Yes, I Rather Go To A Concert Than A Party
Start writing a post

As a self-proclaimed concert lover, I can say with 100 percent certainty that I would much rather spend my time going to concerts with a handful of good friends than go to a nightclub, party, or anything of that nature. Some of you might think it's a bit odd for me to say that because a concert is like one huge party. However, I think of concerts as something much deeper than that.

To me, a concert has so much meaning. It is one of the only places, in my opinion, where gender, sexual orientation, race, religion, and ethnicity, does not matter. It is a setting where everyone there has something in common. The music speaks to its audience, and everyone present can relate to it in some sort of fashion.

People who wouldn't normally talk to each other, now have an opportunity to do so, because they have the same musical tastes. The feeling of being apart of an audience, and singing your heart out is an indescribable feeling. When the stadium becomes pitch black and isn't lit by anything except cell phone screens, candles, etc., I feel as though I become one with myself, and experience connections with those around me.

Concerts are expensive, and when I have the opportunity to go to one, I feel as though I'm the luckiest person in the world. Saying that I'm excited to go to the "Death Of A Bachelor Tour" in March, and "The Emøtiønal Røadshøw Tøur" in January, is an understatement. Not only do I get to spend more time with my best friend, but I also get to see a few of my favorite artists.

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

In the summer of 2017, 20 type 1 diabetics completed a 10-week 4,000+ mile bike ride from New York to California. They biked against the advice of doctors, family, and friends.

Seasonal Depression Is Real And It Deserves Our Attention

Check in on your friends throughout the winter season, it can be brutal.


As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.

September Is Suicide Awareness Month, But Mental H​ealth Is An Everyday Discussion

Mental illnesses deserve our attention 365 days a year.
