RIP, past

I don't really know what goes on in the blog world any more! And yet here I am, posting again. I feel like a weird obligation to post things that go on in my life. I don't want people to think I'm dead.

Recently I binge-read a bunch of blogs I worshipped a few years ago (in my blogging prime you could say, ha-ha) and I got this huuuuge surge to document everything I did again. I'm super into the idea of having a solid documentation of all the weird phases I go through (including blogging bahaha), and not just a tumblr. I totally dig producing my own stuff, I wanna write a zine, take a million pictures on expired disposable, record shitty garage songs in a basement, make super bootleg patches of my favourite bands. DIY, bitches.

I used to be super into the whole gain a billion followers, be successful lalalala but it's just like??? now I feel like I'm actually just blogging for me. I don't need anybody's approval and I don't need a billion people to love me. This is kind of a public diary? cool. (hi mom)






Recently (ok October but shhh) my band went on a TOUR and it was basically the end/beginning of my LYFE. I feel like a changed person and all that jazz. Aside from all that is was a whole buttload of fun. I made some sweet friends I probably wouldn't have otherwise been so close with... (they are adults who can drive cars lololol i luv being 16) but also super rad folks... friendship :D


Other than that, I dropped out of school (yolo) and I'm doing online courses. They kinda suck but I get so much more sleep, more time for band things (over the course of tour I became a member of this band #dreamzcometrue), my job (I work at michaels arts and crafts holla) art things, etc etc life's just generally better. I kinda sorta majorly regret this decision in many senses (consistently deteriorating social life) (feeling of failure?? success??) (way too happy???) but it's the choice I made so whateva. I may go back second semester of gr. 12 but until then here's a documentation of the homeschooled life. Enjoy! Spread the word and stuff! FUcK SHCOol am i righT

SO here's my bi-annual re introduction to the blog world. Peace.

(stalk me on instagram now too!! wheres_captain_kirk)

  1. So excited to see you blogging again! I love the idea of the garage music and making your own zine and bootleg patches. I feel like stuff with rough edges (idk what else to call it???) is always much more fun! Also, you're only 16?!? I legit thought you were older than that???
