Shanna – Dancing the Night Away

Posted March 11th, 2009 by hansene

Dancing the Night Away

This past week has gone by extraordinarily fast. I’ve been busy with homework, work and writing for the paper. Naturally I have been getting few hours of sleep and that always seems to make time go by quicker. However, I don’t think it’s in any way healthy to pass the days half asleep all the time.

I was excited for the weekend, but I had a lot of homework and projects to get done for the next week. So on Friday after work I got home and worked on homework. It’s hard to stay motivated on the weekend, but I had to get things done. Mainly I worked on the musical I am doing for my honors college film writing class. I recommend never doing a musical unless you have lots of time. I’m finding it difficult to work around other people’s schedules, get karaoke version of songs, and figure out how to dub the music over the recording. It is a lot of work! I will be filming next Saturday and I’m positive it won’t be how I imagined, but it will be fun. Above is shown many of the girls in the house and a few of them are in the soon to be AZA musical.

Friday night I went to a women’s conference. They thought I wrote poetry (I don’t know why) and asked me to share a poem. I explained I didn’t know any poems, but I could make something up. In the end I decided to sing a funny version of the Little Mermaid that I’d heard once. It was a little nerve-racking, but I did it. We played some games and then I rushed to a party.

Another co-op called Varsity did a party called the mugger because they serve rootbeer floats. We didn’t stay long, but it was fun to go dancing. Like always, I had to top off the night with a movie and so my friends and I watched “Roman Holiday” with Audrey Hepburn. It was a great night, but 3 a.m. might have been a little late since I had to get up at 8 a.m. the next morning.

Saturday morning I went to the second part of the women’s conference. They had different classes, a motivational speaker, and brunch. I was tired, but the classes were interesting. I had the opportunity to help with a computer class where I showed two old women how to use Powerpoint. To my surprise, one of the women knows my grandparents in Utah! It’s a small world.

After several hours of doing homework, working on the musical, etc.. I went to the co-op Avery’s winter formal. Since I just went dancing the previous night it wasn’t as exciting, but I knew more people this time. The theme was Hollywood and two of my friends dressed up. One was a gangster and the other wore a dress. It was hilarious! As shown to the right.

So my weekend was crazy, but I had a lot of fun. Surprisingly I didn’t finish all of my homework, but something is better than nothing. Now that finals are getting closer this week is dedicated to studying. Above all though, my priority is to first get enough sleep at night!
