So Long, Goodbye

What a Bittersweet Symphony it has been blogging for you. It’s been interesting and whatnot, but it’s that time of year… The semester is wrapping up and I’m not Wrapped Up In You enough to continue blogging, though it has been a great experience.

For those of you graduating…. I hope you learned a lot here at Purdue. I’m sure those friends you made, you know, the life-long ones, the “Friends Forever,” will miss you, but you’ll keep in touch. After all, you’ve had The Time of Your Life with these friends!

Okay, I have to stop now. Listening to all of these songs is making the end of the semester seem that much more real. I’ve made some amazing friends who are graduating this semester and I can’t imagine next year without them. I’m sure some of you feel the same.

Regardless, I hope you had a good time following my blog, maybe even learned a few things, or laughed at my subtle, yet obviously hilarious humor. (I’m so modest.) Good luck during finals week, good luck with jobs, internships, vacations, and anything else you may be doing this summer. I hope you gained some new perspectives after viewing my opinions and listening to some songs.

You’re probably thinking…. “Thank the lord, we’re done with all of her obsessive music posts and opinions.” But let’s be honest with each other here, When I’m Gone… You’re going to miss me. (And if you’re wondering, yes, I can do the cup trick.)


Remember, you can use music as your escape when you need a little break from the real world. 

So Long, Goodbye. 


Coming to you this summer…

If you’re like me, you’ll be staying around campus or heading to an internship near a big city. Will you get bored and need some entertainment? Possibly. Lucky for you, I’m in the same boat. The only difference is that I have a paddle, and I’m willing to share it with you.

If you’re staying near campus there are PLENTY of things to do, many of which have to do with musical events. The Lafayette/West Lafayette has this wonderful page of events for you to look at for local things. The page allows you to input different dates that you’re looking for events (not only concerts, but many other things as well). It then generates a page of events with details, times, prices, etc. It’s pretty niffy.

Not more than two hours from campus is the wonderful capital of Indiana. Indianapolis also has a nice line up concerts for us this summer. Live nation is a great website to find concerts and ticket prices. Just input the city, Indianapolis, or where ever else you may be and a list of concerts and dates will be just within your reach. The Klipsch Music Center in Noblesville, IN also has a great line up of concerts for us.

If you’re feeling like taking a little road trip, maybe crossing the state line into Illinois, Chicago also has some great concerts in store for us this summer. You can look up the different events taking place or a different line up of concerts. 

The best thing about these sites and cities is that there are a wide variety of musicians and bands playing at each throughout the entire summer. There is literally something for everyone to enjoy. So take advantage of these wonderful opportunities and check out a concert of festival this summer.
