Yes, it is I, the humble creator of this humble blog. It is Aidan.
This is quite an unplanned visit that I'm making, and quite honestly your current administrator of this blog (who is doing a FANTASTIC job, by the way) doesn't yet know that I'm stopping by. But to be honest, I didn't know I'd be stopping by myself until moments ago.
I'll be honest. Life has been CRAZY since I left this humble blog to Imogen what seems like ages ago - I've been pretty much non-stop since then. Since that day, my relationship with my girlfriend has grown stronger, I am very close to becoming a senior in high school, and in order to try and cope with the piles of homework, projects, etc. that keep coming up, I have (of course) taken to music. I have, admittedly, expanded my music taste quite a bit since last year to include the heavier side of the spectrum (along the lines of "If The Trees Had Eyes...").
However, along this journey called life, I have noticed one important thing.
Your first loves never really leave you.
And Owl City, for me, was one of those first loves.
Throughout my years of growing and expanding in this world, Adam's music has never really stopped being the soundtrack to it. My Spotify playlists often include Mr. Young's work, both new and old. And as I type this post for you now, Saltwater Room plays softly in the background, as it often does in my journey. Owl City never really left me, nor did I ever leave it. And I doubt that it ever will.
I stop by the blog quite often to check up on it. I like to think of it as a dad calling his son who is away at college - independent, yes, on to bigger and better things... But still grounded, in even the smallest of ways.
I hope to hear from all of you very soon.
Thank you for everything.
