Look! Another vague blogpost about abstract situations!
All kidding aside, I have no idea what this post is about. I just want to write.
It's a bizarre time of year. Although, I tend to always think every time of the year is strange.
It's still summer and yet it doesn't quite feel like it. I'm incredibly eager for fall to start and there's still about a month to go. It's a cycle that I've found myself going through the past couple of years. August rolls around and it seems to stick around longer than it should.
It's also been the month where everything in life decides to pile up.
This week has been filled with not only busyness but also some less than stellar news involving a couple members of my family. Details that I'll keep to myself for the time being.
But despite the bad news, life presses on. And with every season, there are countless things to celebrate.
I'm in a band with some of the most wonderful and fun people I know. We put out an album in May and making it was one of my favorite musical experiences ever. I even documented the entire process.
I've been able to spend some more quality time with my parents. The three of us have shared more dinners together in the last two months than I think we have since I graduated high school.
A new job has been keeping me busy and providing me an income to not only pay my bills but also save for the future.
I've gotten some decently paying work doing freelance video projects; the field that I went to college for.
Over the last few weeks I've had the opportunity to reconnect and catch up with friends who I haven't spent nearly as much time with as I would have liked to this summer.
And what I'm most excited about, a third album that's in the works which I am hoping will be ready by fall.
Every season has good and bad. We can either choose to dwell on the negative or celebrate the positive. Heck, as tough as it may seem, we can choose to celebrate the negative as well, but I think that is a blogpost for another day.
Good situations make for good stories, but the worst situations make for the best.
