Song Feature: “Dancing In The Dark” – Bruce Springsteen

Although in this analysis here I focus mostly on the words (which have a lot to say despite being accessible), let it be known that I admire his outfit, dance, and overall energy. Check out that fancy ankle work, foot tapping, and crowd engagement. Who else could pull off those rolled up short sleeves over tight black jeans? There's nothing fake about this man.

En francais?

Juin 2017 C'est peut-etre le temps a ecrire en francais. Je ne suis pas francaise du tout. J'avais etudie cette langue depuis septembre, l'annee derniere. Maintenant, je m'enseigne toute seule.

MIMI: “I’m nineteen, but I’m old for my age…”

The only thing that surprises me is that I hadn't grappled with these facts about me sooner. If I could summarize my first semester at college, it would be this: I have anxiety. If I could summarize my second semester at college, it would be this: I have depression. I don't know how I would … Continue reading MIMI: “I’m nineteen, but I’m old for my age…”

My State as a “Writer”

For a writer, which most people are, the struggle is often not finding the right words to say, but choosing what to say itself. Once the idea takes seed, the words flow easily. Recently, my own source of inspiration has began to run dry and I have had little to say to the blank sheets. … Continue reading My State as a “Writer”

The Virtuous Wife: Her Children Rise Up

At a more sober time, I began to realize that I had written a potentially hurtful piece on how my own mother … Continue reading The Virtuous Wife: Her Children Rise Up

After the Fall – A Voice From the Past

24 Music Videos We Wouldn’t Mind Watching All Day

I'm a classically trained violinist who bought a guitar this past weekend. This post is to celebrate that, to share my favorite things, and to keep me motivated to continue teaching myself those chords. If you kept me hostage for a day, I wouldn't mind it very much if I was shown the twenty-four following … Continue reading 24 Music Videos We Wouldn’t Mind Watching All Day

The Lord of the Rings: Another Fangirl Essay

Hello! Here's a little free discourse that I wrote earlier this year on one of my favorite artists of all time - an artist in the sense of a maker of worlds, and in the sense of vision and imagination. It's been over a year and a half since I threw myself in wholeheartedly into … Continue reading The Lord of the Rings: Another Fangirl Essay

Spring Break 2017: London, Paris, and More

In the latest jealousy-inducing episode of my life, I arranged myself a little solo trip to Western Europe, where I spent the all-too-brief week of my spring break in London, taking day trips to Windsor Castle, Stonehenge, and Bath (a 3-in-1), and Paris. The benefits of traveling alone are that if you love yourself, then … Continue reading Spring Break 2017: London, Paris, and More
