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 semester sure was a crazy one. There were ups and there
were downs. And even though the downs were pretty tough, many people were there
to support me. Because of this, I got to know many of my friends on a more
personal level and made many new friends.However, I am so unbelievably sad that I had to say goodbye to my senior
friends. Since I am going abroad next semester, I may never see some of them
again. I know I was eventually going to have to say goodbye, but I’m not ready.
I wish we could all stay in college forever!! I am thankful that two of my good
friends will be living in Burlington this summer and next year, so I may live
with them or, at least be able to see them. And as for my roommates, I am
obviously sad to leave them as well, but they’ll be living with me when I
return for senior year!
Before I left, my roommates and I took a group picture at
the antique shop on Church Street! It was so FUN! They let us run around the
shop and pick out all of our costumes! And th…
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
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…
