Passed by the Big Dome earlier and heard a Maroon 5 song blaring on the speakers. I was reminded of their concert next month and the fact that tickets were sold out a few days after Ticketnet started selling.
I wrote something about not getting to watch the band for their first concert in Manila years ago. Snippets below (this was written March 4, 2008 to be precise):
It began with this:
This is so depressing. I badly want to watch and I don’t have a ticket because it’s so expensive. So many concerts, so little time (and budget). Lalo lang ako na-depress kanina e.
And ended with these strong statements:
The next time you drop by, I’m already the concert organizer and I won’t have any problems at all with the darned tickets. Fudge. IT WON’T BE SOON BEFORE LONG. DARN IT! KAINIS TALAGA. I’M GONNA CHASE THAT PEYTON SAWYER DREAM AND MEET ALL THE ARTISTS I WANT SOMEDAY HAHAHA.
And now I ask myself what happened to that dream? What happened last year? This is their third time in Manila! I was a student in 2008 and again a student in 2012. Patron VIP is still priced the same, it’s almost funny. Oh, #fangirlproblems.
P.S. Excuse the caps and the stream of consciousness.
