Hey, aspiring Broncos! In order to get to the glory that is Spring Break, a whole week off of class, sans-homework, in Philadelphia with ASB (SEE EARLIER POST!), I have to get through this dreary week of midterm exams.

Excursion to Tigre

| WMU

Today I went with my study abroad program on a day trip to Tigre, a small town about an hour from Buenos Aires, Argentina.  Tigre lies on the Parana Delta and is named Tigre (Tiger) because of the tigers and jaguars that were hunted there in its early years (No, I didn’t get to pet…

What am I doing with my life?

| WMU

I remember the worst part about being a 2nd semester senior in high school. It wasn’t senioritis, it wasn’t prepping to depart from some of my closest friends,  it was the constant onslaught of “So where are you going to school?”, “What are you majoring in?”, “Don’t know? Well you better get on that!”, “Have you…

Cute, but SOOO Cliché

| WMU

So apparently I have a boyfriend now, which means that I will in fact be participating in Valentine’s Day this year. I am not particularly fond of the idea of a day dedicated to love. It’s a little cliché because everyday should be an expression of feelings for someone, not just one overwhelming day. Well,…

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 My question is: why does Shakespeare and opera seem outdated, only for older audiences, or unreachable for…
