So I meet up with Jimlyn and Eden at school after I take my brother to the babysitter. We got there around 11 and probably got in 20 minutes or so after. As soon as we got in, we got our picture taken by those photo people. Lame, I don't like those.
I saw some of Saosin
performing, but I stayed with Jims and Eden and we went to go see The Academy Is...
So the music started and I got separated from them. I don't know, but I really do like being where everything happens. It's fun that way. Although it didn't get crazy during their set. Why would it? Ha.
After that I saw some of Rise Against
and we walked around and saw The Casualties
playing a little after and saw how hectic it was. So there I go again trying to get in the craziness. Then I am separated once more from Jims and Eden.
I came in the middle of Aiden and you know why?! Because it looked exciting. I somehow made my way through a crowd and ended up in the middle. I was AGAIN separated from Jims and Eden. Then Wil Francis, the lead singer made everyone make 20 ft. more like 10 ft gap in the middle. So there I was in the very front on the left side and as soon as the music starts up everyone starts running into eachother. Ha, I love rushes like these. Then some girl fell on the floor and she was on the floor for a while being trampled by all the other people pushing while these guys were trying to help her up. That sucks! /= I saw her finally get up and I think she was okay? I started sweating A LITTLE, but it was all good. When it was all over I found Jims and Eden off to the side and we stayed to wait for Senses Fail
We waited for a while and Jims picked up sunglasses on the floor and she broke it and gave me the other half. When the show started everyone got all crazy and I was getting squished like no other. But there I go making my way the front trying to push everyone.. or more like just being pushed towards the front. I swear, you get tired from that shit! There was a moment where I wanted to just get out for some air, but I wanted to stick it through. I'm a trooper ya know? But yeah, there I was with no friends in sight for like the 3978238th time. So I just stayed for the whole set, enjoying the music and being pushed around. I fell on some dude and some other guy helped me up and I totally got stuck IN a mosh pit. Hmm, what else..?! Oh and people kept crowd surfing behind me so I'd get trampled on and be too tired to push them up and people stepping on my toes constantly, yet I know I probably did the same. I don't know, it was insane. I had fun. HIGHLIGHT!
Did I mention I came out of that almost drenched in sweat?!.. and other peoples sweat? Ha, ew gross. Some people need stronger deodorant. Foreals! So I needed to chill after that. I was waaay tired. Jims and Eden ended up at the Myspace tent, so they totally LEFT ME during the set. Lames! So we walked around again and we watched The Kennedy's
. Ha, they're awesome. After their set I saw some of We Are The Fury
, but then they wanted to go see Motion City Soundtrack
so I just went with them. /= I really wanted to stay for We are the Fury though. Gah. Then that's when I saw Matt Kennedy and then when Motion City Soundtrack started, I totally made Jims and Eden go into the crowd because we were standing in the back and I left them and went to go see Cartel
After Cartel I met up with Jims and Eden and we just chilled. Jims and I walked around and we watched Chiodos
with Byron. Then we went to go sit somewhere and listened to Paramore
play. I wanted to see Thursday so we went to go, but while we were waiting I wasn't in the mood anymore because I lost all my energy and I just wanted to go home. So we walked around to get merch before we left. We watched Punk Bunny and oh man, are they hilarious. No really, they are. Although the guy in speedo and super tiny sports bra wasn't very appealing. All he did was dance and rub himself on the stage and had this open mouth, tongue hanging out, and eyes squinting expression the WHOLE TIME. They were entertaining though.
Last but not least we stopped at a bunch of tents. We ended up stopping at The Militia Group
tent because they made Eden and Jims listen to music. What's funny is that I'm part of that street team thing and Jimlyn wanted me to go tell them the whole time we were there. So I was standing off to the side, probably like 10 ft away from them, while they were just listening to music. Then I just see Jimlyn point at me, and I guess she told them I was in their street team and the guy was like, "Why didn't you tell us? Don't be shy.. you should be giving us a hug" or something. Then the girl came up to me and started talking to me. Her name was Molly and she asked if I wanted any merch or CD's for free, but I said it was okay, but she ended up giving me a free Brandston CD and we were off!
On the way out, we bought our warped tour picture. Hahaha and we went to In-N-Out and Jims took us back to our cars at school. From there I went home, ate my food, laid in bed while I watched Law & Order because I love that show and I was super tired. After a while I washed my sheets and comforter and pillow cases because I was laying in my bed while I was still all yucky and took a shower. I'm still freaking tired. I don't know why I'm not sleeping yet though, but I got a whole lot of studying and shit to do.
So in all, I had a good time. I didn't get to see some of the bands that I wanted to see. Like Every Time I Die, Scary Kids Scaring Kids, From Autumn to Ashes, The Bled, Thursday, and Underoath. )= Oh well.. night!

So I have really bad tan lines. Ugh.. maybe I mentioned that in my previous entry.
So I bought my ticket for Warped Tour. Still, I don't feel excited. I hope the weather is as good as it was last year. Speaking of warped tour last year, I went with my friends Matthew and Daniel. They weren't much fun. They liked to be in the back of the crowd, while I liked being where all the action happened. But hopefully this year will be fun because I'm going with Jims and we had fun the year before last year. Blah blah..
FLASHBACK! I remember I was walking back to my friend Daniel in the grass because I left Matt while he was watching Atreyu and while I was walking by myself some guy with a rolled up poster who was walking in the opposite direction with his friend hit my ass with it really hard and I totally just looked at him while I was walking away. I don't know why I didn't react. I guess I would've never saw that coming. But fuck, if someone does that to me again this year, I'm totally gonna punch him.
So yeah, I have a quiz tomorrow that I'm going to miss. Ah. Did I mention, I got into a really bad argument with my mom again? I swear, we NEVER get along anymore. I can't be around her for more than an hour without getting into some kind of argument. If only I had money to leave and pay for all my shit, then I'd do it. I'm tired of having to rely on them and having them rub it in my face after every dispute. /= I really have no patience in this house, but there's nothing I can do. shit.
