I have had less than five hours of sleep every night this week since Wednesday. Too many places to be with too many cool people. I am exhausted to the point I don’t even feel conscious as I write this. My eyes are trying in vain to stay open at the same time as I sip Costa Rican at Rocky Mountain Coffee in Frisco, Colorado.
I drove up here for the day to hang out with my friends the Hoags and the Smiths. Later today we are going to head to Leadville to watch some thing where guys get towed over ski-jumps by horses. Sounds exhilarating, although I only hope I can stay awake for it. I don’t even know that I am in Frisco for sure. For all I know, I might be still in the back of my truck sleeping in the Hoags’ driveway (long story).
I mean I really can’t tell, this week has been that bamboozling. Monday was normal enough, but then Tuesday I went to Golden and climbed with my friend Nathan Hoag, where I took the following picture:
Pretty awesome. That was only the beginning of the week, though. Wednesday I went to Boulder for my friend Donnie’s birthday. I sang Cherry Cherry by Neil Diamond at the coolest karaoke bar I have ever been to in my life. Adam and I were there until well into the morning. Thursday night I went downtown and hung out with my friend Peter at this swanky place where his girl works. We stayed out too late that night. Friday night me and my friends Jenny, Alex, and Sydni met up with Adam and went to Boulder to see Donnie play a concert with some other groovy Boulder bands. Needless to say, it was pretty incredible. Artists like Gregory Alan Isakov and Supercollider played short sets while the incredible music scene of Boulder was on full display. It was one of those nights where you feel like you are in some really interesting film and life just seems too cool to be true.
Now I am in a coffee shop in Frisco. At least physically. Mentally, the fog hasn’t quite lifted yet. I am still fighting for my reality and wrestling with the dream world as it storms my castle walls and lays waste to my defenses. The last thing I need to do is fall asleep in public, AGAIN.
