Hey all!! Well I can't really be bothered to update my journal at the moment. I have 43 emails to read and the board to keep updated and so I don't wanna bother with the journal as well coz I end up rushing around and I hate that!! I'm doing an entry today though coz tomorrow is a special day and as I won't be home to do an entry I shall do it today instead..........................
You all know I'm a major Queen fan!! (If you don't I'm very surprised!!) Thursday 24th November 2005 sees the 14th anniversary of the day Freddie Mercury left us all!!
This entry is dedicated to him - my shooting star!!
I would like to just write what I wrote a few years ago on this same particular day!!Freddie Queen fans will always feel the pain and sadness on this day The day that the world lost one of the greatest showman!! I miss you like crazy and I wish I could have had the chance to meet you and tell you how fantastic you were. Most of all I would've loved just to give you a hug Missing you now and always!! I don't think I shall ever forget the day after he passed away. The alarm had woken me for school as usual, mum had just brought up a cup of tea and the radio was on. The news came on and they told me Freddie had passed away during the hours of Sunday evening. It shocked me!! I hadn't seen the papers the day before (or maybe I had I don't honestly remember!) They played Bohemian Rhapsody (or these are the days). What I can remember vividly was standing at the bus stop waiting for the bus to turn up, and all the time thinking of how he was gone and we were never gonna see him again!! It got hold of me all day. I remember being in a class with Trina and two mates and we started talking about it and how great the band was in general. Thus began the fascination with the band.
Yes I was too late to see them live but like I said before I live with that and although I regret it, I am proud to be a fan!! I am proud of all that I have achieved during the last 14 years of being a fan and I am glad I found them when I did!! I have been to many places, met many people I probably wouldn't have done so if I'd just stuck to listening to music but not going to gigs etc........ I am also deeply grateful to the band and their music. They have helped me through tough times and make me smile and dance and sing ;-) Thank you Freddie I hope where ever you are, you are having a ball darling xx (I also hope my grandad, my cat and my hamster are keeping you company)!! Your dedicated fan Jenny xx
