WALKING UP BEACON STREET TO SAWYER EVERY MORNING
Still to come
It’s so strange to realize that this Thursday is Thanksgiving. I remember last year I used Thanksgiving break as a sort of check point to how close winter break is. But this year it’s kind of scary to realize that winter break is right around the corner. I officially received my acceptance letter from Regents College in London the other day so if all goes according to plan I will be...
Internship in Madrid
As I have mentioned before I am planning on studying abroad in London spring semester. When I was talking to some upperclassmen who had studied in London last year I learned about a flamenco course offered in Madrid during three weeks of the summer. Now I am in love with travel and want to do as much as humanly possible when I am abroad so instantly I was intrigued. It is a theater course so it...
Last week I attended the free and open to all movement workshop offered by Suffolk University’s Theater Department. Now I am in now way a dancer of any kind and sometimes cannot even master the simple act of walking (I tend to trip a lot) so when I saw that a movement workshop I am not going to lie, I just kept on walking. I didn’t really think it could offer or teach me anything. I...
Suffolk Cinema Series
On Tuesday night Suffolk University welcomed Laura Colella to their Cinema Series in which filmmakers come to the school and then following a screening of one of their films they take part in a discussion with students. I was in the audience this past Tuesday and had a great time watching the film and being able to hear an actual filmmaker talk about her work. The film was “Tax Day”...
Breast Cancer Awareness
Last Thursday I headed down to the Ridgeway Gym to attend Suffolk University’s Breast Cancer Awareness event. I attended this event last year so I thought it would pretty much be the same thing. Woah was I wrong. This event got even bigger and better. It was truly astounding to see how many athletes, students, advisors, and professors took time out of a busy work day to show their...
The Legend of Faust
Last week I attended a lecture offered by the Theater Department about the legend of Faust. I am currently in rehearsal for Suffolk University’s presentation of Dr. Faustus I was incredibly intrigued to learn the history of a story told so often but honestly I wasn’t expecting what I learned. I was not aware of how this legend seems to be even more popular now then it was when it was...
Let Suffolk Entertain You
Last night I had the absolute pleasure to not only go to the Theater Departments Fall Showcase but I also got to attend a rehersal and performance from the improv group Seriously Bent. Now this week was incredibly difficult and busy with projects and midterm madness and let me tell you, I was a little nervous I wasn’t going to be able to fully enjoy any of it because I’d be so...
Today in class my professor was going over our next project. Now this is my media production class, which is required for my major, and is also one of the toughest courses I have ever taken. It is a basic but intense introduction to Final Cut (a professional video editing system), lighting, framing, shooting, microphones, filming, and basically everything you ever didn’t know you needed to...
It is crazy to think that in less than four months I might be studying in another country. I am currently working on my application for the spring semester to study abroad in London at Regents American College. As a film major and theater minor, it is truly a dream come true to be able to study any form of entertainment in London which is one of the media capitals of the world. I am just sooo...
Last Thursday I went to Suffolk University’s own Modern Theater to watch a production of Robert Brusteins “Mortal Terror.” At first I had no idea what to expect, especially since the tagline simply read “A Playwright, A queen, a reviled king…, and a s***load of explosives.” Although I do love plays I had no intention of going until it became somewhat of a...
Wow! It’s crazy to think I am already back at Suffolk University for my sophomore year. It honestly feels like just yesterday I was packing up my stuff…not quite ready to leave freshmen year behind and go home for the summer. Even though I am back at the same school surrounded by familiar and friendly faces…I can’t help but feeling differently about this year. I view...
Campus Movie Fest
Last week, I attended one of my favorite events…ever. For someone who has attended quite a few events here at Suffolk I should probably explain myself a bit. As a film student my love for movies is pretty well known, and this night was dedicated to celebrating that love. At Campus Movie Fest 16 student made films were shown in the Donahue Cafeteria which had been attempted to be turned...
Last Tuesday I attended Suffolk University’s Recognition Night. It was held at the same church where convocation occured just a few months earlier. Although it had been just a few months, it truly seemed like forever sinced I had stepped foot in the church with my fellow freshmen all of us wearing those “flattering” black robes during the first week or so of school. In so...
Last week I went with a friend to see the Wicked hip hop dance team perform and all I can say is that I was honestly blown away. First off, I did not expect a lot of people to be in attendance because it was a thursday night and I assumed a lot of people would not know about it but I was completely wrong. The entire C.Walsh theater was almost filled and everyone was loving the show. The...
It still has the magic
Last week, my best friend from back home in RI came up to Suffolk to stay with me for a few days. Not only are we pretty sentimental so I wanted to show her where I go to class or work every day but she is also considering Suffolk for law school after she graduates so I got to give her the official tour of Suffolk. When I was showing her everything from how Archer and Donahue connect to the gym...
So as I mentioned in my last blog I spent my spring break working with Habitat for Humanity in Meridian, Mississippi. I cannot express how much I loved this experience and how much it truly changed my life. Although we were only involved in the refurbishing of the house (sanding, painting, electric and cabinet work), its a strange feeling to know that thanks to you someone in the future is going...
Ahhh spring break is finally here and honestly it could not have come soon enough! With projects, papers, and midterms all this week, at times I didn’t think it would ever be here. Now as many students head to warm areas to soak up the sun or just back home to relax I am doing something a little different. I am participating in Suffolk University’s Alternative Spring Break or ASB. ...

Welcome to Wonderland
This weekend I had the pleasure of seeing the PAO’s musical “Bare” not only once but twice! Now when people say that they see a movie or a show twice within 2 weeks I always wonder how they didn’t get sick of it or bored the second time, after all you know whats going to happen, and you remember quite vividly because you just saw it. But in this case I saw it first on...
Today in class, a teacher started talking about midterms and what to expect on the test and after puzzling over that statement for a few minutres, it kind of hit me…wow we’re halfway through with second semester of our freshmen year. As cliche as it sounds it really feels like just yesterday I was driving into Boston wondering what it was going to be like to go to school here. I was...
