HOLD ON TO THE FEELING AND DON'T LET IT GO ♫

Today has been a brilliant day for many reasons. I may have landed my dream job (but I don't want to say this for sure until it's a done deal). I hung out alone and didn't feel lonely, and last but certainly not least, I saw One Direction live. Holy. Fucking. Shit.


First things first, though. The List is something that I have been working on for a while. It's basically a list of things I'm afraid of doing or that I need to face. Today I crossed another item off my list: attend a concert alone. I could say that I'm a brave little girl who wanted to face fears and blog about the experience, but the truth is that I really really really wanted to see One Direction. And I found a lovely-priced ticket for pickup in my suburb. Seemed like fate, y'know?

This isn't my first concert, but it's the first one I've been to alone. And can I just say that it was a great experience. I'm sure live music is lovely when shared with friends, but being alone, I don't think I missed out on anything. Except maybe having someone to take a photo of me beside a Harry poster. But whatever. I chatted with an elderly gentleman beside me (the poor thing had ear plugs!) for a while but then once the lights went out, it was all screaming and singing and enjoying the atmosphere. I honestly think more people should be brave enough to go to concerts alone. I certainly will be doing it more in the future!




The boys were great. Honestly, they're great entertainers. Especially Niall and Harry, I found. Liam seemed to take the singing part really seriously and Zayn had an amazing voice. Damn, that boy. Louis, oh Louis, was just fabulous all round. I love all the boys, I really do, but my screams were the loudest when Harry or Louis waved in my direction. No shame at all. My throat is sore. :D

One girl in my row stood for the entire concert recording on her phone. Don't be that guy, okay? Don't be the one watching the concert through your phone. Yeah, I know, you want to relive the experience but the footage will suck and you'll regret not paying attention to the concert as it happened!



At one point, during one of their silly little chats, Niall started reading out the signs that people had brought. There were some lovely ones, until Niall said "I'm the- oh, that one's naughty!" I saw the sign later. It read: "I'm the 1, give me the D!" Classic, ladies. Wish I'd taken a photo.


One Direction are such dorks. It's lovely. Their silly dancing and that rowing thing that they do with their microphones. Can't dance for shit, so they skip across the stage. GAH, I love them. I happened to have a damn good seat for the concert (YESSSSS) and so when the boys were on the middle stage, they were about 25 metres away from me. It was incredible. But still not close enough.



Overall, a fabulous day. I spent the money I earned at work yesterday on merch that I may or may not regret buying. And once I got home, I took a million and one selfies in my new 1D shirt. Y'know, as you do...


Sorry about the quality of the photos. My phone doesn't have the best camera. And photos can't do the experience justice, anyway. You really do have to be there.


Have you seen 1D? Love them or hate them? Or what was your best/worst concert experience? GOD I AM SO HYPER SOMEBODY COME DANCE WITH ME
