Twenty One Pilots Concert

Hello everyone! Me here. Just another weekly playlist that’s entirely not a playlist! Aren’t those the best? (don’t answer that…)

Anyways, let’s get right on down to business! Waaaaay back when, on August 6th, I saw Twenty One Pilots on their Emotional Roadshow tour. Social media, aka tumblr fangirls, claim the show to be “existential.” And while I do have a tumblr, I am not a fangirl. But I will say that they hit the nail on the head with this one. I’ve never been to a show where the singer crowd surfs in the equivalent of a human hamster ball, or one where the magic acts are commonplace.

These two could join the US Olympic gymnastics team given the amount of back flips I saw that Saturday night, not to mention the impressive flip off the piano. The physicality of the show is something I would’ve seen bands do in smaller venues. In the Infinity Arena in Duluth the impressive light displays and the audience of thousands the venue seems massive, but the touches of tumbling and aerobatics from Josh and Tyler the show became more personal.

Some of my favorite songs from the concert? None other than Migraine, Car Radio, Trees, The Judge, Heathens, Stressed Out, Hometown, and House of Gold.

A Playlist for the Week

Hey guys, me here. Sorry for not being the most talkative person this week. It’s recruitment week at my university and I’ve been rushing around trying to do half a million things at once! But Bid Day is tomorrow and I can’t even begin to describe how excited I am to meet the new members!!!! Hopefully I’ll be able to make a post all about Bid Day and how awesome my sorority members are later this week, but for now I’m running on about four hours of sleep and no caffeine.

Without further to do, here’s my playlist for this week! All the songs are from older movies about high school, the quintessential time period for “growing up.” I’d like to challenge that notion. I did most of my growing up in college. Particularly the first two months of freshman year. In high school you can joke around and figure out what you think you want to do with yourself in the long run, but in college you actually put your foot in the door and start becoming the person you want to be in the long run.

Blind Date With a Book

Being the lovable bookworm that I am, I tend to indulge in bookstores way more than I should. Case in point: Malaprop’s Bookstore and Cafe in Asheville, North Carolina.

Blind date with a bookseller - Malaprops, Asheville NC One shelf in Malaprop’s, an independent, quirky bookstore, is reserved for something called “Blind Date With a Bookseller.” The books are wrapped individually in brown packaging paper. The black writing on them is a list of adjectives, describing each one. The price and serial number are on the back. The rules are, you pick a book based off the adjectives. You’re allowed to guess what the title is, but you can’t unwrap the book until you’ve bought it. The best part is that if you’ve already read that title, or if you finish it and end up not liking it, you can return it for a refund or for another blind date book.

My friend DeAnna and I popped in here for a quick second and both ended up buying one of the mystery books! books wrapped as blind dates

I’ve done this one time before. I ended up picking out The Catcher in the Rye, which I’ve read nine times. I also have my own copy at home, and while it’s getting a bit worn I still wouldn’t ever replace it. The pages are covered in ballpoint pen sketches of scenes or iconic items from the book, like the red hunting cap, and all my notes from when I read this book with my AP Language class in junior year. Although The Catcher in the Rye is no longer my favorite book, it holds a special space in my heart. Part of me thinks that I picked it out during my search for the perfect “blind date” because I loved it so much.

So this time when picking out a mystery book I looked for characteristics I wanted in an actual date. Somebody I’d swipe right on Tinder to. Maybe Bumble too. An actual dream boy, ya feel? Because boys in books are just better.

I chose the adjectives: magical, original, timeless, tender, and the phrase “love letter to childhood

blind date with a book

So this month, instead of having a “Read This if You Liked…” post I’m going to go on my blind date with my book and let you all know how it goes. Get ready for an awesome surprise review at the end of August!

If you have any guesses as to what my book is, or who it could be by, let me know in the comments!

Moving Into Sorority Row

Hey y’all! Things have been craaaaazy busy in my life as of late. But, good news! I moved into the Delta Gamma sorority house at the University of Georgia!

I’m already loving living with my sisters. They’ve been super great all through our hectic song practice schedules. We even had an alum from LA fly in to give a lecture on the purpose of recruitment! How neat is that?

So I bet you’re all dying to see what my dorm looks like…

Delta Gamma Bedspread

How cute is this?! My wonderful big made me the two canvases (the red says “glory glory to ole Georgia” and the black says “& if not He is still good Daniel 3:18”) and my mom got me the “on my mind” Georgia wall hanging.

Delta Gamma Sorority House Room

This is my roommate’s side of the room. And that’s her fish, Fitz, on top of my dresser!

my desk at Delta Gamma Delta Iota chapter

Last but not least, here is my desk, where I will probably be spending a majority of my time. Note my Betta fish, Tetra, and my moss ball, Marimo.  Hopefully I’ll be able to do a tad bit more decorating before school starts on the 11th (the walls look a little bare, don’t they?) 🙂
