Holy fucking last month and a half.
It started April 15, when I saw Stellar Revival and Theory of a Deadman in Atlanta. My event on April 21 was canceled due to weather, but every. weekend. since. I have been doing... something relatively crazy. And I DID IT. I survived. I had a blast. I will never be the same again.
Seriously, I have some major scars. They itch. :D

Over 3000 miles, 2200 logged in my car by me. 19 bands in 3 events. Close to 150 Facebook messages. Three parties. Two nights camping in North Carolina. One cheap motel room off I-26. One obstacle 5k in the Appalachian mountains. One tropical storm driven through. One week of antibiotics for the nasty scratches on my leg ("wombat wounds"). One day at the beach. One wedding. One day of Oregon Trail-level exhaustion. One baby born to a friend; another friend's baby's death. One de facto boyfriend.
...Did all that really just happen?! ...?!?!?!?
