I did find out while watching the show that she was known as the “Dancing Violinist”. So, on November 28th me and my husband went to the Tobin Center for Performing Arts in San Antonio, TX. What greet us there was a long line of people waiting to go in. After an hour in the cold waiting to go in we were finally able to go in to our seats. I was almost ready to go home and say forget the concert, an hour of waiting in the cold while being 34 weeks pregnant was not fun, but Lindsey Stirling came out and the crowd went wild with excitement.
“Wake up,” My mom whispered. It was 6AM in the morning, and my family of four--my brother, my mom, my dad, and I--were packed up to take a roadtrip to Georgia, Alabama. Two of my families live in the area where we were going, and one of them was the family we were staying two nights with. The other family was my Uncle who planned everything, and everyone except my Aunt in that family was the one who didn’t know most of the family was coming to surprise her. When we arrived in Georgia, we slept overnight, then the next day, we had that family visit.
After all the research on her mother “Amanda JoHanson” they got mostly what they need. They found one specific address under some of Amanda’s most recent pictures uploaded, that read “305 Caution Dr. Los Angeles, CA, 90001”. Right away the girls book plane tickets for California, their soonest flight was May 9th and it was February 27th. Frank still has no idea, but their investigation started weeks ago. Carla has mentioned about taking Scarlett to her “school field trip” and that she is the parent chaperone, Frank didn’t question it much, just said “whatever, have fun”.
The somewhat empty Colosseum was full today. Poor and rich alike chatter among others, excitement building within as they all discuss the same event. The gladiator games are about to start. From where we sat in the Colosseum, I could see that the gladiator games were about to begin. My little brother Lars was bouncing erratically in his seat, the excitement visibly bouncing off of him.
Mia, Emma, Callie, Nate, Kyle and Ian; they had all been planning their Orlando trip for months, exams had finally ended and Spring Break was just starting. Everyone met at Emma’s to grab the cab that was taking them to the airport. After they went through security, Nate gathered everybody around and said, “Let's go over our plans for the week, guys.” “We’re going to Disney World to have the best time of our lives!,” Mia excitedly mentioned. All of them squealed and jumped while getting onto the plane; as they did, they were handed a brochure by the steward. Since Kyle is the only observer and the one who’s always reading, even the back of a cereal box, he ended up noticing the peculiar topics on the front page.
It’s always quite a spectacular thing to witness, being in an entire stadium full of people singing along to the same song and being a part of the same experience together. Even Bublé seemed to recognize that, as he delivered a touching message to the fans before singing the emotional “Home”. It wasn’t long before the misty-eyed Bublé brought back to the party that he had promised, as he made his way through the crowd while singing Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” accompanied by his opening act, Naturally 7 – an electric a cappella group from New York. They brought back Motown in a rendition of Michael Jackson’s “Who’s Loving You”, which was just as soulful as the original itself. He then topped it off by singing, “All You Need is Love” – complete with heart-shaped confetti raining down on the crowd, before returning back to the main stage for the finale.
They’ve been trying to find that fountain for months; they’ve searched every article on the Internet that relates to it. In less than forty-five minutes, we frantically packed up our necessities and were all ready to go. The trip to Marble Forest took eight hours, so to pass time, I read a book called The House of the Scorpion by Nancy Farmer. I am not much of a reader, but this book blew me away. I was so engrossed with the book, I just had to finish it.
I had my eyes set on a seat which all my friends rushed over, too. On the intercom in the train the next stop was ours. The teachers tried to calm everyone down since the students had a lot of adrenaline in them. Ms. Ticki Wicki: “Everyone settle down. Our exit is to the left.” Me: “There are two staircases on the left which one?” I always thought that she reminded me of someone from a television show that was based on Hawaii because of her facial expressions and the way she talks.
There were two in total. The vocal wore a grey jeans-style suit, while the keyboard player looked like a student wearing a red hoodie. The singer was a showman, leaping up from his bench after every song, pumping his fists, pointing into the audience, blowing kisses, trying to goose up the already enthusiastic crowd. Then
We stayed till around eight, and then we left being excited for the next year. Going to this music festival started a great hobby of going to concerts with friends, and is somthing I still continue to do today. Even though I was only thirteen when I went to this festival; I still remember it to this day. So all together, it was a great experience all of the music the people how everyone got excited when the bands were about to play how they kept that energy through the concert is something I will not
