Last week, my boyfriend’s band, In Your Memory, released their first music video, “Layers of Lies (L.O.L)”.
When I first met them, almost two years ago, they were a fairly new, four person band who were still working out their personal differences and trying to break into the local music scene. Since DC does not have a very big “rock” scene, making a name for themselves in the DC/metro area proved to be challenging. Yet, their determination allowed them to overcome any obstacle that was put in their way, and now two years and one person later, they are thriving.
I can honestly say that I have never met such a talented and dedicated group of young men. The music they make comes straight from their hearts and when they perform, they perform with such passion that one can almost feel it in the audience.
As much as these guys get on my last nerve, I couldn’t be more proud of each and every one of them. It has been such an amazing experience to witness their growth not only as a band, but as brothers. This is only the beginning, I can’t wait to see what this journey has in store for you guys!
In Your Memory, “Layers of Lies”
So, I did exactly what I said I would not do when I started this blog, which is go weeks on end without posting anything. I have been so distracted with school, work and some personal issues that I just kind of forgot about my blog. But I am back and am determined not to neglect my blog any longer! So without further ado, here is a quick recap of what I have been up to this past month.
As you all may know, I am interning at my former high school and have been shadowing Mr. Dasilva, my old middle school teacher and sports coach. I am loving it so far, and have learned a lot already. Each day I am there, I am reminded why I chose the path that I did and am more motivated than ever to finish school.
Even though I am extremely motivated in advancing towards my goal, I sometimes lose that motivation when it comes down actually studying. As much as I love the courses I am taking, the amount of reading and papers I have to do drives me to the brink of insanity. Somehow I have managed to avoid having a complete mental break down when it comes to school, the same cannot be said for other aspects of my life, specifically in the relationship department. However, I am not going to address those issues at this moment. Actually, I most likely will never address them directly because I unfortunately need to be careful about how I discuss it. Don’t worry though, if you keep up with my posts you may be able to figure out what I am trying to say.
All in all, these past couple of weeks have been filled with many headaches and emotional ups and downs. If anything though, it is these ups and downs that have made me realize just how much I need to take some time out of my day to reflect on and appreciate everything that is going on in my life.
