I recently saw Gatsby in theaters and have been enthralled by Lana Del Rey's contribution to the soundtrack. This was my first go at covering the song.
I've had a lot going on lately, a lot on my mind, and with recent occurrences, I've really been forced to grow up. I've signed a year-long lease on my very first apartment, which I will be moving to in August, I've begun to explore my options for after graduation, and I'm planning my study-abroad trip in London this December.
I've been writing a lot more as well--- character studies, mainly, and short stories rather than my safety net of poetry.
This blog hasn't really been a fashion/outfit blog in a while now, but I'm okay with that. Maybe I'll pop up in photos from time to time, but I like the direction this is going. I want to share my songs and stories in the hopes of finding others like me, even others completely unlike me, and so that I can better myself as a person.
Anyhow, I hope that you enjoyed my ramblings, my amateur cover of an amazing song, and (for good measure) this photo of my face.

I've had a lot of that sensation of weightlessness lately. I've been wondering, too, how much of life I just kind of fall into (like an opportunity presents itself and I stumble along and go that route) versus how much I actually seek out and pursue— like the difference between letting things happen and building a life that way versus seeking out things that I ordinarily wouldn't have. Which then leads to the fear that I’m missing out on things with either road.
I honestly don’t know where I’ll be a year from now, after graduation.. and so to see my peers building towards something, planning, it’s a bit intimidating.. like they've been ready and waiting for this all along, and I was just writing my poetry and watching the sun set while this was happening!
Will I be teaching, will I go to graduate school, will I be able to teach in France? There are so many things out there, and I have no clue.
These photos don't have anything to do with the post. A friend and I went chalking today, and she told me to lay down while drawing around me. :)
