moments not included because they are not thematically relevant to summer: reading john darnielle’s tweets on new year’s eve, surrounded by friends and in that moment being more aware and in tune with how much i’ve grown and how much i’ve pulled myself through and how thankful i am to be sitting among my friends, a little fuzzy from rum and cokes and champagne; hearing “you were cool” out of nowhere and bursting into tears; the countless moments where this music was one of the few things keeping me together through some tough shit; etc.

anyway, goths is out today, you should buy it/buy ten copies and give them to all of your friends
