This blog feels so neglected. I’ve been quite busy lately that I’ve had very little time (and maybe little motivation too) to update. But, today I woke up to the saddest news I’ve heard all month. I could not believe that the King of Pop Michael Jackson, one of my all time favorite artists, passed away only minutes before. =(
I only had a few hours sleep last night and I’m still all groggy, but I can’t seem to get myself to go back to bed. Michael Jackson was a big part of my younger days, and I really am quite affected by his passing. I was able to watch him in concert twice for free back in 1996 (Dangerous and History), and like I’ve said before, those two are the BEST concerts I’ve ever watched!
His Dangerous concert was also the first one I ever watched! Too bad I don’t have the concert pictures with me at the moment (will definitely look for them when I go home!), but I still have a pretty vivid memory of that experience. I remember I was in the crowd with my family and our neighbors. Me in my white shirt, denim overalls, maroon Doc Martens, geeky glasses, long hair and blue+white polka-dot scrunchy (I was such a geek! haha!). All throughout the night, I jumped up and down, sang and danced along with the crowd. It was one awesome night, and this morning I actually cried while I watched videos on youtube of the same concert.
This was the concert. <3
It wasn’t only the catchy tunes that drew me to his music, but it was mostly the words and meaning in them. His lyrics are truly magical! They’ve touched me, made me sing, made me dance, and made me cry at the same time.
“If you enter this world knowing you are loved and you leave this world knowing the same, then everything that happens in between can be dealt with.” – Michael Jackson.
Today I join the world in mourning and in lighting a candle for one extraordinary entertainer. Rest in Peace, MJ! You are definitely LOVED, and you are truly a LEGEND! <3
