Show Night

April 3rd, 2009

I have said it before and I will say it again: time goes fast. Tonight is the first show of this semester’s play! I have had a few small attacks of nervousness today, but mostly I am just really excited. This past week we have had rehearsal every night, so we should be more than ready. It has taken up much of my time. So much, that my previous post only announced what I was not writing about. I’ll try to make up for it. The best way of doing this might be posting some of the pictures that I have been taking around campus.

Last weekend, we had the first training session for orientation committee. We were working on getting to know each other, assigning committees,  and coming up with a good theme for orientation. It is going to be THE BEST ORIENTATION EVER – period.

This week brought Spring. We had some days that were unbelievably nice. Right temperature, right breeze, right air of Spring. The squirrels were playing between the daffodils while bagpipers were playing in the background.  I think that is a scene that you can only encounter at The College of Wooster. The sounds of the Scot bagpipers actually raised my school spirit to levels only achieved before during Wooster basketball games. The nice weather was not just  inviting bagpipers. Lovers of soccer gathered from all across campus up until the point that the number of players exceeded the capacity of the field. We had to move to a different field to gratify everyone’s soccer needs. Fortunately, campus is rich in (soccer) fields.

Yesterday, we had a great opportunity to take photos with next year’s ambassadors. After the photo shoot we had our first ambassadors’ meeting. All ambassadors will get some money to buy artifacts from their countries and will be doing research on interesting topics related to their country. Next year, the Wooster community will be hearing about Pakistan, India, Ecuador, The Netherlands, and Botswana. The ambassadors next year are Nita, Bastiaan, Prachi, Amun, and Morag. Today’s game is to guess who is representing what country. One tip: our program coordinator is in the picture too.
