long time no blog
so i guess i haven't blogged about anything substantial in a long time. i suppose that's because there hasn't been much happening. let's backtrack a little, shall we? jason and i went to see band of horses during acl weekend. i thoroughly enjoyed the show. it was my first time seeing them live and they definitely impressed me. i would see them again in a heartbeat. i might even travel to see them, that's how good they were! they're not really touring right now but if they ever come to a town near you, it's in your best interest to go. i didn't go to chicago on october 2 to see gomez. i had some stuff come up and i just couldn't do it. somehow, i wasn't as bummed about missing the show as i thought i would be. i wasn't particularly bummed about it at all, actually. i was more upset about not seeing all of my friends that were there but luckily i get to see quite a few of them this coming weekend in san francisco. yes, i'm FINALLY going to san francisco on friday. i feel like i've been waiting forever for this weekend to get here. i am beyond stoked to see kerry, josh, matt, meghan, kelly, erin, drew, jen and whoever else i'm missing. sorry dudes, i took an ambien a little while ago. and of course, i am so excited to see ian and buddy play TWO shows. i loves me some ian and buddy. in order to have the 4 days off to take this trip, i have to work 8 days in a row. i've just finished the 4th. halfway. i can do this! i'm kind of stressing out because i don't really have time to do any of that "pre-going out of town" stuff that needs to be done. shopping, laundry, planning what to take...things like that. i'll manage though, right? sam was in town last weekend which was super fabulous. i haven't seen her since april! that's such a long time. we had a birthday party for her and amber and lolo's. it was a total blast! we all just sat around and laughed all night. we are a pretty fucking funny bunch of people, if i do say so myself. i miss sam though, i wish she would move back! last night we went out for josh's birthday. we spent a good portion of the night at mugshots, which was kind of weird. there was a time in my life where i knew A LOT of the people hanging out there on a friday or saturday (because we went there every friday). last night i didn't see anyone that i knew. luckily someone was playing my usual jams on the jukebox so that was comforting. don't stop believin' and yoshimi battles the pink robots, that's where it's at! the only thing that would have made it better was if they played dancing with myself. now it's time for bed. 4 more days. 4 more days.
