「TIME CHANGES EVERYTHING」takes us all the way back to 2008, where skinny jeans, heavy music, and colored hair were abundant. This is where we meet the humble beginnings of Playing With Fire, who are stuck in a seemingly constant carousel of changing members with the exceptions of the brazenly eccentric Erin Edgars and perpetual womanizer Noah Haley.
Along with the duo that kept Playing with Fire glued together, we meet the complicated Mathew "Matty" Cullen, the talented guitarist and vocalist for the rapidly-ascending Hollower.
Then there was the key that brought together all three of the musicians. The formerly homeless, skateboard-wielding Alessa Howard. After a string of events at home, Alessa is all but left alone on the streets. While resorting to the only option she had to fill her stomach, she unwittingly follows the talented Mathew Cullen into the world of music, where she not only discovers her passion, but meets another few specials friends - and more.
But what happens when tragedy strikes the band?
Will they fall apart, or will they come back stronger than before? How will Alessa handle herself when her demons start returning to shore, will she trying to bury them again or will she face them head on? What will Alessa do when life decides to throw her another curveball, will she reject that curveball or will she accept it with open arms? Will time heal their wounds?
Can time truly change everything?

As a lone brother and sister pair, Tyler and his younger sister Megan are forced to survive. The hardships of the "grown-up" world, the dark reality of drugs and alcohol, the loneliness and cruelty of teenage social problems hits them with its full force. The world isn't kind to strangers.This is a story written a little differently. It's a story of a brother and sister and the hardships they face. The dynamics of their relationships with each other and the people around them. The whole story is written in the form of notes and diary entries. I wrote it to tackle issues that I see every day. Things I've encountered with my friends, and things I see in the lives of strangers. The world is harsh and cruel, and in our conditioned reality where we only see what we want, we can end up being cruel towards someone who's pain we don't understand.
