Hello everyone, I hope you all are having a marvelous day. Today’s post is a different one, it’s more of a storytime kind of post, and if I’m going to be completely honest, this was one of the best nights of my life and I wanted to share it with you all! It’s gonna be a bit of a long one, but I promise it’s definitely worth the read!As I shared with you earlier, I just lost my grandmother, and I was hurting, and I still am. But months ago, my friend bought Taylor Swift tickets and invited me to go with her, so I said sure why not. No it’s not my queen Ariana, but I love going to concerts, I was down for Taylor Swift. Anyway a couple weeks ago, we went shopping for outfits for the concert. My friend is a huge Taylor Swift fan, and she keeps up with Taylor as if she’s a Kardashian. She knows that her parents walk around at her concerts and scout people that are decked out in Taylor Swift clothing, and sometimes these people are able to meet Taylor after the concert. We had planned on dressing like one of the outfits in the “Look What You Made Me Do” music video, but we settled on wearing some cat tops with leggings.
And then the worst week of my life happened with everything with my grandmother, and to be honest after losing her, I didn’t feel like I could go, like I needed to mourn before I could go out and everything. But my mom said to me, “No, you have to go to the concert. You already paid for the ticket, and grandma would want you to go, she wouldn’t want you here crying at home, she would want you to go and have a good time.” So I complied and I went, I thought it would be good for me, something good to happen that week and something to distract me.So the day of the concert, we left my friend’s house a little later than planned and ended up getting to the concert fairly late. We had missed Charli XCX who had gone on first, and by the time we got to the outside of the stadium through security, Camila Cabello had just came out. So we went through security, went to the bathroom, and went to go look for hot dogs for me, because hot dogs are one of my all time favorite foods. But then I suggested we go up to our section and then look for a hot dog stand up there, because our seats were way up, the nosebleeds, and the lines were way too long, so it felt like the better choice, so then we were trying to figure out how to get up there, and we found ourselves at a map of the stadium.As we were trying to figure out where our seats were, a lady came up to us and asked where our seats were and where we were from. Then she complimented our outfits, hair, and makeup, and then asked who our favorite cat was. I was confused and I wasn’t sure if she was talking cat breeds or Taylor’s cats, so then I turned to my friend and she said Olivia. And then the lady asked if we wanted to have better seats.
At first my friend and I thought she was gonna ask for money to upgrade our seats but it turned out that she worked for TaylorNation and she gave us wristbands to the floor and to Club Olivia, which was a little cabana on the floor, about 20-30 feet away from the stage… For Free!! I started crying and hugged the stranger and told her how I’ve had a terrible week, and she told me that she hoped that this would have made it a little better, and boy did it!
So by the time we had gotten to Club Olivia, Camila Cabello was wrapping up her set, and we thought it was such a step up considering, we were supposed to be sitting in the highest section. And then we found out if we went up to the security near the stage and showed them our Club Olivia wristbands, that we were able to get Snake Pit wristbands! And that is where we spent all of Taylor Swift, she was literally 10 feet away from us, and I could see her makeup so perfectly, I kinda want to do a YouTube Tutorial on it, we’ll see. Also a little side note, I picked up a bunch of confetti that looked like newspaper as a souvenir, because this is one night and one concert I will never forget.
As for Taylor, she was fabulous, and she literally went all in, with all her dancing, and the fire and fireworks, and the big giant snakes, there was not a moment where I was not entertained, it was amazing. She played all of her Reputation album and some of her hits such as Blank Space, Shake it Off, We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together, Love Story, You Belong With Me, and Bad Blood.
It was honestly one of the best nights of my life, definitely what I needed after the difficult week I had just gone through. I am Catholic, but there are things I don’t always agree with, and I’m not sure what you all believe in but I really feel deep down in my heart that that night was a gift from my grandmother. Yes my friend and I were at the right place at the right time when we got scouted, but I truly believe that my grandmother was looking out for me and essentially made that happen.
Anyway that is it for this long story time, I really hope you enjoyed, I think I might make this a story time on my YouTube channel, but we’ll see. Thank you so much for reading!
