So. I just want to say how much I love my school.
No, not everything about it is perfect. But it’s perfect for me. And it’s been such an amazing experience.
Every year the Student Programming Board has a spring concert. This year they named it Pacific Sounds. Which I think was very fitting.
The past couple of years haven’t been very good… especially compared to my Freshman year when they brought in Thick as Thieves, Matt & Kim, and Imagine Dragons. But when I heard that Us the Duo would be performing this year I HAD to go. Cause well… they’re talented… and they’re 100% relationship goals…

The concert was TOTALLY my speed. I’m not a huge fan of giant crowds of people all shoving each other to get closer to the stage. It’s just not very fun for me.
But this concert was super low key and had my favorite kind of summer vibes.
(cool nights. good music. good people.)

The vibe of the concert was very Coachella inspired. Which excited me because I’m broke as a joke and can’t actually afford to go to Coachella. (so if anyone just happens to have an extra ticket… feel free to slide it this way. I’d give an arm and a leg to see Gun’s ‘n Roses…)
I was happy to see that I wasn’t the only one getting into the festival fashion… I legit started going up to people asking to take pictures of them…
And they were more than happy to oblige…
That hair though…
Isn’t she adorable? I
want need those pants. Pronto.
Through the night I started to notice something. Something that made me blissfully happy.
Music has such an incredible way of bringing people together. At nearly every concert or festival I’ve been to I’ve noticed how happy and kind people are to each other. People just want to enjoy themselves and drink in the talent before them.

It’s a beautiful kind of camaraderie that I wish existed past music… But nevertheless, I’m glad it exists somewhere in this world. ♥
I haven’t been able to participate in a lot of the events at my school this year, which is sad being that it’s my last. But this was the perfect way to begin my departure from college.
Bottom line. If you were unable to attend this year, make it a point to go next year. Even if it’s a band you’ve never heard of, or someone who just isn’t your style, go anyway. The tickets are cheap and the experience is just fun.
