It’s been only three days, and already Intersession has been one of my best experiences at Hopkins. Here’s a look at what’s typically an Intersession day for me:
7:30 am: Wake up!
Wait… What’s this?! It’s snowing!
That means delayed classes, so I went back to sleep. 🙂
10:30 am: Actually wake up!
11am: Breakfast/Lunch at the Fresh Food Cafe
The FGE Lab is a 2 credit Intersession course that meets every day for the entire three weeks. It’s a fascinating course in which we get to do the entire process of producing a desired protein through bacteria. Also, the professor, Robert Horner, is one of the best teachers I’ve had so far at Hopkins.
2pm: Witness Theatre Pre-production meeting
I’m directing/acting for a Witness Theatre Showcase, to be presented on Valentine’s weekend! Witness Theatre is the only theatre group on Hopkins to produce only student written plays.
3pm: Workout at the Rec Center
5pm: Barnstormers Production-Team meeting
The Barnstormers, another one of Hopkins’ premier theatre groups are producing Brighton Beach Memoirs as their Intersession-show. It’s going to be presented on the weekend of January 30th. I’m proud to be the Assistant Stage-Manager for the show! We had our first production-team meeting, where we discussed our views and plans for the show.
7pm: Student Government Association meeting with fellow Senator, Heidi Woll
My fellow Senator and good friend, Heidi Woll, and I met to discuss our SGA plans for the upcoming semester. Ended up writing all over the walls of our Brody room.
8pm: Brighton Beach Memoirs rehearsal at Arellano Theatre
Went to one of the rehearsals for the Barnstormers I-show to start getting an idea of what the production will look like and what I can help them with. Theatre at Hopkins is a coordinated group effort, which is what makes the productions so great.
And that’s my day!
More snow appreciation, cause it really was a beautiful day:
