Daily Prompt: We all seem to insist on how busy, busy, busy we constantly are. Let’s put things in perspective: tell us about the craziest, busiest, most hectic day you’ve had in the past decade.
I don’t always insist that I am ‘busy, busy, busy’ – I think sometimes it just feels that way!
Let me think…it’s difficult to pinpoint the most hectic day I’ve had in the last decade but one definitely stands out. When McFly announced their tenth anniversary tour at the Royal Albert Hall in London, my friends and I scraped together some money and decided to go (of course, in our eyes it was essential that we went) – on a Friday evening. That Friday also happened to be a full day at college. So from eight o’clock in the morning until four in the afternoon, I was watching the clock impatiently as the end of the day approached. And when it did… well. We had to catch our train at five, still having to collect our tickets and meet our friend who was lost in the train station. Luckily, we made it with about a minute to spare. I suppose the actual journey was quite boring – nothing really happened – but as soon as we got off at St Pancras station we had to jog to arrive at the concert on time.
The actual performance was incredible.
That didn’t mean we weren’t absolutely shattered afterwards! We had to run for ten minutes to get to the underground on time and (suffocated by the joys of a tube) realised we had five minutes to catch our train. We ended up walking the wrong way at the station but somehow managed to hop on just as it was about to pull away. Honestly, it makes me stressed just thinking about it!
