“The Mountain Goats song “This Year” is the song I listen to whenever I need reminding that shit will pass. What song do you listen to when you need a reminder like that? Or maybe you need something other than music at those points?”
That’s not how I use music when I am suffering, when I’m in a hard place: I use it to suffer more. I listen to stuff that makes me feel worse—that is just sort of how I am. You know, the “cry it out” style of sleep training that some people use? (Not us, I want to point out.) I am still crying it out, and someday I hope to get some sleep.
-just more proof that john & i are soul mates, and that sleeping outside his bedroom window until he acknowledges me is not the craziest idea i’ve had.
