Just Normal People

As I climb into adulthood, I understand more and more where I stand in the industry. And as I get older, I start to understand more about stardom and what “being famous” really means.

Being famous means that you are somehow or someway famous people are associated with social media or media. And EVERYONE seems to know about EVERYTHING about your business. Whether you like it or not.

Sometimes you are famous because you are ACTUALLY good at something… other times you are not.

Either way, I read Anna Kendrick’s book about her upbringing and her world of “being famous”.  She puts in best by saying:

“I still had a tar stain in the middle of my living room floor while I was on tour promoting Up in the Air.”

… You have to read the book as to why she has a tar stain in the middle of the floor but the point is, even though she was already a household name, she still didn’t have a lot of money or ties to her name yet. And I believe she was nominated for an award for that movie.

It’s a hard lesson to learn but you have to stop comparing yourself to other people. It always looks like someone is doing better than you but the truth is, we all have a tar stain in the middle of the floor.


“All Hail The Heartbreaker”

I went to another show, yes, another show that I wasn’t working! How Fabulous!
There are still a handful of bands that I have yet to see or really want to see. Either I miss their show or just missed opportunities for shows.

One of my favorite “emo” bands is The Spill Canvas. For as long as I can remember being emo in middle school, I would listen to this band on repeat.

It was a little bit of nostalgia for me because I never saw them live before. I thought I did with Fall Out Boy a long time ago, but I’m going to say probably not.

If you don’t’ know who they are, you should check them out. Especially if you do like bands such as New Found Glory and Simple Plan. These guys are part of that era and part of a huge part of my growing up.

If you get the chance to see them, they are on tour now and tickets are priced about $12/15 dollars.

Below is a song that will forever be a classic in my heart.
