So, this blog took a short hiatus whilst I was in London, and yesterday.
Mainly for the tour.
So, let’s start with the concerts themselves, because that was the main large thing!
BTS were amazing! I loved every second of it. I don’t remember a time where I’ve been at a concert and enjoyed myself so much. I cried, but I had so much fun. They were amazing! Everything I thought they were going to be and more, despite Jungkook’s injury.
So, I was super happy with the concert. I took a few videos, but I’m probably screaming in the background, and I don’t want to do that.
The second part.
On Monday before I went to sleep I posted that things had finally been settled with the O2, and we’d finally get the distribution plan.
On Tuesday, we met our lovely representative, we dropped the banners off (I can’t share all the details for privacy reasons!), and went and had a drink.
At 6pm, we saw a few people were tweeting us with pictures of their banners. So, we did a check and asked people to send us their banners.
Out of like 25 replies to that tweet, 4 people had their banners.
We texted our representative, and luckily she shorted it. I don’t know how she did it, but we watched as waves of them were passed out through the crowd.
Day 1, at the end of the day, was a success. The O2 were horrific about it, but we somehow pulled it off.
Day 2. We were reassured the project was going to go better than the previous night. We felt relatively safe in this knowledge. My sister and I queued for 3 hours for merch, only for most of it to sell out before we even got there, but we did manage to get some photocards and a towel (we needed something to remember the day by!).
At 3.30pm we see people walking the venue with the banners. We check and it seems the entertainment agency crew are handing them out for standing. We kind of relax. Things are looking good.
5pm, we tweet again. We think we’ll be early this time and try to catch it better.
We get into the venue, seated is all good. We relaxed even more. We wander a bit, pick up some drinks and snacks, and go find our seats.
Our banners are on their seats ready.
We look down to standing.
People entering the venue are no longer receiving banners.
We text the representative again. She tries to figure it out. The venue are refusing to give more out.
I angrily tweet the venue to do their job. We put out a tweet apologising, saying the venue are refusing to do more.
Somehow, miraculously, despite them saying there wasn’t enough, at least another hundred or more make an appearance.
Most people in the end get their banner.
One of the most stressful experiences of my life is now over.
I could cry.
The third thing to go wrong with the week in London. We went out for food on the Tuesday. I woke up Wednesday feeling a little rough. I put it down to alcohol, I’d had like 2 cocktails, a cider and a vodka and coke. Not really a lot to get me hungover, but I figure I don’t drink very often, so it’s probably that.
But it doesn’t clear up. It only gets worse as the day goes on.
Thursday I wake up, and my stomach is still playing havoc on me. I’ve got food poisoning.
I’m still not feeling great now, but am feeling slightly better.
Of all things that could have happened over the week. I was preparing to get my money together to refund people on Monday thinking we’d have a failed project and would need to give people their money back. I did not expect to get food poisoning.
So, that kind of sucked.
Other than that, things have been okay. I’m hoping to go back to normal tomorrow, and that includes regular posting on here and on the book club.
My life is now free(ish)!
This was a really long post, I didn’t expect it to go on for this long…
I hope everyone else has had a lovely week off from my complaining though! I’ve certainly had an experience. Last night I slept for nearly 12 hours to make up for all the lost hours sleep over the last few weeks. I’m still tired, but I’m going to make up for it…
