Hey, y’all! So, as y’all know I am a huge fan of live music and just music in general. Any genre of music, any instrument, guitar, you name it. Music is a very important part of life, I believe. It lets you express yourself through songs and be able to relate to artists who share the same thoughts as you do, or at least it seems like.
Last week I made a trip to Kyoto once more for a live show, and the artists coming all the way from Australia just to play some Japan shows. Their name is Camp Cope and the band consists of 3 girls who just absolutely rock! Their music hits very personally and I can relate to it very well, which is why I went to see them. They had an absolutely amazing show and had fun interactions with the crowd, regardless of their non-japanese speaking ability.
I’m heading back to America during Christmas break, and I have to say that I’m quite excited. I’ll get to eat lots of home-cooked meals that I didn’t laboriously make myself, I’ll stay with my parents and my sisters and there will be much bonding, I’ll be able to see my beloved Mt. Rainier on the horizon once more, there’ll be trees everywhere and rain everyday, and of course, y’know, Christmas! There’s a lot to look forward to.
I think the biggest factor behind my anticipation is seeing my Niecey Baby, Missy Elliott. Missy does not like being restrained in any way; she’s got running around and walks and fetch and tug-o-war and licking-you-to-death-because-why-aren’t-you-playing-let’s-goooooo to do. As a result, she’s not fond of hugs. At all. She’ll tolerate it for, like, five seconds, mostly out of shocked betrayal that her beloved humans would torture her so. Stage two: she turns those big brown puppy-dog eyes on the nearest human, begging for rescue while they just coo over how cute she is in her misery. Stage three: squirming to freedom. It’s so cute. She hates it, but she’s so cute in her misery, that we all can only continue to torture her. And I haven’t been able to torture her personally in many months.
So I’m looking forward to it.
