Absolution Calling

Let me tell you a little fact about myself: I love Incubus. I have been a fan ever since I saw their video for “Drive” on a VH1 music video countdown when I was 11. My brother gave me their album Morning View for Christmas that year, and thirteen years later, that album title inspired the name of this blog. And now they’re coming out with a new song tomorrow.

No matter how much I start to love other bands and new music, Incubus will always be my “If I were stuck on a desert island and could only listen to one band” choice. Their lyrics inspire my writing, and Brandon Boyd is still the most beautiful person I have ever seen.

If you’re unfamiliar with Incubus, I recommend listening to Wish You Were Here or Stellar.

Infinitely Interesting

That’s the domain I originally wanted to purchase for my blog: infinitely interesting.

Not only is it a lyric from one of my favorite Incubus songs, it describes what I strive to be. As a writer and comedy enthusiast, I look for different ways to be interesting. I’m constantly inspired by the women of YouTube who create such beautiful videos, whether it be a makeup tutorial, styling video, or short sketch. I am also enamored by female writers and anyone who shares who they are online. It’s a scary place.

I decided on the name “Morning Ink” thanks to Incubus’s album Morning View. It’s a great album and one I highly recommend for budding writers. It inspired quite a few stories in my youth. I decided on “Ink” because I’m a writer.

Ok, outfit time.

Shoes: Sam Edelman (simple gold version here) (snake print)
Necklace: Baublebar (similar here)

I wouldn’t take this Baublebar necklace off to save my life. It’s so pretty. I wish I could buy one for all of you but sadly it’s no longer available on the website.

Wearing pleated chambray and a floral tank may seem a little too premature for spring, but it’s only in the 70’s today! Houston has had (frustratingly) weird weather lately. I hate love it.

Have a great Sunday and thank you for reading.
