I finally wrote a new song. It’s literally been a month since my last video. A MONTH. I’m the worst youtuber ever, I stg.
I’m excited about this one. It’s about ‘Where She Went’ by Gayle Foreman, which I just finished reading this week. (I know, I know. Super late to the party. I finished If I Stay a million years ago and said I’d get to the sequel ‘eventually’ and post-movie seemed like as good a time as any.)
As far as my other books. Shatter Me is still incomplete. Need to retrieve those missing pages. And I’m about 75% through Mara Dyer #2 and I love Daniel Dyer more aggressively with each page.
Also, Noah. Babe. When Noah Shaw gets sad, the world gets sad.
And Mara’s entire life is just so effed up. I want to wrap her in a snuggie and comb her hair or something. She deserves a damn break from all this chaos.
What’s weird is that this is the kind of book I normally dislike. Where it’s just INFORMATION, CLUES, CLUES, CLUES, STUFF, MYSTERY, WHAT, WHAT, INFORMATION and little action. But something about this series, man. I’m a slave to it. It’s the characters and how bloody likeable they are. So witty and funny and the mystery is vague but so compelling and I care about these people and the story. And I just have a million questions and I’m eager for them to be answered. And it’s set in Miami so I can relate to all the characters and their complaints about it.
MY NEW SONG!!! Okay!!! It’s called ‘Cold Awakening’ and it’s got a different sound to it. I’m a little scared of how it’ll sound once I film it because you guys know how bad I am at singing in my head voice and this requires a lot of it. Cross your fingers for me, man. Let’s hope this sounds okay.
If I were Amy Lee my music life would be so much simpler.
Anywhooo, yeah. That happened. I have some plans for new videos that I’ll be filming this weekend, if all goes well. Keiter tagged me in a bookish thing a million years ago, and I’m super psyched for that. And I have another vlog I want to film. And I need to do my pitiful August wrap-up. (Spoiler alert, I read 3 and a half books if I finish Mara Dyer this week.)
I seem to be updating you guys on my entire life so let me cover all my bases: started school this week and MDC kills my spirit. My philosophy professor sounds like he swallowed John and Hank Green because his voice is a weird mixture of both of theirs. He could be a third vlogbrother, I swear. I bought some sushi today at Publix and it was delicious. I’ve written a whopping total of 3,000 words this week which is pathetic even with the excuse of *but you’re between projects*. I wrote that song. Uh. It’s been a boring week, despite having started school. Boo.
