Train Concert!

22 Apr

If you haven’t noticed, I’m a sucker for quotes.

I find them very uplifting and use them constant reminders. I’ve been in a really good place the past couple of days. I’ve discover a plethora of new blogs that are SO fantastic. Once I get them organized in my reader I’ll be sharing them 🙂

So I brought in my own mug and bowl to work because our office bowls and mugs are boring and no fun to look at.

Much better! The bowl’s from Pier One and was around $2 and the mug’s from Marshalls. Love it.

So if you follow me on Twitter, you’ll know that I scored free tickets to a Train concert at Webster Hall. For those of you who don’t know Train, they sing Drops of Jupiter, Meet Virgina and Hey Soul Sister. Origins sponsors a month long go green initiative so in order to get the free tickets I had to sign a “Be Green” petition! Yay for Earth Day.

Leanna and I headed to the Heartland Brewery before the show for some drinks and apps. We both opted for the “Not Tonight Honey” stout for $5!

One of the things I miss most since moving to NYC is driving. I love driving. I love it because on a hot summer day I can roll all the windows down, stick my arm out and belt out my favorite songs at the top of my lungs with the music as loud as it goes. So basically I miss singing and the liberating feeling that is comes with. When I tell other NYCers of my predicament they ask what’s stopping me from singing on the subway with my headphones in. Honestly, I probably could. I’d be classified as one of the crazies … and I don’t really want that.

So why bring this up? Because I got my “screaming to the top of my lungs” in at this show. I warned Leanna that it could get ugly.

The show was AWESOME!

I was a bit groggy the next day but cured that with a little nectar of the gods.

And then I felt better.

Are you a car singer?

    I totally know what you mean about missing driving and car singing! I’m definitely a car singer haha. At school, I always crave driving. Without a car I feel kind of trapped.
    Last summer, I drove to my internship instead of taking the T (like I had the summer before) and it was the same length commute but SO much better.

    I am 100% a car singer– I just brought my car to the city, but it’s parked in one of my coworker’s garages, so it’s not around for joyrides yet.

    And I already told Leanna but I LOVE Train, I’m so jealous!!!!
