June Reflection and Playlist

Raise your hand if you cannot believe that it is already July. We are officially half way through 2016 and I have no idea where the year has gone. It feels like I fell asleep on January 1st and woke up on July 1st dazed and confused. Time always plays me dirty like this.

I don't even know what happened in June. I feel like it was a blur of driving to and from the airport, working both of my jobs, and driving back and forth for weekend trips home. I was gone three weekends in June, which is absolutely insane. I usually go home once a month if I'm lucky, but I spent three weekends at home which was lovely and exhausting all at the same time. The drive to and from is only about three and a half hours of the same highway, but it takes a lot out of you when you're doing it with only a full day in between. One of the trips was for less than 24 hours! Which was completely and one hundred percent worth it, of course, because so many exciting things happened that weekend.

I wish I could report on more exciting things. My roommates were gone most of June and even if they were here, I work a lot, so basically my life has just been a whole lot of working and blogging and relaxing. I feel sort of lost without school. I don't really know what to do with my free time. I should be reading, but of course, I just sort of fall into the black hole of YouTube and just sort of...well...chill. I'm so out of my element with nothing to do while I'm not in school. I don't know what I'm going to do with myself when I graduate in December, I really don't.

The most exciting thing I did in June was probably go to the Andrew McMahon, Panic! at the Disco and Weezer concert last Saturday in Canandaigua, New York. I went with my lovely older cousin, the person who taught me my colors and introduced me to the glorious nature of Andrew McMahon's existence and music. I did a whole post on the concert so I don't want to delve too deep into it, though I do want to say that I think I was a bit harsh on that Panic! portion of the concert. I still stand by the fact that the spontaneous high notes were super extra, but I've been listening to the album more and I like some of it so...that's good?

As for the things I'm looking forward to in July, I just can't wait to go on vacation. My family and I are going to Cape Cod and Boston at the end of the month and I am literally buzzing at the thought of being back on the east coast. I'm an east coast gal all the way and I think I need a nice heavy dose of the far east coast before I spend the rest of the summer in the midwest. Plus, July just brings us that much closer to the school year. I KNOW, IT'S WEIRD, I SHOULDN'T BE EXCITED FOR SCHOOL. But literally I have one semester left and I cannot wait. I have been waiting for this day since my first day of freshmen year and I just want my cap and gown and diploma and to be free.

To end off my June reflection, here's a playlist of all of the music I've been loving this month. Well, maybe not all of it. If that were going to be a true reflection of what I've been listening to, it would definitely be 80% the entire Hamilton original cast recording and 10% Nick Jonas' new album, 8% "Into You" by Ariana Grande and then 2% everything else.
