What were some of your September highlights?


  1. Ahh, this all sounds so awesome.

    Twenty One Pilots moments are the best moments. ;)

    Newsiesssss. The World Will Know used to be, like, my favorite song ever. xD

    Yay Goodreads!

    Hmmm, watching good tv shows with my sister and critiquing all the characters and all the decisions they make. Seeing snow on the forecast. Good podcasts. Hamilton, Lecrae, and getting back into La La Land. Learning a bunch about film criticism on YouTube.

    1. The World Will Know gets me so pumped up too! Something about teenage guys shouting in over-the-top New York accents is very motivating. xD

      Aaah, reading that list makes me happy. I'm glad your September was a pleasant one.


    Random conversations with dudes are the best! ;)

    Congratulations on writing something that your conductor thought was awesome!!!

    1. 2cellos are the best. :D

      Thanks! By "my section" though I actually meant my section of instruments in the orchestra, namely the cellos. So he was praising our performance, not something that I wrote for the orchestra. But life goals, my friend, life goals.

    2. You're like the only other person in the world who knows they exist, I think... It makes me sad because I want to flail over them with everyone.

      OHHHHH. Oops. As you probably gathered, I know absolutely nothing about music...


Speak, friend, and comment!
