Concerts Are My Favorite Things

Concerts Are My Favorite Things

Who said , "A Concert High" that lasted a week was a bad thing?

Concerts are probably my favorite things in the world to go to. If you've never been to a concert before, picture this: You drive to the venue where the concert is taking place, all excited and giddy because you are finally getting able to see one of your favorite bands in person! It's like a dream come true!

You got your tickets forever ago and now it's finally time to see them. You start heading to the venue and you can see everyone else adorned in their favorite merchandise for the band and they are all talking about how excited they are; the atmosphere is starting to get really hyped. You go into the venue, you hand off your ticket, you get to walk in and see the stage that has the band's name on it and it's starting to become even more real. You get situated where you want to stand or sit and now you wait. You get more and more excited as you hear the bands warm up and the testing of the instruments is like torture as you wait. And then, they come out.

The second they come out, the atmosphere shifts. There are hundreds (and sometimes thousands) of people screaming and you hear one of their more popular songs and the concert just got to that point where everyone was really getting into it.

As the concert progresses, you become one with all of the people around you. Everyone around you likes the band as much as you do and knows all of the songs. Everyone around you is moving to the music and it's becoming the common thing amongst all of you. Here's a fun tip though: Next time you go to a concert, during one of their slower songs, or the song that is the most popular, just get quiet for a moment and just listen to the crowd around you. It's probably the coolest thing. Hearing so many people singing along to a song with such energy is another one of my favorite things about going to concerts.

The best thing about concerts is the feeling. Feeling the bass run through you, hearing a band that you like perform live, having everyone else around you becoming super invested in whats happening, I can't explain the feeling of being there as well as I want to but it's amazing. It's absolutely amazing.

Then as the concert is winding down, you realize you might need to get some water because hot damn it's toasty in there with all of those warm bodies around you and the walk back to the car is one just filled with happiness and a little bit of muffled hearing for a while. There is a very real thing called "A Concert High" and let me tell you, there have been a few concerts that I've been to where the concert high lasts at the very least a few days.

If you've never been to a concert, I urge you to go to one at some point in your life. It will change the way that you appreciate music. Also, they are super addicting. Once you go to your first concert, you will be spending all of your money to keep going to more. But I urge you to spend your money on a concert sometime. It will seriously change you.

To The Boy Who Will Love Me Next

If you can't understand these few things, leave before things get too involved

To the boy that will love me next, I need you to know and understand things about me and my past. The things I have been though not only have shaped the person I’ve become, but also sometimes controls my life. In the past I’ve been used, abused, and taken for granted, and I want something real this time. The guys before you were just boys; they didn’t know how to treat me until it was too late. They didn’t understand how to love me, until I broke my own heart. Before you truly decide to love me I want you to understand these things.

When I tell you something, please listen.

I’m my own person, I want to be loved a certain way. If I ask you to come over and watch movies with me please do it, if I ask for you to leave me alone for a few hours because it’s a girl’s night please do it. I don’t just say things to hear my own voice, I say things to you because it’s important to my life and the way I want to be loved. I’m not a needy person when it comes to being loved and cared for, but I do ask for you to do the small things that I am say.

Forgive my past.

My past is not a pretty brick road, it is a highway that has a bunch of potholes and cracks in it. I have a lot of baggage, and most of it you won’t understand. But don’t let my past decided whether you want to love me or not. My past has helped form who I am today, but it does not define who I am. My past experiences might try and make an appearance every once in a while, but I will not go back to that person I once was, I will not return to all that hurt I once went though. When I say those things, I’m telling the complete and honest truth. I relive my past every day, somethings haunt me and somethings are good reminds. But for you to love me, I need you to accept my past, present and future.

I’m just another bro to the other guys.

I have always hung out with boys, I don’t fit in with the girl groups. I have 10 close girlfriends, but the majority of my friends are guy, but don’t let this scare you. If I wanted to be with one of my guy friends I would already be with him, and if you haven’t noticed I don’t want them because I’m with you. I will not lose my friendships with all my guy friends to be able to stay with you. I will not cut off ties because you don’t like my guy friends. I have lost too many buddies because of my ex-boyfriends and I promised myself I wouldn’t do that again. If you don’t like how many guy friends I have you can leave now. Don’t bother trying to date me if you can accept the fact I’m just another bro.

I might be a badass, but I actually have a big heart.

To a lot of people I come off to be a very crazy and wild girl. I will agree I can be crazy and wild, but I’m more than that. I’m independent, caring, responsible, understanding, forgiving, and so such more type of woman. Many people think that I’m a badass because I don’t take any negatively from anyone. Just like we learned when we were younger, “if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say it at all.” Most people can’t do that in today’s world, so I stick up for myself and my friends. I don’t care what anyone thinks about me, or their option on how I live my life. The only thing I care about is being able to make myself happy. Even though I’m an independent woman, understand that I do have a big heart. Honesty when I truly care for someone I will do just about anything they ask, but don’t take advantage of this. Once you take advantage of this part of me, all respect will be lost for you.

I’m hard to love.

Sometimes I want to be cuddle and get attention, and sometimes I don’t want you to talk to me for a couple hours. Sometimes I want you to take me out for a nice meal, but sometimes I want a home cooked meal. Every day is different for me, sometimes I change my mind every hour. My mood swings are terrible on certain days, and on those days you should probably just ignore me. I’m not easy to love, so you’ll either be willing to find a way to love me, or you’ll walk out like so many others have.

I’m scared.

I’m scared to love someone again. I’ve been hurt, heartbroken, and beat to the ground in my past relationships. I want to believe you are different, I want to hope things will truly work out, but every relationship has always ended up the same way. I’m scared to trust someone, put my whole heart into them, just to be left and heartbroken again. I sick and tired of putting my whole body and soul into someone for them to just leave when it is convenient for them. If you want to love me, understand it won’t be easy for me to love you back.

When “I’m done.”

When I say “I’m done” I honestly don’t mean that I’m done. When I say that it means I need and want you to fight for me, show me why you want to be with me. I need you to prove that I’m worth it and there’s no one else but me. If I was truly done, I would just walk away, and not come back. So if I ever tell you, “I’m done,” tell me all the reasons why I’m truly not done.

For the boy who will love me next, the work is cut out for you, you just have to be willing to do it. I’m not like other girls, I am my own person, and I will need to be treated as such. For the boy that will love me next, don’t bother with me unless you really want to be with me. I don’t have time to waste on you if you aren’t going to try and make something out of us. To the boy who will love me next, the last thing I would like to say is good luck, I have faith in you.
