Study Abroad Part II

| WMU

Hey, all you Broncos! Guess who is studying abroad…again? THIS GIRL. I will be travelling to Austria for a six-week opera program! Gotta brush up on some German, because I’m going to be there for awhile. While I’m there, I will have private lessons with some really cool professionals, master classes, lessons on lessons on…

For when you’re running late…

| WMU

Good morning, sleepy Broncos! So, in honor of me waking up late this morning, I will share with you a fabulous buzzfeed article I found! Sorry short-haired Broncos, it’s geared toward the Broncos with long luscious locks…but what do I know? Your hair might be longer and more luscious than mine. SO! When you wake…

Staged Reading! This Friday!

| WMU

Hi, Broncos? Are you bored on your Friday afternoons? Have nothing to do? Falling into the Friday slump? Well, look no further for your Friday entertainment! This Friday at 2pm in the Gilmore Theatre Complex is an event that has never happened before. Something so daring, so brave, so provocative I might say, it might…

KING STAG: An Excuse to Play with Puppets

| WMU

Hello, Broncos! I am here to shamelessly plug the next show I will be in: King Stag! It is a whimsical fairy tale about the land of Serendippo, where King Deramo is searching for his wife. The evil adviser Tartaglia stands in his way as animals and humans intermingle in a beautiful story where good…

How to Battle the Cold

| WMU

Hello, my frigid Broncos! Many of you lucky ones are on a Spring Break vacation to somewhere tropical — sandy beaches, warm sun, I’m going to hate all of you for coming back with a beautiful tan. But for a few of us, we are still here in snowy, cold Kalamazoo. As I walked to…

Midterm Survival Guide

| WMU

Hello, my studious Broncos! So, midterms have already started/are happening within this coming week. Trust me, I am feeling the pressure as much as you are! But here are some tips that I have found beneficial in battling the midterm stress. 1. GET ENOUGH SLEEP. This is one of the hardest, because we all have…

A thought about the “museum artifacts” in which I am majoring…

| WMU

Hello, Broncos. So, as I have stated before, I am majoring in Acting and Opera, essentially. I tend to do quite a bit of “classical” theatre in our Department, such as Shakespeare and stage adaptations of literary classics. My question is: why does Shakespeare and opera seem outdated, only for older audiences, or unreachable for…

This is how I spend my snow days.

| WMU

Welcome to a snow day in our Unit of Western View. What do we do? Make a killer breakfast and call all the neighbors who don’t have to go outside to get to our apartment, of course! And that one drawing you see? That is a whiteboard refrigerator. That’s right. Things to look forward to…

Polar Vortex Survival Guide

| WMU

Hello, Broncos! I hope you didn’t miss me too much. It has arrived. Some are calling it the Polar Vortex. Others have nicknamed the snow storm Hercules. But us here at WMU simply know one thing: Snow days. That’s right. I used an “s” there. Two of them. Not just one, but two. Well, when…

A Serious Note

| WMU

All right, Broncos. We’re going to take it down a notch and get serious. Something interesting has become apparent to me in our office. We are currently having construction done on one of our bathrooms in our building (which is three stories), and we are now limited to one bathroom for the entirety of the…

New Year, New Bronco!

| WMU

Long time no talk, Broncos! Well, here we are. Two weeks into the new school year, and the whole campus life is in full swing! Today is an exciting day here on main campus. Today is…Bronco Bash. What is Bronco Bash, you ask? It is only arguably the best day in the entirety of the…

Let me tell you about Shawarma…

| WMU

Okay, Broncos. All the blogs I’ve written previously? Child’s play to what’s about to come next. Let’s talk about Shawarma. Never heard of it? Only heard of it after seeing The Avengers? It’s time to change that. Wikipedia states: Shawarma (Arabic: شاورما‎ Urdu: شوارما‎) is a Levantine Arab[1][2] meat preparation, where lamb, chicken, turkey, beef,…

Excitement in Kalamazoo!

Hello, my dear Broncos! This weekend was one full of excitement and adventure in our dear town of Kalamazoo. The beginning of June is the kick-off for all of the summer festivals and fairs and events. The festivities began on Thursday night and continued through Saturday night. What an enjoyable time! So my experience started…

Rainy Day? No Problem.

Hello, my Broncos. Here we are, day after Memorial Day weekend. I had planned on having a lovely day on the sailboat with my family yesterday, but alas! It was cold and raining. So what did I do? Had some serious indoor adventures. Here is a list of all the best things to do on…
