“The last melon”. Only the real ones know. Week 14 and I’m finally done blogging.
Whew, this has been such a whirlwind of emotions, ideas, and dedication. There’s been many ups and downs but all great careers oscillate high low. Audacious and shamelessly persevering, the battle has been won. The battle does not pertain to blogging but also the end of another school year. This past orbit contains some of my more reckless and daring decisions, but also some clarity. #LiveAboveTheClouds.
I think as time goes on, our awareness intensifies but at the price of our innocence. Lately nostalgic memories of my childhood have played through my head. I loved to play “army”, legoes, and other games but I can’t anymore. It’s not that my curiosities slipped but I can’t seem to get the same satisfaction out of legoes when there’s constant destruction, nor war when there’s Dick Cheney. Im pretty pumped for Summer but at the same time Summer can be kinda worrisome. It’s 2-3 months of compulsive eating and unsupervised, irrational decisions.
I think that we should just have a year around school with more, longer breaks. 9 months of school then 3 straight months of break isn’t sustainable. Our little breaks we have throughout the year are kind of like weed and everyone gets happy and has a good time but then all of a sudden we get 3 months of heroine, knowing your gonna have to go back to rehab for 9 more months. It’s too much time on our hands for such a short amount of time. But, Summer can also be really nice. Lights being absorbed at arguably the best angle which has enormous benefit. Everyone is usually in better moods and there’s also less stress depending on how demanding your commitments. I am really excited to go explore nature this Summer and I’m hoping I’ll get to see some plants and animals that I’ve never seen before.
It’s also ok if I see plants and animals I regularly see because I like most of them. One plant I hate is the green weed that has all of those little white needles and you can’t see if they get on your leg but if they do then it fucking sucks. I hope everyone has fun staying safe this summer haha.
The days are longer and the weather has ripened. Fruit is now eaten scrupulously yet with vigor. The beach is inviting and warm. It is summer. I enjoy summer so much. But it’s spring time now and the beaches are getting warmer and the days are very blue. I love Spring because it is now more common to see the other tenants of nature and often in the evening I will see a deer. All of my family came into town last Friday and on Saturday We went out to an Italian restaurant and ate Italian food for a hour and a half. Everyone enjoyed their meals and company was in good spirits. I went to a friend’s house circa 9:00 P.M and then went home and had a good nights sleep. On Sunday, I went on a hike with my mom, brothers, sister, and dad.
It was for mothers day and everyone had a great time. This past week I also had the honor to see the great Omar Souleyman. I can now attest to to the magical myths once spoken of he, himself. He played great music and the crowd was out of their mind. The week could realistically only go downhill from there but since Monday, I’ve enjoyed other activities. On Wednesday, I went to the Habit and got some food before going to the beach with some of my friends. While we were at the beach, we played some intense games os spike ball and threw around the frisbee.
After playing on the sand, we went in the water and had a super fun time body surfing and messing around. The waves were pretty good and nobody else was out so we had them all to ourselves. We all then began to get hungry and so we left the beach and all went to our own houses to get some food. When I got home I had pork and noodles which was a really satisfying meal. I also ate some dessert because I’m a real sweet tooth and then I called it a night. I also played with my dogs.
Walking around on Wednesday, thought it’d sit down and write about my days in the month of May. I’ve been listening to a lot of music lately and recently I’ve found sanction in the beats of “Drug Cabin”. Don’t let the name give you the wrong idea because they’re a great band for all highs, lows, activities, and moods. They drop soft lyrics over all different kinds of sounds. Also, ALO is always a good option. This past weekend I hungout with my friends and had a pretty good time.
We played around all over area and I covered a lot of the Santa Barbara ground. I didn’t to go to the beach because it was cold and overcast so that was kind of a bummer but it’s ok cause its almost summer and I’ll have a lot of time to play in the sand and stuff. I also didn’t throw the frisbee this weekend but i’m pretty sure that wont affect my abilities this weekend. On Tuesday I played Taylor 1v1 for about ten minutes and I lost. I was winning and we said “next point wins” and he pulled the smoothest stepback i’ve ever seen and drained the shot in my face. Sike. I gave him like 10 feet of space and he threw up an off-balanced, “lean back” shot cause it wasnt even a fadeway and he made it. I respectively took the loss and then Me, him, Ryan, Cole, and Quinn went on a hike.
We went to Rattlesnake Canyon and hiked for about 30 minutes then jambled around in the creek. There was a pretty large pool of water that me and Quinn went into and it was revitalizing. The ice cold water cleansed my body.
Mother Earth’s bodily fluids. We continued to chill at the spot for about forty-five minutes but then started our trek back. It was a nice hike filled with some good talks and i know that that hike will fuel me for the rest of the week. We then went to our homes and I ate salmon and sweet potatoes and broccoli for dinner. I also had a lot of chocolate fudge ice cream and some toast.
