But here's what has happened since I wrote last.
Audio-Files is a new television series that highlights up-and-coming independent bands across the country (and many come from Provo). This is the new account that I am working on with my PR lab. I am having so much fun working with this client, mainly because it deals with music. Like it on Facebook.
Thank you Imagine Dragons. (Acoustic version of "It's Time.")
If you're in Provo this Thursday, there is a free showing of Audio-Files' first episode. It's free, but you need to register for seats. Do it. I'll be there.
Speaking of Imagine Dragons, they are from Las Vegas. Guess where I went St. Patrick's Day weekend? I went to Vegas with my Nicolle and my Camille. It was exciting and new. I learned very fast not to look at the ground. Unfortunately, no one told the little seven-year-old who was there with his family. He picked up the cards like they were pennies and collected them like they were Pokemon. I'm never bringing my kids to Vegas.
No, we did not see the token sightseeing sites (the fountain and such). No, we did not eat at awesome buffets. But I did have fun with my beautiful friends. And though we retired Saturday night at around 8 or 9, it was because we had walked and shopped the whole day away already. It was a good day.
Oh, also, I'm pretty sure someone was almost being raped outside our hotel door our first night there. All I remember was that I awoke in a delirious state to a woman shouting, "Get off me! Get off me! Get the ---- off me!" Within these several minutes, I kept on thinking, "This will never leave my conscience if she really is being raped right now." But my friends claimed that they heard a man gruffly say, "Hey, leave her alone."
I can sleep peacefully now.
And in between these two things, there was, and still is, a lot of school work. I'm procrastinating it right now.
Also, remember how I love fun.? (The post before this was about their new album. Heck, the first name of this blog was a lyric from "Barlights.") So their March concert sold out. Guess who got tickets? Not me. I was dumb and waited. And waited. And waited. And it sold out. But no worries, there was a free acoustic show earlier that day. Guess who got a wristband? Not me. I was dumb and waited. And waited. And waited. And they ran out of wristbands.
But then again, guess who also has Crystal? I do. Crystal convinced her friend to give up her wristband for me. Thank you Crystal and friend. Thank you thank you thank you.
And now I can listen to fun.'s album without feeling sad.
Mhmm. And my dear followers, I have been riding my bike like crazy around Provo. (When I say around Provo, I really mean to my sister's house and the grocery store.) Be proud of me. I've come a long way from being afraid of my bicycle.
I love you all.
