Afrikaans word of the week: Aartappelskyfies/slaptjips –  Or as you know them, french fries. Depending on how proper you want to be, aartappelskyfies is the pure Afrikaans word whereas slaptjips is the local slang and what you would ask for in restaurants.Those of you who know me may have heard this word before and you can’t disagree, it’s just so much fun to say.

Hey Raptors! Hope your midterm week didn’t get the better of you. Enjoy your spring break this week, chillax and regroup yourself again. With a few more weeks ahead of you and a lot of studying, I thought I’d share something new I discovered MC offered. Except for the fact that they give us a variety of research tools to do assignments with e.g, the library and online website, they also have a playlist on the website. So when you want to listen to some music and don’t have your cellphone with you, feel free to enjoy one of the many benefits MC has.

Here is a step by step to get to the music:

Madlene Nel

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.
