Thursday – December 17, 2015 was a day full of anxiety, frustration, excitement, nervousness, and second thoughts. It was an absolutely exhausting day but it was all worth it. Thursday was when Adele tickets went on sale for her North American Tour. The most coveted ticket of 2016 was about to go on sale and I wasn’t even sure if I could go and if I did decide to go, I was certain I could afford it (that wasn’t going to stop me though). The day didn’t start out great because the night before my best friend and I got into a fight and I was feeling fairly bummed about it. I had talked myself out of purchasing the tickets, so I’d say I was feeling fairly depressed that morning.
In enters the Queen of the World and Keeper of my Heart: Jesenya. My friend, my confidant, my co-worker, my sign from The Universe that good people exist! She took one look at my tear-stained, pathetically sad face and made the decision that we were going to the Adele concert. She put her credit card down, so there we were at 9:55am, ready for the tickets to go on sale. There was excitement in my fingertips and anxiety in every pore of my body but I WAS READY. I don’t know how it happened, I don’t know why it happened, and I am still pinching myself over it but I GOT TICKETS TO SEE ADELE.
I don’t think you understand! Yes, her voice is otherworldly. Yes, she is fucking gorgeous. Yes, she is relatable; in a “she could be my best friend”, kind of way. Yes, this will be THE event to be at in 2016. But it’s also so much more than that. You look at her and you see Adele, but I see a woman who has looked at the most damaged parts of me and has created the most beautiful songs out of my broken pieces. You see a woman on stage singing her heart out and I see a woman letting me know that everybody hurts and that it’s okay to cry.
So on this Music Monday we celebrate ADELE! Listen to 19, listen to 21, listen to 25 just listen to it all! I still cannot believe that in August of 2016 Adele, Jesenya and myself will be in the same place, at the same time, loving life and feeling feelings! I feel like this was a gift from The Universe, I KNOW I SOUND CRAZY. Just think about it though, on December 17, 2015 at 10am local time, TEN MILLION people tried to get tickets to one of the Adele Concerts and I somehow, magically got through. The Universe was like, “you need this, and you’re welcome”.
SO thank you! Thank you whichever stars had to align in order for this to happen. Thank you to Jesenya, who is a real genuine friend who did this out of the kindness of heart while being aware that she was gaining nothing from this gesture. She’s not even a big Adele fan, I KNOW; I’m working on it.
So on this cold Monday, put some Adele on, get in touch with your emotions and be grateful that we are lucky enough to experience Adele during our generation! So, in other semi-related, news: I’m trying this new thing where I manifest things into a reality. You say the thing, you believe the thing, and you make the thing happen.
I will meet Adele.
2016 is the year where Adele and I meet. Maybe we don’t become best friends, maybe she doesn’t realize how great it would be to have me in her life, maybe it’s a quick meet where I just get a blurry picture, and maybe we just lock eyes across a crowded room (like in a really sweet way, not in a creepy way). However it happens, Adele and I will meet and it will be fucking wonderful.
