Daily Blog

Going to try to write on this every day, it is basically just a series of my daily thoughts on life.

Just a quick announcement.

Ok, I'm tired, I'm sick, I want to go to bed.
I have to say that things have been amazing lately and it was nice to take a break from rocking out, but tomorrow we start song writing again, if I don't feel like dying (and maybe even if I do).


that is all.

Great Show

Hey everyone, last night was our big show at Bricktown Live in Downtown OKC! It was a blast! The whole band had a ton of energy and everyone had a good time. Everyone who had heard us play before said it was the best show they have heard us ever play and the crowd really seemed to enjoy it as well and that's all that really matters!

Just have to wait until Tuesday to see if we made it to the finals of the competition. In all honesty, as good and fun as the show was last night, if we don't make it to the finals, I don't think it will bother me at all. We played the best show we possibly could and that matters more than winning a competition.

After party after the show was pretty amazing as well! Got alot of good bro time in with friends I haven't seen in too long and really connected with a special girl.

Overall last night was probably the best night I've had all year.

You're on in 3...2...1...

Hey everyone, second day back from my lengthy hiatus! The next few days are going to be some crazy ones, but I have a feeling they are going to be some of the best of my life, ones that I'm going to have memories of forever.

Tomorrow is the biggest, most important show of my band's career thus far and I'm starting to get that feeling in the pit of my stomach. That kind of building anticipation that puts a smile on your face when you think about it. Tomorrow I get to do what I believe I was destined to do, I get to get on stage in front of people who came specifically to see us, and I get to share with them the passion that is my music. That is truly the most magical thing about performing on stage. Everyone can see the small emotions in your face when you sing the songs you wrote, that mean enough to you that you play them for the crowd.

There are no nerves however, even though this show could either be the end of the road in the competition and the starting line for a new road to the big time, or the gateway to the finals where we continue down the highway to glory. No matter what the outcome of this, It'll still be enough, because it'll be a ride that is fun as hell. Plus how could you not have fun with these guys:

By the way this was in the year 2009. yeah it's that old

But it would be cool to make the finals.....

The Return of the Blogger

Alright everyone. I know its been awhile and I had promised a long time ago to keep this going, but things got out of hand. BUT, I had recent inspiration to return to this blog and give you all an insight on what is going on in my head.

Lately things have been crazy and I'm just starting to realize that over the past year, I have changed and grown more as a person than I thought was possible. Recent events have enlightened me to the fact that I'm growing up. I know, I know, Chase you're 20 years old, don't you think you should have grown up a long time ago? Answer- PROBABLY

I will admit to everyone who reads this that around the time I was writing this blog last year that I didn't treat people, primarily girls that I took out, with the kind of respect that they deserve. I will admit that I was a heart breaker extraordinaire. Giving girls false hopes and dating several at the same time without them knowing. It was WRONG.

But over the past year I have learned my lesson and it will never happen again as long as I can help it.

It takes a broken heart to see the shattered pieces you broke yourself

Day 4

It's been quite awhile since I've been on here and added a new post, but I decided that I needed to keep it going.

Lately I have felt like I am under an intense amount of pressure and stress. Enrolling for the next semester of college, working two jobs with a combined 60 hours a week, and trying to keep my band going has killed me (thankfully not literally...yet).

But, at the same time I can't complain when it comes to being happy. Even with all of this stress weighing me down, I still have a smile on my face. I find time somewhere to go for a run or play around with my guitar. I find the time after work at night to spend time with my special girl or hang out with my friends and see my family.

Those are the moments that I treasure the most and those are the moments that get me through all of the stress and lift the weight off of my shoulders, so that I can get to it all over again with a smile.

Day 3

Over the past few weeks I have really been asking myself who I am as a person. What am I supposed to be doing in life, you know? I believe that everyone has one purpose in life. However, their purpose is decided by what road they choose to take in life.

A couple weeks ago I was completely let down by something that happened to my band and myself. I thought that we were going to finally get our shot to show the world not only what we were made of, but to show the world how much playing music really means to us. Long story short we were passed up on this chance unfortunately. The chance was going to be given to us through a competition that we did not win. I was completely crushed. I started asking myself how talented I really was, and how talented I THOUGHT I was. I began to question my priorities. I started worrying about what would happen if my passion didn't become my purpose. I almost gave up on my dream. That was until I listened to one of my band's own songs written by my best friend.

"When all that matters is the time right now, Forget tomorrow, just Live for now"

These immortal words are lyrics from the chorus of one of the very songs that I play. These words were written by my best friend when I was worried about my future, after I learned that he was going to be moving halfway across the country. This was the first time that I questioned myself and he helped me out of it. After hearing this song again, it reminded me that no matter what kind of obsticals I face in life, I should never worry about what is to become of me, when I should be focusing on right here and right now. A new hope was given to me by my best friend Nathan from halfway across our nation, through music. This is how I decided that no matter what, Music is my passion, Music is my life, and Playing music is my Purpose.

Thanks Nate, I love you man.

Day 2

Everyone loves to start off a day with a laugh. This morning as I joined a new fan group on FaceBook.com I got my first laugh of the day and I decided that I thought it was funny enough to share it with you. Being a college student myself, I thought this was exceptionally humorous because it reminded me of something that I would do. This story that I read on the FaceBook.com fan page, is about a college chemistry student who answered a question that was proposed by their proffessor, on whether they thought that Hell was endothermic (Absorbs Heat) or exothermic (Asorbs Heat).

To view this just click on the link that I have posted here and then click Info on the tab on the fan page to read this funny story:
