A rough overview of my Spring Break:
After finishing The Invitation Game, I immediately came down with the terrible cold I've been cleverly avoiding all year. While all I've really wanted to do is sleep, my spring break has been rather hectic.
The Thursday before break I headed to Milwaukee to talk with professors in the Occupational Therapy department about the program and about possible assistantships. It was nice to see the campus and to get a feel of what I could be doing for the next two and a half years. I returned home late Friday and immediately went to bed.
I worked all day on Saturday and Sunday at Decorah Hatchery, spending the time I wasn't at work with friends who were in town for dance rehearsals. On Sunday night, we saw Zootopia, which is an amazing new Disney movie about racial stereotypes and the 1990s crack epidemic. I highly recommend it if you haven't seen it yet!
On Monday, we began rehearsals for the remounting of Body of Water. We rehearsed most of the day on Monday and Tuesday, and then we drove to Ames where we would be performing the show at the Iowa National Water Conference. On Wednesday, we spent the day in tech, and then put up the show at 7pm. After a talkback and teardown, we headed to Campus Town where we got our party on. (All drinks, meals, and hotel rooms courtesy of the Water Conference. Who says you can't make money as an artist?). On Thursday, we made the drive back to Decorah. I spent a few hours doing some deep cleaning of the apartment before driving home to Northfield.
I then spent two beautiful days doing absolutely nothing (when I should have been doing a lot of homework). I watched copious amount of Gilmore Girls, baked cookies for no good reason, loaded up my Kindle with books that have been on my to-read list for awhile, and painted my nails for the first time in months.
This morning, Easter Sunday, I headed to church with my brothers and my dad. My cold is still pretty tiresome, so I went home and slept for another four (!!) hours while my brothers and my dad went and had Easter Brunch in the Twin Cities. When I woke up, I decided to make the drive back down to Decorah, making a needed Trader Joe's stop along the way. This evening has been full of homework and housework, and tomorrow will be even more homework. And probably caffeine courtesy of Java John's.
I hope your Spring Break was joyful and perhaps more rejuvenating than mine :)
