Just riding the metro to Maryland to John so we can head to Baltimore to see Jim Gaffigan. So excited. Sixth row!!!!
I love everyone too! (altho I don’t think anyone that was there reads my new blog)
2 years ago today I was sitting outside of the Mohawk Place in the freezing cold, with piles of blankets, food, and other overly dedicated people, waiting for 7 o’clock PM to roll around. We looked like homeless bums, but we didn’t care. We were hoping to experience a day that was going to go down in history, which is what only the most devoted fans in the world would get to be a part of… a Fall Out Boy secret show. All die-hard fans would kill to witness one in their lifetime.
Ordering pizzas, making a celebrity Guess Who game, taking silly pictures, making bathroom runs and cuddling together were only few of the things that happened while we were waiting. It was beyond cold outside, and I can still remember what it felt like, but we really didn’t care because we were all together, as one. We never thought the day would come so we embraced it more than complained. By the time we got in, it wasn’t so squished, but once Four Year Strong came on, it got a little more intense. But man, when Fall Out Boy came on… it was insane. I’m pretty sure I almost died. Even saying that, it was still an amazing show. Being able to hear all of these Take This To Your Grave songs that they wouldn’t normally play, and the intensity and closeness of the crowd… it’s indescribable. Got P.Stumps water bottle, too, just sayin’. :) Hahaha. I’m pretty sure I started crying when they said it was their first and last time playing Pros and Cons live. It was truely unbelievable. Afterwards, seeing everyone walk out was so funny. Everyone’s eyeliner was all the way down their face, cake in people’s hair and on their clothes (you wouldn’t understand, hahahaha), sex hair, red faces, and sweatiness. I’ll try to put up some pictures later if I can get to it.
Let me just say that I met so many amazing people that day, and through OCK all together. I really genuinely miss the closeness of everyone, but it seems like people are moving on from the whole fan club thing. Even though we may not be a part of the fan club, we’re still all friends. We keep in touch via Twitter, texting, Facebook, etc. and I’m so thankful for everyone. I know a lot of the Chicago kids all hang out and some live together which is so awesome. It’s amazing how one band can bring together so many people to the point where the friendship is what makes the band so special, sometimes the friendship even moreso. We’re there for each other no matter what. I know this meant a lot more 2 years ago than what it does now, but it’s still amazing to think about. And if you’re reading this and have no idea what I’m talking about, then don’t worry about it. If you are reading this and do know what I’m talking about… then I love you.
One of the best days of my life.
So a little over a year ago I woke up and couldn’t turn my neck. The pain was so bad that I was sobbing. One of my coworkers at the time took me the ER and they gave me pain meds and a muscle relaxant. All they did was make me sleepy.
I am unsure as to what was really wrong. They say pinched nerve maybe? It happened again over the summer and I took the meds again and the pain just lessened over days and went away.
This morning I stretched before getting dressed for work and it happened again. I probably shouldn’t of drove but I don’t live that far from work and the bosses are in Vegas so I kind of had to. I can’t turn my head to the right. I keep stretching it and doing what I can until I can’t handle the pain anymore but I’m getting sick of this happening (as it’s always in the same spot) I took a percocet once I got to work… so far… nothing. Still in as much pain as I was before.
I don’t know what to do, I have just recently been to the dr for other problems and can’t really afford ANOTHER copay. Not with the holidays coming. I need to see how much checks are now with my raise so I can figure out what to do for my 401k and Flexible Spending Account. haha.
OMG It really kinda sucks being an adult!
I am usually not so excited to go home but I’ll have almost a whole week off of work and at the end of our trip… I get to bring my cat Cobra back home with me! I am so happy!!
I will also be meeting the rest of John’s family and seeing a lot of people that I miss very very much!
