I'm in a pretty damn good place right now:
I won't say this week has been the most spectacular, but I feel myself growing as a person in so many facets and I'm beginning to love myself a bit more everyday. It's so fulfilling to stop giving a shit about hypothetical nothings and just focus on the present. Case in point, last night's The 1975 concert:
This concert means so much to me, because it's one of the first initiatives I've taken to living life with no ragrets.
[EDIT: HALSEY WAS AT THE CONERT TOO. I WAS IN THE SAME ROOM AS HALSEY AND THE 1975]
To set the context, I was in a really depressed mood the day I became a fan of The 1975 because-at the time-I realized getting a summer internship at Mattel didn't solve all my existential and creative frustrations.
In the addictive habit of checking out the latest music videos on YouTube, I saw their "Somebody Else" video pop up in the recent releases. I wasn't going to click, but my unrequited crush had mentioned weeks ago that his brothers made fun of him for looking like the lead singer, so I thought why not fully indulge myself in the pity party.
The first time I saw Matty's face in the music video, I thought "Fuck me, I'm in for something."
I was right, because I spent the next few weeks watching all their interviews and crushing hard over him (still not sure if this was just a displacement of my original crush). But I'm not writing about them to gush over Matty's looks; I'm writing because their interviews helped me to grow my philosophy on unapologetically pursuing my creativity, essentially just doing whatever the fuck I want.
Sometime during this revelationary period, I saw a FB event for their LA concert, and I kept thinking in past tense how I was going to regret missing it. Then I realized how stupid it was to have premeditated regret and decided to see if Natalie, who never listened to them before, wanted to go.
Apparently, I was meant to go to this concert because Natalie loved their music and was immediately down. I found myself ordering tickets at Mattel while my mentors were at a meeting and that's how I ending up having an amazing time last night.

I need more adventures like this ❤️ (next plan of action: convert Natalie into an Ariana Grande fan in time for her March LA concert)
