I want to make sure I use lameyland as a writing outlet. I struggle to get pen to paper (figuratively) so to combat that, I want to to start a small series called “Some things I:” where I just get things off my chest, in category form. So.
Halloween is so endearing to me this year. It’s made me so happy to see everyone dressing up and putting in the effort to be silly and not take themselves too seriously. Especially with the messiness of the world these days… it’s been a nice break the last few days.

I’m back on the interweb, WATCH OUT! I took roughly 6 weeks off to gather my thoughts, ideas, and intentions. I felt like I was getting a tad rushed/hurried through the posts, which is not what I consider a good time.
It’s the beginning of the month, so it’s time to share my monthly playlist! I don’t know if it’s been properly expressed yet so I will say it: I love music very much. New bands and releases, old songs that my parents love, nostalgic music that are from all parts of my life, groups that I feel a personal connection to… I am into it allllllllllll.
So I compiled all the songs that meant something to me in the month of May. This is actually really fun because when I listen to the playlist, hearing each song reminds me of what I was doing when I decided to add it or why it stuck out to me!
I was going to share some posts this past week while I was at home, but I was honestly just having too much fun and being busy seeing my friends and family to post anything. And I’m ok with that.
For now, I want to share my time at home. I was only home for about 9 days, but I got to see just about everyone I love and do a lot of very fun things. My first thought was a longer post, writing more about my feelings and what not – but I’ll save that for later. Here are my photos.
This morning I spent time watching Harry Styles on SNL/reading his Rolling Stones article, which led me to feel nostalgic and watch a bunch of One Direction interviews and funny clips, and then I ended just listening to all their albums all afternoon and night. Basically I spent the day with One Direction. Honestly I wish I could explain the effect they have on my heart… BUT I CAN’T! It’s just too special. It seems trivial and teen-y and juvenile, but the amount I care about that is very much nothing at all.
“The most important sentence in any article is the first one. If it doesn’t induce the reader to proceed to the second sentence, your article is dead.”
So…. no pressure.
I read that somewhere. While googling how to make a blog. But honestly, if the reader is gone by now, I don’t care. My feelings are impermeable. Just kidding, I cry when Usher comes on the radio.
My name is Amy, but Lamey is preferred. It just sounds funny, doesn’t it? It started as a social media nickname and somehow came to life. I decided to start a blog, and I knoooow tons of people are doing it, but why does that mean I can’t?
So the blog is called lameyland, a land of all things Lamey. All things me. This is really all about me. I decided to go against what I’ve been doing for basically 23 years (holding in my emotions and ideas and deepest thoughts) and express all of my emotions and ideas and deepest thoughts. Ok, maybe not all the emotional stuff, but I want to share a lot of my thoughts, my pictures, my travels, my music interests, my ideas about living a green, sustainable life, and in general, how to live a life in the lamest way possible. And that’s a good thing.
Anyway, there’s going to be 4 main categories for the time being:
4. Be Lame
They are the 4 areas I care about the most! I think what would work best is if I posted a small intro post about each section during the next week or so. Am I thinking out loud/into this post? Is that how you blog?
It’s all a work in progress, I’m definitely not prepared enough to start this, I’m never going to be prepared enough, I’m going to change everything, let’s just get going.
