"I feel like your indecisiveness has fucked with my mind. To the point I feel like I’m crazy at times. Nights ago I even thought how wonderful it’d be to kiss you right after you smoked a cigarette. The nicotine taste fresh on your lips against mine. I hate what you’ve done to me."
I feel like time is slipping through my hands. More on that in a bit. I’m glad I got together with some friends on Saturday. It was exactly what I needed. I had a fun night. I need more nights like before I pack up and leave this place. Yesterday was a disappointment. I had a ticket to the Gary Clark Jr. show in Pittsburgh, but the snow ruined my plans. I was looking forward to seeing him in a smaller venue. He’ll probably never play one that size again. It was out of my control though.
I listened to The Upsides this morning. I was originally going to see The Wonder Years on Saturday in Cleveland, but that isn’t happening now. That’s pretty disappointing. I’ve really felt a connection to their new album, The Greatest Generation. A lot of it is about overcoming personal struggles to become the best version of you. Sound familiar? I was looking forward to seeing all or nearly all of the album played at the show, especially, “The Bastards, The Vultures, The Wolves” and “Dismantling Summer.” I love those two a lot. It’s a masterpiece of an album.
Back to my first sentence. I feel like the weeks are passing by at an alarming rate. It’s already March, and June is eerily close to my doorstep. I want to move; I need to do this. I’m going to miss so many people though. The scary thing is I don’t if or when I’ll be back. Hopefully I’ll be moving forward in my career in roughly a year and a half and won’t need to come back here. As a place, I don’t want to be here anymore, but I treasure the relationships I’ve made here. It’s almost as if the chapter isn’t finished, but in a few months, it doesn’t matter if it’s finished or not, it’s ending. It seems like there’s no closure. It’s the kind of thing that gives me nightmares.

If I may a little vain for a moment. My abs looked great this weekend. I’ve been working out more, and I definitely noticed the results this weekend. I’m very pleased with the way my body looks.
