Hey everyone! I’ve been going back to the archives and listening to some new stuff. I went back to my roots and listened to some old bands I loved when I was a kid, and still do to this day. So please enjoy these picks and share!
I want to take a look back and remind myself that there are some good things, the best things, and favorite things in my life. I thought of this when I was going for a walk today around my campus and it reminded me of some beautiful things hidden. I’ve realized that I really like hidden corners haha. But, I felt like I should share some things that I appreciate.
Another assignment for the books…
THEY TELL ME NICE THINGS
There’s a club if you’d like
To jump off
I throw my head off
And I think
they like me
Inside there was the
Smile of tobacco
And a boy
But really, he’s just a boy with fingers
And a girl
Crying in my glass
Still tastes pretty
I pulled off my lips
And I found myself attractive
And the tobacco was still
Smiling in the corner
And I danced around jokes
My friends walked through
Puddles of fire
While I dig up some lode
Resigning my eardrums for the night
And we breezed
And told me nice things
(title inspired by the Kate Bush song)
For the second time I asked
why the clouds were late
I grew rosemary on my
temples and collected
tines in the morning
wax of secrets and diaries of
the second time, a second time
the world was made with
paper and construction blue
I love it when
my stomach jokes
and when my elbow drove me to the lake
with a door, and I
remembered the last time my liver was
handed, crowned with
jewels and baskets of
oranges, the ones picked
last night rolled back twice
on some moss’s jealousy
I wonder why
Why the second time
the clouds didn’t call today
Here is my lame attempt of making a mood/inspiration board, I mean who really makes them anyway right? Am I running out of ideas? No i’m not :). Anyway I just thought it would be fun to do this.
Well this is what goes on in my head for most of the time and it’s not even all of it. 🙂
Hi everyone, I’ve collected some poems but I strayed away from posting them. The class I’m taking has forced me ( in a good way) to write poems/lines/phrases again. I’m happy that I’m writing again, and I’ve noticed that my word choices and the poems themselves have changed. I’ll try to post the ones I do for class, but here is one that I wrote outside of it. I might use this is workshop, but I don’t know. I try not to devalue my poetry and I treat it as separate from myself. I hope you enjoy this short one.
I wrote this a few days ago, I’m already on my second day of classes 🙂
So the summer is coming to an end. I start classes this Wednesday and I feel weird about it. I feel almost indifferent. Not that I hate it, I just feel like it’s something I have to do, like breathing or making sure to eat. Continue reading “happiness is a- an update”
A new playlist for the end of the summer…
Hey everyone, the summer is coming to a close so it’s time to transition to the fall season! Here are some songs I’ve been listening to for the last part of the summer. The title was inspired by a quote from the movie “The Crow”- some songs in here are from Continue reading “-it cant rain all the time- a playlist”
Hair- The Body’s Landscape
While I was going through instagram an ad for a shaving company popped up on my feed. It was very different than any other shaving ad I’ve seen. First of all, the women in the ad had hair on their body. Continue reading “P1: Lengths To Body Love”
HAHAH don’t know what I was going for here but here is a new song for ya’ll to listen to! Now on Soundcloud and soon Bandcamp!
I was really inspired by a Beach House song… Continue reading “SOON OR L8TER – a new song”
Mental Health, Physical Health, Creative Projects, and Getting Back
It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these. I think the last one I did was around February. Now that it’s summer I can finally tell you a few things to come. I know I haven’t been posting lately and I think the last post I did was about two weeks ago, so it’s been a while! I’m sorry about that, things got really busy on the last few weeks of school and it seemed like I had no time for any personal projects or ideas I had. Plus, work takes up some of my free time so I had no motivation to set aside blog time. I feel like it’s been a month since I’ve done anything on here, but that should change soon! I’ve been going through a lot of things and I will be honest and say Continue reading “i only said – an update”
“This night has opened my eyes…”
Hi, it’s been about a month? Maybe? And this “night” is not any particular night, its a lyric from a song that describes a lot of the first month and few weeks of the new year, and I thought I could reflect a little bit on it. Not in specifics but you know what I mean! Continue reading “New Harmony – An Update”
Let’s do two birds with one stone!
“I am grateful for today, my Birthday!”
I just want to keep this post nice and short. I know this might be a little late but I wanted to make this post.
Although my birthday was filled with school and exams – it was also filled with people that I love and that care about me.
Don’t even waste your time feeling down or stressing about something in the past or to come. The future is ahead and there are moments to be enjoyed. 💖
I had such a great and beautiful 21st Birthday!
I love everyone and I hope you all have a wonderful night!
“I am so grateful for music”
Today, music has been the best stress reliever. I am so nervous and stressed for an exam I have, a morning class at 8, finishing a book, typing up questions, just all my classes. I am so tired and all I want to do is actually relax on my birthday. It makes me kind of sad because I would think that my 21st would be exciting on the day of. But I can’t always get what I want. Anyway, the weekend will be great!
Today consisted of me sitting at my desk going through power points and singing along to my self-made playlists I have on Spotify. It was sort of fun…blasting my vocals along to the speaker of my laptop. Singing some classics and being reminded of artists I liked really lifted my spirits for today. I miss music all the time. It’s such a great friend.
Tomorrow is going to be fine! I have nothing to worry about. Life is not setting me up for failure!
^did that sound sarcastic? I didn’t mean to lmao.
Another form of creativity I love is journaling. I don’t do it every day but I try to stay consistent every month. I decided I could give Continue reading “What’s In My Journal? – pt. one”
I decided to challenge myself 30 days of Gratitude…
November is the month of Gratitude and many other holidays and events that are important in my life. I decided that I should probably start something new and fresh for the blog that is also good for my self-worth and growth. I’ve been feeling down a lot and filled with anxiety. I believe this stems from the overload of stress from college and reading and constant assignments left to right. I need to step back and reevaluate myself. I don’t like this stress, I want it to go away. I thought that by starting up a daily gratitude post for the month of November would be a great way to start. I have never done this before but I have kept a gratitude journal once, I never finished it.
November was the first day of Gratitude but I was not able to write things down. So for today, you get two doses of gratitude!
Gratitude November 1st:
“I am grateful for my boyfriend”
November 1st is his birthday! Happy Birthday!
He is one of my best friends and one of few people who really know me. He cares for me and makes me laugh. He reminds me to Continue reading “National Gratitude Month”

Some Favorites, New Projects, the end of the semester, whats going on…
I am writing this on the last of April. I planned to do this sooner, but it did not work out! Anyway, hello to the new Month of May. What we got coming up is my brothers birthday, mother’s day, dead week (for some), and the summer! For me this last week will be filled with exams and a quiz, but not to worry, the good thing is that I will get it done!
I can’t believe how fast and jam-packed this month has been. So many concerts, new projects, assignments, and events. I’m not even sure where to start!
