#obsessed: Ways to Go – GROUPLOVE

I found this song written in my notes on my phone. Wei-Wei had played it in her car when I tagged along with her catsitting adventure. I didn't remember it at all, but I thought I'd give it a chance; I was instantly dancing around my room. It was a little past midnight, and I probably looked like a fool jamming out by myself, but it was such a feeling of pure happiness. The world was still and I was alone. No one was there to judge me – it was just me and the music. It's the kind of song you stand out of car sunroofs for, and make silly indie music videos dancing out on the hills at sunset with your friends.

Summer is starting to wrap up nicely; I mailed off my forms, finished my summer reading, bought some new books, and checked out some more comics. I've even finished up most of my packing, though now I'm starting regret it because I still need some of the things I packed away (I guess I'm a little overeager). I love this song because it reminds me of that eagerness and excitement, like the first day of third grade, a new start as a big kid. I keep reminding myself that this isn't just the end of a phase of my life, it's the start of a new beginning, and I've still got a ways to go. ◊
