This Song Will Save Your Life

Does it sound weird and dumb, to say you remember falling in love with music? Because I do. I remember being 13 and discovering all these new bands, finally understanding why my peers were constantly wearing headphones. I remember connecting suddenly with a song, and thinking wow. I still have those moments, when I listen to a song for the first time, or the thousandth, and it hits me all over again.

I think music is one of the most amazing things humans have ever come up with.  Music makes us want to dance and cry, sometimes all within the space of one song. You can turn the sound up, and be drowned by a song. Maybe it's hearing someone else sing, hearing their voice, saying the same things we think or feel that makes music special. Whatever it is, music connects us in a unique way, it brings us together.

When Life Gives You Lemons

Sometimes, life doesn't go our way- the way we think it should go. We fight with people, we make mistakes, we find out the person we loved didn't love us back, we get teased for something we can't control.

Guest Post: Jo Day

Today I'm pleased to introduce a blogging friend! Jo Day has an amazing blog with equally amazing posts and she is super talented at blog design. We share the same personality (INTJ) and live in the same hemisphere, which makes me happy, because I feel New Zealand and Australia are under represented in teen bloggers. Please extend a warm welcome to Jo!

Recently | Hello May

Ummm, where did April go, exactly? I think I missed it. Last week someone said to me 'this year is hard, but savour it because it's also good.' I'm tying their advise to heart, I really am. But when you have an assessment in nearly every class and your teachers keep trying to squeeze a tiny bit more out of you, it's hard.
