August 15th — Reggie’s Rock Club | Chicago, IL
— Matt Hasenmueller of The Millenium
I have always been a man reliant on his krutch. When I was little it was video games and TV. I would spend hours upon hours exploring the many lands a television screen could offer. Once I hit high school it became music, and social interaction. My grades slipped, but my mind widened. I found more merit in building personal connections with people, rather than building connections with a mathematical concept. As I’ve gotten older I’ve become quite the fan of whiskey and nicotine, which has left my throat rusted on far too many mornings.
Lately my loneliness has been getting the best of me, and it’s a parasite that affects everyone and everything in my life, leaving me unsheathed and raw at any given hour past midnight. I’ve found my confidence is fragile, and unless I distract myself with something substantial, I will throw myself into pitiful wither.
With all this being said, I ended my day back home to sleep in my own bed after Chicago at 6am. The radio in the van died, so the last 45 minutes were spent alone, in silence, watching the sunrise, and I’m finally learning how to move forward.
