(It's On Us)

"And you're the one I'm looking for. It's so wrong... I didn't know until you were gone"

(Buy You a Rose)

"One sip, bad for me. One hit, bad for me. One kiss, bad for me... But I give in so easily"

(Weak)

(Alice by the Hudson)

"I'm not where I'm supposed to be; I hope that you're missing me"

(Sober Up)

(The World is a Marble Heart)

"We had to part, couldn't break her heart 'cause their blood pumps through her veins"

(Pitchfork Kids)

"In my mind I thought the birds would sing and sparks would fly, but it's just quiet. Am I cruel? Or am I ignorant or was I fooled, by the stories I knew."

(Turning Out)

"Was it all in my head? In an empty bed. And I told you that I need you baby, can't you see I'm alone?"

(Infinity)

"So, who am I to take away what makes you feel this great?"

(No Grass Today)

"We break up with lovers and friends, make love to the rumors instead. Maybe we're addicted to it all, the drama is dangerous- but it's so exciting to us"

(Drama)

"Lift the weight up off your back, you're with me, love, just relax"

(Woody Allen)

"And its tough believing, there’s someone living out there, happier than me"

(Buy You a Rose)

"Met so many faces that will probably forget me. Boy, I bet I look so grown up, shirt tucked in my jeans"

(Call My Dad)

"...but I'm scared as hell, that you won't like me in the morning. Oh, that you won't like me, the way I like you"

(3AM)

"Take my hand, and let me know that it feels good to feel at home"

(The Green and The Town)

"But when we cry, we cry together"

(Growing Old on Bleecker Street)

"It's the loneliest life that we live"

(Pitchfork Kids)

"You're working so damn hard, you forgot what you like"

(Come Hang Out)

"One last chance to make it real. Baby, I wanna tell you how I feel"

(Livin' On Love)

"Someone told me to be selfless, but we are helpless without attention"

(Three-Thirty)

"I won't forget you, but I may… forget your name"

(I'm Ready)

"Who are we to wonder where we're going? Who am I to tell me who I am?"

(Netflix Trip)

(I'm Ready)

"I just really wanna call my dad... I feel so broke up, I wanna go home"

(Call My Dad)

"Like a flower sheltered in stone, with no chance of regrowing"

(The World is a Marble Heart)

"I'm a little kid with so much doubt, do you want to be there to see how I turn out?"

(Turning Out)

"I will search the green, and I will search the town. But I will never find no one like you"

(The Green and The Town)

"If there's a good part, then I hope it's not far, 'cause I thought it'd be today"

(The Good Part)

"My favorite color is you. You keep me young, and that's how I wanna be"

(Sober Up)

"We act like reality shows, probably 'cause reality blows"

(Drama)

"You start thinking about the clock ticks, you get nervous, you start stressing"

"Boy it's good to know I got a bud like you!"

(Bud Like You)

I Was At The Atlanta George Floyd Protests, Here's What It Was Like Before The Violence Started

What started out as a peaceful protest quickly resulted in destruction, with mixed opinions leading narratives on both sides.

When I heard about the protests happening in my city in honor of George Floyd, a black man who was brutally and fatally detained by police in broad daylight, I was conflicted about the best way for me to support a cause that I was passionate about. The senseless killings of people of color in America had been weighing on me, and I was eager for a way to help, to do my part.

However, there was the issue of the coronavirus, a very real and troublesome threat that is still controlling our daily lives.

If You Can Eat Crap And Stay Thin You Aren't Healthy, You're Lucky

Everyone has that one friend — the one who eats to their heart's content but never gains an ounce. Meanwhile, you feel like you gain five pounds just stealing a glance at a hamburger! My childhood best friend was like that, much to my chagrin. Anyone who hadn't witnessed her eat might be tempted to say that she was thin because of her diet, but she would sometimes eat a bag of Sour Patch Kids as a "meal." One time, I watched in awe as she chowed down on a "salad" made up of one part romaine lettuce, two parts shredded cheddar cheese, and two parts French dressing — it was nothing more than a red lake of dressing with bits of green and orange debris floating in it. Clearly our definitions of "salad" were quite different, as were our perceptions of a balanced meal.
