Am I really happy?

Hey all!

So, tonight at dinner my sister asked my mom if she was happy. She said she was, but there where a few “bumps” in the road. Then my mom asked my sister and I. It really got me thinking. Am I really happy? I also didn’t really want to hurt my mom and sister’s feelings by saying that I wasn’t happy where I am. I don’t like being home because I hate not having something to do. At school, I have my friends, classes, sorority life, and etc. to keep me busy. Where as I’m at home, I have a few friends, who are currently home, and not out of the country studying/working abroad. So, at home I’m really struggling to keep busy, and make myself happy. I’m the kind of person that needs to keep busy at all times, or else I get really board and depressed.

But I can’t say that I’m not happy because I have my family, I have a nice home, and a great life. So all in all, I’m a pretty content with life at the moment, and I’m going to continue with my life, and hope for the the best.

that’s all for now.

Buff (Noun)

Buff: a soft, thick, light-yellow leather with a napped surface, originally made from buffalo skin but later also from other skins, used formaking belts, pouches, etc.

This word is a lot harder to write about; mostly because I didn’t really know this use of the word before hand. I also google image searched it, but it wasn’t what the definition says it was. When I think of the word “buff”, in general, is when someone works out often and has a lot of muscles so he’s buff; but that isn’t what the definition means at all. So, for this topic, I’m done with because I don’t know what to write about this word.

Detonate: What does it mean?

The first thing I did before I started to type, before I even hit respond to prompt, was look up the word Detonate. According to Dictionary.com, the first definition that pops up is:

to explode with suddenness and violence.

This could  go for anything; the first thing that came to my mind when I saw the definition was like the atomic bombs, or bombs in general. Then I thought about it a little more, and realized that the definition is very broad. Meaning this could be talking about people who bottle up their feelings and lash out and random times. Or like I said bombs- they can detonate at anytime. Or fireworks.
This didn’t work out as well as I thought it was going to, but there it is. my daily one word prompt response- it’s pretty boring, and I’m sorry for that.

The Chainsmokers IRL.

Yesterday, I went to the Chainsmokers concert at Merriweather Post Pavilion. I got up bright and early to get ready. Then, my big/best friend, Brooke, came and picked me up to go to the concert. We both where so excited because we have been waiting for this concert for months now. We left my house and made our way downtown, aka Columbia, MD.

We should up an hourish before we where supposed to be there, which was at 2:30. We had the VIP tickets, so that means we got there early, and got some surprises: a hat, a signed poster, and a VIP pass; we also had the chance to listen to the sound check. Which was cool, at first, but we had to sit and wait for 2+ hours without food or water for the sound check. You would think that they would inform us about how there might be a wait, so the people with these tickets can bring food, water, etc.

Finally, at 5, we got to see the sound check, and then they shoved us behind this gate where we had to pay for food, drinks, and etc. We weren’t allowed to leave from the gated area. About 15 minutes later, we were moved to our section, and Brooke and I got right up on the gate, which was amazing. We spent the whole show right up on the gate.

I was a little worried about the first opener because sometimes they aren’t the best, but this guy was awesome, his DJ name is Lost Frequencies (if you’re really into EDM, I highly recommend listening to him!). Then the second opener, who was Kiiara, who’s music I loved before hand, was AMAZING. I really should have brought a portable charger because at this point my phone was at like 20%, which I wasn’t too mad about because I was enjoying the show.

Finally, the moment we where all waiting for: The Chainsmokers. They were amazing. I had a blast dancing, singing, jumping along to the music. I honesty had so much fun at the concert.

There was a slight bump in the road: there was a girl who was standing next to me, and was literally screaming. SCREAMING. the lyrics to The Chainsmokers. Like there isn’t anything wrong to singing along, because I was too, but this girl was legit screaming at the top of her lungs to legit every song. She also elbowed me and kept pushing me, but I didn’t really let that bother me because it was General Admission.

But, all in all, I had a blast and I would totally see the Chainsmokers in a heartbeat.
