PROMPT: Pandemic Tunes

something so small, but so influential. 

Ben Platt.
three minutes and thirty five seconds. 
neon lights and dancing. 
so short, but so influential. 

I was slipping again. I could feel it.
how do you stop something when you don't know how?

Ben Platt. 
Someone that I look up to for: 
  • Being himself. Unapologetically.
  • Creating music that can heal. 

When I listened to this song, I did exactly what he sang.

Breathe deep, let it wash over you 

I don't have a lover (probably never will), but I did just that. 
I fell in love with myself. 
I could feel it like water--
raindrops, washing over me
raindrops of myself. 
the ones that loves sour candy.
the one that adores music.
the one that believes in love, if not for herself. 
the one that, eventually,
was unapologetically hers.

    This is now one of my favourite songs, and it's thanks to you. I was looking at the published writing for this prompt before I wrote my own piece and I found this. Being a Fansen I automatically listened to it, and now it's on repeat in my brain. So I really just wanted to say thank you. You've basically given me Ben Platt in a not DEH form and I am so grateful for that. :)

    re: okay okay I'll listen to the concert after school today!!!
    yeah I'm doing basketball with this group of guys who used to play, me and three of my friends joined in. It's been really amazing; with the basketball, I used to be able to play really nicely, my team won third at districts, but I can't seem to do anything right now :( but it's still a lot of fun, especially the friends I've made outside of it.
    ahhhh mexico sounds so cool too! And Im' glad you're feeling better than two months ago :) I'm here if you want to talk about anything <3

    Re: That's great to hear!! I finished my last exam of the month about half an hour ago, so I'm really pumped right now!!! I've had my ups and downs, but other than that my life's really boring lol, basketball, studying, writing and music. What about you??
