Hey, how are you? I've just finished up my first semester at college and everything went really well. I'm actually on Christmas break now until January 5, so I'm excited to just relax and find some time for myself. So how is life treating you?
Posted by straightjackt on Oct 18, 2008 1:20 AM (GMT-04:00)
Well, I'm pleased to tell you that last Sunday, I went to a Relient K concert. It was amazing. Anyway, college is still going pretty well, except for my algebra class. I'm definitely not a math person! Other than that, I"m just waiting for winter so that I can start snowboarding again. What's new with you nowadays?
Posted by straightjackt on Sep 19, 2008 8:23 PM (GMT-04:00)
So what was your favorite food in Italy? I can't imagine what the pizza tastes like! I hope you took lots of pictures! :-) As far as college, my workload hasn't gone down any. But I'm dealing with it, still trying to keep a social life, and basically just trying to enjoy the college experience. I'm double majoring in journalism and creative writing. So what else is new with you? How's work?
Posted by straightjackt on Aug 30, 2008 2:58 AM (GMT-04:00)
Wow, we haven't talked in so long! It was soooo nice to hear from you! It sounds like you've been living the good life the past few months, huh? :-P I bet Europe was absolutely amazing. I've always wanted to go to Italy . . . how was that? Well, my summer consisted of a full-time job. It wasn't bad - just office work - but now I'm officially a college student. I have one week in and I love it. Much different than high school. Now I'm just suffering with the workload, ya know?!
Posted by straightjackt on May 26, 2008 6:18 PM (GMT-04:00)
Hey! Nice to hear from you! :-) Don't worry about the delay - I'm usually pretty slow in replying anymore because things have been busy for me. I guess that's because my senior year is FINALLY coming to a close. I officially have 3.5 days left of high school until I graduate! I am sooooooooooo exicited! Sounds like things have been going well for you, too, which is good to hear. I don't know about you, but I'm ready for summer! It's been really hot here lately - so it's making me anxious to swim and just relax for once! Take it easy . . . and I'll talk to you soon!
Posted by straightjackt on Mar 20, 2008 7:06 PM (GMT-04:00)
Don't worry about not getting back to me sooner - I'm sure I'm just as busy as you! I have so many scholarship applications to fill out, and most, if not all, include essays. I feel like I've put over a million words onto paper within the last month! Anyway, things have been going pretty well. My senior year is finally winding down, and now I just have to get ready for college. I have a feeling it won't be hard to adapt, so we'll see. What about you? How is work going for you? As far as concerts, I'm supposed to go see Boys Like Girls in a few weeks, so that should be fun. Hope to hear from you soon, but in the meantime, have a nice Easter! :-)
Posted by straightjackt on Feb 12, 2008 3:21 PM (GMT-04:00)
I'm doing well, just waiting for my senior year to finally start winding down! I'm going to start college at the end of August. I'm a little nervous, but I think I'll be all right. So what's new with you? Any new concerts coming up????
Posted by straightjackt on Jan 7, 2008 8:49 PM (GMT-04:00)
I hope you had a great Christmas and an even better New Year! How did you celebrate your New Year, by the way? I just basically played Guitar Hero with a few friends, then came home and watched the ball drop with my family. So what are you looking forward to this year? I'm so ready to graduate and start college . . . it should be wayyyy better than high school!
Posted by straightjackt on Dec 20, 2007 9:12 PM (GMT-04:00)
Well hello there! I'm definitely excited for Christmas and Christmas break, which starts tomorrow (FINALLY!). I wish I could experience a "hot" Christmas rather than a cold one, but I don't know how I'd react, since it would be a completely different experience for me! As far as the Spill Canvas, if you like Dashboard, you'd like them. :-) Anyway, I hope you have an awesome Christmas, New Year's, and birthday!!!!!!!! :o)
Posted by straightjackt on Nov 18, 2007 3:09 AM (GMT-04:00)
Hey! Glad to hear from you! Sorry it took me so long to reply again - I've been really sick. Anyway, it's snowing here, and everyone is getting ready for Christmas! It's weird to know that the "beaches are getting packed" when I can't even go outside without a coat on! Hahaha! Hopefully everything works out for the next tour for the both of us. I really wanna hear The Shade live as well, so don't feel bad! The only thing that is holding me up right now is the fact that I met THE SPILL CANVAS last Sunday, which was incredible. They are definitely in my top 5 fave bands! So how are things going for you? Any new concerts or fun events that I don't know about?!
Posted by straightjackt on Oct 31, 2007 2:13 AM (GMT-04:00)
Sorry about my delay - again. It's my senior year of high school, so things have been so hectic for me. I usually only have time to get on the boards and post; rarely do I get to write back to my comments :-( Anyway, I hope this finds you well! It's getting colder here in Pennsylvania, so I'm definitely looking forward to some snowboarding!!!!! Glad to hear that you like the new album as well. Now we just need to wait for the spring tour - I can just see the dates now - Pennsylvania and Australia! :-) Hope to hear from you soon! In the meantime, take care!
Posted by so_real on Oct 9, 2007 11:03 AM (GMT-04:00)
got it today, damn that took so long! but the john ralston cd was a great surprise. have you been to melbourne yet?
Posted by straightjackt on Oct 8, 2007 10:34 PM (GMT-04:00)
I'm sooooooooo sorry I never commented you back from like, over a month ago I've just been so busy with school activities and I really don't have a life anymore! I think the album is brilliant - what do you think of it? I wasn't able to go to any of the shows because my parents wouldn't budge, but word is that there will be a spring tour, so I'm definitely excited about that! ;-)
Posted by so_real on Oct 7, 2007 12:13 PM (GMT-04:00)
i still dont have mine.. this is so annoying... ahh am I ever going to get it!
Posted by so_real on Sep 20, 2007 2:25 PM (GMT-04:00)
it would be good, positive thoughts!
Posted by so_real on Sep 19, 2007 4:03 PM (GMT-04:00)
fingers crossed, but i doubt it, it doesn't leave them much time after their last gig until christmas...
Posted by so_real on Sep 19, 2007 1:28 AM (GMT-04:00)
to South Africa, so they won't tour there. I'm there for 11 months, but I am traveling after that so I might see them somewhere? Hopefully anyways. Yeah I love Melbourne too.
Posted by so_real on Sep 17, 2007 2:54 PM (GMT-04:00)
they have to come soon. I am going overseas, leaving January 17, and I will die if I don't get to see them before that. All is good here in Melbourne, hows Sydney treating you?
Posted by so_real on Sep 17, 2007 2:53 PM (GMT-04:00)
Posted by so_real on Sep 16, 2007 2:12 PM (GMT-04:00)
How are you? just thought I would say hias we are the only one online now. hope you have a good night!
Posted by straightjackt on Aug 28, 2007 8:41 PM (GMT-04:00)
Hi! Sorry it took me a gazillion years to write back. School started on the 28th, and I've been super busy. I can't believe that summer has ended, but like I said, I'm finally a senior in high school, so that helps the situation. Anyway, what have you been up to?
Posted by straightjackt on Aug 10, 2007 5:31 PM (GMT-04:00)
Wow ~ sorry it has taken me this long to reply. I have been busy with so many things, just trying to get stuff ready for the new school year. It's pretty much ruined since my parents won't let me go to any Dash shows, but there's really nothing I can do. Anyway, yes, I have been watching old Dawson's episodes. I have the whole collection, and I just got into it two or so years ago <LoL> Actually, I always heard Chris talking about it, so I thought I'd check it out since he has such good taste ;-) I went to Warped Tour two days ago and it was awesome! I get to see Ace Enders from the Early November soon, too. Hope things are going well!
Posted by straightjackt on Jul 21, 2007 6:24 PM (GMT-04:00)
I slept in until 12:30 today - I know that's really terrible, but I've been staying up 'til about 3 in the morning! Basically doing nothing - just writing or watching Dawson's Creek! Hahahaha. So you're a big fan of soccer? That's pretty cool. Did you hear about the Beckham's moving to the U.S.? Victoria already has her own reality show, so I've heard. I agree that the solo shows are awesome - hopefully they will come back to Australia to see you :oP It's funny you asked about any gigs lately because I actually did go to one last night. The band was pretty good . . . my friends didn't like them, but I did. I really don't have any plans for the weekend - I do have to write some newspaper columns but other than that, just taking some time to relax and what not. Have a great day!!!!!!!
Posted by straightjackt on Jul 20, 2007 2:22 AM (GMT-04:00)
That's awesome that you enjoyed skiing. I'll definitely have to try skiing this season, and give up a night on my snowboard! I'm getting my senior pics taken on the 22, so I'm taking my snowboard with me as a prop <LoL> Actually I only found out about my instructor's drug use after I was telling one of my guy friends how cute he was. My friend Wayne was like, "Ummmm, sorry, but word around here is that he's into the drug scene." Hahahah oh well - I have a boyfriend anyway :o) Anyway, I guess instructors are pretty much paid to help you up when you fall as opposed to laughing at you?! Well, if he did, don't feel bad, because I got laughed at a lot when I first started because I would perform these major tumbles down the hill . . . pretty funny picturing it in the back of my mind now, when it's all said and done. I'm really excited to find out if Dash is touring - so far the rumors are that Chris will be doing some solo shows in late August/September. That would be perfect since my b-day is Sept. 24. Hey, look on the bright side ~ at least you got your chance to meet Carrabba - I'm still stuck here behind this screen crying because I'm probably one of the only board members left (or at least that's what it feels like) who hasn't met him yet. :-( Anyway, anything else new with you???
Posted by straightjackt on Jul 14, 2007 3:39 AM (GMT-04:00)
I haven't heard from you in awhile!!! I'm great, how are you?! That's so awesome that you had a fun holiday - complete with snow tubing and skiing! Which one did you like better? That's so funny, because when I went snowboarding for the first time my instructor was sooooooooo cute! But then I found out that he did drugs?! So it was like, ummm ~ I think the cuteness wore off! Well, my class is finally over today - I'm so relieved because now I can actually feel like I have a summer! Well, I have a lot of other things planned . . . cookouts, bowling, miniature golfing with friends ~ all that good stuff! So you went to Live Earth? That's so awesome! You get to go to a lot of concerts . . . but are you wondering the same thing as me: WHERE IS DASHBOARD???????!!!!!!!!!
Posted by straightjackt on Jun 28, 2007 10:27 PM (GMT-04:00)
Heyyy! How are ya??? My summer is great but busy - internships and online classes - I feel like I'm still in school! How pathetic, I know! The college class is going good so far - it's freshman english, so that means a lot of writing!!!!!!!! Plus I get so many different assignments and we have very little time to complete them, so it's definitely challenging. Anyway, did you get to go skiing yet? I'd go snowboarding, too . . . you may even end up liking it better! :-) It's definitely hard at first, I won't lie, but once you get away from all the aches and pains and make a clean run down the slope, you'll fall in love with the adrenaline rush! Oh, drum corp. isn't a band - or an official band if that's how you took it - it's just a bunch of kids playing the drums <LoL> I didn't get to see it, but I heard the shows are pretty entertaining. Live Earth - yeah, I think I've heard of it. What bands are playing in Australia?
Posted by straightjackt on Jun 18, 2007 4:23 PM (GMT-04:00)
Well, summer is off to a decent start, even though my mom signed me up for an online college class and I have HOMEWORK!? Yeah, it's kinda crazy, but I'll get some college credits, which will definitely benefit me in the future. Today it's soooooooooo hot out, I really feel like going swimming! It's so weird to know that while we're celebrating the extremely hot weather, you're gearing up for a day on the slopes! Have you ever gone skiing before? I've only tried snowboarding, but skiing looks easier because you have control of BOTH feet! Good luck if you get to go, though! Woah those bands you went to see have really weird names; I've never heard of them before. Did you like them? My friend wanted me to go to a drum corp show with him but I wasn't able to make it, so that kinda disappointed me. Well, guess I better get back to my work . . . take it easy and stay warm! :oP
Posted by straightjackt on Jun 4, 2007 11:48 PM (GMT-04:00)
The queen's birthday?! That's pretty cool. Well, this weekend I went to a few graduation parties, and now I'm just so excited that it's finally summer. I've waited for how long, and it's amazing that it finally arrived <LoL> Anyway I won the $550 for community service and a writing I did for the school . . . I got my laptop, so now I've been doing more writing. I'm addicted! :-)
Posted by straightjackt on May 30, 2007 12:36 AM (GMT-04:00)
2 more days and school is out! I'm really looking forward to summer, as it is getting closer by the day! My weekend was better; I ended up feeling much better by Monday. Anyway, I won $550 today at my school awards day . . . and I finally bought my laptop, so I'm really excited! Woops, sorry I misunderstood when your break was, but at least you get to have one! Should be funnnnnn for you! :-)
Posted by straightjackt on May 24, 2007 8:53 PM (GMT-04:00)
I think I'm getting sick . . . I came home from school today with a fever and a headache. Not good, I know! :-( Anyway I hope I get that picture too - especially after looking at yours with Chris - it's soooooooooo adorable! If I were you I would have that as a poster in my room <LoL> Let's see, if I met him, I would just probably thank him for everything, and ask him a few questions if I wasn't crying or anything. Honestly, I think I would bawl my eyes out if I got to hug him because after watching him on TV and all that he just seems like an illusion/fantasy! :-) That's good that you're giving yourself a break in 2 weeks - I'm sure you deserve it! School is out in 4 doors - cannot wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I don't have many plans for the weekend with the way I feel now, but if I'm feeling better I wanted to go out to eat with my cousin since we don't get a chance to spend a lot of time together anymore. What about you?
Posted by straightjackt on May 21, 2007 10:21 PM (GMT-04:00)
All I want is to meet Chris and get that picture I've been waiting for. Seriously . . . I would be eternally grateful!!!!!!!!!! Anyway, my weekend was decent ~ I had a baby shower, then went to pick out a color to paint the walls of our new computer room. Today I skipped school (a well-deserved break for me!) and then hopefully DC will announce the tour. I'm really getting anxious!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Posted by straightjackt on May 16, 2007 9:24 PM (GMT-04:00)
17500 tickets in 5 hours?! That is serioiusly crazy. I am just praying to God that DC will come close to where I live so I can see them this summer. That's seriously one of the biggest things, if not the biggest, that I'm looking forward to. Anyway, that's awesome that your concert was fun. I haven't been doing too much this week, just trying to keep up with all my school-related duties, but like I keep saying, it's almost summer. I just have to keep telling myself that so I can keep sane. The more I want the days to go faster the slower they go <LoL> Anyway I'm looking forward to the weekend - two more days to go!
Posted by straightjackt on May 11, 2007 12:12 AM (GMT-04:00)
It's already Friday in Australia - lucky you! I'm so glad I'll get to relax this weekend . . . I feel too worn down. Well, I have to plan some stuff for my mom for Mother's Day - I think I'm going to take her to a play. I hope your concert is fun, make sure you let me know how it went! Have a great one!
Posted by straightjackt on May 10, 2007 12:22 AM (GMT-04:00)
What an amazing opportunity ~ to sit in a room with music execs!!!!! I would absolutely love that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yeah, prom was really nice, just glad that everyone else had a good time as well, and now that's one less thing that I have to worry about, ya know? Back to school tomorrow after two field trips in the past two days, but thank goodness it's going to be Thursday. Then I think I'll have 16 more days left and summmmmmmmmmer! Do you have any plans for summer besides a DC concert?! ;-)
Posted by straightjackt on May 6, 2007 2:41 PM (GMT-04:00)
Well, prom was just last night and after all the work we put into it, everyone was impressed and had a terrific time. WHAT A RELIEF! I pretty much danced all night so my feet really hurt this morning, but it's all good! What have you been up to? It's gonna be another busy week for me, but if I got through this one I'm sure I'll be okay! Nothing else is new, just feels nice right now to finally relax!!!!!!!!!!!!! Have a great week!
Posted by straightjackt on Apr 28, 2007 3:32 PM (GMT-04:00)
Well, I know what you mean - but maybe shows will change and they'll have new age limits or something?! Ahhhh I just woke up and I'm sooooooooooo tired. I didn't get to bed until 1 last night and right now it's 10:30! I'm going shopping today with my mom and I think that's about it, which is totally fine with me. The blood drive thing should be fun, especially because my cousin works with the Red Cross and she'll be there. I would give blood, but my cousin says I'm underweight and need to gain a few pounds . . . for example, I'm 110 now, and she recommends that I be 115 that way when they take my blood I won't get sick. Oh well . . . have a good weekend too, even though yours is almost over :-(
Posted by straightjackt on Apr 27, 2007 9:55 PM (GMT-04:00)
Bands = great. As long as they don't play country music or any other music that I don't like <LoL> When is your birthday, anyway? Mine is in September, and then I'll be 18 and legal! Hahahaa! Sounds like you have a pretty relaxing weekend planned . . . same here. I have every single day on my calendar jam-packed next week. From prom, to volunteering at a blood drive, to softball games every day after school . . . it's going to be Crazzzzzzzy so wish me luck! Have fun shopping and at the soccer game!!!!!!!!!!
Posted by straightjackt on Apr 24, 2007 11:31 PM (GMT-04:00)
Dashboard at my prom would be absolutely amazing. A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. We didn't arrange for a band to be there - just a DJ. Kids at my school like the R&B, rap stuff, so most of them wouldn't appreciate a band. I actually met Ian at a school function - he was a guest speaker, if you want to call it that. He was so nice, I even got my picture taken with him. Now he's working for MTV ;-) How was your day? Mine was better than I thought it was going to be, but I have a feeling that I'm going to be up late tonight working on my book report - fun, fun, fun!?
Posted by straightjackt on Apr 23, 2007 11:39 PM (GMT-04:00)
One more thing: when you and I first started talking, it was about Survivor, right? Well, a few weeks ago I met Ian Rosenberger from the 10th season of Survivor. If you Google him he doesn't look thattttttt cute while on the island, but he was gorgeous when I met him! ;-) Just thought I'd share that with you <LoL>
Posted by straightjackt on Apr 23, 2007 11:37 PM (GMT-04:00)
Unfortunately I'm only a junior in HS. I should be a senior but for some reason my parents sent me to school a year late. I'm not stupid or anything <LoL> I think they just thought it'd be good for me??? Who knows. So 26 left of my junior year, 180 days left for my senior year! Luckily, everything is organized for prom. I got a purple dress, which really fits me well, and since I'm one of the people who planned it, I'm mostly excited to see all my hard work pay off! ;-)
Posted by straightjackt on Apr 22, 2007 3:57 PM (GMT-04:00)
Those shootings are very sad . . . and of course unfortunate. My weekend was pretty decent; I actually slept most of the time because I've been so run-down with everything. Prom is coming up on May 5th, and everyone is so excited about it. PLUS summer is just around the corner, which is always a good thing! 26 days of school left for me! :-) Have a great week at work!
Posted by straightjackt on Apr 19, 2007 10:44 PM (GMT-04:00)
The week was kinda depressing after hearing about those Virginia Tech shootings - it's so sad! Anyway, I'm so glad to hear that you had a blast at your concerts! Did you get any good pictures and did you have good seats/spots? I hope so! Let's see, nothing is really new with me, I'm just busy with the same old stuff . . . but you're right, the weekend is soooooo close, so that's definitely a huge relief! :-)
Posted by straightjackt on Apr 10, 2007 8:49 PM (GMT-04:00)
Easter was good - ate too much, though. I hate when that happens! Making April is a new band, and I'm glad you checked them out! They do resemble Dashboard quite a bit. I can't believe you're going to see Ben Kweller and John Mayer . . . you are going to have a blast! LUCKY DUCK! I'm going to a local show on the 20th, hopefully it'll be fun. I bet all those guys love goin down to Australia - they probably take a vacation while they are at it! I hope this week goes by fast ~ the good thing is, I'm feeling better. It took me almost forever to get rid of that cold. Welp, have a great day! :o)
Posted by straightjackt on Apr 8, 2007 12:46 AM (GMT-04:00)
I'm feeling a little better after getting out of my house today. I went shopping with my cousins and aunts - it was very fun, even though I didn't really buy anything :-P Making April kinda sounds like Dashboard - but of course no one comes close! Just check out myspace.com/makingapril and you can check them out! There's a concert coming near me very soon; I think it's on the 20th, so hopefully I'll get to go to a show, like you! Make sure you let me know how it went! Until then, have a great Easter! Hope you eat lots of chocolate and candy <LoL>
Posted by straightjackt on Apr 6, 2007 1:29 PM (GMT-04:00)
I just came down with a nasty cold - I woke up all congested and everything, so I'm hoping I'll get better by Easter Sunday! I hope you get to go to that music festival - it definitely sounds fun! And of course, shopping sounds fun, too! I should probably make it a point to get out of this house and get some fresh air, but believe it or not, it SNOWED here yesterday! It's still freeeeeeeezing! As far as deciding a major, I still have a full year to go. I just wanted to decide early because my mom wanted to sign me up for those summer college credit courses. I did the music review on Making April - you should check them out - they are really nice and great people! Until then, hope you have a great Easter and have lots of fun at your shows and shopping! :-)
Posted by straightjackt on Apr 2, 2007 1:44 AM (GMT-04:00)
Can you believe Easter is almost here - already? Seems like it was just Christmas, huh?! I do get a few days off from school for Easter break but it's not much since we had snow days . . . complicated story if you're not familiar with how that works. Anyway, I still have my schedule jam packed - actually, 4 softball games are scheduled (I think I may skip out on two! shhhhhhhh!) and my mom made an appointment with two colleges so I can get things straight . . . I'm trying to decide about online summer classes in order to earn credits for college, plus I'm anxious to decide a major. Like, I know I'm going for some kind of writing - but what kind? Professional? Creative? Communications? Journalism????????????? By the way, Red Lobster is a restaurant - sorry, I assumed that you had those down in Australia - my bad! And to answer your ? about prom - it's in May, and since I'm a class officer who helps with the planning, we still have a lot of things to get ready and order . . . FUN, FUN, FUN! My weekend was good - went fast, of course. I played some volleyball, shopped with my mom and sister, and worked on a big music review for my school newspaper. I'm glad you had a good weekend too, but by the time you read this it's probably going to be Tuesday in Australia! <LoL> Have fun at work!!!!!!!!!
Posted by straightjackt on Mar 25, 2007 6:17 PM (GMT-04:00)
Well, my weekend was great. I went to Red Lobster Friday, spent the night at my cousin's, went prom dress shopping Saturday, and went grocery shopping with my parents today. I'm glad you had fun at the concert - and the Kaiser Chiefs - I had the Everyday I Love You Less and Less song stuck in my head since I read your comment <LoL> Any plans for the week besides work? Nothing for me. Yet. Have a great one!
Posted by straightjackt on Mar 17, 2007 2:52 PM (GMT-04:00)
Good to hear from you! I'm really bored right now because we got a snowstorm and my parents don't think it's a good idea to go shopping, like I wanted to today. I hope your concert is great and that's awesome that you won tickets! You must have some good luck on your side, huh? Well make sure you let me know how it goes. Have a good rest of the weekend!
Posted by straightjackt on Mar 13, 2007 2:48 AM (GMT-04:00)
The SAT's aren't final exams - you don't take them in school. They are just fancy standardized tests that colleges want to see your scores from and with good scores, you get into better colleges. I get my score back on April 5th so I'm really anxious about it. Softball is going good, thanks for asking. Coach says for someone who has never played in her whole entire life I'm actually improving and I really am working hard to prove that I'm ready to get in the game. Our first game is actually at the end of March, so we'll see if he puts me in! Anyway, I would love to see an acoustic show . . . well, at least you got to meet Chris! Lucky duck! I have that yet to do, which I really can't wait for. That thread in the DC forum is kinda depressing :-( Anyway I'm really tired and I need to blow dry my hair before bed so I'll talk to you soon!
Posted by straightjackt on Mar 10, 2007 8:44 PM (GMT-04:00)
I'm really tired because I had to wake up at 5:30 today for SAT's. I think I did pretty decent, I mean, I hate math, but I'm pretty sure I did great on my essay, at least. I'm gonna make this quick because of my tiredness so sorry! :-( Anyway I'll download those two songs ASAP ~ thanks for the recommendations! Softball was good, it's gonna take a lot of practice but hopefully the coach will put me in the game since I'm really trying to work hard and prove myself. Oh man that would be a complete letdown if Chris cancelled a show. I know how upset I was that I didn't get to meet him, Say Anything and Ben Lee but at least my show wasn't cancelled! Hopefully you'll get reimbursed, ya know?! Wow - a show on a beach! That would make for some really nice pictures of Chris, huh???!!! Time for a nap . . . have a good day/night/whatever <LoL>

I only downloaded one song by the Kaiser Chiefs - I love you less and less or something like that. Actually, I really like it! I'm pretty much open to ANY kind of music, except for country and screaming music and techo usually gives me a headache <LoL> So yeah, softball practice starts in an hour or two so I'm a little nervous because I've never played before but we'll see how it goes. Oh - the SAT's are a big test that a lot of people take and colleges use it - basically, if you have good scores, you can get into a good college. Awwww why did your solo show in Australia get cancelled? I would be so upset! Did you see the post where the one person was like, "Chris shaved his head in honor of Britney!" I thought that was a litle strange, but I doubt it's true. Anyway, gotta get dressed and ready for practice so I'll talk to you soon. Have a good night! -Kayla
Posted by straightjackt on Mar 5, 2007 9:21 PM (GMT-04:00)
I'm not really looking forward to the SAT's. They are probably going to make me feel like I should've read the dictionary everyday of my life, seeing as how they expect you to know some really tough words. I'm checking out the kaiser chiefs now and I'll let you know what I think. Anyway the Crocs shoes are comfortable -for $30 they better be! <LoL> Alright well I have a lot of homework to do and I'm sure you're busy or tired or something hahaha so I'll let you go and talk to you soon! :o)
Posted by straightjackt on Mar 4, 2007 6:15 PM (GMT-04:00)
Figures - the weekend goes sooooooo fast! Let's see, shopping was awesome . . . I even bought myself a pair of Crocs shoes. Did you ever hear of them??? Anyway, I never heard of those bands - what do they sound like? Maybe I'll check them out. Oh, and your dream? That's really awesome! I've had plenty of Dashboard dreams and all of them have been awesome as well! I love Chris's new shaved head, don't you? Annnnnd if they are touring in the summer? How awesome is that gonna be? Anyway, back to school for me too, tomorrow - but I hope you have a great week. Maybe it won't be as busy as mine. Softball starts tomorrow, I have to take SAT's Saturday and more standardized tests in school. FUN, FUN, FUN!!!!!!!! :oP
Posted by straightjackt on Mar 2, 2007 8:54 PM (GMT-04:00)
Well I just got home from school . . . I'm really glad the weekend is finally here. It was a long week, just kinda boring. Sounds like you're in for a good time. I think I am too; I'm going shopping tomorrow in order to get fitted for a dress because I'm in my cousin's wedding in August. Should be fun ~ we'll see! Have a great one! :oP
Posted by straightjackt on Feb 28, 2007 8:41 PM (GMT-04:00)
You know what's funny? Drums would be the next instrument I would love to learn how to play and as for you, you would like to learn guitar! Hahaha . . . just thought that was a coincidence. Anyway, how was your day? Mine was a typical Wednesday - nothing too special, but I do have a lot of homework. Catch up with you soon! :oP
Posted by straightjackt on Feb 27, 2007 8:57 PM (GMT-04:00)
Chris was sick when he performed @ my first show last March but he did great, too. Hahaha anyway The Format is awesome - you reallly need to listen to them ASAP! Pretty much every song is good - I can't even recommend one but everyone seems to love Dog Problems since it's so different. As far as my second iPod goes, I had to get it because I filled up my first 20gb one and I wanted to get one with video and pictures! :-) Also, the writing was just a contest at my school about America and stuff. I think I will buy myself a guitar - I've been playing for almost a year. I don't have a lot of time to play because of my busy schedule but I try to play at least every day for a half hour. Well - enough about me! Gotta go finish some homework and all that fun stuff!Talk to you soon!
Posted by straightjackt on Feb 26, 2007 8:59 PM (GMT-04:00)
I love Snow Patrol! I bet their show was awesome! I just found out The Format is touring but they're really not coming anywhere near me - everyone seems to be avoiding Pennsylvania! Anyway I haven't been up to much lately. Just keeping myself busy by loading my second iPod and downloading . . . and of course school. I was going to talk to Congress about a program at my school - figures that they cancelled. But the good news is that I won $300 for a writing I did! So I think I may buy myself a new guitar - what do you think?!
Posted by straightjackt on Feb 17, 2007 3:31 PM (GMT-04:00)
Well, the Washington thing got cancelled. I was supposed to talk to the Congress so everyone in my family was so excited for me BUT we got a HUGE snow storm on Tuesday and that made them cancel everything. Luckily, though, that guy gave up on me because I really pounded it in his head that I have a boyfriend that I don't intend to break up with. I know - some guys - well, let's just say that it does take them a while to pick up the hints. Anyway, sounds like you're gonna have a blast this weekend. I don't know what I'm doing yet, right now I just got done eating french toast for breakfast and I'm still in my p.j's <LoL> Talk to you soon! :oP
Posted by straightjackt on Feb 12, 2007 6:13 PM (GMT-04:00)
Weird that I don't remember him. I was hanging out with my friends the whole time and I do remember like, saying hi and stuff but it's not like this guy and I had a long conversation. I'm not going boarding this week because I have to go to Washington which should be fun but who knows. I agree with the But Beautiful thing . . . it's amazing! Anyway have fun and I'll talk to you soon!
Posted by straightjackt on Feb 9, 2007 4:01 AM (GMT-04:00)
I knew I was forgetting something! I heard those stories about the Wii systems too but it's kinda hard to let go of the controller . . . but that's just my opinion. A sensible person would know to hold on to it! Hahahahaha ~ yeah, definitely time for bed! :oP
Posted by straightjackt on Feb 9, 2007 4:00 AM (GMT-04:00)
I just got home from snowboarding. It was a crazzzzzzzzzzzy night - very cold, to say the least. Then this kid who I met on the slopes called me and I didn't even remember him so that was reallllllllly weird. But hey I guess guys aren't afraid to do that kinda stuff nowadays? I told him I have a boyfriend but he said he'll call back tomorrow - as if I'm going to break up with my b/f! <LoL> Anyway for the weekend? I'm probably going to go to my sister's basketball games and out to eat with the family. Sounds like your gonna have fun at that show . . . but I haven't heard of him! :-( So you like the song "But Beautiful"???? I LOOOOOOOVE it! Well have a good weekend if I don't talk to you! Bye, Nancy! Hahaha (Now that we know each others' names!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
Posted by straightjackt on Feb 5, 2007 9:39 PM (GMT-04:00)
You're absolutely right! My name is Kayla! Anyway, the Superbowl was good - Colts won . . . I spent the day at my Pap's because he made lasagna just for me! :-) And then I went to my friends house because he got one of those Wii systems and we bowled, golfed, boxed, and played tennis <LoL> Yeah, I'm going snowboarding this week. HOPEFULLY. Sometimes they call it off if the roads get bad so we'll see. It's really cold here now - we keep having two-hour delays for school which is nice! Alrighty I'll let you go . . . talk to you soon!
Posted by straightjackt on Feb 3, 2007 2:32 AM (GMT-04:00)
Heyyyy well at least you had fun, right?! I know what you mean about the VIP passes and such - but I wouldn't consider myself lucky enough to win something like that. I've only seen Dashboard in arenas - no festivals for me. What was it like meeting Chris, by the way??? Annnnd yeah snowboarding was awesome. This is gonna sound stupid, but at first I kinda forgot what to do. BUT the 2nd run down the slope was clean and I had a great night. Can't wait to go next week! Anyway aren't you glad it's the weekend? It's gonna be Superbowl Sunday so I guess I'm going over to my best friend's house for a little party. Other than that I'm stuck at home doing homework. I have a book report due and I'm reading Catcher in the Rye and I actually like it so it shouldn't be that bad. Talk to you soon!
Posted by straightjackt on Jan 31, 2007 8:40 PM (GMT-04:00)
I finally heard from you!!!!! :-) Sounds like you had an awesome time! Did you get to meet any of the bands or whatever??? If not at least you got to see all the awesome people in one place. If only Dashboard were there, right?! Anyway, I AM DEFINITELY SNOWBOARDING TOMORROW! And I'm really excited, can you tell!!!!!!!????????
Posted by Gretsch123 on Jan 29, 2007 11:03 PM (GMT-04:00)
Hmmm id have to say either stolen or heaven here are the easiest to play, i remember when a mark a mission...came out and bend and not break was the song that really made mike an influence of mine..later!
Posted by straightjackt on Jan 25, 2007 9:02 PM (GMT-04:00)
You're probably jamming out to MCR and Jet right now . . . lucky, lucky! Unfortunately for me, I'm stuck at home because the weather got bad enough that it was unsafe to travel so our trip got canceled. Soooooooo I guess I have to wait one full week to snowboard! :-(
Posted by Gretsch123 on Jan 25, 2007 3:27 AM (GMT-04:00)
haha yeah i have played along with alot of dashboard songs actually vindicated was the first one that i could...cause its easy. thats why i like the new album alot of the ones on there are more up beat and you can drum along. ender will save us all 2. yeah marching percussion is waaay different. ya gotta read music, play multiple rudiments and march in step. its a bitch sometimes but it pays off in the end with technique for the drum set...ttyl
Posted by straightjackt on Jan 24, 2007 8:55 PM (GMT-04:00)
you found my post! :oP well, i just found out that i need something called a 'stomp pad' for my snowboard and now i'm going over to a friends' house to get it waxed. oh so the show isn't until tomorrow? 1 more day of anticipation, right?! I'm so exited for you <lol> have funnnnnnnnnnnnn!!!!!!!!!
Posted by Gretsch123 on Jan 24, 2007 3:06 AM (GMT-04:00)
I have a gretsch 6 piece i bought about 2 years ago now, its amazing..almost like mikes from d/c but now he uses ddrum, ive been drumming for almost 10 years and i also do marching percussion, .....and yea i would have bought a gretsch either way if mike did or didnt have one there amazing! ;x
Posted by straightjackt on Jan 24, 2007 12:47 AM (GMT-04:00)
The Killers- good. My Chemical Romance - great. Jet - my friends' favorite! You're sooooo lucky! Make sure you tell me allllllll about it. Welp, I got my snowboard today. It cost $350 (with everything - boots, bindings, etc.) so I feel really bad that I put such an expensive price tag on something for my parents. It just makes me feel bad. Anyway, about the days getting longer - you didn't know that either?! Because my family acted like I was supposed to know, but I honestly have no clue how it works! I'll post something on the general boards and we'll see if anyone responds to it <LoL> Take care and have fun!
Posted by straightjackt on Jan 21, 2007 12:48 AM (GMT-04:00)
nice to hear from you. well, i did, in fact, go to chilli's today - took my mom and dad and it was very nice. I'm still full! And guess what? I'm going snowboarding this Thursday and I'm so, so excited! Don't you find it kinda funny that I'll be snowboarding and you're swimming! Hahahaha I learned today that the days get longer by one minute. Did you know that? Hahaha. As you can tell, my boredom is getting to me! :oP
Posted by Gretsch123 on Jan 20, 2007 2:19 AM (GMT-04:00)
All he told me was that it was coming out in the winter/spring, no specific date or price or anything but i imagine it would be from Ddrum..ive checked their website and they dont really have any new updates but ill keep looking- what kind of kit do you have?
Posted by straightjackt on Jan 15, 2007 10:01 PM (GMT-04:00)
Welp, my Chili's plans fell through because both my mom and my dad got the flu. Soooooooo I stayed home all weekend - it was very boring, to say the least. How did that present shopping go? I hope it worked out. Hmmmm well I never tried skiing ~ I wanted to but my cousin wanted to try snowboarding instead and that's what I ended up doing. I'm sure I'd like it . . . more control of your feet, ya know? You should try snowboarding, I think you'd like it. But I guess you'd have to go some place cold where they actually have snow <LoL>
Posted by straightjackt on Jan 12, 2007 9:10 PM (GMT-04:00)
I started snowboarding one year ago and completely fell in love with it. Trust me, I could never skateboard either but snowboarding is a lot of fun. It just gives me something for me to do during the winter, you know? For the weekend - tomorrow is my sister's basketball game, then going out to eat with my relatives, then Sunday I'm taking my Dad to Chili's because he's never been there and I figure the least I can do is treat him to lunch or supper. Have a great weekend! Stay out of trouble though!!!! ;-)
Posted by straightjackt on Jan 11, 2007 8:49 PM (GMT-04:00)
Hmmmmm I'm really bored. That was nice of your friend to do that for a charity ~ I'm sure it was a lot of work. The snow died down, it's really sunny right now, actually ~ obviously melting the snow! :-( I think I'm going snowboarding next Thursday! I'm so excited! Tell me about the weekend - I have a lot of plans, so watch it go really fast.
Posted by straightjackt on Jan 9, 2007 9:11 PM (GMT-04:00)
Everyone seems to want to move as far away as possible when it comes to going to college. As for me? Like I said, I'm staying as close to home as possible, because there is a really good school nearby; why move to another state just to get the same program and eventually get the same degree, ya know? The Amazing Race thing sounds really fun. I wish my friends and I could do something like that! Oh and guess what? IT'S FINALLY SNOWING! I'm really happy but really cold. <LoL> Talk to you soooooooon :oP
Posted by straightjackt on Jan 8, 2007 9:08 PM (GMT-04:00)
Yeah we'll see what happens; I'm definitely anxious for my future, that's why I want to get out of HS! I'm a junior now, so one more year until I graduate! I don't think I'm going anywhere far for college because I'm pretty much a big homebody, but who knows?! I may change my mind tomorrow. Anyway I hate to admit but I love reality shows. I end up watching all of them - and yes, Amazing Race would be really cool. That'd be a cool way to travel around the world, but I'd rather take my time and explore each place, ya know? Seems like they are only in a certain place for a minute and then they are driving somewhere else. Hahahaha.
Posted by straightjackt on Jan 6, 2007 2:46 PM (GMT-04:00)
Wow journalism and music really go together. That's a definite plus for me, but I guess I'll have to wait and see what I'm good enough to get into!? By the way, yes, Survivor is still an awesome show, even after all these years. I think a lot of people tired out on it, but it's a ritual that my Dad and I watch it every Thursday night. I'm glad you like it, too . . . one more thing we have in common <LoL>
Posted by straightjackt on Jan 5, 2007 10:04 PM (GMT-04:00)
I'm DEFINITELY going into journalism when I get into college. I'm writing for the local newspaper right now, so that's helping me out. I want to do something with music as well, just like you. So maybe I can write songs?! <LoL> Anway I'm so happy it's the weekend. Any plans?
Posted by straightjackt on Jan 3, 2007 11:00 PM (GMT-04:00)
Where do you work? As for me, I don't have a job - as of now. I write for my local newspaper so that's a responsiblity that takes up most of my time anyway. Back to work next week, huh? School is terrible - I can't wait to graduate! Unfortunately, I didn't get to see Dashboard on their latest tour - just the summer one. So I've only been to 2 concerts. And you?
Posted by straightjackt on Jan 1, 2007 3:46 PM (GMT-04:00)
I would love to visit! Maybe someday! Yeah, I guess it's that cliche type thing where people just picture the outback animals and associate it with the whole continent of Australia. Anyway New Year's was good . . . can't believe it's 2007 though! I go back to school Wednesday. What a bummer!
Posted by straightjackt on Dec 31, 2006 5:04 AM (GMT-04:00)
Sounds like you're in for a good time. Around here? Just parties and stuff like that. To me, it's kind of boring. I just sit around with my family and we stare at each other. Okay, I'm only kidding. This year we're just eating a big dinner and inviting 1/2 of my relatives over. It should be a good time; I enjoy spending time with my family. Australia seems really awesome though . . . I'd love to visit someday! I remember when I was little, (sorry if I'm rambling now) my cousins and I would talk about of all the places in the world to visit, we wanted to go to Australia because of the kangaroos and everything else that we heard about. Anyway, have a great New Year's in case I don't talk to you! ;-)
Posted by straightjackt on Dec 30, 2006 4:03 PM (GMT-04:00)
Four hours?! I'm so used to snow; been around it my whole life. It's weird this year (so far) because we haven't had any except for that one night I was telling you about. Anyway, I am totally excited for New Year's. I'm not doing anything special - family is coming over and that's about it. What about you ~ do you have any plans?
Posted by straightjackt on Dec 27, 2006 5:57 PM (GMT-04:00)
It finally snowed last night. All my cousins and I had a snowball fight. That was the first time it snowed all November-December so I was excited! :oP
Posted by straightjackt on Dec 21, 2006 9:38 PM (GMT-04:00)

LOL I have 3 hidden songs they are acoustics but they are all the ones from the new cd. I was wondering if there was a different one. A new song or something, not the acoustic versions. But thanks a lot for replying even if it was late ;)
