You know how some things come and go, and you don't quite know what happenend, but you get the idea? Maybe my summer deserves this tag. Actually, now that I think about it, I can recount this summer pretty well. Come along for this fantastic voyage baby.

So the first two weeks of summer went by, and I did nothing. A little American Gladiators watching, couple dips in the pool, Tae Bo, etc. I remember my Smiths phase that I was into, when depression was sinking in slightly. Then I went on my cruise, which was rather enjoyable, save for the pointless kids on the ship, except for the ten year-olds who thought I was cute. I almost acted upon their wishes, but then I realized I wasn't a member of the Catholic Church. Ouch. I do have to say that San Juan is a beautiful city, and definitely on my short list of cities to visit again. And how could I forget blasting My Bloody Valentine at 2 am because my dad's snoring was so loud.

I gallantly returned from my cruise, and proceeded to be at odds with my mom for the next week or so. Luckily, we resolved our differences, and were pretty good with each other the rest of the summer. I remember standing outside my house waiting for Krystal and Arianne to pick me up one rainy night. I remember how cool it was to hear Noah talk about his trip to Miyazu. I remember the Alamo as well.

Summer really began with the first day of hanging out with Ian, Austin, and Sara. Quite a fun day, possibly the funnest of the summer. Bowling, driving around, thrift stores, what it is to burn, slurpees-what more could a boy ask for? Then I went to Orlando and checked out UCF and then UF. The trip was a lot better than I thought it would be, since the hotel that the school system put my mom at was easily the nicest hotel I've ever stayed at. And the car ride with my dad up to Gainesville was sweet I guess, talking about Ally Sheedy circa Breakfast Club.

July went by really fast. Mostly spent nights with Ian, the Kerrs, Tucker, Austin, and of course Noah. In fact, for awhile, the Garbarino residence was my second home, as it is to many people I have learned. Mario Kart and Goldeneye consumed many a night. Also, the dinner with Ben and Vivi at Sushi Jazz was a wonderul night, makes me want to do it again.

Suddenly, summer was over, and band camp was upon me. Much better than any other year, I must say. As I look back on my summer goals, I'd feel pretty good about myself. Sure, I didn't write a screenplay, and I gave up on Bust-a-Move by the 3rd week of June. The noise rock scene is still non-existant down here, no thanks to me. But I did become exposed to many more bands and genres of music, and I can say now that I have almost earned the right to be called a music nazi. Even though I know I'll be called that anyway because I didn't get the new Dashboard. "A Mark, A Mission, a Piece of Shit. " And I did some pieces of writing, some posted on here, others not, that I am actually proud of. I didn't see many films in the theatres though. Eh, they all sucked probably. Except for Gigli. That looked like a classic.

I will admit, I never felt more at peace with myself than on some of the nights where I put one of my favorite albums and just drifted off, until I realized it was 4 am.

My few regrets this summer: Not seeing Cary or Dave this summer. Also, I didn't lose as much weight as I should have, but at least I'll always have my bulimia. Much thanks to Ian for the Veterans Park nights. Much thanks to Austin for being a good kid. Much thanks to the Kerrs for a few exciting nights, in part to the one night stint of Lark Voorhees and the Dustin Diamond Trio. Much thanks to Ben for not caring about me being at your house many nights. Much thanks to Noah for dealing with kicking my ass every night in N64 games. Much thanks to Sarah Largo Knotts for the countless nights of sometimes pointless convos, sometimes thoughtful convos. And much thanks to any other person who made my summer good, at all, through online conversations, or in-person meetings. Of course, there's only one song that will define summer for me, and only 3 people have any clue why. And I doubt any of them are reading this.

"Hey what's happening
is rap a thing
or maybe not
well I don't really know you

I thought I'd introduce
and I'd abuse
the fact that I am rhyming

Well you're my fatal attraction
I saw you and my heart had a chain reaction
when I smell your perfume
it smells like D O O M doom
and doom backwards is mood

I'm in the mood for you girl
(he's in the mood for you girl)
in the mood for you girl
(he's in the mood for you girl)
hope that you will know it's true
'cause I am in the mood for you
I'm in the mood for you girl
(he's in the mood for you girl)
in the mood for you girl
(he's in the mood for you girl)
in the mood for you girl
(he's in the mood for you girl)
yeah, I am in the mood for you

So what's going on
I'd like to run
but I dont have my running shoes with me
(running shoes)
Yes you're still the best
of all the rest
we'll grap the chest
'cause its not that heavy

I released twelve doves
'cause when your here I'm totally hot
and it makes my body numb
I know that makes me sound dumb
but dumb backwards is almost mood

I'm in the mood for you girl
(He's in the mood for you girl)
In the mood for you girl
(He's in the mood for you girl)
Hope that you will know it's true
'Cause I am in the mood for you
I'm in the mood for you girl
(He's in the mood for you girl)
In the mood for you girl
(He's in the mood for you girl)
In the mood for you girl
(He's in the mood for you girl)
In the mood for you girl
(He's in the mood for you girl)
In the mood for you girl
(He's in the mood for you girl)
Yeah, I am in the mood for you

You know there comes a time in every boys life When he has to make a decision
A decision involving women or girls
And you know what my decision is girl
'Cause you know I love you

(Song's not over yet)

I know what you're thinking
When you're drinking
And I think the same thing that you do
Sort of
We can have a fight
And talk all night
About what we drink earlier
Or what we thought we were thinking

You're my fatal attraction
I saw you and my heart had a chain reaction
When I smell your perfume
It smells like D O O M doom
and doom backwards is mood

I'm in the mood for you girl
(He's in the mood for you girl)
In the mood for you girl
(He's in the mood for you girl)
Hope that you will know it's true
'Cause I am in the mood for you
I'm in the mood for you girl
(He's in the mood for you girl)
In the mood for you girl
(He's in the mood for you girl)
In the mood for you girl
(He's in the mood for you girl)
Yeah, I am in the mood for you

You know this is the time of day
When i like to lay down and go to bed 'cause It's night time and id love for you to lay down with me
'Cause I think you're fantastic"


Love,
Drew R.
