Digital Love

Hey bloggers,

So yeah, I am really bored. I've found myself doing this a lot lately. Most of the time, I have homework to occupy my time, but since my English teacher is going on vacation for the next week, and my Psychology teacher doesn't make us do anything, I am without an activity to entertain myself with. That's basically the only basis for this blog. Boredom.

I'm going to see The Dark Knight again today. For those of you who have not seen it, it's a really great movie. The Joker is my favorite part of the whole movie. Heath Ledger did an amazing job, that's for sure. I guess that's all I have to say about that. Is it a little messed up that I related to The Joker a lot?

Don't worry, I'm not gonna blow anything up or anything like that.

I ordered a bunch of new stuff for my drum set on Monday and it should be here on Friday. It's pretty exciting stuff. I'm gonna start practicing a lot more, especially as my set gets better. I'm hoping to be good enough to start doing studio work in the area. That would be the best. Of course, when I'm occupied with Postcards touring, I'll have to put that off to the side (ha).

Speaking of which, we're playing at the battle of the bands on Tuesday, so everyone should come support us! It starts at 7 at the fairgrounds and admission is 2 dollars. I know everyone is super broke, but I'm sure you could find that much money in your couch. It'd be great to see a bunch of you there cheering us on :)

Lately, I've really been into Daft Punk. Which is completely random, right? But I think it's great, haha. Their songs get stuck in my head really easily. Everyone should check them out, when you hear them, I'm sure you'll recognize them. Actually, I'm probably really behind on the Daft Punk bandwagon? I don't know. haha. Blame the Daft Hands video:

This is me blogging instead of doing homework.

So I just avoided a lot of other homework by reading all of my blogs. Haha. It was interesting, to say the least. I do it every once in a while, and each time, it just makes me think. Of course that's gonna happen every time you visit your past.

I've changed a lot.

All in all though, I'm glad I'm moving on with my life, instead of sticking myself to things that aren't good for me. That's one thing I've learned from my experiences. Pretty logical, but apparently, I didn't think like that back then. ha.

And after having gone through high school, it's amazing to see how many things we said we'd do, but never did. I'm making a personal goal to stick to what I say. I get some pretty good ideas sometimes and it would be cool to go through with them. So yeah, when making a goal to be honest, include yourself in it, as well.

That kind of goes along with something that Ms. Brown told me that kind of stuck with me. She wrote the following in my yearbook "...I know you will do amazing things!....Conquer the world Berto!"
It's kind of typical teacher talk, but I really think I can do something amazing with my life. At this point, I really have no idea what I could possibly do to accomplish such a goal, but I'm sure it'll come to me.

Anyway, I think that should clear my head enough to get busy on homework now.

Narrative of Soul Against Soul

So I don't really have much to say, but there is one interesting thing.

Today I was sitting around at home, doing pretty much nothing (I've been doing this a lot lately). I decided to start looking at all my concert ticket stubs and wondered how much money I've spent on concerts....well, I have attended 22 concerts, and I haven't paid for 3. Harry and the Potters, X96 Big Ass show 04 and the Symphony. I have paid for the other 19 concerts. The grand total for these 19 was $570.66.



Right? Haha. Well the thing is that I wouldn't really rather have anything else. I've loved all the concerts I've gone to. It's an amazing thing to say that I've seen as many bands as I have. I don't think anyone else I know could say a thing like that (except maybe Joel). But yeah, just thought I'd share that with you guys...maybe I'll try to remember all the bands I've seen for you guys in a later post. But for now, other thoughts.

So it's known that when everyone graduates and goes to college, everything changes, right? Well I wasn't expecting that much change until the actual school year started, you know? But right now, even though we're all still living in the same place, I feel really really distant from everyone. I feel like everyone might as well be going to college in some far away city. It's really weird, and it's not my favorite feeling. I'll try to do more on my part to try to hang out with people, so yeah, I'll call you kids more often. Although I feel like other people don't try....I mean, one day I called like 15 people (no joke) and a couple of them were busy with stuff, but the rest just plain didn't answer. I didn't receive like any call backs at all, except for two people, or so. But whatever, I'll just stop complaining, I guess :/
