I debated posting this on Google Plus, but what the hell…
Last summer, when the Hold Steady played Constructive Summer live, I turned to my friend GKKD, and in my slightly buzzed state, I told him that it would be my theme song for the summer. These lines, in particular, stood out as a motto:
Let this be my annual reminder
That we can all be something bigger
I was off by a little bit in terms of predicting when this summer would occur for I was in too broken of a place in the middle of 2010 to make that happen. Essentially, after May, I was on auto-pilot for rest of 2010.
This year, however, is different. Although it’s technically no longer summer, NorCal’s Indian summer allows me to lengthen the season by a couple of months, and I can say that I definitely built up my own happiness this year. I won’t go into detail, but I’ve just been excited about being able to learn again, and to learn in an area that interests me. I must strive to maintain this happiness, but I’m thankful that I’ve had this summer to put myself on the right path, or at least, what feels like the right path.
