I keep dreaming...

on October 10, 2007 - 5:39pm

Well ok wow! It's been a long time since I've been on here let alone updated!!

I hope this entry finds everyone well and happy out there in FOJG land. And if you live in the Michigan area...dry...it's been raining here ALL day. Fall has finally reared it's head and it's cold, rainy, and I'm pretty sure I'm not going to see the sun again until April. But somehow I'm glad that the weather has finally changed, this 85 degree weather in October was making me miss summer!!

Oh the things we do for Josh!! So Noel came out on tuesday right? And well my friend Cathy and I decided that it would be a good idea to get to Target at 8am when it opened and get it. Mind you I don't even have an early class, that I need to get up for. It was and is amazing and it makes me want christmas real soon... BUT NO, I must stay focused there is a LOT of stuff that needs to be done before then!!

Well I think that is all right now, I have a midterm tomorrow that kinda snuck up on me so I'm off to work on that for awhile!! Have a good night everybody!! Maybe it won't be so long before I come back again!!

Sometimes it's fun to regress...

on September 8, 2007 - 10:59pm

Hello again everyone!
I hope this update finds everyone safe and happy out there in the world. I just thought that's it been a while and that an update might be necessary!

I just spent the last few hours at one of my friends apartments' watching disney movies! Yep, that's right...Disney movies!! It was great to just sit around and regress to those days of childhood when you would dream of being your favorite princess and having the prince of your choice coming to rescue you in the tower! Ok, so if you were trying to guess we were watching "Sleeping Beauty" one of my favorites!! :)

School is going well, I'm finding it challenging but fun to try and fit in all I'm involved in right now. I have my job 3 nights a week, class 5 days a week, and a volunteer position which I love twice a week on top of that!! It's always chaotic, but that's what makes life more interesting!!

I'm finding myself really content with life tonight, does that sound weird?? Yes, I still have a ton of studying to do tomorrow but I'm ok with that because I'm confident that it will all get done! I was inspired today by some of my friends and when I'm done with this I think I am going to go work on a little of my own creative writing before I go to bed!!

Thanks so much to all of you who take time out of your busy days to read and comment on my journals, I really am going to try and repay the favor, I really do appreciate all of the messages!!

Ok, I think that's it for the evening!! Have a wonderful week !!

Back up at School and ready for classes....

on August 25, 2007 - 3:55pm

Well here I am!! Back up at school again, finally moved into my apartment, ready and waiting for classes to start, and totally content!! This week has been so long, yet way too short at the same time! I can't believe I've already been in my new apartment a week and that classes start in just 2 short days!! This weekend has been amazing. My roommates and I tried to go out on thursday only to be turned around by a mega thunderstorm and a massive power outage that took out most of the college campus. Not to be deterred by a little light problem we went to the grocery store and got some "supplies" and had our own little party in the apartment!! It was probably more fun than going out would have been!!

Oh, I got a new job!! The interview was crazy and I wasn't really sure how I felt about it, but apparently I impressed someone and they called me yesterday with the happy news!! So yeah, if all goes well that money will be very helpful in my "study abroad" fund!! England here I come.... :)

I finally saw that there was a set list out for Josh's christmas CD today!! That is just so amazing!! It may only be the end of august but I cannot wait for christmas, especially if I can have a Josh CD playing!!

Ok, I'll be back later!! Dinner is calling me and I've got to get some reading in (yes, I said reading I have homework before classes even start, how unfair is that???) I hope everyone is doing well, and staying safe!! Talk to you all later!!

OMG, where has this week gone?

on August 12, 2007 - 11:34am

Wow, I can't believe it's already been a week since Pittsburgh. I really feel like things are just going so fast now as I'm preparing to go back to school again in mere days!! Where did summer go??

Ok, but let's get to the good stuff!! The concert in Pittsburgh was fantastically AMAZING! Josh was AWESOME!! Front row was soooo surreal. My friend actually had to take my camera out of my hands because I couldn't stop staring long enough to remember to take pictures. I did eventually snap out of in and took some FABULOUS pictures!!

To begin with Angelique seemed particularly surprised that the audience was so enthusiastic that night. When she began to dance and asked the audience to join her, of course my friend Cathy and I did. As Angelique scanned the audience she made eye contact with me and began to mimic my own sad dancing skills, it was really funny!! One of Angelique's guitarist, Ruben is pretty much the coolest guy in the world. Being in front row I was trying to take pictures of the whole band while they were playing and apparently Ruben found it funny that I was fighting with my camera. He came out after they played and introduced himself to my friend and I, he was very sweet and very nice!!

But Josh...oh Josh, he was wonderful. He was very entertaining, and so.....*enter your own word for awesome here, I think i've run out of different words to describe him!!* There was a moment in "Not While I'm Around" that his mic gave out and my friend and I being so close to stage could only hear him, and we were entirely floored by that man's powerful voice!! That was my favorite moment of the concert, oh and when he signed my friends program (pretty much) on my forehead. She flipped her book over head when he started signing things and he was basically on my forehead!!

I know that I have in the past suffered from PCD (post concert depression) but I think I have finally figured out a cure for it...FRONT ROW! We left that night feeling so much like we had accomplished what we had set out to do, we had seen Josh up close and heard him sing without a mic and even *bonus* got his autograph. I dream of mine came true that night and I am now content to set out on a new one!! Don't get me wrong there will still be concerts in the future, and still love for his new albums but for now I'm so happy with what happened I'll be good for a long while.

I told my mom, when I came home from this concert that I was done for a while, and that it was time to take a "grown-up pill" and start working on things that need to get done before I go back to school!! This summer I turned 21, and I guess it's time to start acting like it. No worries though, I'm still going to be living on this site whether or not I'm at school!! I love it here!!

Ok, I guess I better get back to work! I hope everyone out there is having a good day and I wish you and your families well!! Hopefully I'll hear from some of you soon!!
