The Best Day of My Life

0 days, I thought as I slithered out of bed. I had been counting down for this day for months. It was finally here.
The early hours of the day went slowly, but soon evening came and I piled into a car with my best friend.
We were excited. We were caught in traffic but we squeaked in the back seat about the fact he was only a block away from us at that very moment. That's right, we were about to see him:
Bruno Mars.
(AKA Our celebrity crush/true love)
When we were finally dropped off at the building, we found the longest line I've ever seen. It wrapped away from the building, around the grounds, and around the parking lot. This was the view from our spot in line. The building looked so far away.
We talked and admired our beautiful tickets.

It took about an hour to get in the building and take our seats. The concert was supposed to start at 6:00, but the music started around 7:00 and it wasn't even Bruno Mars. It was a guy named Mayer Hawthorne who was the opening act before the concert started.

When the concert actually began, it was some chick with her hair pulled into a puff ball on top of her head.
Janell Monae was her name. Her background singers and dancers had on the silliest costumes and the whole thing was super weird. I guess she had talent, but she over-sang every freakin' note and it really got old. Every song ended with like five minutes of "OooOOOHHhHHHhhHHhhhhhhHHHHHHhhhhHHhHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!" or  "AhhhhHHhhHHHhhhHHHhHhHhhhhhhhHHhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!" or "EEeeeeEEeeEEEeeEEEEEeeEEEeeeEEEEeEeEEEEE!!!!!!!" and after the band played the last note, she would go, "Again!" like 6 times.
"If they play that last note one more time I'm gonna rip my hair out," Ally and I said to each other.
Janell Monae's part ended after what seemed like forever, and it took a while for them to reset the stage. But when Bruno Mars was starting, everyone knew it because we all started screaming our lungs out.

He was AMAZING!!! Bruno Mars is just... amazing. He writes the best songs and he sings wonderfully and he's super good looking and he's just so cute! Ahhhh! Usually singers aren't very good live but I swear he was even better! His stage presence was fantastic and he was always keeping the audience involved (singing and/or screaming). He really is meant to perform. His songs always make me feel better. We waited 3 hours from the time we got there until Bruno Mars was actually singing to us, but it was totally worth it. It. Was. Phenomenal. A bunch of my pictures were deleted my accident... but the lighting was super cool and changed for every song.

I know I will always remember May 30, 2011. I love Bruno Mars so much.
