Jesse McCartney's Still Got It

He shines in his latest concert performance.

Jesse McCartney's Still Got It

Last Saturday night, after spending 3 hours in line with 2,199 other fans, my childhood dreams finally came true. I saw Jesse McCartney in concert!

“I’ve been touring at colleges for the past 2 years because my most loyal fans are in college.”

Jesse performed classic songs like “Leavin’”, “She’s No You”, “How Do You Sleep?”, and “Beautiful Soul”, but he also performed some new music from his latest album, “In Technicolor”. He was very interactive with the crowd—throwing up the mic for us to shout out the lyrics. Seeing his fans having the time of their lives made him smile so hard. He hasn’t aged one bit from 18 to 30. He is a natural performer with flawless vocal chords and a flashy smile. He does this little dance (when he throws the mic up for us to sing) where he nods his head with a smirky smile.

“What do you think this is? College?”

After running off stage to grab a water, he comes back and starts drinking. The audience starts chanting “CHUG! CHUG! CHUG!” He throws out that little dad joke line.

You can see all over his face that he not only loves us, but he loves what he does. Performing is his passion, and he turns it into something fun rather than something stressful. He loves his management, and co-workers. He was just so grateful.

“What? Did I forget something?”

Towards the end of the concert, he pretends it’s over without singing the song that made him famous, “Beautiful Soul”. He comes back and starts singing and every voice in the auditorium was at volume max.

Jesse McCartney was one of the best concerts I’ve ever been to, and I would 10/10 recommend it to anyone and everyone.

McCartney’s still got it!!

Here are some tweets from myself and my best friend, during and after the concert:

@kallie_alexis: “THIRD ROW AT JESSE MCCARTNEY (emojis)”

@kallie_alexis: “SPOT THE KALLIE! OMG BEST NIGHT EVER!!! (emojis) @ Harding University”

@kallie_alexis: “I’m in love with this night…”

@kallie_alexis: “JESSE MCCARTNEY WAS AMAZING!!!”

@kallie_alexis: “I’M CRYING @ Harding University”

@jordyn_hensley: “Hearing Beautiful Soul live is something else. (emoji)”

@jordyn_hensley: “I have waited 12 years for this. My 6 year old dreams came true last night.”

@kallie_alexis: “I’d rather be at the Jesse McCartney concert right now”

@kallie_alexis: “lol I think my 6 year old self has intertwined with my 19 year old self… I’m fangirling over In Technicolor”

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

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.
