This picture was taken after the concert, and by that time I was sloshed. Let me take you on the journey of how I got to this state. Well, it’s pretty simple, beer.
The plan was to drink on the train then grab a few drinks and some food before the show. My friends Megan and Kadyn missed the train, so my friend Anna and I decided to keep drinking. At Union Station (Chicago) there’s a few bar options. So naturally, Anna and I shared a pitcher of beer while we waited for their train to get in. By the time we finished the pitcher their train was arriving, now at this point I’m pretty buzzed. I probably should’ve slowed down and stopped drinking until we got to Solider Field, but I’m 24 so I didn’t. All four of us girls took a shot of whiskey then started to make our way to the concert. We didn’t have any time to stop to get food. That was my other mistake, I didn’t eat anything.
Once we got to Solider Field I still had some of my vodka I had brought on the train, so we all pulled from this bottle then went into the stadium. I was lit by this time, yet still thought it was necessary to get a beer once I was inside. After getting our beers we waited in line to buy shirts. At this point I have no reconciliation of time and won’t for the rest of the night. What felt like waiting in line for only 10 minutes was probably close to a half an hour to 45 minutes. I’m pretty sure the mom’s in line were getting annoyed with us, because we were swearing up a storm. Examples “Fuck, I can’t believe we’re here” and “Harry Styles, God damn” After we got our shirts we took basic girl photos here’s one of them. (You can clearly see how gone I was. I’m the faux red head.)
Megan posted this picture with the caption “Harry Styles obviously isn’t referring to us when he sings ‘you don’t know you’re beautiful’ oh, we know!” haha! After this picture we headed to our seats, because 5 Seconds of Summer was starting. I love that 5 Seconds of Summer is on tour with One Direction. For the fact that 5SOS were just on the cover of Alternative Press magazine, and they’re on tour with such a huge boy band. It’s one step closer to breaking the stigma that comes along with genres.
I remember some of their set, but not much I did snag a few crappy iPhone pictures. Just to prove I was there, and actually seeing them. Here’s one of them:
Next is the part I don’t really remember which is the whole thing of One Direction’s set. I’m actually really upset with myself for getting so inebriated that I couldn’t remember little details of their set. I remember a lot of screaming and fireworks. I remember Harry Styles looking cute in all his hair changes (Long, wrapped in scarf, and in a man bun)
This next part is debauchery at it’s finest. I couldn’t finish the rest of my beer, and in my state of mind I thought it was acceptable to lean down towards the 9-year-old girl next to me and offer her the rest of my beer. Her mom yelled “No!” which I agree with her, but I ended up putting the beer in the girls cup holder then whispering “it’s there if you want it” then went back to singing whatever 1D song was being performed.
I’ve learned my lesson on never getting that drunk at a 1D concert ever again. Although, it did help me from becoming annoyed by all the little girls and their screams.
xx I was just trying to up the punk at One Direction. xx
From what I remember and the pictures I had a blast, I recommend going to see One Direction at least once in your life. All the video’s I took are solid evidence these boys are amazing performers. Here as some cruddy quality photos I took of the boys. Enjoy!
