After watching the actual event the morning of, I was so overwhelmed that I forgot there was an entire evening portion. As I was getting ready for bed, I caught up with a post that showed all the performances I had missed. To be honest, I didn’t care about everyone performing and this was the only one that I watched. But why did Katy Perry’s performance make me so emotional? There was something about the over extravagant fireworks and everyone watching them while listening to “Firework” that put me over the top.
It has only been a few days, but I feel incredibly relieved about everything. There has been a stiffness that I have felt for the last four years. And even just the last few weeks of silence paint a picture of what things could have been like all along.
