I've been trying to explain how much the songs from this EP composed by 18yo Jimi Somewhere mimic the exact wave of chaos, self-doubt and nostalgia that has been flooding my mind lately. I've tried and I've failed, the snippets of my life felt too personal somehow. Ironic. I've spent 7 years sharing things about me, about my life, tweeting, snapping, instagraming... And now I just want to lock all the bits and pieces away, for them to be mine and only mine.

Looking back on it, I think sharing so much was part of me building myself up and now that I feel confident enough in myself and who I am, I don't need people's validation as much. The internet helped me so much though, in a time where everything was blurry, a time where I didn't feel like I was enough, or too much, a time where I didn't even know who I was, I remember being able to be the person I wanted to be. I never lied, but I experimented, I made mistakes, I learned.

I'm still learning.

Now, tomorrow and forever.
