"i dreamed of going to Nashville, put my money down and placed my bets..."
So I've been long over due for an update. What better time than 3:30 am right? oh well I don't work or have class tomorrow so maybe I will sleep in a little bit..
so what is new? I've been in East Lansing for the summer. I have a week and a half left of summer classes. I was considering trying to pick up an extra class for 2nd session but I'll probably pass on that idea now. I just need a break from school for a little bit. speaking of school, right now i have no idea what I want to do with my degree after school which makes life kind of exciting. I mean you can do anything right?! I could go to law school, film school, or just work at an ad agency or try to get an internship somewhere else or do public relations. Next summer is a big summer for me as I want to either study abroad or get a cool internship somewhere...which leads me to my next topic....
the road trip was pretty cool because it went from being an idea to a reality so that's always fun to do something you talk about doing. the problem with having big ideas is you need the money to back it..so it as fun to be able to actually do. the performers at the cma fest were all really awesome...some i really didn't care for either way prior but their performances converted me into fans. a special from it airs in september. I would definitely go back to Nashville again. It kind of made me change my mind about my future plans..I've always wanted to live in L.A. but ya know nothing beats "southern hospitality". people are so much nicer..in kentucky, tennessee, north carolina,... I def. need to visit Los Angeles because i'm sure it's amazing...but for now I guess I don't have a definite plan to move to one specific place after college..we'll just see where things lead i guess....because I would like to be relatively close to some people and I want a great job too.
so yeah, i would love to get an internship next summer..in Nashville, LA or somewhere in North Carolina..shit even Vegas haha. or do study abroad in Rome. it's hard to say what i'd get an internship in. i can see myself loving PR for a record label, or working on film production somewhere in L.A. or being some crazy dork that sits in a room all day thinking of ideas for commercials that rock. we'll see we'll see.
so Melish was my swift companion at the cma fest and we waited in line to meet Taylor. Meeting her for the 2nd time was totally worth it for me. We got to pose with her awesome guitar and CMT award, see her boots up close, and get a flower from her Our Song video. I'm not purposely trying to be lame but I wish everyone could have a chance to meet her because I don't think "celebrities" get any nicer than that. She really just seems like a regular girl who's dreams came true because of hard work and talent....and you can just tell she really does appreciate her fans. She's one of the most positive people I have ever met, and its fun to follow the career of someone that is so extremely nice and down to earth. it's cool to see. can't wait for her new album to come out in the fall and hopefully get to see another swift concert sometime next school year.
Many people seem to be out and about and busy this summer. Two of my main concert peeps- LB and Mike are missing this summer. i consider them both concert peeps bc......haha we like a lot of the same music (#1) and mike and LB are always up to go see someone if they are worth while (#2). but melish is another concert peep that can usually come and I think she is going to see Jon McLaughlin with me in detroit which will be fabulous...
I can't help but wonder, if I was a celebrity and millions of people read my blog, how many would think I sound unintelligent? I bet a ton would. I don't do well with complete sentences. Ellipses are my #1 best friend. I skip around on thoughts. I should work on all of these things and more.
Yesterday I took a bike ride all around town. It was just a great summer night to go everywhere. I rode up to the capitol (capital?) building, went past the lansing lugnut stadium, came back into East Lansing and went all over MSU campus. As much as the school work stresses me out, I enjoy being at MSU for the most part. Going on a ride like that reminds me of how nice it is. The campus is just a great place to be. I think i forget that during the year because it's covered in snow a majority of the time...but when it's nice out, it's really nice.
I am going to be living alone in my studio in 62 days. You know how like little things happen that cause chain reactions? for example...i can list some..if someone didn't break into our house, my dad wouldn't have sent me pepper spray, so i wouldn't have had pepper spray so no one would have thought i was trying to pepper spray their friends a month and a half later. Or....if we never left the football game, we never would have had any confrontations that caused all the problems. so on and so on. there are always the 'what ifs'. 'what if i didn't do that...then everything would be normal.' well what if there is no normal? what if everything that is supposed to happen does. Maybe there is a reason why i'm living alone next year. shoot i'm not going to press my luck but maybe i meet the love of my life that happes to be my studio apartment neighbor next year. or maybe a new friend. or maybe i don't make any friends in the building but learn that i can do a lot of things independently. or maybe the living arrangement is cool and i enjoy it and would have never discovered how awesome it was if i stayed in a hous. or maybe it sucks and it will teach me that nothing is ever going to be perfect so you have to just learn to accept what you get and be thankful for what you have. All I'm saying is i'm sure there is going to be some lesson i learn from all of this, or some reason for why it happened..even if the reason is that 'it's only life' and that is the way it goes sometimes.
alright well it is officially so late that it's early!
but my only real deadline for tomorrow is that im done with my online exam by 3pm. I think I'll be able to handle that. good night/good day.
