I have to say that these shoes have saved me in some ways. Over the course of this week of classes my mind has been in almost every other thought besides school and a subject I began thinking about was my shoes. Yes, that lovely pair right above this script. I traveled to many places in them and went to two amazing concerts in them. I received them during the summer of last year because my aunt was trying to make me into a corporal female…I like my freedom and nothing to me speaks freedom like a pair of Converse. Yeah I got some heels and dresses but these shoes are worn on my feet more often than any other pair of shoes. After I had gotten them I was determined to wear them to a concert…another story for another time. This year I took a ,by car, cross-country road trip with my roommate Jasmine to Maryland. Of course I wore those shoes the entire time, they needed to carry me to new grounds, to new places to see new faces. After that I continued to choose that pair of shoes as my most selected pair to wear. In September I took another cross-country trip with Meghan to Lake Tahoe, this time via plane, and experienced so much of the west that I thought I’d never get to see…in those very shoes. I won’t bore you with my rant about where I visited when we went west, if you want dets then read the other fucking posts…love you. Upon returning from Nevada I went to a Matisyahu concert and freaking sweated in the same pair of shoes.
My point is that even though that they are shoes my shoes represent a story, they tell where I’ve been, where I’ve walked, what I’ve gained from not only experience but from observation. I love those shoes because they walk me new places and allow me to wander and get a little lost.
Sometimes it’s good to lose yourself when you think that you will never leave the ground
Onto another subject! I was trying to study for a test I have tomorrow but I got distracted by a stream of amazing line-ups! Don’t ever put music in my ears, schoolwork will be forever forgotten. If you’re angry and just want to chill the fuck out, first chill the fuck out and then put in some of these songs. Relax my friend, allow your mind to drift and wander off into the simplistic things life has to offer.
