I’ve got to admit, these late nights dedicated to homework are getting longer and less interesting by the week, but it’s most definitely worth it for what my quarter has held so far. It may still be the beginning of a beautiful (and rainless!) quarter, but teachers and classes (Intro to Sociology for me) have hit the ground running. So has work on the spring production for the dramatic arts department at PUC, which is an original adaptation of the story behind the story of Alice and Wonderland. Besides the crazy amount of hours put into it (we have eight hour practices on Sundays) it’s looking to be a beautiful show that everyone should most definitely attend—if I, one of the cast members, may say so myself.

This quarter holds excitement for seniors as they get ready to ring that legendary bell at finals week and finish up their hard work at this college. It holds anticipation for students that will continue their academic journeys here at Pacific Union College or those getting ready to study abroad for a year through the ACA program. I am crossing my fingers for a school year in Sagunto, Spain, next year.

Everything is already looking promising, with glances at next year’s elected Student Association officers; the excitement of REVO, which starts this weekend with the annual REVO RUN; or just how beautiful it is outside. Just don’t be fooled by the clear skies and sunny days, it is still pretty cold outside. I have made the mistake of wearing a spring dress more than once this month.

As for me, I am going to enjoy as much as I can while I’m here. I am spending much more time than usual in San Francisco because of a very enlightening English class, Bay Area Theater Season, in which we as a class watch original plays all over the Bay and Berkeley and write about them. This being one of the many interesting classes here, the last seven weeks here on campus look bright. I hope this year ends on a high note for everyone, so we can all start our much-anticipated summer breaks.
