Writing101: An even that was cancelled for real

I was really looking forward for this event. I’ve never been to a real concert so I decided to go. This was a band that had been a teen favorite in the 80’s. They had a lot of great hit songs. Like a lot bands out there, they had their share of problems. Band members left and were replaced with others. From 5 members to 4 and then to 3. They had released albums in 3 decades. One was more popular than others. Despite all the problems, the band didn’t stop of being. In 2000’s they were 4 members again and a new album was out. I liked them for years but became even a bigger fan in this century. When they announced they would come on tour to my country, I was so excited.

I bought a ticket and started to plan in my head how to get there, what to wear and so on. But then something happened. It was like an evil force had decided it wasn’t the time. The doctor to the band’s singer had forbidden for him to sing. He had to rest his voice or he could lose it altogether. The whole tour was in jeopardy. So all I could do was wait.

Then the day came, the concert date was postponed. The ticket master said “hold on to your ticket” and so I did. I should had seen it coming. I could have asked my money back. It was 52 euros after all. It’s easy to say it now. The whole tour was cancelled altogether.

What if that evil force would take that dream away for good. To see Duran Duran live in concert. Since I saw the video to “The Reflex” I wanted to see them. Maybe their next tour won’t reach my country. Too expensive to go abroad. Maybe my courage will fail me and I won’t dare to take that step. A step that seems difficult to me, be in big crowds. The day I decided to buy the ticket. It was a day I had decided I would get to that concert no matter what. I had never been that determined in my life. Maybe that chance will never come again. That evil force might cancel every concert and event on this planet forever. No more fun ever a again. That wouldn’t be very nice, would it?

Blogging 201 (last day): Make the Most of Events

That, that’s all folks.

Good things come to an end. If you can call it good. It might have been fun for some but for me it didn’t give anything new. But I did get more followers so at least something useful came out of this.

So the last one is about Events. For an introvert it’s like kryptonite is to Superman or The Joker is to Batman. I’ve never been into events. I haven’t even been to a real concert. Just the thought of a place full of strangers, gives me the creeps. I could never go to any event even if it’s close by. The point with the internet is, not having to meet people in real life. I have never even considered meeting people who I follow on FB or any social media. I rather just meet people online. It takes a lot before I can take a step like that.

So blogging events of any kind is a big NO. I’m not that desperate to promote my blog.

So I guess it’s downhill from now on.
