Concerts

As the year is ending and summer is so close I can taste it! Only two exams, one presentation, and I am home free! This year has been a year full of learning and new experiences. From my first semester at a completely different college to ending my freshman year here at Fontbonne, it has most certainly been an interesting ride. I have grown a lot this year by figuring out what I really want to do with my life and the field of work I would like to end up in. This summer I am looking forward to sinking my teeth into a great new internship, taking a summer course, and of course spending some much needed time by the pool. I cannot wait to get some R&R after exams, but my summer to do list is quite lengthy and I cannot wait to get started. During the school year I never get to read as much as I would like to, summer is the perfect time to really get a hold of my reading list. My summer bucket list includes:

  1. Spontaneous road trips with friends!
  2. Become more of a religious yoga goer
  3. Redecorate and Reorganize
  4. Plan a brunch- hydrangeas and all
  5. COUNTRY CONCERTS- they are the best, even if you do not like country music the atmosphere is intoxicating! Get a group of friends together and go!!
  6. Leave my phone at home- I must be crazy but this summer I really want to try to leave my life source aka cell phone at home. If I am with my friends than I do not have to update anyone because they will all be there and if I run into an emergency I am positive someone in the group will have their phone.

This summer I want to detox and refocus to better prepare myself for next year. One semester down and many more to go, but I am so excited to continue this adventure here at Fontbonne!

Hello!

In this post, I would like to share about some music artists I heard this last Friday. I went to this small concert with a friend and even though we didn’t knew who was playing, we both ended up loving the bands. I have go before to this concert events, which are made by a music organization here in Saint Louis. One of the fun and interesting aspects about these concerts is that you don’t know who is playing till the day of the concert, it is always surprise, and it is so exciting! I really enjoy going to this concert, there were approximately 40 people and I could really appreciate the live music.

Three local bands performed in the concert, and I really like all of them. The first one was this girl called Hillary Fitz, which played songs with an Indie and Folk style. The second artist was Teszla, her music was very chill, electronic, and R&B, I think it was good mix of different styles. The third and last ones were Oskar and Julia, which were a married couple, and sang country music. I usually don’t hear country music, so it was cool hearing more about this music genre.

I love exploring local bands, they usually remain for a small target, but their music has always something different and original. This is something I have noticed in local bands back in my home country, Ecuador, and here in Saint Louis too. We all hear music from huge, very famous, and commercial artists, which is something amazing because they make great music. But, there is something special about local small bands that you don’t usually hear, for example, in radios or social media. This is why I really like going to small concerts, to give local music artists support, and let them know they have great talent too.

They are all on Spotify, if you are interested in listening them!!

Some pics I took 🙂

Anyone that knows me, knows that I am a HUGE fangirl. What is a “fangirl,” you may ask? The formal definition from Merriam-Webster says “a girl or woman who is an extremely or overly enthusiastic fan of someone or something.” In other words, a diehard fan that goes crazy at the sight or sound of a beloved artist. That is me 100%. (I even have a couple tattoos representing my favorite artists, if that doesn’t tell you enough about me…) I love going to as many concerts as I can, and sometimes even travel to see a particular artist. I feel like the memories I make at concerts are always worth it, and I never regret going to see a live show of any kind. The energy of a live performance is like no other.

It seems as if there is always a concert or show that I have tickets for. It keeps life exciting; there’s always something to look forward to. I already had tickets to a Beatles tribute band called Rain. I see them annually at the Fabulous Fox theater. And now I also secured tickets to The Weeknd and Lady Gaga! I will be traveling to Seattle in April to stay with some family members up there, and see The Weekend while in town. I have never seen him live before and am really looking forward to it! Lady Gaga is coming to St. Louis in November, so have a bit of time before that one. But still exciting! This will be my second time seeing her live in concert. I am anticipating Ed Sheeran (one of my absolute favs) to announce tour dates any day now. So that will hopefully be another one to add to my list. (My wallet won’t be too happy about that one..) Stay tuned for my many concert excursions. Life is always an adventure!

The great thing about Fontbonne University is that it provides the comfort and close-knit feeling of a small school but is placed amongst a busy and bustling city. The small size of Fontbonne allows for small staff to student ratios as well as a community that truly cares about what is best for you. At the same time, Fontbonne is merely fifteen minutes away from the historic and wonderful downtown St. Louis, which provides an abundant amount of fun things to do. Beyond things such as going to a Cardinals game at Busch Stadium and getting a tour of the Arch, downtown St. Louis has many concerts, plays, 5k runs, musicals, parades and many more. Just this past weekend, I went to the Little Big Town concert at the beautiful and classic Fox Theatre; only ten minutes away from Fontbonne. Fontbonne is unique in that it truly is  a place that cares about the success of its students in the small-school setting while allowing the community to embrace the many opportunities and events of the city of St. Louis.

Here is a link of the events happening in St. Louis soon:

Fangirl Frenzy

by Alumni Posts March 16, 2015

Anyone that knows me knows that I am an extreme fangirl. This means that I have many celebrities that I am a huge fan of (and probably take that fandom to the next level), and tend to talk about those people a lot. And I mean a lot. It can also mean that you buy […]

My Favorite Things About Saint Louis

by Alumni Posts September 24, 2014

Despite the fact that I was born in Saint Louis and grew up only 45 minutes from the city (on the Illinois side), I never really got to know Saint Louis until I started at Fontbonne. After adjusting to transferring to Fontbonne, I started to explore Saint Louis more than I had before.  I’ve finally […]

The Original J.T.

by Alumni Posts July 30, 2014

If you are into music and pop culture, you probably think of Justin Timberlake when you hear the initials J.T. However, before the modern J.T. was James Taylor. He was the original, considering he first rose to fame in the 1970s. He continues to be an outstanding singer, songwriter, and guitarist, and I feel lucky […]

My summer has continued to be absolutely fabulous. Over the weekend, I took a trip to Kansas City for one reason and one reason only: the One Direction concert! This is the closest they were going to be to St. Louis. This major event has been a long time coming. I bought tickets 13 months […]

Mother Monster invades St. Louis

by Alumni Posts February 5, 2013

This past weekend I experienced something beyond my wildest dreams by attending the Lady Gaga concert. I had a lot of fun, and words cannot even describe her show. The massive castle-inspired set pieces, magnificent couture dresses, high-tech effects, talented dancers, and powerhouse vocals were all over the top in every way possible. But then […]

How Did I Get Here? I Do Not Know.

by Alumni Posts February 25, 2011

First, let me start my second post off by proclaiming my love for rainy days. While I love the sun, there’s something absolutely calming about rain, and it makes me really happy. The only downside of today’s precipitation, though, was walking back to my dorm a few minutes ago in a skirt, tights, and my […]
