yesterday mackenzie turned 22. we went roller skating, bought jellies that smell like childhood memories, drank tequila and SQUIRT, and had sing-a-longs until 3 in the morning. we embraced our youth and it was perfect and fitting.
|i adore this woman.|
(circa 18 years old)
in other news, i'm almost done with my undergraduate career. i have one paper, one take-home final, and a biology final left and this whole phase of life is over. i have been extremely up and down with this phase. one moment i'm elated, the next moment i'm crying and feeling aimless. i guess i'm experiencing premature post-grad woes. i'm sure there are many more transition posts to come. but for now, i'm feeling good about all of it.
I've had these songs on repeat as of this past week:
Van Morrison- Brown Eyed Girl
Ben E. King- Stand By Me
The Proclaimers- I'm Gonna Be
Stealer's Wheel- Stuck in the Middle with You
Billy Joel- Only the Good Die Young
Brandi Carlisle- Have You Ever
A.C. Newman- Prophets
Labi Siffre- Bless the Telephone
It's all slightly random but it's been keeping me comforted and refreshed.
i'd be happy to move here post-graduation.
