I have tried to overcome a negative body image for as long as I can remember. I have been on hundreds of diets over the years. I just happened to start another one 2 weeks ago. I joined Weight Watchers at 11:57 p.m. on Monday, March 9, 2020. I was talking with fellow team member Melly at the time. Melly is my #1 supporter when it comes to POSITIVE body image.
As we all know, the Backstreet Boys are all married men with children. When they leave to go out on tour, they are working and spending time away from their families, the people they love.
They are missing important moments of their family’s lives, such as Nick’s daughter’s first moments or Howie’s oldest son’s school plays, things that parents want to be there for.
Years ago, talking about suffering from something like depression was kind of taboo. Hell, it still is in a way, but people are more open about it now.
Does introducing yourself to new people make you nervous? It scares the hell out of me. I wish I could be more open to new experiences and not stress so much about them.
Since joining the Backstreet Boys Fan Club I have met so many friends online. My first Facebook group I joined was the Official Backstreet Boys Fan Club. I felt comfortable immediately sharing my experiences. I began talking to a few people on a regular basis through messenger and was building relationships.
It never fails, when any type of Backstreet Boys news comes out, people’s opinions start splattering about – loving the news, hating it, completely ripping it apart, ripping other fans apart, and anything else you can think about.
You can never make everybody happy and I’m not one to be overly throwing out rainbows, unicorns, and happiness, but can we tone down the complaining a little?
Have you ever felt like you were attacked for just commenting on a Facebook post? It could be just a simple question because you don’t understand the post. One misunderstanding turns into a full-blown attack and several dozen notifications. It happens to ALL of us. No one is immune to “it’s my opinion” or “that’s what I said”.
Let’s start by saying the DNA Tour is already going down as one of our absolute favorites all-around for the Backstreet Boys. The set list has a strong mix of old school nostalgia combined with some new favorites from the 2019 DNA album, leaving all of us to scream our heads off after each and every song!
Brian Littrell released Welcome Home on May 2, 2006. I bought a “few” copies the day it went on sale. I’m the type of person who likes a copy of a CD at work and a copy at home. I always feared I would forget to either take it to work or bring it home at the end of the day.
There aren’t enough words or emojis or well, anything really to say how proud of Howie D I am. His vision, along with Tor Hyms and Lisa St. Louis came to life in such a magical way on the stage in Omaha.
For the first 37 years of my life, I never thought about how disabled people attended concerts. That all changed when my Mom had to have her leg (just below her knee) amputated in 2017.
My Mom took me to my first concert when I was in 4th grade to see New Kids on the Block. Then it was Alan Jackson, Garth Brookes, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, and eventually the Backstreet Boys. She loves the boys, maybe not as much as me, but she does. I’ve taken her to concerts since, such as NKOTBSB, Backstreet Boys, and even
Author’s Note: I have warm, fuzzy feelings when I think about each Backstreet Boy. This will be part of an ongoing series which covers first impressions of the boys.
If you’ve read my other posts, you’ll know that I’ve written my first impressions on Howie, Nick, AJ and Brian. I’ve re-written this blog post about 100 times because I felt like I wasn’t doing this person justice. It’s going to be a long one, so if you want, now is a good time to go grab a snack. Got your snack? Ok, here we go!
Let’s be real – while the boys are like no other and are always, 1000% worth it, they caaannn come with a steep price tag.
