Rewind & Review: #84


~Easter weekend happened. I stayed on campus and worked at the desk a lot and got a ton of homework done. I also watched half a dozen movies.
~I've started writing an essay about why Severus Snape is the actual worst.
~I had a Shakespeare group project - we had to perform a scene from one of the plays we read. My group chose a tavern scene from Henry IV, Part I and we performed it in our school's bistro.
~My university's annual film festival was last Saturday. It was freezing cold that day, but we managed the hour-long wait in line to get good seats. Some of the films were really good; others, frankly, stunk.
~Last week of classes has passed. I'm gearing up for finals week and move-out. But I managed to film a book haul video yesterday! Check it out at the bottom of the post.
