No, I cannot.
Which is actually why we’re going to have this series.
I’ve been spending over a year living on the edge of my laptop’s memory. I delete enough to store more stuff; back up, delete, repeat. I went to the Apple Store to find out how to access my photos from my iPhoto library once it’s backed up on the hard drive and the response I got was a lecture on how I needed more storage space. Well, yes, if I’m backing up the SAME IPHOTO LIBRARY EIGHT TIMES because I’m afraid if I delete it from my laptop I’ll never be able to access it again even though it’s on my backup drive, I will need more than a terabyte of storage.
I have a lot of photos.
I’m going the roundabout way of copying all of these to my desktop from the library so I know I have actual openable, editable files instead of the theory of them. What’s nice about this is I get to go through photos I haven’t seen almost since I took them. I’ve had this computer five years and I started at the beginning, so that means these initial photos are from fall 2009, which was my first semester of college.
I thought it would be kind of fun to go back through these photos, which if I had known anything about blogging back when I was doing it, I would have blogged these when. they. happened. instead of waiting five years and blogging about nonsense like chocolate milk and procrastination in the interim.
Alas. And without further ado, let’s go back in time.
What’s baffling is I remember the name of the church and I know where it is (Sunshine Community Church, Beltline, GRMI). Granted, I had to go there one other time for a Kumon graduation ceremony when I was still working there, but the minute I heard where it was I knew it was where I’d seen BarlowGirl.
I just don’t apparently have that great a memory of the concert itself (although the more I think about it, it’s beginning to come back to me).
BarlowGirl was taking their last or second-to-last tour (I think; I only know they ended the group a while later) and Superchikk opened for them.
I do remember loving it.
All of these photos are in their SOOC glory, in case you were wondering.
After Superchikk played, BarlowGirl took the stage. And I think they realized we were all feeling a little weird about jamming to rock music in church pews so they told us all to come up front.
So we did.
And that is the time I saw BarlowGirl live.
