(credits to somewhere on Tumblr.) I saw High Fidelity for the first time in high school after countless people recommended it to me. Almost all of them would tell me John Cusack's character, Rob Gordon, reminded them of me. If you have seen the film, it's probably no surprise why I would struggle with this comparison, but … Continue reading 2017 in three minutes or less: my year according to Spotify (100-90)
(my best friend's strict order to slow down on the mashed potatoes from Publix, during my post Thanksgiving feast. I DID NOT LISTEN) The root word in "November" is "No" and this word sums up how I have always felt about November. I'm sure I have been pretty vocal about my indifference (read: blind hatred) … Continue reading trash by taylor: november favorites

They are a time where a lot of us get reflective over ourselves and pay close attention to those things we wish we could change (I bet those of you who know me are like, Taylor, you're always reflective. I know, the holidays are my reflection period, with all of the … Continue reading home is what you make of it, i guess
I have nothing to say to you today and I act like this will be the last word as if you could fill it up with words and phrases because speaking to you feels like shouting into the void. each word reads like a promise or a declaration a promise so big because as humans … Continue reading a fancy poem about being left on “read.”

This picture was taken in the library of my college, exactly where I started my blog; I was supposed to be doing spanish homework I think. I had big dreams for my blog. I still do, … Continue reading one year later

It was sort of the beginning of the fall season and I have … Continue reading october (the month where i discovered mushy peas. does anyone want to hook me up with some)?
My 2017 can be defined by a few very specific factors: graduating from college, Ryan Adams' discography, anxiety over politics and the safety of the free world, and my introduction to the serenity brought on through salt lamps. Some time in the summer, my grandmother started raving endlessly about how she had heard about the … Continue reading i went to a salt cave and was not salty about it.
I am currently reading Theft By Finding by David Sedaris and have been incredibly inspired by his ability to keep a journal for a quarter century. I don't know if I will ever write for this long, but I'm excited by the prospect. 2017 has been a year for me-- I decided to document some bullets of my … Continue reading it is not normal to cry into a sandwich about nuclear war: 2017 (so far) line-by-line.
(here's a sample of my growing pile of books on my bedroom floor. is this art?) When I wake up every morning, my glance almost always goes to the pile of books on the floor of my room or next to me on my nightstand. I've got them divided into piles of "read" and "not … Continue reading books, etc.
spotify:user:227erflpbxb3ard7tkt5yhe6i:playlist:28bDGD4HHowqpyrZRnYQbT I've got an extremely complicated relationship with Fall. I can remember feeling unhappy in the third grade for the first time during the season because my mom made me go to church choir against my will, but that is definitely another story for another time. this playlist contains music dating back to my … Continue reading fall by numbers
