Wake Me Up

Not sure how many EDM fans I have following me, but I had to share this song! Great beat coupled with great lyrics make for an epic summer jam! Give it a listen!

Music Monday ..On a Sunday!

I know I’m not adhering to the traditional blogging rules (considering it’s not Monday and I’m sharing new music) ..But, this song is just too good, and I can’t resist!

Alesso’s remix of OneRepublic’s song “If I Lose Myself” combines the band’s heartfelt lyrics with tantalizing dance beats to create a hit you’ll be playing on repeat!

Music Monday! ..On a Tuesday….

Ok ok, so it’s not Monday anymore, but I really wanted to share this song with all of you! I have been listening to it on repeat for the last week and I’m *still* not tired of it!

We don’t sleep when the sun goes down
We don’t waste no precious time
All my friends in the loop
Making up for teenage crime

Chicago!

Just returned home from a [quick] trip to Chicago!

My friend Brittany and I went to the city on Wednesday to go see Swedish House Mafia perform. The group is currently on their last tour because they are all going to venture out as individual artists. I have always loved electronic dance music and SHM is one of my all-time favorite groups. Their music puts me in such an amazing trance and just makes me so happy. Even though the show was during the week, and I had to miss some classes, I couldn’t not see them.

The show was unbelievable and I am so happy I decided to go.

 

Thursday, Brittany and I just explored the city. We’ve both been to Chicago enough times that we’ve done most of the “touristy” things, which means we didn’t really have an agenda. It was so nice to just walk around and explore. I think that’s when you see the most, when you’re not really looking for something in particular, or trying to get somewhere in a hurry. We ended up getting a bit lost but it was great because we saw some wonderful new areas we’d never been to before.

As with any trip, food is most important, here are some snapshots of some of the eating I did while there:

While in Chicago, I also got to meet up with one of my friends from Luleå, Sweden. It’s been 5 years since the last time we saw each other! She’s studying at the university in Chicago now, so we’ll definitely be seeing more of each other. I missed her so so much.

Overall, the trip was great. Chicago is always a pleasure to visit and I cannot wait until my next trip back!
