Things have been going fairly well recently. I just finished re-reading one of my favorite books, The Easter Parade by Richard Yates and have seen some awesome friends lately. Some other stuff:

*Visited Lincoln, Nebraska, which is a fun town.
*Reading the latest issue of Zoetrope: All-Story, which was designed by Jason Schwartzman.
*Seeing Camera Obscura in a couple weeks.
*Saw two sneak previews for free: She's Out of My League and Hot Tub Time Machine. Neither were all that good, but whatever, it was free!
*Met St. Vincent a month ago. She was really nice. I don't make as much of an effort to meet bands as I used to, due to them often being kind of unfriendly, but she was really nice. That's awesome.

Mid 20s

It seems like most people I know are now are getting into their mid 20s, or maybe even older. That's just weird to think about. My sister turns 29 in a few days. A friend of mine turned 25 last week. Another turned 24 a couple days ago. We're gettin' old.

Some cool things in the last couple weeks:
*Ordered salmon for the first time at a restaurant (not the first time I've had it, but I've never voluntarily asked for it at a restaurant before)
*Shout Out Louds have a new CD coming out in a month. The new songs I've heard sound good.
*Camera Obscura is coming to Lawrence.
*Went to Manhattan (Kansas, not New York).
*Went to Columbia (Missouri).
*Am reading some good books.

Since June...

Here's what I've been up to since I last updated in June:

*Took a road trip to California and back, making stops in Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Denver, and more. 4400 miles. Plus I met Zach Galifianakis! I manage to squeeze that into every conversation. You can read about the trip here:
*Told everyone I was moving to Chicago and then changed my mind and moved back to Lawrence.
*Still visited Chicago and had a swell time with Brian
*Played lots of shows with a couple bands
*Working on a novel. It's getting there slowly. Up to page 76 or so.

New Year's Eve was pretty great. I am reminded everyday that I know some really great people, and I continue to meet more. I did last night in fact. It's such a lucky thing.

Here are some of these people:
