about today.

Today you were far away
and I didn't ask you why.
What could I say?
I was far away.

"About Today"

there are so many things i could say. so many things that i want to say. yet i am floating in a summer that has trapped my words inside my soul. almost as if i let them out, i will lose them. and i don't want to lose them.

Now Playing: ME

My favorite part of going to a movie is watching the previews. Even crappy movies look awesome with a good trailer. The voiceovers, the music, the drama, the action, the anticipation... I love it. Why? I don't know why. Why are McDonald's cheeseburgers so delicious?

Previews, recommendations, hot tips, taste tests, warnings, horoscopes, coming soons... I'm a sucker for these things. As such, I try to share things I love with people sometimes. And maybe it's because I am not an expert in any one area that people don't really love what I'm sharing... and maybe it's ridiculous that I get mad when people don't thank me for changing their lives with a song... but I still try. And I am still immeasurably happy when someone feels the same way I do about a band or show or restaurant or color or movie or ice cream flavor.

So what's the next big thing? What is this summer's blockbuster? ME. That's right. This year is quickly shaping up to be an amazing time for me. I feel more like myself than ever. Chloe, old friends, new friends, siblings, Smokin' Sundays, BluBlockers, music, vacations... there is a certain feeling of newness and happiness in all these things.

"And the thing is, it's hard not to look good in BluBlockers."
