A Sailor's Journal

It's been a while since I've written a new blog. I mean I have I guess, but an actual one. Lot's been going on lately which is good.

Killed all my finals so I'm on track to graduate next year. Pretty sure I got straight A's which is awesome. Just waiting on one last grade.

Other than that I just bought Rob's and my tickets to Washington D.C. to go see the last third of our trifecta haha. Our best buddy Devan. Haven't seen him since after my first year of college, well actually he came into town one other time, but it was very brief. He now is married and has a two year old at the ripe old age of 22. He always loved to jump the gun on life, but I love him like a brother. So we are going out there for a week. Should be another awesome adventure just like going to Montana was. Perfect way to start the summer. Really stoked to see my best bud. To get away for a bit. Especially somewhere brand new.

Saw The Avengers at midnight the other night with a bunch of people. Awesome as expected.

Super stoked for all the new music coming out in the near future. Especially the new Spill Canvas album. The two new songs they've released have already topped my expectations and made up for their last few releases.

I've been having the best week and month and then I am cleaning my room.. and what do I find.. her 7 page letter.. Talking about soul mates and about what we had gone through last year.. Not even a year has passed and look at the situation she's in. Ridiculous. Especially after what was written in that letter and many others. Oh well I just put it in a safe place..

Oh YEAH! Super fucking ecstatic for Warped Tour this year. The lineup is outrageous. Gonna probably be the best one I've ever been too.

I have a lot more to say, but I guess I'll just save it for another blog!

The only thing that I could form into words was that you have the most beautiful eyes. They don't need to be green or blue they just made you, you. Then we kissed and I knew this was what flying felt like. I've always been a catious boy but I found my self in your eyes, and I lost myself in that kiss. I never expected this or you to come along and flip my whole world. I haven't touched the ground yet. I don't think I can. I'd rather be blinded by the clouds than realize I'm crashing down. So I'll keep those happy thoughts close enough so I don't drown.

Those eyes

Seeing them today just reaffirmed why I love this girl so much and am fighting so hard. Man I was so nervous. But that laugh and that smile. My girl.

Jesus, went to my buddies tonight. Had a very long talk about life and what have you. Got a little too high. Thinking a little to much..

I just want to be held. haha wow.

I hope I never have a panic attack again.

Every thirty seconds.. Man i'm ridiculous.

I need to stop.


: I think the hardest part is literally sitting here hearing nothing.. Not talking.. The absolute worst. I loved talking. So all I do is think, stare at my ceiling in the dark and think. fuck. I've never been like this. Fall asleep at 3 wake up at 6. I literally can't help it. All my mind thinks about. Her. Every thought.

Absolutely and totally blew my expectations away. I don't understand how some of the staff isn't liking this. Such an evolution and maturity in their sound. Especially Maika's vocals. Oh man he can wail. I could totally see these guys getting huge.

I literally was loving every song on the album first listen. That's pretty rare. So stoked I get to see them at Warped this year.

Can't wait to pick this up tomorrow.

In other news. I'm loving my girlie too much haha. Happy days.

Night Life
04/05/11 at 08:43 PM by billyboatkid
Ahhh. Some times it's just nice to sit back and relax. Especially on beautiful Spring nights as such. Loving the breeze blowing in through my window. Just perfect.

Getting back into that work out mode for Spring and the Summer haha. Sounds girlish, but it's true. Gotta loose some of that Winter weight we all seem to accrue. I hate it, but what can you do.'

What else. So much crazy going on in my life at the moment I don't even wanna write it all down. Would take way too long. At times I don't even know what to do with myself. haha

Stoked for all the music that's coming out and albums. Please, please, please ATL don't let me down. This is seriously the last chance. NP had it's moments, but it still was shit compared to the EP and SWIR

I can't even believe you'd shit all over your artistic integrity and release that single. You may think all this hate is unneeded from everyone, but it's just your fans telling you you're fucking up. We loved you for a reason and it's like a slap to the face when we know you're so much better than this.. Oh well that's my rant.

My hair is ridiculously long. It get's curly and wavy which is weird, but I'm too lazy to get haircut haha.

I love writing these blogs. Especially in my undergarments. ;)

You Ruined This
03/10/11 at 10:44 AM by billyboatkid
Oh man I love The Audition. Threw on Great Danger and it's the perfect cd for this Spring type weather. Puts me in a great mood, loving life. Especially since it's Spring Break now. Super stoked.

Not gonna lie. They remind me of her. One of her favorites that I showed her, but I won't let her ruin them for me. The Audition are to great to give up. haha.

This Spring Break should be awesome. Have some stuff planned with friends all that good shit.

Man I really wish she even gave to cares about me. That's always been my worst thing. I never could understand how people can let go and give up on someone they "love" so easily. It's baffled me for all of my relationships haha.

Oh well. Here's to Spring Break and making bad decisions haha. The title of their album is exactly what I'm expecting this Spring Break haha. Great Danger!!!!!

You try so hard to be tough and not let it phase you. But you know at anytime it can creep up on you.

And it always does when you're least expecting it.

It hits you like a ton of bricks. All the things you realize you'll never get to do with them again.

Trying to be so tough, and this one hurts the most.

Edit: can't even keep my shit together. Absolutely everything reminds me of her. She had become such a big part of me. I hate my music. My guitar. Everything.

Go Radio - Any Other Heart
02/01/11 at 10:20 PM by billyboatkid
I've loved this band forever and a day. Have both of their previous EP's and all the other tracks demo or not released.

I use to and still do love/enjoy Mayday, but I remember about hearing when Jason left. I didn't know the members or who/what roles they played in the band. But immediately after hearing Go Radio I knew Jason was the biggest part of Mayday.

I love his lyrics, voice. The man knows how to write a fucking song. Always have an awesome chorus and catchy as hell.

Love how his lyrics are deep and open for interpretation. Not all but a lot of them can be.

Hearing Lucky Street and then this song, especially in the current state I'm in was just perfect. So thank you for singing my heart in so many ways Jason Lancaster.

Everyone should download this from iTunes. It's worth the 99 cents I paid and that you'll pay.

In other news, It's been snowing like crazy here. Which is nuts cause it never really does. 7 degrees and school closed for two days. Awesome.

So much emotion building up. I'm handling this so much different than usual. I wish I could tell her all the things I want. Oh well.


"if i had any other heart if any other piece were louder
if i had any other hands i wouldn't need the voice to tell the world about the coward
that refuses this end and claim no blood on your hands
if i had any other heart, if i had any other heart besides my own"

Manchester Orchestra
03/27/09 at 10:20 PM by billyboatkid
Okay SUPER fucking late pass for me...

I remember back in 10th grade my friend Caleb (super christian, Indie kid) had burned me a copy of I'm Like a Virgin Loosing a Child.
Of course I didn't give it the time of day, cause you know sometimes Christians just listen to some weird shit...

So I decided to give it another spin because of Jason's review of the new cd, and seeing the comment that ILAVLAC is their Deja. Knowing that Brand New is my favorite band of all time.

I have to say boy did I make a mistake of dismissing this band... maybe I just needed to grow a little. One fucking listen to Sleeper 1972 and Don't Let Them See You Cry and Holy Shit. Fucking awesome.

Powerful stuff. I think I see myself getting way to into this band... I should have listened to Caleb back in the day. I think I still have that burned copy somewhere in my room. hahaha

Can't wait to hear the new stuff. I'm also loving the two new songs of that EP.

Glad to have found a new band.

Maroon 5 and Augustana
09/09/08 at 04:40 PM by billyboatkid
Well me and my great buddy Yakob are off to see Maroon 5 and Augustana for a whopping total dollar amount of 0!

Getting in free, hey why not go. It should be fun and it's raining.

Updates later.

Well tonight was pretty awesome. Got 70 dollar seats for free. Counting Crows where blah.. Sorry just don't care for them much.

Maroon 5 was fucking awesome. The funny thing is I was never a really big fan. But, after tonight I've grown to like them a lot. I never knew Adam Levine could rip on the guitar so well. They have a lot of slow jazzy songs that I like a lot. So I decided to pick up their albums.

New fan. lol
Next is Journey

The Party Brigade
07/26/08 at 11:34 PM by billyboatkid
So I love partying, you love partying, everyone loves partying.

Know what I love even more than partying!? Cool cops! (I was in the middle of a game of beer pong too) After I left I found the ball in my back right pocket haha

The kind that show up and say if you're alright to drive leave and those who aren't find a ride..

Man it's a rare occasion, but fuck when it happens. It makes me respect cops just that much more.

Also, just saw a set list for Finch.. and may I say I'm fucking stoked as shit!!! I can't wait for August the 4th to roll around. I'll be in heaven.

I hate liking someone who is unattainable... well at the moment anyways, but still it sucks. It's a great sucky feeling.

Oh and everyone should go see Step Brothers. That movie is fucking hilarious. No joke. I pretty much laughed my ass off through out the whole thing.

Sorry just wanted to give a little update. Peace easy bitches.
