Music theory and its interesting connection to my life!
For my online Music Theory course, I was asked a series of questions about my "personal soundtrack". One of the questions was something along the lines of, "please pick one song to identify with and explain why."  For some,...

Read this. Then read THAT!
As you might have noticed in one of my last posts from February (Interval), I read The Fault In Our Stars by John Green. And it totally lived up to its hype; a beautiful but heartbreaking story of t...

The End of Marching Band, 2013-2014
This marching band season at Neuqua was truly amazing. I don't think I've worked with a group of more talented and dedicated people in a long time (besides the time I did North Central College Summer Theatre. That's a whole different story).  Our show this ...

Spring break, y'all!!!
So, this spring break, like the ones I have had for the past six years, I have spent it here, at home, in freezing Naperville. But no matter; it's been pretty fun! My family celebrated my dad's birthd...

This imagine is for +Meghan Gorman! 
Imagine...you and your boyfriend Niall were heading out to another awards show and you two were excited for your big night ahead of you. You had decided to wear the dress you had worn for your friend's wedding about two months ago and some new jewelry and cute shoes! The dress was a deep purple satin, strapless, and with a sweetheart neckline. It was also one of Niall's favorite dresses that you wear; he thought it brought out your eye color and made your hair shine. "Please wear it more often," he would beg to you with puppy dog eyes and a stuck out lip. You would laugh and tell him that your other dresses would get lonely not being worn and he would laugh along with you too. 
You walked out of your shared bathroom, smoothing out your dress and filling up your clutch and felt your hands being taken away from your lip gloss and phone and being snatched up into Niall's hands where he placed one hand on your waist and one in your hand and started to twirl and dip and dance with you around your apartment. You laughed loudly and uncontrollably. "Niall! What do you think you're doing!" Instead of answering you, he leaned into you and sang, in a pitch perfect voice, "As long as I've got my suit and tie, I'mma leave it all on the floor tonight, and you got fixed up to the nines, let me show you a few things!" You laughed and your clumsy partner waltz turned into a swing dance. He continued to sing to you, never leaving your eyes: "All dressed up in black and white, and you're dressed in that dress I like, love is swinging in the air tonight, let me show you a few things!" You two laughed again and stopped dancing and looked at yourselves in the hallway mirror, your hands clasped tightly together and at your shoulder level, your forehead pressed to his cheek. You leaned back to look at him. "We do cut a very sharp figure together." You looked yourself up and down and at him, dressed in a black suit, white shirt, and a black skinny tie. You really loved it when he dressed like that. He brushed your bangs back from your forehead to look into your eyes. "Sharp or not, you always look beautiful." You hugged him tightly and smiled into his shoulder. "Thanks, Ni." He kissed your temple. "Always."
