Singing and Dancing in the Rain

#37. Create a summer playlist.

#108. Dance in the rain. image[1]

I love rain. I love those days when the sky is gray and the world is hushed and quiet. I like the way the world seems to fall into a sort of humming silence on rainy days. I’m not saying I would like to live in a world where it only rained, because I wouldn’t, but I do enjoy the rain. And because of that I decided that I would try to dance in the rain while it was pouring – a little ode to those childhood days when I would splash in  puddles and run around until I was soaked to the bone. For the week or so I’ve been out of school I’d say half of those days have been rainy. However I was looking for a downpour and all I was getting was a drizzle. Finally about two days ago the heavy dark clouds of a storm rolled in. I waited patiently and when the sky opened up and released a torrent of rain I dashed out side. Within minutes my clothes were soaked and I was dancing with a fury I didn’t know I possessed. The storm lasted all of ten minutes and then it was back indoors to change out of my wet attire. All I can say is I had a splashin’ good time.

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,
