WHERE AM I?

I am currently in Okinawa, Japan!

It has been a few days since I have posted anything but in my defense it’s been a tiring trip going from Texas to Japan. So in reality I am a day ahead than those in certain part of the United States, usually my fellow Texans!

The plane ride wasn’t too bad, but I will say it was extremely tiring. Just thinking about it makes me feel tired. I watched a lot of movies and tv shows and I slept some of the way. One of the flights was 12 hours, from Dallas to Tokyo. Arriving in the Tokyo Air port was so nerve racking! I had no idea where to go or what to go. But I managed to make it through by following signs and people. I got my first stamp on my passport! So I hopped on to another flight to Okinawa which took about 2 hours and a half. I felt so weird and tired, especially because of the time change. Also, I was sweating so much from the humidity.

This was the TV that I had for myself. But plane ride was still really tiring. But at least I got threes meals! The bathroom was right behind me which I’m not sure if that was a good thing or not. People always got up to go to the restroom, but I never had to get in a line because of my quick access.

So far it has been completely surreal with that I am seeing and experiencing. Theres so much to see and so much to do. I can’t wait to explore more and more of this beautiful place. It has been one of my dreams to go to Japan, now I can cross it off my list. This trips makes me so excited to plan other trips in the future.

These are some pictures from my first full day

I hope everyone is having a great and safe summer! I will post more of my adventures and such! For more pictures go check out my Instagram with the same name as the site. Here is one last picture of me by the water at a place called American Village!

New Artist Inspiration 

Of course the way I spend my morning is watching the latest YouTube videos. I was watching a video about 20 minutes ago from youtuber lindseyrem and it was about her latest summer playlist. Already from the first artist she mentioned- Puzzle aka an extension of The Garden– I was interested in what else she would mention. The next artist was Temporex 


I’ve been looking for a new artist with this type of music. It’s calming,simple, and relaxing. One way I could describe this sound is that it’s rounder, polished in a way. I really enjoyed the song Nice Boys from the album We Care. There is no effort to listen to and it is nice for some background sound and moments of lounging around.


This is a pretty nice find, and I can’t wait to lay back, write, read, and listen to it all summer.

Give it a listen, give music a chance.

Having seen your face brought something than another

Over the time and over the days it never got old

Leading and lending the quiet and exchanges of you and me

Left and looked lovelier than life

I knew that meeting you was finding the clean air to breathe

Everything found a place in time

30 Days of Songs: Day #29

Day 29: A song you remember from your childhood

Hmm hmm hmm hmm. I really don’t know or remember songs from childhood. Music was just everywhere for me. There is not really one band or artist, or song that I could name. So here is a collection of old Hollie tunes. Some of these also count as my preteen years, as that was my childhood also.

I’ve been Tired by The Pixies, Of course the Pixies are always in my heart and childhood.

It’s Oh so Quiet by Björk, my Dad showed me this song when I was little and since then I have become a huge Björk fan.

Wuthering Heights by Kate Bush, I have no idea how I heard of Kate Bush, I think my Dad showed her to me but honestly it was a random find for me and I love her voice no matter what people think.

 

How Soon is Now? by The Smiths, Of course 😉

Sunday Bloody Sunday by U2

Music of my childhood reminds me a lot about car rides and music blasting in the speakers. I pretty thankful for my parents for giving me the gift of such great music. Most of these songs are older than me and aren’t even in my own time era, but I love them.

Give it a listen, give music a chance.

30 Days of Songs: Day #24

Day 24: A song by a band you wish were still together

Varsity by Smith Westerns

This is a good old favorite band. Such an amazing song to  listen to. It reminds me of first love and summer. This is a beautiful song and the lyrics are so sweet. I know that one of the brothers, Cullen, went on a solo project and band. So at least he’s still singing and making music. Good Listen.

Day 21: A song you like with a person’s name in the title

Gabby by The Internet

I just heard of them about a year ago and thats when I started to really like music like this. The us of their bass and drums is just so sexy, and so is Syd’s voice. I really love the way this songs shifts in the middle into a whole other song.

And Also

Julia by The Beatles

(I couldn’t find a studio version of the video online)

Day 19: A song that makes you think about life

This is difficult. All music makes me think about life and love. And the song changes by the way I think and what is happening in my life.

In the Aeroplane Over the Sea by Neutral Milk Hotel

This song actually makes me think about my Dad a lot, and how he introduced me to a lot of music in my life.

And this one is a classic for me, an old favorite in my book.

Caring is Creepy by The Shins

This whole album makes me think about life. Such a great band and album. Their new one is pretty good too.

Everything is in the Right Place by Radiohead

Give it a listen, give music a chance.

30 Days of Song: Day #17

Day 17: A song that you would sing as a duet with someone?

This would have to go to a lovely song from the film LA LA LAND.

A Lovely Night sung by Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone

And also their other Duet which melts my heart.

City of Stars

These songs are so amazing, the soundtrack is amazing. I really recommend those who hate and love musicals, because this movie is just perfect that no one can really hate it.

Give it a listen, give music a chance.
