Dominican University students are some of the hardest working students I have ever seen. I personally can attest to always being on the go, whether its going to work or school. With that being said, I think every now and then we all need a pop culture pause.
What’s a pop culture pause?
Well, for me, pop culture serves as my getaway from reality. Whenever I am stressed or need a break from work or school, I can always count on pop culture to serve as a momentary distraction. A pop culture pause allows you to escape your own head and see what is going on in the world of celebrities, politics, or sports.
Music specifically is my own personal outlet, and with finals rapidly approaching, I definitely need a pop culture pause. One thing that I am looking forward to are those summer concerts as my own personal pop culture pause.
Two concerts that I am super excited to attend are the Beyonce Formation and Rihanna Anti-World tours. I thought that I would have to choose between the two, but fortunately I’ll be able to attend both.
However, if you aren’t interested in Beyonce or Rihanna, there are other artist who will be visiting the city of Chicago this summer, such as Coldplay and Ellie Goulding. If you are more of a music festival lover, Lollapalooza will be taking place at the end of July. Here you will be able to see and listen to various artist who offer a variety of sounds.
I know I am super excited to get started with concert season especially once finals are over with. Then I’ll be on a never-ending pop culture pause.
