A Picture Worth A Thousand Words

A monumental event in my life took place last Tuesday.

Andrew McMahon

Most of you that have been around a while know about my obsession with all things Andrew and Jack's Mannequin and Something Corporate. These were the first songs I really truly fell in love with, and they've continued to change me in different ways as I've grown up. Last Tuesday, I made an impromptu 2.5-hour trip to Charlotte, NC. I was exhausted from driving and class all day, and until about two hours before, hadn't even been sure I was going to go. I missed the openers, but as soon as I walked into the theater, the energy and the sound of the songs I love made it so so obvious that there was nowhere else I'd rather have been. AND THEN I MET HIM, HOLY CRAPPPP. It was one of those real short 2-minute meetings, but after 9 years of listening to his music, 6 concerts, a set list, and an embarrassing amount of merchandise, it was perfect. It's strange to have a picture mean so much, because it was only moments. I shook the whole drive home, but I can honestly say, it's been a long time since I've been so happy about something.
