After seeing Spring Breakers, it’s hard not to wonder what ACTUALLY happens on spring break. So we caught up with Emii to see what her experience was like! Thankfully, no one got THAT hurt…

One spring break a few years ago, I had the opportunity to go on vacation with my family to Wales. An ACTUAL vacation. See, this was a big deal back then because we never went on vacations… like, ever. We just never had the finances to make it happen. However, at the same time the vacation was scheduled, my band had the opportunity to open for the Jonas Brothers… but in order do the show I would have to pass on the fun out-of-country event with my family. So I skipped the vacation (of course) and went with my band to perform. It really was a GREAT show!  Except for the part where an audience member hurled a beach ball onto the stage and I kicked it back out into the audience mid-song… only for it to hit a girl in the front row square in the face. Somehow I kept singing and kept giving her the “Holy crap I am so sorry” face. After the show, she still came up for an autograph and she managed to enjoy the show despite the unexpected beach ball assault. I gave her some free stuff and still feel kinda bad about it. That’s definitely one Spring Break I’ll never forget.
