L: How’s your first LA “June Gloom” going?
F: It has not been that gloomy on this side of town until the past couple of days. The weather has been beautiful and mild, otherwise. I guess all and all, it hasn’t effected me in the slightest. Not like when I made this playlist last year (which I still listen to all the time).
L: What are you reading right now?
F: Oh! I am reading The Goldfinch. I started it on Sunday and have been staying up way past my bedtime (til 11pm!) reading. I am just eating this book up. The first couple chapters grab you by the hand and pull you into the story. I recommend it and I haven’t even finished it. Also, it won the Pulitzer Prize for fiction.
L: What is a virtue you most value?
F: Sheesh…just going straight to it. You aren’t even going to buy me a drank first?!
I have to admit, I just googled the word virtue and it feels so stuffy. Like something people spoke about in the Middle Ages. But since you asked, I think courage is a virtue I admire greatly – the courage to be who you feel you are, the courage to change something in your life that makes you unhappy, the courage to be truthful. I like that virtue.
I also really appreciate people being compassionate instead of judgemental.
L: Do you have a happy song?
F: I was just thinking about how all the songs I listen to are a bit haunting lately. Sure, I have plenty of happy songs. It’s funny I don’t listen to them as much. How about this one:
p.s. This video was filmed at Burning Man or something like that.
L: What do you want to be when you grow up (also, I kinda hate when people say this)?
