6 Things You Feel After A Concert

We've all been there. That adrenaline rush, feeling on top of the world, the crash...

6 Things You Feel After A Concert
Kathleen Naessens

This one goes out to all my fellow concert addicts. If you have ever gone to a concert before, chances are high that you know the exact feelings that I express in the next six points.

If not, you're lying to yourself.

1. Did that just happen?


Is this real life? It's over already? Did I really just experience that? Why isn't it sinking in? When will it? Can I have a do-over, or, someone please pinch me. That did not happen.

2. Absolute euphoria


You know what I mean. The adrenaline rush that stays with you as you leave the concert. Feeling on top of the world and ready to take it over because of the energy level you're on. Listening to the band's music over and over again because you just saw them! The cloud nine moment of concerts.

3. Reflection


Now that your life is forever changed, or so it feels like, you have a second to register the events that just occurred. This is the time where you might sift through your pictures and videos, deciding what to post along the way. Looking back on all of those perfect concert memories you just made, still not registering what happened.

4. Reality strikes


The realization that you will never experience exactly what you just saw ever again. You are back in the real world and the best you can do is turn Spotify all the way up and replay the show in your mind.

5. Post-Concert Depression


It's a real thing. Staring at your ceiling, feeling a strange sadness pushing on you. An hour earlier you were thriving at the concert of your dreams and now all you have left are the low quality pictures that seemed so much better in the moment. It just ended so soon, how could you not be upset?

6. Acceptance


Okay, okay, of course you were sad that this concert was over, but you will go again next time they come. In the mean time, maybe you can convince your friends to go to another concert with you next month. You purchase the tickets, you are completely broke, but you get to continue the concert-going cycle you love so much. With another concert coming up, you have something to look forward to! Nothing else matters until...

So there you have it, the six stages you go through after a concert! It just hurts in such a good way. See you all at the next concert.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
