You Never Waste Money On Concerts

I am a firm believer in supporting artists through concerts and experiencing live music. Anybody who has attended a concert can attest to the fact that it is something you have to experience for yourself.

I have been to a few concerts in my life, and I want to constantly have one to look forward to. Even though I'm not musically gifted, I eagerly wait to see my favorite artists perform live.

Music is so powerful because it plays a role in the lives of those gifted in it, as well as, those who are skilled in something else. That's one of the best things about music; everybody can enjoy and appreciate it. I'm not particularly talented in the music department, but it is a huge part of my life.

Listening to my favorite songs and playlists through my headphones feels incredible and is good for an instant mood boost. Concerts, or live music, takes this feeling to a whole new level. If you've attended a concert, you know all the different feelings that come with it.

It starts with the build-up of excitement after buying tickets and then turns to patiently waiting for the day to arrive. Once the day finally comes and you're exposed to the artist in person, you are overwhelmed. I know for me, seeing my favorite musicians on stage is a surreal moment. With a lot of the concerts I go to, I never knew if I would ever have the opportunity to see them, so I'm always amazed.3zs

Concerts are experiences that are personalized to every individual, which is why it is difficult to attach a specific feeling to them. Some people are emotional and cry out of happiness. A specific song could have a deeper meaning for them or be associated with a sentimental time in their life.

Other people are screaming out of excitement and passion. All this energy and love was bottled up inside of them, and now they can finally release it. There are also people who are calm and just enjoy being in the presence of live music. Maybe you fit into one of these descriptions or are a combination of all of them, but they all evoke different emotions for individuals.

If you have the opportunity to attend a concert or multiple concerts, I highly recommend you do so and don't view them as a waste of money. Throughout my first year of college, planning and going to concerts were two things that consistently kept me motivated.

Music is a powerful outlet in the world and connects people from all backgrounds. Despite the fact that they are typically crowded and full of people, each person goes through something different. Music can have varying meanings, which is why live music evokes many emotions.

Please don't view concerts and live music events as wastes of money because, even though they may be expensive, they act as sources of motivation, have significant meanings to individuals, and bring people closer together.

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

Listen, you can do whatever you want with your free time. It's yours to spend and you have free range. However, I hope you recognize that there are a ton of proactive things you can do right now instead of stalking your man's ex – yes, I know you do it becuase we are all guilty of it.

Take this time to research your privilege. There are always new things to learn and ways to deepen your understanding of yourself, this world, and your surroundings.

Rihanna is known for many things: her music, fashion, makeup, and now skincare. As a makeup artist myself, I can confidently say that she rocked the makeup world when she released her makeup line in 2017 and has been influencing the beauty world ever since.

Trying some of her makeup products myself, I know that she doesn't skimp on quality, and even though some of her products may be a little pricey, trust me, you get what you pay for.

Friends, no one needs to be reminded that the COVID-19 pandemic rages on in the U.S. Frankly, this is because we have all collectively decided not to do the one simple thing that was asked of us and wear a mask.

I could make this a very boring article, and berate you with facts and statistics and the importance of wearing a mask, but I have opted against that for both of our sakes. Instead, I will attempt to reach you in another way. You might not care about a disapproving look from me, but from Nick Miller? Maybe that will be enough to change your mind.

Preview These Top Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 Picks — From Luxury Purses To Skincare

Currently 3 million people viewing the Stella McCartney purse I absolutely must have.

Online shopping has been a guilty pleasure of ours for years, but now more than ever it's been a shopping lover's outlet for all our home redecorating projects and resort wear we're purchasing for that trip we had to cancel.

One of my favorite places to (virtually) window shop has always been Nordstrom. I admittedly can't afford to go on sprees there often, but I still get a high off of adding things to my cart I know I'll never actually end up buying. But sometimes, that's not enough — that's when I, like the masses of luxury-, beauty-, fashion-, and decor-lovers around the world count the days down to the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

5 Things That 'Shameless' Got Wrong About Bipolar Disorder

There is so much more than Ian and Monica lead viewers to believe.

"Shameless" is a hit television series that airs across the world, for my own personal viewing on Netflix. While the show is a major hit, people aren't talking about the issues in the portrayal in the "mental health" category. Ian and Monica are both pretty important characters with bipolar disorder (BD). There are, however, five major flaws with what their bipolar looks like.

I don't want to point fingers or call anyone out, but it seems as though since the school year came to a close and summer officially started, more and more people began to care less and less about coronavirus (COVID-19).

I understand that eventually you have to get on with your life and cannot live in isolation forever, but people are still dying, cases are still increasing, and COVID is clearly not going anywhere for the time being.
