on the subject of undesired stress...

on November 14, 2006 - 8:49am

as much as i adore josh, i could really do without the stress and anxiety that goes hand-in-hand with the presale ordeal. when i first went through it this time two years ago it was rather exciting. but now it's just become a pain in the rectum. i still have a raging headache that i received last night whilst reading the boards - so much confusion, so much tension, so much anxiety. you could feel it through the computer. everyone's getting anxious already and the presale doesn't actually start until this time tomorrow.

it's not the process that i'm worried about. it's the way it's been explained. things are worded so vaguely that it's easy to understand why they are often misconstrued. i am thankful that the mods are usually swift to answer questions though in an attempt to quell some of our anxieties.

all in all, i cannot wait for tomorrow's madness to be over. i cannot wait to print out my confirmation and be done with it. i sincerely hope that i'll be able to get good seats this time. the last time i went through a presale i was so nauseous and frazzled that i couldn't pull myself together and ended up losing tickets in the 6th row. when i finally was able to go through the process again the closest tickets were on the 14th row. granted, they were far from shabby tickets. 14th row, just right of center. but. what i wouldn't give to be in the first five or ten rows. maybe i'll have better luck this time around. i'll have to go to bed at a decent hour tonight and make sure that everything's set up and ready to go before i go to bed. i've realized that preparation is key when it comes to presales. preparation and, if at all possible, calmness and collectedness [i think i just made that word up]. lol.

p.s. i was really miffed when i heard that radio stations were giving away tickets, but i got over it. it happens with every concert - not just josh's. so. i think i was just angry because when i found out i had already been on the boards for over an hour answering questions and trying not to get all panicky over again. needless to say, i registered to win tickets over the radio too. now i just need to remember to listen to the radio - weekdays 2-7. that's a long time to have to listen to the radio. :/

i'm sorta saddened because i wasn't able to type in my information quick enough and missed out on F2 row 6 tickets. however...i did manage to purchase F3 (floor section right of center) row 14 tickets. not too shabby. i tried to get F2 tickets after the drama...but the closest seats after i refreshed my screen were in row 18. lol! anyway, i'm thrilled. hopefully row 14 is still close enough to get good pictures of josh. *crosses her fingers* i'm so excited and it's not even december! LOL!

son of a nutcracker!

i could've sworn that pre-sales for the san antonio concert started this morning at 9 am PST. so i get everything ready and hit the "tour/tickets" link promptly at 11 am CST...and i just get the basic information. i start to panic and question whether i have norton anti-virus running on my pc. i go back to the "news" page and read through the pre-sale dates and times carefully. it seems the pre-sale for the san antonio concert won't be starting until 10 am PST. i could've slept another hour! lol! oh well...i guess i'll go eat brunch.

good luck to all of you that are puchasing tickets. ^_^

today's the big day! pre-sale day. i'm so excited....excited to get a ticket or two...not so exctied about the thousands of other people attempting to do the same thing at the same time. lol. oh well...i've got my seating chart tapes directly in front of me. i've memorized my credit card number. josh is filling up my apartment with his encouraging words. i'm ready! only 31 more minutes. ^_^

it's finally friday

on November 19, 2004 - 7:11pm

omg! it's been such a long week...part of me is thrilled that it's over...but part of me is dreading the weekend. why?? it's crunch time. i've been procrastinating long enough, and this weekend i fully intend to get lots of things done for school...all of my urban sociology projects [with the exception of my independent study project], my latin american music 500-word essay on la música jarocha, and my spanish cultural project summary. i also need to catch up on my reading assignments for social stats. wow...it's going to be a long 48 hours.

i dropped off my application for the bsm [baptist student ministry] leadership team this morning. i'm pretty nervous about the interview that i have to go through next tuesday for the position...but it's in God's hands now. i've done all i can do to convey my interest in joining the leadership team and making a difference.

i love this song. the first time i heard it i was watching the credits of the movie 'troy' scroll up the screen at the mayan plaza with my best friend jason. i was amazes. honestly, it gave me goosebumps...just like the first time that i heard "believe" this past weekend after seeing 'the polar express.' how does he do it time and time again?? how is he able to take a song and just...i dunno...OWN it?? i find myself in complete awe of his vocal ability at such a young age. i cannot wait until march...i wonder where the best seats at the sbc center are?!?! i'd love to be on the front row...but i don't have that kind of money. i'm thinking somewhere on the floor...relatively close...or on the first level up from the floor. i'll have to find a seating chart.
