La Biblioteca

I love this place, and miss using it so much. Next semester I intend on being here frequently. Currently working on a resume, WOO!


Let’s get thankful, folks!

Ah, here we are. The obligatory holiday post. So, for all of us Americans, tomorrow is Thanksgiving. I recently looked into the history of it, and it is intriguing to see the very different camps regarding the origins of this day. I won’t deny that the possible origins are in fact horrifying, and I think it is unrealistic for it to be portrayed as, as some people call it, “a cross cultural love fest”. So, I think we all need to go into tomorrow continuing to be thankful, but with remembrance for where it started and respect for those who likely lost their lives.

  • Continuing on, like I said, let’s get thankful! We should be thankful every day, and I hope to God that it’s common sense for everyone to do so. Here’s my condensed list of anything and everything to be thankful for! My fantastic family, who drive to Boston in terrible traffic to pick me up, and try guacamole when I beg them to. They are each fantastic people, and I am very grateful to be a part of this family.
  • My wonderful friends, who are my second family. New, and old, Emmanuel and Massabesic alike, each human I am friends with is an absolute gem with talent and strength, and bright futures ahead of them!
  • The counseling center at EC. I’m still trying to get accustomed to the changes this semester, but last semester, it saved my life. Kristen, wherever you currently are, I hope your life is going splendidly. Thanks to you, so is mine.
  • Opinions! Opinions are these wonderful things that make us all so complex and brilliant. If you are passionate about something, please don’t be afraid to say something. Not everyone will agree with you, but you can learn and grow from a discussion, in wonderful ways.
  • Pets! You precious little cherubs, I always look forward to seeing you, and I hope you love your day to day pet life.
  • Relay for Life! The ACS is doing great things, and together, we can all create more birthdays!

Well, those are just some of the things I am thankful for! How about you? What are you thankful for?

Acting and all of that other jazz.


 So, this past month, I have been pretty swamped with a show. Now, I don’t have as much theater background as a lot of my friends do. I have mainly done sketches, save for a performance of The Lion King at GS Camp. I auditioned for a lot of shows in high school, and a lot of shows in college before I was offered a part in The 39 Steps. Funny thing is, in this show, I played around 12-13 characters, ranging from your standard policeman to a Scottish inn owner.

 It was an absolutely thrilling experience to be a part of. The cast and crew are immensely talented, and such GEMS as humans. It is immensely upsetting to think that it’s over now. I became so accustomed to it, and it’s just like Odyssey of the Mind all over again. We all put a lot of hard work into the production, and I am so glad that it was well received. It ignited again in me a passion that I had been missing for a long time, to be up there and putting on a show. It was wonderful to induce laughter and smiles. The stage manager even told me how excited she and the director were to put me in my first show at Emmanuel, and I just…I don’t know if they really understand how much that means. I’m just so honored to be a part of this group, this HUGE group of people who love performing and love each other.

  My question for you folks (at this point, probably just Sara) is what makes you come alive? What fuels your fire in college, or high school, or wherever you are? Is it acting, writing, singing? Or is it something completely different? Whatever it is, please, I beg of you, pursue it.



Hi everyone! So, this is just a little blog I’m going to keeping for the heck of it. Expect any number of things here, from reviews, to thoughts on intense topics, or less intense topics, to writing, and updates on my life! Bear with me : )
