In a few hours, I will be seeing Perfume. Live. In concert.
Even the 11-year old me who discovered Perfume would have never believed that seven years later I would be seeing Perfume in concert. It feels unreal! I'm almost convinced this is one long, elaborate dream, but no, I am really seeing Perfume in concert. So much has changed in my life since I booked the tickets, especially after I started college. But it's November 15th, and right now, people are waiting outside Hammerstein Ballroom for Perfume. The girls are probably getting ready right now. I'm just a few minutes away from going into New York City. This is really happening! I can't believe after years of listening to Perfume and writing about them I finally get to see them in concert! Honestly, I don't have too many expectations for the concert; I just want to have a good time and jam to all the songs I know. And I also want to pick up some merch, but that's more of a personal thing. I'm even feeling pretty chill about whatever's on the setlist; just seeing the girls perform live right in front of my eyes has got me both excited and jittery. What will they do with the audience? How will the concert be set up? I've got so many things I'm curious to see, and I can't emphasize enough how excited I am!
I will definitely write about the experience; I'm just not sure when. As you may have noticed, activity on the Wonderland's trickled down a bit. I haven't had much free time on my hands since October, and I don't have much spare time in these next few weeks. Right now I've got an essay I need to work on, and a lot of stuff for finals is just around the corner. So would anyone be cool if I did a vlog? Like an initial impressions vlog, just something I can whip up really fast while writing a more detailed post later on when I'm not as busy. It would probably be just a short video, and I swear I'll come up with something much more detailed when I have the time! For now though, I'm just excited to get to the concert! I wish everyone else who's going the best of times! This concert going to be crazy and surreal and weird and crowded, but honestly, I am looking forward to every second of it.
I don't know if I have any readers who are going to the concert, but I'll be wearing a fuzzy blue sweater and a gray hat! And if someone says hi and I don't say hi back, I'm really sorry. I think I'm going to be so dazed I'll end up oblivious to everyone around me! Off I go!
