I was so excited about documenting the fact that I met Daughtry that I forgot to talk about the music! They didn’t perform Gone Too Soon. I was relieved. However, all the time I spent listening to it over the past 6 weeks helped me heal one of my “broken pieces”. I seriously did a happy clap when they did Start of Something Good the 2nd night. Of course, I had to tell Kim all about the car during the concert. Oopsie.
I almost forgot to post here because I’ve talked about it everywhere else. Pretty much beat it dead, really. Soooo… the Daughtry concert was pretty awesome. I ended up going both Friday and Saturday nights since my niece, Rachel, wasn’t able to go on Saturday. I was front and center both nights so I took an insane number of pictures, like 250. Seriously.
One of my favorite pics I took of Chris Daughtry
And this happened before the concert on Friday… * screams like a teen girl *
October feels like a bit of a new beginning for me. Birthday thing aside, the end of September felt like I was closing one door and opening another. Why? Well, in bullet points so I don’t go into too much detail for the gossip hounds…
This is the first time
living alone this long, ever. No humans. No pets. Just me. I don’t hate it but I don’t love it yet. I’m told I will.
I have a good playlist building that reminds me of absolutely no one.
all of my belongings have been in one place since I moved out of my house in 2001. And they’re all “mine”.
my “broken pieces” are finally starting to heal. (Being forced to deal with those pieces the past couple months was unnerving but worth it in the end.)
I don’t feel the urge to “flee” from my life or family.
in as long as I can remember, I truly feel at peace.
Last night I was watching old episodes of a TV show. During one of the episodes I heard a small clip of a song, maybe 30 seconds. I knew I needed it as soon as it started playing so I quickly grabbed my phone and ran toward the TV to Shazam it. I needed to find out the name of the song. It was Wildest Moments by Jessie Ware. (Having a phone by me at all times comes in super handy in moments like this.)
I never heard of Jessie Ware before that but she’s all I’ve listened to all day. This is her latest release.
I can see many quiet nights chilling at the apartment listening to her while drinking a glass of wine.
PS – The show was Being Mary Jane. Whoooooa. I’m addicted. I can’t wait until the new season starts. I love Gabrielle Union.
