High Fidelity has been in my Top 5 movies since I first saw it. I watch it annually, and usually more frequent than that. The soundtrack is a staple in my life, as are the many amazing quotes that litter my existence. While I’ve always thought of myself as a bit of a music snob (read: what I listen to is better than anything you’ll ever listen to), I know I’ve never been as snobbish as Rob and his friends. Honestly, those guys give me serious #friendgoals. Haha! Continue reading “Side 1s, Track 1s”
I used to have this shithead of a friend who was a shitty shithead from the beginning of our friendship. But I held on because I do that and I try to see the good in person – but in retrospect, she was a terror. The only good thing she offered to my life was introducing me to some bands that I still love today.
What’s sadder is that I realize that the description provided above could be applied to at least a handful of people who have come in and out of my life. God – I should have more self-respect and leave the assholes at the door.
My past has been haunting me the past 5 days or so. Specifically, Fall of 2009. Some of it has been intriguing and some downright nerve racking. Just wish I could make sense of it.
I’m a painfully nostalgic person and I’m always looking for signs of something so all of this has really been playing with my head. In the end, I’m sure it means nothing and I’m just wasting my time overthinking things.
Apparently I broke the seal on posting blogs, so here’s another internet funny I came across.

So, it’s 2017 and I haven’t blogged in so long that I actually forgot my blog’s site. Luckily the login was saved or I probably would have had issues with that too. Anyway, nothing much that I want to say out loud, but here’s something funny I just came across.
I’m experiencing this intense revival of the emo music I used to listen to in the 90s and early 2000s. Let’s be honest, I never stopped listening to this stuff, but a couple friends went to the Wrecking Ball Festival in Atlanta this past week and their snapchats and various other styles of posts brought back a younger me. Their posts also brought out a fierce jealousy – will definitely need to take advantage and go to that next year. Also, Ben and I are preparing to move into our house (yes, we bought a damn house!) so I’m reorganizing our hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of CDs and came across these ones I made in college for myself with just endless mixes of emo music. This is what we did before iPods (but after cassettes), kids. So the past few days have been filled with awesome music, weird memories and tons of nostalgia. Today, I heard the above song come on by a total no-hit-wonder band out of Orange County called Smile. And it brought back a memory of spotting the lead singer at Target but being way too shy to go up and say anything to him. Hah!
I recently visited a friend and she made this great vegan chili for me out of a slow cooker cookbook she has. Well last night, I took a stab at it and made the recipe for us – and it’s awesome! Here’s the recipe including a couple of my small edits:
Ben and I are a little late to the party, but this week we started watching Making a Murderer on Netflix. I think most people binge-watched this over the holidays, but we never like to follow the trends. I’d seen the show numerous times on Netflix and just thought that sounds too serious to watch. I really like to watch funny stuff, uplifting stuff, romantic stuff. Not to say that I won’t watch serious stuff – I also love dramas, but on most days I want to be left with a smile rather than a frown. But considering the entire universe seems to be talking about Making a Murderer, I figured it was time to check this out. Since the world has already shared the biggest spoiler about the outcome of this case, I walked into this knowing there would be no happy ending waiting for me.
