I love this semester! It's crazy and hectic, but it's been an amazing experience. I've realized that if I really push myself, I can do a lot of things. I've also lost so much sleep over the past months, but I think of it as a benefit.
This past month/weekend was pretty intense itself. On March 26th, I went to watch 365 Days, which was a play at school. I don't think I could handle being a part of that show because every night would be so emotional. I think it's because I feel so passionate about wars in general; I am a pacifist! I spent Sunday with my parents.
Spring Break was not enough, but I did enjoy going to Six Flags and the road trip up to Northern California. I don't think I can handle Six Flags anymore! :( We visited Hearst Castle, San Francisco State University (SFSU), and Alcatraz. It really was a knowledgeable experience; I learned so much and it made me open my mind even more.
This past week has also been very busy. On Tuesday, rehearsal was cancelled so I was able to go to the baseball game. We won! :) Wednesday and Thursday were ASI elections for President/Vice President and the Board of Directors. Results were released at night time, and there will be a run-off election this week because neither parties had 51% of the votes. Also, I think it is necessary to note that (I think) only 3% of the school voted in general. On Friday, I went to watch the Grand Central one-acts. My favorite was 'Dentity by Christopher Durang -his works are amazingly hilarious- but I also appreciated the experiment of Savage/Love.
Saturday was Queer People of Conference at UC Riverside. It has been my favorite part of the month so far! It was an all-day event (it technically spanned over 3 days, but we only went on Saturday) with a variety of workshops. I learned so much about other peoples' perspectives and etc. It also made me feel more passionate about some things that I already believe in. Today, I watched Footloose. I had heard about it and I know it's really popular. I never really knew what it was about, so it was a nice surprise to experience it today. Afterward, I ate a lot of food. Went to Sprinkles, The Shack (similar to Boiling Crab), Half & Half (another boba tea place), and Krispy Kreme.
This upcoming weekend is California Higher Education Student Summit (CHESS) and I am REALLY looking forward to it. I love conventions/conferences/etc. because I get to meet new people, share ideas and discuss thoughts, and learn more about the world in general. Before I leave to Sacramento on Friday, I also have to take care of Spring Concert, which is on April 22nd, and rehearsals for The Crowd You're In With.
I am also trying to be involved in a new organization called Multicultural Arts Council and the LGBT Resource Center.
