I’ve been receiving this particular question very much recently. The question is, “You keep going to parties after parties, events after events. When are you gonna stop?”.
My reply to that question will always be, “I don’t know.” Why are people asking me this question? Do they know the reasons to why I’m going to this places. Maybe. Maybe not.
The reasons I’m going to parties/events are DJs usually spins in clubs or outdoor events like the beach for example. Yes, my favourite genre of music is EDM ( Electronic Dance Music ). As any other normal human being/fans of an artist, I will like to see the artist LIVE instead of watching it online via Youtube. & Zouk has been doing great at bringing in awesome DJs to Singapore every week. ( Thank you, Zouk! ). Which means I’ve to attended an event once/twice a week or at least 2-4 times per month. This is one of the best clubs where DJs will spin at.
For example, your favourite kind of genre is rock music like Paramore, Blink 182 or so. Imagine there’s a company which brings in these kind of bands into a country every week. Wouldn’t you want to attend and watch them LIVE in front of you? You will, right? It goes the same for me except that it’s in a club.
People will usually stereotype or relate clubs to those bad scenes from movies/drama series. What you watch, is mostly not true. You’ve to experience it in order to know feel it for yourself. When people get to know that i attend to parties/events at clubs, they’ll tend to disappear or keep a distance away from me. I don’t know why. Maybe they are thinking, “Oh! He goes clubbing. He is a bad person. He must be going around drinking, taking drugs, checking out people and etc” To be honest, I am there for the DJs and music. Anything else is a bonus.
Attending these parties/events, I will let out all of my anger, frustration, sadness, disappointment, hurt, translate all that energy into dancing it off on the dance floor. It makes me feel better. Dancing on the dance floor with friends who attend the parties/events with me makes me feel better and happy. It’s like a mini getaway from reality after a week of working/studying hard for some of us and i am one of the some. This is one of the things which I find happiness from. Loud music, deep bass, meeting new people, dance with friends, catching up with life. Unless you’ve any other activities, i am always open to suggestions and all.
