Thursday for theater class, we went to see Taming of the Shrew by Synetic Theater, but it wasn't typical Shakespeare at all. It was silent! There was music, but no words. It was also supposed to be a modern hip hop version set in a very smutty Hollywood-type city. It was bizarre, kind of crude, and I did not like it at all. I don't think anyone in the house did. It wasn't a great way to end my week or a good play to end this theater class on.
I came home on Thursday to find the cutest popcorn tin from my Aunt Jean. I definitely needed a pick-me-up so that was just perfect! She spoiled me too much when she was here, so I can't believe she sent me this popcorn, too!

With the semester drawing to a close, some of you may be wondering what this blog will be afterwards. Maybe you're not...but I guess I'm trying to answer myself on that question right now. I still want to keep it up, though I likely won't have as many sightseeing adventures to document. I'll probably do some general life update posts infrequently when something big happens or I take a trip. I definitely want to write more about PR and social media related topics. I've always wanted to since I started it, but I let the DC posts take priority for the time being. Maybe in my unemployment I'll finally have time to be as crafty as you would think I am from looking at my Pinterest boards and post about that! And I'll put it in writing right now so I stick to it - I want to try a diet when I get home, and I may write about how that goes. We'll see!
Sorry for the mildly depressing post, but no worries! I'm bringing out my favorite Coldplay and James Morrison tunes, which always feel so right and have gotten me through a lot. I'm hoping the next two weeks are much better than this one, and I'll be home before I know it.
