wow...my friday was awesome!! After a rough morning about not knowing whether or not I'd make it to the Good Charlotte concert, Heather decided she felt fine enough to go (yay!). So yea...we tried to die our hair black and orange..well that didn't exactly go as planned, so we were a little late leaving (mainly because we made an emergency trip to the shower). Ok so after running around like nuts and forgetting just about everything we could forget (such as cds to listen to on the way), we got on the road. And not to mention we got completely lost. Thank goodness the concert was at 9 and not 8 or we would have been super duper late. Anyhoo. Back to the story. So we arrive (finally) after a 3 hour car ride (and yes it's only supposed to take 2). We all get out, go up to the doors and stand in line (mind you it's freezing out...about 30 degrees), we're there for like 5-10 minutes when this woman comes up and tells heather and i that we can't take our purses inside. So we ended up running back to the car, then coming back to stand in line again. Thank goodness it didn't take too long to get inside to the nice cozy warmth. So now onto the excellent concert...
Heather and I met Carl and Monica inside. Carl wasn't feeling all that great, so the two of them didn't want to go into the crowd. Well, Heather and I totally wanted to be in it, so we jumped right in. Of course, since we weren't allowed to mosh or crowd-surf, there were only a few rowdy people actually doing it. I got pretty close. It was great. They were like 5 feet in front of me!! (It was Benji at that!!!!). Plus all the guys kept coming by and leaning into the crowd. I got some great pics. However, some mean girl saw me getting good pics and hit my camera out of my hand (grrrrr to her), so it kinda got lost. I think someone (probably the girl) picked it up cuz it was gone after the concert was over. So yea...I stood in the front for 2 bands (both of whom are awesome btw--The Halo Friendlies (a girl version of Good Charlotte) and Home Grown) and for about 4 songs of GC before I was told that I had "had enough" and was told I needed to get out before I passed out. So yea...I was third freakin row!! But then the security people pulled me out, gave me a bottle of water with ice, and sent me on my way. After like a couple of minutes, I found Heather, Monica, and Carl, so I got to hang with them til the end of the concert. Of course, I was yelling and having a great time and all. The drive home was a lot easier to find out way back.
So yea...we got in at 2:30am (which is pretty good seeing as we left around 12:30), came back to our rooms, peeled off our clothes (which were full of sweat--ick!), then passed out in bed. I didn't wake up til 1pm, but that's ok cuz I think I really needed the sleep.
Saturday was loads of fun cuz Heather, Adrian, and I all went to see Santa Claus 2 (which is a pretty good movie, btw) and Joy went to see The Ring (also a great movie). Afterwards, we all came back and then Heather, Adrian, Jimmy, and I all went to go see Signs at the movies here on campus. Afterwards, we came back and ordered some dinner (mind you it's like 10 at night). So what did we do after that? Watched yet another movie. It's one of my personal faves...Evolution.
*sigh* So since we hadn't done any work the entire weekend, we decided to spend all of Sunday doin a little homework. So now, I'm off to go find some random dude to sign off on my form so I can take a class over intercession (oh boy!--that's sarcasm in case you all missed that). Anyhoo. I'm definately feelin this concert still, but it's totally worth it. Yup and I get to go see New Found Glory, Finch, Something Corporate, and Further Seems Forever on Thursday! Yea buddy!! Toodles for now :)
