…and mostly because I just want everyone to be happy *sob*
I am part of a community choir, and our big concert is coming up this Friday. To add to the normal about of stage-fright induced anxiety, I am part of a descant so I need to make sure that my part is on point before I sing in front of hundreds of people. Luckily, we have practice tomorrow, Thursday and Friday.
Except… I was invited to the Cavs game tomorrow. The playoffs. OF A CLEVELAND SPORTS TEAM. WITH LEBRON JAMES PLAYING. It should be noted that until about 9 months ago, I could not give 2 shits about any type of sports. I mean, I’ve always rooted for all Cleveland sports teams but couldn’t care enough to learn anything about it, ya know? Then I realized that my love for all things drama and hype matches perfectly with the sports world. (I mean… Manziel. Come on.) So I’ve been a bit obsessed ever since. We just watched 30 for 30: Believeland yesterday and I about died. So this couldn’t have come at a better time.
But… my concert. And also, Adam is another huge Cleveland sports fan and I felt really bad going without him. ALSO IT’S SO EXPENSIVE. So do I go? Do I go without Adam? Would he be upset? Can we afford it? Should I be committed to my choral duties? Does it really matter? Does anything really matter?
In the end, we just bought our own (absurdly expensive) tickets the row behind them. I will email our choir director to say I have an important family event coming up that I can’t miss, but I will religiously practice my part on Wednesday before our dress rehearsal. So it seems to have all worked out – particularly now that my 4 hour decision-making-induced headache went away.
IN CONCLUSION: !!!
