A Toast to the Class of 2020

I have always tried to glean some silver lining out of hardship, but it seems facetious to do so when the world is still very much in the thick of these trying times. That said, I think we can all agree that this semester has ended with the gravitas of a deflating balloon (from the...

You Deserve Happiness

Ever since coming to Arcadia, I have had an immense love for planners! During this tough time, it is very easy to become overwhelmed with course work and keeping up with your own self-care.   My advice is to plan a lot or a little—whatever works for you—just give yourself some...

Bridging the Distance

Beyond the obvious fear and anxiety that comes from a global pandemic, all over people have been mourning the loss of various events needing to be canceled in order to combat the further spread of coronavirus. Being a final semester senior, I too feel the sting of not being able to...

Feed Your Spirit

During this time, things are a bit overwhelming, and certain things may be triggers for anxiety. However, I have so many things that I feel grateful for. I am grateful to safely be back home in Florida. I am grateful to be able to move my body outside to do home workouts. I am...

Dance All Knight

A few weeks ago, before our lives got flipped upside down, Arcadia hosted its very first THON™ to raise money for kids with cancer. My roommates, Lydia Mossuto and Kelly Muntzenberger, convinced me to attend, and all I can say is: It did not disappoint.  There were games, food,...

Out of the Audience and Into the Spotlight

For many years, cosplay has been my outlet for self-expression and embracing different aspects of my identity (I wrote a blog post dedicated to my cosplay journey here!).

How to Handle a Burnout

I overheard a professor once saying that the majority of students at Arcadia balance a job, internship, and full-time classes. It is funny because I myself have taken on that load, and I know that I often get burned out. Having been there, I’ve got a few tips for you on handling burnout...

The Process of Production: From Script to Scene

Let’s wind the clock back to the end of the fall semester. While most students were cramming for finals and chipping away at projects, I was focused on another enterprise. It was days before the semester ended, the rain had just picked up, and I needed all hands on deck in a graveyard....
