Historical Oracle

I'm an Environmental Archaeology student in Philadelphia with a fondness of impromptu adventures.

I’m just going to keep painting the ocean

Over and over

Until I can stand by it again

And get all of this weight off my shoulders. 

My little sister has become the kind of girl who needs constant male validation, to the point where she compromises herself for guys who clearly have no real interest in her.  It’s like she feels like she has no worth unless some guy is into her. I don’t know what to do.  I know a lot of girls like this, and have tried to cut them out because it’s fucking pathetic, but she’s my sister and I have to love her. If anyone has any advice, please let me know. 

I feel like being a musician, or being with a musician, is tough because we always fall in love, but are constantly looking over our shoulder for something better. I’ve always been like that. I would meet someone, become completely infatuated with them, then meet someone else who was cooler, smarter, better looking, or whatever, and lose pretty much all romantic interest in whoever I was dating. Literally every musician I know is like that. If you had told me two years ago that I’d be moving in with a boyfriend, I never would have believed you. And I know that he feels the same way. But this time around, I honestly feel like there is nobody out there that’s better for me. And the fact that he’s as excited about the move as I am, makes me so incredibly happy. To take from what he said to me a few weeks ago, you date a lot of people, and when things don’t work out with them, its because they aren’t the one you’re looking for. And he’s right, everyone has that one person out there who is gonna make them the best version of themselves. I can’t wait to move in with this guy.

My new song, “Barrens”. It’s just me on this, and it’s not great, but hopefully it’ll be full band soon. 

So here’s my advice: Study broadly and without fear. Learn a language if you can, because that will make your life more interesting. Read a little bit every day. But more importantly, surround yourself with people who you like and make cool stuff with them. In the end, what you do isn’t going to be nearly as interesting or important as who you do it with.

I didn’t take this, but I don’t think any image has ever made me miss the stars so much. As much as I love the city, being able to see four stars tops from my apartment is a little heartbreaking.

Missing Israel. This always reminded me of the movie “Hook.” In Eilat, 2009.
