I have my own particular sorrows, loves, delights; and you have yours. But sorrow, gladness, yearning, hope, love, belong to all of us, in all times and in all places. Music is the only means whereby we feel these emotions in their universality. I like to donate blood. I play with animal crackers when I eat them. I dig music. I graduated from the University of Illinois in May 2011, then proceeded to have the best summer of my life. Learned a lot about what I need to do next and I'm so thankful for everyone and everything in my life that has helped me along this journey.
