It's friggin early and I'm awake for no other reason than the fact that I'm having anxieties. I feel completely stressed out and hope that I don't lose my mind in the process. A list of responsibilities that will stretch towards the mountains of Colorado have me mumbling to myself.

Plus I think I'm coming down with a cold or some illness. Yesterday afternoon my body just crashed. I couldn't do anything. The attempt of going for a bike ride became an attempt to stay awake whilst riding. It was a strange feeling. Kind of like being at the dentist/doctor and being given a sedative.

As I type this I keep nodding off. Perhaps another attempt at sleep is needed. Here I go. Goodnight.. Part 2.
Peace, mike park

PS-I've been trying to come up with a contest for the punkvoter tour that I'm doing with Anti-Flag and this is what I've come up with. For each show, I'm going to give away 2 tickets to one person. All I ask in return is that you buy my record. It's pretty selfish on my part, but this way I'll be able to save you money on tickets(you'll save around $25) and I'll get to share my music. Already have my record? Well, give it to somebody as a gift. Sound fair? I hope so. Here's a list of all the dates for the tour:
18th-Portland, Or @ Roseland Theatre
19th-Seattle, Wa @ the Showbox
