Through the dark nights, two hours ’til sunrise

Girly, folksy, probably-featured-on-a-popular-teen-TV-show-at-some-point song again. DEAL WITH IT. I am in NO MOOD for your judgment, Internet.

Silence Worth Breaking

I was going through my old files when I found a 12-year-old recording of a 12-year-old kid playing this song, so…

“Song for George [Live]”

“Valentine”

Stairwells

For the record, I think Valentine’s Day is just silly — I just found myself with a catchy upbeat melody in my head.

This just happens to be my first single Valentine’s Day in… holy crap, like, 7 years? Maybe 8? I guess I’m bad at being single this time of year. As it turns out, I’m enjoying it. A lot of that probably has to do with the fact that I don’t hang around many people who really care about February 14th (not even couples), but I also like to remember that tomorrow is National Discount Chocolate Day. THAT is a good reason to celebrate.

So… tonight, I don’t have to do anything particularly Valentine’s-y. I’ve been invited over for free food, so that’s a plus. Then, a couple drinks and just some minor festivities (okay, honestly I am a little excited about those), and I get to go to bed. Just have to make sure I set my alarm so I can get that sweet, sweet chocolate before it’s all gone…

In the day or the night, in the dark or the light
