I’m Back!!!!!

Whoops as you can see I didn’t follow thru with my whole “I’m going to write a ton of posts now” promise. But today I’m pumped up and ready to write! Let’s do this thing!

#58. Pierce my bellybutton.

If you followed my bucket listing adventures last year you’ll probably remember my fear of needles. Actually forget fear- it’s a full on phobia. I despise needles and blood and things that poke you. I run away at the mention of shots and hide in the parking lot of the doctor’s office until we leave (true story). If they happen to catch me I scream, bite, kick, wiggle, squirm and just make a total fool of myself. But not anymore. After my diagnoses of Crohn’s last year I needed to be put on a medicine that required weekly blood tests. My doctors gave me two options: A) continue to have symptoms and feel miserable for the rest of my life or B) get over my feel of needles so I could take the medicine and get better. Obviously I chose the better of the two options and I’m now in medicated remission (which basically means I no longer feel bad with the help of medicine. The downside is without the medicine I flare and the symptoms come back, but we’re working on it so all is well). Ok that’s enough back story; the fact of the matter is that I no longer have a phobia of needles. So when my sister went to get her first tattoo (ouch! now that’s something I’d never do) I decided I wanted to be “cool” and get a belly button ring. I was hesitant at first and I wasn’t positive I would even go through with it but then I had a surge of confidence and plopped myself in the chair; ready to get pierced. Of course my belly button had to be disinfected first and while I’m glad she cleaned it thoroughly, by the time she was finished my bout of confidence was lost and I was close to backing out. But then with a quick one, two, three…the ring was in and I was finished! So I’m not going to lie and say it didn’t hurt; because it did, but I’m glad I did it and if you want one I would definitely recommend it.

Anyway I’m off to write some more posts!

May the summer be ever in your favor,

#2. Go to a concert.

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.  

ggWay 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 image[2]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 FotoFlexer_Photodsbrilliant. 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,
