You know, sometimes, life can be hard. I’m sure you’ve figured that one out by now. I’m just going to be completely honest in this week’s blog and then I promise to be positive. Life stressors can be very overwhelming. There’s job #1, job #2, and job #3. And then there’s school. And then there’s the fact that your coworker/friend makes such a huge mistake, all the local news stations pick it up. And you lose a family member. And then you lose a student. And you’re trying to search for a new apartment. And oh yeah, try to spend some quality time with my fiancé, family, and friends. It’s. A. Lot. With so much going on, it can be challenging to handle everything.

Although it may seem like I am complaining, I still wouldn’t have it any other way. I have always been a busy-bee. At the end of the day, I thoroughly enjoy getting involved in as much as I can. But it is important to learn how to say no sometimes. I am learning that. Especially with so many unplanned events going on, I had to realize what I can and cannot handle. I’m sure many of my fellow bloggers and Fontbonne students reading this are also heavily involved with school, work, and extracurricular activities. And I am telling you that it is okay to say no. Do as much as you can, but do not forget to take care of yourself and lose sight of what’s most important to you.

On a typical day, I have many things that I need to accomplish within one day. But I am realizing more and more the importance of finding a little bit of a break time in between one thing from the next. For me, I help unwind by listening to music (Ed Sheeran’s new album, Divide, is my top right now). Also, I try to take my time while eating dinner. I used to eat on the go or maybe not even at all. More and more, I crave for dinner time to be that hour of my day to relax and catch up with my fiancé and family. Find that thing for you that will keep you going throughout that day. It’s so vital to your mental and physical health. And don’t ever lose sight of your end goal. School can be challenging and it is time-consuming, but it has so many perks. At the end of the day, I love learning and love that it will get me to where I want to be in life. I also love my job and all the opportunities and relationships it brings. I am grateful for my fiancé, friends, and for my family. All in all, I do not have it bad.  Not at all. I have it great. I just need to learn from life’s obstacles and just keep swimming.

Hey everyone!

Happy April!!! This week I’m going to talk to you about my favorite type of music… which I don’t have one.

Okay, byeee. Blog’s over!

Just kidding. But I truly don’t have a favorite type of music, I just love music in general. I love having music playing wherever I go, wherever I am; I just love music and the messages that artists are trying to convey through their art that is music.

But back to the prompt: my favorite musical artist right now might possibly be Drake. I am not just saying this because More Life came out on March 17th, but it definitely adds to my love of Drake music. I never really knew that I liked rap music because sometimes I don’t consider Drake to be rap, sometimes he can have more pop tendencies to his music. But I think that’s why so many people like listening to him. I discovered him much later than some of the true fans (shoutout to them though for their dedication), but I still appreciate his music as well. I may not be a longtime fan, but I still appreciate his music, both old and new, as much as I can; and my appreciation for music is shown with me trying to learn the lyrics as quickly as possible. Hence why I’ve listened to More Life almost on loop since it came out…

Well, if I listed all of my favorite artists, songs, albums, and any other music related things, we would be here for days… but check back in next time to read my next blog!

peace out,




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!!

Hello everyone,

I hope you have had a great first week back on campus after spring break and you are all ready for the home stretch of the semester.  This week I am going to write about one of the many new albums being released in stores nationwide, as I am aware there are probably many albums to be excited about in the upcoming months.  Whether you are someone who listens to pop, country, Christian, Rock, or Hip Hop music, there are likely lots of artists who have new songs being released. One of my favorite types of music to listen to is Christian, in which there are many artists who are currently on tour sharing their music with fans all across the nation.  From one band to the next they always have new, inspirational music to share with people from all parts of the country and often times it is heard on K-Love radio stations in major cities.  A band I have grown to like a lot is called Mercyme in which they have a single they have released in the last month as a teaser to their album release.  Their most recent album was actually launched yesterday on the internet and in major retailers.  This new album is called lifer and there are many new great songs such as Even If, which is very relatable for many of their fans. This song is about going through battles in life and realizing that God is there by your side to help you get through it all and for believers to know that God will help you make it out of even your worst struggles. As a fan of this band, I am very excited to buy this album soon so that I can hear some of their other songs they have produced on this new album, Lifer. lifer-mercyme

Thanks for reading and come back next week to see what I have to tell about.



Current Music Addictions

by Yuri April 3, 2017

It may come as no surprise, but what I am currently listening to are the songs that will be releasing alongside with the movie: The Fast and Furious 8 – or Fate of the Furious… (a genius marketing tactic if you ask me). But again, since I addressed that my go-to genre of music is […]

It has been  pouring rain here in STL, so that means no exploring the city, but  just really focusing on work. When I am working on either blog related things, school, or personal I have to have music on in the background. I love listening to music either while I am writing emails, writing, or […]

“What is Your Favorite Type of Music?”

by Jessica March 31, 2017

Whew, that’s a tough question! I grew up listening to a lot of different kinds of music; rock, world, hip-hop, and soundtracks to name a few. I would use music to help me create stories; giving characters themes and setting songs for scenes. Lately (by that I mean a few years), I’ve been listening to […]

Upcoming Concerts!

by Carly February 22, 2017

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 […]

Hey Y’all!

by Jessica February 16, 2017

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! Do you like music? I do. I listen to it for fun, I listen to it to help me study, and I listen to it to daydream about my stories. “Why should I care?” you ask? Well, you probably shouldn’t. I just wanted to share some music with you. Today, I’ll […]
