… i was born….
(thanks mom + dad!)
…i sang coming out of the womb. i sang at my first holy communion in front of 300 people in a church when i was seven. i sang every single christmas carol ever. for everyone. my whole life. i sang karaoke + i sang at parties. around twelve years old i got into theater programs and sang in all of them. i started in the chorus + sang in choirs + groups for years + years. around my sophomore year of high school i started to get more confidence and better roles in the school plays….
….then i started playing guitar and piano and singing my own songs about love + life. i never stopped. i never gave up. not everyone liked my voice + my songs my whole life… + they still dont…i still don’t give up. i still don’t stop….
…three years ago today i moved to los angeles…
…i moved here with one suitcase, one guitar, and one big fat scary dream. i was sooo homesick. i cried every night…. but i kept singing… and writing… and waitressing and working hard…
… always. work. hard.
thank you for all your birthday wishes.
i absolutely love you.

secondstar05 asked: Are you going to record "Sad Song"? It is my favorite song from your Myspace. <3

I feel newly empowered. This feeling is practically a faint rumor of a memory to me, but it’s there, and it’s mine, and I simply cannot thank you enough.
rynlovest0ned asked: you inspire me more than words can express. jar of hearts gets me thru my sleepless nights. in may, i just got out of a 3 year relationship and didn't think i'd survive it. everyday is a battle but it's getting a little easier everyday. thank you from the bottom of my heart for saving my life everyday and i cannot wait to see the upcoming months and how HIGH you will soar. you go girl<3

wallsdown asked: how long have you quit smoking for?
since february 7th 2010. i never thought it was possible… but i kept trying + i finally stopped + haven’t looked back. :) (you can do it too!)
I had my heart broken like I truly never imagined was possible. I cannot tell you how much this song really resonated with me from the very moment you started sharing it with the world. Thank you and I am absolutely a fan! Thank you for sharing and thank you for being you. ~ Serenity
