Maybe one day we’ll meet again when we’re different people.
Maybe then we’ll be better for each other.absentions (via absentions)

It’s 11:46pm. I’m kind of in a weird trance while trying to fall asleep for the bright and early morning tomorrow. I’m surprised to see that no one has posted much about flight 370, but at the same time kinda not surprised either.
It’s kind of like society has gotten used to death?
I mean many…
Tonight feels like it’s #throwbacksunday, and yes, that is a thing in my world. I’ve been re-watching my favorite episodes of Heart Strings and rummaging through my old “8th grade” music collection. As I scroll through each band on my iTunes, I can perfectly hum every word of my favorite song from each group. ADTR, A7x, From First To Last, Dance Gavin Dance, Silverstein, ETF, Jamie’s, PTV, etc. God I remember always blasting their shit, and my parents would yell and question what kind of music I listen to. “How can you understand what their saying?? How is this even music?? Back in my day (blah blah blah)”. Tbh, this genre gave me such a rush. It kept me excited and on my feet. It felt really cool listening to music that wasn’t overplayed on the radio and was also 10x more exciting than any radio song I’ve heard. I loved playing Downfall Of Us All while getting ready to hang out with friends or boarding to Carl’s with the old homies. I miss hearing the original vocals of ETF. I remember one time I was at six flags these girls from Vegas came up to me and asked me about the ETF shirt I was wearing. For some reason they didn’t think ETF was big in Cali, but they got the message that there are plenty other crazed fans out here than just me. And don’t get me started on the un-healthy crush I had on Vic, my goodness. Especially listening to his vocals in Kissing In Cars and Besitos. One band that particularly stuck to me had to be Jamie’s Elsewhere. Going to my first “underground” concert w/ mosh crowds was insane. The only reason we even went was because we heard Jamie was headlining and we couldn’t believe someone as big as them would be playing at a small secluded venue in Temecula. Let me tell you though, it was worth standing in a crowd that reeked of sweat, hairspray, and plain filth all night. Between sets, we met some of the members of the bands that played and even got some free merch/stickers (that I never used yet haha). Meeting those musicians all led up to the appearance of Jamie’s Elsewhere. They sure as hell didn’t disappoint. I’ve never had such a rush in my life before up to that point until they played Giants Among Common Men. I was singing my lungs out to them, we knew every word and every pause, every riff and every drum break. That song spoke to me on so many levels; it was my teen angst wrapped into one song. The rush of being in the front of the crowd next to stage, right between the main guitar and speakers, hearing that song live and screaming your lungs out to the band, was a moment in my life I will always remember. There was no way that my night could’ve ended any better. But then one of the members decided to give us a sneak peak of a touching song he wrote for his girlfriend, front and center with no band, solely acoustic. I teared the whole time. It’s funny because I don’t remember the message of the song I just remember the emotions I felt from listening to it. I guess I really wrote this post just to say how much I miss the old music. The good ole’ vibes that I’d get from surrounding myself with non-stop alternative/metal. I don’t regret moving on from that stage in my life, I just really miss how energetic and alive I felt listening to a completely different genre that I listen to now. I’ll always have these great memories to keep me pushing through life’s daily grinds though.
