Hullo friends!

Lyfe:

I am headed into my senior year of university at the rip old age of 23! I'm still quite glad that I took two years off, it gave me a chance to get to know myself, you know? It's weird going back. I'm annoyed with the prospect of academics, which I find almost 7 times out of 10 to be an obstacle to learning rather than an aid.

For example, I learned more this summer interning at a video production company than I have in the past three years at school. Then again I get very impatient with inefficient structures, which I find school to often be. Plus college in America is definitly in a transitional stage due to more people than ever going... I could probably rant about this for ages but it's kinda boring, isn't it?

Anyway it's weird because on the one hand my summer (the best one of my life) made me feel like I was already out of school and living in the real world. So on the one hand I already feel "grown up" so to speak, so it's weird to be going back to school, YET at the same time when I think about not being in school any more I find that thought extremely odd.

It feels like a very transitional period. There's stability and uncertainty all at once. I'm excited, but also know that it's very easy for me to get bored. If there's one thing I need, it's new challenges.

Media:

Currently I am watching the pilot of Game of Thrones. I've heard many good things but never see before. I have a policy that I give shows at least one try, and this is the one try. I'm about 13 minutes in, so it's probably too soon to give a verdict, but it looks decent.

Team Fortress 2: I am obsessed with this video game and have been for three years. This isn't anything new, but I do think it's impressive that I haven't gotten bored with it! I love it so much.

In music, I'm currently liking the new Panic At the Disco! Album, and I'm digging "Rather Be" by Clean Bandit, Maps by Maroon 5... the transient pop music. I'm also contemplating getting a spotify account, but I just don't know. Hrm.

Writing has always been important to me, but lately I haven't been doing it very much. Sometimes I feel like writing and I have a love/hate relationship. I've somewhat given up on novels, focusing on short stories and flash, yet there's still an appeal. There will always be an appeal. Yet, mere appeal is not enough to follow through into action, you know?

This summer I've been living in Chicago, (which is about two hours from my parent's house), working at a video and media production company. I chose to study in this field when I came to college because it's another way of telling stories, and there's a real connection to people. There's energy and quick feedback. I struggle with writing alone for hours and not getting much feedback.

I've got one more year of school left. I'll always keep writing, and I do wish I could more easily write longer works, but for now I'm satisfied. Perhaps when I get older and less restless I'll do more writing.

God flowering in March
the tree bells together music
this borrowed kiss will hold.
I need to become tears as
something old until: roses.
The cathedral opens my
very present union.
You cut or tie
and night joined us
fresh vows and a blue city
I am asunder;
her eyes.
