Random thoughts

DavidFBI just read David’s FB post. Is it just me or does he sound about 45 years old here? World-weary and reflecting on quality time missed and time passing much too quickly. Makes me a little sad for him, tbh. And the teary emoji?? *sobs*

I can totally relate because at his age I’d also played a parental role in helping to raise my younger siblings.

“Kind of had to be the dad in a lot of ways in recent years” … not gonna lie, my jaw dropped at this part.

Oh the weight that’s been on David’s young shoulders.

I don’t know what he has planned for the future, he’s certainly keeping us in the dark for the most part… either because he’s conflicted about having fans at all, he isn’t sure what path he’s taking right now or he just doesn’t feel like sharing. Fair enough.

His FB account recently posted a message asking us to “track” him, which I find confusing … track what? The height of his socks? *ducks flying projectiles*

It feels very strange being a fan of his right now… I feel as though I’m a fan not of a pop performer in the public eye but just a guy who just wants to live his life. Which of course I’m happy he’s doing … ecstatic actually… but it makes me feel like some kind of weird stalker so I think it’s time for me to back off blogging about him.

I love you guys though, especially the smart, funny, kind peeps who take the time to comment here, I always look forward to hearing your take on things.

To quote Arnold Schwarzenegger… I’ll be back… whenever a hint of a David Archuleta music release whispers on the wind. (Leaked songs count too. *hint hint* )

And if you’re totally bored and feel like surfing through the “Utter Nonsense” posts, just click the category below. (And I’ll still be on Twitter, of course. 🙂 )

Peace be with you all. ♥

    Deb
    I can understand why you have made this decision. Patience is a string that is getting stretched very thin at this point. We fans will be there for him when he does get some music out. In the mean time everyone has their own choices to make.
    I look forward to the time when you return. 🙂

    Deb,
    Funny thing (not haha funny), I was thinking just the same thing this morning. I don’t begrudge David doing what he’s doing in order to bring about what he wants to bring about, but I’m not sure that I should be ‘fangirling’ what is going on right now. I’ll always be a fan of David Archuleta, whether it is only what he has given to us pre-mission and mid-mission, or whether it’s that plus some new post-mission music and events.

    I too, was sad when I read his words this morning. He’s shouldered a lot of ‘stuff’ in his young years. He’s a strong person, and a great example, because of it.

    I can understand what you’re saying about not blogging, but let it be known that I will miss EVERYTHING that you come up with!! I would love to be able to keep reading, even occasionally, some humorous and profound thoughts from you. Love you!

  4. Angelica says:

    Deb,

    You will be so missed but I will see you on twitter and I totally understand. Going through some of the same feelings myself. As I said in the last post, love ya! Thanks for the memories and the kabillion laughs. Hope to see you and Ref again one day for David’s return concert tour.

  5. peppertara says:

    Aw TOfan…well, if you stop blogging (which I guess you will for now) I will definitely miss these posts! I do understand your reasons however and have appreciated bigtime what you have shared with us all.
    Think we all understand that David will be ready when he is ready. I’m sure we will be hearing some “music release whispers on the wind” eventually and we’ll be tracking more than the “height of his socks”, haha.
    Yes, David has carried a lot of responsibility it seems and he is such a good big brother to his younger sisters. Will wait and see what transpires in the future and will always be a fan.
    Will be strange not having your blogs to read, gosh…will miss you and them but look forward to more from you when you feel the time is right. ❤
    Once a SnowAngelz always a SnowAngelz. 🙂

      Thank you so much for all the times you’ve made me laugh (and think). It’s been a journey and you’ve done an amazing job!

      I’ll be here to read if/or when you decide to post anything. I love you guys!

    Oh gosh!! I get it but nooooooooooooo. You are the only light left on these days.

    I can’t thank you enough for all the years of positivity and joy. I hope he’s back soon so that you will be back soon, too.

    Deb, you’re blog will be missed, but I totally understand where you’re coming from. Thanks you so much for all your uplifting and funny posts. You have made many of my days filled with laughter. See you on twitter for now!

    TOfan

    I, too, will miss you, but I understand why you’re taking a break. I feel that way sometimes. I think, when I see all these people with selfies with him, why don’t they just leave him alone and let him eat or whatever it is he’s doing. He has no privacy. But, here I am, looking at those selfies, and I would probably be the other person in one with him if I had the chance. Hope he releases something soon, so you aren’t gone too long. I always look forward to your blogs. They’re often the bright spot in my day. I laugh out loud, literally.

    TOFan,
    With sadness, I understand how you’re feeling. The last few months have been a struggle for all of us. Just want you to know that I have always enjoyed your spot-on writing and whacky sense of humor. You are one funny lady! I hope our paths cross again. With much love.

    But wait…I feel exactly the same way. You put it so well. Dang dang dang dang dang I will miss coming to this site daily. But I understand–you’ve gone above and beyond what might have been expected. Blogging is hard, creative blogging is harder, and humerous creative blogging is hardest.

    You are a gem, Deb, a gem. May we meet again one day.

    TOfan
    I haven’t comment much but I’m pretty sure I’ve read every one of your posts. Thanks for always finding the humor and making us literally laugh out loud. 😀 You’ve been a delightful gift to this fanbase.

    You will be missed.

    • TOfan says:

      Truly epic moment… and I’m talking about the sandals without the socks! 🙂 🙂 🙂

      That was pretty funny! 🙂 I knew he’d do it! And one of the few peeps to include ALSA.org in his posts!

  13. refnaf says:

    This so resonates with me… “It feels very strange being a fan of his right now… I feel as though I’m a fan not of a pop performer in the public eye but just a guy who just wants to live his life. Which of course I’m happy he’s doing … ecstatic actually… but it makes me feel like some kind of weird stalker” I really feel the same way. It just doesn’t work for me to be spazzing about what restaraunt he ate at, or his socks, or his hair, lol. It is the music … the voice, that I will wait for and spazz about… and go to see in concert when that time comes. When there is “a hint of a David Archuleta music release whispers on the wind” I will be here right with you. It does feel right to take a break right now.

    You have brought so much fun to the fanbase…. we can never thank you enough!!! You, my dear are a HILARIOUS writer and I look forward to THE RETURN!!

    I too want to thank-you for running this blog and making me laugh. We were so lucky to have you creating these funny creative blogs about our favorite singer. I will miss them so much. I too understand why you feel that you need to step away. It’s amazing to me that David has had some very active fansites even though he hasn’t really had a public music career for over two years. I hope he gets back to his public music career soon, but who knows? He may be going to BYU this fall if the rumors prove true. Of course, he could still release music and have concerts even while he goes to school, but will he? Hope to hear new music from David soon along with funny posts from you.

    Deb, I am sitting here watching Project Runway and decided to check SA.
    Wow.
    I gotta tell you, I completely understand. I feel bad that I haven’t been commenting. I feel bad that when I do comment, it’s all the same comment. I don’t know how you stayed creative for so long.
    I’ll see you in the other places. Thanks for all of this. 😊

    Here’s to you TOfan, *raising my glass* for keeping all us all in
    stitches!
    I have such respect for what you have written here today.♥spot on.
    ” whenever a hint of a David Archuleta music release whispers on the wind.”
    much love to you..

  18. Bychance says:

    Oh, so sad to see you go, TOfan. 😦 I realize I have taken for granted your wonderful, witty, lighthearted posts, and wish I had said thank you more often. You are a gem! I wish you well, and hope to see you when there is music to celebrate, and in the way that only YOU can! Thank you, and take care!

    My very sentiments, TOfan. I already have a similar post at AAM ready to be clicked on at any time, but so far, I am still reluctant to do so for the simple reason that I happen to have an extremely high threshold of patience. But it’s not easy, in fact it’s often exasperating.
    We orientals like to think that many things are fated, and following him and posting things about him, how ever unrelated to music as should be the main purpose of this activity, and how ever they seem to make me look inward and think of myself as a “thick-skinned stalker”, I have a sneaky suspicion that I am fated to carry on till my last breath. Hmph .. sounds terribly drama-queen-like – a gross exaggeration of course – but that is very close to what he has done to my sanity. lol. I am not on twitter but would love to see you come back very soon. Peace and take care.
    PS – No, I just realised I lied. I AM going on vacay to Italy yet once again soon – letting the others carry on the little bits they are willing to post. So AAM will still be there, just a little slower for awhile.

  20. CADTHU says:

    Aww Deb. I totally understand this but will SO miss your blogs. You have truly enhanced the “Archuleta experience” with your hilarious posts. I’m terrible at commenting but trust me I’ve read every one of your posts and LOL’d on a frequent basis. I too reacted at David’s comment at being a father figure. He’s been through a lot yet always smiles. I’ll be on twitter everyday and will be a fan for life. Like the rest of the fanbase I just wish we knew what he is up to! (And for the record, just one word on music from him and I am FANGIRLING to the max!). Thanks for always making me smile Deb!

    Ps. Feel free to post one last time on D’s IB vid and step dancing. I would be ok with that 😛

  21. Nan says:

    Deb, I understand perfectly. I don’t know how you come up with your unique, humorous posts, but I always enjoy them. I’ll keep in touch through twitter and watch for any future posts from you – David-related or anything else. I love your style of humor and writing. You have a gift.

  22. newangel2 says:

    I get what you’re saying, Deb, and like everyone else, I’ll miss your posts. You are so creative and funny. But yeah, there’s just not a lot to talk about lately. I was thinking about that the last few days as well. I’m glad he’s been able to put his time in with his family where it will pay off forever. And the fact that he’s been recording “things” makes me think music is still somewhere around the corner. That said, I miss my Davidy friends. It’s like the end of high school where everyone scatters to the four winds. Here’s hoping for a class reunion someday soon.

  23. newangel2 says:

    I should’ve added his example means more to me than his music so I can hang in there, but the music (and performing live) is what brings us all physically together, so that’s what I love about that!

  24. abanana77 says:

    (((((TOfan)))))

    Love you! (You know that!) Even though I’ve been fairly absent in recent times (for similar reasons you are giving for pausing the blog), I wanted to say once again for the millionth time how utterly genius and hilarious you are! And how much I’ve enjoyed reading your blogs over the years. <33333 seriously they've made me smile when I really needed a smile many times 🙂

    I'll "see you" around – maybe I should actually take a trip to TO and actually SEE you again at some point! ❤

    (((((Hugs))))))

  25. Spirit says:

    TOfan……I, too, am saddened to see you (temporarily ..hopefully) discontinuing this site. I will miss the joy and humor you bring to the fan base. I do understand your reasoning and feel the same way. I have become more uncomfortable with the many pictures posted of David by those who seem to be invading his privacy as he tries to sort out a balance between his private life and his career. I’ll be looking forward to your return when David has career related news for us again!

  26. Kizzi says:

    First, I love you. Second, I love you. Third…well, you know, I love you.

    I’ll find you on Twitter and stay connected that way as you are part of the wind beneath my wings, David world, and more.

    I do feel your joy and your pain and all things in between. Kudos to you for keeping it real and being true.

    I absolutely 100% know we will see each other at a David concert in the future. He is so young in years and an ancient soul. That old soul will express itself in music, I’ve solid faith in that. So when that very, very young man syncs with his ancient soul, his music, the beauty of his artistry within will blast onto the world as assuredly as the sun rises. See you then, my friend!

    P.S. Trust you to put up a “farewell for now” blog with the title “Random thoughts.” Brilliantly understated humor to the end. LOL. 😀

    Love everyone at SAz. See you at a future David concert! XXOOXX

    You are an amazing lady!. Funny, Real, a True Gem.
    Hugs Tofan and we will see each other again – I have NO doubt.

  29. TOfan…

    What can one say?…

    I have met so many of you and for the first time in my life I have had a huge circle of friends from everywhere in North America who have had one very special thing in common, our love and passion for a great musician. It has been as rare as it ever gets!!!!

    Our MOTAB days and nights will be close in my memories for a very long time, as well as his last Christmas tour when snow fell upon us on a very rare night.

    I feel that he will return and it won’t be that long. We are just feeling time flying by us. So David hear us.

    To everyone, we will be seeing you ever so soon….

    SB

  30. I can’t wait to see those little Canadian flags waving again at a concert ! Luv u!

  31. Deb, just had a chance to read your thoughts and I completely understand where you’re coming from. So many of us do., I’m sure. Will miss your smile inducing blogs for a while but I know you’ll have reason to return shortly *hopes* … in the meantime, see ya’ at Twitter. 😊

  32. emmegirl14 says:

    Relax a bit and enjoy your hiatus (although selfishly hoping it will be brief because that would mean music from D and more wacky weirdness from you.)

    As has been said, you are a gem – this ride wouldn’t be the same without you.

    We love you too Deb *group glompy hugs* Just promise when things get movin-n-groovin again with Mr.-Fancy-Foot-Work…. you’ll be baaaack!! I’ve tried to not take my fandomness too seriously, which is why I (and the Mr.) LUV your humor!

    It tugged at my heart too with his sister post..he talks like a parent. His family has gone through so much change recently. I can imagine he’s such an anchor for them and glad he is able to take time to reconnect with those that matter most. Said before: his music continues to inspire me, but more so his example. The strength of youth these days is remarkable.. I am continually taught by them. Music and performances are coming, but he owes us nothing. Tbh, drives me nuts when peeps feel they need to be notified beforehand on what he does with his life (ie. Education Week & the panic he might be a college co-ed without our knowledge :O *venting*) I just continue to hope he finds ‘success’ by his definition.

    Grateful for the true and fun friendships gained in this following. Yes, here’s to future rendezvous! In the meantime, see you in Twittersville ❤

  37. I should have mentioned…

    Always the story about ‘spending time under the bridge’ may forever be the most humorous writing ever. We were feeling perhaps scolded in a way and you came back with a story that brought me back to laughing! That was a remarkable feat!! We will always be grateful for your writings throughout our down days as well as our days of pure joy! There were many times people from the different sites made the suggestion that fans should drop on over to SA and read your writing.

    It has been an unusual but rewarding journey not only for David but for every fan. We often talked about the missing piece to the puzzle but it hasn’t been found yet so the journey continues!

  39. Utahmom says:

    So sad to hear this, I have enjoyed your blog so much! Totally understand though, and I hope it will just be temporary. I have to admit however, that I’m not feeling optimistic about a career resurgence happening soon–hope I’m wrong. David’s statement about having to be a father figure resonated with me, though was not surprising. I think he’s felt a lot of responsibility on his young shoulders for quite awhile. #noregrets makes me think he made a conscious decision to forgo his career for now in order to spend most of the summer with his family. I have so much respect for his strength of character.

    Hopefully, with his sisters in school, he’ll feel more comfortable pursuing his career. He’s been out of commission for such a long time though, it’s gotta be tough to break back in. And the wait has been tough on us, that’s why this blog has been such a breath of fresh air–I’m amazed you’ve been able to create such brilliant posts out of thin air for so long. I will miss this place!

    • TOfan says:

      “the wait has been tough on us”… so true, Utahmom, and that’s just what I don’t want to do right now “wait”(in blog form, anyway) … for David’s sake, believe it or not. After his feisty blog to us, it really struck me how he could view our “go-getter” support for him as pressure… pressure to be there for us (in vlogs, music, whatever) after we’ve waited for 2 long years. Do not want to add to the pressure he must already be feeling.

      I want to say a big thank you to all of you for “getting” why I’m taking a blogging break (not a fan break, that will NEVER happen!) … not because it’s slow right now, it was certainly never slower than 2012-2014, lol, and I had a blast actually coming up with stuff & nonsense all that time. But for those 2 looooong years I felt we had permission to keep fan-girling (-boying 🙂 ) because Kari clearly had David’s go-ahead to keep tweeting pics & stuff to keep the fandom fires burning.

      It just feels different to me now… that maybe he needs some space, you know? So when I say I’ll be back when music news comes along, it’s not only because of the music but because that will be a big green light to me that he needs all hands on deck to get his music out there to a world that sorely needs it.

      And yes, he’s a wonderful example, but I feel that maybe that too is adding pressure to an already full plate of expectations…

      Okay, I’ll stop spamming my own thread now, hahahaha… (but I was entirely sincere about that group-glomp, I love you guys, you are all such bright lights to me. ♥ ♥ ♥ )

    So sorry to see you go for now. I’m one who shamelessly quotes you all over the place, and will miss your good-humored good sense.

  42. archugeezer says:

    I hope I am not too late to add a comment.

    I am just back from my sojourn to Sin City, not the best place for a puritanical—and somewhat judgmental–old lady. After five long but necessary work days downtown, I needed a brain bleach antidote. My blessed alternative was a couple of additional days with two daughters and their families who live in Real Las Vegas.

    David-blog surfing was severely limited last week, but I did see David’s IG post about his sisters. My heart cracked open a little. And then I came home to your announcement.

    I understand. I really do. I get it because I felt it; but like so many others who have commented, I will miss your wonderful wackiness like crazy. I love and admire you for a hundred reasons and hope you know it. I even forgive you for making me teary-eyed with that Boise glomping gif. 🙂 

    When it comes to David resuming his singing career, I am a total optimist, even if it means keeping a sharp lookout from the back burner. I am patient, but I owe him that.

    I will look for you on Twitter, TOfan, but I won’t feel one bit upset if SnowAngelz gets a very short sabbatical. ❤

  43. oliveoil says:

    TOfan, thank you for all the laughs and giggles.Your posts always managed to keep up my spirit during this somewhat strange period of inertia.Not for David, but for us. I’m sure he is being very busy and productive, but it’s not quite what I envisioned what would happen after his mission. I hope that you will resume the insanity once he returns to performing for his fans. Meanwhile I’m really going to miss you. God bless.

    • TOfan says:

      thanks, olive oil… I sure hope he reads this comment I saw on his FB post about writing in Nashville 🙂 :

      “Dude, I just want to hear you sing again. I know you’ve been on a ‘mission’…but maybe your ‘mission’ was to bring people into your faith via your music. Might work. Might not. But your voice when you sing is magical and cosmic. You should share that beauty regardless of everything else.”

  44. amb4da says:

    TOfan ❤
    I'm so glad it's not too late to post a HUGE THANK YOU to you…as you take this, hopefully, temporary break. Saw this last week while away a few days and I'm just getting back to comment tonight. You've always, so adeptly made me LOL, but your last ("spamming") comment above, explaining why you're stepping back to give David appropriate space now, really touched me.
    I totally relate and agree. The few times I comment lately anywhere, or maybe Tweet something, I sometimes agonize if it feels like "more pressure" to David, as you say, rather than my love and support for him and his music. Haven't had the chance to read all the responses yet, though I'm not surprised to see so much well-deserved gratitude and love for this wonderfully wise-whacky blog! 🙂 I love all the prominent David blogs out there, each for their own style. This was an easy, fun place to come, have a quick laugh and comment… always light-hearted, always spot-on wise and witty about the whole dang, wonderful, David-love experience.
    I will miss, (for now) the late Sunday night email that would show up in my inbox with a new post, and inevitably make me laugh out loud…sending me to bed with a smile.
    But all that said..Yep..I get it, and good move.
    Ya know…I have no dang idea what's in Mr. A's heart and mind right now, or his plans for music. Like others…I wonder, I'm curious, I'm anticipating yet wanting to always respect his space and real-life too. I'm just a fan. I just love his music. It's amazingly like nothing I've ever heard or experienced before. I wish for him the freedom to live his life his way, happily and successfully. I'm hoping we're all "invited to the party" down the road….when and if David wants to share more music with us again, I will be there to listen…grateful again for his sharing his gift.
    No matter what, it's all good and his life. Like you say above…"not a fan break, NEVER!!"
    Hope we all get to laugh together real soon…I'm very optimistic. It just seems as natural as the sun coming up, David & music. (and by that, David, REALLY…NO PRESSURE!!")
    Til later~ see y'all out there somewhere, and to TOfan, see you on Twitter & IG~~ 🙂

    • amb4da says:

      ps. forgot to say…like others noticed too…that #noregrets was, to me, the most telling. From age 16-23, he sure had to miss a lot of “normal” life and family. According to him, AI turned into a whirlwind, way bigger than what he was thinking it would, when he tried out…and then OFF! went his career & life after that. Then the mission. Much as he always seemed grateful and happy about all the opportunities his music career gave him, much as he accepted the sacrifices he made to go on his mission…it was a lot of time away from other things and people that matter to him.
      So..yes…”no regrets”…I hope so. Good for him.

      • TOfan says:

        Thanks for your kind comments, abm4da! And I wasn’t sure what to make of his #noregrets hashtag… I thought maybe no regrets at “kind of having to be the dad” for his two sisters but you’re right, he’s had to sacrifice being away from them a lot ever since A.I., really.

        Was happy to see his tweet about his songwriting… although I can’t believe songs like Broken, Good Place, TAGGB, SOT… I could go on… weren’t written from his heart. He’s such a puzzle, isn’t he? 🙂

        To be clear on the “no regrets” (after reading TOfan’s response below)…I meant, since he had to sacrifice so much in time away since AI & mission, seems he didn’t regret how he spent this summer living life, with friends and family, especially with his 2 sisters.
        (not meaning he didn’t regret all the sacrifices made…as I think that’s what you thought I meant?) LOL…confusing?? Anyway…glad he’s taking time with people now, and doing that for himself…he’s earned it.

        songleaksongleaksongleakkkkk!!! eeep! 🙂 …sounds like background vocals in the making.. tks for sharing TOfan!!
        ps. not to worry re: shirt, Deb…when Mr. A. starts really singing (and performing)…those buttons don’t stand a chance. 😉 (slaps self for clothes commentary, (really, I don’t care!) and resumes being “good fan.”) #happydance! #music!!

    Song snippet, whoa, love that little bit and love that leaked “2nd verse”, haha. Must open that top button…. need to allow that throat and vocal chord (s) to maximize their full potential. 🙂
    All sounds wonderful to me. Always thought he wrote from his heart too, guess we are in for some nice surprises!

    That tweet made me wonder too…. all the stuff he has written so far was not “it” for him???
    hmmmmm
    Love the snippet and the knowledge that he is writing and laying down tracks!!!

    All kinds of awesome (thx. 4 tweeting @betsyjane25!):

    Late to the party but so glad I still have a chance to post!
    Thanks for all the happiness you have given me Tofan. Your humor leaves me “dying” it is so spot on. It so kindly laughs at us crazy fans and points out all the unique wonderful qualities of dear David. You are one unique wonderful writer. So hoping it won’t be long before you are again sharing all you imagine.

    tbh, wasn’t sure why you were stopping blogging when David says he’s writing new music but then I saw his last tweet and the BYU school tweets from others and I totally get where you’re coming from.

    “I feel as though I’m a fan not of a pop performer in the public eye but a guy who just wants to live his life.”

    You’re absolutely right, he does deserve some privacy and maybe the spotlight off of him while he’s figuring things out, studying, “living his life” — but will miss this blog. 😦

    I get the feeling from David’s recent tweets that this is where he is right now:

    “I’m done with having fans, too intrusive, but on the other hand I’m hoping to release my new music, so someone’s gotta buy it. Hmm, dilemma, guess I need to tweet something vague.” 😬 🙂
