Sunshine

It always seems so much harder to get out of bed when it's completely dark, so it has been a welcome change to have the soft glow of the sun peeking inside in the mornings.

As much as I hate the way the sun blasts heat and light so early in July and August, I would still take that over the sun sleeping in as it does in the winter.





It's the last day of March. I'm in denial.

Know your onion


There's something so basic but wonderful about a little olive oil, some diced onions, and some minced garlic simmering in a skillet together. It's a reminder that sometimes the simple things are the best things in life.

Saturday ramblings

It's spring break! I slept til 11:30 today - I was quite impressed with myself.


This song has been in head quite a bit lately. It's so happy, you can't help but love it. Then I found out one of my friend's roommates was dating the drummer - say what?

Yesterday Jason picked me up from school. On the drive home, he told me he did some laundry, but that he ran out of quarters (we use the apartment laundry room). I get home and two loads of laundry are strung everywhere throughout our apartment, on every lamp, chair, table, and ledge available. What a silly boy he is.

Now... to clean my house. Midterms wrecked havoc on my apartment. And on top of that, I have to pack. But it's happy packing, because I get to see my family.

Lake Tahoe here we come!

Silence broken by your voice in the dark


I saw a crochet pillow yesterday so of course I had to go on etsy and look at crochet pillows. This one I found is lovely.

Of course I'm procrastinating this Saturday morning. I have two interviews this upcoming week for a potential internship.

This morning I was panicked before I even woke up. Seriously, I have worry dreams where basically all that happens are anxious thoughts roll around and around in my head... I wasn't in a deep sleep, so it's more of an in-between-sleeping-and-being-awake dream. The worst part is I can't even control it until I wake up more fully.

Don't get me wrong, I'm excited. Excited that I'm being considered. Excited that I'm one step closer to finding an internship. Excited to meet new creatives in the community.

But, every time I'm faced with something new like this, I get so fearful. I doubt myself. I doubt my abilities. I doubt that anyone could ever like me. Maybe I'm revealing too much, but I want to be honest on here. One of my resolutions this year was to stop living with so much fear. I have a feeling this will be my resolution for years to come.

This Mae captures my feelings so well right now. How I love the magic that music holds.

Mae - The Ocean

Am I alone in this?
Never a night where I can sleep myself 'til day.
We must try to figure it out, figure it out.
It won't be that easy.
We lost it somehow.

You come over unannounced.
Silence broken by your voice in the dark.
I need you here tonight,
Just like the ocean needs the waves.

Oh, the night becomes the space that's somewhere in between
What I feel and what I'm told.
Sitting on the shoreline trying to figure it out, figure it out.
To find out the meaning
And reach it somehow.

You come over unannounced.
Silence broken by your voice in the dark.
I need you here tonight,
Just like the ocean needs the waves.

Fall around me now,
Like, stars that shine and brighten the way.
I need you here tonight,
Just like this night it needs the rain.

The season has changed.
The wind, it blows colder now.
The clouds are raised,
The rain it falls harder now, all around.

You come over unannounced.
Silence broken by your voice in the dark.
I need you here tonight,
Just like the ocean needs the waves.
Fall around me now.
Like stars that shine and brighten the way.
I need you here tonight,
Just like this night it needs the rain.

(You come)Over unannounced,(Will you come over)
Silence broken by your voice in the dark.
I need you here tonight,
Just like the ocean needs the waves.
Just like the stars that fall around me now.

Obsessed. He's 11.
