Friday night Bri and I went to Downtown Dallas — the American Airlines Center, to be exact. The American Airlines Center hosts a lot of things, from games to concerts. We were about an hour late, and I’m a bit upset1 that we missed Family Force 5, one of my favorite bands EVER. LIKE AH. I WAS SO LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING FAMILY FORCE 5 AND JUST. UGHHHHHHHHHH. But it’s okay; next year, we’ll go again, and hopefully we won’t be late or anything. I mean, perhaps things will actually go according to the plan. I mean, hopefully. I’ve only ever seen FF5 once, and that was at the House of Blues. I think FF5 is the band Bri’s never gotten to see. Or perhaps it’s The Afters. I’ve seen The Afters at church before.2
Anyway, you’re probably wanting to know where we went. Well, on the way there we got lost. 😡 Finding a parking spot was rather difficult, and we ended up paying $20 for parking because 1) we didn’t want to walk forever just to get there and 2) all of the others were closed. I’m assuming it was more expensive because we purchased parking in the garage. AND it required cash. It was a good thing I had cash on me (the exact amount needed), because on the way to drop me off, we stopped and ordered at McDonald’s only to learn that Bri didn’t have her credit card with her.
The Rock and Worship Road Show concert lasted much longer than we thought. We only got to see Kutless, Adam Cappa, Jeremy Camp, Tedashi and MercyMe.
Again, I’m really looking forward to next year, and I really hope FF5 plays again next year… -.-
I’ve been to a few concerts in my lifetime, and I’m a bit disappointed that I only recently came into the “official” blogging world where I actually blog and connect with other bloggers and actually talk about my life! There are so many sixteen year old bloggers, and a part of me is jealous of them because they’ll get to (if they keep up with it) look back at their blogs and be able to refer people to said blog posts when they bring up a past experience or something similar. Another part of me doesn’t care, as I’m quite sure I would probably be too embarrassed to keep my old blog posts if I had actually blogged and kept up with it rather than blogging every other month or so about some boring shit.
…Now that I am trying to get back on topic… I’m only a bit disappointed because maybe I could have blogged about said concerts years ago when I went to them.
Concerts I have attended in the past:
- 26 March 2008 — The Afters @ The Mix at Fellowship Church Grapevine
- 3 April 2008 — Family Force 5 @ House of Blues in Dallas (Skeletour)
- Can’t find the date – Washington Projects @ The Mix at Fellowship Church Grapevine3
- 2008 date unknown 🙁 — FC Grapevine concert for Closer to the Start CD/DVD; I have the DVD somewhere, and I’m in it… barely visible, in a green top… heh. 😡
- 26 January 2013 — Josh Nelson Project @ Temple Shalom in Dallas
I really want to keep blogging for as long as I can, and I hope that I blog about the things I do. My memory worsens each day and every time that time passes. And maybe one day my blog posts will be all that I have left for my memory.
I’m glad I went with Bri Friday night. When she asked me Wednesday if I was doing anything on Saturday4, I said no. “Good.” And I almost said no to going to a concert, but I didn’t. It was nice to hang out with her again, as it was the first time this year that we went out together. Plus, I needed a night out/night away/etc.
Sunday, we went shopping, to Cinemark to see Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters and to bowling. Today, we hurt altogether. ALL over. After my allergy shot, we went to IHOP to eat (won’t be going to that one again), and then to Cinemark to watch Identity Theif.
As Bri said, “Back to reality. Ughhh.” I mean, I just wish that I didn’t get knocked down so much. People say that by getting up and going out you’ll become happier, but what about after that high? Then you’re back to the same scenery, the same low.
Have you done anything exciting this year thus far?
