This is Burger.
He is my badass pet turtle. I actually call him “Burgie”. I have had him for about a year. I love him.
lol It looks like a “I see what you did there” face xD He’s a cutie
Aww! I forgot about this post! Sadly Burgie got out of the house about a year ago and I wondered away. I like to think he found a safe place to live out his days. Miss this little guy!!! </3
After a very intense afternoon of storms here in Oklahoma this is how the day is ending. So breathtakingly beautiful. As much as I bitch about living here, I sure am glad to have a view like this from my deck sometimes.
Last night was probably one of the best nights of my life. I can’t even properly express my feels right now. I have seen The Academy Is… live a million times it feels like and have met William once before last night but nothing compares to last night. It was the first time seeing him after the break up. So I was a little emotional. I didn’t MEAN to be, but come on… the break up shattered my little heart. They were one of my favorite bands. #2 in the top 5! So I legit walked up to him and was all “Real talk, thank you for always making such amazing music. Whether it was with the band or solo. You inspire me so much.” and then went ON to say “I was so heart broken when TAI broke up. I was just confused and sad.” Suddenly he got this look of concern on his face and started explaining WHY they broke up and was try to reassure me that it was for the best and wanted to make sure I was okay with it. ME! He was sweet enough to care about my feels! He just kept saying “I just want you to understand that it was time.”
It made me feel so much better about it and has now allowed me to accept him as William Beckett the solo artist, a thing I was having a really hard time doing. I needed to see him fly solo and do this thang to really be able to understand and accept it.
His music is amazing. He puts his soul into every word. For a little bit I forgot that there were only like… 20 people standing around me (it was a REALLY small show!) and got lost in the music. He talked to us through out the entire set BECAUSE the size of the crowd was so small. It was perfect.
I am so happy to be able to share the experience with one of my favorite people, Lela. The Academy Is… is the reason she and I became friends. Because of us being in the same class at Meridian, and our teacher making us play a game to get to know the other classmates, we would probably never come out of our shells enough TO find out about our mutual interests.
Anyways, the night was amazing, and I am still buzzing on it. Not enough to give me the munchies though! (hahahahaha Leeeeeeeeeeeeeeela!!!)
I can not believe how big Dixie has gotten. I have had her about 6 months and they have been the best 6 months ever! I love this little brat so much!
Going to curl up with a book for a little while and then try to go to bed early.
It’s funny that I consider any time before 3am to be early. haha. But I had a really productive day. My muscles are unbelievably tired. Goodnight world.
Library book sale was a SUCCESS! 15 books and didn’t go over 15 dollars! The most I spent on one book was $4.99 and that was for Sweet Little Lies at Half Price Books. We obviously didn’t get enough books at the sale and HAD to stop. Oh the life of a book addict. But all of the paper backs were 50 cents and the one hardback was $1.00! And people wonder why I call that annual book sale “Bookmas” hahaha.
