relient k for life


Good Charlotte & Simple Plan -  I Just Wanna Live, Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous, and Shut Up

I remember watching this live on the TV and I screamed when they said they both were going on tour together!! I also remember telling mom and dad that I wanted to go so bad!!! I would kill to see both my 2 favorite bands all on the same bill. They didn’t say much about it. A while or so later, they finally announced tour dates for their Noise To The World tour. Cleveland being one of the places! Made me soo excited and I wanted to go soo incredibly bad! Some pop radio station was giving a bunch of sets of tickets away the entire day to anyone who could answer one of many questions asked about Good Charlotte right. I knew every answer, I spent that whole day sitting Indian style in the middle of the living room floor in front of the big radio stereo system holding the wireless phone with my thumb on the redial. I called for every question, always was busy and I didn’t get an answer…

My dad saw how incredibly bummed out I was about it. A few weeks later he called me and my sister into the living room and said they both had a surprise for us. He was holding up the tickets. I remember asking if they were real and crying and me and my sister holding arms jumping in a circle cheering we were so excited!!

I saw Relient K, Good Charlotte, and Simple Plan. All on the same bill. I was 11 years old. This still blows my mind. Definitely an amazing first concert. I still have the 2 shirts we got from this concert. One being my sister’s shirt and my shirt. Sadly the tickets someone stole off my school binder not to long after…

Yeah I don’t think I’ve touched too much on my punk/goth kid phase from 2004 - 2005. lol a Year later I found Fall Out Boy and I moved on to emo from 2006-2007. I went through a lot of phases. xD

once upon a relient K show

matt thiessen gave me a shout out (on stage) to let everyone in chattanooga know that they were playing jefferson aero plane because i’d requested it the night before.

“we’re gonna play four new ones and then a really old one for our friend, anna, who’s in the crowd tonight.” *cue cheesin’ smile*

God knows me better than i know me, and He let matt thiessen call me a friend in front of the boy who once broke my heart, and the girl who waltzed in and won his affections. never underestimate my Jesus.

12 Times Relient K Summarized My Feelings About Christ And The Atonement

1. “Before I could see that You could take all my troubles from me– before I knew You– I was so incomplete.” (There Was Another Time In My Life)

2. “No one told me how bad I’d need You, but I somehow arrived at that conclusion all by myself.” (Give Until There’s Nothing Left)

3. “Never underestimate my Jesus. When the world around you crumbles, He will be strong.” (For The Moments I Feel Faint)

4. “This life sentence that I’m serving, I admit that I’m every bit deserving. But the beauty of Grace is that it makes life not fair.” (Be My Escape)

5. “I celebrate the day that You were born to die so I could one day pray for You to save my life.” (I Celebrate The Day)

6. “I’ve been a liar and I’ll never amount to the kind of person You deserve to worship You. You say You will not dwell on what I did, but rather what I do. You say, ‘I love you, and that’s what you are getting yourself into.’” (Getting Into You)

7. “When the doors were closed, I heard no I-told-you-so’s. I said the words I knew You knew: ‘Oh God, Oh God, I needed You. God, all this time, I needed You.’” (I So Hate Consequences)

8. “You make me sure, in the midst of heartbreak and turbulence, that my spirit soars only because it’s Yours.” (Nothing Without You)

9. “You’re the only one who understands completely. You’re the only one who knows me yet still loves completely.” (I Am Understood?)

10. “You’re the only person who reminds me love is beautiful and true, life is beautiful and new.” (Don’t Blink)

11. “I’ll watch the glint in my eye shine off the spring in my step, and it could be blinding depending on the amount of You that I reflect.” (Forget And Not Slow Down)

12. “With every passing second comes a second chance.” (Fallen Man)

Happy Easter, everyone!! Don’t forget to remember Christ today, and every day, and express your gratitude for the incomprehensible, miraculous gift of His love and sacrifice!

“Never forget: there’s life after death (and taxes). And forgiveness comes, then all of the rest is what passes away. Death and decay can’t touch us now.” 

(Life After Death And Taxes)
