September 20th, 2021

My words are lost in thoughts
I’m trying to decrypt
They’re jumbled up in code
And I can’t read this script
Twenty-four hours of nameless music
I’ve left it on repeat
To find the message underneath
Am I being indiscreet
The melody is made of letters
In a language I want to know
You can play to the beat of my heart
I’ll be a metronome
Though I am not a muse
I don’t smile like Lana Del Rey
But I can lose myself in the beat
At the moment you press play
I guess my words will never be configured
And maybe this is cliche
But I will listen to the lyrics
Of feelings that I can’t convey


2020 Concluded

Hello everyone! Can I just say – where did 2020 go? What a long short year! 

First off, I want to shoutout to my readers! I grew from 101 followers to 144 followers in the last year! A few more fun statistics include:

I know I’ve been MIA for a while, but I’ve had a busy/productive last year. I finished my Bachelor’s Degree, started a new job, and started my Master’s Degree. I also did a little bit of socially distant and safe traveling!

During this year, I was also able to recreate a few photos!

2004-2020

2009 – 2020 

I went to a zoo for the first time, and witnessed the most beautiful of birds!

Flamingos 
I learned how to be overly obnoxious while matching my mask:

Then I finished the year by accidentally dying my hair pink…

As usual, I think I had a productive year.

I also found some great music to accompany my year:



Shoutout to Chelsea Cutler for ranking as my Spotify top artist for the last three years!

“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.

5. Meet Virginia – Train

6. Wonderful – Everclear

7. With You – Jessica Simpson

8. All Angel No Wings – To Be Juliet’s Secret
