In other news...I'm selling my car soon! Anyone interested? It won't be till November when things die down a little for me, but it's a pretty good car. I'm going to miss the bumper stickers. The reason I'm selling is because my Grandma, my Dad's mom, decided to sell her car, a barely-used Toyota Camery with 30,000 miles on it, and since it's nicer than my car and just got lots of repairs done, I'm buying it. The reason she's selling, you ask? Check it out!!!
That's right, a convertible baby-blue limited edition Bug!!!!!!!! I keep telling Grandma, she's going to have to come visit me now instead of the other way around, just so we can drive around in it!

|The SMC team, with Champ!|
|The memory banner that was carried on the walk|
We had to wait for the light-up parts to arrive because of some sort of glitch, but they did arrive thanks to a dedicated volunteer who drove halfway to Albany to get them!
The volunteers could tell right away that the SMC Drama Club was an enthusiastic bunch. We were recruited to hold the big banner telling Burlington what everyone was walking for; we were first in the lineup right behind a police escort! They were glad to have us up front; our group and a high school team behind us cheered and got the attention of shoppers and diners all around on Church street, and got cars to honk for us :)

|the writers took a break around midnight, and again at 2!|
|Chris's group had a play about college kids in relationships, including a big plush fish and a Shakespeare-wannabe. |
|Marla's group had a play about a girl who dreams she's part of her favorite TV shows and YouTube clips!|
The performance itself went really well! There was a pretty good turnout, as usual for this event, since it's free, it's short, and it's always funny. The first group had some unfortunate glass breaking onstage, which was actually pretty entertaining since no one got hurt and it happened to Ellen twice within the skit! Both plays were enjoyed by the audience, though the TV show references and YouTube clips of the first play were more appreciated by the college level audience.
After the show, we gave out Red Bull awards in front of the audience- "The Pen is Mighty" award to the strongest writer group; the "I'll Make a Man Out of You" award to the director who stepped it up the most; the "Most Outrageous Character" award to the actor who played up their part the best; and the "Most Enthusiastic Participant" award to, well, the most dedicated and enthusiast person involved! Strike was a quick affair and we gathered everyone afterwards for paper plate awards- besides the Red Bull awards, Rachel and I stayed awake and sane making everyone a paper plate award. It was a nice end to the day.
|paper plate awards...AKA fun with glitter glue, sharpies, and stickers!|

Saint Mike's is really a laid-back kind of place; there aren't really raging issues that affect students unless they care to get involved with some of the more controversial groups, such as the pro-life club or other political groups. We are very open to different opinions and all kinds of people though, and unless you wanted to be involved in things like that it wouldn't affect you. Most of the clubs on campus are for fun and for those who are reall interested, so it's all about what you make it!
Sometimes people go home on the weekend but there is always a lot to do every weekend so the majority of students stay at school! Before every weekend we get an email from our wonderful Grace Kelly, Director of Student Activities and Assistant Dean of Students, listing fun events the residence halls host, what the menu is on the late-night BBQ in the quad area for the weekend, and what's going on in the area. There are always a lot of events to attend and new things to try out!
