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? )

A few days ago, Mark taught me how to play downloaded movies on my computer - and this was the first on my list. Needless to say, I am in love. I have to admit to rather brainlessly liking movies. I'm not much of a critic and it honestly takes a lot for me to hate a movie - but at the same time it takes a lot for a movie to truly move me and this did just that.

I thought I'd be a little freaked out by the premise, but this worked for me. And even though it was kind of scary, I was mostly just feeling the same fear that the characters were feeling.

Andrew Garfield and Carey Mulligan (and even Keira Knightley, who I usually greatly dislike) were fantastic. Just. Holy shit. I sobbed, ngl. This isn't a movie I am going to forget any time in the near future.

I also may have ordered the book off amazon about two minutes ago. 

Because this movie made me feel things and kind of got me motivated, here's a picspam of some of the most beautiful and moving film scenes ever.



Sorry about my lack of posting and commenting lately. Real life has been sort of a blur lately and I haven't spent much time on the internet. I love you all. <3

These last few days, I've finally gotten round to organizing my computer. And I found a bunch of pictures with a similar theme: pretty places to sleep and/or take a nap. I've appropriately titled the folder "Places to lay my head" and now I'm sharing it. 

Tomorrow is newspaper day, so I probably won't be around at all. I love you guys. <3

Oh. There are A LOT of pictures. FYI.

I feel like I'm losing people, a lot of people. I don;t know if it's a me thing or if it's just people moving on. But it hurts and I want it to stop. So. Because I'm feeling down, I put together a little picspam. Today's theme? Girls with pretty hair as (mostly) seen from behind.

I just finished watching this movie. I'd bought it a couple months ago, but I never made time to watch it. Tonight, Logan left me alone again and I just needed something to kill some time. And, shit, I'm in love with this. Seriously. If you haven't seen this movie yet, please do. The acting is spot-on. It tugs at all the right heartstrings. On top of that, the soundtrack is amazing. I could listen to Alexi Murdoch all day. 

So, here, because I'm feeling so much love for this movie, have a little picspam of pretty.

For as much as I love Luke/Reid, these two had some seriously beautiful moments. I'm feeling seriously, annoyingly nostalgic for these days. ATWT, why you break my heart? :/
