Molly validates my musical choices.
show tonight at emo’s was pretty good. but last night, Ra Ra Riot was amazing. and so was givers. this internship thing is pretty cool when I get to see so many shows. I’ll probably see around 80 shows this year, if not more. it starting to make me really love places that are quiet. and I am falling in love with headphones, where I control how loud things are, and what I listen to.
I just talked with an old friend for 82 minutes on the phone. She’s one of the only people to know me from a crazy period of my life when I was 19. That was neat. Hope to see her on Thursday in Dallas. We used to date, and we’re both glad we’re not dating anymore, since we talked about our current relationships, which are much better. Speaking of, it sucks but school is more important than me. Way more important. I can’t wait for friday. I plan to do nothing. Nothing at all.
for the past few weeks. this is changing now.
But do you and I realize what we are doing at this point? We are molding Jesus into our own image. He is beginning to look a lot like us because, after all, that is whom we are most comfortable with. And the danger now is that when we gather in our church building to sing and lift up our hands in worship, we may not actually be worshipping the Jesus of the Bible. Instead we may be worshipping ourselves.” —David Platt , “The Radical” (via kristinasanford)

are some of the most annoying commercials I’ve ever seen. Why would you parody the macarena?
there is something out there that wants to be my god, and yet somehow, I’m suppose to say no, I can wait, and my head hurts from failure, the fact I am flawed, if things would be different if I sat down and prayed, I am so sure of something sometimes, yet act like I’m clueless, I walk into a room full of bombs with lit fuses, and I sit in a silence made up of fuses lit, and think to myself, “this is heaven, this is it.”
looks better sleeping then most people I know. sort of nuts.
this made my night.
but there isn’t. He was simply one of the most amazing things I’ve ever seen, and that’s all I can say about it.
“you are the life I needed all along”
The difference between life and books are simple to see. Well, obviously, life isn’t made of paper, but this is a metaphor, so let’s not be so serious. But isn’t life compared to books and chapters and what not? It is, isn’t it? I’m not making this up, am I? No. No I’m not. So, I’m old. I’m 24. And here’s the point. I think I’m finally in a new chapter. I got a text today, that sort of made me laugh, and I think something went off that made me think this new chapter had sort of begun. If I think about this, this is maybe the sixth coming of Daniel. Daniel 6.0, if you will. You might say I’m Revenge of the Sith (the sixth Star Wars film released), but you’d be wrong (dead wrong.) I’m Return of the Jedi (the sixth chapter in the series). A better example would be to say I’m Daniel Vega and Half-Blood Prince. This makes more sense, as I was really into Star Wars as a child, and now am really into Harry Potter as a older child.
New chapters in life are not like chapters in book. Have you read a Dan Brown novel? I’ve read four of them, and they make you feel like a genius. Some chapters are a page long. You feel like you’re breezing through the book. But life isn’t like a Dan Brown novel (which I’m sure you were aware of. I mean, I haven’t even been to Europe). So this realization of being in a new chapter is a big thing. A big good thing. A really big good thing.
So good job Daniel. Congratulations. You’ve done it. Yeah buddy.
the way you folded my sleeves, driving home that night,
it makes me want to wear a suit almost every other day,
all it takes is your touch, and I think I feel alright,
though unbelievable at times, no words could ever say,
and so I close my eyes, and listen to the fan,
he talks to us as if we’re not about to fall asleep,
someone so beautiful, it’s hard to understand,
how or why this girl is laying next to me.
sometimes, my favorite thing in the world is blankey, my blanket.
um… this isn’t actually question erin, but it’s still pretty cool.
no stop asking me this
walk you upstairs, and put you to bed,
you look beautiful and exhausted, knocked out from the medicine,
hit by a train, but that dress was amazing,
if the allergies did anything, they let me tuck you in.
of our new album is done. it gets mastered tomorrow.
today I bounced from recording studio to emo’s (music venue) back to recording studio back to venue. music is my life.
my life is pretty cool.
what’s that? amazing boyfriend? yeah thought so.
AND why doesn’t anyone ever as me if I’m dating the wonderful beautiful amazing brooke butler?! huh?! I might have some opinions on the matter!
but I don’t.
danielvega replied to your post:Are you sureeeeeeeee you and daniel vega aren’t dating? any future there?
yeah no way.
yeah, absolutely not.
never ever ever ever ever never ever.
except…well… the thing about that is… the truth would be… in all honesty… to be frank… to be straight forward on the matter…
I am the first person to hear the finished mixes of two new Zlam Dunk songs. Oh my gosh. They are so amazing. I cannot wait for this record to be done. IT WILL BE DONE THURSDAY! MIXED AND MASTERED!!
And it only cost like… five thousand dollars. Seriously… let me add this up… 8 days in the studio… plus mastering… ok… it was only 4500 dollars. And it blows my mind to think that my band worked for that money. We made that money with out asking for any help. We made that money with shows, which means we made that money sweating our faces off doing the thing we love to do. I am so blessed to be in this band, let alone my other band.
I have videos to eventually post, when they’re done being edited and I can’t wait for some up coming shows we have.
I feel like Kanye West I’m so positive about all this.
on an arbitrary numbering heart system.
that as long as I can make music and love the people I love, I will be happy and satisfied. And I’m glad these things don’t relate to my career, education, or financial status.
