Yesterday, SAU hosted a concert for two bands I had never heard of before.
When I realized yesterday was the day of the annual concert in the Fall, I dreaded the night coming. My day was pretty full and at the end of the day I did not want to go to the concert and mingle. I’m not a good ‘mingler’–at least, I tell myself so.
Last night, I was proven wrong.
The concert was to begin at 8 pm. At 7:30 pm, I would head over to the plaza to meet up with one of my roommates. We’d head to a building and get ice-cream. (An event for pro-life was giving out free ice-cream and my roommate wanted to find out more about it.) We got there at 7:45 pm, my guess. Their ice-cream was all out.
We headed back to the plaza, she had been volunteering for the concert–doing admission (taking people’s money and giving wrist-bands). I was stuck on my own. She was going to be busy until 8:30 and I said I’d wait for her. I felt like I needed to hang out, even if by myself until then. We said goodbye and I turned to walk away. Ready to call my aunt in order to take up time. However, before I could, I saw someone I knew. I tapped her shoulder, she turned, we hugged and talked. Then I said goodbye.
The whole 30 minutes, I saw some people I knew, mingled and wondered around on my own. When my roommate, Julie, texted me that she was all done–I went to find her. I felt accomplished. I hadn’t minded listening to the concert on my own and I had seen many people, I had not expected. The night ended up being better than I ever thought it’d be.
I truly enjoyed it.
