Listen to the song (“Go D0“). Also “Animal Arithmetic.” Those two songs, with their exploration of sound mixed with high energy rhythms and melodic moments, do a wonderful job of giving an auditory example of this past weekend and yesterday. I cannot help but smile, maybe even begin swaying and dancing, as I close my eyes and soak the music in. It hits somewhere deep in my chest and it acts like a breath of fresh air; invigorating and light and alive. It’s hopeful, like for the first time the pieces of the puzzle are coming together and I am seeing a hint of the picture on the cover of the box.
Not only did I have a fun-filled, random weekend involving tattoos, amazing food, a drunk birthday boy, Wiener Circle (they have a vegetarian hamburger now!), and long nights reminiscent of the all-nighters pulled in college, but also I am now interning with the Metro in Chicago. I could not stop smiling last night. That is until I fell asleep. Even then, though, the dreams were pleasant.
