You’ve Got This Dude!

Thursday quote: “All the adversity I’ve had in my life, all my troubles and obstacles, have strengthened me . . . You may not realize it when it happens, but a kick in the teeth may be the best thing in the world for you.” – Walt Disney –

I know some of you are feeling like you have been kicked in the teeth for the last few days with big assignments that needed to be handed in before the semester ends and finals week on your heels. You have made it this far so don’t give up just yet.

As you are reading this, close your eyes and take a deep breath! Everything will be all right. You have one more week left and then you can catch up on as many Netflix episodes you want and sleep as late as you can. Don’t see Finals week as a mountain in front of you but rather a celebration of the semester you have had. In all your classes you learned something new and ‘m sure you can say that you have met a diverse group of new and fun people. This is your chance to embrace what you have learned and share it with your professors.

I have had a blast sharing my college experience and semester activities with you and I hope you at least learned something new. I am looking forward to come back spring semester and continue sharing fun and new things with all of you.

If you have anything you would like me to post about, please comment below and I’ll do my best to investigate and share it.

Enjoy a well-deserved break and show these final exams who’s boss.

You’ve got this dude!

One part student and one part friend, two parts explorer and four parts drama queen. When you put it all together you’d have a nice apple pie and I just made myself very hungry.

My name is Madlené and I am from South Africa. I have been privileged enough to be able to experience the American culture and get to know a variety of amazing people living here. I enjoy travelling and discovering new places but above all I love meeting new people and learning about their culture while sharing mine as well.

In my free time I enjoy reading a good book or two and of course I am addicted to Netflix (Not my fault . . . it’s those 10 seconds they give you to choose whether you want to go on with the show or stop and I seem to miss clicking the stop button every time). I love writing songs and performing in front of others. Over the weekend I like hanging out with my friends, going to see theatre performances and discovering new places to hike, eat or just to have fun.

 I am majoring in Performance Theatre and want to pursue a career in Musical Theatre.

I am excited to share my college experience with you and I hope you enjoy this journey with me.
