Why I Love Drake Concerts

I've been to 3 Drake concerts and I always leave wanting more.

Why I Love Drake Concerts

Over the past three or four years, my older sister Tiffany and I have regularly attended concerts throughout Northern Washington. Our concert of choice, however, is undoubtedly Drake. We first saw Drake live for his Nothing Was The Same Tour, then again shortly as he toured with Lil Wayne in Drave VS. Lil Wayne. And then again, last night, Tiffany and I saw Drake on his Revenge tour with Future; the Summer Sixteen tour. If words could accurately sum up how much us Bibeau girls love Drake, I would be writing a lot more than a mere 500 word article. So instead I'll just write about a few highlights that come with attending a Drake concert.

1. Drake interacts with the crowd so well.

Calling out individuals, giving love to fans, and surfing the crowds via flying machinery is only a small aspect of a classic Drake concert. Drake has notoriously given shout-outs to fans in all three of the concerts that I've attended- a sweet touch to an otherwise hype concert.

2. The lights and special effects are LIT.

Drake concerts always come with fireworks, sparkling effects, and as of last night-multi-colored lights that would drop and fall in unique shapes and patterns. I'm always stuck between staring at the man-of-the-hour, or the amazing special effects.

3. The opening-acts/ guest performers Drake brings with him are amazing.

Last night Roy Woods and DVSN opened the concert. Both amazing up and coming musicians that are bound to get some attention from loyal Drake fans. Also, Drake has brought out celebrities such as Rihanna, Eminem, and Lebron James. An extra perk to purchasing Drake tickets is definitely seeing other celebrity favorites.

4. Drake is a humble artist- this shows through his performance.

Unlike some more overly-cocky musicians, Drake is a humble being. Especially last night, Drake and Future were late to perform due to an accident on the freeway, and although unnecessary, it was sweet and kind of Drake to apologize numerous times for the delay.

5. His performances always leave you wanting more.

I still cannot believe how blessed I am to be able to experience a live Drake concert on three separate occasions. But Drake concerts are addicting- the music, the people, the experience as a whole is simply unbeatable.

As a loyal Drake fan, my perceptions of his concerts are clearly biased. But I will say that I often attend concerts put on by other hip-hop/rap artists and Drake's are always the best. So, it's a guarantee that next time Drake is in town, I'll be there. Always.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.

Open-mindedness. It is something we all need a reminder of some days. Whether it's in regards to politics, religion, everyday life, or rarities in life, it is crucial to be open-minded.
