Something that is important is the ability to remember things. Memories is important to me and for this blog. If I didn’t remember anything throughout my childhood you wouldn’t be reading this blog because it wouldn’t exist. Everybody (including myself) complain that they didn’t have the ability to remember the bad memories, but they are as useful as the good ones. Every bad memory can either destroy you or make you stronger. If you can push through and forget about your past the stronger you get. You should grateful for every memory you have, because they are a lot of people trying to regain some of those memories that they’ve lost.
What made me think of this was my papaw and his funny stories. He is in his 80’s and he has told us some pretty interesting stories since I was little. For somebody being that age, you’d think they wouldn’t remember anything, but my papaw does. Sometimes that can come back to his kids faces because some of the stupid stuff they did when they were younger can get told by him and then when we would ask our parents about it, about 85% of them will try to switch up the stories. I know my mom has done that quite a few times. Sometimes he remembers more than they will. It just depends on the story and the mind of the adult of who wants to come clean about it first. Remembering memories comes pretty easy to people in my family thank god! Everyday we make a memory and it could be good or bad, but it doesn’t matter either way, because it will be engraved in our minds for future references.
It’s almost August, the eighth month out of the year. Jeez! What happened to July? I find it interesting that both April and May can be the slowest months to get through and then once as June comes around it’s like you’re driving a car in a narrow corner and you have to turn very carefully and slowly to get to the other side. That’s how I think of getting past May into June. After you’ve turned around, those next two months are straight through. No turns or stop signs in sight. You just drive forever and by the end you’re like, “that was quick!” That’s summer for you!
I’ve got a bunch of thing lined up for me next month. I’m thinking about just skipping these next three days and just going ahead and starting a new month, what do you think? June was the month of Linkin Park, July was my depressing month, and August is happily titled my “full” album. I start out the month on an interesting note. I go to the doctors within the first week of August. I’m fine with going to the regular doctor than eye doctor or dentist. As long as they don’t have to take my blood I’ll be fine. Since I’ve had this check-up before two years ago, I already know there will be no blood taken. I hope not at least. I’m praying I don’t have to.
That next week is made up of little things. August 10th, my sister has her first-last Football game that she has to cheer at that Friday night. My mom already has that day off so that means I get to go. It’s going to be hot as hell, but I love going to Football games. On August 13th they are announcing the Dancing With The Stars pros on Good Morning America, so that means I have to wake up bright and early to watch that and wait til the end of the show to even see who will be on it. That’s what they did in the spring. The next day, which is the 14th is when one of my favorite bands In This Moment release their next album, Blood and hopefully by then I’d have an iTunes card and buy it off of there because I am not buying it at Wal-Mart. I don’t want to get a rock album that has half of the words bleeped out of it. It’s stupid.
I don’t know which week everything is, but I do know the dates to everything, so I’m surprised I can even think straight at the moment. August 27th is the date that we find out who will be the last contestant on Dancing With The Stars. (If you want to vote for either Sabrina Bryan, Carson Kressley, or Kyle Massey read DWTS All-Star (Celeb Cast) post.) Another morning I have to get up early in the morning, and since I missed the other morning that had this announcement I have to watch this one. Good Morning America is having the Backstreet Boys come perform on August 31st. It will be the first time that all five members will get on stage together and perform live. I am so freaking excited! That’s the only 31st that I am excited about. That’s what I got coming for me next month. I’m not for sure how much more I got coming, but I hope nothing overlaps or I’ll be really mad if that happens.
