+ I went to a free concert yesterday and this is how it went. I woke up at a ridiculously early hour to get to the venue early. Parking was far away. The line was humungous. At least 2 miles when we got there (later it was wayyyyy longer). We stood in line for 2 and a half hours. The air was misty and muggy. I admit, I was stupid for not checking the weather but I really thought it was gonna be a hot day! So I was dressed according to summer weather because it's summer, you know?
Anyway, we FINALLY got into the gated outdoor venue. The concert started 2 hours late too, so that was annoying. The first act to come on was Finish Ticket and they're a little indie band and their music is realllyyyy good so I was happy to see them. I was probably the only person there who knew them....
We didn't have blankets/umbrellas/warmclothing/patience so when it started to rain, I was completely drenched and slightly irked. Like why did it have to rain? Another artist came on, Ginny Blackmore, her Kiwi accent was adorable but her music was.... okay. So it's like pouring really hard and I'm shivering to death in my thin top and open-toed shoes [I am stupid, yes I know]. We're like trying to be upbeat and positive and try to enjoy the show but there comes a point where you realize, No, I do /not/ want to get frostbite and/or die. So my friends walk a million miles to the car to get umbrellas [which were thankfully in the trunk]. But when they come back they don't let them in!! They closed the gates. Utterly stupid. Of course I'm not going to stay by myself inside so I leave too.
That's my semi-depressing story. I missed Sara Bareilles and Ed Sheeran [who was 3 hours late to the show]. I'm actually not upset because it was mostly my fault. Besides, I don't like Sara /that/ much. But Ed.... my Ed....
I'm kinda happy about it, like it's a funny story I guess in a way. It was kind of fun too. My first outdoor concert. And I've never been to a rainy concert, so that was a first. Yay! Okay! That's all! :)
+ I'm obsessed with The Big Bang Theory. I've only seen 6 episodes so far and it's so funny! Love it!
+ That's all for today. Gotta run!
