I'm Going to Smile All I Want

Hello world and life force we know as the internet. Me again. I'm just going to do my own thing over here. Before I get into any details, I'd like to clarify that, although it does read 24/7[evan], my blog's title should be read as Twenty-Four S[evan]. Does that make sense? Yepperz.

So I've been pretty busy since my last post! Headed back to work for the week and I'm really liking it! Working seven hours a day M-F at 8.90 an hour isn't so bad for a summer job. I'm making enough money to support myself and pay off some debt, my supervisors are all super nice and supportive, and it's wonderful to know that I'm building "Big Boy" skills. Also, being a student worker is the best idea anyone could ever have to make money in college. Basically, they schedule your work hours around your school commitments and it's simply wonderful. You should look into it if you're poor and in college. Truly.

I headed up to Anthem for the fourth of July festivities and because I don't work on Monday. I plan on lounging, swimming, and just enjoying life. No stress [other than the crazy family] and a lot of fun. I'm meeting with the infamous Elizabeth Rhodes, the dashing Allison Houston, the heartthrob Sean Mullaney, and the charmer Kasey Ray on Sunday. I'm known as the Wanna-Be Ginger Evan Tyler Wilson. It's a living.

Meat and Potatoes time. I assume that if you've read this far, you're seemingly interested in what I have to say... or maybe you just like making fun of it. Either way, you're in for a treat. I had a sort of spirtual awakening this evening on my drive up to Anthem from Tempe. I got full-on chills driving toward the sunset and being the only one on the new freeway for miles. Chills, my friends. The kind you get when you kiss for the first time or when you're overly inspired to do something. For once in my life I had clarity and direction. In this moment, this fleeting instant, everything in my life is, all at once, getting better. Slowly but surely things are climbing from bad to good, or better to best. It just hit me and, prepare your wuss signs, I broke down crying. The sunset was so beautiful and there were no rules. It was just me and the road and a smile. Some people never get to find moments like these in their lives and I'm just so thankful that I was able to feel it. That's what being alive is all about right? The human experience and whatnot? So, my friends, keep your eyes and ears open and your spirits high. It's only life, after all, so cherish each moment as if you'll never have it again. Don't be afraid. Don't wait around. Don't judge yourself or others. And when you inevitably fall short or fail at something, don't spend your time thinking about why it happened. Spend your time thinking about what you learned and how you'll never let it happen again. The secrets to happiness revealed.

My life is sailing without a hitch and I'm going to smile all I want.

Thanks for reading,
