When Mr. BFF and I started talking again last year, I made him a playlist — as a gift but also as a joke/challenge because his music taste seemed pretty fucked back then — sorry man, you know it was.

So I put a few songs together that I liked…

Last you heard from me I was just hitting up 7 months ago me (now 9 months ago, actually. Shit, time flies!). I know it’s been a while since then, and I guess I just needed some time to rest and live my life for a little bit.

Then today…

Flew by. Felt like a lifetime.

Dear Karol from seven months ago,

Please don’t freak out as I tell you that this Christmas break you just started is not gonna be a quick break at all. To be more precise, you are gonna stay here for exactly 7 months. I know girl, breathe. …

And what happens when they are really good for you

A few days ago, on the first night we finally saw each other again, Mr. BFF and I re-watched The Lake House. Aside from the fact that the story of the movie is absolutely beautiful, it mentions this other story about second chances — about two people who decided to…

You’d come over, right?

It kinda hit me out of the blue. I was browsing through Youtube when I saw it, and I couldn’t help but clicking on it. The song. One of many masterpieces from Julia Michaels and the absolute genius with an angel voice JP Saxe. His…

Might not have always been a fairy tale
But you know and I know
That they ain’t real

I swear to God, I’m glad…

Okay hold on for a second. I know this might actually sound crazy (what here doesn't?), but I think that before I start talking about hope, I need to talk about fear. Most importantly, what fear does to hopeful people.

Listen, I’m a hopeful one. I like to blame it…

And what to do when you can’t have them (?)

I heaved the heaviest sigh of relief, dropped the largest fucking weight I’ve been carrying on my shoulders for months now while I read the news today.

I know life gets in the way sometimes and we gotta whole-heartedly accept how things are in the present. But when there’s light…

About thousand-mile distances

You know when they say a picture is worth a thousand words? Then whenever several words are all placed together in a melody, and we call that a song, that to me is worth a full feature movie.
