Why "Here" Is My Anthem


"But honestly I'd rather be somewhere with my people we can kick it and just listen to some music with a message like we usually do and we'll discuss our big dreams, how we plan to take over the planet.."

Because I've been there.


Because I'm the girl who often gets lost in her own thoughts who once felt "weird" because people didn't understand her.

"Why are you so quiet? Why are you so shy? "

I always wanted to scream I'M NOT SHY I JUST LIKE MY SPACE! but instead just smiled and carried on.

Because when I think back to college life I had to get drunk in order to have fun at the club and when I wasn't I stood off to the side and watched everyone quietly feeling like an outsider, like I didn't belong.

The last time I "partied" was homecoming last year and I'm not who I used to be so I didn't "turn up" and I literally blank stared the whole night and was like why am I here! I could've spent that $20 on some wine.

Because I'm the girl who would much rather kick it with my friends in our "brown paper bag" and make a music video and reminisce about old times.

We just got together recently and made a 24/7 vid!

Because I spent a week alone in my house this summer without stepping out and was actually perfectly content with that.

Yupp. A whole week. Spent writing. Filming. Trying to figure out what I want to do with my life. you know paha

Because my book collection is constantly growing and I can lose hours in one day getting lost in them.

Ever want to know what to get me for a gift? Gift card to a used bookstore. Yupp.

Because I find solace in solitude and when I'm out sometimes ask myself what am I doing here, so I'll just be over here...

Signed, an introverted, sometimes awkwardly quiet, young woman with big dreams:)
