Things I would like to do in my lifetime:
-Be a part of a protest (like a million person, over run D.C. type of protest)
-Own a talking bird
-Ride a bike along the Underground Railroad trail
-Meet a president
-Live for an extended period of time in London
(I think this is the first female BeefEater in 1000 years)
-See the Great Wall of China, the Great Barrier Reef, and the Pyramids of Giza
-Invent something useful (like a shoe horn)
-Breed a new type of dog
(This is a puggle! It's a pug/beagle mix!)
-Create an award winning recipe
-Get lost in the jungle and find my way out again (like Bear Grylls!)
-Befriend a wild animal
-Use my History major later in life!
I like that most of these have to do with animals or traveling.
What do you want to do?

I went to a play last night titled "The Smell of the Kill".
It was held in the smallest of our theatres, the Bunge, and people had to be turned away because it was so well attended. Jordana Berk '08 directed it and two of my good friends, Daisy Donohue '10 and Michelle Casali '08, were two of the visible three person cast (two other actors were voices off stage and many other talented and amazing people were involved, and I can't wait to spend more time with them all at the upcoming American College Theater Festival). The show is about three women that have gotten together for an evening every month for 12 years because their husbands were friends in college. They are not particularly close, however, and throughout the course of the play we learn that all of them are extremely dissatisfied in some way with their husbands and their lives. Hilarity and mounting tension ensues, and they all have a decision to make when their husbands get accidently locked into a meat locker. It was very well done and completely entertaining. There's nothing like a dark, female-empowering comedy as a way to broaden one's horizons, get one laughing, and escape one's busy day for awhile.
