Since the last post life has been fabulously great. I have no complaints. Saturday morning I went and took that practice GRE, didn't do as well as I'd hoped... but hey, what is practice for? After the GRE I was 100% team serious study time. Other than the shopping break my roommate and I took.... a girl needs a break, you know what I'm saying? So I studied all day made some pretty awesome note sheets if I do say so myself, real high quality stuff.

Sunday I woke up got ready and headed to my friend Cara's so we could head to the D for the Paramore concert. OUR PLAN was to get to the concert early and wait and get right up front as it was Cara's first concert. However, this plan was foiled when we got there at noon and there was already a line, instead we drove around the ghetto of Detroit until we found our way out. We ended up hanging out at target for a while and then going to see a movie.

I wanted to see Zombieland, Cara refused, we saw Couples Retreat, it was not funny-->I was sad. I was pretty disappointed in it because I love Jason Bateman and Kristen Bell. It had so much promise, but I feel like all the semi funny parts were in the previews, AND I still need to see Zombieland! Anyways, then we went to Applebee's (which was oddly mentioned a lot in the movie) and I had the triple chocolate meltdown. MMMMMM. Then we headed to the concert.

We ended up getting an alright position and the concert was AMAZING as always, don't belive me? Boom goes the dynamite, watch that right there.

So concert was great, even if it was my 7th Paramore concert. We made it out of downtown Detroit pretty fast and I was back to my place by midnight. Didn't end up going to bed until around 2 a.m. even though I had two tests on Monday. You'll be happy to know that I had my way with both tests, yeah, I'm that good. So all in all it was a great weekend.

The title song is the first single off Tegan and Sara's new album "Sainthood" and it has been my jam lately so you're gonna want to go ahead and click on that title. OH! Speaking of Tegan and Sara... I may or may not be FINALLY seeing them March 27th... and by may or may not be I mean I totally am!!!!! Anyone who knows me knows that this is about the one band I really, really want to see and haven't seen. They are definitely in my top three and they are rarely on tour around here, but my luck has done me good and I couldn't be more excited!

So that is my weekend in a nutshell! Everyone watch that video and then listen to the title song. That is your homework alright? Good.

man, she has so much energy. I can't wait to rock out to that damn band. I don't know the drummer's name off hand, but add him to my list of man crushes (I don't even know what he looks like, but he just kills it)

I listened to the Tegan and Sara song and I have to say that I really enjoyed it. Expect me to rock that shit.

Two things: the applebees thing was ironic and as far as the GRE, practice makes perfect!

So nice to see you Jeanette! Ugh, your video won't work on the computer I am on. Stupid work for coming in between my life in blogs. Arghh. I'll just have to come back here later. And you NEED to see Zombieland. And I'm glad you had your way with those tests!

I'm so not looking forward to taking the GRE. So much so that I almost went to school overseas where it's not required. Hope the practice one really helped.

____j said...

Thanks for the video. I love, love, lovvvvvve Paramore :) Wish we would have gotten that close to her when we went.

Jeanette said...

@Mr.O: Yeah I wish I had that much energy. The drummer is Zac Farro, brother of guitarist Josh Farro. And it's amazing that he is like 18, so it is an acceptable man crush. I'm glad you like the T&S song. Haha hopefully practice will make perfect.

@Lola Lakely: Don't they know you need a break from work! haha I'm going to work on seeing Zombieland this weekend... after I see Where the Wild Things are.

@Kevin: When are you taking the GRE. The practice was semi-helpful haha I guess we'll see.

@____j: That's pretty much the furthest from the stage I've ever been... but still great.

i'd be sooooo jealous if you saw tegan and sara!!! take lots of footage :)

Kris said...

That stinks about Couples Retreat. It was originally Rated R so I bet the studio shot themselves in the foot!

I really want to see Zombieland. Shawn of the Dead is one of my favorite movies so this one is right up my alley. I hope it's good!

Jeanette said...

@Krystal: I know we discussed this... but I think I'll be more jealous about your move to Sweden..

@Kris: If you see it before me... let me know.
