Shedding Silence

So, my laptop managed to make a miraculous recovery. *killjoys make some noise~* She’s a real trooper. Anyway, that means I finally got around to playing with sound. And, to being frustrated by it. That said, I didn’t really feel a strong pull towards any of the not-to-do-list prompts. I did really like reading one of my works aloud in class this past week, though.

Can You Hear Me Now?

Okay, so we’re back.  Not only was I completely checked out during Spring Break, but these couple of weeks back  weren’t necessarily that great.

I took the time out to read the […]

Listen. No, really.

{I’m gonna start doing a thing. At the moment I’m jamming to this little DAY6 beauty and I feel like sharing. It’s so upbeat and happy… ugh, I love it. Feel free to listen as you read! Or not! I don’t know your music taste, haha. Won’t hurt my feelings any if you don’t. I’ll only cry a little bit. Enjoy the post!} And we’re back! Y’know, I kind of feel like my Spring Break wasn’t much of a break. First of all, […]
