How long have you been singing? what kind of training do you have? You are breathtakingly talented.
well when i was itty bitty my mother noticed that i would harmonize with music i hear on the radio and such so she and my grandmother got me my first voice teacher when i was 4. I’ve been training ever since.
the kind of training i have is mostly classical and some musical theater, but i explore many other genres away from my lessons. I think it’s good to have a classical base because then you have good enough technique to sing anything well.
and thank you very much for the complement :) it’s so nice to hear you tell me that my life’s work is breathtakingly talented.
I like Valentines day
I’ve never been one of those people that got mopey because they didn’t have a valentine of their very own, despite the fact that I’ve never had one.
I like how happy everyone is and that the whole world is colour coordinated and that there is SO MUCH FUCKING CANDY UGH! and i like those gross candy hearts.
we all know what I’m talking about! Those nauseating pastel hearts with cryptic and occasionally romantic sayings on them such as “Hey babe”, “Say yes”, and “Call me”.
Well i actually quite like them.
not because i think they taste good!
they really don’t (except for the weird sour ones that you can find here and there, they’re like the updated version of sweetheart), but it’s an unpleasant taste i have every year.
it’s a nostalgic taste for me!
it reminds me of one of my favorite times of year because that’s the only time you can get them.
Well one day I was complaining to my boyfriend, Scott. For the first time since i could i remember i had gone a whole valentine season without a single sweetheart passing my lips. I’d just realized it and it made me feel like i missed something, like valentines day didn’t really happen for me.
and the sad part is that i have to wait until next year to get more of them, meaning that a whole valentines day slipped through my fingers leaving me traditionless and sad!
Prom happened two days ago and i of course brought Scott with me, i was feeling sort of bummed because he didn’t get me a corsage (and i knew he wouldn’t, but the bummed feeling came when i saw everyone’s really pretty corsages and i got a little jelly). We all met up at a house and then went out to eat- Hawthorne food carts, cause we classy Mothafuckas!
we were all eating and talking when Scott pulled out his bag and told me that my surprise was inside.
When i opened it I found a brightly coloured box shaped like a purse with a little ribbon for a handle. There was a heart cut-out on the front revealing the purse’s contents to be sweethearts!
I got my candy and it showed that Scott really listens to what i say and tries to make me happy, which is one of the best qualities of our relationship i think. We care, listen, and try to fix or help whatever may need fixing or helping for the other person.
As nice as a big flower bracelet is, I’m pretty ok with my cheap, disgusting candy gift :)
I’m really ok with him too.
first off, I’d like to say I’m sorry.
I haven’t been giving you all the love and affection you have grown accustomed to and I know it’s been rough. I could come up with all sorts of excuses about how busy I’ve been (and all of them would be true), but I’m just gonna come out with it. I respect you, oh tumblr of mine, and i don’t want to beat around the bush anymore.
Tumblr, the truth is that i don’t need you anymore.
The first blogs I saw were my friend’s and they were basically a place to tell everyone about how you feel without TELLING someone how you feel.
that seemed like a great idea! you have a place to put all your feels without having to say any of them out loud.
and that was really helpful for me for a long time (about 3 years actually), but over time It became a place for me to put all my feels and then not actually DO anything with them or try to fix them. AND it became a place for me to communicate with people when either of us were too scared to actually talk to each other.
And that’s fine! sometimes you’re scared to talk to people, so write about it on your blog KNOWING they’ll see it and that gets the whole thing going.
I’m not putting it down at all tumblr, but that’s not what i need anymore.
When i have feels i try and feel them and actively try and work them out now instead of shoving them on the internet where you can only see them.
The people in my life that wouldn’t talk to me or that i couldn’t talk to except when we talked about each other through our blogs aren’t in my life anymore. And it’s sad. I wish things could have worked with the few that there were, but my life is in a better place now where i”m surrounded by people i can talk to.
And sure, there is other stuff than just talking about how you feel, but those were always sort of secondary. Even my photography blog doesnt get love anymore because i”m no longer regularly on here trying to portray how i feel with songs and gifs.
Tumblr, I’m really worried you’ll take this negatively. i SO don’t want that. Blogs are so great and I think everyone should have one at some point, but i find that that point for me is mostly over. It might come back again! When i go to college and make no friends or something then maybe I’ll need a cozy internet place to have friends again, but dear Tumblr for now I’m focusing more on the outside world (it’s better for my eyes anyway).
I’m not going to Delete you, i put some serious effort into making you as much of a home as a web page can be, but I don’t want you ringing your hands and waiting around for me anymore. Just be glad for the times I do come spend time with you and move on to other things when I’m away.
thank you for understanding Tumblr
Love, Bailey Nicole Snelgrove
