RADVENT: December Five — Rocking Out

December 5

Write down the soundtrack of your year so far. Play it for someone who loves you.

OHHH I’m so excited about this, because this has been QUITE the year for music. Living in LA means I spend a lot of time in the car commuting. The upside of this is that I get lots of time to listen to awesome ridiculous music.

First of all, this song makes the top of my list because as ridiculous as this sounds, it has the ability to make to cry almost ANYTIME I hear it.

Dear Coco,

RADVENT: December One — Remembering

Well, it’s been a while. Thanks to a combination of being way to freakin’ busy plus the worst writer’s block evar I’ve taken an unexpected hiatus. But now I’m ready to jump on the bandwagon and embark on Princess Lastertron’s Radvent Project. (I’m a little behind, please excuse while I catch up.)


What were you doing five years ago today? As the holiday season began? Where were you? Who were you with? What did you want? What did you have?

Woah boy, where do I begin? In 2005 I was seventeen and about half-way through my senior year of high school. I was literally having the time of my life.
