Helloooooo. I've been quite busy in the past week and haven't had time to blog about what I've been up to, so I thought I'd put it all together in an update post.
I finished uni for Christmas just over a week ago, last Thursday, but stayed in Birmingham until Friday (yesterday) as I had work to do and also a couple of shows to go to.
Last Friday Charlie and I went to see a group she really likes, called The Overtones, at Symphony Hall. And they were so great. It was essentially a Christmas concert so it was very festive and got us into the spirit. The vocals were amaaaazing.
The following evening we went to The Institute to see Lower Than Atlantis, whose music I love. I felt rather faint when we got there so we stood and watched from the side, but they were brilliant, and I would happily see them again, as with The Overtones, despite the band and group being entirely contrasting.
I spent the next few days reading and doing some research for the essays I need to write over Christmas, to give myself a bit of a head start on the work. And on Thursday Charlie and I went to see one of our favourite musicals, Hairspray, at the New Alexandra Theatre, and it was amazing. It was almost six years to the day since we'd seen the show in London, so it was a bit nostalgic and just brilliant.
In terms of music, other than those already mentioned, I've been listening to Coldplay's new album, A Head Full of Dreams, rather a lot; it's so good, I can't wait to hear some of the songs live in June. And I've been listening to all the Christmas classics, as music is definitely the best part of the season for me (apart from the food of course).
I hope everyone is enjoying the start of the holidays and you all have nice plans for the Christmas period.
Until next time.
