The L Word

Remember that song I put up, promising there would be a video coming up? Well, it's been a few months, but it's finally done!

So, without further ado, here it is. If you're curious about the lyrics, I've posted them in the description box on the YouTube page where you can easily view them:

Love it, hate it? Let me know...I love reading your opinions and comments. They're so so very helpful, and there's nothing more appreciated than constructive criticism when trying to improve or just try something new in song-writing. Sometimes I get it right, sometimes I get it wrong...your opinions play a big role in that process of trial and error.

On the subject of music, my boyfriend recently showed me a song that has got me absolutely HOOKED. It's called "I Love It" by Icano Pop, a newer band that has amazing dance music. Their "Top Rated" and "Ready for the Weekend" songs are also great for workout playlists, or just rocking out in your bedroom with a hairbrush. Whatever your drive for listening to music, they're definitely worth checking out.

On the subject of things involving the L Word, it's that time of the year again....You know, the one in elementary school when you would cut out hearts and spend hours writing friends' names on cards, all the while secretly praying that taping a heart-shaped candy on there wouldn't be too "riskée" or make someone think you actually liked them (because God knows that shit SO did not happen). A time of brown paper bags or just blushing if you were the crush of that boy that, year after year, always gave the same girl a rose....

Or, in High-School, just not going to school because you were "too sick" (hey, getting ready for that chocolate binge was hard work).

That's right, Valentine's Day is almost upon us. And for the first time, my friends and I are faced with a dilemma entirely out of the ordinary...

not being single. 

I know, I was shocked when I found myself in this situation, too. See, the problem is that we're no longer faced by the fact that we don't have boyfriends (that was nothing a good "let's-all-cry-at-our-lives-and-why-not-add-in-the-human-condition-in-there-too movie and chocolate binge couldn't fix)...we are now panicking over the fact that we DON'T KNOW WHAT THE HELL IS GOING TO HAPPEN.

We can't be like in High-school and pretend it doesn't exist, press the "skip" button like that Click remote. We can't pull out brown paper bags because....well, that'd just be weird. We can't pop open a bottle of wine because alcohol doesn't solve problems, folks. No, we sit here and wonder what they're going to do or if it's us that have to plan something or...

You know what, I think I'm just going to eat a chocolate. As my friend would say "peace out".


  1. Without going on too much of a tangent about how OMG you can really sing and make people feel nice things and be happy about the world when they hear you and why are you not on iTunes because I'd love to have that on my iPod, I'm going to say I really enjoyed that. I think you got it right.

    Icona Pop is excellent! I just went and bought Ready For the Weekend :)

    Good luck with the Valentine's Day dilemma - I'm interested to hear how it'll turn out! xxx

    1. Thank you Kori...You are so incredibly sweet! :)

      I knowww, they're such good workout music. Glad you can enjoy it too :) I'll be posting a full workout playlist soon, so maybe you'll find some other tracks you'll like in there too.

      Keep ya posted. ♥

  2. Erika. what are you saying. Alcohol may not solve problems, but chocolate does! ;)

    seriously though, good luck with the whole situation- can't wait to hear how it goes :)

    1. Hahaha, totally thought you were gonna say alcohol does for one second there (disaster avoided: *ouf*). But yesss...chocolate is the bomb. ;) ♥

      Thanks! We'll see what happens. Got an early package in the mail's from my parents, but I just want to open it!

  3. Attends Érika...Tu recevras un petit cadeau imprévu par le courrier...Si Postes Canada ne le détruit, vole, vandalise, ouvre, mange, PAS! Joyeuse St-Valentin!

    1. HAHA, ah que j'vous aimes ♥ Je les recu aujourd' n'avait même pas de petite bosse sur le paquet! (déception totale, ahaha).

      Joyeuse St-Valentin à vous autres aussi! xox

  4. But alcohol DOES solve some problems, at least those related to the short term memory.

  5. Hahaha, that's beautiful! - I was actually wondering the same thing as I wrote that.

    I've been following your blog for a bit, your writing is wonderful ♥
