For the last few weeks...maybe even the last couple months...I have been desperately searching the internet for tickets to see Sugarland and Matt Nathanson at The Big E (a 2 week fair that's kind of a big deal around here.) The show was sold-out and all the ebay-ers and ticket brokers wanted ridiculous amounts of $$$ for tickets, and since I'm only working part-time til the end of October I couldn't really afford it. So anyway...searching for tickets up until the day of the show (which was today) and I pretty much gave up, But I decided I would just go and listen outside the arena because it's was outdoors and I could still hear everything.

This afternoon, my mom went to the fair with some friends and heard that they had released tickets. So she calls me to tell me (even though we really weren't speaking because of a fight we had Monday...but I digress) and I call the box office to see if I can buy some over the phone. Long story short (not really) they won't let me buy over the phone and my mom waits in line for me and buys me a pair a tickets. 12th row. And I do a happy dance!

I've been dying to see Sugarland forever and they put on such a fun show. And I looooooove Matt Nathanson. I liked his show just as much as Sugarland...if not more. C'mon, he sang Don't Stop Believin' by Journey. AWESOME! Plus, he's wicked charming and funny! After the show we got our CDs signed by him and he was super nice. The best part was that he knew how to spell my name...no one ever spells my name right without me spelling it for them. I just may be in love...Collapse )

So yeah...had a blast. Totally made my day!

I will not cry today. I will not cry today. I will not cry today.

Today would have been my brother's 22nd birthday. And I'm determine to celebrate this day. So I will not cry today. Even though people are making it very hard. Someone commented on my mother's facebook with this beautiful memory and it almost had me...

"I remember when Justin was born. You called ME at 2 am. I remember seeing you guys in the hospital the next day. I remember Caitlyn squealing like a little pig because she had a baby brother. She wouldn't shut up! It was really funny. I remember you in the neonatal intensive care because he was in the incubator and you couldn't pick him up, you were rubbing his feet. Caitlyn was next to you, the nurse snuck her in, and she was helping you rub his feet, looking up at you at the same time. That was my first memory of you guys. And your dad! You would have thought HE was the father!"

Like I said, I am gonna celebrate this day. Every year, we went to the Big E (my mom, my brother, and I) for his birthday. And every year, we slide down the Giant Slide. So in honor of this, we are going to the Big E, like we did every other year, and we are going down the Giant Slide.

So Happy Birthday 22nd Justin! I miss you and love you and hope you have a big slice of cake up there in heaven.

So Verm (my bestest buddy and heartsdesiire) has been talking about her daily horoscopes a lot lately. And it made me a little curious. So I checked my daily horoscope for the last few days...and yesterday's was pretty accurate.

Your intuition is strong, but it isn't perfect. Don't beat yourself up about it.

So, I've been working as a nanny for a little over a year now. And the family I work for just had another baby. Yesterday was my second day alone with both kids - a 2-year-old girl and 1-month-old boy - and it was such an emotional experience. The little girl is still getting used to having to share everyones attention and I could tell that on this particular day she was getting very frustrated. It broke my heart a little. Juggling the 2 of them was harder than I thought it would be. And even though I know I did the best I could, I couldn't help but feel a little guilty.

But, I must say that even a rough day at my job is probably better than a regular day at a boring old desk job. I mean, I get paid to spend my days blowing bubbles, reading stories and cuddling with some of the cutest kids ever. If you ever hear me complain about my job, feel free to roll your eyes and tell me to shut up. LOL.

So yeah...anyway...horoscopes are fun! I may have to make a habit of checking mine.

OH! So...I've been writing some stories lately. Up until recently I hadn't written anything for a long time. And one day I just started writing again. (I get random spurts of creative energy that just has to come out in one way or another. Usually it's graphics, but lately my imagination has just taken over.) So...I finished a couple of short stories and I've actually worked up the nerve share them. So if anyone is bored enough to indulge me and give them a read just head on over to makebeliieve. I am by no means a serious writer. I just do it for fun (really whenever the mood stikes me) but hopefully you'll like it!

(There Vermie! A real post just for you!)

"I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together."

"I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best."

"Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring."

"If you can make a girl laugh, you can make her do anything."

"A wise girl kisses but doesn't love, listens but doesn't believe, and leaves before she is left."

"When it comes down to it, I let them think what they want. If they care enough to bother with what I do, then I'm already better than them."

"I don't mind living in a man's world, as long as I can be a woman in it."

"The nicest thing for me is sleep, then at least I can dream."

"I want to grow old without facelifts. I want to have the courage to be loyal to the face I have made."

"It's all make believe, isn't it?"

"I don't mind making jokes, but I don't want to look like one."

"The real lover is the man who can thrill you by kissing your forehead or smiling into your eyes or just staring into space."

"I'm good, but not an angel. I do sin, But I'm not the devil. I'm pretty, But not beautiful. I have friends, but I'm not the peacemaker. I'm just a small girl in a big world trying to find someone to love."

You talk too much.
Maybe that's your way
Of breaking up the silence
That fills you up.
But it doesn't sound the same
When no one's really listening

We stumble into our lives:
Reach for a hand to hold.
And any wonder
We need to find
A certain something, certain.

Turn out the light
And what are you left with?
Open up my hands
And find out they're empty.
Press my face to the ground
I've gotta find a reason.
Just scratching around
For something to believe in:
Something to believe in.

You have too much.
You're spending all your time
Collecting and discovering
It's not enough.
And no matter how you try,
You never find the one you want.

We stumble into our lives:
Without a hand to hold.
And any wonder
We need to find
A certain something, certain.

Turn out the light
And what are you left with?
Open up my hands
And find out they're empty.
Press my face to the ground
I've gotta find a reason.
Still scratching around
For something to believe in:
Something to believe in.

Surveys can get boring and they always ask the same questions....BUT I saw this on Facebook and thought it was different...

Using only SONG NAMES from ONE ARTIST, cleverly answer these questions (Wikipedia,or your IPOD, is your friend). It might be a lot harder than you think.

PICK YOUR ARTIST: Britney Spears (I also tried it with BSB, Kelly Clarkson, and Sugarland...but couldn't answer all the questions.)

19 Questions...Collapse )
