I'm willing you to
Make mistakes that suit you
Wouldn't have it any other way

Lord, what do you recommend to a real sweet girl who's made some not sweet friends?
Lord, what what would you prescribe to a real soft girl who's having real hard times?

Goodness has nothing to do with it, dearie.
In a certain light, he looks like Elvis
In a certain way, he feels like Jesus
So, how about a brief review of this year in concerts, vacations, and friends, among other things.

March: for spring break and my senior trip my mom decided that we should go to France along with my aunt, my nana, and my nana's sister. I ended up having a better time than I thought I would, saw a lot of beautiful things, and got to explain to a woman in French that my great-aunt had forgotten one of her bags in a room days earlier, and that it would be AWESOME if the hotel could ship the bag back to the United States. I also got accepted to Berklee College of Music and felt like a total badass when I turned them down.

May was an awesome month. I turned 18, saw the Hold Steady for the first time (totally changed my life), and I graduated 7th in my class and gave my graduation speech. Yes, a very good month.

In June I got my job back, got denied a promotion, quit my job, and vegged.

July I went to SC, decided I never wanted to go back, and chilled at my house since I decided against getting a job at all. I also went to SC with Michelle despite the fact that I'd never really spent more than a few hours with her at a time on only a couple of occassions. It went very well and was the most fun I'd ever had on a family vacation.

In August I saw the Hold Steady for the second time at the SonicMuse Fest with Michelle, got some things taken care of, and left for Belmont.

In September I got adjusted to college, saw (and met) Elvis Costello, met and fell head over heels for a great boy, and made some great friends.

October was another month of great college experiences, a great boyfriend, a great Ryan Adams show and a KILLER Hold Steady show that I went all the way to Knoxville to see, threw up in a trashcan while laughing before the Hold Steady concert, and loved being alive completely.

In November I almost saw Regina Spektor, but she never showed up, Saw Josh Ritter with Stephen and Justin where I got carded at Exit/In (so we had to go back to the dorm to get my ID), saw the very last Nickel Creek show where Gillian Welch and David Rawlings were surprise guests (it was, without a doubt, the best date ever), and started wrapping up my first semester of college.

Now in December I've finished my first semester with straight A's, managed to miss Stephen more than I thought was possible, saw some great hockey, and enjoyed being home as much as it's possible to enjoy being home.

here's to next year!

A haiku

Nashville in a week
Still need to pack up my things
This part is no fun
