I have alot of catching up to do :P.
Gah, I don't know what my problem is, I guess I've just been busy, then I come home and be lazy. But I'm going to check up on everyone's blogs to see what's been going down :), and return any comments I haven't already.

The most exciting thing I'd have to say I've done recently, is go to The Academy Is concert with Hey Monday, Carolina Liar, and We the Kings :). It was such a good show, really. I reccomend going if it comes to your area. I've always liked TAI, but the band that really blew me away was Hey Monday. So much enthusiam, the girl was amazing. She had so much energy, a crazy-good voice, and the rest of the band was good as well. I went to this with Amanda and my friend Jenna, by the way. We were actually pretty close, which was quite exciting :). Very cramped and sweaty, but exciting nonetheless. I love that about concerts. Under very few other circumstances would you actually like being smushed in between so many other sweaty, sometimes loud and obnoxious people. But the music connects you, and suddenly those annoying factors diminish. So overall, the concert was amazing, and I can't really accurately describe it, because things like that, you just have to experience for yourself. After the show was over though, we got to meet Hey Monday because they were walking around the venue talking to people, it was awesome. We talked to them for a bit, got some signatures/pictures, and headed back to our boring little hometown.

Other than that, things have been going alright. I've had a few minor issues going on, but I've dealt with them, and hopefully things get better :). I've been driving all over, and I love it, minus the price of freaking gas. Tonight I went over to Tom and Julie's house, well Bob and Cathy's actually, to celebrate their birthday a day early. I got Julie this funny poster that I've known she wanted for the longest time, and both Amanda and I contributed to this winter hat from Zumiez since she's going snowboarding this year. Then I got Tom an Avenged Sevenfold cd because he loves that band. So yupp, they enjoyed it :P. We all had a good time hanging out, like always, and the food was delicious. I got to experience zebra cake again, mmm. One of Julie's presents was a ukelele, how cool is that?! Plus she got moccasins, I want some, they're so simple and comfortable. I know I've skipped over alot, but I'll try to get better at this.

Yay! You're back (:

The concert sounds like it was a lot of fun! I love that--how the music can just make you (almost) completely forget about the smelly sweaty people smashing up against you, haha. That's awesome that you got to meet Hey Monday too :D

More zebra cake! Hurrah! And a ukelele? That is awesome! I've been wanting some moccasins too, they're so comfy.

I will definitely check out Hey Monday!! For sure!!

I love your blog! its totally awesome!! haha about the blonde moments. yes, i will definitely have to agree with you on The Dark Knight. The Joker is by far my most favorite character!! Ah, he's just awesome!! Thanks. :) Yes, I really hate it when movies based on books suck!! There's this book called "The Bell Jar" and they are thinking of making it into a movie! I'm very excited for it because I read the book and it was amazing!!! So yeah :D

oh and one more band you should check out would have to be WHITE LIGHT RIOT!!!!!! CHECK THEM OUT!!!!!!!

Wow...those things are still around. My brother loved those things as a kid. Haha.

That's cool that you had fun at the concert. Sounds like a blast. I'm seriously itching to go to one, just haven't found the right group to go see.

Aww, those presents sound so sweet for Julie =D AH I want mocassins!

Thanks for checking in with my blog, I definitely understand the busy schedule, it's just so stellar that you caught up on my posts :D Hahahahaa and if I had a medal for my cheesecake eating skillz, I would certainly wear it ;) Good idea for next time !

Ohhhh that's wonderful that your concert kicked ASS! XD WTK, TAI, Carolina Liar.. what a lineup! And I seriously have been meaning to check out Hey Monday since I saw an ad in AP Mag, so now I defintitely will ... haha those sweating bodies just seem to add to the adrenaline and overall concert experience; love it. Did you buy any merch?

I remember I hate zebra cakes a lot in first grade. Ah . . . good times . . .

Taylor-Tot said...

well, the concert sounded like it was great :) glad ya'll had fun ^_^
as for the moccasins, WHO DOESNT WANT SOME?!!! lol

but, ya, having her stuff, or some of it anyway, is nice, and at the same time, makes it that much worse, its like, i want to always have her near, but that also comes with a constant reminder that shes gone, that i'll never see her again, that even if i need her, she wont be here... :'(

Natalie! said...

Yeah... hopefully the movie will still be pretty good. Otherwise I will be very dissapointed, because I don't want those books to be messed up. I mean, if the movie is crap, people that see the movie but don't read the books will get the wrong impression of the book XP

I really like the purple one too! But apparently my friend does too, and she called dibs on getting that color right before I could ): But I still like the blue a lot too. Aw, the memory scrapbook idea sounds like it would be fun to make! I think I will definitely try it... I have enough crazy and weird pictures of me and my friends to make a whole memory scrapbook novel :D

The show sounds great!! I've never actually been to one, but I have many friends that are into them and go, and I hear they're super fun :)

Ahhh I can't wait to drive :) It's still a good seven months away, but I know it'll be here before I know it. It's kind of intimidating, really. I remember thinking about how it was so far away, when I was a kid. But, now it's right around the corner!!!

Taylor-Tot said...
