" The Old Lady Band" Well it all started about 2 alomost 3 years ago.I was in the 7th grade and my dad said we were going to a concert with alot of bands i rremeber leeland the afters skillet and of course barlowgirl were gping to be there. I was excited to see this concert it was called 7/7/7 because it was on the 7th month(july) on the 7th(it was a saturday) and in 2007. I was also excited because it was one of the first concert ive had ever been to and i never saw any of the bands that were going. I only heard barlowgirl on the radio and for some odd reason i thought they were like an old lady band that olny played slow music(i was very wrong).So we went ot the concert it was half way done i was so pumped to see skillet and "the old lady band" preform but we got news that brlowgirls plane was having trouble landing so that got me sad but i still had hope that i would see them. Skillet was the 2nd to the last band to preform (barlowgirl was last) and when they started they sad that barlowgirls plane didnt land and they werent going ot preform that night, they alos mentioned that they were going to play thw rest of the show since ntye werent going ot show up. So i never saw "the old lady band" preform that night and it was almost 1 year later that they were gping to preform again. My dad told that we weregoing to go see them and i was thinking"oh no not the old lady band again" and i said " are they acutally going ot preform this time". So we were on our way tp the concert and i was very excited it was jimmy needham and barlowgirl but i wasnt so excited for barlowgirl because of the last ex[perience i had with them. Were at the concert and jimmy needham just finished preforming and he wa awesome and while i got his atougraph barlowgirl was setting up(i didnt even know what they looked like at the time). So im waling back to my seat from getting jimmy needhams autograph and i see a bunch of girls screaming there heads off wearing "save the lobster" shirts and i was looking at them like they were crazy at the time. So there they were "the old lady band" on stage about to preform and i was trying to hide that i was retty excited. They opened with Grey. M y muth dropped to the floor, My ear drums popped out of ears,and i turned in to thiose crazy girls jumping around siing along. After that they blew the sound system and said that it usually hapens to them. I was so amazed!" The old lady band" was so awesome, they were all sisters one(lauren) was playing the drums and singing at the exact same time, the other(aylssa) was playing piano and bass , and the other(becca) was rocking ot on the guitar. After the whole concert i think i turned senile. I grabbed my dads hand and forced him to buy my a barlowgirl poster, i remember saying to him"i dont care how long it takes we are standing in this line and were going to get there autograph wheater you like or not!". So we stood in line for like 2 ours and finally got to the fornt. I was so nervous and excited at the same time (because i realized that i truly loved this band)and when we got there i didnt even say a word but i do remeber 'saying "you guys are so awesome!'(at least imgot something out). So after that day i never called them "the old lady band' i now own a "save the lobster' shirt and watched every single podcast that barlowgirl has ever made(i am offically addicted to them) and i am always watchin out for when they preform again and this time i will be ready.

Well today was a pretty good day i guess. I was in health class and everything was so kool cause greg was singing the lion king haha, that was funny(even though he sang it wrong, its in the MIGHTY jungle not the LONLEY jungle greg!) but then mrs. wyatt decides to give us the news that we are taking home "Baby Think It Over" in a couple weeks.Hmm not so excited about that. if you don't know what it is, its pretty much taking hmmmm a FAKE REAL LOOKING baby for one weekend and that really sucks cause i don't think i will hear the baby cry when I'm sleeping and might fail so yea.
Anywho about my day, it started raining finally since california decided to be HOT in WINTER!! not kool, but it was good cause while it was raining i was inside at our pep rally which was pretty embarassing because I'm a freshman and i don't really want to "rep my class" (2013) because i think all the seniors just might throw me in a trash can.
