(photo credit: richkidsunite, via Flickr) I have long accepted I need to write about happenings in my life in order to make sense of them. The unfortunate aspect about this understanding is that I write about it, and consider the job to be finished; even when I know something is good for me, I write about … Continue reading “So, uh… Whiskeytown is your favorite band?”: Dating and Popular Culture
(If you haven't heard about or checked out the new album generator for the new 30 Seconds To Mars record, check it out) I haven't done one of these posts in ages, it seems-- that's a huge drag because this is one of my favorite sections of the blog! March was a quick month where I … Continue reading trash by taylor: march favorites
(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
(I took this picture circa 2010 at an antique store with my first cell phone camera.) Hi! I just ate macaroni and cheese with a brownie for lunch and I feel bad about it but the brownie was ace, so who cares? That is, what I've always been taught to be called a "short … Continue reading life update
(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)
(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
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)?
(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.
(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
(The "Chicken, Set, Go" biscuit from Holler & Dash) I had never been to Holler & Dash or had heard of a "biscuit only" restaurant until recently, and I'm really sold on the concept after my first visit! I went to Holler & Dash with my best friend for the first stop of my Birthday … Continue reading Holler & Dash- Nashville, TN
