Washington, DC

We got into DC yesterday. It's pretty amazing how little I remember about this place from when I came here in middle school. It seems like that was almost a meaningless trip. I think that a journey to DC is far more enjoyable as an adult than it was as a kid. I really have a bigger appreciation for what is going on in this city. It sorta blows my mind that the White House is so close to the Treasury and Congress is only a few blocks away and none of these people can get together to resolve a fucking thing.
Still, this city is beautiful.

We play 40 miles south of DC tonight in Fredricksburg. I'm not sure what kind of city it is, but we are in one of the most history rich parts of this country, so I'm trying to see some.

Today, I'm going to hold you out a bit and see if you freak out like I have for the last few days

Sorry I have been kinda bad about reposting stuff on here. Yesterday we arrived in Pittsburgh a day early so the band could meet up with friends and party. Katrina cut my hair and it feels good to not have a mop on my dome anymore. I had a great time with the Pittsburgh crew. Made us loads of food and bought beer stayed up, smoked us out and blasted music until the wee hours of the morning.

I miss her, more and more. But I feel that our bond is growning and I'm able to let up on the crazieness I can enstil on her. Our conversations have become more positive and we have found more to talk about. I knew this seperation would do us good and teach us to communicate. I have realized already how important this relationship is. She is my backbone everyday. She gives me hope when I have lost it, she keeps me balanced and centered and I think about her everyday. I hope that she doesn't grow weary at home and is able to stay positive and hopeful that this is the right thing to do.

Being on the road for a day has not really shown me the down side yet. So far everyone is having a really good time. I know that after a few weeks of one another we will be sick of little things. But so long as we are given at least a warm meal and a soft place to lay, we will be fine.

Here are some more pictures of the last few days. Oh and by the way, if you tweet, follow us!

36 hours

almost entirely ready to go. got most everything packed.

I had a 'going away party' last night, in which a bunch of people that I don't know showed up and four of my friends. it's pretty fucking frustrating when people tell you to your face that they care and want to hang out but stand you up at the show. To add a top to that night, Kimmi isn't coming home before I go so I won't be seeing her for the next few months. I guess I know who my friends are in this town, or at least who is worth hanging around.

I don't really know what to do today. I really wish i could get my sleeve worked on. I could ride, but it looks like rain. Maybe I should just spend today alone and not think on this too much.

nightmares about her wake me out of a drunken slumber.

I am trying to keep it positive. I'm trying to keep this up.

But Connor is right.

Looking Forward

First blog and I am going to try and share as much as I can about what this blog is going to be about.
I have spent the last few years noodling around and never accomplishing much in my life. I have had a string of jobs, worked in kitchens, as a stage hand and a touring manager. I'm always traveling and trying to find something that I feel is out there.

This summer I'm heading out on tour again. I will be keeping this blog everyday to keep my friends and family up to date on my situation and what my day entailed. I am leaving in 20 days for South Bend to meet up with The Analyst and join them for a few home shows, get them ready for a 2 weeks on the east coast. We will be back up to South Bend on June 10th for a few days then heading out again for a month to conquer the east coast, south, south west, and west coast. I am so excited for the chance to travel again. I have been stuck in Lafayette for far too long and I have felt this urge to travel for some time. I will be stressed and tested being on the road. I will be locked into a van for almost 2 months with 5 dudes barreling down interstates across the country trying to keep them and myself together.

Keep up with me on here and the entries will be longer and not so bland.

keep up with the tour dates here.
