Plans for the school year include concerts, learning new things

Just like that it is the middle of August and it is back to school time. It is crazy how time just disappears. I remember my music teacher in elementary school telling our class how as you get older, time gets quicker and quicker. I can definitely agree with that already.  

I spent most of my summer working, I have never worked so much in my life. I typically did 40 hours a week which was interesting. Even though it could be strenuous at times and difficult having to go into work on hot summer days, it was also beneficial. Obviously, the paycheck was fantastic. It was also great to spend more time with my coworkers and get to know them more. Overall, it was very different to live the full-time job lifestyle. 

This summer I went on a miniature vacation to Kansas City to watch the Royals vs. Twins game. I went with a whole group of my family who mostly was rooting for the Royals, so of course, I had to root for the Twins, who ended up winning. I also chose the Twins because I have been to Minnesota for concerts a few times to see my favorite band, so it has a special place in my heart. While we were there, we went to this place called Top Golf, I was definitely not the best out of my family. Essentially, it is like golf but you stood in one spot and tried to aim at certain areas across the field. The technology is pretty incredible. It shows the speed and tracking of the ball and gives the score on a screen that each group had at their table. 

I also turned 19 years old in July, so I am officially an adult in the state of Nebraska. I also bought my first few scratch cards, I ended up losing money, but it was a fun experience. However, I did go gambling at Ohiya Casino a few times and won $160 once which makes up for my loss on a few scratch tickets. 

This semester seems like it is going to be completely different as a sophomore for me. Though I am excited to start fresh and see where this semester takes me. Change can sometimes be difficult for me, but I am going to embrace it all that I can. I am looking forward to learning new things within my major and outside of it. I am also planning on working more this semester than I did last year. Since it is my final year living at home, I am trying to save as much as possible. I also have some plans to go to a few concerts which I am very much looking forward to. I am seeing 5 Seconds of Summer in Minnesota in October again and in Wichita in November. I am also seeing the Jonas Brothers in Omaha in December. I am super excited to hear them play songs from my childhood and their new songs from their new album.
