this has been the longest weekend of my life.
and i loved every minute of it.
i was up friday night doing homework. i think i stayed up till 2:30. i got up on saturday to begin the weekend of greatness at like 10. completely didn't finish my homework and instead packed and cleaned a little and basically tried to contain myself till it was time to leave. fast forward through the drive to tuscaloosa and then the hour or so the boys played nintendo, we went to travis' house and played guitar hero. and went to mellow mushroom. bonked people on campus. got stalked by some random guy. came back to travis' and played spoons. then we went to my house and did homework (haha) and sang christmas carols (because its christmas time!) and stayed up till about 4.
sunday was the MOST AMAZING DAY EVER. i got up at 8:30 to get ready for sunday school. from sunday school we went to the BEST CONCERT I'VE EVER BEEN TO IN MY LIFE. nathan drove all the way to mobile and we were there a couple hours before the doors opened. so we walked around downtown mobile and found a place to eat. (i didnt eat. the boys ate). then we decided to go park...and after we got out of the car and started to walk towards the ticket office, jon schneck walked out of the bus and came out to hang in the parking lot so OF COURSE we had to take pictures with him. i walk up and im like "heyy i read your blog." wow im a nerd.
i met kristi and we got our tickets. kristi is an incredible concert partner! it was more than that. the show was amazing. it was just soo good that i can't even find words to describe it. matthew thiessen is amazing. (i need a new adjective). but seriously. he sang a christmas song...in october :) and they made it snow on us! i dont know how to describe it. i just cant find the words.
and switchfoot was good, too. the way that they went into their songs (except for the weird thing at the beginning) was awesome...i didn't understand jon's dance moves. i think i was expecting something different so it was almost like i was disappointed...but i wasnt. because it was good. i guess it was more serious than i expected. i guess thats it. haha. i liked it anyway :)
then afterwards...we had to stand by the little gate that separated us from the tour buses. at the beginning, right after the show, there were a ton of people there. different members of switchfoot came by and we got autographs and pictures so that was fun. we kept waiting for relient k to come out (and i was like maaaatty pleeease come out) and finally john warne came out. followed by jon schneck again. and then MY MATTY. I GOT TO MEET MATTHEW THIESSEN. again, words cannot even describe how amazing he is...and how incredibly dumb i am. i kept going "he's right there. RIGHT THERE. he is RIGHT. THERE." then he got to me and i was like "hiiiiii i'm dianna and you are my HERO." i spent all 3 hours it took for him to get there rehearsing what i was going to say. then he was there and i forgot it all. this defines my life. single most amazing experience ever. he was followed by dave and finallyy hoopes came out because dave made him haha. so i met all of switchfoot and all of relient k.
THEEEE best night OF my life.
then we go to leave, its midnight or so. we get on this road looking for food and instead go into the middle of nowhere, having to make a big circle to get back on I-65. which made it take forever to get back home. ella drove to just south of montgomery and i took over there, at 3:30. everyone was sleepin but me, it was kinda odd to be the only one awake. nathan talks in his sleep and it kinda freaked me out a little. haha. we got home a little after 5:30; so we just kinda hung around my house for a little bit and got our stuff together and went back out on the road for the however long it takes to get back to msu. i didn't think we were gonna make it, to be honest.
then i had class from 9 to 11, and i intended on taking my lunch break and taking a nap and then studying, but i got sucked into facebook and instead uploaded fifty gazillion pictures. i was almost late because i lost track of time. then i went to class at 1, skipped math at 2, and came back to my dorm. i slept from 2:30 to 5:30 and then i went to class at 6. fun fun.
now im wide awake again.
but this was theeee best weekend ever. I MET MATTHEW THIESSEN. and he is amazing. possibly the most amazing person i've ever met. i just cannot say this fact enough. I MET MATTHEW THIESSEN. :)
