Soo I haven’t been posting too much lately, mea culpa.

But for the past couple weeks I, and my fellow blogger Olivia, have been hard at work on the Drama Department’s production, Arcadia by Tom Stoppard. 

It’s been a semester-long affair, starting the first week we returned from winter break and opening just two weeks before finals. 

The play has been an amazing, rewarding experience that I will surely miss after the final bow this Saturday. 

Tomorrow, Wednesday, is opening night. And I’ve never been more excited about an opening night than I have now.

The show runs from April 16-19. On Wednesday through Friday, the show begins at 8, and on Saturday, showtime is 1:30.

Come see it. It’s a masterpiece.

Today, March 25, is Maryland Day, the 380th birthday of the great(est) state, Maryland! Maryland Day marks the anniversary of the settlement of St.Clement’s Island, the first settlement in Maryland. 

Maryland has been my home for 19 years and counting and I can’t imagine being from anywhere else. It’s beautiful, charming, historical, and just all around perfect. 

Now I’ll be taking a trip down memory lane and sharing my favorite places in Maryland.

1. Annapolis, MD

The Maryland state capital is my hometown and home to St. Mary’s in downtown, where I spent 13 years of my life, K-12.

2. Cunningham Falls State Park

Every fall my parents and I visit the gorgeous Cunningham Falls State Park in Northern Maryland, just outside Emmitsburg. 

3. Assateague Island National Seashore

Looking to camp on the water for cheap? Look no further than Assateague Island. It’s where a couple of friends and I spent our spring break, and will likely come back many times more. 

4. Chestertown and Washington College

How could I make a list of my favorite places in Maryland without including my new home in Chestertown?

And there you have it. My favorite destinations in my favorite state. 

Bonus photo of hands down the best state flag:

Today is the War on the Shore, the annual lacrosse gain between Washington College and Salisbury, which is considered one of the biggest rivalries in Division III lacrosse. 

WAC is currently ranked 7th in the nation, and is looking to upset #2 Salisbury to claim the Charles B. Clark Cup for the second year in a row. 

Last year, the Shoremen beat the Seagulls in the final minutes of the game with a goal from then-junior, Hunter Nowicki. It was Washington’s first victory over Salisbury in over a decade, and I was lucky enough to be there in person. 

This year, I’ll be missing it, unfortunately, because of rehearsals. But I will be watching the livestream of the game at 4 here:

Thankfully, Washington College will be hosting the War on the Shore my senior year. 

Go Shoremen.

Definitely going to this. Perfect opportunity for networking, and maybe even snagging an internship.

So last week was spring break and it was a nice time to relax and not stress too much about college for a bit. I got back on Sunday ready for the tail end of the spring semester to begin. Until…

SNOW DAY

I’d say I was surprised, but that would be a lie. The weather in Maryland all year has been all over the place. One day it’s 70˚ and sunny, two days later it’s freezing and snowing and ridiculous. 

So I, and the rest of campus, had one extra day to settle in.

It’s Tuesday morning, and I’m again ready to get back to class. I check my email to find a message sent from my philosophy professor.

class canceled. My only class of the day.

My only class was canceled. ANOTHER day for me. Plus i haven’t had rehearsal either days, so it’s been abnormally quiet since coming back from Annapolis. 

Crazy stuff

Go Shoremen.

Spring Break is next week, and that means MIDTERMS.

So far the semester has been pretty manageable, with the exception of 4 essays due over three days (NIGHTMARE)

I’m enjoying all of my classes. They’re all discussion based and it’s interesting hearing everyone’s thoughts on topics like hinduism, philosophy, Theodore Roosevelt, and terrorism, just to name a few. 

Snow days and late openings and sickness have plagued my GRW class. But other than that, things have been going pretty well. 

Thankfully, I don’t have any midterm essay or exams. I can just ease into spring break after my last class ends on friday.

So today’s the day. Reading Day. The kick-off of…FINALS WEEK. 

I’m lucky to only have two exams, but this is still an extremely important time to get down to business and kick some college-level ass. 

As a sort of last hurrah before finals, the EROS club held there annual Drag Ball. I dressed up, looked ridiculous, and had the most fun I’ve had all year so far. 

But now it’s go time. 

Go Shoremen

Brian out.

Just like the past 2 weeks, I will be seeing another Drama thesis tonight, “Fuddy Meers”. So far, the shows have been really fun and entertaining, especially “Almost blue”, which is still blowing my mind at how well done it was.
