I had a listening party with Rachel Platten and it was so beautiful

You all know I am a huge Rachel Platten fan. It goes back more than five years ago. Look at all the things I’ve experienced with her.

It all started with an announcement:

Meeting Chris Jericho was a dream come true

One of the best things about living in LA is that there are a lot of events everywhere with celebrities. Well, my favorite wrestler of all time Chris Jericho was having a book signing and I had to be there!

I unintentionally cut in line to get my wristband, hung out in the area all day and got back into the line when it was time for the signing. This was the entrance of Jericho above. It was a thrill to be around so many wrestling fans.

I approached Chris and told him about how awesome it was that we are both journalism majors. I shared about my idea of using his entrance at a wedding and he gave me some wise advice. I even showed him my 1,004 holds list and he told me it was Raven’s idea.

He’s a cool guy. What a trip! I love wrestling!

I was on the Price is Right!

Yesterday I finally did it! I attended The Price is Right!

OK, so there was a long wait and I didn’t impress the producer enough to get called on down, but it was so cool to finally be a part of the show I watched growing up. I nearly lost my voice cheering on hoping to get the camera’s attention.

I sat right behind Colleen who did get called on down. So I will see if the Camera got me when they air on November 1.

But the experience of going through the taping and wondering what would happen if I did get called was fun.

Maybe I’ll go again. I liked it!

Back at the Coliseum for my A’s and some root beer floats

On Tuesday I made it back to the Coliseum for the first time in over three seasons. And it was Root Beer Float Day! I hadn’t been to one since 2011 when Mark Ellis was traded.

But it was so fun to be back. Free parking. A great catch up with some friends and look! Dave Kaval and Ken Korach took photos with me!

Additionally, I just enjoyed hearing the sounds of the game, walking through the park, seeing the field I grew up loving. It was special. I missed all of it. I want to go back!

The Coliseum is old but it still has a fun feel to it. I love you, Oakland!

Disneyland’s Main Street Electrical Parade was everything

Oh the memories from today!

It was 25 years ago or so I saw this parade for the first time and even though it’s a short return, I was so happy to have seen it again. I am so happy!

Everything was the same as I remember it! I am so happy!

‘A Walk to Remember the Musical’ was exceptionally glorious

Last night I attended A Walk to Remember the Musical. I loved the movie so much and finding out that Janel Parrish was in it was even sweeter! I like her a lot. I think she is super pretty and talented. Plus she promised me that she there would be a chance to meet her after the show. That is awesome!

The Prospect Theatre is a very unassuming theatre in Hollywood. There was no sign for the place. I knew where the general vicinity of it was, but I had to ask the bouncer where I was and he directed me up towards the stairs.

There was a two food/drink item limit or a $15 charge would be placed on each attendee. Oooh, I ordered two of the smallest thingsĀ because I was planning to eat at Shake Shack later. Still, the whole setting was very intimate. The stage was set up with music stands. I didn’t know what to expect for this show. I figured it couldn’t be a full production show, but was curious how they would perform.

At the Rose Parade and I talked with a Christian with a big sign and a pre-recorded message

Every year since I have moved to SoCal, I have always attended the Rose Parade. It’s a fun thing that I wanted to do since I was a kid and now that I live here, I make it a priority to attend every year. It’s fun and I like to just watch the floats, people watch and just see the excitement. But one of the things that I have adopted is to talk with the people who hold up the big Jesus signs.

You know who they are. Like the photo of the one on the right I took today. They hold these big signs with verses from the Bible that call for people to repent, follow Jesus or eternal damnation will happen.

I am fascinated by these people. One, they are very vocal and very loud. Is it good? Is it bad? I don’t know.

The second reason why I like them is because they got major balls to be so bold in faith like this. I have to talk to them. So I have in years past. I did it again today.
