this summer I
started a record label, became the manager of my workplace, started a band and recorded a demo, tour managed, got asked to book several tours, lived outta my backpack, booked 30 shows, got my cat to lay on my belly, put out a Sick Thoughts LP, hosted a reading, became confident in making music, signed up to finish college, faced a huge fear, learned to speak up for myself, wore shorts

"is this considered real music?"
"she sounds like a child being shot"
"do people pay to see this? i think this girl pays people to see her"
"this is the worst thing i have ever heard"
"what kind of people even listen to this?"
"people who make music like this are drug addicts"
"how can people prefer to listen to this?"
"…do people listen to this?"
"her parents must be so ashamed"
