You knoe that feeling you get when you just know?
That’s the feeling I have right now. I’m sat at the venue where Lux Lisbon is playing tonight, I’ve been told what I have to do and where I have to be during the concert and everything so now I’m just waiting for the concert to start.
Though out my life I’ve never had this one thing that I wanted to do, this one thing that I wanted to be when I grew up. It’s been constantly changing from teacher, to gardener, to nurse, to popstar, to whatever, you name it, I wanted to be it.
Since last year when I went to my first One Direction concert I’ve really wanted to get in to the events and music business world, but it’s just been like this feeling. Now I know.
I’m sat here on the floor, hours before the concert really starts, I’m seeing all of the “behind the scenes” things, I’ve actually been backstage and I currently have my things in the dressing room and I just know, this is what I want to do the rest of my life.
I want the rush before a concert, I want my ears to ring and my head hurt, I want to run around with the artists, the sound, lights and film people, I want to be part of it all. I want to be there when the sound people ask if there’s anything they can do and the artist say “maybe a bit higher with the backing track”, I want to be in the rush of people cleaning up and putting away the equipment before the floods of fans come through the doors.
I don’t know how to explain it, it’s a very strange feeling but I just know.
