Summer planning is stressful.
I had to sit down today and have a talk with my parents about our yearly summer trip back to North Dakota to see family and whatnot. We usually go for the 4th of July and I've gone just about every year since I was born. I came into the conversation today ready to tell them that I can't go this year.
Yeah, that didn't work so well.
I am now trying to squeeze a family trip in between a YouTube gathering in Portland and a week Lauren is supposed to come spend with me before Azkatraz, all the while when I dont even know if Alex is planning on still being here.
Not to mention with the 2 months I am already taking off for my study abroad in London, I also will have no time to WORK this summer. I am crossing my fingers that youtube numbers stay up because I will need to afford rent somehow.
Vacation is supposed to be relaxing!
Not to make myself sound like a complete whiner; I AM very grateful for the amazing summer I am going to have.
1. LeakyCon (playing)
2. Portland YouTube Gathering
3. (Apparently) Quality time with the family in the midwest
4. Azkatraz (playing)
5. A month studying at the University of Greenwich
6. 3 weeks to a month with Alex/various other UK friends
I just hope I can, you know... afford all of this. I've been saving up since I graduated high school for a summer like this, but going that long without working at a conventional job panics me a little bit.
Also, in unrelated news, I am not going to reveal anything yet, but Alex and I had a brilliant idea for the Parselmouths and I am very excited about it. This band is getting an entire makeover.
Okay I wrote all the above stuff literally like.... 8 hours ago, and just now found the open blogger window on my computer. Oops. I have spent all day recording vocals for things and spending "quality time with the family".
MY BRAIN HURTS.
I'll let you decide which one hurt my brain.
Nothing else epic today, sorry. Oh just this sweet news article: READ ME
