A Spring Melody

I never thought that I would put this sort of thing on my blog, but as I sit and create a new playlist, I thought I would share some songs through this platform that invoke different emotions or serve a different purpose for me. I love music and strongly believe that it can not only…

Stuck in a Rut

As is normal in all of humanity, I am stuck inside of a very deep rut. I’ve fallen down a path of never-ending perfectionism and that has taken quite a toll on my life. Writing this blog was something that made me feel entirely whole. More belonging to myself than anything, I suppose. It was…

Music

Warning: I wrote this while extremely tired and somewhat emotional. It is a lot of thoughts that, honest to goodness, don’t make sense. But I liked it.  I am no stranger to music. In every aspect of my life, music has been there. Even as a child, I have vivid memories of listening to my…

Oops.

Oh hello, old friend. It has been quite awhile, hasn’t it? If I’m being honest, I guess I don’t really have an excuse for it. I’ve been busy and really ill, but that shouldn’t have stopped me from writing. What got in the way, simply, was my lazy patterns. That being said, here I am!…

2017

(This blog post, admittedly, is more for me than for the people reading this. That’s not to say that I don’t think whoever reads this can’t take something away from me, but I’m hoping on January 1st, 2018, I can read this post back and smile.)  New Year’s Resolutions are something that I never really believed…

Loveland, Ohio

When my dad told my family that we were moving to Ohio, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a face as shocked as my mom’s. In truth, I didn’t know anything about Ohio (other than we drove through it once… and it had a lot of cornfields). To be quite frank, I wasn’t thrilled either….

Ho, Ho, Chlo.

I’ve always been an avid fan of Christmas. It’s something my parents noticed in me from a very young age. Something about the holiday struck me, and ever since, I’ve been an overly obnoxious fan of both Christmas and the season that surrounds it. It’s hard to put into words exactly what it is that…

Hiatus… Pt. II

Oh boy, I’ve done it again. I haven’t been on my blog in quite awhile. I’m not naïve enough to think that people have missed these posts to an extreme measure, but in all honestly, I have missed these posts. I’ve been so busy, caught up in my thoughts, and stressed out (as college finals…

Lies to Myself

it is often and many times that i trick myself into believing the worst for example one of the worst lies i’ve ever told myself is “you’ll finish it all alone.” what deceit trickery mockery a complete fool of myself i’ve made; to believe that, by my own choice, i could finish this all alone…

A Quick Haiku

should i be breathing what autumn provides for me? or should i leave it?

Inspiration

Does the moon ever stop being inspired? When all it looks out at every night is the stars, the planets surrounding it, the life on earth it sees Does it stare down and sometimes think, “I have grown tired of this, where is the new? What do I write for? What is there I have…

Re-Connecting

I didn’t intend for this to be a life update, but it might turn into just that. If you’re ready for a bit of a weird, emotional and explanatory roller coaster, you’ve come to the right post. It’s no lie that when you move from high school to a collegiate level, there’s quite a bit…
