The First Week of College

The first week of college is a whirlwind of events. Move-in, Welcome Week, First Day of Classes. My whole life changed drastically in just seven days. I went from living and seeing my parents and little brother every day to not knowing for sure when I would see them again. I don't even talk to … Continue reading The First Week of College

College: Why I’m Not Ready 

Maybe some of you have the same feelings/fears? This post actually doesn't even begin to cover all the layers of fears I have about this.  College is just on the horizon... I can almost taste the freedom, the accountability I will have all to myself, and I'm completely freaking out about it. The most time I've ever … Continue reading College: Why I’m Not Ready 

There’s No Stopping the Future 

I'm going to be living in downtown Phoenix 47 days from now.  I'm going to be permanently living away from my parents and stepping into life as an adult.  If that's not an absolutely terrifying thought, I don't know what is.  I can't believe I've gotten this far in my life. I know this is … Continue reading There’s No Stopping the Future 

Matt And Kim – 2015 Tour

Check out my future roommate’s new blog about one of the 10 million concerts she’s gone to. ☺️ It’s pretty awesome.

Last night I had the pleasure of seeing Matt and Kim perform at The Marquee in Tempe, Arizona. The first time I saw them was way back in 2011 when they shared the stage with My Chemical Romance and blink-182 for the Honda Civic Tour. Four years later and they haven’t lost any of their touch. I thought I was just going to stand more near the back of the venue to enjoy the show, but, just like everyone else, I was drawn to the center of the crowd. It might actually be impossible to not want to jump around and dance at one of their shows. Every single song is filled with more energy than you would think drums and a keyboard are capable of.

The night began with a 40 minute set from a band called Waters. Originating from Norway, Waters was formed by Van Pierszalowski (vocals, guitar). The…

Over Excited Young Adults 

As a young person, this is going to sound very snobbish, but I couldn't possibly care less.This post is also going to be very very short. One sentence in fact, following this one. I don't care if you're 18 or 80; use a dictionary when you decide to use a "big" word.Ok. I can't sum up … Continue reading Over Excited Young Adults 

Friends, Tissues, and Good Music

So, as I said in my last little blurb, I've been working a whole bunch at this community college bookstore and it's been pretty awesome because I'm making money doing something fairly simple, and something that I actually enjoy, unlike my short stint at McDonald's. Anyway, I've been watching copious amounts of Friends, and I'm … Continue reading Friends, Tissues, and Good Music

Distant

Sorry I haven't blogged in over a month, but I've been a little busy. I have a kind of sort of job that takes up a lot of my time, and I haven't mentioned that F.R.I.E.N.D.S. is on Netflix now so any free time I have, I spend watching my favorite six friends sitting around … Continue reading Distant

The Sheer Mass of Music

It astounds me how many different platforms music is produced on. So far, my blog has focused on alternative or indie songs/bands/performers. I think I'm going to keep it that way for as long as I keep contributing to this blog, and hopefully that's a really long time because I love it so much. I've … Continue reading The Sheer Mass of Music
