I don’t normally like the feeling of nostalgia. Nostalgia makes me sad for the most part and I’m not particularly fond of being sad. But lately I’ve found myself feeling nostalgic as I come back to New York, gearing up to start the second semester of my Junior year of college, and I’m ok with that. I have always considered my Junior year of high school as one of the most important of my life. I learned a lot about myself then, and I experienced a vast array of emotions that to this day I can’t figure out. That was when I was hanging out with Michael, Cory, and Q the most and seeing Q go off to work on a boat as I left to come back to school was weird. In a lot of ways we’re still very similar to how we were back then, but in every way it will never be the same. Nothing will ever be as it was then and it’s fascinating to see how relationships develop and change, how things that mattered back then seem fucking stupid today. It’s crazy to think about where the four of us were with our lack of love lives too. That’s always interesting to look back on.


There is not one sensical thought in the paragraph up there but maybe this will make sense…

A new Bright Eyes album comes out next month, there hasn’t been one since I was in high school. The music Connor has released since high school has been solo stuff. Connor grew up and changed the way he felt in his songs around the same time that I grew up and went to college. But now he’s going back to the Bright Eyes name, and that means the way he feel has changed in such a way that he felt he needed a new bright eyes album. So maybe we can go back to the way things were, through a new lens, and see things differently. I don’t know. Maybe I should stick to posting pictures of memes. Probably.
