Here are two moments captured in my Theatre class. 

Off the top of my head, I love theatre because the wildest dreams can become “reality”, and anything can be expressed with powerful music and stories. 

The picture is the poster of An Evening of Two One-Act Plays which opened at the end of February and returned at March 6, 7, 8. 
It was my first time to run a show as a lighting board operator at Smith. For lighting designers, it had a lot to happen in little time. They didn’t start programming of the lighting until the weekend before the show opened. It’s a lot of hours in a short period of time. Tech designers and crew spent twelve hours on Saturday and Sunday and then at least five hours on weekdays working on those shows. 
Though occasionally strongly stressful, the experiences have always been positive for me. There was a start and I could keep going on.
I miss that day’s smell, a taste of real spring.

My favorite campus view.
One week ago, I watched the groundbreaking BROADWAY MUSICAL AMERICAN IDIOT at Umass-Amherst. I’m not a big fan of Green Day, but hey I don’t have to be actually. Because the play(or song) itself has a lot of meaning and people will associate it with themselves - that’s why I say it is GREAT.
The song Boulevard of Broken Dreams is my favorite. It is kind of bloody brilliant and depressing, but at the same time peaceful. It has so much emotion and sentimental value to let you think…
The play reminds me of the first time when I listened to Green Day’s song. At that time, I was a fifteen-year-old girl and a real beginner of punk. I listened to numbers of rock/punk bands afterwards and thought that Green Day is kind of pop, and not that punk. But so what, from my point of view punk is more of an attitude than of a style.

"In the falling quiet, there was no sky or earth, only snow lifting in the wind, frosting the window glass, chilling the rooms, deadening and hushing the city." ― Truman Capote

Everyone was insanely busy and living under the shadow of finals during the one-week long reading period. I went out of the Neilson Library as a breath. 
The snow was endless. It covered the land as far as I could see. All the world was completely white and the snowflakes were coming down as big as popcorns. When I walked around Seelye Hall, the man who was sweeping the snow said to me:”Welcome to the wonderland!” Warm words from people who I don’t know were like sunlight shining in the gloomy sky.
The photo was taken outside the Neilson Library in the snow.
