Front row, baby! Okay, I’m sorta behind the pit because I don’t do general admission pits. But DUDE. How awesome is that? I got to pick my own seat. I am on the end of the row. CENTER FUCKING STAGE. YES!!!! The best seat in the house. This is about an Ellie Goulding concert, btw. Yes, the freaking Queen of dance/pop/edm/whatever.
Woohoo! Dreams do come true. 🙂 🙂 I think this is more exciting than Britney Spears. I’m not even a huge Brit fan. The only reason Britney was cool because it was in Vegas. Ellie Goulding concerts are like parties and I could use a little of that since I never party. The only bad thing about an Ellie concert is since it is like a party there is a HUGE pit so my “front row” seat is further back than I would like. However, I would rather have a seat any day than be in the pit.
Now I’m thinking: What if she cancels? Because of course that would happen. What if the shows sell poorly? Well, at least I would get my money back but I’m hoping this North American leg of her tour goes well. People in the States like a few of her songs but they don’t know how good she is live. If they knew, her shows would sell out quickly like they do overseas.
Her new album just came out today. It’s good, but I think she is trying too hard to get the American audience. The music and lyrics are very simplistic compared to her previous efforts. I don’t know. It’s hard to judge an album that just came out.
One last thing…I just checked my email.
you’re going to Ellie Goulding!
Yes, I am! 🙂
My tripod is at my mom’s house. I’m picking it up tomorrow. I will be attempting to record my first video (being in front of the camera) for YouTube this weekend with my clothes from Le Tote. So nervous but excited too. I think the worst thing will be editing the videos. I have never tried to edit a video before so this will be very interesting and possibly time-consuming. I don’t have the software. Ugh, I hope this doesn’t take all weekend. I have other stuff to do too, but I want to add more content to my YT channel so….
Other random stuff: My dog drove me bonkers today. He knows when mom has something important to do. At 10:01 he wanted to go outside. The tickets went on sale at 10. AHHH! I was yelling at him like crazy. My god. Today was nuts.
This week I…
Music of the week: Ellie Goulding, Alanis Morissette, Selena Gomez, Marina & the Diamonds, Carrie Underwood, Janet Jackson, Demi Lovato, Borns
Song of the week: Ellie Goulding – Army (New song)
TV of the week: Lost (season 5), basketball, the usual political stuff
NaNoWriMo update: 519 words. wah. 😦
Books of the week: I finished Redefining Realness: My Path to Womanhood, Identity, Love & So Much More by Janet Mock. bell hooks called this book “courageous” and I agree, but it also occurred to me that it must have been somewhat necessary. What semi-famous person can live with a secret like that? (She’s transgender). You have to tell if you are going to be on TV or you will be outed…unfortunately. But I still love the book. I learned a lot and I could also relate.
Edited to add: Oh, bell hooks probably meant her whole journey was courageous. DUH! Well, that I definitely agree with. I also liked how Janet acknowledged her looks really helped her. Many people don’t think about that much less acknowledge it! Being pretty always helps.
I’m still reading Manifest Your Destiny: The Nine Spiritual Principles for Getting Everything You Want by Wayne W. Dyer (on page 117). I started The Center Cannot Hold: My Journey Through Madness by Elyn Saks this week. So good.
I’m not working this weekend. In fact, I’m off on Monday. 3-day vacay! Hope to get some writing and reading done but I have a feeling I will be recording and editing my YT video for hours since I have no idea what I’m doing.
