Spring Break is Coming!

Was in Syracuse last night for the John Mayer winter tour. It was about an hour’s drive and Syracuse looks like a really nice city. Defo livelier than Ithaca. My heart skipped a beat as we approached the city and saw the lights getting brighter. That’s what Ithaca does to a city dweller.

Matt Kearney was the opening act for John Mayer. The American concert culture is really an eye-opener though. It’s just like going to the cinema; they sell popcorn, candy floss, hot dogs and beer at the door. OK, that at a baseball game, totally understandable. But it was rather unfamiliar for me to see that at an indoor concert.

After the opening act, there was a 15-minute delay because the crew were setting up John Mayer’s guitars on stage. When John Mayer finally started, it was almost 9 PM. He was fantastic! He sings really well live and those guitar runs left me in awe. The light effects were also very nice.

The bridge that connects South Hill to the Commons is going to be rebuilt in a project that will take nine months to complete. So no more walking to the Commons unless I’m up for a detour. Work on the bridge starts on Monday, which is also my 23rd birthday.

    yup i’m heading to europe. just booked my tickets last night. i was originally planning on going to the caribbean with the swedish girls but it was way over my budget. london/paris wasn’t as expensive as i assumed so that’s where i’m headed. plus my cousin will meet me in liverpool, so that’s cool.
