Last night was the Grammys on CBS and, since none of my favorite artists were performing, I kept watching on and off while doing homework. The show was ok and had a couple of noteworthy highlights. For me, the best performances were from Justin Timberlake and Maroon 5 & Alicia Keys. My favorite presenters were Beyoncé (obviously) and Ellen Degeneres.
There were a couple of surprises in terms of winners for awards. I was surprised Frank Ocean did not win Album of the Year. I was also surprised to see Adele still snatching in some awards after she dominated last year. The awards show this year made me anticipate the show next year since there will be more artists I like/know in attendance so I can’t wait!
The performance of the night.

Beyoncé won the Super Bowl this year.
Instead of watching the Puppy Bowl this year, I decided to watch the real version. Only because Beyoncé was the halftime performer. I would also like to point out the fact that I correctly chose the winner of the game which means I’m on a two year win streak on choosing the winner of the Super Bowl. Maybe I should try to make money off of my talent in the future.
Now on to the performance… I thought it was great! Beyoncé looked spectacular, the song choices were great, and Destiny’s Child reunited! I was only disappointed in the fact that she did not sing a new song but the performance was still great nonetheless! She is supposed to be attending the Grammys this upcoming Sunday so hopefully she will be making a surprise performance with a brand new song! It’ll make my life complete.

Today is Valentine’s Day and I was pleasantly surprised that as soon as I walked into Jordan Hall, there was a girl handing out Valentine’s Day cards and candy. It definitely made my morning. I really needed the sugar because I was so tired. I didn’t even get to stop by Starbucks before class like I usually do!
In my Civil War FYS class we are now reading “For Cause and Comrades” by James M. McPherson. I haven’t started reading it yet but I will tonight and give my opinion. It’s shorter than the last book we read so I kind of like it already.
I did not get to watch the Grammys yesterday unfortunately. I did get to catch Lady Gaga’s performance, which I actually thought was kind of boring. I’m an ardent fan and even I was left a little disappointed with her new song “Born This Way.”
That’s all for today! Feel free to leave a comment and thanks for visiting!
Happy Valentine’s Day!
