I almost forgot about this blog for a little while. Hello to the faithful few who still read it 🙂 I'm on spring break for a brief couple more days, and then it's back to the crazy busy wonderful thing that is college daily life. I'm honestly quite stressed and worried about the remainder of… Continue reading no mourners, no funerals
2022 in media
some of this comes from a tag, courtesy of Emily : ) how many books? So far I have read 92! (I am doing this tag a bit preemptively because I just finished my final assignment of the semester and am very excited to do non-school writing. I hope to read 100 this year.) (Also,… Continue reading 2022 in media
some folk music from Grim
Hello all. If you do not know, one of my very best friends (known 'round these parts as the Grim Writer) has a wonderful blog where she talks all things writing, folk music, life, death, and the intersection of the four. If you haven't checked it out, you should do so. She's always recommending folk… Continue reading some folk music from Grim
The field was green as EdenThen it withered into brownIn the middle of my grievingThey came and cut it downAnd I was sure that it was all my faultThe day they mowed the garden to the ground What was good, good, goodIs gone, gone, goneAnd there's a little boy who's lost out in the woodsAlways… Continue reading pythia’s leaves
As You Like It: Hilarious but I'm not sure what the point is; everyone did end up married to the right person, though, so I guess we've got something positive going on. I still wouldn't recommend pretending to be a guy and getting your crush to flirt with you while you're pretending. (Or writing poetry… Continue reading recently: reviews

The air is crisp, the sky is bright, and as I walk along the neighborhood streets listening to The Hobbit or singing hymns with friends, I take courage. The world is so full of a number of things /… Continue reading an aesthetic autumnal atmosphere
albums at last !!
Friends, it's been eight months and I don't know whether to apologize or just to shrug and say, "Well, you get what you signed up for" (which with me is always a grand delay followed by apologies aplenty). Y'know what, if I don't apologize, then you'll get what you didn't expect: a grand delay and… Continue reading albums at last !!
I'm writing this from a makeshift desk set up under my loft bed, surrounded by the chaos of a mostly-unpacked and partially-organized life. I didn't know I had so much stuff until it was all laid out on the floor of my room. It's a little terrifying. But anyway. I am home -- or, well,… Continue reading year one.

I hope they bring you hope. // songs for when you feel the brokenness of the world very strongly // Caledonia, Voces8I don't… Continue reading a very particular playlist
light for the lost girl
And we wake in the night in the womb of the worldWe beat our fists on the doorWe cannot breathe in this sea that swirlsSo we groan in this great darknessFor deliverance So I think I'm going to be trapped in this cycle forever. This constant going back into the same old longing. The desire… Continue reading light for the lost girl
