So this week was pretty busy. On Tuesday, I attended the Alternative Psychology Careers Panel. There were five panelists, each of whom was a working psychologist, but not a therapist. There was a CEO, two human resources workers, a speech pathologist, and a secondary school counselor. It was informative, especially for someone like me, who’d like to major in psychology but not become a therapist.
On Thursday, I attended the MTA production of The Winter’s Tale , by William Shakespeare. The production was fantastic. The stage was set up so that the audience was surrounding it, and there was music and dancing and some fantastic acting. I had previously been unfamiliar with the play, but I really enjoyed it.
Later that night, my friends and I threw our friend Sean a surprise party! Sean just turned 18, and when my friends Ally and Emily and I were at the farmer’s market today, we saw some giant cupcakes and knew we had to buy one for Sean. It was a fun party and he was surprised!
On Saturday, I attended some of the shows of the Red Door Play Festival. The Red Door Play Festival is a series of 10 student directed plays that are put on, where else, in the Red Door. My friend Ally was in one called War at Home, a dramatic play about 9/11. However, not all of the plays were dramatic. Another one I saw, Marcus is Walking, was hilarious! Later that night, after dinner, it started snowing! It didn’t last long, but it was exciting for my friend Ally, who lives in LA and therefore had never seen an actual snowfall before.
Then, today, I did some homework and watched Songcycles, a performance ensemble that sings songs by new musical theatre composers. The show was an hour long, and each member of the group gave a moving performance.
Well, that’s about it for this week! I’m truly excited to go home on Tuesday and see my family and friends for Thanksgiving (And Hanukkah!)
‘Till next time!
