I can’t explain…

2nd February 2013

…my excitement right now.

Yesterday I purchased tickets to see one of the greatest bands in the world, The Who!

I’m so happy I could cry. I found out on Monday morning that they were doing a European tour and performing in Liverpool. I instantly contacted my parents and Tyrone and of course they all wanted tickets.

This morning at 9am I sat on Ticketmaster and tried to get tickets. Nothing came up. You see I wanted 4 tickets and apparently there weren’t 4 seats together. Even when I tried for 2 tickets, Tickermaster was giving me nothing. I ended up heading to the website for the arena and I managed to purchase 4 tickets from there.

Yes, they were expensive. Do I care? Not really. It’s The Who for goodness sake! How many opportunities in life do you get to see The Who?! πŸ˜€

I called my mum to tell her the good news. We will be sitting in similar seats to the ones we had for Madness. I would have liked to have been closer but it’s the fact that I’m going to be there that matters. Roll on June! πŸ˜›

I had a pretty hectic day yesterday following a not so interesting few weeks (apart from Tyrone coming to visit and going home for the weekend – those days were good). I had a lecture at 9am. You are probably thinking “Weren’t you on Ticketmaster then?”. Yes, I was late for my lecture. Well to be honest I wasn’t. After running down the road I got there for about 9.20am and the lecture hadn’t started yet. Following that I had a computer practical and it was mostly based around Excel. I love spreadsheets! That used to be sarcasm until I started using GIS software!

After my computer practical I went back to the flat, met up with my flat mate and we went swimming. I haven’t been swimming in a long time, but when I was home last weekend my mum decided to research swimming pools near to where I live. The majority of them were miles away from where I live. I wanted somewhere not too far away and in the city centre if possible. I don’t live venturing into areas I don’t know. Especially in Liverpool. It got a good reputation when it comes to crime. My mum found that there was a pool in one of the hotels in the city centre that is open for non-residents. It was Β£4 for a session (for students) which includes use of the pool, the gym and all the other facilities. Personally I thought it was a bargain considering the pool back home is over Β£5 just for a swim. It wasn’t too busy at all, and the pool was lovely and warm. I can’t wait to go again. If I get into a regular routine it will be great exercise for my hip. πŸ™‚

    That’s awesome that you got tickets to see The Who! I hope it’s a good show!

    I haven’t had a pool membership in a long time, and I kind of miss doing laps. I think it’s one of the more enjoyable ways to exercise. I really only swim now when I take trips to the beach. That’s great that you found a pool that you could go to!

    Congrats on getting the tickets to The Who.

    I totally love swimming… but I haven’t been in a pool since about 5 years now… I really wanna start exercising now… I’ve become so fat, really hate myself.. I do some Yoga when I get a chance but that’s not everyday and mostly it’s only Surya Namaskar (Sun Salutations)!

    This sounds like it will be so much fun!! YAY FOR THE WHO!! πŸ˜€ It’s exciting ordering the tickets to any concert..always a fun process πŸ˜›

  4. Congrats on those tickets. I love concerts and while I don’t exactly know who The Who is (I know, just shoot me ^_^) I am excited for the Rock and Worship Roadshow that is coming to my town. If we get there early enough we will be on the floor. πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

    That sounds like a superb deal. The swimming pool and the gym under one price. I always prefer the gym to the pool because my dry skin and chlorine don’t mix. I should sniff out some deals in my neighborhood.
