Why Concerts Make Some Of The Best Memories
Daniel Ebersole

Music is one of the most impactful aspects of everyone's lives. Music inspires, empowers, motivates, and understands. It's no wonder why concerts and the experiences that accompany them can be so memorable. You never forget your first concert, whether it was seeing your favorite band or artist only a year ago or seeing Hannah Montana live when you were 8 years old. What is it about concerts that are so compelling?

Concerts are compiled of some of the ineffable experiences. The energy in and of itself is almost indescribable; anticipation for your favorite artist to take the stage, falling in love with new music by an opening act, hundreds of people cheering nonstop, feeling each kick of the bass drum as if it's in your bones. Once the artist takes the stage, you forget anything and everything that's been bothering you, and all that matters is the fun you're having, and hearing the music you love being played live. It's even incredible to hear every person in the venue singing along to your favorite song, every voice reverberating throughout the vicinity, every lyric meaning something different to each person.

Along with the exhilaration from the atmosphere of concerts, the experience as a whole is made even better by the person standing by your side. My best concert experiences were with my best friend, my cousins, or my brother. Whether you're with a friend, family member, sibling, or significant other, the memories made at your favorite concert are even more special when shared with someone you love. Music brings you closer together, and is undeniably a great thing to have in common. The experience is even better when you make a night out of it; getting dinner before the show, figuring out the train route into the city, exploring the city itself, and talking about how great the show was afterwards because you're way too energized to even think about falling asleep.

Whether you've been to several concerts, or only one, it's undoubtedly a moment you are never going to forget. If you're front row, or in the nose-bleed seats, with a friend by your side and your favorite artist on the stage, you're bound to make endless memories and take a considerable amount of pictures and videos (just don't take too many - make sure you enjoy the concert and live in the moment!). Hopefully, we'll all be fortunate enough to be able to see our favorite artists live eventually. Until then, reflect on past concerts, keep an eye out for tour dates, and jam out to your favorite artist.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?

13924

If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
