||One Direction (Where We Are Tour – Live from San Siro DVD) – Why Don’t We Go There, Rock Me, Don’t Forget Where You Belong, C’mon C’mon, Right Now, Through The Dark, Happily, Little Things, Moments, Strong, Alive
It’s been over six months since I last updated this site. I need to actually start using it because I’m paying for it. I can guarantee I won’t though.
I lack drive.
And other people’s interest in my life…
But, another year has come and gone. It’s 2015 now. Maybe I can try a new years resolution of blogging? It’s worth a shot… Who knows what will come out of it.
Down to the boring stuff then?
Nothing has really changed since the last time I blogged… My life is still the same. Can I even call my last post a blog? It was more of an update to the site, and to let people know that I was alive at that point.
Since my last post, I’ve started back in school again! Christmas break has been fun, but I would like at least one more full week before I go back, not just a few days.
This semester I have to take an elective, which ended up being Psychology. No one likes it. Even people who MAJOR in it. It was either that, anthropology or politics. I wish it would be a more general elective versus something that the school is forcing us to take. If it were more of an option for us to actually choose a legit elective, I feel a lot more people would be happier about it.
But who am I? I’m just a student in her second semester at College for the second time.
ANYWHO. Enough with the Debbie Downer situation!
I have to admit I’m becoming quite fond of a little band from the United Kingdom. If you couldn’t tell it was One Direction, then I’m obviously not doing a good enough job with my layout.
It’s a recent thing. I’m talking less than 2 months. But I regret not getting into them earlier. They’re actually really good. It all started when I was watching the AMAs, and they performed Night Changes.
Now, if you know me… Any time they came on whether it be the radio, tv, whatnot. I would instantly turn it off. I don’t have a legit reason for doing it, but for some reason the first thing that came to mind was to shut it off. I wish I hadn’t. I wish the people I was with at those times would have forced me to listen to it. I’m not pinpointing one person in specific. Because there were multiple times when their music was presented to me and I shut it down.
(See Shut It Down clip here.)
Now… I know what you’re probably thinking. How can you go from disliking them so much to liking them THIS much. And I honestly don’t have an answer for you. It just happened.
But my Christmas present to myself was a ticket to their show in Toronto in August. Yes. I am a Directioner now. A concert going, cd/dvd owning, merch buying Directioner. And am I ashamed?
Not one bit.
Am I watching the newest DVD as I type this post? Absolutely. Which is why it’s actually taking me so long to get through it. But you know what? At least I’m attempting to update and not leaving it for another six months.
Since I last blogged I also got a new job at Old Navy. I was temporarily working at the Movie theatre, but I wasn’t enjoying it. I felt pressured to be happy there. And I immediately knew I needed to find a replacement job. I had applied at Old Navy in January. Yes, six months prior I had applied before they called me. I had actually forgotten about applying for the job, to be honest. When I was contacted, I was quite shocked because I didn’t even remember applying. But I didn’t care that it was a while later. I cared that they actually ended up calling me.
I won’t lie. At first I was extremely intimidated. Everyone seemed to have such good relationships with each other, and I was terrified that they wouldn’t like me because I was that new person coming in. I hate being the new person. Most people probably do.
The only good thing is that I wasn’t the only person hired at that time. There were seven of us. PHEW! Someone who is on the same level as me!
Needless to say, I’m still working there and I absolutely love it. I wish I had applied there before, because it’s such a fun place to work. It’s a bonus that I don’t have to wear that blue polo shirt and khakis anymore! I can wear what I’m comfortable with wearing, and I couldn’t be happier with it.
I’ve also established that it’s been 85 days since I last saw DWW in concert… and it’s going to be another month until I get to see them again. By that day, it’ll be over 115 days since I’ve seen them. That’s the longest it’s been in over a year since I’ve seen them…
– We bought tickets Dec 2013 to 3 shows in February.
– We made an impromptu trip to Huntsville at the end of February to see them again.
– We then got tickets to see them 2 times in April.
– Then we got tickets to see Camm in June 3 times.
– We also bought tickets to see them 1 time in July.
– Then, starting the first week of August to the middle of September, we saw them 7 times.
– During those seven shows, we bought tickets to see them twice in October. The last time being October 10.
…if you kept track it was 16 times we saw them live last year.
So yes, I’m allowed to be upset for not seeing them in over 100 days, because they became a pretty big part of my life last year! (If you’re wondering about how much it cost… I only had to pay for 9 shows, so it’s not nearly as expensive as you’re probably thinking. The rough math added up to being around $250. My 1D ticket cost almost half of that, so seeing 16 shows for that price, was not bad at all.)
I’ve also become quite addicted to the After Series. I’ve finished the first three books, and now I’m just impatiently waiting for the fourth and final book to be released… at the end of February.
I know I’m now just rambling on, but I finally have a long blog post, which is definitely what I need to start doing on this.
Maybe I can use this as a New Years Resolution? *fingers crossed*
