I can’t remember the last time I wrote a blog post just to write a blog post. It’s not that I’ve run out of bookish content or anything like that, believe me…there is a lot more coming your way. I just thought I’d like to quickly write a little blog post about what’s going on in my life. I know I have my weekly updates, but only a small portion of those is dedicated to my personal life. So, here we go! Let’s talk!
Life is about to get a little busy for me soon, as per usual come August/September. I feel like September is just a month that is full of events and things to do and I want to do all of them…so maybe my busy schedule is my own fault. Between now and the first week of September, I have 4 concerts that I’m going to.
Today (Tuesday July 18) I’ll be heading to see Queen & Adam Lambert for the second time in about three years. It was such an amazing show last time my sister and I went that we just had to go again, and we got better seats this time! (Update: I wrote this post before I went to the show, but I’ve now gone to this concert and I can confirm that it was amazing!) Then on July 30th I’ll be going to see G-Dragon with Jesse (Books At Dawn)! This is my first ever K-POP live experience since I started listening to the genre not too long ago and I’m beyond excited! It’s going to be sick! Then on August 18th I’ll be going to see Green Day for the first time. They’re like the only band left that I still haven’t seen live from the list of bands I listened to as a teen and I can’t wait for all the nostalgia! And finally on September 7th, I’ll be going to see Lady Gaga! She’s another artist that my sister and I have had on our “need-to-see-live” list for quite a while now. I’m really excited for that one! As you can see, concerts alone are going to be taking up a few days here and there from now until early September.
In between all of that, I have a few other things that I will be taking part in/attending! The same day as the G-Dragon concert, a few of the Toronto book bloggers are going to be getting together for yet another Read Harder meeting where we’ll be talking about all of the books that we have read since the last time that we had met about a month ago! I always look forward to these meetings as I get to see everyone again and it’s always fun to talk about books! A few days later, I’ll be attending A Very Potter Party which is basically a big ol’ Harry Potter extravaganza and I can’t wait! I needed to attend at least one Harry Potter related event to celebrate the 20th anniversary!
Then at the end of August, right into the beginning of September, I’ll be attending Fan Expo Canada which is basically a slightly smaller San Diego Comicon type convention that happens in Toronto for four days! I usually get the 4 day pass and I’m thinking I may do that again this year! Also, the kids from Stranger Things are going to be there and I’m pretty excited about that! Then literally one day after the convention, I’ll be going to the Canadian National Exhibition which is basically one big carnival that takes place in Toronto near the lakeshore! I’ve been going on Labour Day since I was literally in my mother’s womb. No really, my mom was pregnant with me when the tradition started.
Oh, did you think I would be able to rest after that? Nope. After the CNE comes the Lady Gaga concert I mentioned above, but that’s not all. The Toronto International Film Festival kicks off that week and it will be my 4th year volunteering! I absolutely love being a part of this festival and it doesn’t hurt that we get to see a few films throughout the two weeks!
So as you can see, life is about to get a little hectic for me. In between all of these things, I’m trying to keep up with my reading, but I won’t lie…I’ve kind of hit a bit of a slump. Let’s hope I can get out of it soon!
Thank you for listening to me ramble on! Are you going to any concerts this summer or later this year? Do you have anything else exciting planned!?
As always, thank you for reading!
