I took myself out on a date to see Karol G
I'm my own best company! Besides, why wait for a date when I can just take myself out?
I decided to do something amazing for myself. Since 2022, I’ve wanted to see Karol G in concert. When she performed at Barclays in Brooklyn during that time, I had Evan in tow. I could have taken my then 6-year-old child to the concert with me. I lost count of all the kids that were at Gillette stadium that night way past their bedtime.
But if I know one thing about my son is that he is not a fan of late nights - or of his momma gyrating. The kid cramps my sexy style!
I was bummed but determined! I said to myself: I am going to see Karol G in concert. It’s decided!
Prior to 2022, I didn’t know much about Karol G or her music. I knew a song or two, like “Tusa” featuring Nikki Minaj, but I had yet to dive into her discography. When she dropped her single “Provenzia” I had to hear more!
It helped that I found her music the summer that I met a special someone. It was the summer of 2022. Her tunes were always blaring in my car when I drove to meet him for date nights and drove back to my place after spending the night with him.
Fast forward to September 28, 2023, and, yes, I made it to a Karol G concert. I bought a ticket to see her at Gillette Stadium, booked a hotel room for one (with two beds - how dare they?!), and drove 4 hours to Massachusetts. I had a blast at the concert by myself. Cause I am a lot of fun! And although the drive back was like I was in the middle of Monsoon Season, I would do it all over again.
Lesson here: do what you love even if it’s by yourself. Take a risk even when it’s scary. Life is too short to sit at home wishing you were jamming to “Amargura” when you can actually be jamming to “Amargura.”
