*this is in reply to his post you can read it
here* As I read your blog a few things came to mind. 1. You are one of the most brilliant men I have ever met. 2) You are so incredibly talented it’s quite ridiculous. 3) Your love for music and us (your fans) is beyond amazing. & 4) My god you do know how to make me smile, laugh and cry at the same time. I wanted to reply to you because your “Novel” kinda inspired. See I’m not musically talented and never have I wanted to be in your shoes. I’m a writer and a listener. And your voice and the rest of Honor Society have inspired me so much in the last two years. I remember when I heard you guys were headlining the Jonas tour and I was like who are these dudes. My cousin Fabiola, turned me to your music; right after I heard See U in the Dark and Where are you Now I knew I had to see y’all live. And we did just that. On August 2009 we saw you perform at Anaheim and that was the last day I remember ever being a Jonas teenie. I was hooked on another band. Musically and Lyrically y’all rocked my world. After that day all I knew was that I had fallen in love with something new, something different, something exciting. I saw y’all again a week later at the Grammy’s museum and every moment or performance after that kept getting better and better. And I don’t think y’all have ever not performed great. And Sunday was nothing but the best concert. You guys always out do yourselves and I find that incredible<3 I had so much more to say earlier when I bawled on the metro; but for now know that this fan loves you so much. I love that you guys are transforming into even greater musicians. The four of you have always been four my favorite people ever. I can’t wait to see y’all again real soon. By the way I thank you for your “Go get em” tweet for making me feel confident the day of my job interview; I feel like that tweet made it all the difference and because of that I have my first job that got me to your show and my new favorite tee and sweater. Love you Mike. And I hope you actually do read this if not well that’s fine too. Love always, a fan who will travel on the bus or ditch school just to see y’all -Vanessa Dec 21
My meet & greet picture with the gents (December 17th 2011). The final show of their Rock the Red Kettle tour was possibly one of the greatest shows the gents have ever put on. They never fail to rock out and bring down the house. There wasn’t a moment where I wasn’t singing along or not dancing. There’s a little story behind this picture. So I hugged Alex he said something like “Did you have fun?” And I just remember stuttering something like “Yea” then I when in for the hug for Mike and that’s when it got awkward, I usually lean left but Mike did the same thing. If I would have kept leaning in our faces would have bumped into each other. Anyways we had to take our picture but then I hugged Jay and Andy. I think Andy recognized me but since there was no time to converse with him, he asked if we’d see each other again and I was like of course. Then I had to leave but they were exiting us through a door I had never seen, I basically looked like a confused idiot for a minute haha. Anyways I love my picture even if I don’t have my arm around Mike. And I also love Mike a little more after Saturday night.

It’s that time of year again. Where I begin to list everything I am thankful for, here it goes…
My Jonas boys, I don’t think you will ever understand how much I love these boys or how important they will be to me. They saved my life. Once a Jonas fan always a Jonas fan. Forever will I go out of my way to see these boys and support them. This year I met Nick and I can honestly say that after almost 5 years of waiting for that hug it was well worth the wait. I also met Joe again, though I’m not the biggest fan of his new music, I am so proud of him. Someday I’ll meet Kevin and then I can die happily. My gents from Honor Society, for the last two years y’all have kept sane. Seriously have had some of the most fun going to see y’all. I’m so incredibly proud each one of you. Thank you for doing what you do. Much love and Much duh. HS Crew forever! The very adorable guys of Allstar Weekend; a fan for not even a year. But man have y’all made your mark on me. Crazy how I judged y’all from the start. But then I saw you perform live and that changed it all. You guys are incredible. Made my year to see y’all at Chain, my first actual ADUB concert. Thank you for making my birthday month what it was. Honestly will cherish those days for the rest of my life. Especially seeing Cam in a dress and having Zach hit me with a mic stand. Love y’all. The sweetest dudes ever from Action Item, I don’t think I have ever met any nicer guys. You guys are the best. your music opened up something inside I had forgotten existed. You healed my broken heart. Can’t to see y’all again. My wonderful cousin Fabiola, you are my best friend. The person I do absolutely everything with. I love you so much. I’m glad we like the bands we do. And I’m glad we are equally as insane. Thank you for being you. Never let the fangirl inside of you die. Then we’d have no life haha. Love you Fabs, I don’t think I’ll never not love you! My best friends, Stephanie and Melissa, I love you two so much. I will never be able to show you how much I care for you. And how much I’m thankful that you two are in my life. Thank you for putting up with me. <3 Daniela and Catalina, I love your crazy asses so much. You never let me down. Dani as insane as you are, you remind me to be myself and that I can always count on you to make me smile. Thank you for being there for me. Cat, gosh I don’t think I will ever be able to thank you enough for always listening to me. You are and forever will be the greatest most beautiful person ever. I love you so much and thank you for everything. My mom as much as she never fails to prove me right, if it weren’t for everything she does for me. I wouldn’t be me. And y’all wouldn’t have me here. She’s something else that woman, I love her. My dad so thankful that he’s there for me to hear me when I can’t seem to bitch at anyone else. He seriously is the greatest Dad ever. And I’m so happy that he’s my dad. I love him so much. My nina that woman goes out of her way for me. She’s like my second mom. I will forever her owe her so much. She’s the greatest thing to have ever happened to me. Albert, Evelyn, Ramiro, Alexandria, Emerson and Eddie. Friends that for the last year have been so incredible to me. Thank you for being you. I love y’all. Thank you for the memories. To anyone else who I missed. Thank you for putting up with my insanity and my fangirling. 2011 so far has been amazing. And I cannot wait until 2012. By the way I’m thankful for this moment. Right now. Where I’m crying thinking of how much I take life for granted. Thinking of how much I miss my grandparents and others that aren’t here with me anymore. I’m thankful for the life that I am living. The job I found, the school I struggle with, and the future that is up ahead. Thank you my wonderful gods for giving me this. Thank you. -V Nov 24
oh and before i forget.
if and when i get paid next week i’m buying my Roxy ticket to see the gents. i can’t wait to see them. i miss them so much. -V Nov 17
So much happened!!
Getting my picture with Noyes. Zach joining HWE on stage. Zach apologizing for not wanting to interrupt one of the bands performing. (we had asked for a picture) Zach remembering who I was. AI making me tear up while performing Defenseless Nathan getting up on that stage. Zach making the shout out video for Rachel Nate and Zach interchanging “I Love You”s MB RTing my tweet All these wonderful things; my fangirl heart almost gave out.
Last night will be a night to remember. Forever.
I still can’t get over last night!
Tonight at the Roxy in Los Angeles, Ca, Action Item brought to us their first ever headlining tour, The Stronger The Love Tour! With opening acts including some dude who’s performance I missed, the awesome guys of Hollywood Ending, the beautiful Miss Katelyn Tarver, and these kids called Burnham (yea sorry I only like HWE and KT the other ones I wasn’t really diggin’) Well as the afternoon unfolded I was expecting to see familiar faces like Allstar Weekend guys and the Honor Society guys. Oh and of course Drake Bell who had tweeted AI that he was going. DB was there. I just never saw him.
Anyways here are a few pictures with some of my favorite people….
With Alex Noyes from Honor Society; when I saw him and Mike Bruno walk into the Roxy tonight I totally fangirled! I had this huge ass smile on my face! Sadly I didn’t get a picture with Mike but he did retweet/reply to me on twitter so that kinda made up for that! I cannot wait til Dec. 18th!!
With Zach Porter from Allstar Weekend; I kinda assumed/hoped he would be at the show today. And he was! When I got the picture we had a quick conversation, he asked me how I was like and I was like I’m good how are you and he’s like I’m good too; anyways he recognized me as the girl who he hit with mic stand!! My inner fangirl jumped for joy haha. We also talked about that for a bit too!
Let Me Start off by saying…THAT I STILL CANNOT BELIEVE I HAVE A PICTURE WITH NATHAN FREAKEN DARMONDY!! haha Serious shit, when he tweeted something about Hwood I was like, NO WAY he’s coming I just know it. And then he walked right pass me and Fabiola and I started hyperventilating when I saw his dreads! Seriously! I still can’t believe he was there. By the way Fabiola recorded when he came over and said hi to Zach..again my inner fangirl was pretty happy/shocked.
Yep. Tonight was Pretty freaken amazing.
As you can tell I didn’t get any pictures with AI or the HWE guys because me and Fabiola left early; we were freaken starving!! Plus if we wouldn’t have left early we wouldn’t have gotten the picture with Nathan and a little video for a friend from Zach. -V Nov 6
^THE GREATEST WAY TO END TONIGHT!
I fangirled so hard in the bus, on the ride to in n out haha I seriously couldn’t believe that he RT’d/replied! I still can’t!
BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE!!!!!!!
I’m sitting at Starbucks just scrolling through tumblr and drinking my soy cinnamon dolce latte..
waiting for the clock to strike 5ish so I can walk to the theater. anyways i love this Starbucks (the one in LA Live, by Staples Center) it holds many memories… like getting the Taylor Swift tickets from cambio or getting randomly asked if we would like to see Honor Society perform at the Grammy Museum back in 2009! i love this place!
oh and I’m here because I have some kind of job training at the theater!
I’m sitting here next to some random stranger, listening to my iPod, to Honor Society’s new EP, A Tale Of Risky Business Part 2 to be exact. This is probably the 4th/5th time this morning that this playlist repeats itself; and I’m mouthing the words along and what not.
I get to Gentleman After Dark (one of my favorite songs of the HS Mix Tape) and I’m listening to Mike’s voice and relistening to those sexy ass lyrics. And I begin to think of how I wish I had a boy I my life. I’ve been thinking a lot about this, I’m not sure if it’s because of my frustrations or because I genuinely am lonely. I’ve always said I don’t need a boy. But it would be nice to at least have a possibility. After I start wanting a boy, One Of A Kind (this is My song, although I think the original version we got for free was the best!) and I listen to how this guy in this lyrical story will be there for his girl no matter what compared to the other guy. This song both makes my heart smile and break. It makes me smile because the gents believe in something that I’ve always dreamed of. It breaks my heart mainly because I’m alone and none of the possibilities (boys) that I had before were ever close to being this. This song is just a lovely reminder of the hopeless romantic in me. (And I’m not being sarcastic) As the rest of the EP plays I jam out to each song or instrumental, thinking of how I miss the gents. How I would kill to be in NYC instead of this stupid bus, heading to La Verne. Oh gosh, then there’s Run For Your Money..I truly love this song. I remember hearing it at the PPP back in June before the WYA tour, standing around MB’s car and just tapping my foot and getting incredibly excited for tour and the new music. When I hear This Bed In Ocean my heart melts, it reminds me of how far the gents have come and how far they still have to go. <3. Every time Wherever You Are comes on I remember seeing them live and how badly I need them to go on tour! Which by the way made me very happy to know they are! By the way Find You In The Dark makes me giddy, I don’t know why but I really love it! And to finish off the wonderful EP, there’s Hurricane, oh my this such a good song, both lyrically and musically. I can’t get over how awesome this song is. The unnamed songs and instrumentals are equally as moving or great. Just didn’t play while I wrote this, this morning.
What I think about on the bus ride to school:
i just sent a message to andy lee on tumblr; i wonder if he’ll see it/read it. haha
most of my posts lately have been all about allstar weekend.
not that it bothers me but i’m sure it bothers others. well at least those that see me on their dashes. but honestly that’s all that has been going on in my life. like yea. oh but HONOR SOCIETY IS RELEASING THEIR EP ON THE 25TH!! WHICH MEANS THAT I SHOULD BE GETTING MY PRE-ORDERS ON FRIDAY!! not sure why i wrote that in caps but whatever I’m excited! -V Oct 16
ok seriously two honor society gents (MB replied to me yesterday) in the same week? thank you alexander noyes for making my night yea going to sleep with a huge ass smile on my face -V Oct 13
