I love all of my classes here :-)
On Sunday, I went on a backstage tour of the National Theatre for my Performance in History class. It was really cool, I had never seen anything like it! Then, I was doing some readings for that same drama class and there was a whole section talking about Paris and the Paris Opera House, where we had JUST been. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Paris Opera House. In class on Tuesday, she spent 10 minutes talking about the Paris opera house and how it was known as the epitome of a theatre building and several new theatres were built in the same style (although none can beat it in my opinion). I was almost to the point of tears when she started showing black and white pictures of the opera house stage, architectural plans, and opening night. The essay I have to write for this class will actually be kind of interesting to write (and I think I can work in the Paris Opera House a little bit!).
On a different subject, the Queen visited Queen Mary today! I think it was on a different campus and I had class at the time, but that is a huge honor to QM! Very cool :-) Heres an article on it if you're interested: http://www.qmul.ac.uk/media/news/items/smd/91586.html?utm_source=Homepage&utm_medium=Shoutbox&utm_campaign=Slide1
