If only I were older: anyone else feel this way?
« on: August 11, 2012, 02:27:40 pm »
Since I'm a really young Nessaholic, if only I were older, I could have at LEAST gone to the Harmonium tour as a child, and then been old enough get MYSELF to Heroes & Thieves and RotR. Are there any other younger Nessaholics out there that feel this way? I'm pretty upset that I couldn't go to RotR, either. Like, it's been a while and it STILL kills me. I'm fifteen. Hit me up if you're young and want to talk about feels! <3

i was 15 during the H&T era, and harmonium was my favorite album ever at that time (still ranks up there). i remember haunting these boards all the time being terribly disappointed that i had been too young for harmonium-era shows. i'd also felt/still feel disappointed that i missed v's time of more frequent and consistent shows. so i feel ya.

Ahh, thanks. Yep, still trolling these boards, waiting until I can finally go to a show, haha. :)

Fortunately I was 18 during the BnN days, so I've been to some good shows.  Keep your chins up you young whippersnappers and your time will come.  Totally worth the wait.
I think you underestimate the level of my sneakiness

my advice is that when you are old enough, don't be afraid to go by yourself.  I've been doing a lot of traveling lately to see vanessa and I've been going by myself.  I missed a lot of concerts (not necessarily vanessa) in the past because I didn't want to go by myself. These days I realize that there are lots of people to meet and things to discover on your own!  I have lots of fun!

I just turned seventeen (yesterday, actually!) and I know exactly what you're talking about. I remember I was on the old official forums stalking the concert threads for Heroes and Thieves (I actually didn't particularly like Harmonium, so I wasn't exactly a fan then) waiting for Nessa to come close enough to where I live so that I could see her as well. Never happened, but oh well. (: Just got my license so I suppose I'll be seeing her soon enough.

I know how you feel, during the Harmonium era she did 3 shows in my state, and one of those shows was less than 10 minutes away from my house :'( But I was 15 when I got to go to my first show last October (It's almost been a year already?!?)  Anyway I'm 16 now and have my license. Hopefully I will be able to go to a show by myself or with some friends.
