Third week of #thanksformusic2017 This week theme is "My generation"!
I dedicated this mani to One Direction, that has been a huge part of my life.
I first heard (about) them when I was 14, the girl sitting next to me in class told me to listen to Forever Young and What Makes You Beutiful... She basically created a monster that day. From that moment on, for two/three years straight, I listened to the band songs constantly, in loop, always, any moment, anywhere... I used to geek and fangirl lake crazy – like when they released the LWWY video earlier or when they took part in the 2012 Olympic Games closing ceremony – , I bought their album fantasized a lot...
I then started distancing a bit, not following everything they did – I don't even have the last two albums – and it didn't come as shock when Zayn decided to leave the band or when they announced they were going on a sabbatic.
Even if I am not as dedicated as I was when I was younger, I can't deny what important part of my life One Direction has been and I regret nothing of those years.
Looking back, the memories are bittersweet, I was just a (innocent) teenage girl and it only took me one of their songs to cheer me up and/or make me feel safe.
I guess and hope everyone has something like this, no matter what they like. At the end of the day this is what music does, it touches something deep inside you, it makes you feel good...
Anyway, a part from this last bit of #streamofconsciousness, thank you so much @icantmynailsarewet for the opportunity!
Hope you like it and see you next week!
