December




All I want is to stay inside & cuddle,
hot chocolate, coffee, watching skins over & over,
the Christmas tree lit up, foot rubs, fuzzy blankets,
snow, warm fires, and you. staying here forever.



is that too much to ask for?

“The Safest Wall"



This is “The Safest Wall” in Seoul, South Korea. Young couples show their love for each other by locking a pair of padlocks to this fence, and throwing the keys over the edge. By throwing away the keys, they are showing their undying commitment to each other. I think it may be the sweetest thing ever. <3

Nerds



Sophia and I got pretty nerdy last night and played Dragon Age until 5AM. At one point we talked about staying up and playing until around 9:30 which is around when my parents get up Saturday mornings. We go to a certain point and I looked at her and told her I was getting a headache from look at the screen for so long and then we headed to bed. Sophia also had spent her whole day yesterday at Busch Gardens with her family so she is still sleeping, it's almost 11 and I'm sitting here on my computer with my headphones on, trying to stay silent so she doesn't wake up. The rest of the house is up and moving and busy doing God knows what, and I'm being a lazy ass, watching youtube, writing this blog, and listening to music (Joan Jett, :D)

I'm also still deciding how sincere someone is being. I can never tell if that said person is being "fake nice" just to be a jerk or if that person actually means what they said. I'm hoping they aren't being mean, please God... please...

Last night was perfect.

Last night was the Tegan & Sara concert, I went with Sophia and my sister Brittany.

First (awesome) Thing That Happened:
After parking the car, while we were finding our way to The Norva we decided to stop in a Subway for some drinks. On our way in I had noticed these two guys that were awfully familiar but didn't really pay too much attention to that. They had walked into the Subway ahead of us and then turned around having decided not to go in, We pushed the doors open for them. Once they left Sophia leaned over and quietly asked "Wasn't that Tegan & Sara's guitar players?" I freaked out and told her yeah it was. We kinda felt stupid the rest of the night for not having talked to them.

Second (awesome awesome) thing that happened:
When we reached The Norva, Brittany had heard that Rouge Wave was going to be there on the 27th, and we had chatted about how she wanted to go and we all joked about coming back and seeing them. As we were standing there, a guy that was working there started passing something to everyone in the line. He got to us and handed me it first, I looked at it. And it was a Rouge Wave ticket. I smiled, and he told me that he remembered faces. He then handed Sophia and then Brittany tickets also, and Brittany's face was priceless. So I'm pretty sure we are going to try and go back for it. I mean come on, free tickets? Yes dude.


Third thing:
It was bloody hot outside, and just when I thought we would never get to go inside and into the AC, the line started moving. And made our way over near the stage. Once inside, we waited around another hour and then Hesta Prynn, and she was interesting, and very drunk. She played a 45ish mintue set (too long for me I was ready for Tegan & Sara after her second song). Hesta got off stage dramatically and then the crew came on and took her stuff on stage.

Fourth (amazing) thing.:
15 mintues of waiting and then the lights went down and Can't Get Next To You by: The Temptations came on and by the end of the song Tegan and Sara were dancing on stage putting their guitars on. It was the cutest thing ever. And then they played, and chatted with us a little. They are amazing live, and the best band I have ever seen live. I would see them over and over again if I could. Ugh.


Tegan & Sara//Encore//Dark Come Soon:




I did not want that night to end.
It was perfect.
I want to do it all over.

Remember when I was so strange and likeable?

I'm sitting at my computer wrapped up in a blanket freezing, listening to Tegan & Sara. This is the first time I have sat down and rested in (somewhat)silence in a while. My head feels completely clear. I realized that all of a sudden I am very content with life. Even in this chaotic mess I'm in, I feel strong and secure. It's rather odd... Being in the circumstances I am in you wouldn't think such a positive mood could come from me. But it has, and I am more than glad. (I'm happy because I'm in a good mood? Double Happiness Points??)

The other day I legitimately had to stand in front of a mirror and tell myself that I was a strong individual person and that no one, and nothing could destroy me. It's weird but it may have worked. Maybe it's just a phase... Maybe I'm ignoring the bigger picture of everything that has happened. But I have decided that there isn't a point in crying about it. (That or I have cried so much that my eyes have dried out.) It's all in God's hands and there is nothing I can do about it but continue on. What doesn't kill you makes you stronger right?

Although I'm in a wonderful state of mind at the moment, prayer is always much needed.

On a completely different note:
After I had gone to Brazil last summer my parents had misplaced my birth certificate.
Conveniently around the time I was suppose to go get my learners permit. Well recently it has been found and now I can go to the DMV to get my learners, which I'm doing tomorrow morning. (Technically today because it's around 12AM right now) And then off to pick up movies for my "scary movie night" with Sophia. I think we have decided we are at least renting The Crazies & Paranormal Activity. I've heard Paranormal Activity isn't all that scary, but we haven't seen it yet and have wanted to for awhile now.

Well, I think I'm going to wrap this up.
Oh, but for any T&S fans, I found this on their website and it made me incredibly happy:

"Sara and I were asked to perform Alligator on Mamma Yamma, a childrens show on CBC Kids here in Canada back in January. They asked us to change the lyrics so they were more “kid friendly”. See the result below."



And that's all I have to share for the night//morning.
Grace & Peace,
Chelsea Layne D.
