If I have a gift of money that is enough to but either a piece of jewelry I like or
If I have a gift of money that is enough to but either a piece of jewelry I like or tickets to a concert I want to attend, I probably choose to go to the concert instead of jewelry.
First, a concert can give you an entertainment and experience that a piece of jewelry such as diamond rings and necklaces can’t give. A few years ago, I attended a farewell concert of a famous singer. The moment when people submerged into the beautiful melody was unforgettable and that is one of my most precious memories I have ever had. If I had used the money to buy some jewelry, I would have been regretful in my lifetime.
Second, concert is an experience that can’t duplicate, while jewelry can. If you can’t buy a piece of jewelry at once, you will probably get it a few years later. But a concert is different. You can’t find the singers, the location, the atmosphere of joy exactly the same if you miss it. So that gives concert a priority to jewelry and many other things.
Finally, concert can give you an entertainment of art and a relaxation from the busy work, while jewelry can give you at most just a moment of vanity. Compared to concert’s long lasting joy, jewelry’s is just an evanescent one. You will remember a wonderful concert for a lifetime. But I think there are few pieces of jewelry you’ll wear for a lifetime.
If I have a choice between jewelry and concert, I will pick up the tickets of the concert without hesitate. Because I don’t want to miss a probably once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and spending the rest of my life regret for the wrong choice I make.
