Basement Recording: “Last Night, Good Night”

Were you expecting a spring season first episodes post? Nah. Don't actually read this post, okay? I turned 20 today, and last night I made a breakup happen for the first time in my life. I sure hope it's the last, but even saying that makes me feel naive. So as any amateur soprano …

Continue, Don’t Quit : You Are Not in This Alone

I know this has been reblogged in the community a lot already, but bear with me – this is an important post. Not going to say too much here, since Auri says it better. But I’m here too, if anyone wants to chat about anything.
I am fortunate enough to not have experienced the death of a close friend, but I know I’d be devastated if it ever happens. Death hurts, and there’s nothing I fear more than losing someone to it.
I once tried contacting a counsellor through the Internet to talk about life during high school, but was put off by the professional way in which she asked me to book an appointment. It doesn’t matter how well I know you or if I know you at all, and it doesn’t matter how great or how inconsequential you think your problem is; you can easily shoot me an email by clicking on my contact page.

Manga Toritsukareru Koto

Some days, as you wake up, you wonder what the point of this is. This whole talking, eating, sleeping.

Every day, you have a heavy secret in your heart. One that grows heavier with every person you don’t tell it to. That weighs you down more and more as you think it but don’t say it out loud.
Until it gets so heavy, so LOUD, that you can’t believe that it’s only three words. Three simple words to think, but three very difficult words to feel.
And so, again and again, you think it, but you don’t speak it. You can’t say it.

My friend Perlem suggested that we could potentially create a sort of peer editing network, possibly through Twitter, as a place …
