In exactly 6 days I will be seeing one of my all time favorite singers live.  When I first heard that Ed Sheeran would be coming to The Pageant in St. Louis I could bearly contain my emotions.  Ed Sheeran is a singer from England.  I discovered his music about a year ago and have loved it ever since.  He writes his own lyrics and his music is all very personal, I think that’s what I admire about it the most.  I knew that he would be doing a U.S. tour but I didn’t think he would be stopping in St. Louis. When my friend told me that the tour dates were out, I wasn’t that excited because most of the bands I like usually go to Chicago or Kanas City. When I pulled up the tour dates and saw St. Louis I was in shock.  Two of my friends and I decided that we had to go to the concert.

From my experience it has always been kind of difficult to get tickets at this venue because it’s smaller than most. We were all so nervous that we wouldn’t be able to get the tickets online, since that process always seems to be very frustrating when tickets are in high demand.We wanted to make sure that we did everything we could to get the tickets.  We called the pageant in advanced to see if we could reserve the tickets, but they said no, since the tickets still weren’t on sale.  When we asked them what the best thing to do to insure we get tickets was, they said that we should consider coming to The Pageant the day the tickets go on sale.  He also advised us to get there early because we definitely weren’t the first to call about this concert.

When the tickets went on sale, my friends and I were one of the first few people to get in line.  I was so happy that we  got there as early as we did because there was a very long line behind us after a while. Sure enough we got our tickets and were all very pumped. Now that the concert is right around the corner I am more excited than ever. I hope the concert owns up to all my excitement, I’m positive it will.

The Future

The future is something I find myself thinking about frequently.  Though I know that I am not alone with that, obviously everyone thinks about the future, I feel that I think about it more often than I should be.  The future can be exciting to think about and scary. After all it’s the unknown.  That is what bothers me.  I like to have things planned out as much as possible but I know that I can’t know what is lying ahead. Though I am a woman in faith and believe that He will get me thorough anything and knows what is best for me, I can’t help but to stress over it. I just need to remind myself that everything will go as planned. I need to let go and let God.

My goal is to stop dwelling on the future and live in the now.  I need to focus on my school work, the people that make me happy, and my faith.  If I can successfully do that I will have less stress on me and be able to relax. Let-Go-Let-God

My college experience, so far..

Going into college I was uncertain of what I wanted to major in or what kind of clubs/sororities I wanted to be a part of. My freshman year of college I attended Murray State University.  Murray was a great first experience for me.  I met lots of new people and was very involved in an on campus christian ministry called Campus Outreach.  Not too far into the first semester I figured out what I thought my major and occupation would be for the rest of my life.  Elementary education was what I had my mind-set on.  I felt being a teacher was my purpose in life.  I was so enthusiastic about the program and was ready to begin all of the classes that you have to complete before you can declare your major.  murray-state

Then things started to take a turn in my life. For some reason I felt pulled to SIUE.  I had this strong feeling that I needed to transfer. After all, it made sense for me to leave Murray to further my degree in education and be certified in the state that I would most likely be living a few years after college.  This would make it easier to find a job if I did student teaching in schools nearby. When I finally decided that I was going to transfer, I had a mixture of emotions.  I was excited to transfer because I love new experiences, plus it helped that I knew people there.  On the other hand I was going to miss all the people at Murray.

 Transferring to SIUE was one of the best decisions I ever made.  Starting the first semester I was in classes for the elementary eduction.  Sitting in those classes, I felt really limited.  I wasn’t as happy as I thought I would be with the major.  I decided to talk to my mom about what I should do and after a few ideas, we realized that I should do Public Relations.  Throughout high school, I was always good at speeches, especially since I was in speech team.  Writing is also one of my strong points.  Although I have only just began studying PR I feel comfortable and happy that I have chosen it as my major. I hope that having this blog will further my writing skills and prepare me for any PR tasks I may encounter.
