a nice, cold day at Peet’s with the family, decent outfit and Mumford and Sons. yeah, i am slowly getting into them.
i kind of flinch at myself for getting into artists too late— like i did with Arcade Fire and now Mumford and Sons, AND possibly Florence and the Machine— but the thing is, i like finding music at my own pace. there’s plenty of other musicians i’d like to tackle first before moving on to others recommended (usually by my friend Cogo, and i do spite him for getting into the stuff first). the funny thing is that none of my other friends really like indie rock. it’s odd and sometimes dismaying how i can’t really talk to them about Arctic Monkeys, The Bravery, MGMT, Kasabian, whatever on a daily basis. ugghhhh. whatever, it makes me happy, my music. DON’T EVER TAKE IT AWAY FROM ME.
i am also missing the City. this cold weather back in Concord is making me miss San Francisco so much. then again, i’m very glad to be back in Concord. i pretty much hate suburban life, but for some reason Concord doesn’t really feel like it. i guess it’s probably just ‘cause it’s my hometown. i am convinced that everywhere i go will make me happy somehow. San Francisco: the life; Concord: family and friends.
i’m ready, getting the makeup and clothes on, and imagining how lovely this sunny day will turn out. i fancy breakfast with parents, gelato out in Walnut Creek, visiting grandpa, and some reading to sum up the day.
i’m still in bed, feeling too relaxed, but these things must get done! i love waking up relatively early.
Pandorda. last.fm. iTunes. am i like the only person who finds new music and songs through legit, old-fashioned radio?
