This one takes me bad to grade eight. I was the nerdy kid, with big glasses, messy hair and an obsession with Ashley Angel, Jacob Underwood and Making of the Band. When my dad told me about a contest in our local newspaper to win tickets to an O-Town concert, I knew I had to enter. Enter, I did. And won! To be specific I won front row tickets for me and seven friends to see O-Town, live in concert!
My only problem? I didn't have seven friends (see: nerd, glasses, messy hair). I had two. Now I had to find five more people. Whatever will I do?!
The moment I walked into class and announced that I had tickets to see O-Town, suddenly, everyone wanted to be my new BFF. Oh boy!
So, how did I choose who the lucky five to join me and my two friends would be? I decided to choose the only girls that didn't pick me at any time throughout the school year. Ha! Take that bullies!
The day of the concert comes and we're the happiest eight girls you'd ever seen. Truth be told, the seats weren't actually front row. They were front-row balcony. Close enough!
Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures from this concert, but I promise you, I'm not cat-fishing. This really is a true story. I even had my picture posted in my local newspaper with the caption, "Contest winner and her friends" (something along those lines). The picture was terrible. I had red-eye underneath my thick rimmed glasses and I was wearing a big puffy winter jacket. I destroyed the copy of the picture that we had in our home. Like I said, it was terrible.
Oh and those friends? Yeah, I don't talk to any of them now. Let's just say, those were not the greatest years of my life. But that concert sure was awesome!
Then I grew up and this happened...
Ah, the ignorance of a 12-year-old.
Now I know you're wondering... what do the boys look like now?
You might have noticed something...
Where the heck is Ashley?
Well, he declined the offer for a comeback tour (boo!).
In case you're wondering though, he looks like this now:
Yeah, he's still gorgeous.
Now go visit Emily!
