Last night was amazing. 3 out of five recognized me. I got a signed tshirt a Polaroid to hang out the greatest band ever and so much more. Im definitely going to meet them again and this time maybe theyll all remember me :)
Meeting Anberlin for the second time tonight and I’m so excited. I hope they remember me :3. I also hope I’m less awkward this time and I don’t suck at bags tonight but that might be too much to ask for. Either way it is going to be a great night.
After seeing them live, I feel like I better understand Anberlin’s music.
I’m not trying to be all corny, or anything, but seriously, after listening to Stephen talk about all of these songs, and just seeing his energy on stage and how nice he was even on stage, it just blew me away.
I’m going to sit and listen to their discography all the way through. It’s like a whole new feel to what the music has to offer now, I can’t really explain it. But it’s good, and I’m going to enjoy it.
seeing them for the third time tonight. so excited
I don’t feel the need to justify why I got this tattoo because I know what it means for me, and that’s the important thing. But I do kind of want to explain and get it all out there. This is a lyric from The Unwinding Cable Car by Anberlin. When I went to their Seattle concert with Trenton, Haley, and Alex, Stephen Christian knew who we were and where we were in the crowd. During this song, he pointed and looked me in the eye while singing “You’re so brilliant, don’t soon forget.” Now, I don’t have a lot of confidence. I mean, I know I’m not hideous, but I’m not the most stunning girl in the room. I don’t have any special talents or anything like that, but I am smart. So I embraced that, because I don’t have much else to set me apart. The last two years these college classes have been terribly hard for me, because I failed some classes and was surrounded by people that passed with ease. I felt inadequate because I was terrible at the one thing I thought I could do. My cousin tried to help me with math and kept telling me I’m brilliant, but I never believed it. Then Stephen Christian sang that line, and it was one of the few perfect moments, listening to a beautiful song in my favorite city with that small group of people I love the most. Also, the placement on my arm is important. I don’t know if you can see why in this picture. The reason I have it in the middle of my forearm is because I didn’t want to look at my wrist and the area near the inside of my elbow for the rest of my life only to see ugly, faded scars. Now, when I look down, I see something beautiful in the midst of all that pain. And the pain is fading and the beauty is noticable. I am brilliant, and I won’t soon forget.
