May Playlist 2019

Here are all the songs I listened to in the month of May! To be completely honest, I listened to less than I usually do. I did jam to the 1975 most of the month in preparation and after the concert I went to. But, I only put two of their songs that I seemed to be listening to way more than the rest of their music. Hopefully, you find some new music today! If you want to listen, here’s a link to the spotify playlist.

I Drove to Atlanta and Visited Two Bookstores

So, I recently drove to Atlanta to see the 1975 in concert. It was one of the best concert experiences of my life but I had an extra few hours to go do something in Atlanta so automatically, I looked up bookstores in Atlanta. I found two next to each other that I really wanted to go to so I went!

First, I visited Charis Books & More (A Feminist Bookstore)! It’s set up in a little, cozy home in Decatur.

This is literally my dream bookstore. All I read is books on feminism, feminist lit, etc. I also read a lot of social science books which is what most of their books would be categorized under. They had a bunch of cute knick knacks too and I wish I could’ve gotten some but I felt rushed by my dad so I just got the book I was originally looking for. I ended up getting the Stonewall Reader edited by the New York Public Library. I truly wish I could’ve spent more time in this bookstore and more money but I was already kind of late to check in at the hotel so I had to leave.

After that, I decided to drive to Half Priced Books down the street. It wasn’t very far from this bookstore so why not. I also have always heard bookstagrammers/booktubers going to Half Priced Books and finding insanely good deals so I finally decided to visit. I wasn’t entirely impressed at the organization but it was probably just random customers faults. (There was just a lot of randomly misplaced books). I was looking for a very different titles that are fairly new so I’m not surprised I didn’t find them. I ended up getting Vox by Christina Dalcher because It’s on my TBR for this year. Hopefully, I’ll get around to it!

And of course, after visiting both these bookstores, I saw the 1975 live. I’ve gone to a few concerts in my lifetime. I’d say about seven shows maybe? I’ve never been to an amphitheater show, though. This was at the Chastain Park amphitheater in Atlanta and wow, it was beautiful. It was so hot but It’s okay because my makeup melted off during the continuous hours of dancing. I have never felt more myself than I did at this concert and I’m so happy I randomly spent the money and decided to go. The 1975 have such great stage presence and I love Matty so much that seeing him in person just felt special. If he just sat there and talked, I wouldn’t even mind.

My favorites songs that they performed were probably

  • You
  • I Like America & America Likes Me
  • I Always Wanna Die (Sometimes)
  • Love It If We Made It

I’m not kidding, I freaked out when they decided to do encore and start off with Love It If We Made It. It’s my favorite song of the new album and it means so much to me for so many different reasons. I feel so lucky to have seen them live and I hope everyone else who listens to them someday gets the chance to as well.

I’m definitely going to buy tickets to their next tour because I’ve never danced at a concert like that. I didn’t even care about embarrassing myself or anything. It was so, so great.
