concerts i’ve been to + concerts i want to go to

Concerts are a pivotal moment of happiness.

They are moments where you can feel your stomach churn as you show your tickets to the guards at the door. Moments where you can hear your heart in your ears and feel it pounding in your throat as you find your seat or standing location, and the lights begin to dim. Moments where your whole body shakes with excitement as the stage lights flicker on and the opening chords scream to the audience.

Growing up, I was never lucky enough to go to concerts for my childhood idols. Bands like Busted, who were, growing up, my all time favourites, remained Live CD’s on my shelf rather than a performance on stage. I went to my first concert aged 12 or 13, one of the two, and to be honest, I don’t think my first concert experience was anything magical. However, I did enjoy myself, and so it was worth the money and the discomfort of being crowded by people around me, angled so we could see the stage from Block 5.

I didn’t want my concert experiences to end there, and so, since then, I’ve not been to many more. But, I do plan to see many more artists in concert in the future, and I thought today I’d share a list of those I have seen, and those I want to see, for nobody but myself to enjoy.

i miss high school a little bit?

a draft from july.

i remember, once, somebody told me: “you’ll miss high school.”

distinctly, i remember laughing at them. honestly, high school was the worst however many years of my life and i will never, ever miss high school. i’ll never look back and think, “oh, i miss this!” or go, “i totally miss having my teachers validate a boy telling me that i am a weeb and also anorexic by saying ‘he just likes you and wants you attention'”. do you think i’ll actually miss that?

however, i do miss high school for the socialness of it. even though i’m going to sixth form at the same high school, i am still going to 100% miss half of my friends who will be leaving me in september. i sat down and thought about all the memories i have made across my time at school and so, for sentimental purposes and for the fact that krdramas has been rotting for the past three months in silence, i decided to list all my memories in one. feel free to not read, i honestly don’t even care at this point.

chapter three: sixth form life

So, I’m back, and I’m a sixth form student.

I joined sixth form back in September, but never really got around to talking about it due to lack of time, and also lack of motivation to even attempt to write a blog post. However, we’re looking at blogs and different forms and styles of writing in my English class, and so I figured that writing on here more would be beneficial, and also super nice to help pass the time.

Additionally, I really just wanted an excuse to not sort through my history folder that is overflowing with work that is not in order, but I promise, that right after this, it shall be done. In the meantime, let’s catch up, shall we?

deep breaths.

exams are finally over.

i haven’t been on krdramas in over like 3 months which is insane- but for good reason. i honestly just did not have the time or motivation to sit down and write a post about how i feel, just to kind of validate that i am still a blogger, and that i am still alive.

well, yes, i’m alive, and yes, i’m still blogging. not always on here, but i’m always around. exams have finished, as said earlier, and i could not be happier about it. there were exams that i feel like could have been better, but i’m just hoping i’ve done enough to pass through nicely. fingers crossed.

i’ve been catching up on many tv shows lately and also slithered back into my xmen phase. honestly, can you blame me? the xmen movies are so freaking good. honestly, i haven’t dedicated my time to reading the comics yet, but i definitely want to in the future. will put it on my to-do-list.

while i’ve been gone i have also binge-watched all of the seasons of game of thrones. honestly why did i ever put off watching it? it’s seriously so good?

oh- and i also went to harry potter world. expect a video about that because it’s in the works and i’m proud of it.

just thought i’d pop by and say, hello, yes, i’m here. alive and breathing. exam free and fine. i hope you’re all doing well !

 

heart to heart.

you know, i read a story somewhere from a woman who said something along the lines of: “i am suicidal. but it’s not what you think.” she had a normal life, wasn’t harming herself, wasn’t particularly in a hard situation…it was just a constant feeling of “if i died, i wouldn’t mind,” and “wow, i actually feel like being dead would be easier.”

the fact that people from my school probably read my blog to screenshot and make fun of in group chats is the only reason why i felt hesitant to talk about this. but, honestly, i don’t really care- i use my blog to vent and to talk and so i will. today, on the 4th of april, i decided and completely came to the conclusion that i am suicidal. and it’s honestly not what you think.

hello, bridgnorth.

welcoming back the good old “hello…” series i started a while back, i decided to make a post dedicated to a trip i took a few days ago, (well, last weekend!) when me and my family packed up our necessities and travelled down to bridgnorth to visit a family member, and take photographs for my sister.

like always, bridgnorth never fails to leave me with a sentimental feeling in my stomach. honestly, i’m not too sure what it is about the place that makes me feel so warm and nostalgic, but i’ve been going there to visit my nan for as long as i can remember, and no matter how many times i visit, the effect will always be the same.

of course, bridgnorth has literally nothing to offer; i was actually shooketh when i found out that bridgnorth had a cinema! a cinema! wow, they’re really putting themselves out there!

but, beyond the fact that the only people who live there are old people and small families, and that the shops are small and antique and no matter where you turn there is always a super cute dog, which is the best thing ever, i actually really do love bridgnorth. would probably never voluntarily live there on my own (i do think i’d die of boredom if i did so), but still, i love the place. so, on my journey, i took a few pictures to upload onto instagram (some are already up there, some are dying in my camera roll!) and so i thought i’d share- as tradition- for the third (or fourth, who knows) installment of “hello…”!

louis newland forced me to write this-

he asked me to make a post about him so that’s what i’m doing. i told him he wasn’t my friend today but really he is, so, sorry louis. also i don’t know what to write about him because i honestly don’t know him at all, we’re just in the same engineering class, we’ve spoke like 3 times and to be honest i didn’t even know he knew who i was.

but yeah. sometimes engineering is dead and louis makes it funny. thanks. you make engineering that much more enjoyable. thanks for not being mean to me + actually talking to me sometimes because a lot of the time people just ignore me and it’s actually really sad
