Hello! I'm a seventeen year old singer/songwriter born and raised in Calgary, Alberta. Aside from songs, I love creative writing and blog styled posts. I'm just here to write whatever I can, for anyone and everyone to read!
I don't really know what else to do except write. So here's my heart. It's broken real bad, but I'm going to try and let words fill the gaps. This is documenting heartbreak; no edits, no revisions, just raw truth and hurt.
Before the world was ending, at the very beginnig of the Covid-19 Pandemic, life was busy. For me, I was just a high school senior sitting in social class being told of a virus that seemed so far away in a land I didn't know much about. Then it was everywhere. It is everywhere. The world has been pushed into isolation, into spare time, into patience.
Most musicians love performing, seeing the crowd stand applauding in approval and awe. The spotlights gleaming on your smiling face, the edrenalin after a major performance. Don't get me wrong, I love it too. But there's something unexpectedly lovely about sitting legs crossed on a stool, in the corner of a dim lit room, pouring your heart out to a crowd talking and laughing amongst themselves in a restaurant or public event, barely listening at all.
Being in a relationship, 75% of the activities executed, are eating out and finding new places to eat! I live in the country side of Calgary, so venturing in to the city for a new food venue is always an adventure, here are my findings!
In this picture, I see blinding spotlights. I imagine the applause I always seem to forget from being caught up in the last three minutes. I feel my racing heart, no longer needing to stay in a calm and collected beat to the song I'd been singing. I see someone who's favourite place to perform isn't before the eyes of hundreds of people (no matter how much she loves it)... but in the seat of her parents car where her love and passion for music began.
I couldn't tell you how many times I've been in the mall, school, restaurant or any public place and been stopped to gratefully recive a compliment on an $8 jacket, $4 shoes or $12 dress and respond with "Thanks! It's thrifted!" There's nothing better than the look of surprise and facination I get in return!
