Bloodshot

Everything has been a little radio silent recently and I’m sorry for that. Honestly? It’s just been crazy busy.

I got to meet Simple Plan last month and see Andrew McMahon perform for the first time and it’s just been a month of new music and growth and good things so far.

I won tickets off the radio for Simple Plan and got to meet them. They were amazing and super nice. Not many bands manage to put me at ease so I don’t feel awkward around them, but Simple Plan did. They remind of Set It Off the way they joke around and tease each other. Three weeks later, I won tickets from the venue to see Andrew McMachon. I was stunned by how incredible and talented he was. I loved Something Corporate and Jack’s Mannequin, but his solo stuff is amazing as well. He just puts on great show.

I also got to see Star Trek. There were just so many feelings. I definitely cried about Anton. A lot. I miss him already. It sounds ridiculous, but I fell in love with that cast back in 2009. Chris, Zach, Karl, Anton, John, Zoe, and Simon are some of my favorite actors. They are like my children, I followed their careers and went to see their movies/watch their tv shows.

Losing Anton was like losing a part of my heart. The movie did him justice though and that was what I needed.

I got moved into my apartment finally and I start school next week. I can’t wait. I still have to completely get everything unpacked before we start school, but it’s really exciting to be living in a new place.

I’ll be back to update you again soon!

Dreamcatcher

The Set It Off show was amazing. The weather in Nashville was absolutely awful, so only 150 people or so showed up.  By the end of the set, there were only 30 people left. We got to meet everyone. And let me tell you, Cody is one of the nicest band members I’ve ever met. He put me totally at ease, because he knew I was super nervous. He was the sweetest, and also gives the best hugs.

She was there too that night, but I didn’t care. There was something cathartic about singing the Set It Off songs that reminded me of her at the top of my lungs while she was feet away. There was something about Cody mirroring my emotions back to me that just let it go. Thank you all for that.

We’ve been out of school a lot of days the past three weeks for weather and snow, so I know when I get back, it’s going to be absolutely crazy. I’m going to see OM&M in April and I can’t wait. but I’m going to work my ass off until then.

Love,
