This isn’t what I want to talk about the most, but if I write it later, I fear you might lose interest and I’d like some imput on this. As Michael Smith and I drove back to school to close a splendid evening(which you’ll hear about if you read on.) and part of the topic of discussion was physical communication, specifically the greeting and farewelling kind. And even more specifically, the hugging, hand kissing and cheek kissing kind. And I would like to know your(that means everyone) on how you feel about hugging, hand kissing, and cheek kissing. My concern is the perception of others as flirting(I’m refering to the hugging, hand kissing and cheek kissing of the opposite sex.). It seems just talking and looking at members of the opposite sex can be perceived as flirting, as I’m sure you all can attest to. But I’d like to be free to greet others with a kiss, and have no worries about it. So if I greeted more of you with hugs and hand kisses and kisses on the cheeks, would that bother you? If we all work together, we can make America like Europe!
On a similar note, I think it’s cool when friends hold arms, maybe hands, but that is a little more intimate. Would it be possible to hold the arm of a female friend as just a friend?
Ok, now to the joy of Friday night. Well, it was exactly that. A great joy. I lived again! Oh how wonderful it was. I really can’t put it in to words, so I will give you a discription of the night.
It was a battle of the bands and the band Adoniram(whom got me in free, how good it feels to be friends with a band to get in free again. Thanks Angie for allowing me to pass go for free.) was the main band I went to see. They did a great job indeed. There was also a punk band that entertained me. They just had fun up there, one really needed to see it to get it. And another band whose name I forgot, were juniors in high-school and they were quite the accomplished hard-core-ers. They have a future in hard-core music. And the band that won, Mending Chaos was fantastic. They had a keyboardist who was totally cool. I have a picture of him totally jumping above the keyboard while playing. Come visit me in my room some time to see them. I’d show people my pictures if he/she would ask; I’m not one to take the incentive on showing off. Back to Mending Chaos, they were good. Very good. I hope they get famous. Well after the show, we fellowshiped, and how superb it was. Back home, I have many friends in bands, but I usually seclude myself to only friends I know. But this night, three bands whom have never meet, all went to Steakn’Shake and fellowshiped. They set up shows, talked about shows, complimented eachother until they couldn’t anymore. I took pictures of people I knew(which is great, cause I hardly have pictures of anyone here), and people I hardly knew, but it was like I knew everyone. Everyone was cool with everyone, like we were one big family or something. I’ve never done that because I like to be comfortable, so I don’t usually talk to people I don’t know. But this night, it was alright. And the ride home was accompanied by Unwed Sailor. They are amazing to the greatest extent. I lived Friday night. I love living. Thanks to and for all those whom I lived with and assisted my living. The only thing getting me down is knowing my friends from home aren’t coming tomorrow for the autoshow, nor will they be able to for a while. That is sad, very sad. I’ve got to stop thinking about that. ‘Cause right now I’m living!
