jams (#1)

This isn’t about different types of jam. It’s about one of my favorite things…MUSIC! I love music. Spotify Premium is one of the best gifts that I’ve ever gotten (thanks, Mom). I listen to music every single day and my earbuds are in my ears at least an hour every day. AT LEAST. I have a pretty diverse music taste. I like almost all music even if I don’t listen to it (except metal and country. Never country). So my favorite genres are pretty well-known. I like pop-hip hop-alternative. Not in that exact order. Lately I have been really jumping around in terms of music. I wanted to make a Spotify playlist but I decided to make a YouTube playlist so you can choose the specific song you want to hear if you don’t have Premium. If you want a Spotify playlist you can email me at dahliasorchid@gmail.com. But let’s talk about the songs on this playlist.

First I want to just post the link to my favorite album in a while. Mind Of Mine by Zayn is a really good album. You can listen to it here. Warning: some songs have some inappropriate language.


^my brother and my friend both thought that he actually had tattoos that young.

Now onto the actual playlist. The starter for the pop section of the playlist is an upbeat, song called Lush Life by Zara Larrson. I never heard of Zara until just a few weeks ago but I’m liking the songs I’ve heard by her so far.

Also in this playlist we have Pity Party by Melanie Martinez, LIKE I WOULD by Zayn, Dangerous Woman by Ariana Grande, Wild Things by Alessia Cara, Cheap Thrills by Sia, Roses by the Chainsmokers (feat. ROZES), Middle by DJ Snake (feat. Bipolar Sunshine), and Sugar by Robin Shulz (feat. Francesco Yates).

Here is the full playlist. 

was going to do a hip hop and alternative section but I realized that most mainstream hip hop songs don’t have the best language and I don’t have that many alt jams this month. But I am really like Needed Me by Rihanna but I didn’t put that on the list because it would seem out of place because of the language. It’s a really good song and I suggest you listen to it.

Right now my favorite artists are Zayn, Alessia Cara, and Melanie Martinez. They all have great songs and you should listen to those songs.

If you’re wondering why I say “jam” so much is mostly because (and you can ask my family about this) every single time a song I like comes on I say “this is my jam.” Every song.

Well that’s it for this Monday! I hope you all enjoyed this music-filled post. See you next Monday!

p.s. or maybe I’ll see you in a surprise post sometime this week. Who knows.



Wednesday walk

Hello guys and welcome to my blog! The day I want to post will typically be Monday, but to kick things off, I thought I’d do an actual post.
Today felt really nice, so after math and working on some homework, I went for a walk through my neighborhood. I take these walks almost daily. I was out for about an hour and the pollen had mercy on me and didn’t try to kill me like it did yesterday. I’m not very much of an outdoor person. I don’t like the bugs, but there were only some bees and flies out today. While out on this walk I decided to take a few pictures of the nature. 


I took that right outside of my house. It’s not a very high quality photo (it was taken with my iPhone camera). I used a flower identifier and it said that these flowers are called Sweet Almonds (the scientific name is Prunus Dulcis). They’re so pretty and seemed to grow overnight.

I started walking some more, and came across a woodsy area. I sat here for a bit to take a few pictures.



IMG_5379.jpgThere were a few cute benches, and a lot of grass. It’s a quiet area and really peaceful.

Now onto the playground.

I go to this playground almost everyday. It has 2 swings and I always swing for a bit while listening to music. The woods extend to the playground so I got a few shots there.


The next  photo was taken while I was swinging.


On the way back from my walk was another tree with pretty flowers.

These flowers are called Common Pears according to my flower identification app. They are like pear trees without the pear from what I can see.

So that was my mini photo-shoot! It was a nice walk, and I got a few good photos (that look better thanks to Lightroom). I hope you enjoyed this post enough to come back! 🙂


Welcome to my blog! My name is Kendra and I am relatively new to this blogging thing. I’ve used Google Blogger and made a website a few years ago (it did not work out if you’re wondering). I also have another blog that isn’t great and it’s only for a class. That isn’t the same as having a blog you can use for your own self-expression. I want this blog to really represent me and who I am as a writer and a person. This blog will be about a lot of things. I have a lot of ideas and interests and this blog is supposed to represent me, so it’s going to have a lot of different topics.

So let’s see…what are some things you’ll need to know about me? I am mostly an average teen. I love hanging out with my friends, music, movies, books, social media, the average things teens like. I also like to write (stories and scripts), filmmaking, photography, and fashion and beauty. On the other hand I’m not a typical teen. I don’t go to a…traditional school.

This is a really short blog post, I know, but we’re not quite done yet. I’m going to (TRY) to post every Monday. Possibly more, depending on if anything interesting happens in my life. I’ll be posting multiple times this week to get this blog started so please stay tuned for actually entertaining posts!

p.s. if you’re wondering about my blog name title, it’s the name of two pretty flowers (dahlias and orchids) since no name really fits this blog exactly.
