“Beyond the shadows, and the rain Beyond the darkness, beyond the pain You know in your heart there’s no way I push through Take a walk with me darling Beyond the blues Take a walk with me darling Beyond the blues “
I find it interesting that you all just assumed that I’m in London. I’m actually in Nottingham, and I’m so happy that I made the decision to study at this university in particular. The atmosphere and the people here are wonderful, and the city center is so much fun. I do plan to visit London, but for now I’m just a bit north of it. But in any case, thank you all for your well-wishes for my travels :)
I arrived in England at 7:30 in the morning, local time, on Tuesday. I had almost missed my connection in Detroit, I couldn’t get my phone to work, and my luggage was lost. But now here I am, six days later, phone in hand and luggage unpacked. I’ve met some fantastic people, signed up for classes, and had my first legal drink. The fact that I’m only going to be here for three months is so upsetting because I know that this will be one of the greatest experiences I’ve had to date. But, it is what it is. For now, I’m just going to enjoy myself. This is England.
A little over a year ago I became active again on hitRECord (after a giant hiatus because of schoolwork) and I found this photo taken by the lovely Lexy Hulme. It inspired me to write a little poem. Then today I woke up to the wonderful realization of being REmixed by two fantastically talented ladies. Fleurdelys RECorded this beautiful piano track inspired by my poem, and then my dear friend Pammy layered her voice over it.
It is such an honour to be REmixed in any way, and it is even more incredible when your original RECord becomes something you never even dreamed it could be. I am so thankful to be collaborating with such sensational people, and I love you all dearly <3
