Hello! I am finally taking a breather. I have been extremely busy this week with school and other fun events.

So to start off, I am home early today because I got food poisoned. I think it was from my breakfast I had earlier today after my aerobics class. My parents dropped by school to pick me up since I didn’t have my car with me today. It was very nice of them giving up their lunch break for me.

Also, I think this has been the longest I have gone without updating my Tumblr. I used to go on it every single day, especially during summer, but I honestly haven’t had the time. I am rarely ever home and I generally sleep when I get home because sleep is important!

I know I must have mentioned somewhere on this blog that I had 2 concerts to go to this week. They both fell on weekdays, so I basically studied most of the weekend, and finished up my assignments early just so I could make time for these concerts.

Tuesday: Andrew Belle concert with Jackson. Jackson and I fell in love with his performance last year when we saw him at Bootleg Bar. We went to see him again on Tuesday and was astounded by his talent. This time around, he basically did a one-man-band act. His voice resonated through the entire stage, and we were able to enjoy his performance without hearing too many instrumentals in the background. I think we’ve developed a deeper appreciation for Andrew Belle. He is an amazing artist, and if you have never heard of him, I suggest you to look him up. I recommend Static Waves and In My Veins.

The Troubadour is a cute venue, but it’s not a good place for short people like me. My viewing of Andrew Belle was slightly obscured by tall people. However, I was able to get a glimpse Andrew between the heads of the tall people, especially when they would stand apart from one another. Most of the time, I asked Jackson to record our favorite songs for me through my phone and I would send the videos to him afterwards. We didn’t get home until 1 am that night, but it was worth it.

Wednesday: Katy Perry concert with Vicky. I don’t even know where to begin other than the fact that it was nothing short of amazing. Vicky and I bought our tickets last week on a whim. We never expected Katy to be so amazing live. She is  full of humor, beauty, and talent (okay, I might have a little girl-crush on her, but who wouldn’t!?). It was definitely one of the most expensive concerts I’ve been to, but all of the work and energy she’s put out for the concert was worth more than what I had paid for! Her costume changes, the special light effects, balloons falling from the ceiling, fireworks on the stage, and her beautiful acoustic version of ‘The One That Got Away’! It was mindblowing!!!!

I was close to losing my voice at the end of the night. Singing and screaming the lyrics to all of my favorite Katy songs (there were plenty), and just having a good time. I think after seeing Katy Perry’s concert last night, it just kind of made me realize that I truly do love concerts and it’s something I’m going to keep going to because I just love being able to hear my favorite songs being performed live right in front of me.

Anyway, I’m done talking about my awesome week. Yes, I’m pretty exhausted, I’m about to go get a good 3 hour nap after I post this. I hope I didn’t bore you to death with this post. I wish I could show you how fun these concerts were, but that was the best way I could have described it. I hope we can go to one together in the future, and maybe I’m being a little forward, but I think I’m a fun person to go to concerts with!

She was bored. She loved, had capacity to love, for love, to give and accept love. Only she tried twice and failed twice to find somebody not just strong enough to deserve it, earn it, match it, but even brave enough to accept it.

We only write about two feelings: one is the first day of summer when you and all of your friends are standing on the edge of a cliff watching the sun set and being overcome with all of your hopes and dreams at once. The other is when you’re walking alone in the rain and realize you will be alone forever.
