A Play on Relationships: parts 1 & 2

I was taking a stroll through YouTube when I found my friend's videos of the play I wrote last semester, "A Play On Relationships." I should have shared it with you guys months ago! It completely slipped my mind!

So, here it is: in two parts.

Feel free to comment... and like... and share. :]



Life changes, but it also stays the same.


It's a quiet Monday afternoon, I'm sitting at my computer amongst piles of used tissue, glasses of water & old iced tea bottles and clothes and unfolded laundry strewn about my bedroom...

What a pretty picture.

Spring break is over. I wouldn't be able to tell if it weren't for the return of cloudy weather, lack of facebook status' and quiet unease that surrounds me now. I'm at home, on a school day, because I am sick. Again. I know, it ain't right. It's not a sickness like the one I just previously experienced (you know, the one from HELL), just a ferociously runny nose paired with perpetual sneezing. Compared to what I went through about a month ago, it's quite lovely. Instead of being bitter, I'm thankful.

I'll be better before you know it. I'm planning on returning to my scholastic endeavors tomorrow. And no, I don't know why I'm so speaking so indulgently formal right now. You'll just have to go with it.


I'm really starting to feel like I'm graduating this year. The reality of it is actually beginning to kick in. All the graduation forms that need to be filled out, the preparations for the grad song (Not Giving In, which we're auditioning next Wednesday), prom dress shopping. That's right, my cousin, my mum and I finally did the deed. For me, it only took one store, one saleslady, and the first dress I tried on to pick mine. That may not sound smart, but I knew exactly what I was looking for. And I found it for a ridiculously awesome price in my size on the sale rack as a part of a sample sale in the colour I wanted, in the style I like- everything. It's perfect. :]

Yeah, things are getting serious. It's all really happening. And like I said, I can actually feel it now. It feels real- crazy, but real. :P

I've got about two and a half months of high school left and sure, a lot will change, but I think a lot will be the same- but better. For me, graduation means more time for me to do what I want, and that's music. I'll be playing like nobody's business. I'll have more time and energy to dedicate to everything revolving around that. And take my word for it, there's a lot. Being an artist; a musician and being in charge of that is running your own business. My craft is my business. And when I graduate I'll be able to put everything into that.

I'm excited. :) It's exciting! All the possibilities... Heck, I'm looking forward to this summer! ^^ It's my favorite!

I'm looking forward to what's to come. I'm looking forward to my last days of school with my friends, the graduation ceremony, prom, sunny weather, recording, experimenting, meeting new people, traveling... the list goes on and it's constantly expanding.

And I'm looking forward to sharing it with you, my loyal blog readers. :-) I've been blogging for... over two years now? And I don't plan on stopping. I've been blogging less partly because I'm writing in a journal everyday and partly because I can be lazy, but this is something that's good and something that I want to keep going.

I'm not going to promise that to you, or guarantee that I'll keep doing so, because things constantly change. But this is certainly a good thing I have going and like my music, my best friends and family, blogging is something I've naturally stuck with over the years, over periods of change- it's helped get me through those times; those changes. And that is so valuable to me.

So, thanks for being apart of something so great. :) Let's keep it going!

Will write soon!

Much love & appreciation,

All the little things

"Not gonna lie or exaggerate. I'm SUPER STOKED on life right now. All is SO well. :) I want to send thanks to everything & everyone in it <3"

Life is grand. I'm relishing in it.

I know that things change inevitably, for the worse and for the better, so every time I hit a sweet spot I like to really recognize and enjoy it. I like to feel it. A book I read when I was younger said, "Being happy isn't having everything in your life be perfect. Maybe it's about stringing together all the little things- making those count for more than the bad stuff."

All the little things in my life are making me very happy, and that's really all that matters. That's really all I can ask for.

I want to blog more often. So, stay posted. I want to be seeing a lot more of you. :)

Thanks for listening xx k

Soaking up Spring

Today was kind of... bliss.

Went downtown with two of my favorite people, had lunch at one of our favorite restaurants, frolicked in one of my favorite places to be...

Couldn't really ask for more.

Spring has officially sprung!

It's officially, finally SPRING BREAK.

:) *sigh of relief*

I'm not saying I dislike school that much, but realizing that I can now get up when I feel like it, do whatever I want and hopefully- if we're all really lucky- be apart of sunnier, warmer, nicer weather is an amazing feeling.

"Oh, what a feeling it is," she says while reclining back in a big comfy chair.


I have a few things in mind for my five days of. Now, let's see if I can make something of them.

Singing off,

Seems Like Yesterday

I was listening to old recordings of mine, when I found a song I wrote years ago called "Seems Like Yesterday." It's another tune I relate to again. Possibly, even more than when I wrote it.


It seems like yesterday
that we were running around, not caring about anything
Not a care in the world to worry about
just drowning it out and singing to this song

I don't think that I can deal with that
Saying goodbye to all the friends I've had

Let it rain
Wash my memory away
Pounding it down, with the sound
I'm okay
Just need a lobotomy,
cause I can't deal with the feelings that I feel
Today's another day where time will not stand still
But I'm okay, if you ask me

Do you remember
how we would find anything, do anything cause we were bored?
But not anymore
How long has it been since I've seen you?
I've been missing those times, singing these rhymes without you
and wishing my wishes would come true

And I don't think that I can deal with that
Saying goodbye to all the times we've had

Let it rain
Wash my memory away
Pounding it down, with the sound
I'm okay
Just need a lobotomy,
cause I can't deal with the feelings that I feel
Today's another day where time will not stand still
But I'm okay, if you ask me

They say, they say it's just a phase
Guess I'll be living it for the rest of these days
And they say, they say it just won't last
But you see, I'm not giving in
I won't forget my past

I'll try to make it last, try to make it last
And if I can't...

Let it rain, let it rain...

Today's another day where time will not stand still
But I'm okay, if you ask me

Reflecting (Sarah McLachlan concert, long weekend)


I haven't posted about seeing Sarah McLachlan yet, so here is that very post!

It was fantabulous. It was beautiful. It was meaningful and inspiring... It was wondrous! ^^

I'm now fully equipped with a new songbook (as seen above) and a bit more drive and reinforcement that music is what I want to do for a very, very, very long time.


It's Friday, 11:04 AM and I'm not in school. Thanks to a Pro-D Day we all have the day off. LONG WEEKEND, YESSSSS!

I have some things to do and some events to attend, so I'm very thankful for the extra day- and a half actually.

Hm. I don't really have much to say for myself right now. I could talk about how I've been in a weird... state.. for a little bit, but I'm sure that's boring. I'm just.. excited for what's to come.. I think. I'm weird and confused lately. Oh dear.

I'm gonna call it a day- according to my blog. Oh lord.

Good bye.

(Don't worry, I'm okay. I just can't seem to speak properly right now).

You're a touchy subject
I used to know it all
Now I don't know where we stand

You used to fit inside my hand
Now you're leaking through my fingers
I grasp at every bit I can
Your pull on me still lingers

I want to hold on to everything.

sun run fun
sky high try
true you glue
see be free

I don't want the facts, I want you
I don't want the truth, I want you to lie to me

I would tell you why I try
But it's like falling without closing my eyes

I wish I could run from my thoughts
Cause sometimes they turn out to be too much
I'd run far away to a place they couldn't find
There I'd be safe from my mind

If I am lost
could you be found?
A gravel road
to solid ground

If love is blind,
how do we see
through puzzles and
uncharted territory?
