Waving Through A Window.

You know what? The song “Waving Through A Window” is SO good. Ben Platt sings it in my new musical obsession, Dear Evan Hansen. The song “You Will Be Found” from that show hit me right in a soft spot the first time I heard it. I think a good thing about these two songs…

Bus Ride Thoughts.

I’ve been writing for over a year and a half now. How crazy is that? It seems like just yesterday I was thinking about starting my blog and here it is with over 20 followers. I love blogging because it makes me feel like I can reach people when they are most comfortable. People read…

One Country Song At A Time

One country song at a time. I remember. I was driving my car. The sun was picking through the clouds, like it couldn’t decide if it wanted to come out or not. That’s how I felt. I was doing better. I was only crying every now and then at this point. But I still felt…

Cheers To Living, Not Just Being Alive.

I was looking at the stars the other night as I got out of my car. Man, they were pretty. I opened my car, and the cold air immediately hit my face. I could feel my cheeks turn pink. I was mesmerized by how bright the stars were. It was like they were shining down…

A Very Merry Christmas.

Disclaimer: This may be the deepest blog post I have written so far. Today, I finally did a thing. I cleaned out a lot of stuff from my years growing up in my hometown. I have been putting off doing so for awhile because I knew it would make me a little emotional and up…

Closing 2016

It’s been one hell of a year. I feel like I am not the only person who can say this. For some, it has been one of the greatest years of their life. Maybe they received a job promotion, got married, or had a baby. Maybe they have traveled or they have had something seemingly…

Should You Write an Autobiography If You Aren’t Famous?

I mean, would anyone read it? Picture this: you’re walking through a bookstore, maybe alone, maybe with your friend, or maybe on a date. You’re looking at one of the bookcases at the front of the store, the one that usually holds new releases. On that bookcase, you see one of the books has cover…

Here’s How It Feels.

Here’s how it feels. Like an ocean in the middle of a hurricane. Like a tree during a tornado. Life chaos. Here’s how it feels. Like a small child missing their mother. Like a dog who has lost it’s owner. Like despair. Here’s how it feels. Like you’re in a storm that will never end….

It’s Okay Not To Be Okay.

Being a woman in 21st century America means I am very fortunate. I have a high school diploma, I am attending university, and I have many more opportunitiesĀ that women in other countries do not have. With that said, there are still problems that exist in my life, one of which is that I feel like…

Reflection.

Here I am at 19 years old, receiving a college education, and sometimes I still feel like I am failing at life. Here I am at 19 years old watching friends of mine struggle to stay above water when it comes to their responsibilities and personal lives. They too, sometimes feel like they are failing….

Bubble.

You can’t let yourself live inside a bubble, one that only allows you to get so close to things, but not fully embrace them. It’s simple. Maybe we only get one life, maybe we have eternal life, or maybe we live more than one life. Regardless, you only have today. So, with the day you…
