I’ve come to the conclusion that no one truly knows who I am. I think it’s because I kind of like to do everything. Creativity is my forte, and finding outlets to express it here at PUC has been very easy for me. Depending on who you ask, you’ll get a different description of what I do in my free time. I’ve been labeled as a singer/songwriter, an actor, and a choreographer. Triple threat right? Not really. Just because I can do all these things doesn’t mean I’m great at them.

This year I tried my hand at directing theatre. I directed a student-written play called Espionage that was showcased last weekend in the annual One Acts Festival. The Dramatic Arts Society put on such a great show this year. We pretty much took a metaphorical hammer, and threw it repeatedly at the fourth wall, Avenger-style. Professor Aagaard, the head of the drama department, did an amazing job organizing the myriad plays being prepared for the show. The audience became the set, the actors climbed over the audience, and the set was filled with bananas… It was an interactive experience.

Oh look! I just got an email telling me that I’ve been added to the roster of performers for the Talent Show this weekend. Talent Show 2012 is going to be pretty big for me. I’m helping a few groups fill out their performances with some harmonies, a group of guys are dancing to my choreography, and I’m finally doing a solo bit. I’m pretty excited.

Excitement aside, my life here at PUC isn’t all fun and games. I spend the majority of my time studying for all my classes, holding down two jobs, managing an internship, leading a club, and trying to find sleep somewhere in between. Such is the life of a college student. I think I described most of my friends in this paragraph.

With creative outlets to express myself, an amazing environment to flourish in, and seasoned professors to keep me thinking critically, I’m definitely blessed to be on this campus. I think maybe I’ll pick up writing next quarter. Yoseph the playwright? Nahhh…
