TRYING NOT TO FREAK OUT AND PANIC.
I DON’T EVEN KNOW HOW TO EXPLAIN HOW AWESOME SHE IS AND HOW MUCH I WANT THIS POSITION.
CAN’T MESS UP THIS SHORT INTERVIEW.
THIS WOULD BE A HUGE ASSET TO MY MED SCHOOL APPS AND I LOVE THIS CLASS AND AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
TRYING NOT TO PANIC.
The first step is to admit you have a problem right? I’m not really sure what it is; maybe it’s seasonal depression, maybe it’s severe anxiety, maybe it’s a case of super senioritis. Whatever it is, I’m admitting that I’m not okay right now. I’m not okay, but I will be.
After 9 years of waiting to finally see Muse, I completed my bands to see live list tonight!
UGH IT WAS SOOO GOOD! Steph and I managed to get up to the 2nd row! :]
They sang all of my favorites, even Undisclosed Desires which I thought they wouldn’t perform live. Knights of Cydonia was insane and it was fun to see my go to pump up song live. Time is Running Out was everything I could have asked for. At one point Matt jumped into the crowd and was RIGHT in front of me but the guy in front of me separated me from being able to grab Matt’s hand. :’( They sang so many songs though and played for nearly 2 hours!!!
I’m pretty sure I sprained my ankle, but it was SO worth it.

Ugh stop reminding me of how single I am, stupid evolutionary psyc textbook……
Sister: “Because they were 3 for $5 dollars and I figured I would get you one.”
Me: “Why are you telling me?”
Sister: “You seriously want me to wrap a loofah?”
My boss just asked me to move upstairs to help in the admissions office, but I’ve never worked in the admissions office. I swear I am April Ludgate when I’m working in the office for college ambassador stuff.
I have no clue what the fuck I’m supposed to be doing, they just told me to answer the Vice Chancellor’s personal phone line!!!!!!!!!! WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO EVEN SAY?
Hopefully the phone is silent for the next 45 minutes….
You don’t even understand how many hours I spent studying for this class and how this class was the bane of my existence this quarter. I put everything into that class; I was worried I wouldn’t be able to get an A, but I believed in myself and kept listening to “Eye of the Tiger” and “Knights of Cydonia” to pump me up, and I DID IT!!!!!!!!
I just need my art history grade to come out to verify whether or not I got a 4.0 this quarter. I’m a little worried because my essay was definitely sub par for my normal standards and it might keep me from my 4.0, but the As in my other classes was more important, so c’est la vie.
Seriously though, I worked so hard between school, dealing with RA stuff which is pretty much a full time job, working 8+ hours at my internship, and still working giving tours at school. I’m so proud of myself and glad that my hard work paid off. This year is my VICTORY LAP!!!
Time to TREAT (MY) SELF!!!!!!!!!!
Tonight was so happy, yet so sad at the same time. I seriously felt like Chris Traeger the entire way to the concert, knowing that this was going to be a very emotional night for me.
I first heard of Jack’s Mannequin my freshman year of high school when I was just 14 years old from my good friend Britt. Everything in Transit pretty much became the anthem of my youth after that. I first saw Andy perform on Halloween 2008 and I was dressed like Waldo and in the front row; he promptly called me out and thankfully some random person recorded my moment with Andy (7:49 in the video, although you can’t see me in it). That summer of 2009 was the summer completely defined by Everything in Transit ; I literally spent every day at the beach with an old friend, and I made sure to always have that album on repeat the entire time. Later that fall, life happened and the darkest period of my life ensued. I spent nearly every night for months crying myself to sleep listening to a playlist consisting of Jack’s Mannequin and a few other select artists. Music, especially Jack’s Mannequin, was literally the only thing that kept me sane during that period, and was what kept me fighting through the endless months of depression.
Tonight, 8 years later, I was able to see Jack’s Mannequin one last time, and on 11/11 nonetheless. Everything about the setlist was perfect and he sang nearly all of Everything in Transit tonight!!!!! He performed: “Holiday from Real,” “Crashing,” “Release Me,” “Spinning,” “Annie Use Your Telescope,” “Amy, I,” “Swim,” “Hostage,” “Bloodshot,” “The Resolution,” “Restless Dream,” “The Mixed Tape,” “I’m Ready”, “Hammers and Strings (A Lullaby),” “Bruised,” and “Dark Blue”, with an encore of “Konstantine,” “MFEO,” and “La La Lie.” I had originally recorded “Swim” too, but my phone cut it out and I didn’t get any of it. :’( ”Bruised” was AMAZING and everyone got really into it, I don’t even know how to explain how great that moment was. The encore killed me though; even though it wasn’t a SoCo concert, Andy performed “Konstantine” and I freaked out because I had only heard him perform it once during the SoCo reunion tour. As if I weren’t already happy enough, he followed that up with “MFEO” which is probably my favorite song if I had to choose one. It was perfect, the entire night was just amazing. Unfortunately I didn’t get to meet Andy after the show, but who knows, maybe someday I’ll meet him after a show for whatever it is he decides to do next.
For now, thank you for the music that continues to saves me time and time again. Goodbye dear friend, goodbye Dear Jack. <3
I aced a quiz I thought I for sure failed! This was by far the hardest quiz I have ever had with my favorite professor out of the 3 classes I’ve taken from him. The average was a 68% and I got an A without the curve, wooooooo! Now I definitely don’t have to take the final for this class, SUCCESS!
