It looks like Bayside and Saves The Day will be heading out on a co-headlining tour together in August and September. It also seems like I Am The Avalanche will be direct support for the tour as they will begin touring in support of their second and long-awaited LP. Transit is also being rumored to have a spot on the tour, but they are the least certain of bands at this time. Dates and a full line-up should be announced soon.
THIS IS UNREAL.
As legit as the rapture!
new york was the end all-be all. I thought I needed it to validate myself and everything I had done up to this point- to prove to myself that I could “make it.” Got up here, got settled- point proven. Insane connections, done. So, now what?
Alot of people have some serious misconceptions about this city. I, like many new yorkers, work nearly 12 hours a day, every day. Add 30 minute commutes there and back and your day is shot. I average three hours of sleep a night, by choice- I have to do things like laundry and cooking to remind myself that I am not some sort of machine, I take time to talk to the man I love at the end of the day because distance forces us to make unusual sacrifices (even though I’ve been consistently falling asleep on the phone every night-Oohp.) I truly enjoy what I do, so my days fly by. Alex keeps reminding me how lucky I am, how many people would love to be in my shoes, and he’s right- I don’t take it for granted. Every dime spent supporting my life up here has been worth it for the look on peoples faces when they see my resume, for the way I feel walking into an interview, for how capable and confident I feel moving forward.
Back to my point, life in New York in no way resembles the ridicularity seen in movies, read in books and dreamed up in my 15 year old brain, there is not enough time in my day, not enough money in the bank- unless of course you hardly work and you & your parents have no problem with you digging deep into their pockets to maintain some insane lifestyle of shopping, eating and (probably) going out with skeezebag promoters to ridiculous nightclubs. (reference; my facebook album via 3 years ago). I want more, I am so ready to move forward, even if it means leaving new york behind. I am ready to begin a rewarding career that doesn’t consume every other aspect of my life and health.
New york has so much to offer, it’s culture and people, food and music. The streets seem more alive here, this city means a lot to me and it will no doubt play a major role in my future- this is not goodbye, my love for the city is not an affair, it’s lifelong- but I don’t need to be here to feel like I’m doing the right thing with my life. An opportunity has presented itself that is impossible to pass up, in a city I never considered, I’d be surrounded by like-minded individuals, in an environment that fosters creativity, individualism and forward-thinking. It’s absolutely gorgeous, to boot! full benefits, room to grow and move around. My stomach drops every time I think about it, first-kiss-butterflies-kind of-feeling.
Here I am packing my bags, filling boxes and booking plane tickets. My feet will be (completely un-firmly) planted in Tallahassee in four days and I cannot wait to fill my short time there with the beautiful faces of the people I love, sunshine, cooking with my man and preparing for the next BIG step. fingers crossed- hard.
i haven’t posted anything on my tumblr since the first week i made it haha. i seriously am so behind the current technology wave….i use to be so up-to-date, i think i need to get with it or im going to be the most clueless 23 yr old in modern america.
that being said, i miss my girlfriend and my old house in tallahassee. im ready for a month off to live a temporary normal life before warped tour massacres me
Look who’s back! Just when I was about to start updating for you. Also, me too bub- so much-HH, our bed, charlie hurley and desmond, dinners on the “porch”, but looking forward to the new house . You really are horrible with this technology business- and I’m alarmingly good at it. You do the cooking and cleaning, I’ll handle the rest- done deal.
