Awakening to the Canadian Dream that is not Gone because This Is my Life

Oh my goodness! Switchfoot last night was sooo amazing! Even if Mel doesn't think so but Katie and I were having so much fun. So we waited outside in this short-ish line for about 20 or so minutes and then when we finally got our tickets ripped we got to go straight in to the "hall" because we didn't need to go to coat check with just our hoodies. So we skipped over about 100 people! Oh yeah! Then we waited in line to buy stuff and the guy at the Copeland booth was so nice. He had no change for a twenty because I only spent about $2 worth on a pin and sticker. So the guy at the Switchfoot booth was a little rude and rushed and was the only one working but I got an oversized t-shirt because they had no smalls left and a sticker. Both stickers are going on my guitar case! Then I went back to the Copeland booth and gave the guy the $2. Yeah it was awesome.

Copeland was pretty good. There stuff was a bit mellower minus about one song people did get into. But I actually did like their music. They seemed like sweet guys. Then about half hour later they were done Switchfoot came on stage and played AMAZINGLY! geez. I just found out from my friend who was there that the guy in the crowd actually didn't keep the guitar, a security person took it away. *relief* Then then yeah. So amazing. Chem 6A was the song that was chosen online for our city. Crazy. Mostly stuff from the last three cds were sung. good stuff. And I got lots of videos of them and a few pictures. Katie and me sang to Gone and then I sang to every song they played except for one. Because I'm not really found of Shadow proves the Sunshine. yup. Amazing.

But I got to go before school starts. This morning when I turned on my mp3 the song was Oh! Gravity by Switchfoot. XD. Gah the music has been following me! But I love it so <3

Awakening, Oh!Gravity, Meant to live, 24, Dare you to move, American [Canadian and they referred to it] Dream, Gone, Chem 6A, This is your Life and so much more!

Switchfoot! Left Foot!

W00T! Switchfoot tomorrow night! This post is a tribute to them!

Maybe I've been the problem
Maybe I’m the one to blame
But even when I turn it off and blame myself
The outcome feels the same

I've been thinking maybe I've been partly cloudy
Maybe I’m the chance of rain
And maybe I’m overcast
And maybe all my luck’s washed down the drain

I've been thinking about everyone, everyone
You look so lonely

But when I look at the stars, when I look at the stars
When I look at the stars, I see someone else
When I look at the stars, the stars
I feel like myself

Stars looking at a planet, watching entropy and pain
And maybe start to wonder
How the chaos in our lives could pass as sane
I've been thinking about the meaning of resistance
Of a hope beyond my own
And suddenly the infinite and penitent begin to look like home
I've been thinking about everyone, everyone you look so empty

But when I look at the stars, when I look at the stars
When I look at the stars, I see someone else
When I look at the stars, the stars
I feel like myself

Everyone, everyone feels so lonely
Everyone yeah everyone feels so empty

When I look at the stars,
When I look at the stars,
When I look at the stars,
I feel like myself
When I look at the stars
The stars
I see someone

School's Out for the Summer

Not really. I kind of wish it was now, but there's only a few months to go. It's probably because I have Friday and Monday off, four day weekend! And then I get March 1st and 2nd off too. So much crap has been shoved on me in the last few days and weeks and two months:

1) Switchfoot concert (giant yay)
2) MissionsFest (yay)
3) Braces coming off (finally yay)
4) Might be able to go to my cousins wedding in Ontario by plane for a weekend (yay)
5) Band is coming together (yay)
6) and then it might fall apart (nay)
7) because my Best Friend might be moving (nay)
8) Going to Ontario for the summer (yay)
9) Working & going to camp (yay)
10) Which means I need to quit my job (yay and nay)

I can't even write what I want because there are too many emotions free flowing into their own free style right now.

Money Doesn't Grow On Trees; It IS the Tree

Time sure flies, especially during a busy & hectic week. My weeks are always hectic now. Especially with work. I need to quit. Seriously. My math homework and study is killing me. Well what do I want? ... hmmm a car mostly. And maybe some guitar gear. And then I have to save money for Birthday gifts. And Then Sarah & me both are getting new guitar straps. Egad. It's so nasty. I think I could settle for just the truck I want and be quite happy for a while after that without buying anything (minus concerts & cd's of course)

I think I need to quit.

On a lighter note ;;
Next Friday = day off school! but no youth =( but Sarah's coming over =)
That Sunday = Toboggan Church Social thing & Focus
Then Monday = another day off school (Go Family Day!)
And Thursday = Switchfoot Concert. (OHEMGEE IT'S SO CLOSE! AHHHHH! *mosh*)
Finally Friday = MissionsFest

It doesn't matter that I've fallen

So another day at school. Hmm larvely [lovely + larva = not lovely at all]. I have guitar lessons tonight which I'm actually pumped about for once. Maybe it's because Sarah and me are actually making progress together. My mom [insert 'your' mom jokes] actually was listening to us playing together at my house and she thougth it sounded really good. Which means we DO have potential. I just have to get feedback from people at Youth [aka Bryce, Jon, Patricia, Tasha and the other groupies]. Let's see:

Switchfoot concert: Less then a month away! Day before MissionsFest
MissionsFest: Less then a month away. Day after Switchfoot/Copeland
Focus: So soon! Sarah you better come this time! And I'll see you there Michelle!
Church Toboggan Social: Same day as Focus; Sarah you should come to that!
The Sixteenth: Day off of school! RAWK ON! Almost as good as a concert. But no singing or bands =(

It doesn't matter that I've fallen
I've done it a million times before
Which means I've been picked up just as many times
