Extravaganza 2013 my first “concert” experience.
I was sick AF, coming up with a fever, coughing everywhere, and having stuffed/runny nose. I stayed completely sober. But at least I got to see all my friends<3 Here is the lineup that I came for.
JBoog: Reggae/island music. I really enjoyed this a lot. I was just dancing and chilling to it. It was nostalgic and I felt like I was in back Hawaii because I listened to this kind of music all the time. Reggae/island music is played in restaurants, stores, festivals, open events, etc. Makes me kinda miss it. People were smoking weed openly with no fucks given. I wouldn’t have mind at all but I have breathing problems, chest congestion, and uncontrollable coughing. I kept gagging from suffocation.
Dada Life: It was fun jumping up and down. But wearing sweat that isn’t yours was disgusting. In addition, people jumping on your feet felt so amazing -.-; Here’s the best part: this larger sized girl was bent down all the way on the ground, grinding on her sweaty guy friend legitly right next to me and I had no space for shit anymore. And whenever they jumped, they kept moving backwards and stepping on my feet so I had to keep pushing them back forward. It wasn’t enough the everyone was sticky but the guy had hairy arms and kept rubbing against my skin and it just felt really gross. It was fun when they threw bananas in the crowd doe. and my ucsb song “Happy Violence” came on <3 I had to go out like half way because I could not breathe and legitly was suffocating from all the body heat and smoke.
I like some of his songs but honestly, it was kind of boring. Maybe because I wasn’t in the crowd. But plus he was just rapping live. I don’t understand the big deal when I can just hear his songs in better quality. Maybe I just don’t really appreciate concerts.. plus it was my first one so yeah. We jumped a lot of gates like yolo. At least this was all for FREE. Because 4/10 would not pay.
I hope next year I won’t be sick and it’ll be much more fun. I plan to go every year ^ ^
language barrier sucks. Especially when you’re trying to speak with someone on the phone regarding something important. Customer service includes being able to effectively communicate with customers, clients, etc. I wasted more 30 minutes trying to explain to the front desk that I needed an appointment and it is just so unnecessary. same goes for teachers. when they have thick accents and can’t understand your question. I understand that in america, we obviously are the most diverse but it just bothers me because it’s so difficult to understand. Yes, they’re trying to make a living and props to them for getting the job and working hard but goddammit. -.-
