Before you ask, no, I didn’t forget about my lovely blog and my even more lovely readers (although I’m not even sure what the point of this blog is anymore…hmmm…).Every time I want to write something, I can never think of anything that is funny and/or won’t bore everyone to tears. So here I am. Possibly boring you to tears, but oh well. It’s not my fault you’re still reading… ;)
For the past couple of days, there’s been a huge fair thingie in downtown St. Louis. There’s been food and parades and food and air shows and concerts and food and more food. Pretty awesome, huh? But wait, it gets better. And no, shockingly, the better-ness doesn’t involve food. Tonight at 8pm, Maroon 5 was playing. MAROON 5. AWESOME BAND. FREE CONCERT. ADAM LEVINE. LISTENING TO MUSIC WHILE EATING FOOD. Ok, maybe food is slightly involved.
Maroon 5 is one of my favorite bands ever, but there were a few problems. 1) it was like a gajillion degrees outside. And I’m barely exaggerating. 2) I wasn’t in a leave-the-house kind of mood. 3) I’m pretty sure the only person I know who knows and likes Maroon 5 is my friend Muriel. Unfortunately, this friend just so happens to be at a camp in Ecuador right now, 4000 miles away. And since I’m pretty sure neither of my parents would really have wanted to go, I didn’t go. Oh yeah, and 4), it was raining like there’s no tomorrow. Seriously, I almost thought it was God flooding the earth all over again. So instead of leaving the house, getting rained on and being surrounded by hundreds of annoying people, I finished redoing my room!
I’ll put up more pictures tomorrow, but I just wanted to show you the lyrics I stenciled above my bed. Long story short, I couldn’t just paint over the stencils. I had to pencil in the letters and then HAND PAINT THEM. BY HAND. Wow, I’m in a caps lock mood today…. anyway, point of the story is it took me hours to do. But it looks pretty cool, no?These lyrics are the chorus of my favorite song in the entire world-On The Brightside by Never Shout Never. It’s one of those songs that I could (and usually do) put on repeat and just listen to forever. And it’s a good self esteem booster. And heaven knows I could use more self-esteem….
Once they were done and I stepped back to admire my handy work, I noticed they were a little lopsided. But hey, I’m a little lopsided too. I..uhh…wanted my artwork to reflect my personality…yeah…something like that. OR, I was too lazy to draw a straight line and follow it, so my lines would be normal-looking. Eh. I’ve heard it both ways.
