I'm having the hardest time getting motivated to clean and pack everything for the move in a week.  I work a lot, and when I get home the last thing I want to do is pack up the apartment.  I got home 2 and a half hours ago and have done nothing.

I think the best plan would be to go to Stop and Shop, get some Mike and Ike's and something to drink, and maybe a contentless movie from redbox or perhaps download an album by El Perro Del Mar, quarters for laundry, then come back and just really go to town.  What do you think?  At least get started!!! The hardest part is starting.

The worst thing ever is disappointing someone.

The other day I hurt someone who means everything to me. Generally I don't handle situations like this well because I avoid any confrontations if at all possible.  And when something does happen, I always just want things to back to the way they were instantly.  But it can't, and a lot of times it shouldn't be that easy.  I have that feeling I get in of my chest when something is unresolved or when something really bad just happened, and it is melting me.  

I have had kind of a bittersweet summer so far. The highs- absolutely euforic. The lows- confusing and desolate.  But without the lows the highs wouldn't feel so great, right?    

Whew. It's off my chest.

I played at a wedding today.  I got to see a couple old friends, and also feel like I got to know a person a little whom I didn't really know before.  I look forward to this next school year with him! The whole quartet was really having a good time. Sometimes playing for a friend's wedding brings out the best in a musician. The music being played is meaningful to so many people.  Man. There were a couple moments where I felt I wasn't behind the horn, but in the music.  It should always feel that way.

Tomorrow begins a new week.

Week with my sister!

My favorite breakfast place, Thortons. 

We wanted to get a good seat at the movie, but being 40 minutes early is apparently too early. Becky did pick the best seat, though.

McCormick and Schmicks

Contemplating whether eating the whole cannoli was a good idea or not.

More pictures from the sunrise at Revere Beach

After the beach, we went to a little diner and had some fruit, eggs, toast and potatoes.

My sister and I went to the beach this morning to catch the sunrise.  I took a million pictures, and would love for you to see them all, but when posted on here they all look the same.  So I just picked a few.

When the sun finally came out from behind that big cloud, it instantly warmed up and is now the hottest day of the summer so far.  Finally broke down and bought an air conditioner.
