MOMENTS OF THE WEEK

Happy Halloween!
This past weekend was super fun! There were many festive on campus activities to take part of during the week and on the weekend! I made my own costume Friday night and I could not have been more excited. It seems weird, but since last summer I knew exactly what I wanted to be… A Wacky Inflatable Arm Flailing Tube Man! Yes. I was one of those waving things you see at car dealerships. And, yes, I flailed and waved all night long. I actually got so into it, that I cannot move my neck now because I gave myself whiplash. L
Anyway, here’s how I made it! First, I bought two pop-up hampers from Amazon. I cut off the bottom of one of them so I could fit inside both hampers when standing up.

MCCARTHY ARTS CENTER

Saint Michael's theater is called McCarthy Arts Center. Here, many plays are put on, but also music and other performances. Upstairs you will find solo practice rooms! Each equipped with a piano! Currently, I am teaching myself guitar as well as piano. This is a great place to come to practice! Also, another fact, is that you can take lessons with a music professor here, for credit!!

This week I went apple picking twice!  One time was with my mentoring program, Dream, and the other was actually part of my job!  Anyway, Chapin Orchards is a beautiful orchard right in Essex Vermont.  They have pumpkins, cider, donuts, and millions of apples!  It's a great place to pick apples with friends or family while enjoying the amazing view!

It’s that time of the year when almost EVERYONE is sick with a cold. I blame my roommate Emily for getting me sick. Now I feel like the baby in this GIF. I can’t stop sneezing and all I want to do is sleep, but I can’t because I have so many things to do.
