i spent the week housesitting for my dad while he was in portland. i had the hardest time falling asleep in my old bedroom. i spent the week watching terrible television shows in bed until the wee hours of the night, snuggling with my pups, and making hodgepodge meals with my friend amy. i’m reminded of how thoughtful my dad is every time i open my bedroom window. my dad planted trumpet...

the only love is a lonely love.
we’ve been in los angeles a bunch in the past week. to celebrate the beginning of my spring break we decided to go watch islands play at the bootleg theater. i’ve been listening to them on repeat for the last month so you can guess how excited i was to see that they were playing their only los angeles show on the day of my last final…i believe that’s what they call kismet. ...
“Only hang around people that are positive and make you feel good. Anybody who doesn’t make you feel good kick them to the curb and the earlier you start in your life the better.
