There are two types of people in the world, those who will write it down and those who will forget it.
~ Rebecca Kazdan (yes I just quoted myself…confident or narcissist…you decide!)
Since I am total nerd, one of favourite things to do on a Sunday night is to curl up with a cup of tea (I recommend Mint Majesty, it is from Teavana but you can also get it at Starbucks) and write out my to-do list for the following week.
I find this helpful especially when the upcoming week is looking hella busy. I can’t explain it, there is just something about colour coding my life gives me great ease and helps me sleep a little better.
As you could probably gage from my tweets, recent blog posts, and just general frazzled demeanor… I’ve got a lot going on right now. So I figured for this week’s post I’ll kill two birds with one stone and share with you a little taste of what I have to look forward to in the upcoming week.
Edit and hand in my essay for FRAN 4640
Critiquing intergenerational conflicts in Maghrebian literature.
It’s not the most fun assignment I’ve ever had, but I see the light at the end of the tunnel and I will be so glad when I can finally check this off my list.
Rehearse and perform a Toy Theatre show for DRST 3635
I’m currently taking a course centered on puppetry (which is cooler than it sounds). This week we have mid-term performances, so my group and I really need to get it together to knock this baby out of the park (side note: you gotta love Drama Studies, I’ll take a puppet show over an exam any day).
Head to the Aki Studio, to see Amanda Parris’ The Other Side of The Game
I have to see this show for one of my courses and I have heard tons of great things! Super excited to see what they have in store!
Attend a creation workshop with Ange Loft, associate Artistic Director for Jumblies Theatre, for DRST 4621
As part of my Intercultural Theatre course, Indigenous artist Ange Loft will be leading a workshop based off her Talking Treaties performance that took place at Fort York last summer. For more details check out their website.
Run new mentor training for Peace by PEACE
Peace by PEACE is a student-run non-profit organization dedicated to teaching conflict management and community building to elementary school students. As a part of the Executive Team for the Glendon chapter I am helping run our Fall training sessions to get our student mentor ready to start heading into classroom starting in January
Run rehearsal for Little Shop of Horrors
This year I am also directing Lionheart Productions’ (the student run theatre company) MainStage musical. This Saturday we will be figuring out the logistics behind having a giant plant eat people on stage… no big deal.
Work in recruitment and create master plans with #TeamAwesome’s content team
Yes, I have to go behind the scenes of the official @GlendonCampus accounts at my ultra trendy millennial job that involves me pretending that I understand Photoshop and social media analytics (it also involves working with great people, see above photo for details).
Hang out at Fall Campus Day and meet all your beautiful faces.
That’s right, it’s Glendon Fall Campus Day this upcoming Sunday Nov. 5 (there is still time to sign up right here). Be sure to stop by and take a campus tour, attend presentations, check out residence buildings, speak to professors, and so much more! If that isn’t enough incentive already, just know that I will be hanging out in the Center of Excellence pretty much all day to answer your grueling questions! (Please come say hi!)
All this and more is coming up in the next 168 hours! Can I do it? I have no clue! But I am inviting you along for the ride either way!
That’s right, this week I am taking over the @eambassadorsgl Instagram to share my shenanigans with the world. Be sure that you are following so that you don’t miss a minute of this whirlwind of a week! (I’ll also be available to answer all your Glendon related questions via the ‘gram so feel free to slide into my DMs).
À la prochaine,
