I am thinking of starting a new challenge this upcoming month. However, it won’t be a daily song challenge, but a POETRY challenge. I wanted to start this so I can practice writing every day. I technically write every day in my English classes, but I feel that it doesn’t fulfill my creative outlet. I saw this specific challenge on this blog. It wasn’t in a text form so I went through the days and wrote down the challenge and created this picture 🙂
I am not sure if I want to start it during the last week of October or in the beginning of November (probably November). But you’ll know once I start posting from the first day. I will try my best to keep consistency! My passion is to write which is one of the reasons why I started this blog to post about my life, my poetry, and about music. I feel this project will help maintain creative flow. We all feel tired and stressed and sometimes we forget to do something for ourselves.

I have been thinking about setting a monthly update of where I am at the moment. So here is a new catch up with me.
Honestly, this month has been a downer, not just to me but for people around me. Some of my roommates and friends. Everyone has been facing a hard time and I think it just has to do with the month. Midterms are here and there deadlines for things. There are festivals and concerts happening which I had my share in. There’s stress, there’s homework, sometimes procrastinating and just enough time in a day.
It is everywhere. And sickness too.

ON OCTOBER 1 I attended a concert for one of my most favorite artists ever
What I forgot was that The Garden is touring with Mac Demarco’s group. I bought these tickets to ACL Live about maybe six months ago and what I only new what that The Flamming Lips was performing with a opening performance of Mac Demarco (which is who I really wanted to see, but I do like The Flamming Lips). Anyway, I had no idea that The Garden was going to perform. The week before the concert I kept getting emails reminding me to print my tickets before the concert. At the end of the email it had the line up which was:
The Garden 8:00
Mac Demarco 8:50
Flamming Lips 10:40
And I completely flipped out. My boyfriend told me not to get my hopes up. But why would they even put that in the email? Was my ticket finally fully worth what I was paying for. And what do you know…….The Garden came out and did an amazing set. Nothing could describe how happy I was to see them. Me and RJ where up in the balcony assigned seating in the first row so the view was perfect. The only problem was that no one in the balcony wanted to stand and jam out. Technically the population of the crowd was 80% in their forties with no idea who Mac Demarco or The Garden was. Me and RJ were itching so bad to stand up but we didn’t because we would block people behind us. Next time though, we will see Mac in the pit. Damn, I can’t even describe the feeling when I saw him, it was so surreal.

Hello, I know it is past mid week but here is some new songs I heard while watching a YouTube video. I would have put something that I’ve been listening to over and over, but I already mentioned those before. Who wants redundancy.
So far I’ve been listening to
Keep Kool by Winona Forever
Surfin’ with U by Selmer
While I was listening to this song it led to a whole station with songs similar to this type of music and I started liking every song that played. I’ll mention them in another post. I hope everyone has a great day! Enjoy
Give it a listen, give music a chance.
But the next day comes
And I find it better with people
If me -myself- and I
were to keep holding the boulder
It doesn’t matter and distracts,
when a few words from you, him, and her
make me work harder
But the day passes by
and I find I am still tacked
rather than filled and webbed with the
I can’t remember once I talk about it twice
What it was that made me sigh
And I realized that my mind
I strive and strive
And after I fake my way
there is still a crack and shapes my mould.
I can only perceive the heat that burns
and ice never seems to clam me down
maybe lavender might do the trick.
And lather it over the bathe
but still the skin cracks
and fills in
Must be from the tears and continued

Give it a listen, give music a chance.
So I am officially moved in to my apartment with six other people. It really isn’t that all bad. I like everyone and so far things have been good. I am really nervous and excited about school. Im going to be so busy this semester and incredible independent. I feel that this year there is more academic work for me, honestly it is. More reading and writing, which is a good thing. This is a test for my ability and skills and how I will work it all out by myself. But hey, I’ve done it once I can do it again.
I will say…the best thing about this semester is the fact that I have an apartment. It is so much better than living in the dorm. I just got so sick of always being on the campus at all times. I may be only a street away from the campus but it does make a difference.
I have 17 hours of classes, its going to be fukin crazy
But hey, I’m in Austin, one of the best cities. I should have the time for myself. The only thing that I get tired of is walking everywhere and how far it is. But hey, good exercise is a good health mind. Don’t forget that! I am not even sure why I was writing this in the first place. I guess it is just an update of what this week has to offer. My weeks and months are going to consist
Who ever you are, what ever you are doing- I hope that you have great rest of the year. Be it college, work, highschool, home life- whatever applies to you.
I have been circling a question through my head. It is the one question that we all face in our coming adult years. What do you want to do?
That question can apply to a lot of meanings. What do you want to do right now? What do you want to do in four years? What do you want to do with yourself?
What do you want to BE?
I do and do not have an answer to that question. All that I know is that I want to be doing something what is from my decision. I want to be able to give myself my own options and I am thinking through a college perspective. I want an apartment, I want to have money or some sort of income, I want an internship, and I want a career that I picked. And so far I am currently working on those things.
The reason why I am writing about this now is because today I got an email from professor I won’t no loner have since I changed my major. So I had to explain to them that I was not going to do their class again for this fall. I also had a talk to my boyfriend about what he wants to do after the four years. Whether or not to do another career choice added on to what he already wants to do.
And that made me think.
What do I want to do when I get to that point of my life?
Right now I changed to be only a English Major. I also added a teaching certificate for the future. But now that I think about it I don’t want to get that certificate and be done with my career. I want to WRITE. I love to write so much and I want to write books. I just don’t know what or where to start. I love poetry but I also want to practice my prose. Not only do I want to be a creative writer but I also want to be a versatile one, where I can write articles and express opinions and issues and reviews. I want to be the best I can be at writing. It is my own way of express and enjoyment of who I am as a person, what my voice is trying to say.
I do and I don’t know what is going to happen.
But I do know that what I’m doing now I want to work hard at it.
What do you think? Where do you think you are in your life? Do you know what you want to do?
Much Love and Support
Newest song of the week comes from a soundtrack of a movie called Inherent Vice directed by Paul Thomas Anderson. I may have talked about this before, and I seen this movie a while ago but the song never fails.
Amethyst by Johnny Green Wood
From the moment I heard this song I fell in love with it, it really is something beautiful.
Give it a listen, give music a chance.
so it has been about two weeks since I have posted anything and it’s because I been caught up with enjoying the last few days in Japan to arriving back home in the states. Lately I am tired and scrambling about moving back to Austin and other paper documents that I don’t feel like thinking about. The only thing that anyone wants to do is just lay down all day.
I am definitely lacking good sleep. Where I am no one ever really lets me sleep well. It is also hot in my room and the light from the window is too strong. I will say that I did get to stay in bed till 2:30 with the exception of people calling me to ask if I was okay because of how late I slept. I just want to freaking sleep with no bother for once. Literally I am laying down “wishing” I could fall asleep.
But I want to get back at consistency. I am pretty drained and where I am right now I lack inspiration and motivation. Even my happiness goes down because of the negative energy in my house. I do have a lot in my mind but what better way to get through it than to write about it for express it in poetry and music.
But hey on a good note…there is internet and cable in this house! After 6-7 years of not having any connection to the cable-interent world, I finally have access.
I only have a week left in my hometown till I move into my new apartment!
So enjoy it while it lasts.
Hey Everyone! SOO Tyler the Creator just released a new album this month. This is literally the only thing I have been listening too! I also got interested in other songs of his from his past albums. I am serious, this albums makes me feel things. Like my heart is crying from how beautiful music is, in general. And I feel that Tyler has brought something into this world that I needed to hear and need to have. I’m even inspired to write more poetry with how I feel about these songs of Flower Boy.
These are the songs that have broken my repeat button
See You Again by Tyler The Creator
Another song that I love although it is sad is:
IFHY from the album WOLF
I have found a new artist that I love, and I think I will love fro a long time. Im excited to actually memorize lyrics to rap because these lyrics speak to me and my loner emotions. Let me know what songs are in your mind! Share this if you like these songs, if not then tell me a song I should listen to!
Give it a listen, give music a chance
