It's Been Awhile

Lots has happened in my life since I last posted. 2016 was an interesting year. Steven and I got engaged last April.  I have been to two new states last year; Minnesota and Michigan. Both of those trips involve Three Days Grace concerts. My buddy Marjeana and I traveled to WI, MN, and MI to see concerts..those were fun trips for sure..lots of memories. On a lot of these trips her and I cried and laughed together..been quite a ride. Also been to Indiana, Kentucky, Missouri and Ohio for shows. I also got to meet some of my online friends who I have known for several years through Facebook through Three Days Grace and My Darkest Days. I attended several concerts last year in several states; Three Days Grace, 3 Years Hollow, ADD, September Mourning, Filter, Stitched Up Heart, Powerman 5000, Sick Puppies, Mindset Evolution, Rob Zombie, Halestorm, Lacey Sturm, 9 Electric, HellYeah, In This Moment.. and many more I can't think of off the top of my head at the moment. Some bands I have seen at least two or three times last year. I think I went to at least 25-30 shows last year.

I worked two jobs for a few months last summer, but the one job slowed down business wise so I decided to just stick with one job and look for another full time job. At the end of September last year I ended up finding a new full time job. I advanced within my first month and at this time, it looks like I will be finding myself making another advancement here soon. I just got some health insurance with this job which I am thankful for. I'm also looking for a second job, something part time to go along with it. Things do fall into place, it just takes time. Hard work pays off. Steven and I are doing good. He's looking for a part time job as well. We are either going to get married later this year or next year. I will be gaining a sister in law, (possibly a brother in law too :P) a mother in law and grandparents and some aunts and uncles. Still deciding on a few things yet for the wedding. It will fall into place of course, :)

This year concert-wise I will be seeing Never Say Die which is Reid and Brendan's band.  If you don't know who Reid and Brendan are, they are in My Darkest Days. They are going to be touring the USA!! It's been a little over 4 years since I've seen Reid and Brendan last and am looking forward to giving them hugs and catching up. Can't wait for them to announce their tour dates. I know Three Days Grace will be doing some dates this year and am looking forward to that and plus showing Steven them live and meeting them. Just have to wait and see who else announces tours and such this spring and summer. If the weather is good on the 17th of this month, I will be heading to Louisville, KY to see Powerman 5000 and Orgy with Marjeana.

I will try and post again soon. Hope everyone is doing well. :)
