|My Thanksgiving Dinner|
The biggest event in November, by far, is Thanksgiving Dinner. Upperclassmen talked about it for weeks, which in turn made everyone excited. And it was really nice to get to enjoy a meal with my friends. Also, in November, I went on a LEAP retreat. Through LEAP, I had a great experience and met a lot of people I wouldn't have otherwise.
December was a short month, comprised mostly of finals, studying for finals, and in my case, being sick. However, I made my debut on the St. Mike's Stage! For their final, the Directing class has to direct one scene. I auditioned and was cast in Almost, Maine. I had a great time working with Dom, my scene partner, and Craig, our director. Here's the video!
Overall, I had a great first semester. I learned a lot, both inside and outside the classroom. I made friends that I hope I will have for a lifetime. Thanks for following along, I can't wait to see what second semester brings!
