Every day, I make a list of all of the things I need to accomplish. It’s actually one of my favorite kill-time-in-class activities… I use many bright colored pens and markers. This past week, I found that I only accomplished about 10% of the things on my list, despite the fact that I felt I was moving a million miles per hour. I guess the main reason for that was the dance show. Yes, all of those hours of rehearsal finally paid off!! The beginning of the week was super stressful… we had rehearsal starting at 8 pm every night, which pretty much killed my homework block, and we were trying to put together our Senior Spotlight at the last minute. Despite all of my flipping out (I’m really good at that), everything came together incredibly well!!! Here are pictures from two of my dances:
It’s really a bittersweet experience. At the end of the week, you’re like, wow, I have time to do stuff again! I can do homework, exist outside of the gym, see my housemates! But at the same time, the show was so much fun. You work so hard on the dances, so it’s hard to accept that it’s over. Also, the crowds were amazing. My friends were outrageously loud on Saturday night… in fact, they missed the majority of our Senior Spotlight (Single Ladies dance, yeah!) because they were so busy dancing themselves. Classic. So yeah… overall, not a productive week on too many fronts, but it was a great time.
And now I am back to my normal schedule. Monday, I returned to my library chair to work on my big final paper for history. I’m writing it on Coney Island, which is pretty interesting. I came into St. Mary’s thinking that I would focus on American history… but somehow, I fell into Latin American and African. Based on that, I’m glad that I get to write about American history for this paper. I mean really, it’s on an amusement park. Can’t be too bad, right??? (We’ll see in two weeks when it’s due. Yikes)
So speaking of total nerdness, I was inducted into Phi Beta Kappa last night. It’s actually a really big honor, and I felt pretty special. I do have to admit, though, that I really felt like I was in Harry Potter. The ceremony was at the State House in Historic St. Mary’s… so basically, a big old brick building from the beginning of time. We were all in our black graduation robes, with various faculty members in their colored regalia. One of the professors, and I am so serious when I say this, looked just like Dumbledore in his Harvard garb with his white beard. I could not stop giggling to myself about it. Probably I should not admit that to anyone… but really, it was quite amusing.
Alright, time to get to that work I’ve been putting off. I’m going home this weekend for Easter, and I have a paper due Sunday. Therefore, time to write!!!!
