So i’m uploading this picture of most of wristbands and i’m going to explain the meaning of most of them and the memorys they hold.
starting from the top left. The Fearless Records wristband i got with my copy of Punk Goes Pop 4 which i got for preordering cause i’m a badass.
The next wristand the yellowy one is one my parents got me from Barbados where they went to a wedding.
Next is my camo wristband with my name on it. That one holds a memory of a good day out when i was a kid with my dad and his ex wife before things turned bad.
Now we get to the silly bands which will always remind me of the charity shop i work in and people who work there because i actually got them in the shop.
k down to my other wrist and back to the left side you can just about see a pink thing. That is a long thin piece of pink material i found which i wear all the time to show my supprt for cancer research. It is the charity i support the most because i know people who have died from it and my girlfriend had cancer but because it was caught early enough she survived after some treatment. I also know someone who is suffering from cancer right now and so yeah i don’t want to get to into it ok.
Next is my yellow and red studded wristband. That one my parents got me from Spain because they know how much i like my studded belts and they thought Connor will really like this and i do :)
ok after that are some beads that mean absolutely nothing. i got them in New Look cheap as chips :P
right next to them which you can’t see at all which is retarded but anyways is a bracelet i got when i went camping with some friends for a week in Cornwall. It sounds like a pretty crappy camping trip but it wasn’t. One of the good memorys i have from that trip was we visited a town called Newquay and there was a guy playing guitar on the street for peoples change. What we did is unheard of where i live, the guys wanted to wander round, i didn’t really feel like it and neither did the girls so what we did was we sat next to the guitar guy and made requests. It was amazing me and girls just chilling and singing along to the songs the guy played. Another memory, good in some ways bad in others, you’ll understand after i explain. So it was the evening and we had all gone into our own tents and some of the guys were talking. Next thing you know one of the guys slags off one of the girls and all the girls hear. Then the girls get out of there tent and have a go at him from outside the guys tent. This girl was pretty upset so she came over to my tent to ask for a hug and just to talk for a while. Of course i ablidged. i was kinda shocked and touched by this that she had chosen me to come too. But i must say what the guy said was pretty bad. So now you know why its a good/bad memory. The whole camping trip as a whole was awesome though.
Now onto my VersaEmerge (VE) wristband. It reads Vultures Unite (meaning fans of VE unite obviously). That i got when i saw VE live. They were the first proper band i saw live and is actually the best gig i’ve ever been too. It is a good memory i share with my dad after he got divorced from his ex wife and it was a time that i could to spend some quality time with my dad. Funny thing is VE weren’t even headlining that gig, they were the major support band for We The Kings who i wasn’t even bothered about seeing tbh. What was even more amazing about this memory is that the VE drummer threw out his drumsticks and my dad actually caught one for me!! which i love him to death for :) I also discovered 2 more bands that night I See Stars and a local band All Forgotten, i am sad to say that All Forgotten broke up which sucks cause they were amazing. But yeah best gig EVEEEEERRRR!!
Now last but not least my Keep A Breast Foundation (KAB) wristband which reads I <3 Boobies. Thats the wristband i always get asked about. KAB is a organization whos mission is to help eradicate breast cancer by exposing young people to methods of prevention, early detection and support. They go to a lot of big gigs and festivals to target young people, infact they were at Download Festival this year. I have one of their wristbands to show my support :)
So thats it, all my wristbands and bracelets explained. If you got this far i’m pretty amazed as i did waffle on a bit. so if your reading this why not do the same and explain your wristbands and bracelets. I rathered enjoyed it.
But anyway have a nice day ;)
