like the dentist.

hey, kids.
when i turn twenty one, y'all owe me some dd'ing.
just sayin'.


just hand me down

there's nothing quite like having a good conversation with a familiar friend while listening to familiar music on a familiar road.

life is changing quickly, and it's good to hang on to some things, at least for a little while.


up late many nights in a row; thankfully many of those nights i was up with people, at parties, talking and laughing and analyzing and reading and being.

i have been more alive on this break than i have been for a while.

i am in my twenties and i am finally figuring shit out.

big post later this week, although i am enjoying spending so much time away from the internet.


first world problems

i always feel just twenty pounds away from beautiful.

(everyone tries to find someone to blame for these sorts of feelings,
but i know that, in the end, it always comes back around to me.)



so generally, i complain in this blog about my lack of writing. however, looking over this past semester, i've written a lot of songs. at least ten. and that's pretty good, considering what a wash the summer was as far as writing goes.

i've written a song suite that i'm proud of. there's a video on youtube. here is a link if you'd like to watch it. the mixing is poor and i did the recording between midnight and three in the morning, but otherwise i think it's pretty alright. the photographs were taken by my friend satpreet. you can find links to her stuff in the video description; she's magnificently talented.

i also wrote the sexiest/coolest song i've ever written this semester. it's this shuffle-y minor thing in three with an electric guitar and organ and stuff. i dunno. kind of out of character in comparison to the pale-blue piano/vocal mainstays. this is a bit darker, a bit richer. i don't have a link at the moment, as it ought to be mixed properly, but i'm not opposed to sharing with those who inquire.

so i'm growing as a musician. i need a band. i need to get my shit together in that arena. but it feels good to realize that i've been writing. and a lot, at that.

in other news, home for the holidays.
but that's for a personal post; that's for another day.
(i have lots of days, now, in which to write about whatever i choose)


the last leaf

i never intended for this to become a blog for my music, but i feel like sharing this track for some reason. i just wrote it, recorded it quickly and inefficiently, and have been posting it on the internet. it's something different than i normally do, and i feel like it might signal a change for me and my writing. who knows. i've been writing more lately. it's good. it feels good.


song here.
