And speaking of the nineties, I've been really nostalgic for that decade musically lately. This band wasn't around for very long, but they had an impact on me, and (some of) the lyrics to this song really resonate with me:
Blind Melon - "Tones of Home"
And also during the visit, much music was discussed. We're planning our concerts up to the end of the summer, and here's one of my favorites from one of the bands we'll be seeing in August:
Weezer - "Dope Nose"
Also a nineties band, but that song wasn't a nineties song...
So after that long weekend, I came back and am now in the middle of a nine-day-in-a-row stretch. At this point I'm stressed and irritable and no one can stand to be around me. I'm trying to learn to take care of myself through the stress and constant motion, though, because I think this might just be another "new normal" for me.
C'est la vie.
