Update Catch-up #2: Teenage dream come true

Standard

This is an extremely late entry but what the heck. With everything happening right now I haven’t had the time to sit down and write about stuff that’s happened. Getting to the point, I watched the Jonas Brothers live with my bestfriend/sister Mia and her sister Maryose. We’d been waiting for that day for so long and when we first found out, we badly wanted tickets to the show. Mia and Maryose bought ahead cause they had enough savings. I on the other hand didn’t have enough savings to buy the ticket I wanted and was debating with myself whether to buy a different ticket or not. I had only been working for a month and didn’t have my salary yet. I felt helpless (head over heels in the moment.. I.. will stop now hehehe!) and desperate for a chance at seeing my favorite people perform live. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Mia helped me join a contest for it but since it was Facebook-based I was sure it would be difficult. Days before the concert, my salary came in! It wasn’t enough for the ticket I wanted but I was almost there! A flicker of hope! The following day, one of my cousins in law, Ate Yan, messaged me asking how she could help me get a ticket. I thought she was referring to the contest so I told her to just like my entry. Then, she asked if she could send me some additional money to add to what I had so that I could get myself a ticket for sure. I couldn’t believe it! I said okay, thanked her, got the money the next day, and was able to get myself a ticket! My first big splurge! I couldn’t resist. It was Nick Jonas in the flesh. I had to be there! And I was going to be! ๐Ÿ˜€ Me and the girls were ecstatic. ๐Ÿ˜€

On the day of the concert, I couldn’t contain myself and kept playing their songs and watching their videos while waiting for time to pass so I could go to Mia’s house. I rode with them to the concert. I felt like a giddy high-school girl and my teenage self was going crazy! ๐Ÿ˜› (This feeling wouldn’t pass for a long, looong time hehe) Mia said she felt the same so at least I was sure I wasn’t going crazy. HEHE. After a while, we got there, had a quick sort-of dinner of pizza slices, and made our way to the arena. Random party songs were playing and we were sooo hyper. Giddy fans around us though were even worse off and going wild. :))

Moooving on to the concert itself, the front act was a local band fronted by a female lead. We didn’t recognize them but they managed to rile up the people around us singing OPM song covers. Up next was Anna Maria Perez de Tagle. She was a Disney kid and is a Filipina so we liked her very much. She performed song covers both local and foreign, which surprised us because we didn’t know she knew OPM songs like ‘Torete.’ She also performed her own songs which were catchy and light. We liked them. ๐Ÿ˜€ She got the crowd riled up even more asking if we were ready for the Jonas Brothers before leaving the stage. A fan fainted once her set ended. Sad how she wasn’t able to catch the Jonas Brothers’ set. :/ After a break and some introductory beats the Jonas Brothers and their band finally took their spots onstage.ย โ™ฅ I swear in real life they looked like porcelain dolls. Haha! How they got their skin to be so smooth I’ll never know. Maybe it’s a Caucasian thing? :)) Nick looked gorgeousย โ™ฅ I loved him even more so after that. They sang their old songs, new ones, ones mashed up with other currently popular songs, and solo hits. Even their band members sang! It was a relaxed, fun vibe all around. ๐Ÿ˜€ One of our favorite parts was when they sang Lovebug and everyone in the crowd sang along! It was amazing. All of it. Unforgettable. I think that was an awesome first treat for myself. ๐Ÿ˜€ I’ll post the photos soon but for now, that’s another one off the bucket list. :>

 

Nick J still has myย โ™ฅ,

Happy music! :-)

Now I know that the topic of the song We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together by Taylor Swift isn’t a particularly positive one but the upbeat tune and the quirky video make me like it and I’ve played it on repeat thrice already. Haha! Cute song. ๐Ÿ˜€ It’s also been described as ‘diabolically catchy.’ Here’s some good, catchy, upbeat music for a particularly happy day! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Here’s the link to the official video:
