🍊 STRINGS: OUT AUGUST 22 🍊
Writing those very words alone is absolutely mind blowing. This EP has truly been years in the making, and an incredible journey beginning to end, from recording voice memos to exporting the final masters three years later. Words can’t describe how stoked I am for you all to hear these songs that I’ve poured my heart and soul into.
So help me on this final leg of the journey by staying engaged with all the coming updates over the next two weeks! I’m gonna need you all to make this release drop big!”

In his literacy narrative, Lives on the Boundary, Michael Rose writes on the inadequacies that the American Education system has when dealing with students from vastly different backgrounds. This idea has been incorporated, not only to the localities of the public schools or higher education institutions, but also on the political landscape that is currently happening in the United States. In many cases, such as Khasru’s case in Alex Moore’s Khasru's English Lesson: Ethnocentricity and Response to Student Writing and the Mexican immigrant’s case that Josh Cuevas focuses on in his article Hispanic Acculturation in the U.S.: Examining the Relationship between Americans' Ethnocentricity and Education, the political landscape that American politicians and its citizens create, profoundly influence the views that educators in America have against students who develop from different backgrounds. Rose observes many educators judging students due to their preconceptions, the political landscape of America and American values:

5 Years Ago…
Things were so different.
This thing changed my life.
I hope it changes yours a bit too.

A lot of what is going into these scripts happened to me in the last few years. I was right out of college, figuring out what it was like to live in an apartment and keep my bank account from hitting zero. I thought I was going to be an English teacher and got a graduate degree and a job for it. Then I realized I had some choice in the matter, and I wanted to do something completely different. From there, it’s been a joyful struggle to get to where I am, and I have joyfully struggled alongside my roommates. I’m telling you this story because this is pretty much happened. Sure, it’s exaggerated because stories get exaggerated, but it should feel believable. I don’t want to write a nostalgic story about my early 20s, or about how I’m going to maybe have kids and change in my 30s. I am writing about the turbulent time in my mid-20s when people are changing around me.
