Take a few minutes to put yourself in the place I was last night...
Last night, the 25th of August was no normal Tuesday. One Direction performed in Milwaukee for the first time in their 5 year history as a band.
As you know, I've been a fan and have supported them since 2011, parts of 2012 I wasn't because of pressure from people around me, Isn't that greatttt. But guess what? I don't care anymore of what anyone thinks of what I listen to or what I like.
Almost one year ago, October 2014, they announced they would be coming to Milwaukee, obviously I was excited and wanted to go. Without going into detail of the months between October and May (not the greatest time of my life to be completely honest!!), I had some trouble actually getting someone to go with me. My wonderful friend agreed to go with me finally. Our tickets arrived in May and I started counting down the days...
Last night it came to life. Of course I still feel like it was a dream. The fact that they were in front of me is incredible. My favorite songs live was just surreal.
Proud to admit, I cried almost the entire show and regret none of that. My arms hurt and I was thirsty and hungry but I gave it my all to really live in that moment because like I had prepared myself to be, it was the best day of my entire life.
I had never been so excited in my entire 16 years. Now, I have never been as sad that something was over or missed people so much.
The music, the people... just amazing. (Living proof last night that Directioners aren't 12. We were when we started liking them, obviously! Mostly everyone was my age or older!)
I know they say similar things each show, but the sincerity was real. They meant every word. They really did love it here, I could tell.
Do you know what its like to have 4 favorite people that you have never met or until yesterday, seen, but completely trust them and love them more than anything else? Well I do. Because who was there when no one else was? They were. They may not know the details, but they realize that people feel this way and it makes them so thankful. I could not ask for a better group of people to support and love. The awards we help them win by tweeting hashtags endless times a day, the songs we trend and get to the top charts without anyone else promoting it? I love this family of Directioners and I love Harry. Niall. Louis and Liam more than anything. They have made my life more exciting, given me something to really be passionate about and something that I have made so many friends through. Think of all the lessons I've learned from just loving a band! Crazy. Maybe you think I'm overdoing it, but other people feel this way too and I cannot explain how happy I was last night to finally see them.
I am still in disbelief.
As a plus, Niall's hair was so fluffy and Louis had his the way I like it the most and Harry.. his hair is always perfect and Liam's is always in perfect place. They all wore the outfits I had hoped they would, that was fantastic LOL.
And they played four different 5SOS music videos before and I got to see them on the big screen <3
And when Harry threw water into the crowd from his bottle, I was hit with it... I'VE BEEN GIVEN NEW LIFE :')
They talked about our state and that they loved it here. They talked about cheese and the Packers and how excited they were. They said they loved us and were so thankful. And I knew they meant it.
I wish I could thank them personally, but until that day I'm gonna keep doing what I am now.
Here are the best of the terrible quality pictures I took!
Unbelievable. Best day of my life <3
