The 7 Stages of Watching a One Direction Concert

We still can't believe #OTRATMNL is over.

This weekend was a huge one for Filipino Directioners. Finally, Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, and Niall Horan of One Direction stopped by Manila for a two-night concert as part of the On the Road Again Tour. Fans flocked to the SM Mall of Asia Open Grounds to catch the boys perform a few of their chart-topping hits for their Filipino fans who have waited several years to finally see them in the country. We can imagine just how excited you were when you got into the venue, Candyrectioners. It wasn't an easy journey, but it was worth everything you've been through—hours lining up to get tickets last year, queueing at the venue to get great seats, and finally screaming your lungs out when you caught your first glimpse of 1D. We ~totally~ get you. Here's a short list of the feelings we know you also felt while being in the boys' presence for two nights.

You're already inside the venue, sitting down, and waiting for the boys to come out. Only a few minutes more before the guys come out, but it feels like forever. You keep doing weird movements and sounds just to calm yourself down.

When the boys finally came out, you were screaming at the top of your lungs! You've been waiting to see them in the flesh for so long and by the time they're finally in front of you, you just couldn't believe it. This is not a drill. It's totally REAL.

 3  Restlessness

No One Direction concert will be complete without pelvic thrusts. Are we right or are we right?

The boys kept saying it was the hottest gig ever. And you totally agree even on a non-weather-related level. For a moment, you didn't know where you were because ~feelings~. But whenever the boys splashed water around onstage, you know in your heart that you're finally home. *heart eyes emoji*

Then, there was that screaming realization that this was not a One Direction concert. It was a super fun time with the boys, but it's just not the same without Zayn Malik who signed off the tour due to stress.

A Simple Learner Who's a Great Pretender

Maybe I'm just a learner, not a weirdo. A learner that knows how to listen and pretend. A simple learner who's a great pretender. Pretending to be slightly dumb enough not to be judged and criticized by those who do not appreciate my existence. We surround ourselves with people who's levels are either beyond or below our intellectual behavior, because as for reality, people may use you either for their success or your downfall. Since then, people tend to judge someone who has an intellect with things they shouldn't be. Making them a criticizer, and most of all, calling them weird.

Honestly, I'm one of this "weirdo" who actually loves to learn things, and for the record, I'm bullied and stressed out for making myself not to learn more and go with the flow to dumbness I had. Have you ever feel being assigned to some task where you know every process to make it easier and faster to finish but turns out to hesitate to voice out because some of your mates put themselves in charge. There are times where I know what to do, what to say, or how to react, but kept myself silent and pretend not to know anything that may help us. Maybe it's a good thing to just go with their ideas and learn from their perspectives, but sometimes you can't control it and says something, and once again called to be a weirdo and let you finish the work by yourself.

It's annoying that you only know one process yet they gave you the whole work and let you finish it by yourself because they insist that "MAGALING KA DIBA?". It's not your fault being an intellectual person, knowing such things that may help you to pursue your dreams, and have the basic knowledge about something. You don't need to know everything, just the basics. And as for those people who do not appreciate your existence, let them be and continue what's the best for you. In some cases, you'll be annoyed by this but most of the time you'll be thankful for it. Not for now but maybe later. Just be yourself either a weirdo, a great pretender, or a simple learner, and always remember to lower your voice and behavior because no one loves that.

Just be a great pretender not to hear any runts and be a good learner that appreciates everything. It's out of nowhere thoughts of mine, but simply I leave you this my favorite life quotation; "Don't introduce yourself, Let your success introduce you"
