BLOG: Being Thankful

November 23, 2012


Filed under InstaRam

It's 2 AM, Thanksgiving is officially over, and I now lay in bed hammering away at my keyboard. It's one of those nights where your brain is so full that sleep is not an option...aided by the food coma nap that I took earlier this evening. After the past couple of months I've had, I'm thankful I was a...

BLOG: Don’t forget to thank your techies!

November 20, 2012


Filed under InstaRam

Technical roles are often overlooked. It is said that when they are done correctly, the audience should not even notice they were there at all. Essentially, these roles are there to make the actors look good. Without them, however, the entire production would fall apart. For the November 2012 production...

OK. It may be your first time, it may not be, but if you are onstage, solo or duet, doing stand up or as an emcee, it can be extremely intimidating. So you're up there, getting more and more confident as your time onstage goes on, when all of the sudden...a voice arises from the crowd. May...

BLOG: Surviving Tech Week

November 12, 2012


Filed under InstaRam

For those of you who have not been religiously following our tweets (how DARE you), I have been stuck inside all day at tech rehearsals for the Theatre Department's These Seven Sicknesses. For this show, I will be a part of the run crew. What is tech week? It's the end of the rehearsal process,...

BLOG: Drag Shows, Explained

October 25, 2012


Filed under InstaRam

Drag shows: a wild, hilarious, sometimes raunchy, and entertaining time. They are most certainly not for everyone, some are uncomfortable at them, and that is all right. If you don’t feel comfortable at them, simply don’t attend. I wouldn’t attend a country music concert, as I am not a fan. T...

In high school, I had a friend I never made plans with. We'd make plans to hang out, yes, but we never knew where we would end up. We mutually agreed to drive until we saw a sign. During the course of high school, we ended up at numerous yard sales, dressed as cows advertising a bake sale, at ...

BLOG: Halloween

October 11, 2012


Filed under InstaRam

If you're like me (and according to all Instagram/Facebook/Pinterest/ugh...all of you are), the most exciting portion of our year is October-December. We've got Halloween (costumes, scary stories, candy), Thanksgiving (food from Not Sodexo), Christmas (presents), and New Years (parties). Nothing is wrong...

BLOG: How to Appear High Society at the Orchestra

October 10, 2012


Filed under InstaRam

OK. I went to the Boston Symphony Orchestra last night at Symphony Hall and there are a few things I noticed that I just HAD to blog about. Perhaps you are not a connoisseur of music or the arts in general. Maybe you are a tad disobedient and disorderly. Don't fret, you're not alone. So how do you know how to be...

Do you know what this week is??? [uncomfortably long pause] That's right! The 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation. If you actually guessed that, Dora the Explorer is proud...está muy orgullosa. There are a couple of events in tribute to that this week: First off, there is ...

Our Manifesto

Filed under InstaRam

Sometimes it is hard not to live on a traditional college campus. With so much going on in the city, it is not easy to keep track of what is happening at Suffolk. There are so many offices, fliers, Twitter accounts, and friends who won’t shut up about their upcoming shows - it’s overwhelming. The...
