"and all the minutes in the world could never take your place" [29 Jul 2006|02:01am]
[ mood | contemplative ]

Words have been such a struggle for me lately. I feel like everything I say comes out wrong, but on long summer nights like tonight, I remember how much I miss writing and how comforting it can be. For some reason it seemed weird to be pouring out some of my most personal thoughts and problems on the internet with a bunch of strangers reading them. But now with my state of mind, it seems fitting, like maybe someone out there somewhere might realize that someone else is struggling with the same thing.It has been more than 6 months since I have written. The whole spring semester and more than half of the summer have gone by. I can't help but wonder am I the same? Have I changed? If I have changed is it good or bad? Life is always full of questions, but if we keep looking for the answers maybe that takes away from who we are trying to be.I hope everyone's life is amazing and for those who are going through bad times, I'm crossing my fingers that they get better soon.

I think everyone has a summer when they just embrace life and who they are. I think this year has been all about that for me. I can feel that I have grown, that my perspective has changed but all for the better. I got my motivation and goals back. I brought my GPA back up. I got closure I needed with a certain boy.I have gone to so many great shows this year. I got a new job which I love.I love my friends. I have the greatest friends in the world and they know who they are.

It hasn't been all good. Not having a car for four months was Hell. I am pretty sure my love life will always suck. My Mom and I have had more than a few disagreements.Money is something that no one will have enough of. But over all the good outweighs the bad and I am trying to think positively.

My Grandfather passed away last week. My Mom called me and I didn't know what to say or do.Thank God that Gen was there with a hug and the right things to say. It just makes me so sad to know that I will never hear his voice again, that I will never get another hug from him or hear him crack one of his jokes. He was the one of the few guys that was always in my life after my Dad died. But I know that he was getting sick and sometimes living life is just hard to do. I know that he is in a better place now, it's just hard for those of us here to understand that concept.We flew up to St. Louis for the funeral and it just seemed so numbing. It was a hard trip, we had to say goodbye to my grandfather then we visited my Dad's and Grandmother's graves. Sometimes it sucks being surrounded in a place so full of memories but at the same time it makes it easier to cope.I just wish that I could make it easier for my Mom, this is so hard for her.But death is never an easy thing, but it makes us step back and realize just how important life is.

My 21st birthday is coming up, it's August 27th!! So in less than a month I will be LEGAL. We are all growing up it feels as if someone turned an hour glass upside down to go superfast and all we can do is try to grasp it before it slips away. Family Force 5 is playing a show in Tally the night before so I think I might just get a bunch of friends together at the show and celebrate there. I am not sure about actually having a dinner or something, I really wanted to plan something big because it's my 21st. But last year I planned a dinner and only a handful of people which made my birthday bittersweet, but those people that were there made it real special and I wouldn't trade it in for anything in the world. <3

There are rumors floating around of a Hanson tour in October/November and it makes me beyond excited.I also highly recommend buying The Wreckers new album "Stand Still, Look Pretty" and an somewhat old favorite band of mine, The Rocket Summer! Also,in an upcoming entry, I will post lots of pictures from mine and Gen's road trip,recent concerts, and other fun random stuff. :)

I will leave this entry with lyrics to a song that I love, it seems quite fitting and it actually makes me think. mad props go out to anyone who knows it...

Lately when we talk it’s been a struggle
Why should I defend the way that I have come to view life?
Well I don’t need it all explained and you can’t know what’s happening
If you’re too busy worrying about everybody else

Well I don’t wanna know
Cause I believe in everything
I’m so tired of listening to everybody else
Yeah well can't you let it go
You don’t control anything
So what’s the point of arguing?
If nothings ever right
Yeah well I don’t wanna know

Why concern yourself with information
That provides an explanation
For your problems if they still don’t go away
Yeah well you mite be prepared for this
You’re too scared that you might miss out on all your fun
To find there’s other ways to live

Well I don’t wanna know
Coz I believe in everything
I’m so tired of listening to everybody else
Yeah well cant you let it go
You can’t control everything
So what’s the point of arguing?
If nothings ever right
Yeah well I don’t wanna know

Did you really think that you could change a thing?
Where you found a place for all that’s happening
Then you hear the words and they all make sense to you
Then you keep the ones that make your story true
Well I don’t wanna be the one
Who occupies your attention while u run and hide from what it is that troubles you
Yeah well thank u for everything
Thanks the most for not bothering me anymore
You can argue with yourself

Coz I don’t wanna know
And I believe everything
I’m so tired of listening to everybody else
Yeah well cant you let it go
You can’t control everything
So what’s the point of arguing?
If nothings ever right
Yeah well I don’t wanna know
No I don’t need to know
I don’t care if I ever know
I don’t need to know

Lately when we talk it’s been a struggle

"and as the tears stream down your face..." [08 Feb 2006|01:29am]
[ mood | sad ]

you know that feeling when you just want to leave and run away, get away from everything, because you don't feel like you can face it anymore. that is how I feel right now. maybe it's this place, the so-called "sunshine state" where it rains every day and it's gray and overcast. I just want to leave, sometimes I think there is nothing here for me. There is nothing more in the world that I would love to do, to escape, to get on a tour bus and go somewhere where no one knows me. I would like to spend the summer on the road with one of my favorite bands selling merch and helping run things. That would be one good fucking summer. There is one specific band I am thinking of and one boy who would make it even better. Who wants to make that happen?But really just any band I like woul suit me just fine. I wish...

Back to reality, I have to be up in 6 hours,to learn a bunch of shit that I am never going to use in my life. I just want to move to Nashville or somewhere else that will allow me to get a music business degree so that the school system can spit me out and let me get paid to listen to other people's music all day... I just want to do damn a&r.

I am also trying to figure out where the hell I went wrong with the B thing. I really thought we had potential, I thought we had something there. But as soon as it appears to be on track-bam!... something ran it off the road. I sure as hell am gonna miss him. There is no denying that I will spend too much time & effort overanalyzing what I did wrong and then cry too many tears. Sometimes I think even attempting to go for crushes, is just asking for diaster. at least in my case. hahaha.

Good news, though second interview at red lobster tommorow. I really hope I get the job. Wish me luck.

I noticed that everyone is going thru not so great times in their lives right now. Maybe it's the universe trying to tell us all something, maybe it's a coincidence, whatever it is. I love you all. you're amazing. just remember that we will all get thru it all. and when we do, we will supposedly look back and laugh.

However, for now I must run off to do my oh-so-exciting western civ hw. I know you're jealous.

"there are certain people you keep coming back to" [17 Jan 2006|09:57am]
[ mood | contemplative ]

My 9:30 class was canceled today and now I have an extra hour to do something and I find myself here in the school library typing out my thoughts. I have to say I am so glad that my class was canceled because I missed my bus this morning and I would have been 20 minutes late to class which would have royally pissed off my professor. So sometimes things really are a blessing in disguise. This morning I was so pissed that I missed my bus and then I saw a 3 car accident happen right in front of me.It was really bad this car smashed into the car in front of them full force and then the second car hit the car in front of them.I felt so horrible just sitting there knowing I could do nothing and one lady was just balling, another one had her necks to her neck and looked like she was in extreme pain and one of the guys gets out of his car screaming "this is bullshit" before even making sure that everything is ok. People suck.I still wish there was something I could do. Then on the bus this morning I noticed that everyone looked sad and I hate to say it but there is so much bad in the world, why can't things be good? I will never understand why people have everything and others have nothing.

My classes seem like they are going to be interesting this semester.I am not taking any science or math classes this semester *dances* which sucks only because I am going to be so far behind in my math classes. But I am too happy to not deal with it this semester. :)
Here is what I am taking...
-Western Civilization 1600's to Present
-Seminole Singers aka Chorus
-Contemporary Ethical Problems
-Renaissance/Baroque Humanities
what are y'all taking?

Things with Brett are going really well.I am not sure if we are officially dating or what... but I really really like him. He is just such a nice guy and the things that he says and the things that he does, he is just amazing. We talk almost every day and hang out almost as much.Here is a picture of us title or description
do we make a good couple? We both look like such nerds. hahaha. I love it.

I have been hanging out with Gen,Jenn, and Brian alot lately it has been good times.I do believe we are heading to Old Town with Amie and Katie on Thursday and I am pretty stoked :).

FF5 tommorow night at The Social!!Be there or be square it will be an awesome show!!

I think that is all I have to say for now, but there may be more later.

I hope life is being wonderful to y'all.

"I'm not afraid of anything in this world, there's nothing you can throw at me that I haven't alread [18 Dec 2005|12:44am]
[ mood | geeky ]

I have decided that I am done with the misery party. Being negative all the time is not cool. Sorry that I have been so lame lately. But it's back to being me... at least as much of me as I can be.

My car is still not fixed and I don't have money to get a new one and won't anytime soon. I am getting used to walking,taking the bus and taking riding from all of you dolls who help me out. I will tell you one thing about public transportation you defintely see some characters. As for the walking well my thighs could use the workout.

Work still sucks. I hate that B&N are choosing to be ignorant, to only hear one side of the story, and it is making me not want to work for them anymore. As soon as I can get another job or a new car I am getting the hell outta there.

The Family Force 5 was last Wednesday in Ybor City. Gen, the Hanson girls and I all went, with the FF5 boys it's a guaranted good time. They put on 1 hell of a show, and they are such nice guys. Even if we had to sit thru 2 bands that we didn't like so much it was well worth it. We even have FF5 nicknames straight from the guys. hehe. but anyways.. check them out www.familyforce5.com and lemme know what you think.

Gen,Amie,Katie and I went to Grinchmas and Margitaville. It is always good times with those girls. We get along so well, it's almost crazy.

Work in the early am tommorow. Leave me some love. and I will write more later complete with FF5 pics and random fun stuff.

P.S Gen-Gen: I hope you're doing ok, if you need to talk, you know how to get ahold of me. and remember it wasn't say goodbye, it was see ya later.

I have decided that the fact that I put too much faith in people will be my downfall. Therefore I should just remember a few simple things next time I decide to depend on people...
#1... Don't depend on anyone. Everyone will disappoint you.
#2... Everyone lies. Even when it's the last person you would ever expect it to be.
#3... Friends really do come and go.

[28 Nov 2005|02:23am]
You know those moments in your life, the ones that define you, the ones that make you are? In those moments, no matter how big or small the event is that triggers them you know exactly who you are and what you stand for and believe in. I wish that I could have one of those moments right now so I could feel certain of who I am and what I stand for. Lately, I feel like I am losing sight of me and where the hell my life is headed. This uncertainity it scares the hell out of me. I have always known exactly who I am and what I want out of life.. until now. It's been a joke, that I am my own force, that I can change things, that I can make them happen. But now I have no idea what I want, the things that I have always thought and always wanted are no longer realistic. I dyed my hair yesterday, I thought a change would do me good. Maybe if I could just change my look and maybe if I can go to a new place, I could put things back into perspective or better yet gain a new perspective. But it did not work, because as I watched the dye go down the drain I felt like a coward, like I was losing a part of myself. I have always been blonde, my whole life I have been blonde.Now I have a head of reddish brown hair and all I wanna do is cry, because I don't feel any better but I don't feel as much like me. I wish things could go back to the way they used to be, things weren't always better but at least I could predict them. ok, well I feel really sick, so I will continue my pointless rambling later.

"go make your next choice, be your best choice." [24 Nov 2005|10:19pm]
I promised the dolls known as Katie from Boston and my bff Gen that I would start writing in this again. I really do miss it. It's a cool thing to be able to look back on your life and see exactly what you were up to and what you were thinking.I hope that everyone is having a fabulous time in their lives.Here is a little bit of what I have been up to. So here we go...
I cannot believe that is almost 2006. I think I have grown up more this year than any other year. My mentality level and the way I take things is finally starting to be that of a 20 year instead of a childish middle schooler.Gen and I had a long talk about this the other day,I think that everyone has one year when they just know that things have changed and that they have become different people but for the better.Seriously, it feels damn good to look and known that you have matured. I am in the middle of my second year of college and it is defintely not have I would have imagined it. I still have no idea what the hell I am gonna do. I want to get a Music Business Degree but I suck at music theory and am even worse at math. *sigh*. what's a girl to do? I still would love to sing, but I haven't had training in almost a year. I could go back to a private voice studio, but it gets too expensive and sometimes I wonder how much it really helps. I believe that everyone has a God given talent that they are supposed to embrace and I always thought that music in some sort of shape or form was mine. But how can I go after something when I continue to get obstacles pushed in my path on the way there, maybe it is a test to how bad I want it. I just feel like if I don't do something with music then what the hell am I gonna do with my life. I am great at talking and being social and if I could get paid for it then I would be rolling in the dough... maybe I should get a degree in mass communications or public relations. Signs would great right about now. haha. As for my classes this semester, let's just say I cannot wait for them to be over. I am in doubt as to if I will pass my geology class, and the fact that I had to drop my math class halfway thru did not make me happy.I don't want to take classes next semester but I better if not I will never graduate. Maybe I will get to take some stuff that I am actually interested in and then my GPA will be better. yayyy!
I am still head over heels for a certain band member,I would love to think that he feels the same way, especially a certain incident that happened between us a while back. Too bad I suck when it comes to boys and might have ruined it forever or I might get lucky and he won't remember the incident or take it too seriously.I get to see him sorta soon and I am so excited and nervous all at the same time. I just need to talk to him and see what he has to say. Of course, we could make out too, that would be nice. ;)
Then there is always Cory, the damn ex, for me he's the one that will always be a part of him that will never get over him. But I feel like I might be ready for everything with him and I to be over and I think I would be ok with it. We were supposed to hang out sometime this weekend while he is in town but he "lost my number" and did not call when we were supposed to hang out and then invites me over at 1 in the morning, when I was tired as hell,and then when I say "maybe another time" he precedes to tell me that he "was busy for the next couple days". whatever. I am so sick of being second best for him. if he can't make time for me, then it's bullshit and I don't want to deal with it.
Besides, in the end I just have my heart set on my band guy. <3.
Well I will write more later. I just wanted to get some of that out for now.

"It's your god forsaken right to be loved, loved, loved" [08 Apr 2005|10:59pm]
[ mood | restless ]

Hi Guys!!! Well here we go again... a short story of Britt's life. The Yankee game was the highlight of Spring Break. We went to see the Yankees play the Astros in Kissimmee and it was sooo much fun. I wish I could go back again. I can't wait till May 5th when Gen-Gen and I hit up Tampa Bay for a YANKEE GAME! But back to the game.. although my Derek wasn't playing... the game was amazing.We were only 8 rows back from the field and the weather ws beautiful.I kept sneaking past security to get pics of the guys in the dugout.I almost got arrested but it was worth just to piss off the old asshole security guy. I got real close to A-rod and was like "hey alex.. will you smile for me?". he just looked at me real quick and looked away laughing.but it's all good.. I think he thought it was funny.=). Out of all the guys that played, new and old, besides A-Rod,Jorge and Matsui... I <3 BUBBA CROSBY... NUMBER 19! He is my fave new player, besides being an awesome player he is super cute and he signed our balls. =).Be on the lookout for him this season.
I went to see Marc Broussard play on the 19th at Mardi Gras.Marc was amazing... I was really really surprised by his performance considering what he did when he opened for Gavin last year. He sang almost everything off Carencro and even some stuff that wasn't. The only bad part of the show was when this guy spilled his beer all over me and told me "I was a fucking bitch and needed to drink some beer" whatever. O.A.R fans are assholes.HAHAHA.
MAROON 5 was on the 26th. I LOVED EM! They played at this real weird venue,where rodeos normally are, so the stage setup was a little weird.lol. As for the show.... the Donnas opened and I thought they sucked. You know it's bad when you have to ask for applause.lol.MAROON 5 however was a whole different story. The guys were totally on from the time they walked on stage. Adam Levine's voice is amazing and cannot truly be captured on a studio album. The guys played some new stuff and it rocks!
The highlight of the show was when Adam had everyone sing and all you could hear were fans singing at the top of their lungs and glow sticks and lighters waving in the air. We tried to meet the guys after the show, but security kicked us out. We stalked from outside for a while.. hidden in the bushes... with my car lights turned off. hahaha. it was quite amusing.
By the way... I am even more in love with JASON MRAZ!!!! I saw him last weekend... we had front row. This hip-hop group, Arrested Development played and they were so much fun. They had everyone clapping, singing and dancing the whole time they were on. Then after getting hit in the face with mardi gras beads, during the bead frenzy... JASON came on!! He looked super cute in a jeans, chucks, and a long sleeved white shirt. He opened with "Curbside Prophet" and he played all my faves and 4 or 5 new songs, and they were all amazing.I loved his solo, this hippy hawaiian song called "I'm Your's". It's acoustic and I have never heard Jason so beautiful on anything.I suggest checking it out.
Also... it's offical. I am going to TULSA!!!! I'm going to see Hanson play at Mayfest and see the documentary at the h.net event. =). I'm SOOOOO EXCITED! Bekah,Ola,Katy,Nancy,Shanel,Erica,Rachel,Nancy's friend,and I are all going May 18-22!!!
YAYYYYYY!!!! School is out in less than a month and I cannot wait!! Who wants to hang out?How is life treating everyone? I miss you all! Sorry this post is so random and not put together. I just cannot focus.lol.Well my bed is calling me. I gottz 2 jett!

"It's been a long time comin..." [14 Mar 2005|12:07am]
I am finally in the mood to write in this thing. My good old lj, I didn't forget about it, it just didn't appeal to me for a while. But I feel like writing and it feels like an old friend. =). Well 2005, hasn't been exactly what I have been expecting but then again, what ever really is? The year has felt more like a chore than anything else. It seems like work,school,work,school,voice lesson,homework, work,school, over and over again everyday. But the moments I love most in my life are the ones that are out of the ordinary.The ones when I laugh till I can't breathe,the ones when I feel liberated and free, the ones when you learn something, the ones when you experience something and all you want to do is stay in the moment forever <3 Here a few highlights of the year thus far....
-New Year's Eve (does that count)with Gen, Carissa and Monique... it was just lots of laughter and good time
-The Keane and Redwalls show at the HOB... the show was insanely amazing. The Redwalls blew my mind, they're majorly talented and cool as hell.For the record, Justin Baron of the Redwalls is my future boyfriend even if he doesn't know it yet ;)Everyone should check them out www.theredwalls.com (I think that's what the website is). Keane was so good, their talent is raw and their voices are pure. Both bands envisioned what a concert should be and made up for the Zutons being the middle act)
-Friday nights at the Alehouse
-Cosmic Bowling on numerous occasions
-Getting my i-pod =)
-My recital (it's so nervewracking but when it's over the feeling of relief is the best and it's also always a good thing to work on your performance abilities. haha.)\
-Eric Skelton show at the Showdust.... good times, good music,good people, need I say more?
-CCR concert at Mardi Gras!CCR= AMAZING!!!!
-finding out Zac Hanson and his g/f Kate got engaged, not a highlight but one that made me realize that we really are all growing up and one of my childhood dreams in gone forever. =(
-the yankee game today! it ruled! there will be pics and details coming later. I <3 Bubba!!!
But for now, me and my sunburned face and neck will leave you with a hot dave matthew lyric.... "Life is short, but sweet for certain, celebrate we will"
I will write more later.

"I'm homesick, I'm carsick, and I'm music sick." [24 Nov 2004|12:10pm]
Hiya Guys! Well well I hope life is treating everyone well. Leave it to John Mayer to be able to sum up how I'm feeling. When I first heard "Home Life" I was all "music sick" how could you ever be music sick. But now I finally get it. I am really really burnt out on music right now. Not the music that I love listen to, like Hanson, Gav, the Beatles, etc. But the music theory and all the classical music that has been shoved down my throat for the last 4 months. I finally did it, I decided that I am longer going to be a music performance major. I withdrew from my theory and sight-singing classes and will just be a voice minor. Some people really cannot comprehend that I want to stop what I am doing with music, cause I have been doing it for so long. But enough on the music stuff.... wait.. before I forget my CHORUS CONCERT is December 7th at 7:00 pm in the SCC Auditorium... come and check it out!!!
Ok, now I am done with the music stuff for now.hehe. So exactly a year ago, I hung out with Cory and he made things complicated by kissing me. I'm sure that he is in town for Thanksgiving and I'll more than likely call him and we'll prolly hang out. I need to talk to him and get things sorted out and not get distracted by kissing him. haha. I'll keep updating on that situation and feel free to give me some advice. I have to work at Johnny Rocket's tonight and I don't wanna go. =(. Thanksgiving is tommorow, I hope everyone has a decent one. I hate Thanksgiving, my highlight however is when my Mom, Gen's Mom,Gen, and I all go down and help serve food at the Salvation Army. That always make me feel so much better about what I have and reminds me that I should be grateful. =). HAPPY EARLY TURKEY DAY!!!!
Well I gottz 2 jett!

" I'm on a mission responsible.... [16 Nov 2004|08:43pm]
WOW! I can't believe that November is halfway over already. Every year goes by faster and faster. The weather was beautiful today. I went to the Gavin Degraw/Michael Tolcher show in Jacksonville last weekend with my Hanson girls. I drove to Bekah's and spent the night friday night, then Ola came over Saturday morning and we headed to Gainesville to pick up "it's great to be a florida gator" Nancy. From UF we headed over to the venue in Jacksonville, we got there super early and we had front row. We made a bunch of new friends... most of whom were HANSON FANS! I had to tell so many people off cause they all kept trying to cut in front of us. But we're Hanson fans and we wanted front row and everyone knows not to fuck with us. We made friends with Michael Tolcher's band and Lefty referred to us as "y'all crazy fucking HANSON fans." hahaha.lmao. The show was incredible. Michael Tolcher is such a good performer and he sang to me. My friends were like "omg he was singing to you the whole time." haha.lmao.Gavin was too incredible for words as always. He sang to Hllary on the phone when he sang "let's get it on." After the show Gavin told me he liked my shirt and invited me to the bar with him. I was like "OMG! Gavin invited me to the bar!" Too bad I'm only 19 and can't get into bars. It didn't matter cause he didn't go anyways. muhahaha. I love going to a good show it's the best feeling. My recital went well. I will more later.Well I gottz 2 jett!
P.S. Go buy the Marc Broussard cd right now! it's so good!

"and every moment extends endlessly...." [03 Nov 2004|10:33am]
[ mood | awake ]

Hey Hey! Wow,how I have missed writing in my lj. I miss all my friends and hearing what they have to say and what I can say to them. As for life,it just keeps going. It's weird to think that so much time has gone by.I think time changes us or maybe time is just an excuse we all use in our heads. I feel like I don't know some of my friends anymore. I have made a lot of friends, especially in the music department, but I don't feel like they're my real friends, like the ones I used to know.As for school, I still don't know what I am going to do about my major. I mean, I love singing, I can't imagine not having music in my life. But, all this theory shit is really getting to me. For those of you who have known me for a while, what can you see me doing? Work is ok. Johnny Rocket's is the same as always. I met all the CEO's of the company last week. Barnes and Noble is amazing but man oh man does it have it's days.I'm scurred for the holidays in retail. *runs away*. You know what I did yesterday? I ROCKED THE VOTE! I voted for the first time and it was such a good feeling. I mean I don't really agree with either of the candidates, but I voted for Bush,noone hate me please and thank you. I am going to see Gavin DeGraw and Michael Tolcher this weekend. Gen was supposed to go with me and now she can't. That makes me sad, it won't be the same w/out her.=(.My recital is in 6 days....I'm a lil' worried so we will have to see how that goes.Ooh and I met this real cute guy at work... his name is Chris and he is so cute... he's a total Robert Carmine lookalike and seems real nice. I hope he comes in again.Hehe.Halloween was crazy but fun times as always. I went as Catwoman and Gen went as Madonna.We got hit on guys work for the government...buhaha..it was insane!Hope everyone is well.Well I gottz 2 jett...

"And we can dance all night!" [03 Sep 2004|05:41pm]
Wow!Man oh man, I have had some good ass times lately! First up, things with Jacob are going great. We've been hanging out and talking all the time. Gen,KT,Paul,Lucas, Jacob and I all went bowling a couple weeks ago, it was so much fun and that's how we broke the ice. Not only is Jacob damn cute, but he is hysterically funny and he is real nice. =). We have been hanging out and talking all the time. I dunno exactly what we are. We need to talk about it next time we hang out.Details coming soon. hehe. I hope something good happens cause I am totally crushin' on him.

Gen and I had way too much fun on our trip to Jacksonville! We stayed with Karen's sister's family. They are too nice.Chuck is a musician and they have a recording studio in their house. Is that not the coolest thing in the world?! We stayed in the recording studio and stayed up all night playing Pacman.But the reason we were there in J-Ville, was for the AMERICAN IDOL CONCERT! We had 3rd row on the floor and it was so much fun! The concert was amazing. Almost all of the top 10 had incredible voices.They sang a Prince medley, as well as other songs. I will try to find a setlist and post it! After the show, we went and met some of them. We met my fave George Huff, as well as Jennifer Hudson, Latoya, Jasmine,and the 2 John's.

I auditioned for AMERICAN IDOL! The whole experience was defintely once in a lifetime. I will write about it later.

My birthday was amazing! I think my 19th was one of my best ever.I went over to Gen's house to find that her house was decorated in pink and blue streamers, a big sign in her kitchen that said Happy 19th Birthday Brittany and had silver HANSON symbols next to it.Gen baked me cupcakes and her parents got me a rose.Gen got me the best birthday hat ever. It's shiny with polka dots and hearts and has white fluffy stuff on it!Then Gen, KT and I headed over to the Macaroni Grill for my birthday dinner.It was like old times,aaw, I really missed that.I loved my presents.Thanks guys you always know how to make everything special. After dinner, we headed out to Downtown Disney to meet up with my street team girls.On the way we decided to call Jacob and invite him, well ok, tell him he was coming with us.Aaw, he's so cute, he even got me a birthday card.We went and had such a blast! He's hysterical and even sang and danced along with us in the car to Michael Jackson!We walked around the Virgin Megastore for like 2 hours, I got the Ryan Cabrera cd and the MAROON5 Acoustic cd. When we left we went to Steak and Shake and made up hilarious madlibs! After that, I dropped Jacob off and we blasted Maroon5's "She will be loved".


Everyone be safe and take care for Frances! I <3 y'all!

Well I gottz 2 jett!
