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…
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…
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!!
