    Music Is A Part Of Me.

    I love music. I love playing guitar and writing music and listening to music and going to shows. Without any of this or music I don't think I'd still be around. Some of my favorite bands are: Pierce the Veil, Trivium, All Time Low, Fall Out Boy (the old school stuff), anything...

    The Only Happiness

    I know some people say why are you so obsessed they are just a band... I disagree the only reason I'm here is because of them otherwise I would quit a long time ago. So if you have no experience on something don't be a jackass

    More Than What It Says To Me. But What It Does FOR Me.

    I'm a musician. Always have been and I'll die being one.  Might even die when I'm playing my guitar.  And if it hadn't have been for the music in my life growing up, I wouldn't have made it. I almost didn't anyway, once in my life.  I am a child abuse survivor, and also the...

    Isnt it funny how music just soothes the soul.

    Takes every piece of dread, misery, anger, depression, or any other bad feeling away and replaces it with something good. No matter for how long, whether its just for the song length or the while day. It can save a life, just open up and listen...

    Music Saved Me

    Music is my lifeline. I listen to music constantly. Music has gotten me through the rough patches in my life by reminding me what it's like to feel alive. Music makes me think, feel, and sometimes, when its really bad, music makes me just remember to keep breathing.
