Merry Christmas!! + New Most Prized Possession Photo Shoot (Spoiler: I got a new guitar for Christmas!)

Merry Christmas, fellow bloggers! I’m SOOO sorry I haven’t posted lately. I’ve been SUPER busy, and we’ll get to that in another post. Today, we’re just celebrating Christmas! And celebrating Christmas also means celebrating my new most prized possession *drumroll please* *dudududududududududududududududaaaaa*

A guitar! She’s beautiful. (P.S. In that photo, I forgot to take the tuner off 😊)When my family finished opening our gifts, my dad said “I think we’re missing one for Boogs,” and he went into his bedroom and came out about 30 seconds later with a gorgeous guitar with a silver bow on the neck. (oh, also, I’m “boogs.” It’s a nickname that my fam gave to me when I was like 3 years old because I “boogied” to music and stuff.) So, I freaked out, took it, and ran upstairs to play it. 5 minutes later, my dad came upstairs with my new pedal that he got me, and set it up and everything:

After I learned to use the pedal, my dad took the guitar downstairs and started adjusting it to my needs. I love my new guitar. It’s about 2 pounds lighter than my old one, and speaking of my old one, here’s a picture of the sisters together:

Sorry for the blurriness.Β 

My new guitar (the blue one) plays so much better than my old one, and my old one played excellently!

My family is very musical. My brother plays bass and percussion, my sister plays flute and piano, my dad plays bass and is in a band, and I play guitar and I am in two unofficial bands. (By unofficial, I mean both bands are managed by a music school and every 12 weeks we play a show with 3 songs. It’s not like we have REAL gigs. I mean, I’m in 6th grade!)

This photo shows her true colors, literally. It fades from silver to teal to blue, my favorite colors. Thanks, Mom and Dad!! πŸ™‚ it’s called “ocean fade metallic”

Did I mention that I also received 24 picks? It’s hard to choose a favorite.

It’s my favorite kind of pick, that thickness and shape. You may have noticed throughout this post that I like the color blue. My favorite color is teal, though. The ones in the picture are just the new ones. These picks will last me ten years or so…

That should sum up this post, but how did my Christmas go other than my guitar stuff? Amazing. Other than what I previously mentioned, I got a green and blue lava lamp (my favorite colors), water dance speakers (I asked for the lava lamp and the speakers and got them. I’m surprised.), my grandma got me a Trench CD (Twenty One Pilots) and a $10 iTunes gift card, my brother got me a harmonica set, my sister got me this galaxy rock thing, my parents also got me a HUGE windup snow globe (I’m obsessed with those things), I got socks, hats and gloves, and Sloggers mud boots which was also on my list and if I forgot anything else, oh well. πŸ™‚

I took this picture a few days before Christmas. I like the angle but you can’t see the star. Also, that wasn’t all of the presents.

It was again the best Christmas ever, as I’ve said for the past 3 years or so (well it would’ve been longer if four years ago when we lived in the RV, I wasn’t worried sick that Santa wasn’t going to come because we didn’t have a Christmas tree or a chimney. It was definitely the smallest Christmas ever that year, but it payed off.)(^^^^^^ have you read the post?)

How is/was your Christmas? Do you like music? Was this the best Christmas ever? Talk to me πŸ˜›

Sincerely,

Christina ❀

Imagine Dragons ORIGINS!

I’m surprised. Touring from 2015-2020(if they’re touring for their new album, then it would be 2019 and 2020.) They wrote their 2nd album Smoke + Mirrors and went on tour in 2015 and 2016, and wrote their 3rd album Evolve while on tour for Smoke + Mirrors. Then they toured for Evolve in 2017 and 2018 (my experience at my local concert for Evolve) and now, if they tour for their newest album Origins, that will add two more years of touring. But as of now, they haven’t released any tour dates. They are playing a few more shows in November and December, though. But there’s no chance I’m flying to Mexico or Vegas to see them.

So it’s out today! Whoo hoo! I don’t like it as much as Evolve, but that’s to be expected if I’ve only heard some songs once. But I’m loving Zero, Natural, and Machine! You should check them out! I also think that the names of the songs are getting cheezier, like “Love.” I mean, who would name their song “Love?!” *Imagine Dragons did,Β Christina!*

You should check out Imagine Dragons’ new album Origins, out 11/9/18. I don’t like it too much yet, but I’m trying to!

What’s your favorite band? Song? Do you like Imagine Dragons? Tell me!
