Making Memories > School (Sometimes)


Hey y'all! I have been so busy these last few weeks first with RUSH then catching up on school work, going home for a visit, and coming back here to catch up on more school work! I've had a lot going on with school and DG but I'm going to try to make blogging more of a priority in the next few weeks.

This past week was super fun because I got to go to a concert and see a musical! I had a ton of school work this week but for once I made making memories (by going to the concert/musical) a priority over my schoolwork. I'm definitely one of those people who tends to put school above everything else  but I firmly believe that sometimes we just need to do what we want. I'm not saying to go out every night and never do your homework, but once in a while its okay, good even, to prioritize something else instead.


On Tuesday night I went to the Orpheum in Memphis to see Cinderella (the musical). It was phenomenal!! If you've been reading my blog for a while, you know I love theatre, and this was an incredible show. The music was great but what really stuck out to me was the dancing and the costumes. The costumes were brilliant and the onstage costume changes were magical (seriously I still don't know how they pulled them off). The costumes enhanced the already amazing dancing and I left the show in awe.


On Wednesday night, I drove to Jackson, Mississippi for the State Fair where I indulged on some of my favorite fair foods (like mini doughnuts--seriously obsessed). We went to the fair to see Shawn Mendes who was playing for FREE! Shawn opened for Taylor Swift over the summer (see this post) and he was so good that I went home and bought his whole album. Since then I've basically had his whole album on repeat, his songs are so good! And he is incredible live. He's only 17 so there were a ton of young kids at the concert but it was totally worth the 4+ hours spent in the car to see him. If you haven't listened to any of his stuff, seriously check him out!
