"Buy direct. The Jewelry Exchange in Tustin!"

I wished I was someone else, and I wished it was warmer

I've been making mixtapes lately. Trying to make one that feels like this:

My emotions change so frequently that I have to keep starting over, so I keep making tapes for people that will never end up in their hands. I usually don't tell them, though, except one time. I burned the CD, scrawled cryptic allusions to what I was feeling that night in orange Sharpie all over the front, but it didn't feel right. I kept it to myself, as a diary of sorts.

Right now The Mountain Goats and Carissa's Wierd keep winding their way onto these mixes. Songs that feel like autumn. Songs that make my chest hurt. We'll see if I ever give this one to the recipient.

I doubt it.

Concerning that last update:

I have learned so goddamned much this year. It's astounding the lessons you can learn in only eight months. This year I've had some of my greatest highs and my worst lows, I've met so many amazing people, and I've really started to come into my own. Before this year, the question of "Who am I?" constantly plagued my mind, but now I'm beginning to find out. I've made mistakes, and I've grown because of them. I've forgiven and I hope I've been forgiven. I've given, and I've taken. I've been used and I've taken advantage. Though sometimes I think I'd take certain things back, in the long run...I just don't know. I have regrets, and I've had remorse. But, you know, through it all, I'd like to never forget.

This year is one to remember.
It's remarkable, really.
