Hi everyone! So, to be honest this is my very first blog I have ever written in my life, so please bear with me!

Just as a little introduction to myself, I am a junior here at UND majoring in Communications and Recreation and Tourism.  I enjoy spending time with friends and family, doing anything outdoors, and reading.

Anyways, this past Friday I went to the Taylor Swift concert in Fargo, ND and I thought I would share a little bit about my experience there because I had such a great time.  First off, let me explain that I have been a huge Tswift fan ever since she came out with “Tim McGraw”, her very first song so going to the concert was very exciting for me. This was hands down, for sure the best concert I have ever been too and I would highly recommend everyone else to check it out. Even if you are not a huge fan of her, anyone would appreciate how entertaining the show was.  Taylor did costume changes between almost every song and the staging set-up would change as well. Almost each time she sang a new song, it felt as though you were actually in a new place because of the scene changes.  Most songs she played were from her latest album, Red, which was the only thing slightly disappointing.  Now don’t get me wrong, Red is a good album but I love her first two albums more and would have liked to have heard some of her old stuff.  Overall, it was a really great concert even though I was surrounded by many young girls jumping and screaming at the top of their lungs, but I got to admit, my voice was a little sore by the end of the night too! ; )
