Tapes by Indientry: February – Tell Them You Love Them // Love Is Dead Anyway

As far as Valentine’s Day and I go back, it’s been “complicated.” First, it was single teenage angst, then it was anti-consumerist frustration.

I’m not a big fan of my own birthdays – it’s just another day, after all, and I don’t love being the center of attention – but the past two years have not been the easiest, … More Something Personal: 19 Things I’ve Learned in 19 Years
