Hello! I don’t really have a favourite. I have a lot of favourite songs, but they are from a lot of different artists. That being said, I like Daughter, Ally Rhodes, Rae Morris, The Boxer Rebellion, Cinephile and Chelsea Wolfe are some I like! :)

Hi guys, my name is Kelsey Snowdon! This is an original song that I wrote and recorded. It would mean the world if you could listen to it, and reblog it if you like it!

Thank you so much!

thecailin reblogged your post: This quote has been popping up a lot …

My entire post was about how this quote can have damaging connotations. Please don’t reblog it without the text, as I do not want my post shared like this :( 

I was hoping it would be a reminder to people that they are never obligated to reciprocate love. Not tell people that they have to.

This quote has been popping up a lot lately. Despite how at a first glance this conveys only the best intentions, I can’t help but be uncomfortable with it. If you interpret this to only apply in scenarios where feelings are entirely mutual, then maybe it’s fine. However, When I read it, I only see the very risky attitude it is encouraging. 
Things like this sound beautiful on paper. But when you actually put them into the real world, they aren’t always good. To me this is saying that you should pay attention to and actively engage with people who love you because if they care, then you owe it to them. And here’s the thing. I don’t care how much someone loves you, cares about you or misses you. You are never obligated to love or keep someone in your life just because they want you.

It is nice to be loved, and it is important to cherish the relationships you have. If you care about someone, you better make sure they know, and definitely don’t ignore your mom even if she bugs you. But you are never obligated to reciprocate feelings and put effort into having someone in your life just because they have feelings for you. Furthermore, there are plenty of relationships in which someone can love you yet still be entirely bad for you, whether that be in terms of dating, friendship or family. 
Don’t let a feeling of obligation to return love hold you back, and don’t keep people who are not supporting you, inspiring you or allowing you to grow. There’s always a balance.

Pretty in Pastel

While we all appreciate the power of all black attire, right now, pastels are finding their way into stores. If you are like me and live in a rather dull area when it comes to fashion, with everyone wearing dark colours, pastels and bright items really stand out. And they definitely add a little happiness when winter comes around!

For Me University and Passion Don’t Mix

I’m not here to tell you that universities are here to mass produce mindless drones with bachelor’s degrees that get them moderately okay office jobs. I don’t believe that that is the case at all. In fact, until this very moment, I would have argued that it does just the opposite. It teaches you how to think and exposes you to knowledge and education in a very eye-opening way. Nonetheless, something about me has changed since I first started my degree.

DIY Faux Polaroids: 

Now, let me say up front that this is a pretty obvious DIY. It’s one of the easiest crafts I’ve ever done, and looking back, I feel like I should have realized you could do this earlier. It just never occurred to me. Nonetheless, here is how I made my own faux polaroids for room decor, and more!
