"Have you heard of the band called The Weeks? They're from Mississippi and they come play at my school, Mississippi State, all the time. I don't know if they're your type of music, but I thought you might appreciate that they're from Mississippi and stick so close to their ties there. You should check them out! A few of my favorite songs are Buttons, Mississippi Rain, and Hold It Kid (Your Heart Just Skipped a Beat). Let me know what you think!"
I have not heard of them, but i’ll check them out. And posting this for everyone else to check out too :) While we’re repping some local Mississippi bands, you should check out The Red Thangs. They’re amazing and just released their first album on iTunes :)
Well y’all it’s been a little over a year since I took that one way ticket from California to Mississippi. I don’t regret it at all and I never will. If anything I’ve found that I can live on my own and not die or set a house on fire, and I have found a boy that I love with all I have, plus I’m getting an education which is great too.
This town though, will eat you alive. This isn’t “Mississippi”…this is Oxford. This is another College town with lots of people from out of state with a lot of money. I mean of course it is IN Mississippi, and I’ve met many people who have lived here all their lives. But what I’m getting at is that even in the one year that I’ve been here it’s changed. Also most the college kids here suck. All the “frats and srats” are annoying past the first few months (if you’re not in one) and there’s honestly just some pretty rude people here. Of course there’s rude people everywhere but it’s just maximized because there are many rich kids here to drink and have fun and get D’s because those get Degrees. I DONT KNOW MAN.
The beauty of the town, the sky, the trees, everything, is something that I’ll never comprehend. In a good way! There’s just so much green, and so much sun. And when it rains it feels like it’s supposed to, you know?
I’m graduating next December (fingers crossed) and I know I’m not going to stay here. I think I need to move somewhere just as beautiful and inexpensive but I need somewhere more progressive.
Anyways that’s my update <3
