Now playing: “Dance Off”

Earlier today Hannah texted me and told me to listen to Macklemore’s “Dance Off,” and now it’s been stuck in my head for the remainder of my day.

I wish I could say that I had something meaningful to pull from the many crevices of my brain so that I could write a decent blog tonight, but I don’t. Only the lyrics to this masterpiece.

So because I like to make sure that others join me in having songs stuck in their heads, have a listen:

Hopefully tomorrow will come with a new and exciting topic to write about.

So until then,

cheers. xx



The sun will rise in the morning

I’d be lying to you and myself if I said that I had anything good to say about the state of the election right now.

I’ve been stress-baking for the past few hours. I’ve literally been on the verge of tears. I even told my cat that it was his fault that Trump is in the lead.

And then, Obama popped back up in my feed — almost as if he had slowly tried to fade into the background or slip out the back door of the White House then realized that he still had millions of people who needed to hear his words of wisdom a few more times.

In less than two minutes, he lovingly¬†chats about how strange this election has been at times, and why we should pay attention to elections even when it’s not presidential. He stays calm, stays goofy, and reminds those of us who fell in love with him as president eight years ago and who he picked up along the way that we’re going to be okay.

And even if you were never on his side, maybe this one video could change your mind.

“We can choose to see the best in one another.”

Thanks, Obama.

Until tomorrow,

cheers. xx


Saving money is hard

In a time when I know that I desperately need to be saving money for some upcoming trips but the temptation of buying fun things right now, I’m doing everything I can to convince myself that I’m better off keeping my bank account in a respectable state.

Sometimes that convincing comes from the strangest of places. Like a rapper named Lil Dicky and a music video about saving money in any way possible.

And even though I’m not entirely sure that the message sticks with me very well, at least I can be entertained by it!

So take a gander at this video and maybe it’ll help you with your finances. Or your spirits. Or whatever.

Until tomorrow,

cheers. xx


Here, have some new music

In an effort to not be another day behind, I’ve decided to post another video, but this time to a song that I only heard for the first time in the past two weeks.

I haven’t got much to say about it, just that I’m diggin’ the sound of The Chainsmokers and I’m so happy that Jenna told me to give them a listen.

New music that I can fall in love with is some of my favorite stuff in life.

Until tomorrow,



One (two) of these things just doesn’t belong

Sometimes I’m thoroughly entertained by things which find themselves in places where they don’t seem to belong.

Like Josh and Tyler from twenty one pilots spending a day on a farm, for example.

I know I’ve spoken a lot this month about having things drop into our laps when we need them most, or simply being in the right place at the right time, but is it possible that sometimes things which don’t belong are still in the right place?

Did I expect to watch a video of this band hanging out on a farm tonight? No. But their behavior is exactly what I was expecting. Do I want to watch Josh and Tyler do random stuff like this in their own bizzaro way forever and always from here on out? Abso-flippin-lutely.

But it’s not just things that I see and fall in love with how the lines don’t seem to match up; the same can be applied to my life sometimes. Every once in a while¬†I find myself in some of the most ridiculous situations and I end up realizing that I’m definitely the odd woman out, but that somehow, I’m still fitting in.

So perhaps my love for stuff that seems a bit off can be boiled down to a “right place, right time” scenario simply masked behind a “wrong place, right time.”

Thoughts to ponder.

Until tomorrow (my birthday!!!!),
