Blog of Rachel Barber. 25. Overeducated bartender. Compulsive dreamer. Obsessive to the nth degree. I like stories, rock n' roll and driving around.

Just found out when I am graduating - FINALLY.

September 10th is the big day. I get to accept my diploma on the same stage I once saw Eddie Vedder play on. This pleases me.

In contrast to manning-the-old-barricades ‘s sunny blue skies.

Brian Fallon

It is 3 years to the day since I first heard this man’s voice. It altered my life quite a bit, in obvious and not-so-obvious ways.
It’s been an interesting ride, and not a lot of it would have been possible if my obsession with his band hadn’t dragged me away from the black dog and back into enjoying things again.
So consider this the Fallon-versary.
