The Weekender: A New Appreciation!
Good Sunday, Monday or whenever you get around to reading this, Bloggy Friends!
Well, let me tell you something - I was so glad when Friday finally rolled around this week! I am super excited to be back in school, but I am nowhere near used to the grueling schedule yet. By the end of the week I was one tired Mo' Fo' - and that ain't no lie!
We made the most of our weekend together by being lazy, taking care of chores and seeing a show in Bristol called "Welcome Home, Marian Anderson." It was a show that told the story of a crucial time in the life of great opera/spiritual singer, Marian Anderson. Marian Anderson was the first black singer to give a concert on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in 1939. I really liked the play and was especially impressed by the lead actress, Vanessa Shaw, who both wrote the script and played the title role. You go, Girl!
There really isn't much more to say about me. I am ready to buckle down for another week at school. I have a lot of reading to do and have to figure out how to juggle everything so that I can finish it all in time. I'll do it!
I hope you guys have an awesome start to the week. With every passing day the first of spring inches closer and closer! Are you guys as ready for it as I am??
Love you all!
