best weekend of my life. i think i did some growing up, and now i'm more in love. funny how that works.

no complaints, but it is nap time.

so the girl who has taken up my mind the last few months is moving back to Orlando this week. we've gotten so close, and i feel like things would have further progressed, if only she had a few more weeks here. now, this does not mean we're going to stop, but distance does take its toll on things. i'm just so nervous that i may lose her, but i guess that's only a chance of fate? sometimes, you can't control everything you want to. i just hope she feels the same every time i see her.

this may have gotten too pathetic/sappy. what i really mean is that i love the time we spent together and getting to know each other, and i can't wait until the next time i see her.

maybe that's a bit better.

yea, and if you ask if i love you, i'll lie through my teeth just to make me seem more mysterious.

i've almost died 4 times within 2 months. you think there would be some sort of wake up call to get my shit together.

but i'm a fuck up. and will continue to be just that until the day i die.

i need to dig myself out of this grave. i need to quit with all the death symbolism.
fuck off.

Not too sure if anyone out there cares, but if you'd like to pre-order my band's new EP, "A Change Of Scene", you can do so for only $4 at everyyou.bigcartel.com


still nervous/excited. still falling for you more and more each day.

it's pretty fucking depressing [01 Jul 2009|06:27pm]
to hear your parents say, "So she bailed on you?", when referring to the girl you like not coming over for a big dinner you were preparing for her for almost a week.

such is life.

so i spent a good amount of time today buying and preparing things for dinner tomorrow. i am cooking dinner for a girl who seems to have taken up my thoughts. i don't mind at all. she's great--sincere and sweet, funny and kind; an overall awesome girl. i think i've gotten lucky, but i may be speaking too soon. i never thought i'd be into someone so young, but we just have a ton in common. it's sort of weird, i guess?

so anyway, i'm making a dish i've never cooked before. i hope it goes over well!

i guess the whole point of this post is to just say i really like this girl.

things are starting to look up and come together.

- positive reactions from so many people about these songs makes me so surprised and so fulfilled. i wanted a record that people will sing-a-long to come years from now. a record i, myself, could enjoy in my car, driving home at 3 am. singing with every word and harmony. i've never been more proud of something i've done musically. i made this for my friends, and i think i've gotten the point across. now time for shows and touring.


- i dig this girl a lot. i can't remember the last time that someone i was into could keep me involved in a coversation til 5 in the morning. but i love every second of it and every minute we spend together. gonna end there before i jinx myself.

- got promoted at work. more money + more hours = a tired, but happy matt. i want some more tattoos and new gear, so this is a step in the right direction! i just fucking hate waking up at 4 am monday through friday.

i like having my time taken up. sorry i haven't been writing as much!

"It's the saddest part of my day, leaving you."

I don't know why or necessarily how to explain it, but seeing you always makes my day. I wish, for whatever reason, things could be different.

I'm sick of tearing out these pages full of letters that I'm saving for better days.

You sit there in your heartache
Waiting on some beautiful boy
To save you from your old ways
You play forgiveness
Watch it now, here he comes
He doesn't look a thing like Jesus
But he talks like a gentlemen
Like you imagined when you were young...

i have a heart that was created to love and care and laugh and share. and i finally get to use it on you.

it's weird how i have nearly everything in common with this one person. and i didn't light a single firework this whole trip. except for maybe last night.

this entry is so literal and metaphorical. not sure if that's allowed, but fuck it. i'm 21 now.

I don't want to be anywhere else than by your side right now.

but tommorow will have to do. I just hope you feel the same.

haven't updated in quite sometime. maryland has been fucking awesome. recordings are sounding great. songs are coming together. tour from june 20th-july 4th. first show june 19th at the talent farm.

i had a bit of a diabetic episode yesterday. woke up delirious, passed out. fractured my nose on the corner of the kitchen table at the apartment we're staying at. seizure. blood everywhere. i kinda wish i was awake to see all of it. ambulance came. apparently, the paramedics said, "are you ready to ride in the ambulance?" in typical matt burns fashion, i replied, "i'm stoked." so 4 hour hospital visit, followed by delicious chicken at popeyes. dangerous summer show last night. awesome seeing good friends again.

Picture evidence:

so now we're at the apartment on a saturday afternoon. the a/c broke this morning. it's hot as hell. i'm going to be eating healthier this week. we found a whole foods. fuck yes. situps and pushups are part of an everyday routine.

i've been talking to someone a lot more as the days continue. and i love it. she makes me smile a lot. i don't really remember the last time someone made me do that. i can't wait to get home and see her.

life has been treating me well lately. turning 21 next sunday. orlando party all this weekend. if you read this and are around, you're invited. come hanggggg!!!

ps - star trek AND sushi tonight? hopefully!
