Losing him was blue like I’d never known
Missing him was dark grey all alone
Forgetting him was like trying to know somebody you never met
But loving him was red
My favorite thing about concerts has to be the sense of unity between everybody. I love the way complete strangers start conversing together and how everyone knows every line to every song. I love the way everyone just lets loose for one night.
Way back in December my sister stayed attached to her computer for two hours in order to secure three tickets to Taylor Swifts’s Red Tour. After five months I had nearly forgotten about the concert until the week of when my mother mentioned our tickets had come in the mail. Anyway if you hadn’t guessed my sister, her friend and I all went to a Taylor Swift concert this past weekend. In order to get to the concert venue we had to take the lightrail. The tram was packed full of people all buzzing about the concert and trying to guess what songs she would sing and what costumes she would wear. After fifteen stops we finally reached our destination and were greeted with an overwhelming amount of people dressed in Taylor Swift memorabilia. After fighting through the crowd we enter the concert venue and immediately I lost my sister in the crowd. Alone and without my phone I nearly started hyperventilating. However my sister managed to find me quickly and for the rest of the concert she forced me to hold her hand. To say the least I was mortified. Here I am, nearly fifteen years old and I still need my sister to hold my hand. Despite the embarrassment and the fact that a bottle of water and some fries cost fifteen dollars the rest of the concert was amazing. Ed Sheeran who was the opening act was absolutely brilliant. And Taylor’s performance was terrific. She performed every song from her latest album as well as some of her older songs. My favorite part was when she got off stage and ran through the crowd to perform on a smaller stage that was literally only three feet away from our seats. Even better Ed Sheeran joined her on the smaller stage and together they sang their song Everything Has Changed. It was one of those perfect nights that I’ll remember for years to come and I think it was a fanatastic way to start the summer.
May the summer be ever in your favor,
(First post for Summer 2013! I’m a little rusty with this whole blogging thing, but I’m sure I’ll get into the swing of things after a few posts. Anyway just wanted to say thanks to everyone who reads my posts and follows my blog. You guys are the best!)
Once again I enlisted the help of my friend Micky to complete this bucket list item. I am also happy to say this list item is one of the few that I thought up completely by myself. It’s completely ingenious. Anyway, since we are both single (a fact that I am actually proud of because, unlike some of my peers, I plan to hold on to my youth) I figured we would have to use this to our advantage and go on a stereotypical “date” together. And by stereotypical I mean dinner and a movie.
We decided to see Pixar’s newest animation masterpiece, Brave. Due to a vicious storm that had hit two days before and left half our city without power or water the mall/movie theater was completely packed. It was utter chaos, with lines to the street and movies being sold out like crazy. Just our luck Brave was one of the sold out movies. However, Micky being the bad influence she is, convinced me to buy tickets to The Avengers and then sneak into Brave. Trust me, it was pretty hardcore. I’m now a juvenile delinquent and have probably ruined my chances of getting into a good college, even though we didn’t get caught. I mean technically we did nothing wrong…we still paid for the movie. And as I was buying my ticket for The Avengers it happened to sell out, leaving Micky with a ticket and me without. When I explained the situation to the teller she gave me a ticket to some Tyler Perry movie and told me to just go to The Avengers anyway. So either way I would have ended up in a different movie then my ticket specified. I was basically given permission to sneak into a movie. Besides you only live once, mind as well break the rules every now and then. Living the YOLO way. 🙂
Regardless of it being the cause of me turning into a delinquent, Brave was actually really precious, as all Pixar movies are. It was captivating despite being a cartoon, the character’s accents were charming, and well it was just cute. Go see it. Seriously. Do it. Do you have tickets yet? 😛
After the movie we forged into the packed mall and ate at Panera. It ended up being a pretty first-rate date. 😉 Sorry about the lack of pictures, but somehow I didn’t think bringing a camera into the movie theater would go over to well.
May the summer be ever in your favor,
