MOMENTS OF THE WEEK

I cannot wait to go home for Thanksgiving tomorrow! I have not been home since I got to school, so this mini vacation is much needed. I am kind of bummed that my friends and I here didn’t do a friends-giving. However, we will do a big friend dinner before winter break!
Friday night was the return of Turtle Underground after Jib Fest! Turtle Underground is basically a club/music venue where all of the rock/regge bands from Saint Mike’s play. It used to be in the basement of a North Campus building called Purtil Hall. However, with the construction of the new building, Purtil and the other dorms on North Campus were closed. On Friday, Turtle Underground occurred in Eddies Lounge. Sead, Seven Leaves, and Cosmosis Jones played! Everyone was jamming and having a blast! I am so happy that they found a new location for Turtle! And now, even more people can enjoy it because it is on main campus!

Today is Jib Fest! This means the Ski and Ride club here at Saint Mike’s, creates ramps and brings in snow machines to the 300’s field. Then different competitors try to perform tricks as they go down, hoping they don't fall. This festival has been a tradition for a long time. So, since there is no snow and the weather is pretty nice, people participating will be wearing T-shirts! Basically everyone who wants to can participate! And if you just want to watch and buy raffle tickets to win really cool stuff you can do that too!
Here are a few pictures I took from the crowd!

The Saint Mike’s drama club presented a devised play called Ophelia this weekend. The members of the cast wrote the play in its entirety and then directed it within two months! This play was based on Hamlet, but focused on Ophelia. It was set in a modern time period and three new characters were added. It had humor and suspense. I enjoyed seeing the performance and was especially interested in the use of lighting and a projector! As a self proclaimed Shakespeare nerd, however, I wish that they had spoken in iambic pentameter. That would have made me happier!
This week my dad and brother came up to visit! My brother, Kristopher, was here to attend open house at University of Vermont and take a tour at Saint Mikes as well! And, I obviously took them for a hike on Friday! I cannot believe I hiked Stowe 3 times this semester, but anyway, I even skipped class to do it! Though it was a bit windy and snowy at the top, it was a beautiful view. Kristopher had never been on a real hike beforeha…

This week was really stressful for me. My workload was pretty heavy. Besides reading and starting a research paper, I had to attend court and certain other meetings in order to do a project for my media law class. I also attended the performance of Macbeth at the Flynn for my Shakespeare class!
Friday my best friend Emily from back home came to visit me! Her visit was the PERFECT stress releaser. I haven’t gone home to New Jersey since I have been at school this semester and no one has come up to visit. Thus, seeing someone from home was much needed! Saturday morning we drove to Stowe Pinnacle to hike! Originally I thought the weather was going to be bad, but it ended up being a beautiful day! Thought it was a bit muddy, it was not too windy or cold. There were many cute dogs accompanying people on their hikes. Two even wore small coats!Once we got to the top, it was surprisingly very clear and obviously very beautiful! Emily and I took some pictures and had a snack before climbing b…

The newest addition to the Saint Michael's campus is our little library! About a week ago, this cute little box was built and added to our campus. Located next to the Word Garden, this colorful box is full of books that you can take freely! All you have to do is leave a book in its place. I think this is a great way for people to find new and interesting books to read. And if it is a nice day, you can sit around the word garden and read!
