As one of my friends said to me yesterday, “syllabus week doesn’t exist at Holy Cross, we just jump right into class.”
The way my last two weeks have gone, truer words have never been spoken. Last Monday, after an extremely uneventful winter break, I arrived back on campus to start the spring semester of my freshman year. This semester, I am enrolled in a religion class, a philosophy class, basic acting, and my Montserrat seminar, a literature class that focuses on the genre of science fiction.
All of these classes have been going well, albeit at a very fast pace! Over the past two weeks, I have done multiple philosophy and religion readings and performed a monologue for basic acting. All of my classes engage my mind in a way that is different from how I usually think, causing me to explore my mind and my beliefs.
Besides my classes, I am involved in the a capella group Off the Record, and I am preparing to audition for the theatre department’s spring show, The Skin of Our Teeth. I am also working in Kimball dining hall and am looking into applications to be an RA or a Kimball captain next year. Finally, I am looking forward to see many of my friends in the Alternate College Theatre musical Legally Blonde, whose opening night is tonight!
