“19 of My All Time Favorite Songs”

Hello there!

While experiencing writer’s block, I like to post some updates about me and my life. Today I wanted to bring back a Facebook challenge from 2010 when people were asked to post their top nineteen favorite songs. I stumbled across my original post which I must have rushed because I forgot so many favorites! Music is one of my greatest influences, so I wanted to use this as a chance to update my list.



1. I Don’t Know – Joanne Accom

2. The Busby (Do You Think About Me?) – The Broken Hearts Academy

3. The Way We Used To – A Cutthroat Kiss

4. What You See (Is What You Get) – Britney Spears

5. Meet Virginia – Train

6. Wonderful – Everclear

7. With You – Jessica Simpson

2019 Concluded

Hello everyone, I just wanted to say that I can’t believe last year has ended already! I just began this blog in 2018, and suddenly it’s 2020! This month I reached 100 followers, and to celebrate, I acquired this new domain! I also launched an Instagram account if you wanted to follow my posts: @dollurban_


Last year I posted a recap mid-year because I was experiencing writer’s block. It encouraged me to see that people were still reading my blog after two months of me not posting, and I wanted to let all my followers know that I would be posting soon. So when I wasn’t in class, at work, or writing, I was busy making memories!

2009 – 2019

2005 – 2019

My husband and I purchased a new house and car!

I then redid both of our bathrooms by myself.

Overall, I would say I had a productive year!

If anyone is curious about what music inspired me last year, you can find my top 100 songs of 2019 below:


Writer’s Block

No, unfortunately, this is not a new poem. I have been struggling with writer’s block most of this year, but I haven’t given up on my passion! I once took a few years off from regularly writing, and I don’t intend to do that again. The year is passing so quickly, so I thought I would share an update with my now 64 followers! Thank you all, for all of your support! In the meantime, I have been trying to focus on new experiences and other passions to inspire myself.

First, I started the year with the decision to donate my hair!


I got to see my most listened to artist of 2018 in concert, Chelsea Cutler. I also saw myself in her Snapchat story afterward (points to you if you find me)!


After obsessing over the soundtrack, specifically, Burn, I saw Hamilton!


I did some volunteer work, and helped install a bench at a new park!


Lastly, I got to meet up with some friends from out of town for my birthday!


As I’ve previously mentioned, I also turn to music for inspiration. These have been my top favorite songs of this year:

Lui Peng – Just Go

Flume – Friends

Terror Jr – Terrified 

Cole Messey – Not Over

Overall, my year has been going well! I hope to start producing some new content – so I don’t overwhelm you all with my old poetry drenched in teen angst! Stay tuned!
