Yes, You Should Go To An EDM Show

Yes, You Should Go To An EDM Show

A lot of people give concert-goers flack for a “lack in musical taste,” but what they don’t understand is that they are completely missing their chance for the experience of a lifetime.

We can talk about how DJs “just press buttons and act like they are doing something,” but I don’t want to get into that incessant argument. You don’t have to like electronic music to have a great time at a concert. I wasn’t a big fan when I went and saw Zedd in Chicago, but I had the time of my life. 

Everyone who attends EDM concerts goes for the same reasons: music and the experience. This creates an amazing atmosphere where everyone simply gets along. The crowd wants to have a good time, and they aren’t afraid to meet new people and ensure they have a great experience too. Tai Wu explains EDC Vegas as “an all day party with thousands of the closest friends I never met.”

To add to that, Giuseppe Maranto describes Spring Awakening as, “A once-in-a-lifetime experience. You feel the music moving through your body. The energy and vibes you get from the people around you is indescribable. You feel like you are part of a family. Everyone is one. Nobody judges you no matter what happens. All different walks of life come together to become one big family.” 

Our culture is ever evolving. As the EDM scene continues to grow, so do these weekend concert series. They have become bigger, louder and more elaborate. New concerts are being created and the ones already established are becoming legendary. I have seen many close friends, who used to bash electronic music, be converted to that guy that attends every concert. People I would never think to see at these shows have been sending me snaps and pictures rubbing it in my face how they were having an amazing time. 

So if you haven’t been to one of these insane concerts because you don’t like the music, or whatever your excuse may be, I suggest you just do it. It is an amazing experience where you will meet some characters, for lack of a better word. Grab some experienced friends and take a trip out to the next concert near you, you won’t be disappointed.

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.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
