When I am in the midst of one of my dreamy moods where I'm imaging myself walking hand in hand with a crush down a neon-lit shopping mall hallway, I often pretend we're walking into paradise while engulfed in the sounds of an ethereal soundtrack. This fantasy of mine is reoccurring, so I'm always … Continue reading MALSI Shows Us What She Wants With Her New Single DOWN
Sides One and Two: Rob Sheffield’s Love Is A Mix Tape and Me
(Two of many copies of Love Is A Mix Tape along with a tracklisting for a tape I'd made in high school, along with a reminder to check out the Buzzfeed website). I had originally planned a much heavier essay last week about holding oneself accountable in relation to major lifestyle changes and making the appropriate … Continue reading Sides One and Two: Rob Sheffield’s Love Is A Mix Tape and Me
It’s not me, but it’s probably me: pop music and passive aggression
(here's an old picture of me holding my favorite record, which I think is like, ~really fitting~ to this post.) In a now heavily-gif'ed interview, Dave Grohl described the early impression of the internet as being reminiscent of a bathroom wall, where everyone would write their best explicit material, usually directed toward a specific someone. … Continue reading It’s not me, but it’s probably me: pop music and passive aggression
a long december (or whatever it is, I hate the counting crows)
(art by Jessi B. I miss her!) We're ten days into the new year, and I already can't believe how much new year related space in occupied in my brain. I'm not sure what it is, but I'm feeling lighter; the amount of relief I'm sure we all have for 2017 to be over, … Continue reading a long december (or whatever it is, I hate the counting crows)
Spotify Knows Me Better Than I Know Myself (my favorites of 2016, 101-90.)
It's no secret that I'm a huge Spotify user. Every year, I look forward to its end-of-the-year recaps because Spotify has a way of recapping my year for me better than I'm actually able to do. In recent years I've stopped writing as often as I used to, (I KNOW.) and the yearly retrospectives have … Continue reading Spotify Knows Me Better Than I Know Myself (my favorites of 2016, 101-90.)
(Me on a 5th grade field trip to the zoo. It was incredibly hot, and we were taken to a cemetery on the zoo property. Hopefully that explains my look of optimism and wonder.) As with every post it seems, I'm going to begin this one with "I should've written this earlier." I've been home … Continue reading what’s new?
i went to the mall today.
(Picture credit goes to Tumblr.) Tonight I've been sitting around and living in my personal corner of nostalgia. It's sounding really ridiculous for me after writing that sentence, but I'm really feeling the warmth of the neon lights and weirdly distance smell of popcorn and hairspray which derives from my definition of nostalgia. I went … Continue reading i went to the mall today.
last day in bowling green
i visited a log cabin when the weather was hot my black t-shirt clung to my body like a badge of honor and a man looked at me that's all i ever wanted i skated under a street light with a boy i'd never met he stuck his tounge down my throat and put … Continue reading last day in bowling green
i'd leave the bags of clothing on the floor every shirt stuffed and rolled if that meant you were going to unpack them. you told me i have a "heart of a doctor." you tell me how i heal, and drop everything to make sure everyone knows how to discard fears and eliminate that … Continue reading untitled
