halfway through august || life







I spent an awesome weekend in Chicago at the beginning of August with my cousins and friends. I went to Lollapalooza for the first time. I loved it. I saw Sigur Ros, Of Monsters and Men, Jack White, Justice, Kaskade, Bombay Bicycle Club and some other randoms. It was like we were in a whole new world. Everyone is half-naked and so free. It was pretty fun to also observe the people that were there.

I also loved this weekend because we went good quality time with our cousins. I have a bad history of going to Chicago for a wedding or a church event and often I wouldn't see my cousins, or I'd see them for a really short time. This time was different. It was good to reconnect with Grace, Paul and Helen. When we were younger our age difference kind of restricted what we'd talk about and what we would do, but now that we're all in our 20s, we could all talk about similar things... even if it was usually about weddings.

I still can't believe that August is halfway over. I'm off to school in about 3 weeks. I was hecka nervous about it. I was even considering just dropping out after first year, go find a job and get started on my life. I have a lot more to say on that. There was a lot of fear in regards to my future and I didn't want to waste my time. But I'm starting to recognize that I have to go through the process in order to get to where I want to.

I hope you've all been having an awesome August. Summer is almost over!
