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”
Hello my readers, here is a poem I wrote for one of my poetry classes. It was recently workshopped but I thought I should share it in it’s original form, once edited and played around with I might post a new version. This is welcome to multiple interpretations which is something I discovered during the workshop. The title of the poem is inspired by MBV’s song “Blown a Wish”.
This poem is dedicated to many, to all, and to one.

Updates, inspirations, and what the heck is going on
Nothing about advice, It has been a while since I’ve talked about making songs. Sorry to let any of ya’ll down but nothing is finished yet. I know! It’s been almost a year since I released a full song (which I should record again) and I know some of you that follow me want another song. Don’t worry though, there are about two or three songs that are in the process of being made. Now that I’m back in Austin, I’ll have more time and concentration for those songs.
I know that my music isn’t the best quality, but I enjoy making it. I am still self conscious about my voice, and I know that I shouldn’t care about what other people think, but I care about what I think. If I know I could do better I want that to be on the recording, not something I just slapped together. Although, slapping something together is the funnest of songwriting. I realized that I really enjoy making something together with someone else. When I was visiting my family, my brother and I were messing around with some chords I played with him beat boxing along with it. It was really fun and I wish I could make music with him because we think alike and bond together when it comes to music. Its great to have another person there to help with creative blocks and give you new perspectives on things.
Maybe by the end of this break I’ll release one of the songs but we’ll see! Lately I’ve been listening to a lot of music and I made a playlist of songs that inspire me to make that music. I’ve been vibing to HOMESHAKE, Jack Stauber, World Brain, Morrissey, and My Bloody Valentine and a few Soundcloud artists. Taking time on making this music really matters to me, I feel that creating something is very therapeutic and meaningful.
This poem is in a working progress. I wrote it for my Creative Writing Poetry class I’m taking this semester. Its’ been a while since Continue reading “The Banana Tree on Austin Blvd.”
