Wellll, it’s for sure guaranteed. $60,000 all together $15,000 a year. I was told it was one of the highest scholarships given out. oh my gosh. I’m so freaking out right now. This is so exciting! I think I can say for sure that I’m going to Simpson now! :D
It’s like, I’ll go through the week and I’m like, eh, why do I like him? I don’t even know him. Why would he ever notice me? Then I see him Monday nights and it’s like, ah, cute nerdy musician. I want to talk to him and get to know him so bad.
It’s not like people only add people they’re close friends with. I don’t even know or talk to most of my fb friends. At least I know we have friends in common. I kind of just want to press that Friend Request button and see what happens…I mean, the worst thing is that he denies me but we don’t talk so it would only make community band a tiny bit awkward…
I got a letter from Simpson that said I would be getting at least $60,000 for my years in college; at least $15,000 a year. I’m totally confused about it though. Hopefully my counselor will explain it soon. My mother said that if I got that, it would be a big plus in her books. So that would be amazing since it’s the only school I want to go to.
I don’t think I’m going to school tomorrow since it’s only three classes. I’ll still pick Chelsea up and drop off the snacks I bought for the band and the school’s Sam’s Club card(I felt powerful with it today, haha).
I feel sick. I woke up this morning with a stomach ache and a sore throat. I’m pretty sure the tummy ache was because I didn’t realize a two scoop ice cream cone in Dateland really meant two pints of ice cream in a waffle cone. So. Much. Ice cream. I was determined to finish it though…bad bad bad idea for so many reasons. I slept in most of my classes. Sax lessons were rough but he let me out early. I couldn’t even read the music right. It was ridiculous because I totally had that etude down at lunch. So after my lessons I went to get some soy ice cream. I didn’t want to mess my stomach up again by getting normal ice cream. Boy do I love this stuff. I might drink some Earl Grey tea I have too. I haven’t opened the box yet but I’ve heard this brand is the best.
The whole left side of my head is in pain. And my right arm. I don’t know why that is though. I have community band tonight. Don’t really want to go but I want to talk to Justin and see that nerdy boy.
I’m debating on whether or not I should go to school tomorrow. I have too many music performances this month and next month. I don’t have time to be sick. Ugh.
Some Things Just Don’t Wash Out. Listened to it a couple times Saturday but Sunday is was the only thing I listened to. You know how annoying it is to be driving and have to change cds when it’s played through once but you don’t really want to listen to it again? Well, that’s definitely not the case with this album. Three hour drive home plus whatever amount of time we drove around Tempe before leaving. I probably listened to it over a dozen times. Perfect driving music.
I Love Thift Store Shopping In A College Based Town
Because the clothing is amazing. Got this dress that will look super cute shortened an inch and with a belt. Got a vintage looking brooch and a necklace. And this awesome bag! Its all vintage and old lady status.
I want to sit in a park and feed birds now.
About to watch Beauty and the Beast. Got my tickets for Shrek the Musical and SPRING AWAKENING!!! Didn’t realize SA was coming to tempe. The stage seats were all sold out. :( someday I’ll sit on that stage…someday.
There are a lot of little girls dressed up as Belle. It’s so cute. I want to be Belle.
It was funny. True, but funny coming from her. She told me,’for such an indie kid, it’s odd that you love Starbucks so much.’ I told her, ‘I know. That’s why I’m going to open my own vegan cafe someday.’
I was second row. Dead center. Mountain Man was pretty awesome. I didn’t really like them the only time I listened to them on myspace but they were good. I ended up buying their cd.
Jonsi came out. Everyone cheered. One thing about this crowd…This type of music (both Mountain Man and Jonsi) creates a whole new concert atmosphere that I’ve never experienced before. Most of the time (save for the really powerful songs, the encores, and the ends of songs) everyone was dead quiet. It was like they were absorbing every sight and sound that came from the stage. People were just bobbing their heads and listening. It was intense. I’ve never seen a crowd so into any music before. The guy in front of me was crazy sometimes though. Like during the favorite songs. He would shake his head and jump around. He gave hand hearts to Jonsi. He was amusing. I’m jealous of him though because he got the set list at the end. I almost had it too…So close…
I filmed a lot of the show. Sometimes it was just the sound though. I got tired of holding my arms up.
I loved when the bass drum would fill the room…So powerful. Like a heartbeat. Like life. That’s what Jonsi reminds me of; Life. Like if life had a single specific sound. He would be it. His music fills me up with hope and life.
After the show I bought merch. The Mountain Man cd, a Jonsi poster, and Go Quiet, a live acoustic dvd performance of his album. It was signed too. Then I went out to go meet him. I met some nice people. I leant out my sharpie to a couple if they would take my picture when Jonsi came around. Then a lady before them gave me a dollar to let her borrow the sharpie. Two girls behind me were freaking out. They were so excited to meet him. We moved closer and closer to the front of the line. Jonsi was giving out hugs. People were laughing things he said. We were getting more nervous. He gets to our little group. I think he got confused. He took a picture with the guy in front of me twice and he almost didn’t sign my poster(I was on his bad side; it was understandable). I got him to sign my poster though and I got a picture with him and I asked him for a hug. It was the best.
But he took my sharpie! I noticed as he turned around and went on to sign more things. I didn’t want to ask him for it back though. That would be rude. And awkward. He can have it. ahh, Jonsi has my sharpie! How exciting.
I went to ihop and there were a bunch of people from the concert (I noticed because a girl had the poster I had under her chair). One of the guys had shirt that said Holden Caulfield. It was cool. There was this guy with this girl a few booths in front of me who looked like my friend Eddie. But older thinner, with facial hair, and cute. I mean, dang, if that what he’s going to look like when he’s older I’ll get with him now. Ahh, just kidding. I don’t like him. Buut that guy was really cute.
Anyway, tonight was amazing. I wish I listened to Jonsi longer. I unknowingly listened to Sigur Ròs a few years ago because I had a friend who liked them and they were cool sounding but I didn’t really get into Icelandic stuff until I read the page of Alex and Jonsi in my VegNews magazine this summer.
Oh yeah, there was a guy in diagonal from me(That super tall guy I mentioned earlier today). He was boyfriends with this guy who was very feminine who was friends with the crazy guy in front of me. Anyway, he really had to go to the bathroom but he didn’t want to fight the crowd. So he got an empty water bottle…I’m not sure if he actually used it…But if he did…Very awkward.
I’ll probably remember more details later. So tired now. Time to go to sleep. I get to sleep in today. And I’m going to see Beauty and the Beast tomorrow. :D
Everyone looks college aged. And then there’s me; a little high school senior. They’re all with their friends and significant others too. I want a significant other who enjoys jonsi so I could go to this with him.
Two hours til it starts. Thirty minutes til the doors open. Nervous. Excited. Kind of bored right now.
So my mother was showing someone my senior picture and this guy near her asks, “is that your daughter?” And she said yeah. He said, “How old is she?” She told him 17. He replied, “She’s very pretty. Now if you said she was 19 or 20 I would have said daamn, that girl is fiine.”
I saw an old friend and hung out with some people I haven’t hung out with in a long while. It felt like old times. Except it wasn’t like old times. I realized just how much everyone has changed. I don’t really know them anymore. Though I feel like I’ve changed, compared to my friends I feel like a static character.
I was excited to see my friend and hang out at Denny’s, but I realized that I had more fun there without all those people who showed up. Like last week or the week before. The people who went to those nights made Denny’s fun. I’m not saying tonight wasn’t fun; it was. It just wasn’t what I expected. It’s like when you get really excited for something and hype it all up and when the time comes, it turns out to be less than what you hoped for. Ya know?
Anyway, I finally got to play Harry Potter Scene It though. It was fuuun. Totally won.
Now I need sleep. Going to see Jonsi tomorrow. Excited.
I Finally Got In Touch With Chad Sugg About My Good Years Package.
As of a few minutes ago it was sitting no more than five feet away from him, all ready to go. I should get it sometime around Thursday. Ah, I’ve been waiting so long. I’m ecstatic to hear I’ll finally be getting it.
Tonight is a football game against a school we know we’re going to beat(our first win of the season) and Denny’s afterward with friends.
omg..you're a nerdfighter..please don't fight meh! D: lol. well my name's Bryan..obviously. thanks for the follow. tell me a bit about yourself besides what's in your "about me". :]
haha, Nerdfighters are nerds who fight for awesome so I won’t be fighter you anytime soon. lol. Wellll, I’m a senior in high school. I make vlogs with a few other people. I love indie/acoustic music and harry potter. uhm, I don’t know what else to say so I guess that’s it for now. :)
Totally my fault though. I thought I could make it but the car was going too fast(I’m use to 35 mph, which is really 40, not 45mph, which is really 50). Next time I’ll just wait patiently like I usually do.
My friend and I had a good laugh though. I didn’t crash which is all that matters.
p.s. After I dropped my friend off, I drove by this house that has a phone booth in it’s driveway. It reminded me of the TARDIS and I thought, “wouldn’t that be awesome if someone had a random TARDIS sitting in their yard?” I might just have to do that someday.
