Why Concerts Make Some Of The Best Memories

"Music is the strongest form of magic."

347
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.

For a long time, Goya has been a staple in some Latino households. People carry around jars of Adobo when they eat at friend's houses and packets of Sazón Goya can be found in almost everyone's pantry. Many BuzzFeed lists, videos, and memes aimed at Latinos reference Goya somewhere.

But in a year that just keeps hitting us with bad news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue said that Trump was an "incredible builder" and that the US was "blessed" to have him as president at a White House event on Thursday.

Everything You Need To Know About COVID-19 Outcomes, Because It Has To End Eventually

You've heard a lot of possible outcomes thrown around, let's break them down.

If you log into any social media app, you will be overwhelmed with self-appointed experts, preaching the correct way to end this coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic from the comfort of their La-Z-Boy chair. Aside from those dramatic children on TikTok, it's all anyone can talk about. There's an obvious reason for this — the pandemic has taken our world and flopped it on its head, bringing confusion, angst, and an obnoxious amount of sourdough bread into our lives.

All this to say, it's easy to get lost amidst the storm of arguments online. Instead, it's best to break down what's actually going on so we can have an educated perspective as we look to work together to move past our current predicament.

Raven Baxter Was Our Favorite Teen Fashion Icon And We're Still Recreating Her Best Looks, Here

We take a look at Disney's most fashion-forward show to recreate some iconic looks.

Disney Plus

I grew up in the early 2000s. And, like any child at the time, I was hooked on Disney Channel shows. My favorite was and is "That's So Raven."

Raven is a teenage psychic navigating life in hopes of not revealing her powers. Only her family and close friends know she has them. Her powers oftentimes get her in trouble, which is where the comedy comes in. But, they also teach her and her friends sentimental life lessons.

Sobriety is so underrated, even when it comes to healthcare. The instant gratification of a substance or drink isn't exactly as gratifying as some people may think. For those of you who've never been hungover, consider yourself lucky — a hangover is biologically horrifying. A hangover is not instant gratification, so who are we kidding when people say "it just feels good." Being healthy actually feels good and won't hurt you or your bank account in the morning. The best way to be healthy is to choose sobriety.

Ah, yes. The juice cleanse. Yet another popular diet trend that promises to magically solve all of your health, nutrition, and weight issues.

When you take a close look, juice cleanses aren't as magical as they are made out to be, and in fact, they might do more harm than good.

Unauthorized Plastic Surgery Is Totally Unethical, And Happening WAY More Often Than We Know ‬

Plastic surgery for cosmetic enhancements has you looking more botched than beautiful and it’s painful to see.

Coming from someone who could afford numerous cosmetic enhancing procedures I would never in a million years cut up my face or my body. I'm pretty emphatic and when I watch these brainwashed victims with bandages and chronic inflammation (swollen lips) I literally feel their pain.

I've never been big on casual wear or athleisure. Most people who know me have never seen me in sweats. But, I do have those two or three pairs of sweats I can't resist climbing into the second I get home, the newest addition of which is the extra cozy Odyssey crewneck sweatshirt I got in an XL size to feel as close to being wrapped in a blanket at all times as possible.

In the past several months, I've started to expand my horizons, considering the ways in which I can bring my small wardrobe of comfortable bedroom clothing into the public. I've experimented with topping leggings and a sports bra with a denim jacket to the park, and an oversized sweatshirt worn as a dress, cinched at the waist with a belt when I'm out wearing leggings.

How To Dress Like Your Favorite 'Insecure' Characters — Without Spending $2,000

We take a look at the fashion of Insecure season 4, and how you can create these looks yourself.

HBO

Insecure is one of my favorite shows ever. It really encapsulates what it's like being a Black 20-something, trying to navigate the many ups and downs of life. Issa, Molly, Kelli, and Tiffany are living their best lives in California while dealing with the twists and turns that come with that.

From life to relationships to careers, this show truly captures everything that runs through my mind on a daily basis. The show has a sense of realness and a strong frankness that makes you gravitate toward the characters and root for their success.
