Friday night I saw the talented, Ricardo Arjona, a Guatemalan singer-songwriter, producer, and musician at the American Airlines Arena for his tour Viaje. Although I went in only knowing a couple of songs, I left a total fan. I knew him most for his love ballads but to my surprise his lyrics ranged from world peace to friendship. More than his lyrics, I was blown away by the musicality in all his songs. The drums and saxophone to be exact. I didn't catch a single empty seat in the audience. The arena was packed with elegant, hispanic middle aged couples and forty-year-old women holding signs that said, "Señora de las Cuatro Décadas", a love song about a woman in her forty's who doesn't need to show off her beauty to know she's beautiful. For this song, he chose a woman from the crowd and brought her on stage for a serenade. Overall, I was very impressed by the show. I mean, I probably should've expected it considering he has recorded fourteen studio albums, one live album, and forty-three singles.
If you couldn't make it to see the witty Jerome Allen "Jerry" Seinfeld this weekend, well, that sucks because he was great!!! (by the way, according to Jerry, "sucks" and "great" are the only adjectives Americans use *embarassed face*). I was sort of obligated by my boyfriend to attend this event even though I'm constantly called out for not laughing at supposedly "funny" things (again, *kinda embarassed face*). But this was good since Seinfeld's specialty is making fun of social obligation. To my surprise, I spent TWO HOURS laughing my a** off. Something I should've expected considering Jerry is one of the highest paid stand-up comedians and admits he's only doing it because he is bored with his life after his self-titled show, Seinfeld. I hardly know much about Jerry Seinfeld besides that his sitcom ended in the 90's. But I was surprised to find out Jerry actually got married at 45 and is now 60 with three kids. It was the best outing I had been to in a while. Definitely worth leaving the royalty of your bed for. If you are anything like me, oblivious to Seinfeld until this weekend, please do yourself a favor and watch EVERY stand-up video of his you can find. I promise you will not regret it.

make me excited and grateful for another day: music, travel, and people.
