Doing it up old school.

Doing it up old school.

So it’s been brought to my attention by my parents that I should write, in an attempt to ward off this ever-looming insanity that I harbor. Cool. I guess my biggest problem recently has been the lack of sufficient outlets for the amount of stuff I have to say sometimes.
For example, I’ve recently have been getting into alot of new music. Mainly indie/hipster stuff that wouldn’t appeal to a wide spectrum of people. I keep a playlist on Spotify of my most recent favorites called Projekts. I update it regularly a move stuff around depending on my day-to-day tastes. A few notables that I need to mention are James Vincent McMorrow who has a great kinda smoky and rough sound. James Morrison has an awesome new CD. Alexi Murdoch is a guy that I always liked but never gave a fair shake. However, now he’s been getting alot of play. Especially his Song for You off of the album Time Without Consequence. Other than that its been alot of really niche songs that are kinda weird I must admit. 
On the video games side I bought Dark Souls. Man… I should have bought Arkham City instead. I’m easily discouraged sometimes and Dark Souls is not for the weak-willed. I made it past the first boss just fine, but a little further on these ghost-like things stretched across the whole screen to hug me to death. Needless to say I haven’t played since. Most of my free time usually consists of playing soo much Borderlands (again?) while watching Big Bang Theory or Family Guy on my laptop. How exciting… 
Oh and Jess just broke off our “thing” a couple of hours ago. Then she drove to pick up my wallet and keys I left at Ben’s last night. Afterwards, she came in and we watched Family Guy for a couple of hours while I played the aforementioned Borderlands. It was kinda weird. But we’ve always been like that and I kinda like it. Like we dont have to follow conventional social norms like being weird after a “breakup”. Whatever.
I will say though, Thank God Jebus for running in the fall. I’m so glad to get out and run every other day or so. Its seriously the highlight of my week when I get to leave my apartment (!) and run down at Forest Park Nature Center or just around the neighborhood. It gets me some much needed fresh air and respite from the constant masochistic tendencies of my mind. 
Winter is coming soon and I really kinda scared about it. People say I need to get anxiety meds or something to help, but im just scared it’ll do something weird to me and make it even harder to loose this last chunk of weight when I so close to achieving my goal. December 1st is coming quick and alot of stuff can and probably will go wrong before then. I guess all I can do is fortify the psyche for the impending onslaught.

"There is nothing that stirs in the whole world of thought to which sorrow does not vibrate in terrible and exquisite pulsation… It is a wound that bleeds when any hand but that of love touches it, and even then must bleed again, though not in pain."
