Well hello long lost friend! How have you been? I've been great!
Seriously, judging by my post count alone, I knew I wasn't meant to be a true all-the-time blogger. But 4 months is a bit excessive on my part. As Matt Wertz sings, "I'm falling (fell) off the face of the earth".
Tons has happened since January in the hockey world. I know I can't cover everything from the Sabres demise to the Stanley Cup Finals, so no trying there. I do know that at the beginning of the Finals, I was not interested in the Red Wings and Penguins playing again. I wasn't all that into playoffs this year, maybe because of the Sabres, maybe because of all my school things, who knows. I'm really not a Detroit fan even with their skill, and I've never been a huge fan of Pittsburgh (though if I wanted someone to win, it was them). But game 6 of the finals turned things around, and we know how it goes from there.
So now, I think that somewhere, hockey got pushed to the back burner. After going to a campus activities conference in Nashville in February, my involvement at school has gotten crazy. Everyone knows how much I love music and I now am the Nitelife Coordinator - booking the bands and musicians for campus. Somehow after that I also became the Spring Event Chair, which means I run/oversee the planning for the big event on campus; last year was Stephen Lynch, and we've had Cartel, Lewis Black, Gavin DeGraw, Sugarcult, Adam Sandler, etc in the past. Don't get me wrong, I love hockey, but with all of that plus actual classes kind of took over.
The end of the hockey season, sadly, led me back here. Also the fact that I reduced the amount of Gmail accounts I had, and checked the account for this blog for the very first time. To everyone that emailed me, I apologize- I'm not an ignoring jerk, I swear!
Hopefully we'll get news throughout this summer to keep lil' BAGMG updated plus the awards, the draft, but if not, I still will have things to talk about. Somehow.
I'm gone for this week - SAB retreat up in the ROC until Wednesday, working merch for Tyrone Wells who's opening for Better Than Ezra at the Square (everyone should come visit and enjoy a great show!), then other odd job-y things. I'll probably be back for the draft and darft party which'll be fun. I'm working merch for a concert at Xtreme Wheels that night which means I can't enjoy the full festivities at the Albright Knox but I hope to see everyone there!
