I experienced my pop culture moment when I was a senior at my high school. My transportation to go to my school was buses. I took the same buses to school from freshman year, but I have never noticed what I notice in my senior year. Every morning I wake up to go to school at 8 a.m. I would see people going to work, schools etc. but one day I notice there was a group of white women who is going to their work wearing sari (sari is a garment which is long and usually it’s draped around women’s body. Asian women mostly wear it). I found that very odd because they didn’t look like to me that they would know anything about the roots of sari or the culture. I thought they were mocking the culture because the saris that they wearing weren’t 100% correct. I used to see them wearing traditional Indian cloth and I
Sorry if you get annoyed by the obsession that I have for Twenty One Pilots it's just that they make me so happy and I can't get myself to not talk about them. I do have self control its just when new music comes out or they tweet or something as small as that, I get so excited because it makes it all real for me. That their actually real people, real guys just making music to help them get through the day also, when I saw them live in September that just made it so real for me it's completely different seeing them in person then just listening to live videos. I could feel the love in the room, I could tell that every person in the venue cared about me and wanted me to live through the dark times. That day was the best day that I've had in a long time seeing them live made me realize how thankful I am for them and how important their music means to me, and how different my life would be if I didn't know TØP or the clique. I know I say this for every band that I listen to but for some reason it's different with TØP then it is with Pierce The Veil or Of Mice And Men. I guess it's just that my friends actually can listen and in my moms words "understand what their saying." TØP is special to me because they make my life seem like it has a purpose that just because I'm having a bad day or week or month that that's no reason to hurt myself in any way. Josh and Tyler give me hope for the future and makes bad memories seem less negative and more meaningful that without those negative nights then I wouldn't be who I am today. Their music helps me get through the day, which I know sounds dramatic or stupid but it's true they make me so so so happy and I'm sorry if that annoys you.
As a teenager in their high school years, there is a definite shift in my music taste from elementary and middle school to where I am today. Looking back, I listened to classical music as a snob, thinking “music isn’t as good as it used to be”, and assuming that I am the best just because I exclusively listened to what I thought was “refined.” Of course, tastes change. As I transitioned to high school I was curious about rock. One of the first bands I got into was The Strokes, especially their debut album, “Is This It”.
First of all I was in my dark room with the only light being my t.v, I playing Xbox with my friend Skylar, we were playing Rainbow Six Siege a counter terrorism shooter. It was a late on a dark, stormy night, it was bomb objective and only I was left on the team to face five other enemies defusing the bomb and I slowly and stealthy with his silenced pistol picked off about two enemies outside the objective roaming and then pulled out his primary the 416-C Assault Rifle and went in blazing in the objective and his heart was racing he picked off another two enemies and that’s when he began guarding the defuser waiting to find the last enemy. “Can you search cams Skylar?” I asked Skylar.
Twenty-One Pilots are the first act to top pop songs and alternative songs. Back in February 21 of 2017 was one of the best days of my life. That date was when I went to my favorite band’s concert in Tulsa, Oklahoma. I will never forget that date, it took place at the BOK Center were many artists go to perform. My mom and I went, my dad also but he didn’t go to the concert. I got two tickets because I thought one of my friends could go with me but they could not afford it. All the money we spent that week was worth it I do not regret anything.
I was going to be able listen to one of my favorite artist perfrom live. I get to hear his amazing vocals love and be only like twenty feet away. My mom called me and told me some bad news. She tried to win this auction contest to win a one on one moment with Jake Miller but lost. My heart was sherred to pieces but I soon realized who cares I still will be seeing him. It was now only two days before the concert and my mom told me to come to her room she has good news. I thought it was something about my dads birthday since its in like two days, But I was wrong. She told me to go on the computer and type in Cute Boy Party. I did and that’s the moment I saw that I was going to meet Jake Miller. My mom ended up buying Cute Boy Party tickets which is where you can meet Jake Miller, Rixiton, Shawn Mendes and Jacob Whitesides. I loved all these people butof course I was more exicted I was going to meet Jake Miller. I thanked and loved her about a hundred bazillion
I grew up listening to country music since my mother loved it so much. It was her favorite thing to listen to when we would go on long road trips with my father and younger brother throughout the years. Unfortunately, since I listened to it so much, I starting disliking it when I became a teenager. I started believing that country music was only for “older” people. I also thought it was boring and wasn’t the “cool type of music” teenagers are supposed to listen to. I eventually grew out of that stage and started listening to country music again a few years later. The reason I started listening to it again was because of one amazing country artist. My best friend invited me to a Luke Bryan concert in Las Vegas in 2010. At first I was iffy about it since I wasn’t a huge country music fan like her, but then I watched some videos of Luke’s performances and he seemed like a very talented artist. I decided to give it a shot and go. What I thought was going to be an average concert, turned out to be the best concert of my life! Luke put on an amazing performance and touched my heart in so many ways. I pictured
I have loved music since I was born, it has always been there for me. Although I love all genre of music my favorite has to be country music. You can interpret so much from one verse of music. From kindergarten to fourth grade I was in the school talent show singing. I loved getting on that stage and showing people what I could do.
I found relaxing bamboo flute music on YouTube when I was doing bad in school. This soothing flute music helped me to control all my built up energy. I feel like this music helped me to concentrate and it also helped me focus. It was during the middle of freshman year I realized that I had a lot of trouble concentrating so I looked up relaxing music. Once I heard the bamboo flute I felt it calm me down. Like when I listen to this music I can concentrate better. When ever I am upset or angry I put this song on and my feelings just go away, it's like the music puts me into a dreamland. Growing up I always would have a hard to paying attention and concentrating but when I heard the bamboo flute I felt like it changed me.
Going into the fall 2014 semester, my family was not in a good place financially, and I was not mentally. Our income had been reduced, meaning I had to step up to help my family. This caused my already weakened mental state to become even more strained and took a toll on me physically. I was not able to concentrate on anything at school, work, and home, it was almost in a blur. When I resigned from the fall 2014 semester, I knew it was something that was needed to make sure I stayed healthy, mentally and physically. Two years went by and I found myself in a better place. Going into the fall 2016 semester, I found the perfect balance between studying, work, and home life. In the end I exceeded all the expectations I had set for myself in every
“Petlon get in there,”Coach said. At first I was like what does he mean. I was confused because at the time Eli was a better center. I figured I should hustle out there and give it my best try, so that’s what I did.
My Singstunde choices depict some aspects of my ongoing journey of finding meaning and finding my place in this life. Recently, I have been faced with uncertainty concerning who I am and what I want to contribute to this world. This is my last semester of my Senior year at Regis and I feel so thankful for the specific purposeful educational opportunity that I have been granted. Now, it is my turn to figure out how to live a meaningful life and how to best use this amazing Jesuit education. I hope that the Jesuit ideals, that have grown so close to my heart, can help inform a path to helping others in the most effective way that I personally can accomplish given my personality, strengths and weaknesses. While I know this searching for the right
This was the first day of the music festival, Woodstock. I could feel the butterflies in my stomach as April looked back at me, her smile bright like the sun or that awful salmon colored shirt. April was bursting with excitement as she jump up and down while others stared at her. It was probably because they never seen a pregnant woman jump. April was rich, 9 month pregnant widow who models for a living. She loved music so much, she was willing to go to a crowded, claustrophobic area just for music, even if she was about to burst. I thought it was going to be a simple ‘listen to groovy music and head home’. I never thought that April would get mad mood swings, lose herself in a wave of people, and actually break her water.
The unrelenting struggle to climb the summit of my darkened soul yields a somnambulatory existence. Reality’s crushing gravity renders me a lifeless zombie trapped in the circuitous game of functioning. How do I go on when my body reeks of failure and pain?
The faint sound of music slowly becomes clearer approaching the stadium. The sound of exciting screams and singing lingers in the air. It is every millennial teenage girl's fantasy: a One Direction concert. A concert can be entertaining and exhilarating because one gets to see a favorite artist and experience something new.
