This has honestly been the most emotionally draining week. I am still aching over Robin Williams in an unbelievable way. My hands have been shaking and my bones screaming over the events in Ferguson day after day. A mom that I’ve known since I have been able to hold onto memories lost her battle with cancer. I have been in my bed staring at the wall all day because I’m afraid that if I move I’m just going to feel even more weight on my soul.

"You will have bad times, but they will always wake you up to the stuff you weren’t paying attention to."
I am a person who is deeply and profoundly emotional about death, I know. But this is hitting my so hard. I am just so grateful for this man and everything that he has given me. Depression is no joke. It is an insidious monster. I hope that he is happy and at peace, wherever he is. I hope that he knows how many people he has touched. Genie, you’re free.

Lollapalooza was practically sickandrainypalooza. But it was one of the best weekends of my life. I saw bands I’ve never seen, one of my favorites for the third time, and Donald Glover made me lose my gd mind.

July started out terrible. I found out that my summer school financial aid was practically $0 so I had to basically max out my credit cards. And I had to drain my savings account. I was saving for a vacation for so long. And I got myself to the point where I could go on a nice vacation and still have some cushion. But that all changed over night. And I cried a lot.
But it ended up turning around. We went on a mini-trip to Summerfest to see Brand New and ended up spontaneously staying an extra night. We spent went to Notre Dame to see one best friend and then went to Logan Square to see another best friend’s new apartment. We got to go to the lake house a few times and just be on the water by ourselves and then with all of our friends.
July wasn’t what I wanted. But it ended up being pretty great anyway.

I don’t like Seinfeld. Is Elaine me? Am I Elaine? I have been seeing so many Elaine posts where I really think so.

You remember too much,
my mother said to me recently.
Why hold onto all that?
And I said,
Where do I put it down?
