Thinking good things about yourself is hard but it will make you feel better so please give it a go, for the sake of spreading positivity.

ugh sorry i postponed answering this, i do that sometimes when the question is not easy….

1. if i need to do something, i’ll do it, even if it’s hard. if i need to wake up at five am, i will, i get shit done when it’s important.
2. i used to have horrible social anxiety but i’ve got a lot better with it, and now i actually do my best to stand up for myself and people around me. it makes me really proud when a fellow student thanks me for defending them against an asshole oppressive teacher, especially because it’s not easy for me.
3. i make  good ice coffee.
4. i can handle personal talk, you can tell me all kinds of stuff and i won’t ask you to keep it to yourself. i’m rather open person myself.
5. i think i have a pretty quick wit. at least i find myself funny. that’s something!

I have two moods 

One is highly sophisticated intellectual who goes into complex thoughts and is always moody and deep

the other is an immature 5 year old that doesn’t know how to control herself or her language or her actions

there is no inbetween

Anonymous said: what precisely patti played? nobody publishes or updates setlists anymore

i didn’t get the setlist from this gig either, but songs i remember: she started with redondo beach, and after that i’m not 100% about the order but at least: april fool, dancing barefoot, beneath the southern cross (dedicated to johnny winter), blakean year, ghost dance (this one she dedicated to the victims of the malaysian airlines flight 17),  banga, gloria, rock and roll nigger, because the night, people have the power, pissing in the river.

mistymountainhopscotch replied to your post: “i saw patti smith for the third time today. i had a print of an…”:
I saw Bob Dylan a couple years ago. I also didn’t care for his setlist, but seeing him boogie around the stage and being in his presence was one of the greatest experiences of my life. I would desperately love to see Patti.

yes, i agree completely. this was the second time i saw dylan, the firs one was back in 2008 when i has just finished the first year of high school, and back then the though of that gig and bob dylan himself pretty much saved me through that year. i liked the set of that gig a lot more, but on both of these concerts his presence was the most important thing.
i hope you’ll see patti soon. she’s touring a lot, and after years of waiting she did four concerts in finland during one year, so it really is possible ! she’s an amazing performer, lights up the whole place with her energy, draws everybody in, fans or not, and makes you tingle from head to toes.
