The actual concert itself was so good! Believe you me, I am not someone who EVER listens to gospel music and I loved this concert, so don't cross it off your list because of the genre. Only a few of the songs were sung in English, but it didn't matter that I didn't understand the words--their voices were just so powerful and beautiful that I was blown away. The Soweto Gospel Choir has been together since 2002 and was a favorite of the late Nelson Mandela. Actually, this Grammy-award winning group even performed at Mandela's funeral.
I thanked my professor again and again for arranging everything and for inviting us and told her that I don't have that much time to have fun anymore because I work too much. Her response was, "Lisa, that really is pathetic." Haha...It really is!!
This week I've also been reading a lot of The Forever Girl by Alexander McCall Smith, a book that I won in Goodreads giveaway. I will probably do a full review later when I'm done reading the whole thing, but I'm over halfway in and I'm addicted. The story is all about love...falling in and out of love, first loves, and unrequited love. The story follows a mother who has fallen out of love with her husband and in love with another man, and it also focuses on her daughter, Clover, who falls deeply in love with her childhood friend. This book gave me a lot to think about and I have about 10 quotes I'd like to add to my quote book from this novel!
This past week, I've also been texting and getting to know Nancy @ Neatly-Packaged. It's a lot of fun! Nancy was kind enough to volunteer to be my partner for the mug swap that's going on right now since the girl that was assigned to be my partner never responded to me.
