May will always my favorite. All seasons are easy to handle here in LA, but there's still a little extra something to appreciate about the month of May. Everything feels refreshing :)
I've been looking deep into time that's flown by lately. Everything after 6th grade has gone by quickly, sometimes so quickly that I feel like it didn't even happen at all. The only things I really pull from years past are songs and seemingly insignificant memories. I don't care about things that I did, I care about songs I heard when I was sitting on my parent's floor on a rainy day in July. That's what I remember because those are the things that have seemed to shape me more than other experiences. I remember feelings and sounds very clearly from almost any point in my life, and I can't say the same for other types of perception.
All this sci-fi talk from my last post (and a Facebook status about it too) has rekindled my love affair with the "trust no one" attitude. A friend suggested a book on Area 51 and though I'm not really the type to geek out about the government or aliens or anything like that (just relevant TV shows lol) I ordered it from Amazon and am excited to read it. Plus, it's been a while since I've read a good book. In fact, it's been since Christmas, when BV got me Sport by Louise Fitzhugh: book 3 in the little series about Harriet The Spy. He knows me so well...
I made this playlist. This stuff has been ON REPEAT lately. I don't mean a few plays a day, I mean I won't listen to anything else, and it plays all day long. I never do that! It's a really good playlist, kids. Give it a listen.
