The 1975 Concert


Recently, I attended a concert in Philly for the 1975! The tickets were not very expensive (ranging from $35-50) and then venue was very clean and organized. They had food trucks, food stands, drinks, and merch for sale. The band merchandise was a bit on the pricey side- $40 for a tank top. All in all, the band put on an amazing show and the whole atmosphere was relaxing. During the first song, some people started moshing (not sure why ? Lol) but Matt immediately stopped the whole show and asked everyone to stop and to “help everyone up, give them a kiss, and show some compassion.” The music was incredible and I highly suggest everyone to see them live!

Anticipating Summer

With so much going on in my life right now, it has become¬†easy to get swallowed whole by the schoolwork, laundry, errands, work, and all the other junk that is keeping me busy. Even though I like being productive, I have also been keeping my eye on the calendar for that day when school will end and all the pressure of school will be off. I am starting to get “summeritis” (definition here) since my last week of school is in May. Knowing that summer is so soon, I’ve been thinking more and more about what I want to do this summer. I definitely want to take a few trips to the beach, visit New York City, and maybe even buy a milkshake at Wawa at 3 am. I’ve realized that this is my last summer where I’ll still be a kid -I’m seventeen, by the way. Now this does not mean I want to let loose and go crazy but it does mean I want to adventure and have a little bit of fun since next summer I will be busy with college and all. I’m thinking about making a Summer ’16 Bucket List of sorts filled with all the things I want to do. I’m not sure if anyone else makes these but I seem to make one every year haha. I sometimes follow through on the list but not always. I’m super excited for what’s to come and the anticipation is making present day seem boring. Good thing Summer’s coming soon!

Do any of you make Summer Bucket lists or have summeritis? If so let me know down in the comments!
