#TBT to yesterday when I took a train to Temecula at 5:45am after a night shift. Passed out cold at 5pm, woke up to eat bbq hot dogs with my family. #Birthday #PartyAnimal Gotta squeeze in everything however you can!
"Every man, at some point in his life, is gonna lose a battle. He is gonna fight and he is gonna lose. But what makes him a man, is that in the midst of that battle, he does not lose himself. This game is not over. This battle is not over. So let’s hear it one more time, together: Clear eyes, full hearts…" (Friday Night Lights, Season 1)
For real though, my hair! Got tired of hacking it off with dull scissors and then sporting ponytails. Showed the stylist pics of Carey Mulligan, obvi. This is post-long-day-and-falling-asleep-on-the-couch, but I LOVE IT.
Alright, alright, enough Tumblr selfies for awhile!
It’s interesting how songs can evolve. Sometimes I’ll write a song that feels relevant in the moment, but four years later, I don’t want to sing it anymore. Then something will happen in my life and the song becomes relevant again. The Rilo Kiley song “A Better Son/Daughter” is my most requested song—especially for people who are at the age I was when I wrote it. It’s sort of a mid-twenties lament. I retired that song a long time ago—it was too dark and I was embarrassed of how I was feeling—but now I’m revisiting it in my thirties. Also, fans always request the Rilo Kiley song “Glendora,” which is a ridiculous song, but for some reason, girls love it. I don’t think I’ll ever play it again. Well, never say never.
I LOVE GLENDORA. That line she sighs/cries/whines, “Why do you, Jenny” is like, the voice in my head when I’m making shitty decisions/getting myself into questionable circumstances. I can see why she’d hate it, but it was the first Rilo Kiley song I ever heard and I was like, 21, so DONE AND DONE.
