I spent some in one of the grassy areas at Columbia University, and I was glad to admire the nice weather and stunning atmosphere.
A few weeks ago, I took a couple of friends to see a few exhibits at the Met. I particularly wanted to see the Rei Kawakubo/ Comme des Garçons show, as I had not seen it yet and heard amazing reviews. When I entered, I was stunned with how amazing the show looked. The way each piece was placed was very intricate and clearly took a lot of planning. The whole experience was amazing, and I was able to enjoy the remarkable work and every specific detail to each design. Though it was very crowded, I really enjoyed the display, and would definitely see it again!

A few days ago, Lorde released her sophomore album, Melodrama. Similar to her first album, Pure Heroine, there is not one song that I can say is worse than another! Though some of her songs like “Green Light” and “Liability” have been out for a while, and many people know the songs, the album collectively does not sound generic, or how many popular artists sound currently. Through each song you can hear her true passion, and beautiful voice as she sings. Some songs that exemplify her vocals would have to be either “The Louvre” or “Writer in the Dark”. Overall the album has a few slower songs that make one really listen to her voice and what she is singing about, combined with very upbeat rhythms.
Though waiting for this album to drop, it was definitely worth it!
There can only be one word for this concert: absolute sensational. The typical small venue that The 1975 usually performs at transformed into the renowned Madison Square Garden that so many artists dream of performing at. The still up and coming band sold out the arena and was filled with such a positive spirit. Not only were the performers very energetic and the crowd fed on that energy, it felt like the 20,000 people knew each and every lyric they performed. This is very different than the typical show one might see of The 1975, due to the fact that they usually play smaller shows, it still felt intimate and personal.
