I’m considering this my first official show and I’m going to blow it outta the wattaah! Once the bands are be booked I can do what I do best. My life would be so much easier if I were putting on a hardcore/screamo show..since that is ALL that I am running into.. BUT I need to bring some pop-punk fun to Enfield, CT!!
The bands are slim pickings for locals but I hope I get my pickings. I’m actually going out on a limb with 2 of them because I know nothing of their stage presence. My entire show is going to SOUND AND LOOK GOOD. I want people to enjoy the band playing even if they have no clue who they are.
Sick of being disrespected at my age for no reason. I’m almost 23. At this point, we should all be acting like fucking adults in someway or another.
I don’t know why I felt the need to explain myself. People don’t get straight edge. I was obviously the adult in the situation. Never speaking to that waste of space again. I told myself anyone who tries to tell me what straight edge is.. we’re done. I’ve been living this for 10 years and drug free all my life. Just stop.
I always assume people are threatened. It’s something they don’t understand. All their friends drink. Then I remind myself of this straight edge community I’m in. The support and kindness that I can connect to. I also wonder if that kid would’ve questioned CM Punk.. or something.. like.. he’ll kick your ass. BUT because I’m a small girl.. I’m an easy target.
You can’t get past ignorance when people don’t actually want to learn.
