I had such a fuckin awesome vacation. Four shows, two being trio, finally seeing finch after all these years and them being broken up and tower of power with my God father.

I got to take a train I never took before to the suburbs to my God parents, and I went home Saturday night instead of spending two hours in the city alone Sunday morning thanks for izzy coming out and having dinner. Spontaneously and last minute went to a Halloween party. It was real fun.

Ending my vacation with night 4, my night 2, of trio. It was amazing. I’ve got to hear My shame is true, Goddammit, Crimson and Good mourning all in full. Goddammit is my favorite trio album and hearing it in full AGAIN was gnarly as fuck. Nose over tail is my favorite trio song, my body just let loose all in my pit area.

I had such an awesome vacation. I can’t remember when I felt this happy about a vacation. Yah my birthday vacation is always wonderful but ohhh man, this one made me stoked. Imagine if I had went to trio four nights instead of two?

Oh, I met Nate from finch on Tuesday at their show and when I got home I compared it to our photo from 03-05 whenever it was taken and its funny to see how we’ve grown. I love him, he’s one attractive dude.

I also got to meet Mike Park on Thursday. He sold me my trio hoodie. He was so nice, I loved it.

I met a dude at the finch show who I thought was a real cool dude. He asked for my number and being me, I don’t act well to being hit on or flirted with because that doesn’t happen to me, but I told him we could be texting buddies.

I gave it to him but he didn’t give me his. I wrote it ona piece of paper, because I’m old school. I think he lost it and I sort of feel stood up and I kind of hate that I feel like this because it’s ridiculous. I’m an idiot.

BUT……this fucking vacation though!

I just brought up my comforter from my basement because Chicago is bipolar and can’t make up its mind on how it wants Fall to feel like.

My room is the coldest in the entire house. The heat doesn’t filter all the way through and I freeze every year. I.always tell myself I don’t know how I did it the year before or the year before that. Its really intense in here around the winter.

Any way, since I brought it up because of how cold I’ve been lately, it makes me really not fucking ready for winter. I’m not ready for those brutal nights and harsh mornings.

I wish my room wasn’t like this. I can deal and fight with the outdoors but my room is my home. I shouldn’t feel the way I do outside, in here.

Well, if it’s any consolation, I’m quite warm right now. I’ll actually sleep comfortably.

Dan Andriano - It’s gonna rain all day.

Thank you, Chicago weather. Thank you, Dan.

I pick up my brother every now and then and this is what I get to stare at. I fucking love my city and being able to live in it.

I may not live directly inside of this awesomeness, but I do live in Chicago. Suck it.

It’s 1:08am and I just walked in a bit ago. I had to borrow the bf’s car to take our friend home and I took myself home.

While I decided to put music on through a cassette through my phones Pandora, I put the weezer station on and its just pure awesomeness. It was so good to drive in the dark with lightening in the distance peeking through the dark clouds, with a real chill breeze, windows down and being alone.

Jimmy Eat World came on and it had me feeling emotional. Like I wanted to cry. Not from sadness or anger, just felt like crying. I’m getting older and the band’s I grew up with are also getting older and nostalgia will forever be something I hold so dear. No matter how fucking stupid you think that is.

Its now storming here in Chicago. I.hope I can sleep. Even though it was chill outside, it doesn’t work the same for inside.

Good night.

My favorite pit at Riot Fest. The Souls were amazing, CM Punk was gnarly, I was on the wrong side of the stage.

The people were hyped but not as hyped as the other. I miss Riot Fest already. Fighting the urge to go to Denver this weekend. As if it were possible.

Next year should be quite rad.

Guys, Riot Fest is tomorrow. Here’s my last post.

If you’re heading there, my Tumblr buds, and we haven’t met yet, here’s what I look like. I’ll be there all weekend.

Look for the chubby gal wearing all black.

Last night I got off work at ten and found out I had to borrow my mom’s car to pick up my brother at work.

He’s got a good view. Then again, he does work in the city. Beggars pizza to be exact. Do you realize how hard it was to say no to a pizza slice? Fuck.

Today just rules.

-Two of my favorite dudes.
-Three hour ride, there and back.
-D’Arcy’s Pint.
-Finally getting my hands on a Horseshoe.
-Getting out of the city.
