two. Over the past year or so, I have grown into myself a bit. I've stepped … Continue reading Skin
I was never a daddy's girl. For most of my childhood, I couldn't stand my dad; mostly because he was the parent who was in charge of punishments, and I was a little hellion. It felt like the only time I saw my dad was when he was yelling at me, while my brother actually … Continue reading A Stereotypical Father’s Day Blog
If I didn't live it, I'd look at the story of how my boyfriend and I got together and think, "Geez, that's a bunch of rom-com bullshit.
Who am I kidding? I still think that anyway.
I've been writing since I learned how to form sentences. Technically, I've been keeping a journal since elementary school. However, the earliest complete volumes of my life date back to 2012. From March of 2012 to now, I've completely filled two books and 3/4 of a third book with the best times of my life. … Continue reading Journals and Journeys
It's common knowledge that guitar picks are the easiest thing to lose. You can start out with an entire pocket full, then suddenly they're all gone. Eventually some of them turn up, but it's almost guaranteed that there will always be at least one or two that will never be seen again. Unless you're me. … Continue reading Pick Theory
I grew up going to church. I bounced in and out of different christian homeschool groups from elementary school until halfway through high school. I belonged to multiple youth groups; I was even on the Conference Council on Youth Ministries for a couple of years. I know the church. The more I got to know … Continue reading On The Church
Over two months ago, I signed a lease with my boyfriend. It's kind of a scary step to take; we probably took it a little bit too soon, but it's paid off so far. I feel like books and movies turn moving in together into this big romantic gesture; that's all bullshit. In this economy? … Continue reading On Moving In
I have an overflowing basket of laundry to fold. It's been at least a week of this thing sitting in the middle of my bedroom. But I'm lazy. I have a pile of things that I still need to find a place for. I haven't personally cooked a meal (unless you count salads and lean … Continue reading Lazy
