Adulthood really hit me hard and completely knocked me off the blogging bandwagon. I’ve been wanting to get back to arbitrarily selecting songs for days recently, but early May is a minefield of holidays (May Day, primary Tuesday, May the Fourth, Cinco de Mayo).
As kind of an ironic nod to the fact that I haven’t blogged since August, I picked a song called August. After this, I’m going to try to Pick songs that are May-themed, but this month will probably also be kinda LDR-themed, as my life continues to be LDR-themed.
This song is better listened to with earbuds than speakers. Not sure why.
Also, it’s May the Fourth be with you (yay puns), so I have this, which brings me endless amusement when I listen to it:
And this, also funny, which reminds me of high school:
Down goes the speed of the productivity Electricity
And reliant technology
Down go the hopes and away the dreams
Lying to yourself
In good time laying down may help
Now, though, press on
Enough, but disregard the time till dawn”
“I love deadlines. I love the whooshing noise they make as they go by.”

Five months and one day ago, I scheduled a study session with a friend at the library.
I thought about Picking this song then, as a sort of hint, but then I decided I was done hinting. (I was also a bit concerned about the lyrics in this song that imply other people and cheating, because that’s not what this was/is/will be about)
Later that day I decided I was done trying to make things more than they were. I didn’t put in my contacts, didn’t put on makeup, didn’t brush my hair, because I figured it didn’t matter.
And as it turned out, it didn’t. Just not in the way I expected.
Also, I know they’re sometimes gray, and sometimes blue, but usually green. Like mine.
