The Formation World Tour Had My Mouth Drop Numerous Times

It was finally the time I thought I would never get the chance to do. It was time to see the queen, Beyoncé. I go to many concerts and Beyonce is an artist that I have always wanted to go see and it was finally happening. The Formation World Tour in Tampa was her second stop on the tour and I had no idea quite what to expect. I had creeped social media the night of her first show to see what I can expect, but nothing prepared me for what I was about to see. The concert was extremely visual, just like "Lemonade," and my mind was blown. Let me just do a quick recap of all the elements that were brought out for this concert.

The Screen

Now most artists of course have a few screens on stage and above it so everyone can see the performers better, but Beyoncé needed more. The screen on stage was massive, and that word does no justice for it. It was by far the most intense screen I had ever seen, not to mention that she also had two smaller screens beside it. The concert started and the screen rotated a full 360 degrees. Like okay Bey. Just take a look to how large the screen is compared to her on stage.

Fire

Queen Bey threw me a curveball when legit fireballs came out of the stage from above. This was a definite moment when my mouth dropped because I honestly wasn’t expecting it, but I mean it’s Beyoncé so why wouldn’t she light the sky up with flames. Also, the fire was used for “Run The World (Girls)” which fit perfectly.

Water

Just when you thought Bey couldn’t think of anything else she brings out the big guns. And by guns I mean water. Beyoncé's stage filled up with a pool of water and Bey and her backup dancers marched to it. I couldn’t describe it more than when a fan behind me said. “Oh Bey is about to baptize someone.” And she basically did. Beyonce belted “Freedom” and her dancers danced through the water and baptized at least the rows around them. Beyonce also threw in “Survivor” where I literally lost everything. Watching it was incredible.

Confetti

Beyonce delivered once more when all of a sudden confetti literally rained throughout the stadium once “Party” started. The moment was beyond fitting and made the song that much more enjoyable to embrace. Did I try to catch confetti for a personal memento? Of course I did.

Fireworks

Beyonce couldn’t end a show without fireworks. Fireworks shot off while she sang “Halo” beautifully. The ending of the concert was the most magical moment because it all fit together so well. Beyonce knew how to create a visual tour and she delivered nothing but the best. If you don’t have tickets, I would find some immediately.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
