Hi! It’s me! Lily!!!

I’m glad to be home.  I liked spending time with everyone and it had its good points and all that, but truth be told…  well, I’m glad to be home.  Yuki had a really good time, Grace had a pretty good time, Jack really showed his true colors (in a good way)…  it was a good trip, but I’m glad to be home.  I don’t think I’d have wanted to do that for another week.

I guess I’m not a camping kinda girl.

I like nature but not that much.

Crystal is…  really improving on the guitar.  I know she’s only been at it for a few weeks, so she’s not going to be some shredding guitarist, but…  she’s not bad for the time she’s spent.  She needs to understand theory better but she can play a quite a few chords and pretty decently…  she can do some simple songs in a folksy style, so that’s pretty cool.  Maybe she’ll be ready for playing in a group in a couple of months.  I’m not really worried about my part.  I’m a pretty accomplished musician, I just need to get used to the drums and I’ll be fine.  Beth’s been practicing too… she’s got quite a voice on her when she chooses to use it.  As we learned when she and Sabby had fights…

I could stand to brush up on theory a bit too, though.  It’s a surprisingly complicated topic…

Anyway…  otherwise, back to the grind.  Back to school for me, back to work for Jack, back to school for Yuki, back to school for Grace…  it’s like it never happened.  And…  I dunno.  That’s not the most ringing endorsement for a destination, I guess.

I don’t want to sound ungrateful.  I’m not.  I love how Liz’s family has adopted me, and it was nice to spend time with everyone, and…  I guess not everything can be a hit, right?

Maybe it’s just colored by being sick through half of it.

Oh well.

Next up… Ai and the aidols coming here around Christmastime.  That should be really fun.  Five Japanese girls running around Austin.  We may never be the same.  Haha!!!

Love you all!!! ❤️
