I love life.

I love my friends, I love my dog, I love my mom, I love the state and national boards I’m a member of, I love hockey, and I love college volleyball, I love food, I love music, I love children, I love being thankful for all of the blessings in my life, I love smiles, I love sunshine, I love a cool breeze, I love beer, I love making mistakes, I love wearing baseball caps, I love waking up in the morning, I love listening rather than arguing, I love that I’m just a few months away from graduating with my M.S., I love that I feel like my life is about to really begin, I love that I can’t wait to see what the future holds, I love that 2012 and 2013 are in the past, I love that 2014 is now, I love that I’m hopelessly addicted to Starbucks, I love that I feel like I love so many things that I must be forgetting something!

And there’s this girl I’m crazy about. I love that she’s in my life.

—Some Devil

One last kiss, one only,
then I’ll let you go.
Hard for you, 
I’ve fallen,
but you can’t break my fall.
I’m broken, don’t break me
when I hit the ground.

Some devil, some angel
has got me to the bones.
You said always and forever,
now I believe you baby.
You said always and forever
is such a long and lonely time.

Too drunk and still drinking,
it’s just the way I feel.
"It’s alright,"
is what you told me,
'cause what we had was so beautiful.
Feel heavy like floating
at the bottom of the sea.

You said always and forever,
now I believe you baby.
You said always and forever
is such a long and lonely time.

Some devil is stuck inside of me,
I cannot set it free.
I wish, I wish I was dead and you breathing
just so that you could know.
Some angel is stuck inside of me
but I cannot set you free.

You said always and forever,
now I believe you baby 
You said always and forever… 
Such a long and lonely time. 

Stuck inside of me…

—Addicted

Randy Houser, “Addicted”

Suzie Brown’s tribute to the fallen in Connecticut. She posted it on her Facebook with the following note:

I haven’t known what to say publicly about the Connecticut tragedy - anything I start to say seems so pathetically inadequate. I sat down yesterday and this song came out. Please know that this is just my way of processing what happened, and that I’m posting it publicly in the hopes that it might help other people process what happened as well. Or help us share our sorrow. By no means am I trying to capitalize on a PR opportunity.

Suzie is a beautiful human and I hope her voice can bring peace and understanding to those in need of healing.

Gossip "Coal to Diamonds"

I thought about it ‘til my head hurt. 
I thought about it but it only made things worse.

So I was wrong. 
What could I do? 
I knew all along. 

I’m a fool for you…
