7 Albums That Make Me Feel Human

20 September, 2018

Surprise! Music makes people feel lots of things! Music helps and calms and excites and inspires! I love it a lot! The more I think about it, the better I feel! Music reminds me that I'm alive, it makes me feel like nothing else.

As of September 2018, these are my favorite albums- not just bits and pieces of random artists who have 3 good songs. Every single song on these albums are an 11 out of 10, which is why this isn't just another playlist. The reason these records remind me that it's good to be alive is because they all have a wide variety of songs, from slow and dismal to upbeat and hopeful. They cover every different aspect of life and I keep coming back to them.

Being Pretty Does Not Equal Being Small (a poem)

14 September, 2018

I could never convince you                                 you can’t remember
that you've always                                              a life before me,
been enough.                                                     with skies that turned purple
as if you were just a body,                                  but the wrong happiness,
not a soul,                                                           when there was hope in your eyes
gentle and tough.                                                and a light in your chest.

I Am Out With The Night

08 September, 2018

For the longest time I thought I was the most creative at night and for the most part that's still true. I came home after a long day and took out my laptop, opened every social media, all my favorite blogs, and I read. I read things that were hard to read and things that were unimportant. I wrote about every single aspect of my life.

What I wrote was just for me and I'm not sure why I did it. I think maybe I wrote to just prove to myself that I can, to vent and let go and relinquish and explain. Because I thought about things over and over and when I know I had written it down I knew I didn't need to hold on so tight anymore.
