constantly moving

Lots of things are happening right now. We played our largest show yet this past Wednesday at the Scrounge. SCPAB gave us this awesome opportunity to open up for our friends Jenny & Tyler. It was a very fun night. The people running the sound system sort of ruined it because they shut off our monitors completely, but we pulled through and ended strong and our friends got to come out and see us and we got to meet new people and people got to listen to what we have worked hard on despite the fact that we could not hear a thing on stage ^_^ IHOP with SCPAB friends and J&T afterwards.

Exciting stuff. Booking a few more shows on and around campus for the end of April/early May. Let us know if you want us to play anywhere (if anyone other than our best-fan-ever Cara reads this). Wednesday ended a six-day performance spree for me, which is more than I should have done. It was very taxing on my singin’ voice yay.

Anyway. I have been reading and thinking a lot. School is not meant to be easy. I have a hard time getting motivated enough to study. I would much rather sit and have coffee and talk, which is what most of my study sessions turn into, since people are much more intriguing than books (some of them at least). Something I have been seriously struggling with is finding faults in others. It is not my place to judge. I find that I over-analyze things (“more than a girl” I was recently told bluntly) and see everything that everyone else messes up. I will never be happy loving someone (or living with someone in this case) if I let every single mess and quirk and smell and piece of trash and food and mail and song and dryer sheet fetish bother me.

It’s been raining a lot and literally every piece of technology that I touch has been dying lately. So depressing. My PC died in February and two laptops have died so now I’m on my third backup, an old Dell Inspiron 1200 which for some reason an ex gave to me a few years after we broke up. I have had a fresh install of XP running for a few hours now so lets hope she holds up.

Lack of technology gives me more time to study and think and talk and read and write and play music, which is a good thing I think. I hate technology. I knew when I started school that majoring in engineering would eventually lead to this conclusion. Bleah >.<

PS – I am officially Asian!

  1. hey now- ‘if anyone other than cara reads this’ does this mean i can’t find you venues?! i’m insulted. also, you have the curse of the engineer: that is, over-analyzing life (instead of analyzing engineering things) and that technology hates you. you sound like every other engineer i know and for that i am sorry. but God can fix it! also– come to mr engineering tm night! ur loverboy kevin is competing (:

  2. teehee you can book us shows too Cara I just knew you would comment if you read that yay ^_^ also, I can’t come because I swore off pageants and I need a nap.

  3. haha Michael, did you really “swear off pageants”? I mean, have you been OD-ing on them recently? If so, good for you. On swearing them off, I mean. Not necessarily OD-ing on them. And sorry about all the technology dying on you. The glove compartment in my car just fell out. That’s not exactly technology, but it’s annoying when things break. Here’s to things working better. Especially life and stuff like that! 🙂
