Big Time Rush!!
No big deal, I was totally hanging out with these guys last week.
So here's the story:
Y98 and Walgreen's (I think?) were sponsoring a contest - whichever high school cast the most votes at a Walgreen's in the area won a concert by BIG TIME RUSH at their school.
And the lovely girls of my high school just voted and voted and voted their hearts out.
And then they came.
They played for a half hour, in our gym, this past Thursday.
We were all pretty excited.
And if you think I'M excited, well, you should've heard the buzz of the 401 girls in the hallways...
This is my favorite song. Keep in mind, I've only listened to one of them. And it's this one.
In general, the concert was great - we didn't really invite anyone from "the outside", so it was just the school community. I was one of the adults up front creating a barricade between the screaming girls and the boy band, which was...interesting. A new thing to add to my job description!
But it was so high energy, and everyone had a great time. I can't embed the video here, but you should totally go take a look - the screaming girls. Oh, the screaming girls. I was one of those girls for four years. And may I just say, one of the teachers brought a handful of ear plugs for the show, and I am SO SO SO grateful. It's not even funny. They were SO SO LOUD.
