Ask anybody. It was so truly magical. You enter a floor-lit chamber-maze with flashing colors playing with your adrenalin. At the end of it, a wall of proclamation by the creators and innovators of the biggest and the best college event in the Metro. A sign of pride? More of a reminder that they’ve all taken the step to be better, and it’s your turn. Finally, you - almost lost in the beats of those crazy DJs - step out to the open area, filled with X number of mobile bars and photo booths, with 4,000+ moving hips and hands and, with so many significant beautiful souls. And in that moment you realize, you’re not so alone. Thousands of strangers were present on September 3, 2011, filling the World Trade Center with millions of different auras. Yet somehow our differences became irrelevant, for we united, had one thought throughout that remarkable night: We Live For This. Thankful: the sole feeling that overcame the ADHOC Team and the entire UP JMA family hours, days and weeks after. For the 4,000+ people turnout, for the insane and epic success of the Midnight Reveal, for all the UP JMA ADHOC records broken, for the peace and safety that was kept until the wee hours of the morning, for the smiles and hugs and bewitching energy that seemed to suspend every living being in a state of perfect existence. The greatest thank you, though, is for your acknowledgment of our cause. To find superb purpose in living. To impact you to make every day of your life a majestic heart-tugging adventure, the way ADHOC was. “UPJMA ADHOC: We Live For This” was an amazing Day 1, and the rest of your life should be lived beyond whatever greatness was felt, forgotten and achieved that night. For the moments that you don’t remember. For the feelings you can’t forget. For everything, and nothing less. Live. UP JMA ADHOC promises you one thing: we will never stop living for and giving you greatness. The biggest and the best will be back in Feb 2012.
