Yeah, you might be sweaty, but what made you think you wouldn't be sweaty?

General Admission Concerts Are Way Better Than Stadium Concerts

People love concerts. They love the ambiance and the community that surrounds it. Concerts provide fans an opportunity to see the music they love played right in front of their eyes.

Essentially, there are two types of concerts: stadium concerts and general admission concerts.

Stadium concerts are great because they allow for more fans to come and see their favorite artists. My problem with stadium concerts is that you have assigned seats.

Yes, in the name of keeping order, it makes sense, but I don't want to go to a concert if I can't fight my way through the crowd.

That's what I love most about general admission. General admission concerts let you stand off on the outskirts of the crowd and keep your personal space if you choose. But if you really want to fight your way to the barrier, you can.

The best general admission concerts aren't the ones for popular indie singers. Those only have fans pushing towards the barrier relentlessly.

The best ones are the rock concerts, any concert where you find mosh pits, circle pits, or even walls of death. They allow for the crowd to become this fluid motion. You can feel the main pit open and close next to you, but a smaller pit can open up on the opposite side.

That break in the crowd gets sweaty bodies off of you and you can finally feel a breeze. It's like getting a sip of water during a workout.

I don't hate stadium concerts, but I don't understand them. Why spend so much money on an assigned seat? Why not fight your way through a crowd? Why not get a spot close enough that you don't need to zoom in on videos?

I'll never tell someone not to go to a stadium, I just don't understand it.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

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.
