There's No Place Like Here: A mix about the long last days of summer, and about moving away and finding home again


Notes: I should really have leaned my lesson by now. I finished this mix weeks ago and had it all finished and ready to post but when I pressed the post button it all got lost in translation. Usually with longer posts, I always copy them just in case. Just. Ugh. But it is here now and still timely, I think. 

This mix holds a lot of feelings for me. Many of the songs are songs that remind me of my boyfriend and our long last summer together before we each go to separate colleges. They're about getting high and having fun, but also just about being in love. But they are also about what happens after summer is over, after we part ways (which, at this point, has already happened for me and him, but had not happened at the time I originally created this mix). It's about finding home again, too. Whether that this going back to your original home or making a home all your own with new people and new places even though you might miss the people you left behind.

This mix is 26 songs (long, I know), mostly mp3s with a couple mp4s. And it comes complete with a summery picspam, just because I believe it's such a worthy subject for a picspam.

Comments and downloads are greatly appreciated. :)

P.S. Is there any way to create zip files if you don't have a paid membership to these downloading sites? I'm a poor college student who loves zip files just as much as the next person. 


Do you remember when we would dance in your apartment? )

Ships on the Ocean Floor: A mix about growing up and missing the sea (or a coastal road trip mix)



Notes: I live in a sadly landlocked state. Even before I saw the ocean for the first time, I had this immense longing for it. When I first saw that wide open blue, I knew I was in love. Every year about this time (spring to summer), I get really homesick for the sea. I go into these really melancholy moods where all I can think about is how I want to see the sea. This mix is more or less a love note from me to the sea.

The songs on this mix aren’t all necessarily about the ocean. The ones that aren’t are just songs that make me think of the sea because of the feel: the lyrics, the music, the beats, etc. It’s a lot of acoustic/indie/melancholy music.

This is the first time I’ve used Mediafire. Let me know if anything doesn’t work. There are two mp4 files. The rest are all mp3s. 22 tracks. Comments are love. <3

A note to my friends: This isn’t necessarily me coming back completely, but it is perhaps the start of me coming back.

From my own true love lost at sea )

I want to live a simple life. 

I want to live near the ocean and work at a small, local paper. I have no desire to be a huge, well-known reporter, no desire to win the Pulitzer Prize, no desire to work for the New York Times and write on court cases and government every day. 

I want to live in a small community where life is slow and everyone knows everyone else. I want to write feature stories on the locals and have them like me as a human being. 

Eventually, I want to have children and actually have time for them. I want to drive them to school in the morning or make them sack lunches and urge them out the door so they won't be late for class.

I want to be out on the beach when the thunder starts rolling in, when the clouds go dark and the world turns into this crazy beautiful place.

I want to be friends with musicians and hipsters and hippies and go to the local farmer's market ever week in the summer and then sing around a campfire at night.

I want to wander into the local bookstore every day and just take it all in, breathe in every scent and every emotion. And then I'd wander down to the coffee shop and sip my mocha in the ocean air.

I want to be able to go down to the ocean every day and dip my feet in the sand and the water even when it's freezing cold. I want to be able to smoke as much as I want and not have to think about what my mother might think of me.

That would be the life for me.

I have had the best past couple of days. :) I am feeling very happy and content with life right now. I have to say that it's a wonderful feeling. (The boy. Oh, the boy. <3 Holy moly. I don't even know what to do with myself.)

Hope you're all doing well. I'll catch up on flist and everything probably on Wednesday. Love you all. <3


Full disclosure: This post is really just an excuse to use my new favorite gif. :D

This is a meme I did several months ago. I thought maybe it'd be good to go back and do it again to see how much has changed since then. For instance, I no longer have a massive amount of ATWT icons and instead of having no Harry Potter icons, I now have a ton.

MAH ICONS.
