Please watch this! And if you dig it, it would mean the world to me if you reblogged it. I’m going to be continuing this every day, so a youtube subscribe would be amazing also. Feel free to tell me what you think in your reblog, or in a message.
Thank you so much

And I’ll know when I hear your name
Even if I have to sing it to myself”

If you follow my blog, and look at it semi-regularly, you probably know that I am in a DIY Folk-Punk band, Gina From Constantine. If you didn’t know that, you can check us out here and here. Now, as we are wrapping up on our first EP, which is due to come out either this week or the next (which will be available for purchase on the provided bandcamp) we are looking to expand our horizons.
So, our goal is by early next year (Mid March to early April) to be on tour. We’ve planned out a general route we’d like to take, which stretches to Manhattan, New York. Unfortunately, we don’t have many contacts in most of the places we’ve planned. THIS is where you guys come in.
I’m asking two things of you guys, firstly, if any of you know of any DIY venues, or houses, or garages, that bands like us regularly play at, I would like you to give me the contact info of such places. We are going to plan our tour around the following cities:
Ft. Wayne, Indiana
Brooklyn, New York
New York, New York
Manhattan, New York
So, if you live near these places, and know a pretty solid place we can play, you can drop me a message in my inbox (here). It would be more appreciated than I can even say.
Secondly, whether you know anyone in these cities or not, I ask that you re-blog this post. The more people this message reaches, the better, and every re-blog will make me so god-damned happy.
Either way, thank you all for continuing to be supportive of my constant pestering about my band and what not. You guys are absolutely amazing.

I told him that his music inspired me to write again, and there weren’t words I could say that would be enough to thank him. He’s an awesome person to meet, and if you ever get the chance, go to a Ramshackle show.

I wanted to do something semi personal for my 1000th post on Tumblr, because I never really get to say many personal things on here, apart from my poetry, and all my band stuff. So, if your not one for sentimental shit, you should probably just keep scrolling.
These past 2 weeks have been particularly shitty for me, for reasons I’d rather not talk about… they just have, but I’ve been feeling so damn proud lately.
Not even for me, because while I am proud of myself for getting back into the swing of making music (no matter how slow I am with that) but more for my friends. One of my friends just got romantically involved with someone he’s been trying to for quite a while, and I can’t stress how proud of him I am for that. Partly because he’s a pretty shy guy, and shit like that is really hard for him, but also because everyone needs that feeling of accomplishment. It’s something that lets me know that I can get back on the horse again, and keep trying to pursue the things I want. So good job, my friend.
The other one of my good friends recently just quit college to focus more on his music. I hate the people who say that shit like this is a bad idea, no shit. Of course it’s not the greatest idea to YOU, because you don’t get it. You don’t, really. Music is 99% of the people I hang out with’s lives, and it’s hard to actually drop something very important in your life to others, to do something that’s very important to YOU. In the end, you HAVE to follow your dreams, as corny as that shit is. Because we’re only on this earth for so little time, and who the fuck cares about your 9-5 job at some faceless corporation. Unless that is what you REALLY wanted to do, then you can be as prideful as you want, and nobody can knock that. But if you end up in a situation that you never wanted to be in, working for something in which you have no passion for, then you’re going to end up miserable. You have to pursue what you love, and fuck the rest if you don’t want to end up miserable.
I love every single one of my friends, and I’m getting to the point where I can say that I love myself, too. It hasn’t been that way in a long time, it really hasn’t. Anyone who knows me IRL, I love you guys, I really do. You guys are a constant inspiration to keep moving towards the things I want, and to not look back at the awful things in the past, and to not get dragged down by the awful things/people around me. Seriously, I love you guys, and I thank each and every one of you.
And even all the people who follow me. Thank you, you give enough of a shit about the content I create to have it plastered on your dash on a daily basis. That means a lot to me, and I don’t think we tell each-other that enough. Because I follow most of the people who follow me, I know you guys post some of the most awesome content, and it makes me happy to sit around and peruse my blog. You make MY blog cooler by being cool bloggers, and that’s amazing. So, while I don’t know many of you all that much, thank you so much for just being… awesome.
I guess that’s it. Thank you to everyone who actually read through this, and I thank everyone for just being… themselves. Because, god damn it, at the end of the day, who else can you be? :)
