it's always weird for me when i hear a different version of a song
that was very prominent in another time in my life
i just experienced that with
i really dug that song when i first heard it two years ago
and have ever since.
i immediately loved the piano and the lyrics and the
moving, moving, moving rhythm.
it's a perfect car ride song
because it just goes, goes, goes
and i listened to it quite a bit that year,
and hearing a new daytrotter-y version of it got my thinking
about how much has changed
since i latched onto modern drift in early 2010
2010 was a year of very big decisions for me
2011 was a year of enacting those very big decisions
and now it's 2012
and i'm just living
just doing my reading for classes
planning sexy-book-club meetings
obsessing over the pens
and listening to a new version of efterklang's modern drift
on this unforgivably cold saturday
my point is that i've always been a planner
always been thinking two days, five years, broad strokes ahead
(and i still am to a degree
because i have a lot left in my life i want to accomplish)
but it's just nice to have a few months of downtime
to enjoy the current place my life is in
before the next wave of decisions comes my way.
basically i'm enjoying this time i have right now to just
oversee + legislate + regulate my life
before i have to start campaigning again this fall
how's your weekend?
