If Greta Van Fleet are that wonderful horrible thing called zeitgeisty, that zeitgeist is defined by desire to escape to a fantasized past where the battles were cleaner and the battle lines simpler than today's appear to be. Hello you, hello me, hello people we used to be We've been through it all yet we're still the same We might still have a way to go -- from "A Rock 'n Roll Fantasy" by the Kinks. By late , nostalgia seemed to be outlasting the lifespans of most fashion trends and collective middle-age crises. That October, approximately three years after Washington Post journalist Hank Stuever diagnosed our culture re: Fuller House as having reached " the point where nostalgia becomes more like necrophilia ", a rock album with undertones of eco-consciousness and sitar-y, shag-carpet-colored overtones was released.

I told her that I want to only be friends. I'd just like to add that unless you're happy being with her as a full believing Mormon, don't stick around in the hopes that she'll de-convert. If you think your girlfriend's resistance to being exposed to anything critical of Mormonism sounds cult-like, you are right. If she identifies as a Mormon, then she probably takes her faith seriously, and it means a lot to her. We were planning on doing it on memorial day weekend so we could get married on a sunday between graduation and residency but that is a Jewish holiday.
