Some of my best friends are moving tomorrow and it kills me. Benjamin and Madilyn have become just like family. It’s funny because I have known them since freshman year of college but we literally didn’t start hanging out until a year ago. It is such a bittersweet time. I’m sad to see them go and so badly wish they could stay, but I am so excited for them to chase their dreams and now I have an excuse to go to Florida. If there is anything I think people should know about this family is 1. August. To put it simply he is an angel child. and 2. Benj and Mads are some of the most hospitable people I have ever met. I’ve never felt more welcomed in my life. I will miss our 5 hour weekly discussions about anything and everythingggg but I know that we have many more to come. Ugh, change is hard but life would be boring if nothing ever changed!! So here is to the Hastoglis Fam heading to florida!! You’re gonna do amazing!!! I love y’all so much!
Happy Birthday to this girl! I hope you get all the Slim Jim’s you deserve! I love you so much!!!
My favorite thing is when the sunshines while it rains.

One large lemonade, please.
This is a song called “dreams”. I am dreamer and I love to think up possibilities and options for my life. As I’ve grown up I’ve seen how I am really the only one between me and my “dreams” (God honoring dreams of course). I am continually learning to allow myself freedom to follow dreams, to have patience when dreams need to be saved for another time or to just let dreams die that may be ill intentioned. It’s a work in process... me not the song.
S/o to @anneliz24 to making my carnival dreams come true!
The truck had a flat tire so that was kind of a bummer.
Ever since I was in 7th grade music was always what I wanted to do and in March on my 23rd birthday I kept saying to myself “what do I want to do?” and the answer kept being music. I have run from music in the past because I have chosen to believe that I don’t have a “big” enough voice and really it was always based in some sort of fear and need for control.
God has been teaching me that running away from the things we deeply feel called to just because we are afraid is actually disobedience. I think of all the people in the Bible who knew what they had to do and were terrified but still chose to have faith and trust in Him. All I know is that trying to control my own destiny isn’t worth the anxiety and effort. I’ve also prayed for clarity but God for some reason likes to give me free will and not a blueprint or map for my life.
Long story short, I have decided to commit my time and energy to writing music, my first love. I will be sharing more with all of you in the future! In the meantime please enjoy this original called “you’ll get my heart”.
