Okay, so I had to share this and get some affirmation that I didn’t just throw away $383. I don’t think I threw the money away; I think it was a wise investment, considering my age (young) and position (employed & paid well) now compared to where I will probably be the rest of my life (theatre actress).
I got a bonus from work which was absolutely HUGE. Well, from my tiny perspective anyway - it was a lot of money to receive in one lump sum. So, I decided to splurge and nab the last box seats (central seats, not even on the sides) to the April performance of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra & Chicago Symphony Chorus performing Verdi’s Requiem in its entirety. I decided that I didn’t know when such an opportunity would arise again and so I jumped on it.
I believe this will not be just a classical music concert by the greatest symph. orch. in the world today, but a mind-blowing experience. Ever since I bought the tickets last week, all I listen to is this piece and its all I can think about.
Am I just nuts?
