Yesterday is definitely a day I will remember for a long time. It all started with an early morning train ride with Liv, reminiscing old Lights guild and show memories, guild drama, gaming feels. We waited by ourselves for an hour or two, me bringing my APUSH review book of course. ;) Soon enough Jedd, Eguene and Johnny arrive. It became Jedd’s mission to convert me into an ATL fan (which didn’t happen) and to discuss all his Victoria Justice feels. Soon enough Dan, Kristina, RON, Panda, Lauren and so much more eventually joined us on line. This day was literally so much fun reminiscing Lights memories. The whole day was “#thestruggle”. Me and Jedd had our own unforgettable adventure looking for a bathroom ahah. Lights arrived from her Livestream and agreed to spend some time with us even though there were about 15-20 fans in line. Girls who had just arrived pushed everyone out of the way taking up a majority of the little time she could stay out when she was already late to soundcheck. Ron got the funniest “mean face” picture with Lights to snapchat to Nick. Me and Liv and a few other of our friends were able to take quick selfies with her, but she promised she would keep an eye out for us Saturday. Johnny gave Lights an awesome katana. Lights had to go back in leaving Panda selfieless even though she came all the way from Florida, but Lights did not dissapoint and tweeted her a little something. I also got a free sandwich from someone( which was drug free YES), we saw walking foliage and Lauren handed the crew some free home made Lights stickers. Although we were all exhausted the day prevailed when we got awesome seats. Lauren was talking to Ryan(Sarah but she now wants to be called Ryan for professional reasons) and Ryan VENTED her HATE of Carly Rae Jepsen and how she acted like an obsessive boyfriend. Ryan had to sign all her autographs for her and she was never allowed to call her Mom or text friends. Finally the show started and I have to say I am definitely impressed with the way Lights has grown in personality, talent and as a whole person. It was lovely even though I only got to hear a few songs because I had to make my train for my APUSH exam this morning. Although I am half asleep and sunburnt as I write this, I wanted to vent out my feels, although probably boring and with many errors. I wish I could go back and do it all over even with all our lame puns. To next time when we all show up with crutches. ;)

About to take the train to see Ellie in NYC. Excited out of my mind. :”)
Not so much for waiting in the cold for hours but hey it’s Ellie
Yesterday was so incredible I have no way to explain it! It all started with an awesome sleepover with my friend Livvy into an awesome car ride with her & my mom laughing our asses off. We get to the venue at a little after 9 and during that time i take out my AP work ahaha. Not soon after a girl named Gabby comes in line to see the Arkells. She was so sweet, and I’m so glad I got to meet her. After, my friend Stephanie, her boyfriend and awesome friends came. And then finally the lovely Kayla(of Lights-love), Ben and Melissa make their way to us! Not soon after, I had asked my mom to charge my phone in the Starbucks right across the street. Suddenly 30 minutes later my mom texts my friend Liv that Lights and Beau had just came into the starbucks to a table across from her on the second floor. She said they were holding hands but still on their phones at the same time ahaha. None of us wanted to go inside to bother Beau and Lights, so my mom went up to Lights to ask for a picture because she had never got one before. She was like ” I’ve met Def Leppard so many times, but for some reason I’m shaking meeting you. ” (theyre an old band who wrote Pour Some Sugar On Me (shes friends with them LOL)) Lights was like ” I love Def Leppard!” and Beau was freaking out ” YOU MET RICK ALLEN? ” (Hes a drummer with one arm) Then my mom said how her daughter and friends were here, and Beau was like ” Is she down there? I’ll take a picture” Lights had asked who I was and when my mom showed her she’s like “:O Stefanie!” . Then not long after Beau went to my Mom’s table and asked how to spell Cheesesteak ahaha. I met so many people, and so many guildies! <3 Me and Liv went walking around and found an awesome comic store where we spent an hour discussing feels. The only let down was that the venue was beyond disorganized.. there was confusion with lines and this group of fans who came HOURS later were bashing on me and my friends for hours on end. I had even tweeted Lights about it. I was so upset that around 6 I went to this restauraunt near by with Liv to calm down and get hot cocoa and Lights and Beau went in only a few minutes later! Lights pulled us to the side and hugged me saying she had seen my tweets and that this was still going to be an awesome show. I will never stop saying how she is beyond wonderful. Nonetheless, me and my friends got front row and had an awesome time. The Arkells were AMAZING. The lead singer took Gabby’s phone during her request song and took videos of himself. Lights finally went on and her vocals were SO good! I had met a super nice girl named Brooke and she was like ” LETS DEATH WALL TO HEAVY ROPE”. Lights and the Arkells had done a duet for “Siberia” and ” You Make My Dreams” and wore my friends’ jacket that she gave her while singing it! The concert was beyond amazing. It’s just funny how such a rough time can turn into one of the best times in your life :}
I see Ellie tomorrow! I’m BEYOND excited. The venue sold out in less than 5 minutes, so it’s going to be super intimate and small, where she’ll be within grasp. This is going to be so awesome.
