Ain't nothin' but a heartache. Ain't nothin' but a mistake.

Boyce Avenue, why must you be so good?

I did finally listen to The Rocket Summer, though. Amazing! Bryce has a way of sounding positive no matter what he is singing about.

Last week is gone! The week of Mondays is no more. The awful hours locked in the basement studying are over. I'll be studying at a music festival this week. WHAT? Yes. Awesome. I am sooooo excited! I'll be more excited once I'm ready, because I feel no where near ready. I'm jamming everything into tomorrow. Shopping, packing, and planning will happen all at once, and that will help knock me into this week and out of last.

Father's Day was very chill. Dad got a grill (not from us, from himself), and Jon did us up some burgers and hot dogs. I pitched in for Dad's new toy, some kind of computer tablet...thingy.

Well, I'm going to bed, because my mind is flying and my eyes are dropping. I have to go journal to bring my mind down a notch before I fall asleep and have those awful dreams about everything that happened during the day. I had those dreams a lot during the week of Mondays. Not fun.

I can't stop listening to Boyce Avenue. It's a problem, because I still need to listen to The Rocket Summer albums I got last week.

Music has been getting me through this week of Mondays. I just want it to be next week already. ALIVE FEST 2012! WOOP WOOP!

I have so much to do this week in school, and in getting my application ready for next semester. I'm trying not to stress out too much. Just listening to a lot of Boyce. Alejandro's voice soothes the soul.

Watch me walk like a Sasquatch.

Dad and I talk and talk out on the trail this morning, and time flew by! Suddenly we were back at my car, and he told me that I had gone over 6 miles. Awesome.

Plus I had this song stuck in my head the whole run. DEAD SARA ALL THE TIME.

He continued back onto the trail while I started driving out of the park. Dad likes to do looong runs on the weekend, so he was no where near done. We had taken separate cars so I could leave early.

So I'm driving through the park when I see movement to my right. It's Dad loping out towards the road, arms dangling, legs swinging. He is doing The Sasquatch Walk that I had been doing all morning every time we had to cross a road. I yelled "AAAAHHHH!" and honked my horn at him.

Why is my dad so cool?

Running and talking with Dad made me feel less stressed. It helped to let the trail pull all of my thoughts out of my head, making me relax and realize that everything was okay and everything was pretty normal. Staying in your own head too much can make you crazy. You have to process and sort through all of the junk to come to the conclusion of what thoughts are the truth and what thoughts can be written off as you just over thinking everything.

I'm supposed to watch The Avengers with my brothers later today. I think it's going to be awesome, especially since I can stop watching as soon as Thor enters a scene and be perfectly satisfied that my ticket was money well spent.

I am way more easily stressed than I thought I was. Not something I wanted to discover about myself.


I'm still not doing good at taking time for myself. Still watching some television shows here and there instead. I'm sure that this is linked to all of the stress. I'm not watching as much television as I was, though. And I'm reading more. I even visited my favorite spot in the wood out behind my house last week.

I guess I'm just tired.

I decided to learn how to cook. I made two chicken pot pies, and it took me two seconds to realize that I KNOW NOTHING. They still turned out good though, thanks to Mom and Dad's help...and all the cheese.

School is starting to kick my butt some. But I can do it. And I loooove my job. Kids have a way of blowing my mind. This motivates me to keep pushing at school. Eventually I'll meet my goals.

Going running with Dad in a few hours. Goodnight!
