Like almost every other twentysomething black woman in Metro Detroit, I attended the Beyonce concert this week. But unlike those other women, I wouldn’t say that my experience was flawless. Now this has nothing at all to do with Queen Bey, she herself was flawless. But while I was there I realized five things:
I like the summer, I really do, but to me, fall is the best. The leaves change colors, fresh apple cider is everywhere and all my favorite television shows come back. Now I'm a HUGE fan of binge watching my favorite show but there is something to be said about the ritual of watching a show week after week. The intensity of episodes don't get a chance to resonate and cliffhangers just don't land the same way when you binge watch. So despite the case studies that suggest a 20-something no longer wishes to watch live television, I'm looking forward to the fall lineup.
I'm lucky to have a job that allows me to travel around the country to places I never would have thought to have gone on my own. But all the work travel made me miss traveling just for fun. I decided last year that no matter what I was going to make it to Europe and luckily one week later, a chance came my way. A program through my school allowed MBA students to experience culture and business practices in several European countries, so of course I signed up. All I had to do is write a paper and get class credit, it was a no brainer!
