As a writer, does the word “restructuring” scare you? Read my latest blog post, “On ‘Moody Blue’” to learn why that word makes this writer excited!
As I mentioned in my last post, I gave up social media for Lent. It’s been a week, and I haven’t logged into Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter. I haven’t used Facebook Messenger. There are currently 75 unopened notifications, two angry-looking numbers emphasized in a red background. Granted that when I update this blog, those accounts are also updated, but the point is that I’m not wasting time by…
My experience has often been that the “stupid” comes first…

“Nearly a year ago, our 20-year celebration came to a halt when everyone’s lives were changed by Covid. Then, I was in an accident that left me worried that I would…
So during COVID I created a playlist for Tom and B’Elanna with thirty songs that all mean something different. I just hope you enjoy this list as much as I do.
1. If We have each other by Alec Benjamin
Reason: this song remind me of Workforce part 1. With B’Elanna being alone with a baby on the way… I imagine this is what Tom saw her as
2.Like Real People Do by Hozier
3. The Night We Met by Lord Huron
Reason: this song post Faces. When Tom and B’Elanna are struggling of what has happen on the Viidian planet.
4. There’s Nothing Holding Me Back (Kurt Hugo Shneider version)
Reason: this version of this song, in my personal opinion, is the song is one of the many songs I want to see created as their video.
5.Show Me What I’m Looking For by Carolina Liar
Reason: I think this is voyagers song, it’s a powerful song that represents the feeling of lost in a vast unknown if world/space
6. We Don’t Have To Take Our Clothes Off by Ella Erye
Reason: I love this song on how slow but powerful this song is, it’s season three B’Elanna song on how she’s afraid to date Tom at that very emotional and vulnerable state
7. Hero/Heroine by Boys Like Girls
Reason: Honestly the title always reminds me of captain proton. NEED I SAY MORE
8. Vindicated by Dashboard Confessions
Reason: This song is the jaded pilot turn good guy song. Literally read the lyrics and tell me that this song isn’t just telling you Tom’s full story before and on Voyager.
9. Kissaphobic by Make out Mondays
Reason: This song is an Alter Egos/ Vis a Vis song. The tone is very 1950’s and sad.
10. She by Dodie
Reason: mostly Tom song for B’Elanna during season 2+3. Watching them spend so much time together. The bridge of the song pulls at me all the time.
11. Here by Alessia Cara
Reason: tell me this is not B’Elanna song. I could honestly see her at a party or event and giving off resting bitch face while telling people she doesn’t want to be at the party.
12. Tell Her You Love Her by Echosmith
Reason: this is the fans yelling at the screen wanting post day of honor tom to tell her you love her!
13. Remembering Sunday by All Time Low
Reason: This story by Fencing Fox just makes me think of the chorus of the song. And I love this song
14. Hello My Old Heart by The Oh Hellos
Reason: Post Course Oblivion, or after clone B’Elanna death. I know at the end of the song is positive but I think that’s because clone Tom died and is now hanging out with his B’Elanna.
15. Tear in My Heart by Twenty One Pilots
Reason: another song I could see be used as a couple YouTube song… literally that build up could be the montage of them getting out of trouble.

WARNING: This is non-fiction stream-of-consciousness involving real grief, real schemas, and a better acknowledgement than I formerly felt I could give in this environment of my own fears of culpability and compliance–not that I have been untruthful, but that I haven’t–hadn’t–taken myself to court on it officially, and that’s been burning at me since the last post in this tag. I haven’t edited it beyond a typo or two, it felt disingenuous.
I’ve let enough people narrate my story, painted white, painted black. Outlining the grey is what separates me from monochrome, which is not a tone humans can live in.
Take care of yourself reading, if you do, and keep on keeping on. You are all Tock to me.
And you kissed me like you meant it
And I knew that you meant it, that you meant it
