TomorrowWorld 2014 Wrap Up

A weekend full of costumes, lights, and EDM.

TomorrowWorld 2014 Wrap Up

This weekend, on the campgrounds where Counterpoint Festival used to be held in Atlanta, a wild EDM festival went down. Three days and four nights of electronic insanity occurred, and I'm here to give you a wrap of everything that happened.  

Day one (Thursday) was low-key as those who had three-day passes began to show up to set up their campsites in Dreamville, preparing for the big opening day on Friday.  

Friday began with a few smaller acts, and by the early afternoon artists like Cazzette and Matt Zo took the main stage. By the time the sun was down and the light show took over the night sky, A-Trak and Nicky Romero began the long list of A-list electronic performers on that night as well as the rest of the weekend. To close out Friday night, Tiesto and Bassnectar, two high profile names, finished day one in style.

Day two was highlighted by the Mad Decent Stage, for artist's signed to Diplo's Mad Decent Record Company where Diplo also performed at the end of the night. And at the main stage, big acts like Steve Aoki, Dmitri Vegas and Skrillex held the spotlight. While it may all sound the same to someone who doesn't listen to house, EDM, dubstep, or trance, TomorrowWorld and their five stages really showcase all of the different genres of electronic/dance music.  

As Day three rolled around, after two days of great acts, it would seem like there would be no way for Sunday to even compare.  But with the acts lined up for Sunday, day three would have no issue holding its own.  Between upcoming artists like The Chainsmokers and Keys N' Krates, and veterans like Martin Garrix, David Guetta & Kaskade, there was plenty to hear and see on the final evening of the festival.  

Overall, whether you listen to electronic music or not, TomorrowWorld was a spectacle that no one should miss.  Even if you don't like the music, the experience and the people watching alone could keep one entertained, maybe not for a whole weekend but at least for a whole day. 

The stages, lights and fireworks also are something worth seeing. If you're looking for a life experience that you will never be able to duplicate, this is the one for you. As TomorrowWorld's motto says, "Today is a gift" and as I will reiterate, being a part of this festival is a gift as well. LSU is on the horizon and you all better be ready to kick those Tigers back to Baton Rouge.

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.

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.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
