Day 62 – Break Up In A Small Town


Sam Hunt’s new video came out yesterday and it’s better than any other post you’d get from me.

If I were blogging it would be about how I can barely walk because I somehow managed to pull my glutes bowling like a senior citizen. Limped my ass (literally) to bed and am hoping to wake up restored.

So yeah…Sam Hunt in full mountain man mode. I can dig it.

Day 23 – GNO For LBT

Had an awesome, albeit hot and sweaty, night out at The Greek for the Little Big Town show with my boo thangs. Music always has, and always will be, my soulmate.

Surprise of the night was a guest appearance by Tori Kelly mid-set. Definitely one of those times you’re lucky to be seeing a show in a city like LA where cameos are more likely to occur.

As much as I wanted to, I couldn’t bring myself to drop $30 for the Girl Crush snap back and/or $35 for the Mmmm Motorboatin’ tank top. Concert merch, why you gotta be so expensive? I shall wait for a sale in the online store like the bargain shopper I am.

Day 8 – Mood Lifting Music

After a really crappy start to my day, I was so thankful to have a night of great music with close friends to look forward to. I was upset that I carried my less than stellar morning with me all day, but glad that I could finally shake it off, literally, with some white girl dance moves. Continue reading…

Born & Raised

Every now and then you get stuck on a song that perfectly captures where you are in life (mentally…sometimes physically). You think, “Damn, if I were more of a poet, more of a wordsmith, these lyrics are EXACTLY what I would write to describe how I feel in this moment.” For me, lately, that song has been “Born and Raised” by one of my all-time favorite songwriters, John Mayer.

Now and then, I pace my place
I can’t retrace how I got here
I cheat the light to check my face
It’s slightly harder than last year
And all at once, it gets hard to take
It gets hard to fake what I won’t be
‘Cause one of these days, I’ll be born and raised
And it’s such a waste to grow up lonely
I still have dreams, they’re not the same
They don’t fly as high as they used to
I saw my friend, he’s in my head
And he said, “You don’t remember me, do you?”
Then all at once, it gets hard to take
It gets hard to fake what I won’t be
‘Cause one of these days I’ll be born and raised
And it’s such a waste to grow up lonely
I still got time, I still got faith
I call on both of my brothers
I got a mom, I got a dad
But they do not have each other
So line on up, and take your place
And show your face to the morning
‘Cause one of these days you’ll be born and raised
And it all comes on without warning

I mean…sometimes it’s so damn perfect you could explode. All.of.the.feels.

And then, sometimes, you just want to rap along to “F**kin’ Problems.”
