home for the week, reflecting on my time so far in LA
Ok, last night was... too great for words. Got to see @brandicarlile play all of Joni Mitchell’s “Blue” at the @laphil . She sang her heart out as Joni and Elton John watched from the fourth row. Brandi said that “Little Green” was the song that made her fall in love with Joni’s music. Me too. I cried when she played this, and I don’t know if it was sadness or happiness or a mixture, but maybe that doesn’t matter. It made me feel something, and isn’t that all music is supposed to do? Brandi said it tonight: Joni is our Shakespeare. There’ll be icicles and birthday clothes and sometimes, there’ll be sorrow...
Been talking to a lot of people about authenticity lately and how important it is. So on my birthday, I wanna share a little piece of myself. 22 was kind of hard! One of my dearest friends told me that my openness and vulnerability was my best and worst quality, and she was right. I was an open book, but this year really taught me that maybe not everyone deserves to read all of my pages. Maybe boundaries are sometimes a good thing. Maybe there’s a difference between vulnerability and spilling your heart on the floor at someone’s feet. 22 was filled with growing pains, physical pain, heartbreak, and more tears than I’ve ever cried. I was forced to face trauma I’d buried; it was terrible, even though I know it was for the best. I’m still in it, but at least I’m letting myself feel it and process. 22 wasn’t all bad though! There was so much good. I moved to LA, wrote over 30 songs, played music with lots of people, found a dream apartment, laughed at lots of tweets, hugged my cat a bunch, loved people deeply. I just want 23 to be a year where I continue to try to love myself as much as I can. Two steps forward, one step back.
bitch don’t steal my man 🤪 @delacey
nothing makes me happier than this 🤘
maybe i’ve been watching too many @rickeythompson videos but HONESTLY!!!! WE ARE DONE SETTLING FOR ANYTHING LESS THAN WHAT WE DESERVE!!!!! if they don’t wanna feed you raspberries on the beach, CALL THAT UBER BABY! YOU ARE A FIVE-STAR MEAL!!!
ONE YEAR SEIZURE FREE! Throwing a party... no strobe lights allowed!!! . . . . . In all seriousness tho, this is a huuuuuge frickin milestone for me. A year ago, I was in Antwerp feeling incredibly hopeless and frightened. The diagnosis of epilepsy in February of 2018 really changed my life. I was fired from a cruise job, not allowed to drive (lmao ), and felt like my general future was falling apart. Was put on various meds that made me crazy until I convinced my doctor to let me try medical marijuana; I haven’t had a seizure since. Now I Venmo request my mom once a month for “Mary Jane 4 My Brain” : ) here’s to many more years of making my parents fund my drug usage hehe
just enjoying a quiet evening alone, singing my favorite @michellebranch jam! 😤🌬
Did a little interview with @voyagelamag ! So grateful to be featured in their “Hidden Gems” series. I’ve been in LA less than 6 months, and sometimes it’s definitely terrible, but things like this make me feel EXCITED! Here’s a little piece of my story... and a link to my most likely unfunny meme-flooded twitter. Link in bio. 🌻
If you don’t know, now you know: I stan the @jonasbrothers . I quite literally LIVED for these boys from the ages of 11-16. Saw them live 8 times, peed myself two of those times, sobbed uncontrollably, and frightened my dad with a massive @joejonas poster right next to my bad. I was writing Jonas fan fictions before I was writing songs. And let me tell you... those fan fictions got weird. So if you think I’m not gonna post a cover from their new album.... RETHINK. #happinessbegins
Yesterday marked 5 months in LA. It’s been a wild ride with a lot of pain, but I’ve written so many songs with so many amazing people and I think that makes it all worth it. I’ve got a long way to go, but I feel grateful to have a passion that drives my life, even if it tends to veer me off course. 🚘
God dammnnn, last night was so FUN! Thank you @thevoicecasting / @lukewademusic for having me as a featured artist at the open mic! I haven’t sang without accompanying myself in so long and it was fun to FEEL LIKE A LIL ROCKSTAR! This is Fire by the queen of the earth @sarabareilles . Huge shoutout to @julianxavier and @jennakalista for singing back ups with me... I know you can’t see them in this video, but THEY’RE HERE AND THEY ARE WONDERFUL!
