“Stop Making Sense”

Part of being human is learning to accept the fact that we get bored, even at concerts. But ‘Stop Making Sense’ never gets boring.

You could call me a socializing addict. I’m not an extrovert — though I am extroverted. I’m not an introvert — though I crave my alone time. I fall somewhere in the middle (I think many of us do), with a slight tilt on the extroverted side. The thing is, people are wonderful. And though I crave myself, people teach me about myself, and so I crave them all the more — their idiosyncrasies, foibles, hugs and shrugs. I have to be around it. I need to be around it. Sometimes I don’t even know why, and I sacrifice my own wellbeing for the high. Alack: addiction.

First, a confession: I’m jealous of people with synesthesia, and I always have been.

Colours - Grouplove

Ah yes, jealousy of an inborn neurological phenomenon. All the great love stories in the world have spawned from it, right?

Definitely not. Not at all. It’s just me.

That’s what the rain does to me. It cleanses, it cleans, it calms.

Is it a metaphor for sex, or did Black Francis’s car just run out of gas? There will never be an answer.

Sometimes I call myself a “sonic youth.” It’s become a bit of a pet name this first month of school — a pep name, if you will — that reminds me I am still a crisp young gun, traipsing the sunny streets of Ann Arbor with as much musicality as possible. But also, I’ve been into Sonic Youth lately.

Currently, I am a sponge — a confident albeit quasi-existential junior in college who loves music and talking to other humans, who realizes she still has a lot to soak in, interpret and squeeze out in practice.

There’s something about summer that turns me into a deep, perspiring thinker.

Nay, I need a great song to fill the void. After all, what else can? Love, some say? But what the hell is that?
