downloading music sometimes requires so much effort...finding torrents, waiting for downloads, converting files from FLAC/MP4 when they are in those, checking/fixing metadata, syncing...probably way less work to just pay for the music.
i don't think i have to point out how incredibly perfect bassnectar was, but let me do that anyway.
forecast predicted thunderstorms from 5pm through the end of the night. no rain. fireworks before bassnectar's set. i get separated from the group before his set starts and nestle myself near some okay lookin' people. we popped a pill about an hour before this set. i'm feelin' okay, can't stop dancing. bassnectar is going. about 10:30, he plays Butterfly (i think it was butterfly) and I am sooo intent on the screen. There is a slo mo video of a butterfly and then people skydiving. It was the most beautiful few minutes. I can't keep my mouth closed. All of a sudden, rain starts coming down. I want to cry but I can't stop smiling. The light bounces off the rain in the loveliest way. It rains for maybe 15 minutes and I don't give a fuck if I'm getting wet. I'm dancing with people, high fiving, holding a hand once or twice. He played the remix of Where is my mind. I couldn't believe it. It stops raining for pretty much the entire night and starts again at the end of the set. set ended with a remix of lucy in the sky with diamonds/about 20 seconds of basshead. perfect combination of raging and sensi times. mmmm beautiful.
So alive, so in love with life.
I came home, hugged my parents and told them I loved them because I do.
3.17miles in 34:47.
pushing myself, getting better, feeling good.
feeling less lazy about making runs happen.
not exactly eating well or losing weight, but feeling good about running.
there is a great southwest sale going on right now, but i'm making myself not travel during summer and keep telling myself i don't know where i'll be come autumn. holding back. meerrrr.
it's interesting how quickly you can miss something or someone. and how quickly moments become memories. it all happens so fast.
making progress, feeling good.
may or may not have just booked a flight to seattle.
