As most of you know- I headed home this weekend to visit my family and to see the Boyfriend. On Saturday we headed to Seattle to see the band Apocalyptica and I learned a few valuable lessons…
1. ALWAYS wear comfortable shoes when going to Seattle.
I wore my pink vans slip-ons a seen here:
I have worn these shoes more times than I can count- they are FULLY broken in… or so I thought. Tristan and I ended up walking miles and I mean MILES around Seattle before attending our show later that night. BAD idea. My feet were KILLING me. First of all, I wore socks that were TOO short and were TOO thin. I’m pretty sure I have blisters EVERYWHERE now. Okay, sorry for the caps, just trying to show you how much pain I’m feeling.
2. Don’t walk 5 miles before staying up until 1 a.m. for a show.
I was SOOO tired. Not only did my feet hurt, as mentioned before. But my entire body ached. I could feel my joints crying (man do I sound like an old lady). But seriously… it’s too hard to stay up that late!
3. Don’t forget ear plugs when going to a concert!
UGH, I have ear plugs… and I forgot them. What kind of speech and hearing sciences major am I? I literally could feel my inner ear hair cells dying. I’m going to be Deaf at 21, due to noise exposure!
4. Dir En Grey sucks.
