Our cruise was set to leave Vienna the next day at around midnight, which meant we had a whole day still to explore. Today's itinerary for myself, included a tour of the (Kunsthistorisches Museum) Museum of Fine Arts in the Museum Quartier and a bike tour along the Danube. I had initially been signed up … Continue reading Danube Discoveries: Day 5 (Still in Vienna)
Culver Summer School & Camps Retrospective 2017
It's now been adequate time since I left Culver and I've been thinking about writing a retrospective on my experience there. Personally, I felt like I grew a great deal mentally and spiritually during the six weeks and have had my life permanently changed as a result of my short tenure at Culver. I am … Continue reading Culver Summer School & Camps Retrospective 2017
Danube Discoveries: Day 4 (Vienna Round Two)
After enjoying breakfast at the hotel, we gathered our things and boarded the river cruise van to take us to the river Danube where we would board our ship. Luckily, despite what the welcome packet described, we were able to enter our rooms and get settled as soon as we boarded. Our room is quite … Continue reading Danube Discoveries: Day 4 (Vienna Round Two)

Our second day in Prague, day 3 of the entire trip, we had arranged a three-hour van tour of Prague, designed for us to see the various parts and historical areas of Prague while also giving opportunities to stop and take a gander. While Prague is indeed a "walking" city, having a van allowed … Continue reading Danube Discoveries: Day 3 (Passing through Prague)
Danube Discoveries: Day 2 (Passing through Prague)
I'm going to point out now, that most of these posts will be backdated, due to the fact that there is spotty wireless service everywhere. I am doing my best in trying to update about my travels more and more often. Just know that I will write as much as I can, and that I … Continue reading Danube Discoveries: Day 2 (Passing through Prague)
Danube Discoveries: Day 1 (Getting to Vienna)
After a pretty lackluster night's sleep at the Best Western, I hung out at the hotel till around 12:30 before checking out and heading to the airport. I was actually quite surprised at the size of the International Terminal at O'Hare. It felt small as compared to other US international airports that I had been … Continue reading Danube Discoveries: Day 1 (Getting to Vienna)
Week 6 Done! Last Week Retrospective
Today is Sunday (in Vienna), thus I'm due for another week retrospective. Last week being my last week at Culver, meant that it was both busy and exciting at the same time.

Week 5 Done! One more to Go!
This week was essentially tech/hell week. With only a couple days left before our opening next Wednesday, the days have been filled with getting work done to get the show ready. With being tech/hell week, I finished my lighting focus as well as finished writing light cues today (Saturday). It's been a tiring and stressful … Continue reading Week 5 Done! One more to Go!
Week 4! 2/3 Done!
This week was a more relaxed week, relatively speaking. Went to South Bend for an appointment with a doctor about some back and knee pain (also had Chinese food there), chaperoned a trip to Chicago for international students, worked with tech students for the show, focused the lights, and taught my last week of actual … Continue reading Week 4! 2/3 Done!
