I’m Not Here!


Hello! This isn’t actually me! Ok, yes it is. But at the same time it’s not. At the time you’re reading this, I will be somewhere on the east coast. Not exactly sure yet… maybe New York City?

Let me back up a bit. Last September my family and I were like “Hmm. We need to plan our next family vacation.” Once every couple years we go on big trips. One year we visited San Diego, Santa Cruz, Los Angeles, and Disneyland. Two years after that we made a donut around Nevada, going to Salt Lake City, the Grand Canyon, San Diego Zoo and San Fransisco. This year my mom really really really didn’t want to go to California. So on a whim she suggested we strike out and go to New York. It was a laughing sort of suggestion.

Now, eight months later, we’re going. We spent the time saving, planning, gawking at the fact that we’re actually going, and getting excited.

But no, we’re not only going to New York. This is a big deal. A huge trip. We’re going to be on the road for three weeks. We’re taking full advantage of it.

I am going to post all these goodies, photos and fun stories when we get back though. For now I wanted to share different types of music I enjoy listening to. Just cuz I want to. This blog is for sharing things I like, right?

Writing Music

I listen to both instrumental and lyrical music when I write. It really depends on my mood. Some of my favorites are Jazz albums.

Songs by Hallal Music which is an acapella group.

I also really like the Tron Legacy music soundtrack for more intense scenes or when I’m writing dystopia.

Jamming Sessions

When my sisters and I are home alone, we like to turn the speakers up and sing our hearts out. These sort of songs are awesome and make me smile and sometimes we dance and other times we float. It’s a lot of fun to hang out and enjoy each others music.

One song I really like is by Alessia Cara.

Another is from the cartoon “Mr. Peabody and Sherman.” I just love the lyrics and the way that the emotion is played through the music. It’s a good song!

And then of course we have The Greatest Showman. I haven’t seen the movie and don’t think I plan to, but the soundtrack y’all THE SOUNDTRACK!

Worship Songs!

Majority of what I listen to is Christian music, worship music. Just good, soul filling songs! Here are a few of my most favorite.

This playlist has 496 songs on it at the moment, and is forever growing. If you have a Spotify go ahead and give it a follow!

That’s all for this week. See you later!

    Wow, what an amazing trip! I hope you have a blast! And I love seeing what other people write to. My brother loves soundtracks so I’m around a lot of them while writing, but I write best to country.

      Sweet! Country music is something I’m actually starting to enjoy as well. When the lyrics are clean they can be pretty cool. Lawson bates writes some of my favorite country music. XD
      I’m actually on a train going to Chicago right now. 😀

        Wow, no way!! Amtrak runs through our town and we want to take it someday so bad.
        Well hey, if you ever need some recommendations there’s actually a lot of sweet clean country out there!!

          Thank you Kassie! We took the Metra. It was really nice and comfortable to be on. We didn’t have a hard time at all. I recommend trying it.

    (The Greatest Showman has some of the best music ever. In the history of the world. Just sayin’.) Also, I had memorized the soundtrack before I even watched the movie… althought those dance scenes are pretty amazing. Maybe you should just watch the scenes with the songs. All the lights and the costumes and– I’m ranting again, aren’t I? 😉

      I might watch it! I’ve heard so many good things about it. I love rannnts! Fans are the most fun to listen to. Thank you so much for your comment!
