Meet Allie!

Hey there lovely Archies! My name is Allison, but a lot of you may know me as Allie! I am so excited to finally be blogging again. Some of you may know that I use to run the site All Things Archie, well our site isn't running anymore and I was taking a break from blogging, but I really decided that I missed it and wanted to get back into it!

I'm currently 17 years old and I live in the Chicago area. No I do not live in the city, I'm actually from the suburbs about 45 minutes from downtown, I WISH I lived in the city. Since I'm a high school senior I will be heading off to college this fall. I'm not sure on where yet, but I've been accepted to all of the schools I applied, and I really want to go to Belmont in Nashville! I want to major in Music Business and Communications. I think it would be really cool to either be a tour manager or manager of an artist, or own my own record label. I always thought I would go into music, especially musical theater since it was my biggest passion growing up, it still is, but I realized performance is not what I want to go to school for. Speaking of theater and music I am involved in the top Chamber Orchestra, top Choirs including the top mixed choir and chamber choir, which is madrigals during the holiday season, I am a member of Tri-M which is the Music Honors Society, Drama Club, and Christian Youth Theater. I think it's safe to say that music and theater is and always will be a big part of my life.

Anyway, speaking of my love for music, David is my favorite artist, obviously. I have been fortunate to see him 6 times; 3 times here in the Chicago area, and 3 times I was able to travel to see him. Each of those times I saw him were some of the best days and experiences of my life. I have seen him on the Demi tour in Chicago, the Rockford, IL show, the Waukeagan, IL Christmas from the Heart show, Six Flags New England Ticket to Ride, Motab Christmas Special, and on his My kind of Christmas tour in Ventura, CA. Of those 6 times of seeing him I met him twice at ticket to Ride and in Ventura. I've been fortunate to be told by him that I whistled better than him, he stopped and pushed away his security just to sign my book, and I've sang with him. I think singing "Lean on Me" at the Ventura VIP was my favorite memory.

I became a fan back in the idol days, but I didn't become a huge fan till his performance of "Imagine". I always liked him, but it wasn't till that performance that I really became a big fan. My best friend at the time came up to me in class the day after David sang "Imagine" and he said "Hey you know that David Archuleta guy you like, did you see his amazing performance last night?! I hope one day I can sing as good as him". And then he showed me the video of it on his iPOD. Lol and in that moment we made a competition of it to see who could vote for David more, lol. I would always win :P

Besides being a fan of David I'm a huge fan of Demi Lovato and Bruno Mars. I've met both of them before too! I love their music so much, among other artists like Kelly Clarkson, John Mayer, Adele, Taylor Swift, Jonas Brothers, We the Kings, and Lady Gaga.

I also LOVE making videos. Maybe you have seen some of my videos, including the Thank You video for David that so many of you were a part of, my stop motion videos, or my covers! And I'm also thankful for all of the friends I have made through David including best friends! But, anyway I think I've said enough lol. I would love to get to know each and everyone! I'm a talkative person who loves getting to know new people.
