My summer has continued to be absolutely fabulous. Over the weekend, I took a trip to Kansas City for one reason and one reason only: the One Direction concert! This is the closest they were going to be to St. Louis. This major event has been a long time coming. I bought tickets 13 months before the actual concert. I have never counted down the days for something for such a long time. But, the wait was all worth it. I took my cousin and the two girls that I babysit, and we had the time of our lives.
As soon as we got to the hotel, we got ready. We put on all our One Direction gear. Shirts, jewelry, shoes, tattoos, you name it. We already had our light-up posters finished. When we got to the Sprint Center, we waited outside for almost two hours before we finally got in. By the time we bought our souvenirs and such, we missed a little bit of the opener, a band called 5 Seconds of Summer. I wasn’t too concerned about that though. I just wanted 1D! When they first came out, I immediately started crying. When I see my favorite singers, I go absolutely crazy. I screamed and jumped the entire two and half hours that they performed. It was so much fun! They sang all the songs that I wanted them to. I wasn’t disappointed by anything. I was blown away. They sounded even better live than they do on CD. Despite all the screaming fans, I could still hear them (most of the time). I have tons of pictures and posters of One Direction all over my room (including a cardboard cutout), so it was extremely exciting to be able to see them live.
Now my major summer events have come to a close. I feel so lucky to have done so many fun things. The next thing to count down the days to is the start of the next school year!
