Screaming Fidelities

This fan has her own Dashboard Confessional to give

"The truth is, the people that love us are very vocal about it," you told me. "The people that don't love us are very vocal about it. I'm not trying to be liked by everybody. That's garbage. I'm too thrilled and happy getting to have my dream job. I'm not going to waste my time feeling bad that somebody doesn't like that I have my dream job. I'm just a lucky guy, you know? Not everybody likes a lucky guy."

Jealousy is an ugly thing, I agree. And if people misunderstand what you're trying to do -- and dismiss you for having something of substance to say -- well, that's their problem.

"It's not really my job to clear up people's misconceptions of me," you agreed. "It's just my job to be me. I like what I do, and I have a lot of fans that like what I do, and I keep doing it truly from my heart."

Wow. I couldn't have said it better myself.

Anyway, I need to go now. Deadlines call. But I wish you the best of luck on the tour this summer. Maybe we can hang out sometime. I promise not to be a goon. Well, maybe.

xoxoxo,

Annie Zaleski
