The Ancient Art of Writing Letters

Dear reader, I love receiving handmade things. So, I was ecstatic to receive this postcard from a fellow classmate. You probably think this postcard is pretty strange, especially since he’s addressing me as “comrade.” I’ll explain. We were assigned to make postcards as if we were in the age of Big Brother (from George Orwell’s 1984). […]

Getting my blog out there

Dear reader, I feel like such a hipster using hipster font, but it’s okay. Who knew using photo-editing apps could be so much fun? I’ve made two badges for my blog using my own photos: I posted them on my Pinterest (which you should check out…). Yours Truly, Elise

Vampire Day, Month, Year

Dear reader, I’ve been listening to this song nonstop: It’s Vampire Weekend‘s “Giving up the Gun.” The lyrics are a bit odd, but I love it. It puts me in a good mood, and I actually like the music video (and I rarely like music videos). Take a listen! They have many songs that I enjoy […]

Lily Allen is back!

Dear reader, My favorite singer, Lily Allen, released a new cover of a song after announcing a hiatus from music in 2009. It’s a cover of Keane’s Somewhere Only We Know, and it’s the first full song from Lily since so long ago. She was featured in P!nk’s True Love, but she only had a bit […]

Pinterest

Dear reader, I’ve already posted 2 times tonight, and here’s the 3rd. But there’s a lot of information that I need to tell the world (a.k.a. my 8 followers). I’ve made a Pinterest account (click here) so that I can get my blog “out there.” And where is “out there,” you ask? Just out in the interweb. […]

Once upon a time…

Dear reader, I’ve been getting myself to read more. I finally finished a book that I started months ago. The strange thing is that the book was one of the best books I’ve ever read, yet it still took me so long to read. I’m going to check out another book tomorrow, and I’ll see […]

Hey Beatles

Dear reader, I’m sure you’ve heard of The Beatles.You’ve probably heard of their song, Hey Jude, then. It was written by Paul McCartney for John Lennon’s son, Julian. Young Julian’s parents were getting a divorce. Paul wanted to comfort him during this hard time, and thus, the song was born. Hey Jude, don’t make it […]

The first of many

Dear reader, I have always wanted to journal. There are countless of empty notebooks in my bookshelf because I could never make myself actually write in them. Looking back, I feel like I feared writing in them because my writing would be too terrible or lackluster. I now have a blog, so I have to […]
