Nice End to the Week.
It's a huge relief to have the first draft done now so I won't need to worry about it! Today, we had a guest speaker again for the morning session of class! Today's speaker was Samy Harmoush, a Political Science major that is currently working with Macy's.com as an assistant ... someone who chooses which clothes to buy for next season. He talked to us today not so much about the Presidents, but about one of his own theses he had in college: a speech about marketing, youth, and false needs. It was a very different type of presentation than I had expected, and it was actually very interesting. The fact that he passed out cookies, balloons and gumballs only helped make his presentation more fun.
Well, it took a lot of work, but I'm done with the rough draft now! I only need to worry about the final draft now, and I'm done with all of the work! (except for assorted readings). It was a great knowing that I'm on the track to finishing in good time, without procrastinating.
Tonight, we went to go see the Phantom of the Opera! It was really good! Even though our seats were at the back of the theater, the construction made it easy to see everything that was going on, and the acoustics were awesome also. The music was phenomenal, and the acting was really good also! I loved the set design, with innovative parts such as an actual chandelier that moves, and lots of really unexpected pyrotechnics and other tricks! Thanks to Mr. Ramsey, Mrs. Kronenberg, Mrs. Ishmael, Don and everyone else who helped make this trip possible!
