Waterparks are currently out, playing the final date of the final Warped Tour. We checked in with them to see how their days out on Warped have been going during their hometown show in Houston, Texas. We aren't sure which member wrote this diary- just kidding it's Awsten, obviously. Over to Awsten:

6:36AM: I AM AWAKE. 

8:05AM: I AM AWAKE FOR REAL THIS TIME. IT’S TIME TO WAKE MY PALS AND GET COFFEE. COFFEE IS PRIORITY NUMBER ONE IN THE MORNING BECAUSE OTHERWISE I’LL FEEL LIKE GARBAGE AND PROBABLY BE CRANKY, BUT I WOULDN’T KNOW FOR SURE BECAUSE I NEVER LET IT GO THAT FAR. I CARE ABOUT FRIENDSHIP. 

10:00AM: WE ARE AT STARBUCKS. THIS IS A SUPER CONVENIENT DAY TO BE DOING THIS BECAUSE I GET TO PLUG MY HAIR DYE; THAT JUST CAME OUT OFFICIALLY THIS MORNING. NICE. KNIGHT BRIGHT PURPLE. NOW I’M TRYING TO MAKE MUSIC VIDEO EDITS. IT’S MAINLY JUST COLORING THINGS AT THIS POINT BECAUSE I’VE GOT A VERY SPECIFIC VISION FOR IT IN MY HEAD AND IT’S CLOSE. EXCELLENT. 

12:13PM: I AM SITTING IN OUR VEHICLE RN TYPING THIS. MY MOM AND HER FRIEND ARE ON THE COUCH ACROSS FROM ME BECAUSE AIR CONDITIONING IS NICE. I AM A SWEET BOY SON. MY MOM SAYS SHE WANTS TO SEE WITH CONFIDENCE, STATE CHAMPS, PALAYE ROYALE, DON BROCO (“DON BROCK-O”), AND BASICALLY EVERYONE ELSE SHE SEES IN ROCK SOUND. I’M GONNA ASK HER OPINIONS ON EVERYONE AND THEN NOT SHARE.  

12:50PM: TEI CLASS IS STARTING IN TEN. I THREW RAISINS AT PEOPLE YESTERDAY AND DREW THEM. I LIKE DRAWING THEM SO I THINK I MIGHT DO THAT AGAIN TODAY. EITHER WAY LUCAS WANTS ME TO FIGURE THAT OUT PRETTY QUICK BC WE’RE SUPPOSED TO WALK OVER THERE. IT’S SO HOT. UGH. IT TURNS OUT HUMIDITY IS ACTUALLY AMAZING FOR MY VOICE THOUGH SO THAT’S SWEET. I LIKE NOT STRAINING WHEN I SING. 

2:00PM: TEI CLASS IS OVER AND WE’RE DOING THE MEET AND GREET IN LIKE 20 MINUTES. THAT’S GONNA HAPPEN FOR AN HOUR BECAUSE THEY’VE LIMITED HOW LONG WE CAN BE OUT THERE BECAUSE IN 2016 WE WERE DOING THEM FOR LIKE 3 HOURS A DAY. ALSO IF WE DID THAT WITH THIS YEAR’S SCHEDULE WE WOULD DIE. OH YEAH, YESTERDAY SOME DUDE WAS SQUEEZING THE SHIT OUT OF GEOFF AND I’S BUTTS WHICH WAS NOT TIGHT AND I THINK IS TECHNICALLY ASSAULT. EITHER WAY, MEET AND GREET SOON. 

4:00PM: I AM NOW WARMING UP FOR THE SHOW. I FUCKING HATE COCONUT OIL VERY MUCH BUT BRADLEY FROM EMAROSA INSISTS IT DOESN WONDERS FOR YOUR VOICE TO PUT IT IN TEA SO I’VE BEEN DOING THAT EVERY DAY AND IT TASTES FUCKING AWFUL. IT’S HIGH KEY HARD TO FINISH AND I ALMOST NEVER DO, BUT IT MAKES YOUR VOCAL CORDS ALL SLIPPERY AND LUBRICATED WHICH IS GOOD FOR SINGING. THE THINGS I DO FOR LOVE. 

5:50PM: HI. SHOW RULED. MISSED THE TEXAS BABES. BUT NOW WE’RE GOING STRAIGHT FROM THE SHOW TO GO DO AN ACOUSTIC SET FOR THIS ANTI-DRUG GROUP CALLED FEND. WE DO THAT EVERY DAY BUT IT’S NOT NORMALLY DIRECTLY AFTER THE SET SO I’M ABOUT TO FEEL LIKE A DEAD PERSON BUT IT’S STILL TIGHT. I LIKE WHEN PEOPLE ARE LOUD AT THOSE BECAUSE IT MAKES IT FEEL LESS LIKE I’M PERFORMING AT A HIGH SCHOOL TALENT SHOW WHERE THEY’RE JUST WATCHING ME AND MORE LIKE I’M AT A SHOW WHERE PEOPLE ACTUALLY WANT TO BE THERE. 

6:20PM: ACOUSTIC SET IS DONE. THAT’S PRETTY NICE. GOING BACK TO MY BUNK TO HIDE AND DIE IN SILENCE AND DARKNESS BC THAT’S WHAT CUTE PEOPLE DO AND I WANT TO BE ONE OF THOSE. TEXAS IS WEIRD THOUGH BECAUSE THAT’S WHEN OUR SPACE IS PACKED WITH FRIENDS AND FAMILY. NOW, I LOVE SEEING ALL THEM BUT I ALSO LIKE GOING SOMEWHERE LIKE CHARLOTTE, NC WHERE I KNOW APPROXIMATELY 0 PEOPLE AND CAN JUST RELAX AND WIND DOWN IN QUIET. I PROMISE I’M SOCIAL. 

7:47PM: I HAVE SHOWERED AND NOW I WANT TO GO FIND ONE OF THOSE WARPED TOUR COMPILATION CDS BECAUSE I’M ON THE CD AND THAT’S PRETTY COOL BECAUSE IT’S THE LAST ONE, SO I NEED IT. I SHOULD PROBABLY GET ONE FOR MY MOM TOO. THERE’S A GOOD CHANCE THEY’VE BEEN PACKED AWAY THOUGH, I THINK THEY PACK UP AT LIKE 8 OR SO. 

8:35PM: WENT BACK IN TO WARPED TOUR AND WOUND UP TAKING PICTURES WITH PEOPLE AND TALKED AND STUFF SO THAT WAS FUN, BUT I DEFINITELY MISSED MY WINDOW TO GET THE CD. IT’S FINE THOUGH. ALSO I DON’T FEEL SHOWER-CLEAN ANY MORE BECAUSE I’M DUMB AND WENT BACK IN THE HUMIDITY INSTEAD OF STAYING IN HERE AND WATCHING THE OFFICE LIKE A SANE PERSON SO I THINK THAT’S WHAT I’M GONNA DO NOW. WE HAVE SEASON ONE SO I’M PROBABLY ABOUT TO FINISH POWERING THROUGH THAT BECAUSE IT’S ONLY LIKE SIX EPISODES. THIS IS REALISTICALLY HOW I’M GONNA FINISH MY NIGHT SO I’M SIGNING OFF. THANKS FOR READING. PLEASE BE NICE TO ME. GOODBYE. OR GOODNIGHT. WHICHEVER COMES FIRST.
