This picture was taken on my iPhone 4 three years ago, and it’s times like these when I wish I had a good camera. Although, you don’t need a good camera in order to understand the Chaos this photo portrays.
I was two days from turning eighteen, sitting at home scrolling through my social media, bummed that I was too young to attend the Beyond Wonderland event. If only my birthday was a couple days sooner I could’ve been there I thought.
In the midst of my sulk fest, I get a call from my best friend.
“Hey what’re you doing?”
– “Sitting at home having a blast, what’s up?”
“Get dressed, I’m coming to pick you up in ten minutes. We’re going to beyond.”
-“But we don’t have tickets, or ID’s that say we’re eighteen..”
“I know.” *Hangs up*
We got to the venue, and saw two people exiting, we asked if they still had their tickets, they said yes and gave them to us. The lady scanning our tickets looked at us with hesitation but could see the hopefulness in our eyes.
“Just go.” she said
Best. Birthday. Ever.
