as i've found with most areas of my life i am an extremely obsessive person. i find a fun new activity, person, whatever, and all of the sudden my life becomes completely devoted to that "whatever." plainly put, i need balance, stability, direction...right? graduated from college i think it is slowly setting in how much control i have over where my life goes; it is a little overwhelming.
however, my obsessive personality is still getting the better of me, and i'm really on the fence with this whole stability thing. i do what i want...i do what makes me happy...live without fear...love without remorce sort of thing. sounds like it should be coming from a meryl streep movie or something.
you should easily notice my patterns for blogging. i started off with a bang. then came senior year of college...now i picked up hockey...put away the guitar and drums...i'm sure i'll rebound and pick those up again even though it's been two months since i've played and i haven't taken a break that long for five years straight. as mr. dylan said, the times, they are a'changin'. i feel for the better. maybe "reality" is sinking in and i'm learning what place in the world i am supposed to take. but i refuse to follow that pattern.
so far this summer i have seen so many good shows...dmb, paramore, no doubt, ziggy marley, 311 to name...well, all of them. so good! i have a job...unemployment was one of the worst feelings ever. i was jobless for two months and nearly lost my mind. there are so many things to be thankful for right? emma thompson and kenneth branagh are brilliant actors!

It may be terrible but I have developed a new obsession with a band, 30 Seconds to Mars. I am worried to admit this because I Hate emo. This band bears a striking resemblance to everything about this "genre" of "music."
Notice the 3/4 part with the dark hair crowding their pain-filled faces. The look is stupid, juvenile, and pathetic. However, I can't deny that I have been enjoying their music for the past 12 hours.
I've just returned from a week long trip in the A with the love of my life. I got to see plenty of cool things like the Georgia Aquarium, Wonderful World of Coke, Marley and Me, and do plenty of ice skating with the love of my life. Guard Girl and I celebrated our 2nd anniversary over the break and the trip was awesome. Check out this picture...
