Last night was unbelievable! I finally met Bastille! I was incredibly nervous because I thought I looked like a wreck, but they were so kind! I’ve struggled with anxiety and depression for quite some time now. My mom always told me that I should get the word “Breathe” tattooed on the inside of my wrist, almost as a reminder I suppose, for when I get into an episode. This brings me to Bastille. They mean the world to me. Their songs are ones that I can connect to on a very personal level; especially “Laura Palmer” and “The Draw.” I can feel my racing heart, and it makes me remember that I am alive. The Draw is so deep and meaningful that I can’t even put it into words. I would cry and cry because I never thought in a million years I would live to see them perform. Their music kept me going though. I would think, “Oh, their new single comes out next week. I can’t miss that.” Eventually, my best friend, bastilleislyfe, took me to their concert! Now it turned into, “Oh, their concert is next week. I can’t miss that!” Because of that, I’ve been getting better. I still have those bad days, but I also still have Bastille’s songs. What better way to remember that than to have the man who wrote those important songs write “Breathe” onto my wrist?

He asked me why I wanted him to write it, but I was so nervous that I didn’t get to tell him! I simply stuttered out, “I have bad anxiety,” and he wrote it without another question. He was so incredibly kind! I wanted to tell him how much his songs meant to me, and how he helped me keep going, but I just couldn’t get the words out. Maybe if I see him again I’ll be more confident.

I’m only 17, so I can’t legally get it done yet, but I’m going to take plenty of pictures so that one day I can get it tattooed in his handwriting!

My friend snapchatted me this picture jokingly telling me to tell Dan Smith she said hi. Of course I screenshotted it and showed it to him. He cracked up laughing and insisted we snapchat her back making the same faces.

this saved my life

It’s so frustrating trying to convey to people how much Bastille means to me because no matter what sort of words I use it’s NOT ENOUGH to convey the magnitude of how much I love them
