Patience

Saturday, December 10th, 2016

Life.. is.. a beautiful thing. We often trot through life wishing for the next day, hoping time will pass by more quickly, or begging the universe for change. Ages ago I decided I was done with that. I chose to stop waiting for tomorrow, and, instead, I set off on journey to live my life to the very fullest at every single moment of my existence. However, I have had a bit of a breakdown as of late or, to be more specific, as of Thursday. I woke up anxious. I had to perform. Thoughts of it blatantly crossed my mind over and over. The closer I got to my final performance, the more nervous I became. But, we did it. I did it. We succeeded. I succeeded. We thrived. I thrived. And, I believe we all passed with flying colors. Then, we were done, and I realized that the work I left in that classroom studio was priceless. I dumped every bit of effort I had into that one performance, every last bit of undergraduate energy I had left in me. My last round of finals were over with. Sure, I had a field trip Friday morning, my last class period, but I had already submitted my final assessment. I had finished my work as an undergraduate college student. I realized I was done.

Hedda

Saturday, December 10th, 2016

It seems as though my heart has fallen even further into love with theatre once again. Tonight, I was lucky enough to obtain a complimentary ticket to a sold out show, not to mention the final showing, of Hedda at the Platform Theatre in the University of the Arts London. It felt meant to be, my being there. The performance was brilliant, and the reimagined version of the Henrik Ibsen classic Hedda Gabler was fascinating. I’ve not read the original, but I have worked with Ibsen text previously. I truly fancy his writing. It is human life, conversation, experience. It is real. And, the script performed at UAL, a 21-st century version, held true to the ever so known and historical realism of Ibsen’s time. Another point of my evening was to finally see UAL’s Central Saint Martin’s campus with my own eyes. I was worried this might happen, but I fell in love. I could picture myself studying, working, playing in the theatre, wandering the space there. Pursuing a MA in Acting is a dream I have, and the Drama Centre London at UAL has been on my radar since before I moved to London. After being there, tonight, seeing the show, walking on the campus, and experiencing the brilliant vibes, I felt at home. The future cannot be known to any, but I do know that I can choose to follow my dreams.

Why I’m Thankful for Undergrad

Thursday, November 24th, 2016

Happy Thanksgiving! I am excited to announce that it is November and I have still been keeping up with my new years resolution: to write down one thing that I am thankful for every day. As it is Thanksgiving however, I thought I should do something a little extra on this day of being grateful and make a blog post about all of the reasons I am thankful for getting my undergraduate degree here at St. Scholastica.

This World is Human

Thursday, November 24th, 2016

There is something truly special about wandering the world. The amount of knowledge, perspective, and acceptance you gain is simply hard to fathom. It is infinite. I already feel changed. I have met people from many different countries, carried out conversations with them, and been shown what it means to be human. We are all one. We are all special. And, we all have something to give to this world. My study abroad experience has been nothing short of extraordinary. This journey has surpassed all of my beliefs and expectations. I am fully moved by this experience. I am forever changed. I am forever connected to the furthest corners of the world, with friends from New Zealand, Holland, Sweden, and beyond. And, I am forever filled with wanderlust, a need for diversity, and a desire to continue opening my mind to the wide world of difference around me. What I have realized, is that no matter how different, how odd, or how quirky we are as individuals or as an entire culture, in the end, we are only human. We are all human. And, we are one.
