Post-Concert Depression? Yeah, it's real.

7 Emotional Phases We All Encounter Before, During, And After Concerts
Amanda Brennan

If you're like me, you love a good concert. Nothing compares to the feeling you get when you hear one of your favorite songs being performed live, right in front of you, sung by the artists you only dream to win meet-and-greets with one day. At the multiple concerts I have been to, here are some emotions I have gone through, and I know everyone around me has too.

Buying the tickets

Happy

Happy, happy, happy—even though the concert is anywhere from three months to even 12 months in advance! You enter the concert date in your favorite "countdown" app on your phone to start counting down the days. You may even post about it on your Snapchat story—besides, maybe a friend who sees the post is planning to go too!

A month or two before

*Listens to singer you're seeing in concert and that singer only* Even though you already know every word to every song, it's better to practice more and get yourself pumped up for one of the best nights ever!!

Two weeks before

Shopping

*Raids closet for a cute outfit that isn't on your Instagram yet* Let's be honest, even if you have an all-time favorite outfit that is perfect for the night, it's worth repeating—we know you have a washing machine! Although, a little shopping never hurt, so go ahead and hit the shops to find a new look for the concert you've been waiting for!

Day of

Wake up and do life as normal until the time comes to get ready for your evening of fun, music, and memories! Get your hair ready, put on a cute shirt and go, go, go! At this point, you are overflowing with excitement and joy as you get in the car and head to the venue.

During the concert

The time has come, the moment you've been waiting for. Peak excitement levels hit when the performer enters the stage. Excitement has taken over and you find yourself thinking, "Wow, I can't believe they are actually real—and we are in the same building, the same ROOM!"

During the encore performance

You're singing every word to the final song and taking in every last moment. When the performer screams "THANK YOU, CHICAGO!!" (or whatever city you are in) you'll start to beg them to come back on stage to sing "just one more."

Hours after the final song has been sung

Post-Concert Depression has hit. When you find yourself sitting in your room going through videos of the night, all you want to do is relive it again and again. Bonus sad points if you had to watch the concert get rained out and end early (hence the photo above).

Truly, concerts allow you to have the time of your life. When an artist or band announces a new tour, I am stoked to get onto TicketMaster to get the best seats, and I know others are too!

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

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.
