Welcome Back...
11/29/09 at 08:13 PM by SandManTEND13
I almost never write blogs...last time I wrote one was I think it said April, that's a pretty long ass time if I might add. Well usually I pick up with blogs during the holiday season just because I have more time. So here I am. I had a good thanksgiving break, two more weeks of school, week of finals then off for Christmas! I'm excited for this Christmas, its going to be a good one, I asked for reasonable things this year!

Lemme catch you up on things I've done
November- Saw New Found Glory at a small venue here in Indy and it was quiet possibly the funnest show I've ever been too I was front row, sung into the mic about 7 times, got my song requested (3rd and Long), I was sore for the rest of the week! Saw Phish in Cincinnati in the two night stand that was such a fun show also

May-October= Nothing happened
Went to Bonnaroo in June best weekend ever

I'm currently trying to get into college haha, I've been accepted by 5 schools and am waiting for my top 3 to hear back from! Hopefully I get pulled threw! Anyway you shall be hearing more from me.

Take Care AP.net!

P.S. I am going to start putting together my top list of CDs

Spring Time
04/05/09 at 02:46 PM by SandManTEND13
Its been a semi while since I have written a blog...
Its really rainy outside which sucks because I have been in 80 degree weather in Florida for SB!
My spring break kinda sucked but oh well what else can you ask for...I didnt go to any party destination unfortunately

I did however manage to go to a Lil Wayne concert before my birthday. This concert was actually not bad, Lil Wayne is a def performer. The show was spectacular! T-Pain and Lil Wayne were great! I had a great time seeing them. While there I did ask a girl to prom! she said yes so I was really happy about that. But now I am falling for this girl but I dont know how to ask or find out if she likes me or not. See she is kinda one of those girls where its all about her.

Anyway, I have been listening to alot of The Get Up Kids and Jimmy Eat World

and I recommend the show Dexter
I absolutely love this show, its great

Animal Collective
02/17/09 at 08:34 PM by SandManTEND13


My god, I cant stop listening to this album! I absoltuly love it. I mean it so good, I dont know how to describe it. Could it be an AOTY? Maybe, there is a huge possibility. I am surprised that this was such an early release. But I feel the music is beautiful and great. I am so amazed right now, I have been digging them and Phish, man I dont care if people hate them or not but Phish is a great band live. Thats all I have been doing driving and at my house haha.

New phone suggestions?!
02/17/09 at 03:59 PM by SandManTEND13
Okay so my phone recently broke, and I need a new phone. I am on AT&T which sucks but oh well. So I am debating if the iPhone is the phone I want or not. I was also thinking the Propel or something else around those lines. If you have the iPhone let me know how it is and if you like it.

Got the new Thursday and Morrissey albums today! I am very excited to listen to them once I get the chance. School has been a bitch lately! damn it sucks, this whole week has sucked oh well

I wish it was summer so I could go to Bonnaroo!

Why cant it be summer?!
02/10/09 at 08:41 PM by SandManTEND13
It was like 62 degrees out today, It was beautiful! I wish I had classes outside because it felt amazing to be outside. I love the warm weather, I hate it because of lacrosse season but its great to be out in it and just enjoy it.

I wish it was summer though, I am overly extatic for Bonnaroo this year!! I will go crazy by the end of the year haha.

The New Found Glory Mystery Box Solved?!?! and Snow
01/28/09 at 01:39 PM by SandManTEND13




My Mystery Box contained!!!!
1 Tie Guys Shirt
1 NFG Fan Club Poster
1 NFG Tour Poster from the Southhampton Guildhall (UK Tour)
1 NFG Fan Club Keychain
4 NFG Heart Tattoos
2 Horizontal NFG Fan Club Stickers
2 Back to Basics Tour 2005, Sticker Pass (or something)
2 NFG Fan Club Circle Stickers
4 Coming Home Stickers
1 ISHC EP w/Blue Paper Cover (260/1000)

All and all this is well worth 10 bucks! I think it was very cool. Right now its sold out but they will probably have more in the future. They probably wanted to give out some of the Fan Club stuff first before they give out some other stuff. I will be curious to see if people get the same things or not :)

and now how about that snow!!!!

After the people plowed our street, they left this massive pile of snow!




A total of 10 inches for the day!! It doesn't look that bad, but this morning and last night it was really bad. This is after the people shoved their driveways and plowed the streets.
