Pretty recently, I went to a Saint Motel concert with 2 of my really good friends. It was such an awesome night at an amazing venue. This was the first concert I'd been to in years so I had no idea of what to expect, but looking back I'm glad I didn't have any expectations, I was just there to be there. Like I said, great night. Anyways, as any person would after a concert, I immediately decided I needed to listen to everything this band had ever released (it's a pretty fair undertaking, I'll let you know when I accomplish it) so I added the station Saint Motel Radio to my Pandora account. For those who don't know, Pandora.com is an online music streaming platform that uses your "likes" to customize a station just for you (for free!) I've already heard a ton of amazing songs on this station that are creative and lilting and rhythmic and beautiful. I'm obsessed. Here are some of the new artists and songs that I've heard:
Artist: Saint Motel (duh...)
Elle's Favorites: Sweet Talk, Born Again, You Can Be You (I could honestly list the whole album)
Artist: Foster the People
Elle's Favorites: Sit Next To Me, Doing It For The Money
Artist: Declan McKenna
Elle's Favorites: Brazil, Why Do You Feel So Down
Elle's Favorites: Not Too Late, Closer

Yesterday I was eating dinner with my friend and we started talking about quantum physics. Casual, I know. In an attempt to explain it to my not-primed-for-physics brain, she tried to describe an experiment which quantum physicists created to examine how light behaves. Notice I said tried... I definetly was not getting it. But later that night she sent me a video featuring Dr. Quantum, renowned animated physicist.
Essentially, Dr. Quantum explained that light only behaves a certain way when it is observed. Think "if a tree falls in the forest and nobody hears it, did it really make a sound?"
Quick side-note: I forgot how that phrase was worded and googled it. Guess what it relates to... QUANTUM THEORY. WHATTT?
I honestly still cannot wrap my head around this. I have so many questions too:
