It’s the 5th anniversary since I went to this concert. The concert that converted me, that changed my life for the better, that made me into a fully-fledged member of the E Street Nation. I’m so thankful to my friend Alex for asking me to go with her after her ex-boyfriend ended their relationship… to think I almost said no!
From my personal blog.
Bruce and his music have been there for me during some serious milestones in my life - I met my boyfriend of the front steps of the rock and roll hall of fame and Dancing in the Dark was being played from the loud speakers outside, I will never forget that moment because his music hits home whenever I hear it. I heard the song Bobby Jean the day I knew I wouldn’t be seeing my boyfriend for a long time, and was so comforting for a moment in my life that was very difficult. And my cousin’s mother went to school with Bruce - she still has the class picture with him in it. Bruce will definitely be a big part of my life…I’ll make sure he’s played at my wedding, I’ll make sure he’s played at my funeral.
Anonymous asked: I dream about meeting a boy who love bruce's music the way i do. a boy with soft hands and a raspy voice. we can take the car to wherever as long as he put his arm around me and sing along to thunder road with me. i don't care what he looks like or where he's from. i just wan't a boy who understand this longing in my chest. the hunger that stirs every time i hear a bruce's voice. i wan't him to take my hand and start dancing with me every time we hear a springsteen song. i hope he'll find me.
Thank you my brother for bringing Bruce into my life!
It`s not just music - It`s a confession, a religion, an attitude to life!
I got this tattoo two weeks ago. I was told by many I would regret it but whenever I look down at my wrist I can’t help but smile and hum ‘Badlands.’ My mom raised me a Bruce fan from when I was very little and right now I am in college and striving to do amazing things in my life. I look at this as a constant reminder not only to achieve my big dream in life but just to take advantage of the little things every day. I am guilty of saying that I want to do all these things but never actually doing anything. I want to take advantage of the opportunities I have been presented with in life and do things I’ve always wanted to do. As Bruce says in Badlands, “Spend your life waiting for a moment that just don’t come, well don’t waste your time waiting.” It’s my little reminder to live actively and achieve all dreams big and little, and not to sit around and watch my life pass before my eyes.
