i don't know why, but for some reason i haven't been coming to GS much lately. it's not that i'm busy (in fact, i am the opposite of busy), i guess i just get bored of the internet quicker than i used to. i don't know. i started browsing reddit (i don't really post or do upvotes/downvotes, i just like to look at the pictures). it's a pretty cool site. i like it.
i've also acquired a girlfriend. i started talking to her several months ago, and we've been together for only about a month now. she's kind of crazy sometimes, but i like her a lot. sometimes it doesn't feel like it's worth it though. she'll get upset for stupid things. but it's whatever.
tonight i went to see Mastodon and Opeth, and also a band called Ghost played. i went with my cousin and her boyfriend's daughter, plus the daughter's boyfriend. my cousin's boyfriend is brothers with one of the guys in Mastodon, so we got to go backstage and i got to meet them. i didn't even know Opeth was going to be there until i saw the ticket receipt, which really got me excited, because i LOVE Opeth! i high fived them after they got done playing, and when Mastodon was playing, i was standing on the stage right behind them. and for a little while, i was standing right next to Mikael Akerfeldt (singer+guitar) and Martin Axenrot (drummer)!! i really wanted to talk to them, but the music was loud and it would have been hard.
but at the end of Mastodon's set, everyone that was standing at the back of the stage watching went to the front of the stage. so i was on stage with Mastodon, Opeth, and Ghost! i high fived all of them, it was awesome. after the show was over, my cousin took a picture of me with Troy Sanders of Mastodon (he is her boyfriend's brother)
