sunsets

hOI!

So today was very awful. My worst day in a while.

But hey, I’m not about to talk about my literal sob story.

I want to capture the best parts in my awful day and turn them into an inspirational metaphor because I want you guys to have fantastic days.

Again, today was horrible for me. There was a pouring storm outside, perfectly reflecting how I felt. But there’s something remarkable about the aftermath of storms: they end with prettier skies. Like, once when I was little, there was a bad storm outside. But after it ended, there was a beautiful rainbow. And at another time, there were a lot of tornado warnings and a severe storm that came through, but the sunset that ended was gorgeous.

Today was one of those scenarios. There was one of the most beautiful sunsets that I have ever seen outside today.

There was this brilliant golden color shining through the air, deep blue little storm clouds dotting across it like stars in a night sky, and a blanket of clouds. The glow caused the clouds of stormy blue to be a light pink, gently blending into lavender and into the surrounding darkness. And as the sunset progressed, the purple and pink mixed together like Vincent Van Gogh’s Starry Night (just not the same colors), and instead of that gold, there was a bright pink/red.

And the fact that just earlier I was in a very dark place, it made me feel a lot better, seeing that beauty arrive after that storm.

And happiness is similar-you sometimes have to get through trying times to get to it.

Metaphors.

I’ve been a little obsessed with two songs as of late.

“Gravity” and “Wake Up” by EDEN.

Those lyrics really get to me, like from Gravity when he sings:

“‘Cause I used to defy gravity, defy gravity
Goodbyes keep dragging me down
And I’m fighting gravity, defying gravity
I tried but I keep falling
‘Cause falling’s easy
But it only brings you down”

And also

“I know it’s hard, but no one said it’s easy
Falling’s easy
But there’s only one way up”

And from Wake Up:

“…Sun always seems to wash our fears away
And it’s always shining somewhere
I just gotta get there
And even though it seems like half the world away”

I totally recommend a listen to those songs.

So yeah.

Wherever you are, whatever dark place…it’ll get better. Even if it’s the simple things that make you feel at least a little happy again.

I’m saying this to you but I’m also telling myself the same thing.

Anyways,

Have beautiful days and wonderful lives.

*psst, I want to talk about more music stuff, but this isn’t as important so you can go right past this*

*i’m seeing oh wonder live in october and I’m so excited, they’ve helped me through a lot with “heart hope”. their first album is incredibly calming. also, dodie clark’s “secret for the mad” has helped me a lot too. taylor swift’s speak now album is always on repeat for me. i played it during my highs and my lows, and it’s appropriate both times. okay i’m done talking about music stuff now.*

    Clean your room you lazy child // new cat lady stool bc why not

    Song of the day – We Can’t Be Friends Anymore {Dream Koala}

    “I dont hav enuf muney for chikn nugits”

     

     

    My daily message to you is:

    Clean your room honey.

    It probably needs it.

    I just cleaned mine about 2 days ago.

    And I’m lovin’ it.

    Oops I did just quote McDiabetes.

    Yeah.

    . . .

    I don’t know what this is supposed to be.

    I guess I’m treating this site as some sort of virtual bullet journal.

    Anyways. 

    Today I did a lil’ shopping.

    Specifically eBay, a shoe store, two vintage stores {video out tomorrow}, and a fabric store.

    Currently, I’m working on creating an area of my room to work as not only a nightstand, but a makeshift desk to put my new typewriter on.

    And what desk would be complete without some sort of chair, right?

    Thus I had to do a lil’ antiquing to find a stool just to my liking.

    And today, I found just that.

    A stool for $6.00 at a vintage store in the sleepy town of Bellevue.

    It didn’t exactly have the prettiest fabric, so I went to the nearest fabric store to pick some up.

    When there, I found these two vintage looking fabrics – one with a floral pattern, the other with cats plastered all over it.

    fullsizeoutput_e6.jpeg

    Once home, I used a spoon to tuck the fabric between the stool itself and the cushion, making it fit snuggly on the stool – like this:

    My cat loves it, and once I placed it where it belonged, he immediately jumped onto and rubbed against it.

    My lil’ kitty baby.

    Hope you enjoyed this lil’ tutorial type thing – I guess.

    Free Lunch #27

    Hello there you blue screens of death. It’s Friday, so that means it’s time for Free Lunch! If you don’t know what that means, I basically just type for 5 minutes without stopping on Tuesdays and Fridays.

    Starting at 8:38.

    I felt like I did a lot of things done today and did a great job with productivity, but looking back, all I really did was play music at the library, buy a video game on Steam, and get to Level 26 on Pokemon Go.


     This all sounds very feeble when I write it down like this, but it felt like a ton to me.

    The video game in question is Kindergarten, which is a game that just got out of Early Access on June 15th! It was a contest between buying this or Rakuen, so next time I’m getting that. Unless I want to play To The Moon too much. Give me advice xD
    At the library, I played mostly Guitar but some Piano for about 2 and a half hours. I know i’m going to get an Electric Guitar for my birthday so i’m really excited about that. In honor of this, send a request for me to cover a song with the new guitar.

    Pls make them easy, I’m still bad at Guitar.

    For example, something too hard would be Smells Like Teen Spirit or Bohemian Rhapsody. Just leave your suggestion and i’ll tell you if it’s possible for me.

    Anyways, thanks for reading all the way down to the bottom of this post :3

    solivagant

    hOI!

    So this is my only time in the space of this evening to write a post, because i’ve been super busy every night this week.

    Considering the fact that I recorded a demo of this song today and am going to play it live tomorrow for around 200 people, I figured that I’d share it with you lot.

    ‘solivagant’ means wandering alone, by the way.

    And here’s my updated track list, I took out so many songs because I didn’t think they were my best. I’ve also been writing,

    1. broken one
    2. scarlet and crimson
    3. third
    4. to jupiter
    5. without a moon
    6. drunk
    7. poison
    8. earthquake
    9. cavity land
    10. ultraviolet
    11. masquerade
    12. apricity
    13. solivagant
    14. eigengrau

    So yeah! Here is “solivagant”.

    there we stand
    darkness has
    it’s hold
    on us
    \
    and we don’t
    need some
    one to 
    take us home
     \
    and our eyes
    don’t see
    each
    other
     \
    our minds
    drive us
    alone
    and voices
    blend into
    the sound
    of nothing
     \
    we are equivalent 
     \
     we are
    surrounded
    but we are
    distanced
     \
    we are solivagant
    words
    mean nothing
    when you don’t
    hear them
     \
    they seem to
    get lost
    on their
    way to me
     \
    and i am
    in front of you
    but it seems
    I’m not here
     \
    pull me
    down from space
    from this isolation
    set me free
    and voices 
    blend into
    the sound
    of nothing
     \
    we are equivalent
     \
    we are 
    surrounded
    but we are
    distanced
     \
    we are solivagant
    yes 
    i hear
    just fine
     \
    and yes
    i have
    some control
    of myself
     \
    i don’t
    understand
    my mind
     \
    some part
    of it
    is lost
    i guess
    and i
    am different
     \
    i am
    solivagant
     \
    but i will
    find you
     \
    i will
    find you
     \
    and this world
    won’t be so
    lonely
    anymore
     \
    and this world
    won’t be so
    lonely
    anymore. 
    Yeah!
    I’m very very very excited to play this tomorrow, i’m third in line for performance (hahahahahhaah third, oh the irony), and I get to play it on a grand piano.
    Ah.
    If you didn’t catch this song’s meaning, it was written about feeling distanced and all
    alone, even when you’re surrounded with people, or talking with other people, whether that’s in real life or over technology. It’s a feeling of detachment, and feeling like whatever you’re facing, there’s nobody standing with you.
    Which is something I feel, that’s why I wrote a song about it.
    Sorry for the sad message.
    AND you are not alone. I may be contradicting myself for things that I’ve felt, but you are not alone. And sometimes, things we feel don’t have much logic attached to it, anyway.
    But yeah, feel free to leave feedback in the comments.
    I hope you liked it.
    Have wonderful lives.

    Thinking about Thinking

    Also known as meta-cognating. 

    Lately I have been thinking about thinking a lot, and I guess right now I’m thinking about writing about thinking about writing about thinking about thinking.

    Confusing, right?

    Well thinking about thinking is lonely in a way, because I think that I’m just a brain separated from everything else in my body, except if I’m just thoughts do I even own my body, and how do I move and act?

    Science explains the electronic pulses in my brain (A.K.A all of me since I am just thoughts) and all my movements, but doesn’t it seem like we are something more? Or is that just overconfidence and superiority complexes?

    And why did I just switch tenses?

    Ok this journey into my mind is probably either boring you or hurting your brain so that is all for now, Goodbye!

    Oh and I nearly forgot, as I used to say long ago:

    It’s time for the Jedi..to end.
