Harvey and Heavy Hearts

It's been heartbreaking and overwhelming to see pictures of Houston and the surrounding areas completely submerged. Several friends have reached out to inquire about my family's safety - we're very lucky that our part of The Woodlands wasn't hit too hard by flooding, so Mama and Papa Hallberg are all fine and well. 

If you're like me and want to help, but feel a little paralyzed and don't know where to begin, here are some links I've used to help get started. These articles offer some suggestions for…

A Declaration

When asked who my heroes are, I always say Joni Mitchell and Neil Young first. It's not because I admire their talent or like their music (although, yes duh).

A Train Story

I always hoped that the first time I was proposed to would be the last. I also naturally assumed that said proposal would not begin with the question: “What’s your name?” 

It was Saturday night and I had just stepped onto the T to get home from my boyfriend’s apartment. The train car was mostly empty with the exception of a raucous group of friends who had obviously been enjoying quite a few adult beverages while watching the World Cup. I quietly slipped into an open seat toward the front with my guitar in…Read more

September Update

I'm in the throes of Orientation Week here at Berklee, but I wanted to give a few updates:

1. I never thought I'd live in a place with crazier weather than Texas, but yesterday was hot and cloudless, today is in the 60s and grayer than graphite. I'm bracing myself...

2. Despite the drastic weather, I am falling more in love with this wonderful, charming city all the time. I've explored a little bit, but there's still so much to do and see. Coming from a very "West Coast" background, I was naively afraid of…Read more
