Thankful... Wednesday?

I've been thankful all week and I know it's Wednesday, but I wanted to post my gratitude and thankfulness for this weekend today. I will still do a post for tomorrow, but since I'm still in a great mood and have felt grateful since Friday, I am writing today. I feel grateful for my experience this weekend. I know I have said last week that I was thankful that I had the opportunity to meet Twiztid, but I am thankful that they truly are genuine guys. I'm thankful that they take the time for their fans and will talk to them. I know there are some musicians that aren't like that. I am grateful for the hugs and just everything else about the meet and greet. One of my friends posted this and he's right:

Hey Jess, I am happy you had such a wonderful time at the meet and greet and that everything met your expectations. It sounds like these guys genuinely care about their fan base which makes them stand-up guys and worthy of the admiration.

I'm also thankful for the people I met at the show and still keep in touch with. They were all wonderful people, especially since they made sure I got home okay. It's also cool to know that other people have had the same experiences; no one is truly alone. I know a few people give Twiztid/ICP fans a bad rap, that they are "awful people," but in my experience they aren't. The people I knew growing up from Tower City weren't bad people, the people I met in the Midwest (who would have thought that some of the Packers fans I met were also Twiztid fans?!) and people I talk to from the Midwest are awesomely nice and the people I met this week were genuine as well. I am just thankful for my experiences. Besides one person (Andrew, you know who I'm referring to), I've always had positive experiences and I've always felt like I belong. It's hard to put into words the gratitude I feel or maybe the words just fall short, but I just feel amazing still.

I'm sure some of my readers remember this: Dear Me 2014. I'm going to write a follow up, I'm going to write what I learned this year and everything I've accomplished this year. I've done a lot this year and I think I've grown as a person. I may post it. I'm also going to write "Monoxide Smile Pt. 2" as a poem. :) I feel very inspired to write about everything. As I told Christina last night, "I'm thinking of releasing a self published book soon before I actually publish a Wisconsin book. It's been three years since I've self published and I want to again." I just feel so good and I love the feeling.


  1. Great thankful post! I hope the happy feeling is still ongoing. :)

    1. Yes! I'm still on cloud 9 and Twiztid just re-tweeted my Twiztid (painted) pumpkin! :D I think I'm going to be happy for a while... I hope this will be enough to hold me over through next week and December 5....
