It’s 2:22 AM and I should be sleeping right now but I think I’ve had too much coffee and tea today. I just came back from watching The 1975 and man, was it one hell of a hot mess.
(I just realised that I saw them for four times already)
Last August, Ms. Steph and I were talking about Karpos bringing Bastille here. Next thing we knew, we were all running backstage and Bastille were playing on stage. Have nothing to say, really, but the whole thing was quite unforgettable. TOP NIGHT TOP NIGHT TOP NIGHT
Damn. Year three and still present. You know what, Bazooka Rocks can be summarised in just four words: YOU ME AT SIX. Everyone can go home now. They owned the show. That’s it. They deserved the headliner title. They are monsters. Hands down. Do yourself a favour and watch them live!
I had the best birthday ever.
Last Sunday, I celebrated my 22nd birthday and twenty-two is such a weird age. I’m pretty sure I just turned eighteen few days ago.
Did you know that I was born when my mother was 22?
I just want you all to know that I invited The Maine, This Century, and Nick Santino for my birthday. No need to get jealous, guys. 😂 The concert fell on the day of my birthday so obviously the concert was my own party. Everything was wonderful – my favourite bands were playing, my friends were with me celebrating, and everyone was just really happy. I couldn’t really ask for more (Maybe except for meeting them? Hahaha!)
Liking One Direction has probably been the best and worst decision I’ve made as a fangirl.They just make me— in the words of Taylor Swift—happy, free, confused, and lonely at the same time. And to be honest, that’s an overwhelming feeling.
In case you haven’t heard of them, One Direction is an English boy band which finished in third place during the seventh season of UK X Factor.They didn’t win, but in the hearts of so many girls all over the globe they did. The group is comprised of Harry Styles, the curly-haired bloke; Niall Horan, the Irish snowflake; Louis Tomlinson, the sassiest of them all; Liam Payne, daddy direction also known as the guy who shaved his head; and Zayn Malik, aka the guy who went full drag for the Best Song Ever music video, aka Zayn I’m-sorry-but-he’s-prettier-than- you Malik.
I fell for the One Direction trap soon after watching their video diaries and What Makes You Beautiful like a woman possessed. They just look nice and fun and really stupid and I may or may not have convinced myself that I can take Harry home, introduce him to my parents, and someday marry him. I was sold.
Here are the reasons why I, and maybe you, love One Direction.
They are all undeniably charming.
JUST. LOOK. AT. THOSE. FACES. I sometimes want to believe that God worked overtime creating them. Bonus points: British accent.
They can sing and they are pretty good at it.
To the haters out there who claim that they can’t sing: I’m sorry but they can.They’re a product of a singing competition and have made it through the finale. So of course they can sing. Have you heard Zayn belt out that “best song ever” line in falsetto? He has the best voice ever.
They worked hard for everything they have.
Their big break started during their tenure as an X Factor hopefuls, but their success didn’t happen overnight. Long hours away from home, endless radio and TV promotions, meet and greets, tireless hours at the studio, months on the road. They’re currently doing their second headlining tour (Take Me Home) and have recently wrapped up its American leg.They have been away from home since February and will continue to be on the road until October. That’s eight months straight of hard work and dedication!
