The driving force behind my trip to Seattle back in March was the Taking Punk to the Masses exhibit at the EMP Museum. As soon as I read the news years ago that there was going to be an exhibition dedicated to Nirvana on display, I knew I had to see it. Nirvana is a band that I grew up listening to, so they hold a special place in my heart. Their music certainly helped me to feel like less of some sort of outcast during early adolescence and just embrace who I am and still does so to this day. 
I couldn't believe just how much stuff was there! I had seen some of these objects before in books, online, and in Kurt's Journals but to see it in person was mind blowing. By the time I got to the end I was moved to tears. Being able to see and experience so much tangible memorabilia was such an emotional experience for me. I felt that this was as close as I could have physically gotten to the band, which was a bit overwhelming. This was certainly one of those moving events that I'll forever cherish. That day, I left the museum feeling awe-struck and a ridiculous sense of joy. Needless to say, it was well worth the trip!
