July

July 1, 2009

July has always bugged me. I don’t know why. Or I guess I should say, it’s recently bugged me…

As a child I looked forward to it and loved it. I may have been going to that camp/crafts/general athletics thing or that may have been finishing up by this time. I have very fond memories of it, but realize now it was just so my brother and I wouldn’t stay inside and bug our mother or play video games. Now look at me – staying in during July and typing on a blog…

As a teenager I liked it, but most summers were boring. Nice to hang out with friends, terrible to go to work during the summer. Which went from boredom to a license and a job and money (and responsibility). Now, it’s different.

I don’t know when it first struck a chord with me, but I realized at some point that early July has to be the middle of the year. I never counted to the 183rd day, but I now know that July 2nd is the very middle of the year. I have to say that while I have done some things these past 6 months, I’m not looking forward to the rest of the 6 months this year. All that we have is my birthday – getting older, autumn – which is nice, but also means cold winter!, and another year in the books. Even if I get a new job or accomplish something, it’s still another year officially done.

I guess the real problem, is just that it’s the second half. As many things I wanna do, the halfway point will be the most depressing – it will continue, but it will also be over soon. I can only imagine how I’ll be once I turn 37…
