So March has been and gone so suddenly we are into April!
This is only going to be a short post because I wrote about the main thing that happened in March in a separate blog post: “Getting A Second Chance With University“. That’s my main news…dropped out of one university doing one subject but I am starting a new course at a different university in September!
I am incredibly pleased about this obviously but means I am currently in a weird state of not knowing what to do. I’ve requested more shifts at work and in fact this month I will be working two jobs so I won’t be dossing about but there were a few moments in March where I had a moment(s) of panic.
It is fair to say that I am a sufferer of panic attacks. Not all of the time but through periods of high stress or uncertainty I seem to be prone to them.
Last month, I had two bad panic attacks. One was before I got my offer for my new course as I was worried about what I would do if I wouldn’t get in but the second…I am really not sure. I think there were many different things that factored into it and my body just crashed. Said no thank you.
I had to get a little selfish – not something that comes naturally to me.
It occurred to me that I was spending so much of my time worrying about a few other people’s well-being when actually I myself was struggling. So I’ve taken some time to reset, focusing on myself to get me in a better place.
I now feel ready to turn my attention back on others. I feel fresh and okay.
Now the other sort of panic is the Panic! At The Disco type. I had the pleasure of seeing them live at the Arena Birmingham towards the end of the month. They were incredible.
I very rarely go to arena shows as a whole. I actually prefer attending gigs at small venues because of the atmosphere and the ease of the night. Oh and it’s cheaper! But, I didn’t want to miss the chance to see this awesome band in the flesh. Tickets sold out within the first hour of being on sale and I remember the heartbreaking moment when I thought I had missed out.
But I hadn’t and I got to the front (perks of working at the arena I suppose).
I was blown away by the talent Brendon Urie has. I knew he was talented and that he – on his own – is basically P!atD but to pull a performance like that out of the bag night on night is simply incredible. He sung (obviously) with an incredible vocal range and played a plethora of instruments: piano, guitar and drums. I did film a couple of bits and put them on YouTube if you want to check them out!
It was definitely the highlight of March. Oh and spending International Happiness Day with some people who mean a hell of a lot to me.
So that was March! I’ve got a handful of awesome shows to review in April which I am very much looking forward to. Thank you for all the support you’ve shown this blog recently, I have truly been blown away.
Take care x
