It is as it sounds. I mean I learned a lot of stuff on guitar, and I got better, but what else? I stayed the exact same weight I was in May. I got a fender stratocaster finally, and its amazing. I played guitar everyday, and sang. My voice sounds a lot better too. And I did a lot of personal thinking. Oh, and I really killed my video game addiction. I went on 2 trips, one with family, one with a friend. Both were great. We had a family reunion with my fathers fiances family, so we could get to know everybody. That was awesome. I’m gonna have a lot of cool uncles…and one hot aunt (not related in any way, of course. She’s Indian actually). I’m a lot better friends with my brothers, through lots of…experiences. Same goes for my sister, not sure why, but yeah. Really for my entire family.
I also got over the girl I thought I loved. Not completely. I really don’t think anyone ever gets over another person entirely. Even with girlfriends I didn’t like a whole lot way back when! I think its because you give them your trust and love, and when they go away, they take some of it away. And the only way to get it back is to love someone else. I have a Love/Hate relationship with love. Love is like snow. Its only good when it sticks. Other wise its just mushy and cold and ruins your day. And you can’t go sledding.
I like that metaphor. Cheesy, but everyone loves some good cheese secretly.
I thought about a lot of stuff. Life. Religion. Love.
What do I want to do? Do I want to be a musician? Do I want to find love? Am I really christian? Do I need to micromanage my image?
Thats always been my biggest flaw. I always was too detailed and over-the-top. Very self-conscious. Low self-esteem. All these questions were to much. Now I’ve never seen Lost, but goddammit it felt like an episode of that shit; 100 new questions and no fucking answers.
In the end, I got some answers. Yes, I want to be a musician. I just need to go on a journey to find out more about myself. I need more experience and more information and inspiration.
Do I want to find true love? Of course I do. I just don’t know if it will meet me halfway. Until then, on the inside, I’m lonely.
What do I want to do with my life? Inspire others, be remembered, and make the world a little less dim and foggy for everyone.
Do I have a religion? Yes, I do. I’m christian. It was hard for a while, because my history teacher really fucked my head up with a lot of stuff from the past. I realize now there is dirt on everything, no matter how much you’d like to imagine there isn’t. Its the vain people that messed with my perception, not the base ideals. Which Is why I’m not terribly enthusiastic about reading the bible. Everything is perceived wrongly. Or maybe I’m wrong. Any way you want it, I beleive in God.
I’m no longer micromanaging things. I’m done analyzing everything. I’m more determined and confident. I have more balls. Also, much more ignorant. But I wasn’t at all before, so, what the hell. I’ll try the baby out!!
I feel like I’ve done nothing this summer, but I’ve had one of the most times of my life. I did everything this summer.
