My computer charger is broken so this will be a very short post, as I only have a few minutes left on my battery before I have to go track down someone with a charger.
REALLY exciting things in the future:
•This Sunday I’ll be playing with my band at Yardfest, the big outdoor festival that Harvard hosts every year. We (The Nostalgics) are opening for 3LAU, Das Racist, and The Cataracs, which will be terribly fun and tiring!
•Next Tuesday I’ll be going to the University of LaVerne in LA to compete nationally with the Harvard CUPSI Poetry Slam Team! We weren’t sure if it would happen, but it really is! Check out our website here for more information.
•I’m currently finishing all of my forms for my Study Abroad Program in Paris, France this summer. This is also 100% happening and it is so exciting. I cannot wait to post about my experience this summer!
Okay my computer is going to die, I shall post some more later!
A few hours later…
I’m back! (Surprise.) Anyways what would I like to talk about? (Please feel free to comment with questions or requests for things you’re interested in, wondering about, etc.) This past week has been chock-full of rehearsals for CUPSI and for YardFest, so I’ve been doing a lot of memorizing and having late-night rehearsals; that’s one thing that’s incredibly different from high school, where none of my activities went later than 9pm, and I fell asleep around 10:30. It is odd to think back to the days where 11pm was really late, whereas now I’m still working/singing/slamming around that hour.
Speaking of high school, my two friends who have been living out west are coming to visit me in a week! They’re driving across the country and will be stopping in Boston around the time that Reading Period starts, then they’ll continue home. It’s a shame that I won’t be back to hang out with them for the month of May, but May really isn’t summer in Vermont, and I’m going to have to work very hard during that time so that I have spending money for France and funds to rent (NOT buy) textbooks. Yay, Dorm Crew and Reunion Jobs! I’d recommend doing Dorm Crew for pre-orientation, because you can start out with a lot of money, some friends, and a really good sense of campus. (However, the other pre-orientation activities are pretty cool…but if you’re worried about money at all, Dorm Crew is the way to go.)
This upcoming weekend, I’ll be taking some pictures for The Crimson of the women’s Lacrosse Game. They’ve been doing much better than normal, which is exciting to watch, and makes me want to play lacrosse again! I played lax and field hockey in high school, and was active in a lot of clubs, music, and theater, which I think is the reason I got in here. (All colleges are looking for someone who fits the bill, and they knew I was prepared for this business.) Anyways, I will also be preparing the Reunion, Commencement, and Year-in-Review newspapers for The Crimson during the month of May, so I can chill with my photofriends. (YEAH!) Now all I have to do is make it through exams…ergh. Being gone next week isn’t going to ease the pain of taking exams and boosting my grade, to say the least.
Hope all is well, happy rainy Thursday!
