I just bought my ticket for This is Not a Step 2013

Because after spending this day at a wake, the first one I’ve had to go to since my stepfather passed, the first one I’ve had to travel to and be at by myself, for one of the few people who was a real friend to my mother, where every other person told me something to the effect of “You probably don’t remember me but I knew you when you were a baby, I know who you are because you look exactly like your mother”, I don’t see any reason why I shouldn’t fly to the Bay ‘just’ so I can see a bunch of bands and try to find/make friends who might feel like family one day. Life is too short to not do things because you hate flying and always feel nervous about everything in the whole world.
