My roommate and I bought the tickets to see Panic! last summer, and when you get tickets to something so far in advance it feels like a dream that will never actually come. When the time came this weekend to actually go it felt unreal. It just so happened that on the same day the Polar Vortex was coming through Northeast Ohio so classes got cancelled for two days. Which worked out perfect for us because we didn’t have to worry about class the day after the concert. It also meant I was being subjected to my first negative temperatures. Let me tell you, I hate everything about it and 0/10 would NOT recommend having anything to do with such cold temperatures. But I did go out and brave the subzero temps because priorities. Although my toes did not approve of my choices. I am sorry for turning you into icebergs toes, but it was worth it.
One of my friends had given me a Panic! shirt for Christmas so I was able to wear that over a long sleeve to the concert. (Thanks Val!) We got the concert around 6 and P!ATD came on at 8:50, so we got hotdogs and candy to pass the time while watching the opening acts. Betty Who and Two Feet were the openers, neither was bad but I had never heard of them so I wasn’t as into it as I have been for other openers before.

Spotify does this thing at the end of the year where they put together a little interactive slide at the end of the year that puts together all of your music stats for the year.

When I looked at it, I realized that my wrapped this year capsulated a ton of stories of the past few years and I thought it would be fun to share. Continue reading
Classical Music and even just instrumental music, in general, does not get enough love as it deserves. It can be often described as “boring” and “all sounding the same,” but this type of music is anything but that. I love listening to classical and instrumental music on car rides, walking to classes, doing homework, or just relaxing around the house. Although, the one difficult thing with classical music is you can’t google search a piece by just saying “the one piece where the flutes do some really high part.”
Classical/Instrumental music has many benefits to it. It has been proven to decrease blood pressure, increase productivity, and boost memory. It is also good for helping to increase creativity, and some studies have found that it can alleviate symptoms of depression.
I am here to share with you some of my favorite classical pieces as well as some pieces for the people who claim they hate it. Continue reading
As a music minor, it is only fitting that much of my days revolve around music. When I get up, in the car, doing work, even sometimes in my dreams, music is either playing aloud or in my head. So new to the blog this week is my Tunes of the Week.
A lot of new music has been coming out in recent weeks from artists I like, so here are the three albums I have been listening to the most. Continue reading
