When you look at a virtuoso like Orianthi & not get the credit she rightfully deserves as an influence, it's one of the main reasons why I hate popularity. But that's just the way it is. You have to have a big name in order to have an influence. Talent never comes first. It's nice knowing young girls wanna learn an instrument, but it is what it is.

I have a lifelong friend who is something of a musical prodigy, and he first fell in love with playing music by listening to classic pop/ rock like Billy Joel and Queen and he took up both the piano and percussion. As he progressed, he would discover other genres and virtuoso artists and they inspired him too. Now he is an acclaimed music teacher who is at the epicenter of a community. But none of it would have been possible without first being inspired by pop music.


So if Taylor serves as inspiration like that, that’s great, but I think it’s fair to say that she’s serving as an even bigger kind of inspiration broader than just music….one for expression and creativity. I will definitely give her credit for that. I just don’t care for the sassy stuff.

“My mom doesn’t believe in love. I think she stopped after my dad painted her soft skin with the harsh colors of blue and purple one too many times. Or maybe it was after the nights he came home smelling of cheap perfume she’d never wear. Or no, I bet she stopped when he picked their son as the canvas for his unwarranted anger. Growing up, she’d tell me that she’d pray God would make her heart like stone, like the rocks that the sea beats against over and over; she craved their inability to feel. She claims her prayers were answered, but sometimes, when she sees old couples walking hand in hand still very much in love, she turns to me with a sad smile and reveals that she always thought that’d be her and him and I have to look away. That smile, it’s her achilles heel; it tells of her shattered dreams and whispers softly of her broken heart.

My mom doesn’t believe in love. As soon as I could understand the concept she drilled it into my head that there was no such thing. She thought it was a waste of time, sneered at those who tried to say it was one of the things worth living for. Unnecessary, dangerous was how she described it. She said she’d be damned if I fell into its trap and ruined my life for a boy that would leave me broken.

Now I don’t know how to tell her that I feel the things she warned against. I dont know how to tell her that my heart jumps when I look into his eyes or press my lips to his. I don’t know how to tell her that I fell for a boy with plain brown eyes and a smile that reminds me of the sun. I don’t know how to tell her that I gave him my heart and now he has the power to ruin me.

She’s going to be so disappointed.”

It’s been ten years since I first heard Teardrops On My Guitar and instantly fell in love with Taylor’s music. And in those ten years I dreamed of seeing her live one day. These past two months I’ve been trying to come up with something fun to wear on june 15th. I knew I wanted to draw something, especially a snake. So I did these two jackets and I couldn’t be more in love with them! And then I thought the jackets weren’t enough, so I decided to stamp these tshirts for me and my best friend to wear in Dublin this summer. We will be travelling from Portugal 🇵🇹 to see @taylorswift live and I am so freaking excited and happy to finally see the person that has been my guiding light during the past decade of my life.

(I’m the short one btw 😂)

i just want a girlfriend that’s all i want to take her to the park and discuss how a swan fell in love with a swanboat and how tourism and capitalism intersect and what we think our dreams meant. i want to hold her hand during the scary parts of movies and hold her hand when people are staring and hold her hand just because we’re both alive and isn’t that something. i want to learn her favorite colors and how she feels about certain clothes and when the last time was she cried to music. i want to wake her up with kisses and keep her up the same way and discuss our secrets under covers and stay in bed all day. i want someone i can love in a big, all-encompassing way.

wow that was really long but i just rly like this movie and will probably see it 8 more times

seeing you kiss her like that made all the music in me go silent. i’ve never had a moment like that. one that just sucked all the air out of me. once when i was little i fell out a tree and it kind of hurt the same way, but something about this pain was lasting. i went home and i couldn’t breathe. i lie there in bed and i couldn’t breathe. i spent days in this airless haze, seeing the same scene play over and over in front of my eyes, thinking: you don’t love me. you don’t love me. 

30 Day Challenge to Raise Your Vibration to Grow Spiritually and Attract What You Desire

In a few days, I will be starting a 30 day challenge to raise my vibration/frequency to grow spiritually and attract goals I have that are in “vibrational escrow” as Abraham Hicks would call it. There are a number of things I will be doing to create this shift, but I have list 15 of the main steps here. I am hoping that this can help many of you.  

I. Meditate at least once a day. Meditating is simply clearing the mind. But when you do this, you connect with source energy. Doing so will prompt you to take guided action, or have certain thoughts that will help you manifest. 

II. Journal (gratitude, goals, scripting, and dreams). Read over and refine goals. You should constantly be perfecting goals and becoming clearer on what you want. Scripting is one of the best ways to write down your goals. It sends a signal to your subconscious that it has already happened, and your subconscious will make it so. Example: “Thursday was absolutely AMAZING! I won $5,000. I am so grateful. I am using that money as a down payment for a brand new car.” Record dreams; they can be messages from higher self, ancestors, and guides.

III. Exercise for at least 30 minutes a day. Especially if done in the morning, exercising can stimulate your conscious and subconscious mind. Overall health is something to strive for, regardless.

IV. No television. Television can have so many negative images and messages. And especially do not watch the news. Not watching the news is a general practice for me. Seldom is there anything positive. When there is important news that I need to know, the universe always finds a way to make me aware. 

V. No social media. Similar to television, and speaking to negative people social media can lower your vibrations. Social media can also give you a false image of what others’ are “accomplishing” and make you fell as though you are not making progress of your own. Retreat to self and nix Instagram. It’ll still be there later.

VI. No music. I love using music to raise my vibration. However, there is so much knowledge to retain from books. Use your time wisely and listen to audio books and inspirational videos on YouTube instead.

VII. Limit time on Pinterest and/or Tumblr to 2 hours a day. These are forms of social media BUT can be great resources. Just limit your time, because they can become “addicting” to where you don’t realize you have been on them all day. Pinterest is a great way to create individual digital vision boards and post info collected/saved. Tumblr is great for inspiration and informative posts.

VIII. Read at least 6 hours a day. Includes audio books. Sign up for Kindle Unlimited and Audible for 30 day trial membership to get access to free books. I created lists of books to manifest prosperity, confidence, and wealthy men part one and part two

IX. Cut off negative people. As much as you may like or love them, there comes a time where you have to distance yourself from negative people. That friend who always says “men ain’t shit,” she has to go! Because that statement is NOT true. And you do NOT want to have that belief while trying to attract wealthy men (or any man). You don’t have to completely remove them from you life, but limit the time you interact with them.

X. Recite affirmations. Locate affirmations and go over them daily. There are thousands of videos on YouTube that have affirmations geared towards certain topics. Find what works best for you. The best affirmations, though, are the ones you write yourself.

XI. Limit phone conversations to 30 minutes or less. Limit texting overall. If it has nothing to do with your goals or what you’re trying to accomplish, there is no need to carry the conversation. This is a time to spend with self.

XII. Drink a gallon of water a day. Think positive thoughts while drinking. Sounds crazy, but water is a great tool to use to manifest and is affected by positive or negative energy.

XII. Learn/practice another language for at least an hour. Download Duolingo and Rosetta Stone apps.

XIII. Fall asleep to affirmations and/or guided meditations. Also listen to frequencies. My favorites are 432 Hz and 528 Hz. Create playlists on YouTube or phone.

XIV. Only use positive words. “I can,” “I will,” etc. Do not use words such as “can’t” or even worse “spend,” and “broke.” Only speak to what you wish to create.

XV. Smile. Simple, right? But this will get you far. You should have no reason NOT to smile, because during this period you should either be working or doing I - XIV of this list. Smiling is an easy way to raise your vibration and frequency. You can trick your subconscious into believing that you are happy even if it is during a time you are not.
