I've never felt so alive...

So the past two nights have been rather fun, albeit slightly expensive.
The conversations were good along with so much else... Meanwhile, thank you precious few who have been keeping me entertained during my really bad lectures through AIM. I've used 2,500 text messages since my billing period started, and so... well, you know who you are.

Apparently, I'm someone who can be liked. Sometimes, I find it difficult to recognize that there are a hell of a lot of people who call themselves my friends, and it's really quite warming to have the group of people that I do talking to me, asking me how my day has been, asking me out to do stuff and just, all of that. It sounds simple, and it really is, but it's so often overlooked, and I'm feeling... really good right now, so I thought I'd just bring that up.

"I've never been so alone, and I've... I've never been so alive..."

Earlier this week, I went to what I'm rather confident was the best concert I've ever been to. It's no big surprise that my favorite band is Incubus, but there was just something magical about getting pit tickets at the last possible moment, making to AWA and just... taking in every moment of their performance.

Highlights of that evening were:
Certain Shade of Green, wherein the lights went to green and yellow and the hardcore thrashing started... there was also a wicked DJ solo by Chris.
Here In My Room had Mike on piano with guitar in his lap, and Brandon on guitar playing the basics. Then, they flowed straight into a remix of Drive with Mike still on piano which just blew me away.
Vitamin was incredible... it included a 10 minute drum solo, wherein Ben (their bassist) got on a bass-snare-hat mini set and started jamming out with Brandon on djembe and Jose on drums. What followed was this brilliant, hardcore percussion ensemble that just aboslutely rocked, followed by a full solo by Jose. *SO* awesome.

There was just something amazing about that feeling I got... Standing there, head thrashing, screaming my lungs out to Nice to Know You and Wish You Were Here... Such beautiful music; in that moment, I swear I felt infinite, to quote a particular book I like...

All in all, it's been great so far. I can't wait to see what'll happen next, but I've been loving most every minute of my life for the past... long while. Embrace these moments; it's all you can do.
