Four of my favorite bands have been my favorite since I was under fifteen and have seen two this week. My best friends and I have been together for either ten/eleven years or about five years. I worked at my first job for 3-1/2 years and I've been at my second and third for six months already. I've wanted to study psychology and be a hair dresser since I was in elementary school... and then wanted to work in the music industry and film since high school. I don't majorly change, I stay the same. I know exactly who I am, what I want and what I'm going to be doing... I just feel like I know what's going to happen in my life. It all makes sense and it's all me.
now, with all of that rambling being said... I want to talk about the past couple of days: (because a LOT has gone on)
On Tuesday, I was able to get off early and see one of my fourth favorite band of all time. AND YES, I do have the top five numbered... haha. I've been in love with this band, Motion City Soundtrack, since 2006 when I was fifteen. I believe I saw them for the first time in 2007... they are always one of my favorite live bands, so it was such a great show. I had just seen them at south by southwest in March earlier this year, but I love them every single time. Also, on Monday, I had gone to a local petstore after work and fell in love with a little French Bulldog. I've had my heart set on an english bulldog, even after I had one last year for a brief time, but I've decided that when I'm able to... I'll be adopting a little French Bulldog since they don't get to be as big as an English... and they look like little chubby adorable pigs :)
And today, I saw my third favorite band of all time... and the first "punk" band that I've ever truly fell in love with. I was thirteen and everything began with this band. They are the sole reason that I'm in love with music today... and after seeing them tonight, I remember exactly why. I haven't felt this way after a show since I was in high school. I needed this. Live shows are what kept me sane in high school... and I had no doubt in my mind that it was the industry that I was going to be working in. Since I've gotten older, my wants and priorities have definitely changed... but, after tonight... I feel like I might be making a few adjustments. I was so inspired simply by one of my favorite bands. They played their first full length album in it's entirety... it was the first time that I heard most of those songs performed even since I've been seeing them since 2007 as well. Tonight was perfect and reminded me of who I am, who I want to be... and who I will make sure that I am. I will just say that I do miss when my life revolved around music.
and also since today is the day after Halloween... which I worked 14 hours.. I bought a shit ton of candy! So, this has been my life lately, I don't know where I'm headed, but I'm happy to be on this roller-coaster and to be me.
