#BLOGTOBER Day 8- It’s October again…

In my quest to keep this blog thing going for the entire month of October, I sought out some Halloween playlist inspiration and somewhere along the line, the lyric “It’s October again, leaves are coming down…” slipped into my memory.

And I realized how perfectly it lined up. 

The lyric is from a song called “Let Me Fall” performed by Haley James Scott on One Tree Hill. [Haley was portrayed by real life singer/songwriter Bethany Joy Lenz.]

The lyrics: 

“Let Me Fall”

It’s October again
The leaves are coming down
One more year’s come and gone
And nothing’s changed at all

Wasn’t I supposed to be someone
To face the things that I’ve been running from

Let me feel
I don’t care if I break down
Let me fall
Even if I hit the ground
And if I cry a little, die a little
At least I know I lived
Just a little

I’ve become much too good
At being vincible
I’m an expert at play it safe
And keep it cool

But I swear
This isn’t who I meant to be
I refuse to let my life roll over me

I wanna be somebody
Who can face the things that I’ve been running from

Let me feel
I don’t care if I break down
Let me fall
Even if I hit the ground
And if I cry a little, die a little
At least I know I lived

It’s October again
Leaves are coming down
One more year’s come and gone
And nothing’s changed at all

I feel like this song is really hitting home for me, right now. All the feels in the world. I can relate, Haley, I get you girl! 

 

I wonder is Joy wrote this song herself for the show?

 

Watch the performance below featured in episode 2×07 titled

“Let The Reigns Go Loose” 

Episode Backstory: In this episode Haley conquers her stage fright and performs at TRIC’s opening night.

An Update & Announcing #BLOGTOBER

Hello there friends.

pumpkin

October 2017

I know it has been quite some time, since I posted consistently here on michelle leigh writes. 

I was having some technical issues and it involved paying fees to upgrade my account, and I just had to really do some research and budgeting before I was able to figure out my next step. 

For now, I think I have one. At least a short term solution. 

I thought about changing hosts, and starting over. A new blog. Fresh Content. But I just couldn’t leave this one the way it’s been currently; inconsistent/not posting for months, and then what? I just decide to never come back to MLW? I couldn’t do it. It’s my baby. Besides, my current short story series “Move” was never fully finished so…keep an eye out for new chapters of that too!

RECAP from the beginning HERE

So I caved and purchased the upgrade. Not a super fan of the yearly cost, but I put 5 years of heart into this blog, I’m not ready to throw in the towel just yet. In fact, I now have my own domain- michelleleighwrites.com is my new site name. 😀

However, when my year mark resurfaces, I will re-evaluate and make the best decision for my blog from there on out. And if that means starting new then it will be an exciting adventure and I will of course keep you posted. Transferring 5 years worth of files seems like a tall order, so we will have to just see how things go in a year. 

In the meantime I have many things in store for the coming  fall months. 

Now, because I’ve been gone for what feels like forever, I wanted to start things off with a BANG! So I will be doing #BLOGTOBER. A blog post everyday for the entire month of October. And I have a lot of fun stuff planned, from movie and music reviews to fun party planning ideas, to fall love stories. It’s going to be a good time. 

DISCLAIMER: 

In the interest of transparency. I must admit I do not know where or who the idea of BLOGTOBER originated from. I didn’t even know it was a thing. I just thought of it, because I know on YouTube they do VLOGTOBER or VLOGMAS, where video bloggers post video of their everyday lives as content for the entire month of October or December. I was even more so inspired by one of my favorite youtubers, Kalyn Nicholson, who does something on her channel called #Youtober, videos posted for everyday of October. She explains it in last year’s video. [See Below:]

Fall tv schedule 2017

 

tv

MONDAYS– Dancing with the Stars (8pm), Supergirl (8pm), The Good Doctor (10pm).

*Although Supergirl will probably take the 8 o’clock spot for me, I do like to check in on Dancing with the Stars here and there- depending on who the Stars are this year. The year Bethany Mota was on, I was obsessed!

TUESDAYS– This Is Us (9pm). *I really need to catch up before this season starts!

WEDNESDAYS– Riverdale (8pm), Chicago PD (10pm).

THURSDAYS– Grey’s Anatomy (8pm), Will & Grace (9pm), Scandal (9pm), How to Get Away with Murder (10pm), Chicago Fire (10pm).

*I check in on Grey’s Anatomy here and there via YouTube and sometimes I will watch live. And although Scandal and Will & Grace are in the same time slot, I will probably watch Will & Grace live and catch Scandal on demand, I have to catch up on last season anyway! And I will probably choose to watch HTGAWM live @ 10 over Chicago Fire, since I kind of lost track of it. I love HTGAWM more, so I will just have to catch Chicago Fire on demand.

FRIDAYS– Jane the Virgin (9pm) and let’s be real probably streaming/binge watching Fuller House and Stranger Things.

SATURDAYS– _______________________

SUNDAYS–  _________________________

(Low key debating getting back into The Walking Dead- AMC (October 22nd @ 9 pm)… but that’s a whole other blog post, if I make the decision, we’ll discuss more!) 😉

See you on the flip side, my fellow TV Junkie’s.
