So what is it so special with these lads that got me hooked? It started when I went out with a few close friends. I am the type that listens but rarely talks, so they prolly tried to get me into talking that they sneered at me with something about 1D which I can vaguely remember. When I got home, I was actually worked up by the teasing. Then, it hit me; they are a boyband. I love boybands! And there are not a lot of boybands in this era. Plus, I know a lot of their hit songs; catchy tunes I might add. So I took a listen to their 2nd album, Take Me Home, which is my favourite one so far. There is nothing on that album that will make me hit that skip button. The second day I had their album in my playlist, my sister heard One Thing blasting out loudly in my headphones and her response was, 'euw why is that song playing?'
And this came in when I felt really low. Have you ever felt you have been given a lifeline, only to be ripped off from it so suddenly that you got too disoriented? It kind of felt like that; and every song in that album really lifted me up. They sounded so cheerful, so happy; they remind me of my teenage days, how it felt to be a teenager again. It was really nice. The positive vibe was so radiant that it left no space for negativity. Over time, of course there will always be a favourite member in the band :P who cares they are 3 - 6 years younger than me? I do look like I'm in their age range, or maybe even younger than that ;)
Since then, I've been following their releases closely; their second movie will be out in October, only for a weekend. And get this, the movie will only be available on 11th and 12th of October, and I have a morning run on the 12th *I crey* and the tickets are already available now in most countries but not here :( and their 4th album will be out later this year, can't wait for that! They even gave a free teaser from 'Four'; Fireproof is like a foreshadow that they are heading down the Westlife lane but I'm not settling for anything just yet. Ah, roll on November! Oh yes, even 1D Day! They had this 7-hour live streaming last year, which in local time, started at 3 am. Yes, bloody hell, did I wake up and watch it HAHAHAH it was fun and the fandom is hoping for another run this year. Don't bet on it, girls. The guys are too busy, and I feel sorry for them sometimes. Yes, they get to live their dreams and all but I hope exhaustion will not be the cause of their downfall.
So to sum it up, the boys make me feel like a teenager again and they helped me to get over one of the crappiest moments in my life. Some people will deffo ask, why not just deal with your miseries head on, instead of running away from it? Sometimes, dear friend, you will never get the answers to everything. It's best to just replace it, rather than to rue over it for far too long. I made a promise; which it was my kryptonite and that promise together had sealed off my rights of sharing my horrible feelings to anyone at that point of time. So thank you, Niall, Liam, Louis, Harry and Zayn :)
"They say when a door closes, another opens. I went to the opened door, only to have it slammed shut at my face with my foot stuck under the door. For too long I waited there but then I realized, there will always be another opened door. But this time, I'm afraid to even walk towards it."
