Mardi Gras

Today was Mardi Gras and it was a lot of fun! Unfortunately I was not able to go to New Orleans but I was able to go to the Mardi Gras event held in Resco. Last year I couldn’t go because I was busy but this year I was able to attend! There was so much food! They had Yats, candy, and King Cake. I’ve never had King Cake before so that was exciting to try and it was delicious!

There were many activities too! There was mask decorating, caricatures, and psychic readings. I was able to decorate a mask but I was too scared to go to the psychic for the fear of her telling me that I was going to die in like five minutes. Luckily, I didn’t! I ended my Mardi Gras night with photos in the photo booth and needless to say I’m surprised I didn’t break the booth with all the photos I took! I can’t wait to attend again next year!

Waiting in line for food!!

Super Bowl Prediction

The Super Bowl is this Sunday and commentators and analysts have been giving their two cents on who they believe will win. While their predictions may be based on sports knowledge and facts, my prediction, however, is based on random things and which team’s colors I like best. That being said, here are my five reasons why I predict the Baltimore Ravens will win the Super Bowl this year:

1. Their colors are purple and black, which are much cooler than San Francisco’s red and gold!

2. Baltimore is on the East Coast and clearly, as established by Jay Z, the East Coast is clearly superior to the West Coast.

3. Baltimore is the only team I knew for certain was in the Super Bowl until I looked up who their opponent was a few minutes ago.

4. Red and gold are my high school’s colors as well…. *Shudders*

5.  San Francisco is where the show “That’s So Raven” took place which was like my favorite show and now it doesn’t air anymore so the city reminds me of sadness. :(

Music Monday: Beyonce Part 2

As previously documented, Beyoncé is the reason why I wake up in the mornings. Also, since she is the Super Bowl Halftime performer, I thought it would be appropriate to make her the Music Monday selection for today. I’ve been listening to her music all week to prepare for the festivities on Sunday and let’s just say that she’s the only reason I’m watching the Super Bowl at all this year.

The video I decided to pick is for “Upgrade U,” which is one of my favorite songs/videos by her. Not only is she so beautiful in it, but it’s a catchy song! My favorite parts of the video are at the beginning with the baby aligator and toward the end when she imitates Jay Z. Now all I can do now is wonder what songs she’ll perform at the Super Bowl. HOPEFULLY it’s a new one!
