To everyone in the TBS family, it is with great sadness I am announcing today that I am no longer a part of Taking Back Sunday. The last 2 years with Taking Back Sunday have been beyond a dream come true, from touring and playing with bands that I really admire, to playing new places all around…
usually, I dont let politics get the best of me. But I need to vent a bit. Basically, people are idiots. Not everyone by any means, but just some people I hear talking or read their little comments just piss me off. I wish people would do their homework, and read about the HCR, or any of the politics. Don’t just go off of what you’ve heard, you look ignorant as hell because your usually wrong. Just because someone said something or you heard it on the news DOES NOT in anyway make it the truth. If your smart, you’ll do your homework and then use your arguing skills. I am truly embarrassed for you. I keep my political views to myself, I have no reason to start an argument. But jeez some people just want to go on and on and just argue for no reason. Ugh, it really does piss me off. This may not make much sense. </rant>
I've been putting this off so I am now starting it
I’m willingly hopping on the bandwagon for this, I think its kind of cool. Starting on March 21st!

through out time, I’ve always been told by my parents to treat everyone equal, or how you would want to be treated. No one is perfect, but I’ve always tried my best to treat everyone equal and treat them the way I would want to be treated. Doing so, I have always been very caring, sometimes forgetting about myself. My parents were/are the same way. My mom was the same way, she was so giving and never took. She just wanted to always help everyone in any way possible, even if it was impossible, she’d do something. Sadly enough, that was the death of her. She forgot to take care of herself, and ultimately that lead to her death. When she passed, I talked to a christian man who told me that in the bible it says to put ourselves before others. I was very confused and surprised when he told me this. He then explained that God knew that we must take care of ourselves in order to help others. Because how can we help others if we have nothing to give. Ever since then, I’ve tried my best to help myself to help others. Its actually a harder task than you’d think.
I was talking to my Dad today, we usually have deep conversations about my mom and other things. He is such a smart man, he knows so much about life, I could talk to him for days on end if he didn’t get tired so easy. But today we talked about putting ourselves before others, so that in the end we can really help others. He has a habit of putting everyone before himself like my mother. Sometimes I have to make him help himself, its a hard task to get an 82 year old man to go to the doctor or to just go out and get some wine for himself. The best thing he loves is sitting in our backyard with his dog, me, his newspaper, a glass of wine, a small fire, a golf club and some golf balls. We talk, we read, we drink, we play with the dog, we hit some golf balls (sorry to the neighbor across the acres). Sometimes, I feel like we both put ourselves first in that time we spend together.
This may have been all over the place, and not made much sense. But if anyone does read this, don’t forget to put yourself first, and take care of yourself. Then you can help out the world :)
Its always great to be your own person, to be different, or weird. Hell, I live to be weird and different, I think its awesome. But I also don’t mind going with what other people like. So what if I like lady gaga or the twilight saga. I don’t live for those things, but I do enjoy a little “poker face” sometimes :) I hate when people just try to call out others and talk about how much everyone like this or that and they can’t stand it. Who cares, people do jump on bandwagons, and I’ve been known to call out someone. But I’m done. People like what they like, who cares, as long as their happy and they are living life for themselves or for a good reason. This is kind of a rant, but it feels like it needed to be said.
just realized that i have so much stuff, that I either have no use for or just have for looks. I also have so many things saved, things in my apt, things on my computer, lists, pictures, websites, things I’ve written. I also carry around a backpack full of stuff I barely use. I think this is more of a 1:25am rant, but I feel like deleting everything from my computer. I won’t because then my head would fall off. haha wow. now this is irrelevant!

I’ve come to realize I think a lot when I drive. Its awesome and horrible at the same time. It’s awesome, because I come up with great things for this list, and bad because its really hard to type and drive. ( I don’t wanna die typing about my “life list” it would be very ironic)
