I can't even begin to write about my summer, so I guess I should start at the beginning. I moved out of my mom's house back in April, out of the suburbs and back into Vancouver. Since then I've been waiting tables at a sushi restaurant that lets me book shows there sometimes. My band played Shout Back festival at the end of August. It's a 4 day long DIY festival held in Vancouver, filled with sick feminist bands!

Boy do I ever look moody today, I've been waiting for people to get up for almost 3 hrs now. I'm going to see a few different bands tonight. I have to make the most of my Saturday because I was sick yetserday. So I started working on a song and made a new blog post and now I'm basically chain smoking waiting for the day to begin.
button up shirt - h&m, vest - DIY, sweater - h&m, jeans - from paige, creepers - demonia, twin peaks patch - gift from jody
About 2 months ago my friend Christa approached me about putting an event on at this new venue she's helping out with, of course I said yes because hello that would be so much fun. We got into talking and figured it should have something to do with girl-guts and how our focus is shifting more on local and music things, plus we decided for Valentine's Day and GG just suits the mood so well.
I kinda blurted on the phone while we were talking that I wanted my band to play, what I neglected to mention was I didn't actually have a band.
So I got together some friends and practiced a lot and we did our very first show earlier this month!

Yay I finally have photoshop on my new laptop, I haven't been able to use it since September, thus the lack in quality posts lately.
I've kept sorta not really busy in the past month or so. Christmas and New Years were fun, I had the flu for a big part of it though which was a bummer but didn't stop me from going out too many nights! Next month I'm putting together a show on the day after Valentine's day, I'm very excited and scared! So much planning that I didn't really expect, but I like it. I like having projects to focus on, it's just the part of following through that I get hung up on, oops.
So I'm putting together my own band for the show because why not? The B-52's played their very first show on Valentine's day and they're my favourite band, I've envisioned myself playing my first show on Valentine's day as well, it works out nicely this way! Also the show is going to be a fundraiser for a girl-guts zine!!! aaahhhhh!!!
Anyway, I wore this to band practice last night and since no one saw me but Alex, I wore this again today. Outfit repeater, everyone's guilty.
sweater - forever 21, shirt and shorts - thrifted, tights so old i can't remember, tie - gift
I made a really cool playlist that everyone should check out, you know if you're into good music that is.
As well as a pretty cool outfit on polyvore, see I'm totally doing stuff. No, I'm making things on the internet so I don't have to stress about the show that's in less than a month!
