Soloista @ 3D Concert

Johnoy, Ebe and Bullet
I don't know if I should blog about this, but my empty and uncreative mind is pushing me to talk about anything in this world. I think I should put a name on this segment of useless and selfish post. Any suggestions?

Anyway! It was mid last month when my crazy mind put me at Music Museum in the middle of a row sitting beside unknown people. I was sandwiched in between couples, and yeah, I'm alone.

I attended the 3D (Dumas, Danao, Dancel) Anniversary Concert and I was a fan so why not coconut? I arrived early at Greenhills due to cancelled appointments so I have about 4 hours to wander around before the start of the concert.

My first stop was at Stackers to eat. There are lots of La Sallian students and I was a bit shy for being alone. It was actually awkward because I was used to being alone. Students and couples, I was envious of them for being young and carefree plus they have half a day to spend with anything they want aside from school. I remember when I was in college, most of my idle time was spent with my boyfriend, my only best friend at that time. Ugh! Anyway, I ate quickly so that I could find a better place to waste my time.

I walked around the tiangge area and looked for a cellphone gel housing to replace my broken one. I claimed my concert tickets then after that I have nothing left to do. It is still 3 hours to go and I'm lost in a place that I know. I'm staying away from spending something that will just be used to waste my time, so I looked for benches.. But all of them were occupied. My legs and feet are now tired from hours of walking.. So when I saw the chapel, I entered to pay a visit.

The chapel is really relaxing, quiet and peaceful. There's no mass at that time. I stayed there for about 40 minutes until my hungry tummy called for help. Ilang oras palang ang lumipas gutom na ko ulit?!

I ate dinner at Starbucks then watched youtube videos and that alone is enough to make use of my remaining time. When I stepped out to go to the venue I was surprise to see the long queue of attendees. It was quickly moving so it's ok. As I sat on my assigned chair it was an awkward moment, but I'm not sad. Only my phone was my companion. Oh Phone!! Heaven sent. I looked at it and checked my Viber and look for someone to talk to. I found none.. So I just doodle on my QuickNotes and make a slight art out of boredom. If only I could chat with google like a normal person then I wouldn't do these stupid things! LOLs

Every time someone will be seated near me I feel like they are looking at me and wondering if I was with someone. Anyway, it's just a feeling, I don't have a proof they actually wondered, but at the back of my mind I thought they've open that topic and somehow ask that question to each other. I'm just crazy.

As the concert has started everyone was focused to the stage and so was I. I laughed, I cried, I was silent and talking shit, but I didn't care. I just savored the moment and didn't bother if I didn't have someone to share the laughter with. I was on my own. While everyone was talking about the concert, laughing and walking along the street, I was there behind them looking for my way out. I did the overtake and just walked passed them.

I'm not sad that I didn't ask my friends if they could go with me because I actually enjoyed it. It was a courageous act and a bucket list item slashed off the queue. I was happy that I did it, something that one wouldn't normally do. Now talk about solo agendas, I'm going to try watching a movie alone. That will be an easy one! :P Harhar

Until my next post,
