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. And though this is my first Valentine’s Day in a relationship, I won’t be able to see her for another week and a half; instead, I get to see all of the … More Tapes by Indientry: February – Tell Them You Love Them // Love Is Dead Anyway

Tapes by Indientry: January – Melt Your Winter Blues Away

While January marks the beginning of a new year, it can be a difficult month. It’s cold, it’s dreary, and it’s a struggle for everyone, especially those who struggle with seasonal sadness, like me.

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

Youth In Music: How Teenage-Friendly Spaces Benefit The Columbus Music Scene

Youth In Music is a mini-series born from a desire to get my friends interested in local music. I was frustrated by the lack of access for teenagers to Columbus shows and musicians; when high schoolers did want to learn about local bands, they didn’t know where to go, and when they found a show, … More Youth In Music: How Teenage-Friendly Spaces Benefit The Columbus Music Scene
