on the power of showing up

note: I wrote this post in April of 2019 (pre-COVID). It's been sitting in my drafts for quite a while, but I think it's time for it to see the light of day. It's been helpful for me to reread over the past few months, especially as I continue to try to make an effort to write, and I hope it can be helpful to you, too. i got an invite to a writers' group a few months ago, and i had never felt like more of a fraud in my life. it had been months, if not years, since i'd felt like a writer. the proverbial well of words in my heart had dried up, it seemed, and i wasn't sure if it was ever coming back. i agreed to go out of a sense of helplessness—i'd identified as a writer ever since i could remember. if i'm not a writer, who am i?  i told myself that it was important to show up and act like a writer even when i didn't feel like one, because even though i hadn't been writing, i reassured myself, i still was a writer. but sometimes the words f

Introducin' Me {Day 24: A Movie No One Would Expect Me to Love}

This video says it all.

I liked Camp Rock 2.

The memories I have watching that movie are amazing. We watched it with our good friends' house, who turned it on right before we left. I remember begging my mom to let us stay and watch. Why? Because I'm a sucker for cotton candy-type movies, once in a while. I'm glad we stayed. I remember dancing around like crazy people at basically every song. Yes, with the Jonas Brothers.

It was the most fun dance party ever, and the Introducing Me song is one of my favorites. I mean, the idea of a guy singing a girl a song is so sweet. ;)

Yeah, was that shocking or not so much?

"Now you probably know more than you ever wanted to so be careful when you ask next time..."



  1. Wow. Okay. Wow. I seriously did NOT see that one coming. Uh, wow. Erm. Wow. Yeah. Wow.


    *wanders off in dazed shock*

  2. My little sister, my cousin and I watched it on New Year's but didn't catch the whole movie. We were really really hyper though, so that made it even more fun! I liked the first one, and what I've seen of the second one.

    Oh, and in case I missed commenting on the post with your song—amazing! You're really talented!

  3. Ha, I never saw the second one, though I actually did like the first one!!! I much prefer Demi Lovato with those bangs. (:


  4. Uh oh. Now I need to see this movie. :) That song is adorable, and thanks to the 25th anniversary of the Les Miserables musical, I love Nick Jonas. :)

    I definitely love a good "cotton candy" movie, too... recently, I have been indulging in High School Musical. <3

  5. Oh yeah, and I actually do kinda like Nick J's voice. *nervous giggle*

  6. I love that song!! I remember watching Camp Rock 2 when I had cold sores in my eyes and I couldn't even see anything in the competition part! :)

    Actually, that's not too unexpected. I don't know what I wouldn't have expected from you... probably a really intense drama or something :)

  7. Haha! You were the only person who actually got the Monsters Inc./Dr. Quinn comic:) Had you ever noticed that they had the same names before?

  8. Ah! I don't know how I missed seeing this post!
    Anyways, I'm not much of a Camp Rock person, but that song was simply the most adorable thing EVER! I loved it so much :D
    And thank YOU for all your sweet comments, girl! They definitely make my day happier ;)
