trash by taylor: november favorites

(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

home is what you make of it, i guess

The holidays are weird. 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

a fancy poem about being left on “read.”

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.”

one year later

It's officially been one year (and a few days- Procrastination is my middle name!) since I started my blog. 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

october (the month where i discovered mushy peas. does anyone want to hook me up with some)?

October was a MONTH. Not just a month, but a MONTH! I normally do a "favorites" post at the end of the month, but I forgot last month and just really didn't feel like I had a lot of "favorites" in October. 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)?

i went to a salt cave and was not salty about it.

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.

it is not normal to cry into a sandwich about nuclear war: 2017 (so far) line-by-line.

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.

fall by numbers

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

Trash by Taylor: August favorites

(hey, hi, it's me. i know it's been a long time, but i've just been trying to live life, y'know?) August was a weird month. It was one of those months where you find yourself as a character in a coming-of-age film, but John Hughes didn't write your film, so there is a whole lot … Continue reading Trash by Taylor: August favorites
