music city series: downtown update

This past weekend, Mayor John Cooper lifted the mask mandate for outdoor settings, while still recommending them when social distancing isn’t possible. As I walked downtown on Monday afternoon, I was happy to see that approximately half the downtown patrons were still wearing masks on the streets. Masks still have to be worn inside restaurantsContinue reading “music city series: downtown update”

new music friday: Taylor Swift

The middle schooler deep inside me has never been more excited for an album release. Taylor Swift has finally released Fearless (Taylor’s Version) with six brand new songs, “From The Vault.” I’ve been waiting for this since the day she threatened to re-record all of her albums from her Big Machine contract. All the lyricsContinue reading “new music friday: Taylor Swift”

i’m back

Wow! It’s been a little while since I posted, but I’m back at it again. In my post starting off the year, I talked about taking more time for myself and posting more, but that isn’t how these past few months worked out. I’ve been working, trying to grow my confidence, and figuring out howContinue reading “i’m back”

what will 2021 bring?

Like many others, as I counted down, “10, 9, 8, 7,…” to 2020, I thought the new decade was going to bring new experiences and happiness. Unfortunately, that was not the case. I went through a tornado, a global pandemic, changing careers, facing many mental health issues, physical health issues, and financial struggles. I knowContinue reading “what will 2021 bring?”

music city series: Old Glory

Before Halloween, some of my girlfriends and I tried out Old Glory, which is a one-of-a-kind bar here in Nashville. Never did I expect to walk into a dungeon-like room and find music, drinks, and laughter. The history behind the space is unique. With a smokestack standing tall, Old Glory sits in the former boilerContinue reading “music city series: Old Glory”

music city series: Stateside Kitchen

Earlier this month, we celebrated my roommate for her 22nd birthday. Because of COVID-19 and the current restrictions set in Nashville, we decided to do a girl’s dinner at Stateside Kitchen in the Dream Hotel. After enjoying a few drinks and a meal, we stopped to take a few pictures at ”The Climax” neon lightContinue reading “music city series: Stateside Kitchen”

music city series: Burger Republic

About a month ago, my grandparents were able to take a trip from North Carolina to visit me here in Nashville. Whenever they come to town, we try to find the best food to eat. Last year when they visited, we ate at one of my favorite burger joints, Burger Republic, and this year weContinue reading “music city series: Burger Republic”

new music friday: Kelsea Ballerini

When Kelsea Ballerini released her self-titled album, Kelsea, in March, I didn’t listen to the whole album. With her latest release, Ballerini, I feel more compelled to listen to her stories. In my opinion, Kelsea was a overly produced, pop leaning album, while Ballerini shows all the same songs in a different, light-hearted way. IContinue reading “new music friday: Kelsea Ballerini”

music city series: Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams

Although Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams is not based out of Nashville, it has been a staple to my experience in Nashville. Before I moved to Nashville for college, my family and I went to Jeni’s and I fell in love with their Milkiest Chocolate flavor. I try to stay away from ice cream as muchContinue reading “music city series: Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams”
