Everything is pretty much awesome lately.~★~
What's been going on with me in 2010?
★I finally got my tattoo. Some time immediately following that, I had hooch touch up a small little stroke that I neglected to put in my final drawing. I'm not sure if I'm done with it. Chances are I'm not, but for now I'm satisfied. I love it, and I really feel like it reflects the inside of my heart.
★I celebrated Valentine's Day with the most perfect man ever put on this earth. We went to some cozy little restaurant in Birmingham called the Village Tavern and just all around had a wonderful night of gooey-ness.
★I went to see AFI, a band I have been embarrassingly crazy about for years. I was close enough to be sweated on by the band and it was an awesome show.
★I finished my second year of college. I failed one class, made C's and B's in the others, but I worked hard and did my best and am very proud of the grades I made.
★I was in this little indie film a few friends were doing. It was kind of cheesy, but it was a cool experience and I really felt independent for the first time while doing it. I had to come up with my own place to stay, things to eat, and had to spend all day working my ass off with only a few hours of sleep every night.
★My baby brother graduated from middle school!
★I was invited to Taylor's family reunion. I got to meet his brother who is in the navy, and tons of extended family he didn't even know existed. After three years of being completely segregated from my boyfriend's family and their functions, it feels beyond amazing to be welcomed so whole-heartedly by this boy's family.
★On the same day as my brother's birthday, I started a set of dreadlocks. Audra did a set on me about a week earlier, but they didn't turn out, so I started them over. They're teaching me a lot about patience, and about loving myself. This isn't a lifestyle for me; it's just a hairdo. But one that I love quite a bit.
★Me and Taylor went to Huntsville to see Shinedown, who is probably my second or third favorite band on earth, and definitely my favorite band in America. They were part of the Carnival of Madness, with 10 Years, Sevendust, Puddle of Mudd, and Chevelle. I'd never heard of Sevendust before, but (other than the fanatic guy next to me) I loved them. Of course Shinedown was beyond amazing. I creamed myself and cried.
There's a ton of stuff coming up that I'm thrilled about.
Tomorrow, hooch is probably going to pierce my ears.
On August 1st, me and Taylor are celebrating our first anniversary! ♥
On August 7th, the Gallery is throwing a huge showcase at Max and Siri's house as part of our usual back to school bash. It's gonna rock. Srsly.
On August 10th-ish, I'm moving back to Tuscaloosa, with my best friend as my roommate, in the coolest dorm ever, which is a part of the best honor society ever, in the same building as the best boyfriend ever.
On August 30th, I'm going to see Dir en grey for the third time, this time with Apocalyptica. And I'm bringing Taylor :)
In September, I'm getting to see Disturbed, Halestorm, and Avenged Sevenfold.
And that's as much awesome as I can handle being excited for right now.
Life is finally going somewhere in the right direction.
I just hope things keep it up! ^-^
