See ya 2013

Another year is almost over and 2014 is knocking on our doors! Hopefully it can be a year where we all welcome the visitor, who will bring many positive gifts.

For me, 2013 was a kind of a difficult year. Not as traumatic as 2012 was, but it was still hard. I faced a lot of challenges with mental health, lost a friend to suicide, lost my dear grandparents dog and lived in a numb daze a lot of the time. However, I was lucky in that I had my parents there for me and two good noodles friends named Nicole and Claire who put up with my craziness and for some strange reason still wanted to be friends. Siriusly Seriously though, they really helped me in so many ways and inspired to give me hope.

What do I want for 2014? I mainly hope that I can settle and try to find stability. I don’t want to make major plans for the future until I am at a place where I am thinking clearly and can handle all that goes with major decisions (take 2012, where I thought my only option was to start a business). I hope that I will reach out for help and keep striving to get to a good place while also still working on creative projects and sharing love with the people I care about.

Now for some kind of random things. :B

INXS Rocked the Train

INXS

Train Train

I had an absolutely amazing, wonderful, exciting, BRILLIANT time at the Day On The Green on the 25th January! INXS and Train are two bands that I really love, and to be able to see them both live in the one day and so close was absolutely breathtaking. I was in the second row for Train before someone switched seats with me for INXS and I was right at the front, directly facing them. I could not have been any closer (well, unless I was on stage with them). Because I could go on and on, I’ll keep it simple in point form.

– Heat was so intense sweat was poring off everyone, they even had a ‘mist tent’ set up so people could walk through and cool down.
– A band called The Baby Animals played first, I had not heard of them before and I thought they were good, very energetic and had a strong stage presence.
– Train came out and absolutely rocked my world. Lead singer Pat Monahan has a beautiful voice, strong stage presence and is very funny. He was doing some funky dance movies, making faces and cracking jokes.
– Train singer Pat Monahan jumped off the stage and walked around the crowd, he came past the front and he reached over for a high five so I of course took that opportunity!
– INXS came out in suits (I don’t know how they could handle it, it was so warm)
– They played a lot of classic songs and some of the Switch album. They did play a few mixed versions of old songs, but off the new album (remixed Orgional Sin) I was not pleased with this album but hearing the songs live and being caught in the moment made things seem different haha.
– They had a break, came back dressed in costumes. J.D Fortune was wearing a bull hat with horns, it looked funny but strangely cool at the same time (you had to be there)
– They played an absolutely moving version of Don’t Change which did make me quite emotional, and I could tell moved the crowd and even them while they preformed it.
– J.D throw Vodka over those of us in the front, it was refreshing hahh!

Night was amazing. :O

A bit of Happy

I am feeling happy. Mainly related to two big reasons.

  1. I am going to see INXS and Train in January 2011 (tickets ordered today, wooo).
  2. I am in the process of ordering a Macbook Pro, iPad and Adobe Create Suite CS5!

I can’t wait!

Oh a bit of a bummer, I cut my leg on a piece of tin a few days ago (see twitter post) and it is getting sore and red. I may have to have a tetanus shot after all. Icky, but I don’t want it to turn septic and kill me. :0
