Help I'm Alive

This song, is my jam right now, I listen at least once a day. Seriously, Canada's Indie scene kicks ass, between Tegan and Sara, Metric (Title band) and Jay Baruchel, I'm about to pack up all my things and just get a place in Ontario.

Oh Jay... Jay, Jay, Jay, Jay, Jay... the things I would do.

Anywho, Canada, becoming more and more awesome in my book. But my first order of business, so I decided I needed to be more loyal to my followers (read: I've been sucking hard core lately) so I went through and unfollowed people who didn't follow me... if by chance I accidently stopped following you, or you didn't show up as a public follower PLEASE let me know in the comments, I want to make sure I comment on all your posts if you read through my posts.

So much has happened since my last post. First off I saw Muse, and let me just reiterate that they are so badass, just amazingly badass. The concert was great although, Kaitlyn and I got hit on by a few too many creepers. I don't know if I just have low self esteem (probably) but I really don't "get it" when guys hit on me. I'm not saying I think I'm ugly, but I don't see myself as like some hot girl all the guys want to get with. Other than the guys and the hitting on though the concert was amazing, one of those shows that just overloads all your senses and makes you so... awed.

The rest of the week flew by, between work and classes before I knew it it was St. Patrick's day. I skipped all my classes (Like a boss) and spent the morning helping out my friend Allyssa and her shifty back (herniated disc OUCH!) get around campus. Then my mom came up and took me to the mall... WIN! I got a green pair of Converse, a new jacket, zip up hoodie, and shirt, then I bought some new earrings for my cartilage piercing (all in all a very good day at the mall). After the mall we got on the road to go meet Maria's mom for the Bon Jovi concert. Maria and got our mom's tickets for Christmas, and the show was awesome, albeit long. I was pretty pumped because Dashboard Confessional was the opening band. We were all so exhausted when we got home, but our moms both loved it so SUCCESS!

Since then I've been trying to catch up on sleep and homework. My friend had a wine and cheese party tonight that was just the right combo of chill/fun. We watched the basketball game, played drunken Monopoly and then Taboo (which I've discovered I'm good at). Best question/answer:

Matt: "Ummmm this is something that people watch at night in bed"
Mark and Me: "Porn" (awkward silence) "Not us though... just people...."

I just love it when I have a night that makes me laugh, I go to bed so happy! Tomorrow I think I'm going on a little bike adventure with a few friends and then going to meet JenRem for dinner. HOLLA! Blogger meet-ups! We've been planning it forever and both have been busy so fingers crossed this works out!

I have a solid week of homework ahead of me and then get ready for it... Tegan and Sara next Saturday!!!!!! That totally warranted that many exclamation points, I am so stoked, beyond stoked. I hope all of you had a great St. Paddy's day, what did you all do??

This comic is so me haha. Also a side-note, soon I will get around to posting pictures of all my March shenanigans on Facebook, so if we're friends watch for it, if we're not friends, friend me... right now! What're you waiting for?!

I couldn't get 100% behind "Help I'm Alive" (don't take that as hating, I got like 83% behind it) but their newest single, something about Gold, Girls and Guns is awesome.

I love that you skipped all your classes (like a boss).

And now I know why you popped up in a new position among my followers.

I'm only getting to know T&S through you, but I will give it to you that they deserve that many exclamation marks. How many will they get when combined with Paramore?

Taboo is an awesome game. Mad Gabs is sort of similar and can cause just as many laughs.

Lastly, comic is great as usual.

"Hey, sup?" haha

Thank you for being the only other person I have ever found to like Jay as much as I do - everyone thinks I'm sicknasty because I get all 15-year-old when I see him! Sooooo hottttttt!

Jeanette said...

@Mr. O: Oh goodness, well as long as you like at least one Metric song. I feel that if you're gonna skip lost you gotta do it like a boss.

Yeah, I was just doing some blog spring cleaning haha, as you know though now I won't get to give that many exclamation points grrrr.

Yeah both are great games, that's what sup.

@k: No problem, Jay is soooo hot, between him, Joseph Gordon Levitt, Matthew Gary Gubler, and John Francis Daly I can't get enough!

LIKE A BOSS. I always hear how absolutely amazing MUSE is live. Lucky you! It's going down on my list of things to do in my lifetime.

Liz said...

I love the Canadian Indie scene. Help, I'm Alive is probably my favorite Metric song. There is a really good acoustic version too. Other great Canadian indie bands are Broken Social Scene and Stars. If you've never listened, definitely suggest them!

Jeanette said...

@Brent: Yeah you're missing out. But maybe first on your list you should put "Get electirc drill"

@Liz: I've heard of Stars, and I'm pretty sure somewhere along the way I inherited a Broken Social Scene cd... I'll have to search for it.

Allison said...

I've never been a big fan of Metric - but I really liked the acoustic/piano version they did of that song during the Haiti telethon. I was able to find an acoustic version somehow and I love it.

Jeanette said...

@Allison: The acoustic version is so bad ass!

Allison said...

Someone has been spamming your

@Allison: Yeah I know... it's super annoying... but I don't really want to put up the word verification on all the posts... we'll see if it gets worse :(
