Drove out to Oberlin on Friday night for a birthday party, where I caught up with long lost friends and we played games and blew off smoke bombs in the front yard. Doesn't seem like we leave Cuyahoga County very often and the change of scene was refreshing. Mukhtar brought along the new Mos Def album which made great soundtrack music.
Stopped over to see the family on Saturday morning as usual, got some chill time at the house, had some unexpected company over, and watched the Indians lose with my dad. Still, it was a nice night out, good for baseball, and the free hot dogs were appreciated.
Went over to Swahili church for the first time in about a month because I was missing everyone so much. They had a party afterwards that I stayed for, good food and good people. It was a perfect day for driving, and since I hang out on the west side everyone was rocking their Puerto Rican flags all over... low rider cars and reggaeton and flags everywhere. Me and Alex ended up going out to Huntington Beach to chill on the rocks and watch the sunset and the city lights come on. It was just so perfect out.
When it's like this, I don't want to sleep. The days are beautiful and the nights even more. I know how short this time is, and I just don't want to miss it.
