Where Has A Black Girl Blogging Been?

Hey y’all! Long time no see! It’s me, Tandra, finally back from a two month break from blogging. It happens to the best of us. School’s been kicking my butt, but I’m excited to be getting up some new stuff. I’m sure you’ve been missing my content, so what better way to explain what I’ve been up to these past few months than with a blog post?

Where Has A Black Girl Blogging Been?

Seeing AWOLNATION

Late February I had the honor of meeting and seeing AWOLNATION live for the first time in concert in Atlanta. I’m no stranger to concerts–I’ve seen One Direction and Niall Horan before–but this was my first concert I went TOTALLY by myself.

If you’re unfamiliar with them, two of their biggest hits are Sail and Run, both of which have been the subject of vines for years. They released their most recent album, Here Come the Runts, early February, and I can honestly say that it is the first album where I did not dislike a single song on there.

I had extra money, plenty of time, so I said why the hell not go and meet them? And meet them I did.

Meeting Aaron, Issac, Zach and Daniel was so exciting and got me even more hyped for the concert–which I enjoyed immensely. So much so, I’m planning to go see them again in Knoxville, TN towards the end of the month (fingers crossed).

Getting my littles

Another exciting thing that happened to me while I was gone was receiving my littles in my sorority, Delta Phi Epsilon. I’m a member of the Gamma Omicron chapter and was excited to get them.

My littles I received this spring.

For those of you unfamiliar with anything related to Greek life, at a certain point in the New Member process in Panhellenic sororities, New Members will receive a “Big Sister”, aka big, which will help guide them on the journey to becoming a sister. A big is an older sister in the chapter who is knowledgeable about the sorority and Greek life in general.

Most people only have one big and one little, but in my case I got two littles! They’re great and awesome and compliment me so well. I’m so lucky to have them!

Attending my first convention

Ask anybody around me and you’d find out that I’m kind of a nerd. Whether that is debating the saddest death on The Walking Dead (RIP Glenn) or cheering for my favorite Game of Thrones ship (It’s Jon and Dany, just in case you were wondering), it’s no secret that I’m a fan of nerdy things. With that being said, I had never been to my first fan convention for anything until this February.

I attended the first annual Savannah Comic Con and really got in touch with my nerdy side. I bought stickers, buttons and even managed to catch the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles before they disappeared back down into the sewer!

I’ve already made plans to go to Atlanta Comic Con in July and maybe even DragonCon in September. Even if you don’t think that comic/anime/etc. conventions are your kind of thing, I totally recommend checking out one anyway. You never know what you’ll end up liking!

Becoming a senior in college

Finally, I’ve become a senior in college. My four year journey at Georgia Southern is almost over and I really can’t believe it. I’ve done so many things in college I thought I would never do and I can’t wait to make even more memories my senior year!

 

Well that’s all for now. I’m back and better than ever. I’ve got a lot of exciting things planned for you all so make sure you stick around and see!

 

Until next time,
