Live for the Sounds

It's been a while.

The funny thing is I've been working on this same blog post since the day after the Copeland concert. I just couldn't get myself to finish it, I guess. Hah.

Anyway, the concert was pleasing. :-)

The opening bands were awesome! My favorite was Brooke Waggoner. She's incredible. Her lyrics and piano skills are so fresh and unique. She is accompanied by a violinist, cellist, keyboardist, and guitarist. The combination of it all gave such an appealing sound. I loved every moment she was on stage. Definitely my kind of music. I met her after the show and she was so genuine. Love it.

And of course Copeland was wonderful. Everyone who ever told me they weren't good live are liars. AMAZING LIVE. Aaron Marsh is awesome. I was in the very front center. Not one person was in front of me! It was great. He sang a lot from You Are My Sunshine, obviously, but they played some oldies too, which was nice. After the show I met Marsh, and he was a pretty cool guy. :-)

But my birthday didn't end there. The next day my friends threw me a surprise birthday party at the roller rink. It was really fun! I have the best friends.

I am going to miss everyone so much over the summer. I can't believe it's the last week of school. This year went by so fast. Faster than freshman year. It's crazy. I am half way done with college. I'm sure the next two years are going to go by just as fast. I don't really like thinking about it. It scares me, yet it excites me all at the same time. These days, God has really been teaching me to take everything one day at a time.

On The Safest Ledge

I am in extreme pain for reasons only females understand. Ugh.

I am also kicking myself for the stupid mistakes I made on my Spanish test. I am convinced I am a bad test taker because I know the information before going into the test, and then I take the test and second guess EVERYTHING.

But I am trying not to let all of this ruin my day.

Because today is a special day.

I have tickets to see one of my favorite bands, Copeland. I have been listening to Copeland since I was 16, so I am more than excited to finally see them live. I've heard different stuff about their live performances, and tonight I will get to see for myself. I am betting on an amazing show!

"Don't look ahead, just run to me.
Each step will find the next one recklessly.
We'll find ourselves on the safest ledge.
Well pardon me, I couldn't help myself."
