my addiction is in full force and it might be time to seek professional help. this week i bought tickets to five events. bought tickets to three events on the same day within about 2 hours of each other. even voluntarily went to two theaters in times square. (if you are new to my blog - i detest and loathe times square above almost all locales in nyc) what is happening? i have no self control. netter now affectionately refers to me as her "ticket broker".
don't believe me that i have an addiction? let me spell out what events i have tickets for and when they occur. the following is in chronological order.
monday, june 11th - ed sheeran @ bowery ballroom
friday, june 16th - keane @ beacon theater
wednesday, june 20th - peter and the starcatcher @ brooks atkinson theater
tuesday, july 31st - newsies @ nederlander theater (this is my birthday so is a total freebie from my addiction diagnosis)
saturday, september 8th - us open for men's semifinal action
friday, september 21st - ed sheeran @ terminal 5
saturday, october 26th - alfie boe @ berkeley center in BOSTON!
i also have my eye on some new york pops concert tickets and want to see a bunch of plays on broadway before they close like other desert cities.
this wouldn't be such a huge problem if i didn't also love to travel and have recently bought a plane ticket with my family to florida and am plotting my vacation to spain in november. the combo of tickets to shows/concert and tickets to travel is why i still eat kraft macaroni and cheese every sunday and had left over papa john's pizza for lunch EVERY day this week.
i have started the process of researching a good therapist to help me get to the root of this addiction. will gladly take recommendations. you can even provide them anonymously. i won't judge.
