Sky Blue Sky

I don't mean to get high

Some interesting and mellow releases this month; including Travis' "The Boy With No Name" And Wilco's "Sky Blue Sky". I've gotten my hands on a couple of tracks from both albums, and I have got to say I am liking it, at least considering the genre.

With a sky blue sky
This rotten time
Wouldn’t seem so bad to me now
Oh, I didn’t die
I should be satisfied
I survived
That's good enough for now

I cannot hold on to the fact that I will be moving out of this apartment in about a month. It has been a year filled with joy, sadness and a lot of anger. Vivian couldn't have been a better room mate, and although this has basically been a social experiment with us not getting any other friends I have felt lonely surprisingly seldom. I am really going to miss her, and when she's off to New Zealand in January 2008 I know I'll feel both proud, happy and a little bit sad. It's slightly harder to pop in for a visit when the person lives on the other side of the world.

Living with someone who has enough control over their life to know what they'll be doing in a year's time obviously gets you thinking. What the hell will I be doing next year around this time? In my heart I'm hoping I will be living with Hannes, but I cannot say that I don't see that projection as somewhat doubtful, considering our past and even our present. I am not quite sure where he stands, I know what I want and I know what I want to happen, and even if he says that is what he wants as well I cannot help but to have doubts, which I feel ok with knowing that if he does stand me up again I cannot allow my self to get completely crushed; after all I thought it might happen. A horrible outlook on life, but come on, I'm dealing with a shady Swede. To brighten this up a bit I shall now post a video for one of the new Travis songs, definitely worth a watch. That's a hell of a lot of t-shirts, yo!

I have 11 books to get through, but this time I will make it. Quite a lot of it is tedious fiction (Reading "Wuthering Heights" again is not something I can say I am looking forward to) but when it comes down to it the material is quite interesting. After getting a green (and a very green at that) light on my essay I know I will sit all my remaining exams, and now I feel prepared to kick ass this last month living at Teh Starship. I can do it, I can win at life once again.

I love you kids, even if you really suck at commenting.

I know who the boy with no name is. ;)

Exam times are stressful and somewhat weird, but I have faith in you and it looks like you've gotten your faith back in yourself too, which is one of the most important factors for success.


About the other stuff, I certainly hope that works out too. <3
