Happy day everyone! Since it is now officially summer, my blogging duties for Butler University get a little breaky-break. Since this blog is through the Office of Admissions, and there is no school happening right now (quite obviously), my blogging duties are on hold until school starts up again. I know what you’re thinking…”WHAT? She’s done blogging for the whole summer?! How will I ever carry on without Bekah’s wit and insight three times a week?! Ohhh the humanity!!!!” Well, don’t fret my dear readers. I started up a blog specifically to keep up with during the summer so everyone is happy. You’re welcome.
Prior to keeping this blog this year, I never kept up with a blog for fun, just ones I had to make for school. Well, by golly I loved blogging so much that I decided to make a new blog to keep up with during the summer. I don’t have anything on there yet, but I am going to blog on there at least once a week, and I plan on posting any vlogs I do on there as well, so I’m not out of your lives yet. I will post the link below if you are interested in reading some more of my blog posts.
THE LINK TO MY BLOG IS RIGHT HERE. CLICK ME!
Thank you so very much for reading throughout this past school year, and feel free to scroll through and read all of my hilarious and inspiring (I’m like, really humble) posts from this year.
Have an A+ summer, and thanks for reading
Happy Monday all! Today at lunch, one of my friends started singing the song “Valerie,” and it inspired me to write about Amy Winehouse on this fine Music Monday.
Amy Winehouse was an English soul/R&B artist who became popular around 2007. She released her first album Back to Black in the UK in 2006, and from there, she became fairly popular. Winehouse won a Brit Award for Best British Female Artist in 2007, and was named 26 on VH1’s 100 Greatest Women in Music.
Besides being known for her voice, Winehouse was known for her petite frame, accompanied by her many tattoos, beehive hairdo, thick winged eyeliner, and alcohol abuse. Winehouse died in July of 2011 due to alcohol poisoning, joining a handful of other mega-talented musicians who died at the age of 27. After Winehouse’s death, Lioness: Hidden Treasures, a compilation of unreleased songs, was put on sale.
Amy Winehouse’s voice was incredibly soulful and powerful, and it is truly a shame that she died so young. She was super talented, and I am indeed a fan. Here are a few of my faves by her.
Have a great week and thanks for reading
