Instead of reflecting on what June bought me, I'm going to focus on the now, like right now. So without further ado, let's get started.

To Vietnamese music in the background and the sound of distant fireworks. Earlier, I listened to all the Hamilton music that is available (including the workshop version.)

Other than what I'm typing out, I'm currently reading Roomies by Sara Zarr and Tara Altebrando. It's a cute summer read, and it's making me reflect a bit on the summer before I started college, which is nice and kind of sad. Last night, I finished Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates. It's an amazing memoir that makes you think a lot about anti-black racism in the United States, and how it's still continuing on today. Eventually, I'll write a longer post about the book once I gather my thoughts after reading the intensity of that.

Nothing at the moment, other than a lot of Youtube videos, which I guess counts. Currently, I'm enjoying season two of Love @First Night, which is adorable and funny and dramatic and diverse in all the right ways.

Who knows what. Ever since I got back from Seattle, my dreams have been disappearing on me like a magician's smoke. But honestly, I've been dreaming of a brighter future where the world isn't problematic as it is now. But the pessimistic/realist side of me says that that won't happen because it seems that humans have a tendency to hate each other for some little thing and then build a system around that idea. After all, history tends to repeat itself.

And now the weather:
