This weekend I went on a mini road trip to Bloomington, Illinois to see Streetlight Manifesto’s The End of the Beginning tour. The show itself was incredible, and while I had to resist my inner-teenage desire to hit the moshpits, I still loved every second singing my heart out in the balcony. They played an excellent mix of new and old materials, and overall, I couldn’t have asked for a better night. Little did I know what Monday night had in store for us.
My friend Dan convinced me to stay in Illinois Monday night to watch the Blackhawks with everyone, and I am so thankful I did! There is nothing like celebrating a Stanley Cup victory like maniacally screaming and jumping up and down like savages with your friends. The above photo was taken prior to the win - trust me, we looked far more ecstatic after the win but were too busy celebrating to snap photos.
With Blackhawks on the brain, I decided that I wanted to update the home and lock screens on the my iPhone4, so I designed the above illustration because I couldn’t find one I liked. The image is available as an iPhone4 wallpaper and Facebook cover photo, and you can download them here.
Overall, I had an incredible weekend with great folks, and I’m excited to see what the rest of the summer has in store for us!
