I’m so emo.

not a typical post for me- i focus so much on the FoodLife and FitLife aspects of TurboFitLife that I sometimes forget to post about the FunLife too! But a “concert” I recently went to at the house of blues inspired me to post!

I’m so emo it’s ridiculous. Well… a version of emo. As i have come to realize, everyone has a different (very strong) opinion of what “emo” actually means. I recently went to Emo Night Brooklyn here in San Diego and it was so much fun!! But the music they played varied from what i would consider emo to what i could consider pop punk to just random songs that were on around the same time. to me emo music just hits your heart in that “oh man you just captured all my feels” way. but like… ridiculously angsty lyrics like “The truth, is you could slit my throat. And with my one last gasping breath I’d apologize for bleeding on your shirt.” (from taking back sunday’s “you’re so last summer”). i LOVE that shit. like… i live for lyrics like that. again… i’m so emo! hahaha Also did i mention Jordan Putnik from New Found Glory was there?! yeah… he lives in north county. and he’s awesome.

So at emo night brooklyn what did we hear? A little of everything! it was so much fun to scream and dance and sing with other emo kids! this is what i love about emo shows… they’re so cathartic for me! i am typically not an emotional person… i don’t cry easily at all any more (when i was a kid i would get teary at the slightest sign of confrontation) and i have trouble understanding other people’s emotions sometimes. anyways back to what they played at emo night… there were a couple songs i didn’t recognize. two were by a day to remember, so i guess i never got into them?
