Ah, long time no speak…I dropped off the blogging radar big time! (I’m sorry!)
As my first post back I thought it would be fitting to do one of my favourites- 5 things that have made me smile in the past month!
Weezer, O2 Academy Birmingham 27.10.2017
In April 2016 I uploaded a post discussing a once in a life time experience: seeing Weezer live.
When writing this I honestly thought it would be the only time I would every get to see them, little did I know a year later I would be getting tickets and counting down the days till I next saw them!
Like the first time, it was a dream come true! I just love the atmosphere of a Weezer crowd, every single person in that room is having the time of their life and you can just feel it. You won’t find anyone pushing and creating unnecessary mosh pits, you won’t find anyone being made uncomfortable by the presence of another. Instead you’ll find groups of strangers coming together and partying- all accompanied with huge smiles plastered on their faces.
Spray, Paint, Love/ Frank Carter and The Rattlesnakes
It was kinda inevitable that this would make an appearance on this list. Beside the obvious (my favourite band releasing new music), I LOVE this song. It has been on repeat since its release, which is odd because its not like anything I would usually listen to- its just guaranted to lift my mood whenever I listen.
The Good Wife.
Ah, thing that has taken over all of my spare time- The Good Wife! This semester I am taking two modules that are about the courtroom/legal process, which means the courtroom is taking over my life- the good wife accompanies it perfectly! …It still counts as revision right?
I have just fallen in love with everything. The storyline, the characters. Everything!!
Can I just become Alicia Florrick now please??
Enter Shikari, The Motorpoint Arena Cardiff 17.11.2017
Enter Shikari has really changed the game for arena shows this year! Quadraphonic sound is the future!
Each time I see shikari they get bigger and better, it is incredible to see a band go from the Falmouth Princess Pavillions to arena shows (arena shows that are on another level might I add.) Honestly, it is hard to describe the show – but it really did feel like something from another planet (if you have seen them live before you will get what I mean.) It was just so lovely, to be amongst friends, singing songs I loved and watching a truly magnificent performance.
During the past month I had my sisters come visit me at uni. It was lovely to have a good old fashioned sleep over with them (we watched every single Harry Potter film, which was perfect in itself), to show them what uni life is like, to show them the wonderful city of Cardiff and to just spend some quality time with them.
It was the perfect distraction from uni deadlines, and exactly what I needed this month.
