I’ve decided to do the rest of my homework in the morning (way to be a failure, Adrienne). I could stay up till 1 am to finish, but why waste all that time on homework when I could be sleeping? (way to rationalize your horrible addiction to procrastination, Adrienne)
The important question now is:
What album should I listen to as I get ready for bed? I just finished listening to There For Tomorrow’s “A Little Faster”. So, do I continue the There For Tomorrow love fest with their Re:Creations EP? Or do I let myself be serenaded by Jared Leto and go with “This Is War”? Or do I steer away from rock music in favor of a more peaceful album? Do I go with some Owl City, an old favorite? Or do I go with something more acoustic, like John Mayer or Steve Moakler? Decisions, decisions, decisions. Believe it or not, I go through this mental debate every night. Picking the last album of the day is very important. It’s a summary of the day. It has to encompass the overall feeling of the day, as well as prepare me for the next day. This moment is the time for reflection.
I’ve got it. “Weathervanes” by Freelance Whales. Calm, peaceful, ladled with the desire for a better day tomorrow. Perfect.
Honestly, I could spend hours talking about it and not get bored. I connect everything and everyone to a song. I don’t care if my obsession is unhealthy. Music is the only thing that puts my mind at ease. It’s the one thing I trust.

hmm… I don’t really listen to Florence + The Machine so that’s a little difficult but you might want to try Marina & The Diamonds. I don’t really listen to them either, but I have their song “I Am Not A Robot” which is pretty good.
If you’re into female singers, you obviously can’t go wrong with Paramore. There’s also this all girl garage rock band from France called “Plasticines” who I really like. Also, listen to “Young Blood” by The Naked And Famous, I’ve posted their video on here a couple times. They’re more like Passion Pit and MGMT though who you might also want to check out if you haven’t heard of them already.
Some random suggestions of bands that I’ve been really into lately are:
Freelance Whales: Very chill, very indie and they actually make a banjo sound cool!
There For Tomorrow: love. Pure rock. Great lyrics. Maika Maile, the lead singer, has a great voice. I would marry it. AND they’re playing Warped Tour this year, which you should go to!
Pheonix: I’m sure you’ve heard of them. If not, check them out. They make me happy
Vampire Weekend: Again, you’ve probably heard of them. I always think of the beach when I listen to them
Cobra Starship: This is the first band I ever obsessed over. They will make you want to dance. Their first album was more rock, the second was a good mix between rock and electronic dance music, and their latest album is slightly more electronic but still had tons of different genre influences.
The Killers: classic indie rock circa 2000
So start there. Hope I didn’t overwhelm you too much. You can always just go to my tumblr and listen to my playlist at the top for more. Or just go through my old post and watch all the videos :D
I don’t want to live my life another day, if I have to live it with my mouth taped shut and my hands tied behind my back. That’s the way I feel every day lately and the worst part is knowing that I’m the one who ripped the tape and tied the rope. I’m not motivated to do anything anymore because everything I do feels like a lie. An act. A show that I have designed and starred in for the sole purpose of pacifying such a demanding and judgmental audience. I want to scream at everyone, make them listen, make them see who I really am, but a scream doesn’t come. I silence it. Replace it with a pleasing cliche. A beautiful lie. I want to change every aspect of my life and myself, but there have been too many years spent creating this facade. I feel trapped and that scares me.
Whenever I go shopping, I always see stuff that I really like, but I never try it on because I think I’ll look stupid or like I’m being something I’m not so I just stick to jeans and plain fitted shirt. The truth though is that the clothes I want to try on are more me than the clothes I own, but I’m afraid to change now. I honestly feel like I’ll look horrible in anything else but average, boring clothes. But even in average, boring clothes, I feel very… bleh. I fade into the background and I’ve been fine with that for a while…
