Then spring became the summer

Friday, June 10, 2011

This year seems to be flying by. It was only in February that I started paying any attention to Jordan Knight. It was in March that I bought NKOTBSB tickets for June. In April, I gained another year and started something with someone. May was the start of a very musical month and the beginning of the end of something I started with someone. And now it's June and my NKOTBSB concert is next week and soon it'll be December.

Sometimes it's hard on the emotions to anticipate something so badly, because whether we like it or not, each second, minute, hour is the same length of time whether we are in love or in despair. Over the years I've tried to combat this "problem" by muting my feelings a little, or by doing a lot of rationalizing of how I feel. This isn't the answer either. I've been searching for balance, and some days I feel like maybe I'm getting somewhere. Someday I hope to learn how to live fully in the moment and appreciate it for what it is.

It's been awfully hot here over the past few days, and it's not even summer yet. Here are some photos from the past few weeks ...

The sun this morning, at 6 a.m.


Another version of what I saw out my window this morning


And another


This was the lighting at Jordan Knight's album release party in May.
It looked really cool in person, I swear.


I don't know if I've ever said this, but I am mildly obsessed with Sweden.
I may be one of the few non-Swedes who regularly orders the gravlax at IKEA's cafe.


... while my father sticks to the safe Swedish meatballs plate.


I ate at Salt and Fat restaurant last Friday and saw "Midnight in Paris" last night, so "reviews" of both are coming up once I stop being such a narcoleptic. I blame the weather!
