Today I had a few hours to indulge in people watching- a pastime that has been lost in the past few months of my life. Something i've always appreciated are peoples quirks. Whether you deny them or not, there are common threads that surface giving you 10 times more depth then the next person.

Today, my observation was of a cashier at Crossroads. Every customer who paid with a card, he openly guessed what name they went by. If the card read "Catherine" he would ask, "Do you go by Cathy? I have a friend named Cathy." or "Alexander, I bet you go by Alex, huh?" While his job must seem super mundane at times, it makes me happy that he has created a simple game that he obviously enjoys.

Simple pleasures people, it's where it's at.

Tonight I realized just how emotionally attached I am to hardcore music/ music in general.

Roads to Freedom

3am, strap the kid in the car, and go.
It used to be the only thing that could put me to sleep, and right now it’s the only thing keeping me... something.

Back then, I think it was the lulling of rubber gripping the road, and the eerie glow the trees caught from our ’92 Ford station wagon. My parents exhausted in the front seat, comforted with the idea that three miles down the road my eyes would start to close.

My steering wheel seems to be attached to my 2 ton safety blanket.
