hum. hang in there, homie. today seems like it's been especially emotional and i hope you get through the negativity with as little pain as possible.

Ugh, thank you for noticing. Do you follow me on Twitter? I apologize if you do, but fuck, today was so fucking bad.

I can’t get over how shitty today - outside of work - was.

And it’s all stupid stupid money issues. If I had just a couple hundred to like two-ish grand, it would fix everything I’m dealing with atm and that’s so fucking stupid imo.

Anonymous asked:

What are ten albums you would recommend to someone looking to broaden their music library?

Depends on what they are listening to right now, but I guess I’ll try to pick albums that helped me broaden my own taste/library. Uhhh let’s see.

Arctic Monkeys | AM

Amy Winehouse | Lioness: Hidden Treasures

John Mayer | Continuum

Lupe Fiasco | The Cool

Breezy Lovejoy | Cover Art

Yuna's self-titled debut

The Internet | Feel Good

Barcelona | Not Quite Yours

The Flavr Blue | Pisces

Ed Sheeran | +

I mean, it’s definitely not whole projects that have shaped my music taste now, I would have to say it was a song here and there that I stumbled upon in a bookstore or work  or a coffee shop or obviously a music store that I surprised myself by liking, and it’s little things like that - single songs - that make me go searching for entire albums or projects.

But most of these albums were like.. I would say possibly landmarks where I can remember, like distinctly remember, it changing the way I looked at a certain genre or an artist. (I tried to avoid rap, I listened to garbage rap until I discovered Lupe.)

Thanks for asking these - not sure if it’s the same person, but it makes me feel like I have a wide selection but also a reminder that I have a lot more to go out and listen to.

I came home. I didn’t want to; I was having the best day at work, making the days of kids I’d probably never talk to again, and them making mine as well. It was great. I really depend on work during times like these.

On a break, I checked my phone and I got a text from Dad that said, “Talking to [Auntie] again. Just got off the phone, it was a half hour conversation.” He’s tired of it. I know it stresses him out whenever he gets a call from her because she never has anything good to say.

So I came home.

And Dad’s already asleep.

At least I think so. His bedroom door is open and I’m too scared to look inside. I start to walk up the stairs but I notice the room downstairs has its doors closed, and it’s always usually open. I peak inside and my stepmom is sleeping in it.

/:

I connect the dots. Dad doesn’t usually sleep this early. He got overwhelmed from stress from the phone call probably.

In turn, he took the stress out on my stepmom. They probably got into an argument, and she chose to sleep downstairs.

Dad left the door open so if she chose to sleep upstairs with him, the door wouldn’t squeak open to wake him up, but more than likely, it was his way of saying sorry.

Of course, it’s all a guess. But I’ve been better at guessing as I’ve grown older, just ‘cause it’s happened so many times. I hate that my aunt drags my dad into things like this, ‘cause it leads to my stepmom and he not getting along for a little bit and I feel like I’m the cause of it all.

All ‘cause I haven’t finished my AA yet. Sigh.

Anonymous asked:

which ever you feel like youd enjoy listing the most

I’ll try to choose the ten I listen to the most (according to iTunes), I guess. In no order:

Frank Ocean | Channel Orange

Gabe Bondoc | Timing

Dumbfoundead | Take the Stares

Miguel | Kaleidoscope Dream

Justin TImberlake | both 20/20 Experience albums

Ariana Grande | Yours Truly

Kendrick Lamar | good kid, m.A.A.d. City

Nas | Illmatic (10th Anniversary)

Breezy Lovejoy | O.B.E. Vol. 1

It’s funny ‘cause I don’t feel like I listen to most of these a lot, but I think it’s ‘cause it was during a time where I didn’t have as much music and these were the mains I listened to, whereas now I just listen to a lot more than so-and-so, and I have a lot more to listen to.

cacaroach asked:

My advice for skateboarding is don't eat shit. If you do though, just get back up and ride homie. That's also a terrible metaphor. Also get a helmet, the ground hurts when you're rushing to meet it from 6 feet up.

Literally everyone I asked told me “don’t die” as if it’s funny or something.

So.. you’re saying to just kick, push, and coast?

cacaroach asked:

I was gonna cancel that order because you had asked me too. Then I saw that there was going to be an exclusive pop figure. Couldn't let you miss out on that. Hope that one actually glows in the dark

It does, I tested it in the bathroom
