Taking a break from Anchor WebCamp –Don’t worry, I’ll get back there on Monday.– After it was over, my husband and I headed straight for the Kylie Minogue Concert. It was Fantastic. It was held at the Bill Graham Theater and I hate floor seats. This means something completely different for this theater than the Pavillion which is my venue of choice. It was just the floor. No chairs. I was packed into a crowd. I was freaking out.
Considering the extremely small number of people who will read this, I can say 100% of my audience knows what this will imply. Still, I have some significant social anxieties. And Claustrophobia. And personal space -slash- touching things… And germophobia. And … well, you get the idea.
For people who are scared of heights, they can stand on a ladder or go in a plane to try and deal with their anxieties. This was like that for me. I survived the entire concert surrounded by sweaty people and pot. I had fun! And considering I have been having rolling anxiety attacks all week, this was the first day I didn’t wake up at four in the morning or sleep through the night by punching my husband while I was unconscious. He calls me ThrashyPaws, a play on Mass Effect’s Thrasher Maw.
I can honestly say I would never do that again. I don’t enjoy standing for 3 hours squished into sweaty horny people. But the fact that I did it, suffered some massive sensory overload, and still had fun? I’m making progress!
