I have just officially bought my plane ticket to New York for the Kyary Pamyu Pamyu concert!
The decision to go to this concert had to do with a number of things.
First of all, I haven't been to New York in years and I sort of miss it from time to time.
I was born in Bronx, New York and was raised there until I was 9 years old.
Then, my family decided to move to Florida where I've been living at ever since.
All my of memories of New York are somewhat faded and
I do have a few memories I keep close to my heart.
Unfortunately at this point I don't remember street names or how to get anywhere.
I feel pretty bad about that but I guess it couldn't be helped.
Although, I did grow up there I have never been to Times Square.
Maybe I have? I honestly do not remember.
Its going to be a very refreshing experience going to New York.
Though, I'm not going alone of course but I'm going with my amazing friend, Steven.
We are extremely excited and we're both really huge Kyary fans.
Well, he's a bit more dedicated than me as he's the one who found out about
the concert and told me about it!
He also motivated me to go which adds on to the reasons as why I'm going.
We both have a strong love for ... basically anything Japanese. lol
We're pretty much more civilized versions of weaboos.
Which is all good for me because its hard enough as it is to find similar people!
Though, despite our common interests, he's such a sweet heart.
He's very patient, understanding, and on top of that hilarious.
I feel so happy he told me about this concert and on top of that basically
proposed the idea to go! I think If it were up to just me I would of been somewhat
pessimistic about the trip ... Probably wouldn't have decided to go.
Simply because I still have hints of my sheltered mentality
of when I used be underage and heavily controlled by my parents.
From time to time I'll forget my actual age.
On top of just going to the concert, we also have VIP tickets for it!
Meaning, we get to have a pre-show meet and greet with Kyary and early entry
to the overall concert. We've even bought matching outfits for the occasion.
Exactly what you see above except in black. ♡
The clothes have been shipped recently and we're just waiting for everything to come in.
Last, but not least, Kyary has been a great inspiration in my life ever since she started a music career.
This is her first world tour and I have no idea whether she'll come back ever again.
Most likely she'll have more concerts in the US but I'm not going to take my chances!
Especially when I know I have the time and resources to actually go its better now than ever.
Also, after this semester I'll be rewarded with my AA degree so its a good present to myself I believe.
Steven and I are both are counting down the days ...
I really won't believe it until moments before the concert.
Have you ever rewarded yourself simply because you felt like you deserved it?
