We have come to the end of what probably felt like the shortest school week of the semester. Thanks to fall break I only had two days of classes. It is hard for me to reflect on what I did this week because most of it happened over break.
I attended my first concert at Crescent Ballroom on Monday night. There I saw the lovely ladies from Haim, an all girl rock band. The Haim girls are all sisters who have been practicing music their entire lives. Now, I’m not a huge concert person, I think the last time I went to one was a year ago when I saw Rodriguez, but I had a lot of fun.
Downtown Phoenix is up and coming, let me tell you. I’ve been spending a lot more time down there than usual because of a story I am working on for my magazine writing class. I am impressed by how much it has changed since I lived there freshman year. Either there is a lot more to do there or I am getting older and my tastes and interests are changing.
If you haven’t been downtown I suggest checking out Roosevelt Row. It is the Arts District of downtown Phoenix and it has a lot of character. Songbird Coffee is friendly and a great place to study and on certain Fridays there is food trucks and art festivals. Sometimes we get stuck in the Tempe bubble, but Phoenix has a lot to offer as well.
