Four more class days to go.
Because the quarter is wrapping up we are all bogged down with several last minute projects! Hooray! We are currently working on our humanities presentation (my topic is the Unknown Warrior), humanities paper (I'm writing mine on pirate radios in the 60s), two theatre projects (one on a play and one on some random place in London where we'd set a play we've seen here), and memorizing a poem for English. Fun, fun, fun!
Last weekend was spent finishing English journals, studying for tests, and doing laundry. On Monday seven of us went with Josh to the Tate Britain. I did like this museum more than the Tate Modern, but it still had some pieces we could not make any sense of.
That night we saw Through A Looking Glass Darkly, a play about a woman with a mental disorder where she starts hearing voices, presumably calling her to God... It was disturbing. But pretty good.
Yesterday we had a field trip first to the British Museum. It is comprised of ninety rooms and we only really went for three of them. I'd like to go back before I leave.
After the museum we headed over to Hampstead to go see the house John Keats stayed at. This was the house where his relationship with Fanny Brawne began. I was very excited since I really love Keats and the story between he and Fanny.
That night we saw a play called Light Shining on Buckinghamshire. First of all, the theatre was so hot that our teacher was scared for us and told people to go home if they felt sick. Over half of our class went home. We stuck it out because we felt bad for the actors. The play itself didn't interest me too much. A lot of religious zealots and a lot of screaming. It was very hard to follow.
Tonight we're going to see Domini Republic. It's another outdoor play. I have no idea what to expect.
Tomorrow in class we get to watch Bright Star, a movie about Keats and Fanny Brawne. I love this movie so I am actually excited to get up early to get a good seat in class! The rest of our classes are just presentations and a test. Soon enough Emily, Monica, and I will be gallivanting off to the continent!
