My Top 5 Music Obsessions of the Day :: 2/22/17
Listen here on Spotify

Hello Wednesday, how goes it? Middle of the week, halfway there, the peek over to see the light at the end, and one of my favorite days of the week.

I’m feeling a bit on the tired side today. Busy days and a bit of fitful sleep, so I’m leaning on music (and coffee) to carry me through. So, what is helping me today?

Oasis and Placebo round out the five with two of my favorite songs from the both of them. That’s what is getting me through the middle of the week day.

I have yet to say a word to him. I just cannot confront him, or confront what he said. I have been ditching classes for two weeks, too, avoiding Troy and Robert both. Instead of school I take the 55 bus to South Coast Plaza every morning so Mom doesn’t ask any questions. I sit in the center court, … Continue reading What happened as I let it slip :: SOTD

My Top 300 Movies :: 186-190

186. Adult World Movies about writers are a big love of mine, as are coming of age stories, whether reality based stories, or works of fantasy. Amy is a struggling writer, a lost girl looking to sort out who she is in the world, and in many ways she is a blank slate of life experience. Her story, her high points and low, low ones, her embarrassing moments, her triumphant ones, and her persistence were real and raw and inspiring; I was rooting for her and wanting to know more when the credits ran.
