FAWM, round two! I still don't really know what I'm doing, but that's okay! I never actually do.

As things stand now, I will probably have quite a few political protest songs, but hopefully there'll be some filk in the mix as well. Expect strangeness and silliness and snark and references to fandoms, but don't be surprised when you're also inundated with lots of Very Strong Feelings.

In addition to all of this, I *am* taking 17 hours of classes and also working and I do like seeing my friends sometimes, so I highly doubt I'll make it to 14 songs. But if I end up with at least one good one, that'll be one song I wouldn't have had otherwise, and that's a win in my book!

I consider myself first and foremost to be a poet; songwriting is actually a fairly new thing for me and I'm still trying to get used to being less long-winded. I play lots of instruments and will probably include some of them in my songs, but I really do love my trusty ukulele. 😀 #FUC

    Hector the space rat, he flew in outer space
    Spaceships aren't cool, and elves work for Santa
    Hector the space rat, he made it back alive
    And didn't die of what's that disease again?
