Hello my worldly companions,
It would be really amazing of you if you could click here and like my talented boyfriend’s photography page. He has nature scenes, music festivals, cars, dogs, parades, season changes, and an obvious eye for color. I would be eternally grateful if everyone would like and share his page. Let’s get his like up in the hundreds!
Also! If you could send him good vibes and comment on his pics I’d love it!
My boyfriend got wonderful photos of Global Union this year!! Go check out the link above and like his page. This was my first time going to Global Union and it was amazing!!! We got to watch some real talent.
La Yegros was a sexy and fun sounding band. Their female vocal was delightful and funny, she also had amazing fashion sense. They were a mix of electric instruments and old Latin flavor.
Wu Force is an “Avant-garde Appalachian-Chinese folk trio”. I would have to say that they were my favorite part of Global Union. I loved their mix of almost Celtic sounding vibes with the Chinese harp.
Kobo Town is Alternative Calypso. They caused everyone to get up and dance! It was amazing to see so many different kinds of people dancing together. Things really got swinging when Calypso Rose joined Kobo Town. She was so cute and funny. She made jokes with the crowd and had an amazing ability to get everyone pumped up.
The last group was Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars. They were also amazing! Their drums and vocals really stood out. At the end of their set they asked for everyone to donate to stop the spread of Ebola in their home country.
The best part of Global Union was just the feeling of freedom. People brought their kids and dogs. The food was amazing, and so were the handcrafted items. It was an experience that I will never forget!
I’m starting to feel that itch to go back to school already. I miss Alverno! Mostly, I miss having a regular schedule I can rely on. My summers are pretty unscheduled and this year I have an internship. I can basically come and go from my internship as I please as long as I get my 120 hours done for the summer. Currently, we are working on fundraising and trying to get flower donations for our patients.
I also miss my classes and always being busy. I’m so bored!!! I have things I can do but my summer laziness has gotten the best of me and I mostly vegitate on the couch. I really need to get my butt in gear so I can be ready for my last year. This coming May I’m going to graduate and then go to grad school so I’ll be busy for the next two years with that. Being a psych student involves so much school!
I have really loved Alverno and I would tell any girl to go there. The amount of learning and growth you gain would just amaze you!
