I remember writing that time flew by. It did and it unfortunately still does. It is incredible how fast everything goes, but also how intense every single day is.
I reached the end of my fifth week at Canterbury and everything is different again! We started rehearsing for the absolutely hilarious musical „How to succeed in business without really trying“ and let me tell you: the cast knows how to succeed in a musical. It is amazing to see them block the scenes and work on the songs – and to be among them for a few scenes!
But as we started the rehearsals, Golf season ended as fast as it had begun. I had been learning golf for four weeks and played in two matches. My best score is a 66 with a par on the hardest hole 😀 . You can’t imagine how happy I am about that!
The first Art Club meeting is scheduled today, followed by an international students meeting. I had tryouts for Model UN – no results yet. I am officially in the Canterbury Speech Team. We had our first French Club meeting a few weeks ago – with absolutely fantastic food! And I would absolutely love to join the debate team too (I didn’t ask yet). And I decided that I would write an independent project about Marc Chagall’s „White Crucifixion“, which can be found in the Art Institute of Chicago.
Where we were with the sophomore class. It was impressive! We took a boat tour through Chicago and had lunch on that boat. Afterwards we visited the Art Institute of Chicago and had lectures from faculty members of Canterbury. It was incredible. I loved that day! Afterwards we went to this Greek restaurant. They just kept bringing more food.
Bad thing about the trip: half of the sophomore class was sick after that. E coli. But almost everyone is better now. Still: Get better soon!
New friends, new experiences, new opinions, new ideas, new techniques, new projects, new inspiration. I couldn’t be happier. My life feels like a piece of art!
