One of my favorite tracks from Jimmy Eat World. One of those songs that makes me say, hey, life isn’t so bad, even when you’re alone and feeling older than you were a day, a week or a year before.

To me, this song says the best is always yet to come.

I don’t think I’ve ever spent a birthday alone before, I’ve always had really incredible friends to go out and play with. So this day has a host of opportunity that I probably shouldn’t waste. I should probably try to learn something new, or go on an outdoorsy adventure. I’ve never been horseback riding. That might be fun.

“Hey now, the past is told by those who win
My darling, what matters is what hasn’t been
Hey now, we’re wide awake and we’re thinking
My darling, believe your voice can mean something”
