I saw my bf, Chris Martin, perform live for the third time last night. IT WAS SO GOOD. There is just something about seeing a band play in their hometown (not that I have seen any other band play in their hometown…but I am just assuming it’s always amazing.) Anyways, it really was overwhelmingly spectacular and I am so happy I got to be there with Stef and Jackie.

Pretty neat, huh?

Top 5 Favorite Things from this Coldplay concert:

1. When I sang along to In My Place with CM + 60,000 other fans at the Emirates Stadium in London.
2. When my video on my Nikon zoomed in a million feet and I could see CM’s eyelashes.
3. When they played 99 Problems from Jay Z and the Back to the Future theme song to start the show.
4. When they gave us wristbands that lit up during various parts. SO COOL.
5. When CM dedicated ‘Yellow’ to “my beautiful wife Gwyneth.” BAWLING.





My friend Fred (WHO IS THE GREATEST PERSON ON EARTH) works for Simmons Media and was able to get Jackie and I into The Black Keys sound check before their concert tonight. We also got to go to a meet&greet with only twenty other people and get pat&dan’s signatures and a picture.


I will post our picture when it goes live on x96.

Their concert was absolutely amazing. I love this band, and am so glad that I go to it with s&j. I had SO much fun.



Not Lying: It pays off.

Today I woke up at the crack of noon and reaaaaally didn’t want to work on/finish my presentation for my Mass Comm that was I scheduled to give at 4:00pm. I wrote a “Sorry, I can’t make it to class – I am mysteriously sick,” e-mail to my teacher.

Of course guilt took over and I drafted the e-mail and spent the next three and a half hours preparing for my presentation. When I got to school, I ran into a classmate walking in and I was informed that there was a power outage and that the South City campus was closed for the rest of the day.

SEE? I didn’t even have to lie to get out doing my presentation. Now I have ample time to get even more prepared for the scary 7-10 minutes alone in front of the class on Monday.

I love my life.


Also, I was rewarded with a prime parking spot and beautiful cotton candy skies:
