La La Land 

by / May 4th, 2017 / Comments Off on La La Land 
We watched the recently made La La Land today in the film course I have been taking this semseter. I'd seen it once before in theaters, but I didn't like it as much the second time. When I first saw it, it was before the whole musical class had given me persepective on what scenes that film had been referencing. Let me tell you, La La Land references a lot of different material. It feels like this film was working off of a cheat sheet the entire time. Not that it makes this film bad, but it's just a disappointment. Learning can both illuminate and change your life. Keep that in mind, dear readers. 

Last Meal

by / May 4th, 2017 / Comments Off on Last Meal
At the moment I'm planning my last meal on campus. I'm sure this blog has seen more than enough of my "last of a given thing" posts, but this one is important to me. Meals are a sign of togetherness, bounty, health, and just general good times. Having one final meal is incredibly symbolic to me. Not only as an attendee of a catholic college, but as a person who feels connected to others though shared experiences. Eating at St. Scholastica is important. I can't even remember the number of times a meal here has not only fed my body, but my soul because of the connections eating has helped me foster with others. This last meal is dedicated to food and the people who gather around it.

Last Class

I'm attending my final classes ever this week. It's an extremely surreal feeling. I've been attending some form of school for my entire life. My entire life that I can remember anyway. Soon, I hope to never have to attend a graded class ever again. Honestly I hope I won't miss it, but it's impossible to tell. Wish me luck in these coming days. I'm going to prove that I deserve this degree, one way or another.

Finally it feels like spring is starting to set in here on campus. We've had many ups and downs in the weather this spring, but this week things are finally starting to stabalize. I think the consistency will do me some good, it means I can start planning ahead with my outfits and clothing. Mostly, it will mean I get a chance to study outside. While the outdoor study session is not often  great for productivity, it is excellent for my moral, and at this point, my moral needs all the help it can get. 

Study Area

One of the nice things that you gain by living on campus is access to dedicated study areas. Working at home is fine, but when I need to focus hard it's not always the best environment. My roommates, while being lovely people, are naturally distracting. If I lived off campus, I would have to go all the way to the public library for some peace and quiet, but the last thing I need is a study area that closes at 8. The study areas here on campus are always open and make for a great variety of different study spaces depending on how each student works best. In this time of finals, I rely on these quiet spaces more than ever to get to graduation.
