I feel oddly situated between feeling lonely (with no real reason - I've had lots of great company; probably just lonely from being out of a relationship for a new record length of time - and no boy "on call" to be a pseudo-boyfriend if wanted), and stressed from being busy. Going out every night is not for me - I require lots of at home with my puppy dog time. I've started scheduling "things to do alone" on my calendar just as I would plans with other people. This Saturday I'm finally getting an Austin library card, there's the farmer's markets I'm yet to visit, a few concerts I want to attend... and I told myself I'm going to man up and go out one evening to bar/pub/coffee shop I like and sit with a beer and my book and work on not feeling vulnerable or like everyone's looking at me wondering if I actually have any friends or if I'm some sort of social pariah.
This song is Daughter by Magic Man, and I really like it. The whole album is available for free download here.
