[FIRST IMPRESSIONS] Kehlani - It Was Good Until It Wasn’t
2020.05.09 17:37 TheRoyalGodfrey [FIRST IMPRESSIONS] Kehlani - It Was Good Until It Wasn’t
It Was Good Until It Wasn't is the second studio album by American singer and songwriter Kehlani. It was released on May 8, 2020, by Atlantic Records. It is her first project since her 2019 mixtape While We Wait and first full-length record since her 2017 debut studio album SweetSexySavage.
The singles "Toxic", "Everybody Business" and "F&MU" preceded the album's release being released on March 12, April 16 and April 30, 2020, respectively. All singles had accompanying music videos that were shot at the singer's home due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Background In honor of her 25th birthday, Kehlani announced the title and release date of her second studio album. She subsequently shared the album's artwork throughout her social media, which finds her peaking over a wall in her garden while holding a water hose. Shortly prior to this, Kehlani signed a worldwide publishing deal with Pulse Music Group which includes her entire music catalog in addition to future works with Pulse's Vice President of A&R citing that, "Her talent both as an artist and songwriter is undeniable and seeing her career skyrocket in such a short time is incredibly impressive. We can't wait to get to work and to be a part of her team in this next stage of her career".
In early 2020, Kehlani had a guest appearance on Justin Bieber's fifth studio album Changes on the song "Get Me". She also featured on Megan Thee Stallion's third extended play, Suga. After much anticipation, Kehlani took to her Twitter to announce her "new album is done" and called it her "best work yet". In addition to the album's release, Kehlani also released a handful of singles, including a collaboration featuring singer Keyshia Cole titled "All Me". A duet with rapper YG, who Kehlani also had a relationship with, titled "Konclusions" was released on Valentine's Day 2020 along with a music video. Just three days after their collaboration, the singer responded with a song titled "Valentine's Day (Shameful)" on which she confirmed their break up. The song was released on Soundcloud and was released on additional streaming services later on.

Popheads Top 5 Bubbling Under Chart January 6, 2020 Yes, we are starting a brand new section of the chart post this week! We’ve had a lot of charts where the entire top 50 is just full of albums by the main pop girls for popheads and blocks a lot of singles from lesser known artists. So, this section has been created to put a spotlight on songs that are just under the top 50. However, this is not gonna be “chart” focused and instead is gonna try to encourage other people to listen to other songs and list some information so people can find some songs they like. The bubbling under is calculated by taking the highest songs underneath the top 50 that haven’t charted on the top 50 before. It’s a rather simple formula, but effective.
Here's the current list of people signed up for the charts! If you'd like to sign up, you can sign up here!
|Artist ||Song ||Genre |
|Don Toliver ||Had Enough (feat. Quavo & Offset) ||Hip-Hop |
|100 gecs ||745 sticky ||Hip-Hop/PC Music |
|Bring Me The Horizon ||¿ (feat. Halsey) ||EDM |
|Kehlani ||All Me (feat. Keyshia Cole) ||R&B |
|Ariana Grande ||goodnight n go - Live ||Live Pop/R&B |
The tracking dates for the next weekly chart is January 2, 11:00 PM GMT - January 9, 10:59 AM GMT and results come out the next Monday, January 13. As for the monthly album chart, the next tracking dates are January 1 12:00 AM GMT – January 31 11:59 PM GMT, and results come out on February 3.
How The Chart Works: These charts are created based on how frequently each song appears in the top 10 songs/albums for all of the users signed up for the chart. If the song or album occupies that user's #1 spot in their individual chart, it receives 15 points, then 14 points for #2, so on and so forth until 6 points for #10. If there is a tie, which is a common occurrence, then the number of points is averaged across those positions, e.g. if two songs are tied for #1, both will receive 14.5 points. Oftentimes there will be multiple songs tied for the last place, in which case the number of points each song receives decreases until it bottoms out at 1 point each.

2018.10.27 05:12 zoanthewriter My Old Town
Here's an original short story I wrote called My Old Town. Let me know what you think of it. I always wanted feedback on this story.
Chapter One Kenny was bored. He had been living a routine lifestyle for the past God knows however years. He went to his day time job at an insurance company. It was painfully tedious. All he did he was try to sell insurance to bunch of old people, who only purchased it because of fear of physical health problems down the line, which they capitalized and manipulated on... or for paranoid overprotective parents who wanted to ensure nothing bad could ever come to their children. He has been working at this job for about 4 years now, and was already disinterested in all that it had to offer. He had a boss, that was like a typical boss in the workforce. Demanded the best from his employees while rewarding minimally and frugally. Like most bosses, he didn't care about being liked. All he cared about was the zeros coming into his bank account. His boss wasn't all that bad though. Personal conversations wasn't far and few in between, and he enjoyed the conversations he had with his boss. He just wished he wasn't such a good actor. Kenny's boss pretended like he generally cared for the well being of his employees, but he knew it was just all an act. Like he stated before, all he really cared about was the zeros in his bank account. Kenny was currently sitting on the chair accompanied to his desk in the room. He had the latest gaming entertainment system and a big TV to enjoy his recreational time. However, he found video games to be boring in general. He only purchased it because it was the modern fad, and he felt like it would help pass time by. But it didn't. It would seldom work, as he had a game or two that he enjoyed playing. The latest game he actually finished was a RPG game called Mermona 5. It was about a group of high schoolers who fought against corrupt adults in a metaverse. It was cheesy, but Kenny genuinely and thoroughly enjoyed it. His high school life was nothing compared to these crazy teenagers, but it was something that kept him entertained the whole way through. He was now playing a Zombie Apocalypse game, but found the gameplay slow, rather boring. Like stated before, he was bored. The gaming entertainment system offered a free movie, and TV show subscription. Kenny spent a good 10 minutes scrolling through his options. He used to really enjoy watching movies, particularly with a lady friend, but he was used to watching them alone now. He was extremely sick of all the cinematic trends these days. There was only a surplus of superhero movies, which weren't all bad, and some that Kenny enjoyed, but he definitely did have a superhero movie fatigue going on. Furthermore, everything felt like lies. All the actors and actresses had to pretend for the audience sake and that's what turned off Kenny. These people had to live fake lives, play pretend roles, all for the sake of their audience. Something about that rubbed Kenny off the wrong way, As for friends, why didn't Kenny contact any of them? To be honest, he cut off ties with all of them, sick of their lying and deceiving nature. He had an aboundful of friends in his younger days, but he realized they were all predicated on something not genuine. With some, he blew up on them, with years or rage pent up, subconciously and consciously. With others, he just left their lives quietly, without ever publicly announcing that was cutting ties with them. With no plans, and nothing to do, Kenny decided he would go to a local popular bar. It was called Toni Toni's. It was a good 20 minute drive, enough for Kenny to do some thinking while driving. That's what he enjoyed during his personal time. Whether it was his commute for work, or driving for personal enjoyment, he enjoyed thinking while driving in his car. He used to be a big fan of music, but like the movies and tv shows, he felt that artists were just people who had to pretend for their audience's sake. He drove with pure silence now. He pulled up to Toni Toni's and entered. The bartender asked for how many, and he replied, “Just one.” Usually, people are the type to be embarrassed about eating/dining at an establishment alone. Kenny couldn't care any less. The truth was, Kenny didn't really care about anything. He was completely apathetic to everything in life. I don't know if he would classify himself as depressed, as he didn't feel like he wanted to kill himself or anything like that, but he knew one thing: He wasn't happy. He drank a pitcher of beer to himself, and thought to himself, “What am I doing here?” He looked at the crowd of faces in the bar. There was the usual. A group of youngsters who just turned 21 and had to spent a night out at Toni Toni's, a couple that just wanted to have a night out together, a group of brodies that were having a bro's night out, and some familiar faces that could have been some people he went to high school with.Then he saw a group of women who piqued his interest. They were an attractive bunch of 5 girls, discussing about something. Kenny couldn't help but eavesdrop on their conversation. It was about some writer or something that one of the woman liked. Not wanting to his extend his stay, he decided to get going. Coming to Toni Toni's wasn't such a bad idea, but it wasn't a good one either. He headed outside, and was about to open his car door, when he heard a woman call out his name. “Kenny! OMG. Is that you?!”, exclaimed the woman. Kenny turned around to see who it was. It was Renee. “Renee. What's up. Yeah. Its me.”, said Kenny. Kenny couldn't tell if he was disappointed to see Renee or not. She wasn't a complete stranger, but she wasn't a close friend either. Just someone very random. “I haven't seen you in like forever. You been like a ghost. No one knows what you been up to. How the hell have you been?”, said Renee. “I been all right. Could be better.”, said Kenny. “Were you planning to leave? I didn't mean to bother you at all.”, said Renee. “Yeah I was planning to go, but I could chit chat and talk.”, said Kenny. “Cool. I was actually getting some weed from my car. You want to toke up?”, asked Renee. “Sure. That be pretty cool. I could use some grass.”, said Kenny. “Get in my car. We're gonna hotbox it.”, said Renee. “Haha, all right.”, said Kenny. They both got inside Renee's car. Kenny didn't know it, but a conversation with an old friend, to talk about the things of their old town, was exactly something he needed. He was going to have a fun time with Renee. Chapter Two Kenny got inside Renee's car. It was a red Mini Cooper. The car already reeked of weed and cigarettes. It was fairly clean, however, which was a starking contrast. Kenny assumed Renee smoked a lot in her car. “I just picked up this strain. It's one of my favorite. It's called 'Gone With The Wind'.”, said Renee. “What kind of strain is it? Sativa or indica?”, replied Kenny. “It's a hybrid.”, said Renee. “Cool. I like hybrid.” “Here. You can take the first hit.”, said Renee. Renee loaded up a bong that was loaded with a bowl. Kenny was somewhat wary. He was used to only smoking through pieces and tiny bubblers. He knew bong rips were strong, but he didn't want to look like a wuss in front of Renee. He decided to take a fat rip. It felt good. He handed over the bong to Renee, who proceeded to take a hit. They were both taking turns taking hits from the bong. They were probably 3 bowls in. The conversation started. “When's the last time you visited Borrance?”, asked Renee. “Me. Can't remember. It's been years. Probably like 5 years.”, said Kenny. “Geesh?! 5 years. It's been that long. You should visit. That's our hometown.”, said Renee. “I don't know. Just too many bad memories.”, replied Kenny. “What about you? When's the last time you visited?”, asked Kenny. “I visit pretty frequently. Just about a month ago or so.”, replied Renee. “I know people were fucked up to you, but that doesn't change the fact you were raised there and grew up there.”, said Renee. “I know, but just fuck everyone.”, said Kenny. “Haha. I understand. I would feel the same if I was you. I guess even Kind Kenny has his limits.”, said Renee. “Yeah...”, mumbled Kenny. “You still dating Kyle?”, asked Kenny. “Haha nah. We broke up a while ago. Dang, if you think I'm still dating Kyle, that just goes to show how long it's been since we caught up.”, said Renee. “Why'd you guys break up, if you don't mind me asking.”, asked Kenny. “I don't know. Things just didn't work out. I think we just got tired of each other.”, said Renee. “Hmm yeah. I see.”, said Kenny. “What about you? Any lucky lady in your life since I last seen you?”, asked Renee. “Nah. I been single for a while now. I haven't dated anyone since Melissa.”, said Kenny. “WHAT?! Get out of here. Seriously no one?!”, reacted Renee. “Yeah... nobody.”, replied Kenny. “Whatever the hell happened to you two? Everybody thought that you two would be the high school sweethearts that would make it.”, said Renee. “Like you. Just life.”, replied Kenny. “Is it true? I know you don't like to talk about it. But that you forced her to get an abortion.”, asked Renee. “God no! You believe in those rumors too much like everyone else Renee.”, said Kenny. “Then how come there was that infamous day, when she was bawling her eyes out. Everyone knew it was about you.”, said Renee. “It's a long story.”, said Kenny. “I got all the time in the world my friend.”, said Renee. “*sigh* fine. I'll tell you.”, said Kenny. “Long story short, I cheated on Melissa with Karina. But Karina gave me an STD. I didn't tell Melissa for the longest time. The only reason she found out was because she was getting problems in her junk, and went to the doctors and they confirmed she got an STD. And of course, Melissa was faithful to me so it left her with the only conclusion that I was cheating on her. That's why she was bawling her eyes out. She had to find all that out in one day.”, said Kenny. “Wow. That is crazy. Who knew Karina had an STD huh?”, said Renee. “You're an asshole for cheating on Melissa?! How could you? That girl really loved you.” “It was just spur of the moment. I am a man, Renee.”, said Kenny. “But don't get me wrong. I felt really bad about it. It was weighing heavily on my conscience for months.” “Is that the reason you two broke up?”, asked Renee. “One of the many. She was going out of state for college anyways, but yeah the cheating was one of the biggest reason. After that, things were never the same. She never quite trusted me the same.”, said Kenny. “I wouldn't blame her. I would be the same too if someone cheated on me and got me an STD the same time.”, said Renee. “How come you never dated anyone after her. That's been YEARS yo!”, said Renee. “I don't know. I tried. But it's just too much of a hassle. The getting to know each other part is too tedious. It just feels like being interviewed and being questioned by a surveynaire or something.”, said Kenny. “Yeah... I know what you mean. Well are you guys still friends?”, asked Renee. “Nah... We're not.”, replied Kenny “Why not?”, asked Renee. “I don't know... I kind of fucked up. When she got to college, she started dating this one fat fuck. And I was pissed. It's like she rebounded me with him out of all people. That just felt like complete disrespect. So I told her, “I'm disappointed in you. You could do better.”. And then she just got really pissed.”, said Kenny. “Hahaha! How cute. You were all jealous and stuff. Dang so that's the reason why you guys aren't friends?”, asked Renee. “Pretty much it.”, said Kenny. “Do you wish you were still friends?”, asked Renee. “To be honest. Yeah. I miss her. She was my best friend. We used to talk for hours on the telephone, we spent every wakening moment with each other. Cutting that off and losing all that just felt like too much of a loss for me.”, said Kenny. “But I haven't thought about it too much. I just accepted it. Melissa is just some girl from the past.” “I have hope you guys are going to be friends again.”, said Renee. “You guys were crazy about each other in high school. Those things last forever.” “Let's just hope you're right, Renee.”, said Kenny. “Dang I haven't talked this much in ages, especially about Melissa. Thanks for listening to all this.” “Haha no problem Kenny. That's what I'm hear for. You just left on such a bad note with everyone, I was worried you hated everyone.”, replied Renee. “In my heart, I do.”, said Kenny Renee punched Kenny in the arm. “Learn to forgive!”, shouted Renee. “You still making music? Your group was so talented.” “I been making some things here and there. I actually made a recent album. You want to check it out?” “Sure.”, said Renee. “It's long though. It's like about 30 minutes.”, said Kenny. Kenny busted out his black Nano ipod, and asked Renee for the Aux chord. He played her his most recent album that he made, called From The Ashes. It was 14 tracks. The track listing was this: From The Ashes Tracklist 1. Master 2 2. Tenacity 3. Mirror 4. Therapist 5. Bigger Man 6. Epiphany 7. Star 8. Freestyle 3 9. Legacy 10. Who Am I 11. Proposal 12. Shut The Fuck Up 13. Morning Happy Ending They spent the next 30 minutes listening to each song. Of course, Kenny would stop between each track just to get feedback and stuff. Kenny didn't know though, was how touched and impressed Renee was. It wasn't even just because they were high. It's because there was so much maturity, pain, and vulnerability in all the songs. Renee was moved. This was easily one of Kenny's best work. “So what do you think overall?”, asked Kenny. “I LOVED IT. You still got it man... Always been talented. Always knew you and your group was going to make it far. It's a shame you guys broke up.”, said Renee. “Yeah... What tracks are your favorite?”, asked Kenny. “I really liked Therapist, Master 2, Bigger Man, Star, and Shut The Fuck Up.”, said Renee. “Thanks. I like those too.”, said Kenny. “But Kenny... why be a solo act? You were part of a group that was so good. What made you guys break up?”, asked Renee. “Don't pretend like you don't know why we broke up.”, said Kenny. “I mean I know the gist of it all and stuff, but I don't know the whole story. Shit, I thought you made Melissa get an abortion so who knows the actual reason why you and the band broke up.”, said Renee. “We broke up because of CJ. Did you know CJ was gay for me all along?”, asked Kenny. “To be honest. Yeah.”, said Renee. “How was it that the whole school was in on it, and I didn't know the whole gooddamn time.”, said Kenny. “I felt like such a fool. They all lied to me. I was played.” “Is him being gay really that bad of a reason for the band to split?”, asked Renee. “Yeah it is. Because he lied to me. And it's not just that he's gay. It's that he's gay for me.”, said Kenny. “That lying ass snake did everything so we never hung out with girls after the show, always did things so he could try to spend one on one time with me, and all the band members were in on it. Not only that, he lied. He used girls that I was impressed with to create himself to be this womanizer stud that he wasn't. He was just some faggot. Let's not forget that ridiculous unneeded diss track that never even once addressed him being gay. I could have fired back... I could have made something infintely thousand times worse. But I didn't. All because he was once a homie.” “But he was your best friend wasn't he?”, asked Renee. “That's the part that hurts the most.. is that he was. But the sad truth was I didn't even know who he really was the whole time. I just admired a fictitious version of him.”, replied Kenny. “Why are you trying to make me consolidate things with him? Why does it feel like you are on his side?”, asked Kenny. “I'm not... I'm just trying to make you see things in a different perspective.”, said Renee. “You know everyone had high hopes for you guys. Everyone thought that you guys were going to make it big and make the city proud. We were all rooting for you. I think that's why it's so sad to see you guys split.”, said Renee. “Don't you miss the band?” “Of course I miss the band. Mike is one of the best guitarist and talented musician I know. I could listen to that fool play guitar all day long, and just have me freestyle while he plays. Jinju is one of the most talented female singers I know. But she got all big with the TV show hit single, and she never looked back. She was always meant for bigger things. The band was always holding her back. I don't know. It's like how could they root for me and CJ to be together when they know that I don't feel that way for him? I never liked some of the things CJ did as well. He always made it seem like we were the only rappers of the group. The other guys could rap. I always wanted to collab with the other guys and get them on tracks, but he somehow never allowed that. He was always just a snake.” “Do you miss CJ?”, asked Renee “Hell no. That guy can fucking die for all I care, and that's the honest to God truth.”, said Kenny. “That's a little harsh don't you think?”, asked Renee. “It is. But it's honestly how I feel.”, said Kenny. “Whatever. Why are we even talking about the band? It's been years since I last thought of them, and we split up and went to go do our different things.”, said Kenny. “You just bring up bad stuff Renee.” “Haha sorry. Didn't mean to. Just thought that they'd still be important to you.”, said Renee. “*Sigh.* You got any more weed left?”, asked Kenny. Kenny and Renee would take a few break to hit couple of more hits from the bong. Their conversation would continue. Chapter Three “Who are you even here with?”, asked Kenny. “I'm with some of my gang from high school. You know the usual. Aurash, Steven, Minji, Angeline, and Sandy. You don't want to go inside and see them?”, asked Renee. “Nah. Not really... Haha that sounds fucked up.”, said Kenny “Haha, such a recluse. You don't need to be this macho tough guy going at life alone.”, teased Renee. “I know. But you don't need to go back inside?”, asked Kenny. “Nah. I can just tell them that I ran into you. If anything, they'll call me if they're planning to do something else.”, said Renee. “Good. Cause I was enjoying talking to you, and wouldn't have wanted it to end.”, said Kenny. “Awww. Look at Kind Kenny being affectionate, just like how he used to be.”, joked Renee. “Haha don't call me Kind Kenny. You know I hate that nickname.”, said Kenny. “Kind Kenny! Kind Kenny! Kind Kenny!”, proclaimed Renee. “I hate you.”, said Kenny. “Haha whatever.”, said Renee “So what do you do now?”, asked Kenny. “I been waitressing. After college, I couldn't get any jobs because I had no experience. So I been doing that and just living at home with my parents.”, said Renee. “Sounds tough. Where do you waitress at?”, asked Kenny. “I waitress at The Revolver. It's an all you can eat sushi joint.”, said Renee “Sounds like you get good tip or something.”, said Kenny. “Yeah I do. It's just tiring as hell standing up all day.”, said Renee. “What about you? What has become of the hotshot of Borrance?” “I just sell insurance to people.”, said Kenny. “It's boring as fuck, but it pays the bill and it helped me get out of my parent's house so I can't complain.” “Niceee. How's living life alone?”, asked Renee. “Doesn't it get lonely?” “It's boring but it feels so damn good. I hated living with my parents.” “Why you hate them so much? I know we keep visiting topics you don't want to visit, but you're adopted right?” “Yeah. I am.”, replied Kenny. “They're just fucking liars. I asked them to tell me the origin of my family and my kinship so that I can find them, but they never tell me the truth.”, said Kenny. “Wow... Well they must have their reasons right?”, asked Renee. “What kind of possible reasons could be good enough to keep a man from his true identity. That's the worst part. Not knowing who I truly am.”, said Kenny. “Yeah. Sorry, wish I can relate with you on that one, but I can't.”, said Renee. “You don't have to feel bad or pity me Renee. Just talking about it helps.”, said Kenny. “I don't know everything about my life just fucking sucks. My friends all lied to me, my family is not of blood and keeps the very information that would bring me peace, and I'm stuck at a dead end job. Without music I'd be dead.”, said Kenny. “Then make more music.”, said Renee. “Yeah. You got a way of looking at life.”, said Kenny. “So I been told hehe”, replied Renee. “It's crazy, but why don't you have a boyfriend?”, asked Kenny. “If I didn't know any better, I think you're trying to flirt with me.”, said Renee. “I don't know. You're just a really cool girl. You're pretty too.”, said Kenny “Haha I don't know. Just haven't met Mr. Right, you know what I mean?”, said Renee. “Yeah. All I need is a woman to love me, and I'll be set. That's all I need. Then I can start my own family and give my children everything I never had or wasn't given.”, said Kenny. “You still got time. I believe you'll find your own happiness, and the truth. You just gotta give it time.”, said Renee. “Hope you're right.”, said Kenny. “Hey instead of talking about all these depressing things, let's get to know each other more and just have fun. Let's ask each other questions and stuff. It be like going on a date.”, said Kenny. “Ummm... all right. You start first.”, replied Renee. “Who do you think was the most talented person in my band?”, asked Kenny. “Oh geez. Such ego. Why did you have to start out with this one?”, asked Renee. “Haha I don't know. It seems like you're a genuine fan so I wanted to get a fan's perspective.”, replied Kenny. “What are you expecting me to say you? Want me to toot your own horn Mr. Insecurity.”, teased Renee. “Haha fine... It's obviously me, but how about besides me?,” asked Kenny. “I really liked Andrew. He was a good back up vocalist, guitarist, and a great song composer. I heard he arranged and mixed and mastered the tracks for you guys right?”, said Renee. “Yeah he did. He's a talented guy. He's producing his own stuff right now. I'm proud of him and his musical achievements.”, said Kenny. “Ok. Here's my question. You already cheated on Melissa, but if you could have fucked any girl while in your time on high school as if you didn't date her, who would you have picked?”, asked Renee. “Oh and not to toot my own horn, but you can't pick me,”, said Renee. “Woah! What kind of question is that?! So graphic... How did we go from band members to people we want to be fucking? Umm... all right. If I had to pick one, it would be Angela.”, said Kenny “Ah I knew you would pick her. All the guys were crazy about Angela.”, said Renee. “I mean look at her... how could you not be?”, confessed Kenny. “What about you. Who would you pick?”, asked Kenny. “Oh no question. I would fuck the shit out of Dylan.”, stated Renee. “What?! That's an interesting pick to say. You were always close with Brian... people always suggested yall two hooked up... Would have pegged him or something.”, said Kenny. “Please. That skinny pencil dick goon wished he got some yam from me.”, replied Renee. “Hahaha... pencil dick... I can totally imagine him with a pencil dick with that skinny body of his.”, laughed Kenny. “How many sexual partners have you had?”, asked Kenny. “14. I know. Don't judge me. I was going through a rough period of time after I broke up with Kyle, and I was just sleeping around to fill the void.”, said Renee. “How about you?” “Just two. Melissa and Karina. I peaked early haha. Haven't gotten laid in forever.”, said Kenny. “What's something you never told anyone else before?”, asked Renee. “I would kill my foster dad in an instant. Give me a gun and I'll shoot him without hesitation. Like you, don't judge me.”, confessed Kenny “Wow. Really?! Why?”, asked Renee. “Cause he's just such a fucking liar. He pretends like he loves me and all, but if he did, he would give me the information I so greatly desire and seek. Plus, he's just an actor. He acts like he's this hard working businessman who makes this long ass commute like he's some kind of family man, but he's just a bum. I know the money is coming in from somewhere else.”, said Kenny. “And the tale of the fucked up life of Kenny continues.”, said Renee. “How about you?”, asked Kenny. “I got roofied and raped. It was sometime in college. I was at a social gathering and there was this really creepy guy that wanted to fuck me for a long time. He basically roofied my drink and took advantage of me.”, said Renee. “Oh my god. I'm sorry to hear that. That's fucked up. Those kind of things should never happen. Can I ask you something? Would you kill him?”, asked Kenny. “At first I did. I really wanted to hurt that motherfucker, but now I'm okay. He's in jail now, so it's all good. I'm sure he's getting his due just.”, said Renee. “Damn. I guess I wasn't the only one going through hard times.”, said Kenny. Kenny was having a good time. For once, he was being social. He was learning to trust people again. And he was opening up. Who knew a night alone trying to drink at Toni Toni's would end up with having a wonderful time with Ms. Renee? “All right this one is cheesy, and I'm taking it down a notch, but what's your favorite pokemon?”, asked Kenny. “Haha what... such a child. Hmmm.... I stopped playing after gen 2. I would probably pick Espeon or Dragonair. Both so elegant in their design. It's a shame that thing evolves into a Dragonite”, said Renee. “What?! But Dragonite is so cool... I like your picks. I can see why you went for those.”, said Kenny. “What about you? What's your favorite pokemon?”, asked Renee “Ahhh that's too hard to choose. I would go with Arcanine or Mew. They're both so cool to me in my eyes.”, said Kenny. “Yeah. I like your picks too. Mew is everyone's favorite though.”, said Renee. “Yeah... but I don't know. I just really like the design.”, said Kenny. “All right. If you could have one super power, which one would it be?”, asked Renee. “Easy. Power of teleportation. You forget something at home, you can easily get it back. You'll never be late to anything. And you can travel the world for free.”, said Kenny. “What about you?” “I would pick the power to control fire That be super cool. It's like being like Fire fist Ace from One Piece.”, replied Renee. “What's your favorite Disney princess?”, asked Kenny “No doubt Mulan. She was the only princess that didn't actively search for a man to save her. She was a total badass being able to hang with the boys.”, replied Renee. “Mine is Rapunzel. I just resonate with her story the most, even though I'm a man. I also like how they made her strong, and not completely useless like some of the other princesses.”, said Kenny. “Yeah. Rapunzel is pretty cool.”, said Renee. Renee's phone buzzed. She got a text. It was from one of her friends. “Hey. Some of the people wanted to go karaoke and stuff. You down?”, asked Renee. Kenny was unsure of what he wanted to do. It's been a long time since he socialized with anyone and he was having a really good time with Renee. He knew he had nothing better to do and that refusing this offer would mean going home and staying alone for another lonesome night. He wasn't too fond of the people from high school. After all, they were all in on CJ being gay for him, but not telling him. But was that such a reason to still hold a grudge? “Yeah. I'll go.”, said Kenny. “Cool. We could use a rapper.”, said Renee. We're gonna go to 501. You good to drive right?”, asked Renee. “Yeah. I'm good. I'll cya there.”, Kenny said. Chapter Four Kenny drove to the karaoke location. It was called 501. It was not too far from Toni Toni's. About a good 5-10 minute drive. He was nervous to see people. How would they pretend to greet him? They all knew he didn't like them, and that he hated their guts. Would they be friendly? Would they be scared of him? He went inside. Everyone was already inside. There was Aurash, Steven, Minji, Angeline, Sandy, and Renee. They all greeted him in their own different way. “Ahhhh Kenny!! It's been ages my nigga.”, said Aurash. “Yeah. It has been. Good seeing you Aurash.”, replied Kenny. “Heard you met Renee in the parking lot. It be cool to catch up.”, said Minji. “Haha yeah...”, replied Kenny. The gang sang a bunch of songs. Some Justin Bieber joints, some Ed Sheeran songs, some Jason Mraz songs, some Keyshia Cole, some Taylor Swift, other classics like Camron's “Hey Ma”, and many more. Kenny sang his usual songs that he enjoyed. He sang “Don't Stop Me Now” by Queen, “Where Is The Love” by The Black Eyed Peas, “Changes” by Tupac, and a Korean song called 지원진다, by Kim Jong Kook. He missed going karaoke. It was in his nature to be a performer, and it felt good performing these songs in front of everyone. Later on Kenny would even sing a duet with Renee. They would sing a cheesy High School Musical song together. After another round of singing, the group was finally done. They had stayed in the karaoke room for about 2 hours. That was enough to satisfy Kenny's need to sing/rap and perform. Now here came the awkward part. The mingling and small talk that he dreaded so much. It was inevitable though and he knew that this was what he was signing up for when he decided to go with Renee and the group to karaoke. They were loitering around in the parking lot. Thus, the conversations began. “Yo. What made you come out to Toni Toni's?”, asked Steven. “I don't know. I was just bored. Wanted something to do.”, replied Kenny. “You came by yourself? C'mon Kenny! That's kind of sad.”, said Steven. “Yeah it is. I'm just a sad man now.”, replied Kenny. “You should come out with us. We come here every once in a while.”, said Angeline. “Yeah... maybe. I don't know. I just been doing my own thing.”, said Kenny. “What the hell you and Renee talk about? You were in the parking lot forever.”, asked Sandy. “Just stuff... life I guess.”, Kenny replied. “Can I be straight up with you guys? Why'd you guys lie about CJ being straight?” “We just had to man... He was crazy about you, and we wanted yall to be together.”, said Aurash. “Well what about me? You guys ever consider I didn't want any part of that.”, said Kenny. “We're sorry Kenny. We didn't know it would turn out the way it did.”, said Minji. “And you guys honestly thought him lying all this much, would somehow make me win affections or feelings for him?”, asked Kenny. “We just didn't know what to do. It was dumb but it was just the plan we went with.”, said Aurash. “But you guys were close as nails. It's almost as if you guys were actually dating, except without the physical and sexual part.”, said Angeline. “We were just close friends... Like how normal guys are if they aren't deceiving each other.”, said Kenny. “Look. We made our share of mistakes. What can we do to make it up to you? Tonight is your night, my man.”, said Steven. “Let's go to the view off Hawthorne.”, said Kenny. Kenny didn't know why he suggested it, but he wanted to go to Borrance's best viewpoint in town. It was going to be a bit of a drive, and the town is a place he hasn't visited for the longest time, but he felt like this is what he wanted to do. “All right. If you say so.”, said Renee. “Let's get going!” The drive there was a weird one. Kenny wasn't regretting the decision to go to the viewpoint, but he wondered why he was spending time with his deceivers. His conversation with Renee made him realize it's time to forgive and drop all the stuff from the past. People make mistakes, and they should always be given the chance to be forgiven. Plus, karaoke was fun, and it felt nice having a sense of camaraderie with people. He eventually reached the viewpoint. It was everything like he remembered. Breathtaking. Because it was the city's highest point, you could see all the stars, and there was complete isolation. This was one of Kenny's favorite spot to go to. He would come here late night for a smoke, or just to clear his head and his thoughts. Thankfully, he had couple of blankets in his car that he used as a mat for the gang to sit on. They didn't do much. Renee brought out the bong, and they just toked up and caught up. Kenny didn't realize how much life has changed for everyone. Because he had missed so much time in Borrance, he had so much catching up to do with everyone. He listened to everyone's story and what they were doing with their life. He didn't feel the need to talk. He had his fill with Renee from earlier, and didn't feel like discussing anything whether it be about Melissa, the band, or his foster family. The night would eventually end and they would split up and go their own way. Kenny came up with a resolve that night that he would follow up on when he would wake up. He was determined to follow this plan through, and was absolutely sure this was something that he needed to do. He went to sleep, eager for the next day to arrive, something which he hasn't felt for the longest time. Chapter Five Kenny woke up. He knew what he had to do. He sent a group facebook message to his old bandmates. He explained and apologized for his absence and his hiatus from the group's involvement. He asked them that he would like to make one more album together for old time sake. He waited patiently for their response. Unfortunately, people were either too “busy” or still upset at the way Kenny treated CJ. Mike was busy with work, and couldn't make it. Jinju was busy with her record label and her schedule was too jam packed to make it all the way back to Borrance or the city Kenny resided in. Andrew was actually on CJ's side and had a personal grudge against him so he didn't feel like working with him. Not surprisingly, CJ blocked Kenny so there was no way for him to receive the message. The other band mates all said they were too busy or ignored the message. Kenny wasn't too disappointed. He knew things would be like this. After all, he was the one who left them and was the reason they disbanded. He shrugged. He did what he can do on his end. Kenny would end up working on the project himself. He didn't have a title for it, but he finished the project within a month or two. He worked on it like a madman, and the finished product had about 12 songs. He would burn the tracks onto a disc, and would bury the CD onto the ground of his high school. This was his way of paying tribute, or honor the people that raised him. They lied to him, deceived him, humiliated him, but this was the least he could do. This went to go to show he hated them, but still deep down had love for his old town. THE END.

2017.09.10 19:17 ThatParanoidPenguin [DISCUSSION] I've been curating a list (with a lengthy description for each song) of the most overlooked, underrated, slept on tracks since 2017 began. Here is the playlist of music for August 2017.
I took a long time this month because I'm lazy. I finally went through all the music from July and put some write-ups together and I hope to introduce you all to some new music. There's a lot of cool songs this month, and I wanted to take this month to spotlight a lot of bigger pop artists that have mostly fallen by the wayside this month, so you might see some names that you recognize.
I made a post on /hiphopheads
for the whole year of 2016 with some really good hip hop tracks that were slept on and had some pretty good reception. Since 2017 started, I decided to do the same for pop music - however, I quickly found out that there's so much good pop that it would be impossible to make an end-of-year post and keep it under 40,000 characters if I wanted to make it in-depth. So, I've decided to make a post every month or so. Before I begin, here's a few notes:
I don't have a real metric for exactly how popular the song is allowed to be. I usually go off of Spotify plays, but I don't really use a number because there are songs that are massive somewhere and aren't popular here. All My Friends has like 200 million plays on Spotify and yet no one in this damn country (US) knows it exists. However, I wouldn't post it on here because the general pop community has probably heard it. I also won't add anything that got a good amount of votes on this sub.
I kinda cheat. If you want to listen to really good stuff without any of the work, I recommend Spotify (if you're on another music service, you might be out of luck. I used to use Songza, which is now GPM, and their playlists were absolutely the best around) playlists, specifically Fresh Finds: Hiptronix, and Discover Weekly (if you listen to a lot of pop). However, I find the best stuff so I'm kinda being an aggregator of aggregates, I guess.
The list is limited to one main artist, but if the artist is featured, they can be featured as much they possibly could. If there's a song you feel like I missed, it might be because of this. It also might be because I felt the song I chose was better than the ones left out.
Also, I have a playlist I update once every week or more often with every single damn pop song I come across, regardless of popularity. Like the Slept On Pop playlist, it’s 1 song per artist, but features can have the same artist as many times as possible. Here it is, sitting at 41 hours of music with 691 songs so far.
2017 ULTIMATE POP
SaNTINO - Girl
UK Soundcloud musician SaNTINO serves us some jazzy disco vibes on Girl. The production here is super lush, and his buttery vocals. This song isn’t as much as a straight throwback, as say 24K magic - the chorus reflects on indie pop like Toro y Moi, and the delivery is subtle enough to make it feel modern. The real beauty here is the bridge, with a guitar riff that’s killer, and the perfect length to break up the track.
NSTASIA - Trap or Die
This is a really interesting track. On Trap or Die, NSTASIA delivers a Fetty Wap-esque melodic trap delivery over a beat pretty much ripped straight out of Hotline Miami (at least the more sundrenched tracks). The vocals here are seriously dreamy, giving it almost a ballad quality. “You don’t fuck with no 9 to 5,” she croons.
Starrah - Imperfections (feat. Diplo)
Starrah is the talented writer of many successful pop songs, including Rihanna’s Needed Me, Cashmere Cat’s Trust Nobody, Drake’s Fake Love, Halsey’s Now or Never, Calvin Harris’ Feels, and a whole bunch more (including Camila’s new song Havana!). Her solo music is fierce trap pop, and with Diplo at the helm of production, you have the formula for a catchy hit. And that’s exactly what is delivered. The chorus here is absolutely infectious, and while the instrumental is generic, it certainly works. I wouldn’t be surprised if this one starts to creep up the Hot 100.
Briana Marela - Call It Love
Briana Marela’s Call It Love is an album that is as beautiful as it is anxious. The title track of the same name is a whirling, cloudy dream pop song. It’s about that moment of uncertainty before wanting to solidify a relationship. The synthpop instrumental elevates the track to a level of bliss that feels almost Grimes and K-poplike in parts, and although the song is a long one, it unfolds itself in such a masterful way that the latter half of the song really ends up actualizing itself really well.
Phoebe Ryan - Forgetting All About You (feat. Blackbear)
Phoebe Ryan’s newest effort is a post-party bop that reflects on that party-till-you-forget-your-ex lifestyle. The chorus is just sugary enough to make the song seem pretty happy, and the bubbly production does the same. But the lyrics (“I Drink till I’m sick, throw up in the club - it’s super fun forgetting all about you”) aren’t so happy. They’re playful and it means well for the song. Blackbear also delivers a fitting verse and some nice background adlibs.
PnB Rock - Time
PnB Rock is one of the rappers that earned a spot on XXL’s Freshman List of 2017. His newest single, Time, however, is a tropical pop jam. It’s a bit more lowkey than Forgettable, but provides similar vibes. This one unfortunately arrives as summer ends, but hopefully I’ll get a week or two of play for this one.
Steve Angello - Breaking Kind (feat. Paul Meany)
Steve Angello is one third of ex-house supergroup Swedish House Mafia. He’s since disbanded and worked on his solo career, and he has released a new single called Breaking Kind. It starts off emulating a bit of Avicii’s country sound, before absolutely erupting into an 80s synthfest. It’s a more aggressive and full version of Justin Bieber’s Friends, and I adore the chorus. It’s massive in all the right ways, and definitely nails that outrun feel that I love so much.
Brasstracks - Favorite (feat. Vanjess)
Favorite is a soul-inspired dance bop that oozes sexiness and style. It’s got some glorious horns, and a chorus that is as smooth as it is dancey. It reminds me of the R&B stylings of something like Snakehips, and really does a great job of mashing up the two genres.
Trippy Turtle - Animal
The cover invented furries. Anyway, Animal is a wild track. It’s part R&B, part hype rap, part electropop, and all awesome. The entire track feels like a festival hit, and changes quite a bit throughout the admittedly long duration. My favorite is the absolutely ridiculous pitch-shifted chorus, with a banging synth and drum combo and the iconic line “Had a threesome with a bunny!” The second chorus (?) asks you to “Look at all these animals on drugs” over a quite industrial instrumental, and squeaks and adlibs only add to the weirdness. The song as a whole is really unique and easily one of my favorites in this list this week.
Giraffage - Slowly (feat. Matosic)
Slowly is an electropop electrobop. It’s got a marching chorus, some nice vocals, and a really dreamy atmosphere. It has a punch to it, and some really retro synths going on. What more is there to ask for?
New Politics - CIA
New Politics are a Copenhagen indie pop band that has serious crossover appeal. Their new single, CIA, is 100% my favorite single of August. It’s a serious monster of a track, with a super catchy beat, a wild but effective bridge, and one of the most stadium-stomping, head-banging choruses I’ve heard this entire year. Seriously, it absolutely bangs with the amazing line “My house, I break the law in my house, like the CIA,” with more lyrical insanity coming from the pre-chorus “Hey, I was born a sinner, Michelin star for dinner.” It’s absolutely impossible not to dance to this track, and it may be the catchiest song they’ve made to this date.
Frances Rose - Read My Body
Frances Rose’s Read My Body is a trip down the 80s memory lane. The production here is as sparkling as any pop girl single from the decade, and a bit more refined than something like Sky Ferriera. It’s a synth-heavy track that commands, and uses its bittersweet, swaying chorus to really push the song to new heights.
Kelsea Ballerini - Unapologetically
Kelsea Ballerini takes country pop to the more pop sides of things, even incorporating a few elements of trap percussion into this track. It’s got a sunburnt but cheerful hook, and some nice instrumentation. It’s a really catchy song and I wouldn’t be surprised to hear this song play on the radio and get pretty popular.
Tiffany Gouché - Down
On Down, Tiffany Gouché delivers some sexy vocals on a lush R&B instrumental. “Girl, I take you down, down,” she says. The track is straight vibes, and the hip hop influence just gives it enough variety to be something damn good.
Stefflon Don - Hurtin’ Me (feat. French Montana)
Stefflon Don is a London rapper who has garnered quite a bit of buzz with her take on UK grime. Hurtin’ Me, however, is a tropical jam. Alongside French Montana, she sings over a summery beat that feels oh so slightly melancholy. French brings a brief but enjoyable verse, and the song very much bops.
NVDES - Dancer from New York
Dancer from New York is an indie pop anthem, a track that takes the best from indie rock and the best from dance pop. The chorus feels ripe for radio, and the song marries guitar and synth especially well.
Tori Amos - Up The Creek
Tori Amos is a 90s legend, an artist who has had so many eras in her career, from her instrumental piano pieces to her alt rock singles. On Up The Creek, she sings over orchestral piano and violin accompanied by a drum machine. It’s a cinematic, gorgeous song, and I’m living for it.
The Horrors - Something to Remember Me By
Much like White Lies’ new album, The Horrors take a synthpop route on Something to Remember Me By. It feels very Talking Heads, as the vocals compliment the trancey beat. The song clocks in at a daunting 6:40, but does a great job of building up to extravagant whiplash of a drop near the end the end of the track.
Jarreau Vandal - Make You Love Me (feat. Zak Abel)
Make You Love Me is a song that’s best described as having two parts. There’s the duality of the dissonant piano in the verses, and the absolute smash of a chorus we get, a synth-filled 90s wonderland. There’s even a weird but welcome hip hop bridge that just works. This is a soul filled track that dabbles in everything and succeeds in them all.
Alexandra Starr - I See It All
Alexandra Starr gives a nice vocal performance over one of the cooler synthpop beats I’ve heard this year. It’s very defined, providing a synthy refuge. It harkens back to something like Young Galaxy, with a rush of different textures, except this track moves a bit faster. Cool song.
Laucan - Wait for the Impact (Wu-Lu Remix)
I don’t usually add remixes to these lists because I opt for the original song, but in this case, I just had to throw the remix in here. This track is positively electric, with an instrumental that feels as sleepy and gazey as the title suggests. The guitar work here is great, and there’s a ton of other instruments that really add to the atmosphere going on.
Ford. - Lazy Sad (feat. Sophie Meiers & Hanz)
“I feel so lazy sad, seems like I’m fading fast” is about as me_irl as it gets when it comes to opening lines. Lazy Sad is a song about being lazy and sad. It’s a mellow, quiet track that has a drop that couldn’t be any more somber. It’s a really nice vibe, a song that feels like it was meant to be played in a dark bedroom or empty sunset. Not that I would know either of those things, right? Right?
Krosses - Gold
Gold is a happy, feel-good bop. It’s centered wholly around that triumphant, movie-credits-esque drop, complete with horns, some maximalist percussion, and some wacky synths. The rest of the song is a little forgettable yet cool, but that drop is just really fun and I love it.
nite swim - Everybody’s Someone in LA
Not to be confused with the Felix Da Housecat track, Everybody’s Someone in LA is a smooth, ritzy track. “Everybody’s someone in LA,” the singer states, before outlining a luxurious life of living in the city. The song is as slick as the Bojack Horseman intro, sliding around with such confidence in its demeanor that its hard to deny the city its legacy.
3thvn - Similar
Similar is a track that isn’t really similar to anything on this list. It’s got some slow vocals alongside some really nice plinks and plonks of electronic sprinkled in. The beat drops, and you’re treated to a retro video game atmosphere. The chorus is completely instrumental, and the track feels quite like leisure.
Petit Biscuit & Møme - Gravitation (feat. Isaac Delusion)
Gravitation is a really odd track. It’s even more subdued than Petit Biscuit’s smash hit Sunset Lover. The vocals here are oh so far away, and the synths feel oh so Porter Robinson. There’s a drop, but it sounds more organic than abrupt, and the whole song honestly feels like space. There’s a quality to it that makes it akin to a movie score, and each key played feels like release.
Lizzo - Water Me
Water Me is a song about self-care. It’s a feel-good anthem that’s all about positively, and most of all, it’s positively energetic. It’s got that soul deep down that really makes the song smash in any genre, but the nice incorporation of indie pop sounds that feel decidedly Miike Snow work really well. It’s a song with a ton of heart and a lot of flair.
Alice Glass - Forgiveness
It’s like Grimes but on acid. On her new EP, Crystal Castles’ Alice Glass embraces a darker, more industrial side of pop with some abrasive sounds and textures. Forgiveness might be the most conventional of the songs on the project, and it’s still rough. There’s a traceable synthline, and you just hold on to it as you are bombarded by chopped up vocals. It’s a really catchy song at its heart, but you have to spend a little time getting there.
Anna of the North - Money
Anna of the North is a pop girl you all should be keeping an eye on. On Money, she softly sneers “she’s not the one for you/just wants one thing from you: your money, your money.” The delivery throughout the entire song is just brilliant though. Not a minute feels anything but calculated, and the song is so bittersweet as a result. It verges on dream pop and really opens when the synth-laden bridge kicks in, making for one last lush chorus with it.
Daniella Mason - Cruel Summer
This track is a pure jam. It leans towards indie pop, but is accessible to anyone who enjoys breakup bops. The synths are fierce, and Daniella Mason’s vocals are just as fierce. It’s a bittersweet dance track, one that is created just to dance someone from your memory to.
Keyshia Cole - Incapable
Keyshia Cole is serving classic R&B vibes with a modern twist. Incapable is a pretty sad song - the instrumentation does a good job of really adding to the pain in her voice. Her vocals are really something special, too, and the result is a damn beautiful R&B track.
Mogwai - Party in the Dark
The final song this month is a really weird choice. I decided to add Party in the Dark by Mogwai, a post-rock band that has been serving us amazing albums since the mid-90s. Their newest single is one of their poppiest songs ever, an upbeat rock track with haunting vocals, a soothing and fascinating backing synth, and crashing drums. It’s a shoegaze-y kind of ambience, and the result is a track that was born for spacing out, which is what I’m doing at the beginning of this semester. I highly suggest you check out Mogwai’s stuff, it’s some beautiful, beautiful music.

2013.11.14 17:30 oopsydais UPDATE2: COULD YOU BELIEVE IT GOT MORE SCREWED UP? OF COURSE, I didn't listen and you warned and the worst happened WITH A DIFFERENT GIRL. (Me 23 f with boyfriend 24 m. Internet girl comes to town and fucks shit up. My friend accuses him of sleeping with her. We fight. Then were fine. Im confused.)
Alright so TL'DR of the last two were basically my (ex)boyfriend had a girl he talked to on the internet for 9 years surprise him creating a very weird situation. I got primal and catty and rude. I apologized. She ignored me. He ignored me for two days until last night.
THIS is long. It ends in being at the least emotionally cheated on with a completely different girl. Most likely physically but I'll never know, I do know they'll be hooking up tonight since I ruined their plan last night.
Last night I got off the night shift early (where my coworkers were harassing me for always dating losers) and went to a concert of my favorite artist. I originally planned to go with boyfriend but hadn't heard from him in two days so I made plans to meet up with two girlfriends seeing as I already bought my ticket. On my way down there the internet girl messages me on facebook basically bitching me out and telling me my boyfriend deserves love and respect, I just tell her I said my apology and anything else is between him and I. (Took a lot to leave it at that, this girl has no idea the things I have done for him) Get to the show and my girls attach to boys all night. Boyfriend is glaring at me while boys are trying to dance with me so I figure ohkay, alright, lets get through tonight and figure out the fuck was going on. I go stand with him and a buddy. He keeps trying to dance with me, I kept backing off. He asked if I hated him and I said well I'm not particularly happy after not hearing from you the last two days. Eventually end up dancing, he's singing the lyrics in my ears and they are all the sweet apologetic ones. We get in the car and start talking. All the blame is back on me, I say alright fuck fine, I've got two more hours of babysitter, lets go get my things from your house.
So I go to his house. I'm a wreck. Crying and just being a little bitch. He goes on about being bipolar and manic depressive which actually explained a lot, why we are so OK one minute and the next hes just picking a fight. Im apologizing under the influence we're gonna work it out. This girl, jen, shows up with his roommate. Shes a co worker. He's done really sketchy things such as ignoring me while he's with her, but, I was sick of being called insecure so I never questioned it. I figured if there was one girl I could trust around him, it was her, I loved her she was so nice and had a super cool boyfriend.
She passes out on the couch, I go cover her up with a blanket which spawns a fight because boyfriend says it's a dirty blanket. Ok My Bad. Go to his room. He's being super weird and cold. He freaks out on me and goes to bed. And I did what I promised I'd never ever do in a relationship, grabbed his phone.
He and Jen have been talking intimately for more than 12 days. Making plans on the nights he was sketchy and breaking plans with me. Him complaining about having to hang out with me. Talking about how happy they are that they talked about their feelings, wishing they would have kissed, wishing she would have stayed. She was with him while he was ignoring me at the bar with the internet girl which I suspect they probably slept together that night. Telling her he wished he was with her not me right now. I took photos of all the texts. Went back in to his room, kicked him in the leg, he wakes up I tell him everything I just saw, call him heartless, he tried to stumble out of it and I walked out not realizing I still had his phone in my pocket.
Grabbed ALL my things, Get home, go to sleep, wake up, wrote a letter wishing I could take it all back and wishing he'd have had the balls to tell me what was really going on and why he was picking fights, can't believe he had the audacity etc. Dropped the phone, his clothes, and the letter off with his room mate and now I'm at work listening to Keyshia Cole Let It Go on repeat. Changed my facebook relationship status. Have a message typed out to Jen's boyfriend, debating on if I should send it or not. I want to. I really do. If I were him I'd want to know, I did the research and found out for my damn self. Is it a bad idea to tell him?
Message reads "Hey, I met you with (ex) and Jen the other night. I did a shitty thing and looked through (exes) phone and saw some really intimate conversation between Jen and him. If I were you I'd want to know, if you have any questions message me or give me a call #######. Sorry you're hearing of this via facebook."
Sorry it had to come down to all that but clearly I wasn't going down with out a clear answer and fuck I got it. Not what I expected at all. I cant fix people. I want to help and give my all but I didn't get it back. You guys were right. You're always right. I always tell myself if I'm writing in to relationships
then it's already over, but I could not go down with out a fight. Everytime I had the courage to leave I'd take it back, I'd delete the text. Thinking he'd realize what he'd done. Love is blind. I am persistent. I am not proud that it came to this. I am not happy with my behavior at all but I'm thankful it's done and I learned the real truth. I know a lot of you are going to have some not nice things to say. I'm an idiot. This is why I don't date, I lose myself. I'm either 100% independent or Co-dependent and until I find my happy medium I have to stay out of relationships, I completely prefer being independent and so do my friends and family, and most importantly my daughter who's happiness depends on my own.
He's the most heartless piece of shit I have ever had the displeasure of fucking. And he has a very small penis, which was our first problem. I know, irrelevant, but it's true and helps me feel good that I passed that problem on to the next stupid girl. An apology from him would be nice but I know I'm not getting it.
One other thing I really want to point out is his emphasis on my crazy. I don't believe it.I think I'm an idiot but there are so many times he would try and pick fights with me, start screaming at me and yelling and I sat blank faced just telling him not to talk to me like that.
TLDR; He was with another girl, not even the one from the internet, one I liked and considered a really nice person. She has a boyfriend. I have proof, is it appropriate for me to tell him? I want to. If I were him I'd want to know. tl;dr
: Summarize with a tldr!
