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. This will be a shorter post than most, as I will dedicate most of my time to writing the entire summer general retrospective … Continue reading Week 6 Done! Last Week Retrospective
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!
I came here to JW Chen's seeking some really good Chinese/Taiwanese food from recommendations from many people. Not only was this recommended to me by friends who went to University of Notre Dame, but also from my colleagues here at Culver. I had previously came by South Bend on a Monday, and to my chagrin, … Continue reading Tuesday Thoughts: JW Chen’s (the closest thing to home in South Bend, IN)
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!
Some musings before the night as I watched an amazing lighting or lightning display.

This week also featured July 4th, which meant that we had to set up a concert and flag presentation in the morning, and then strike into late at night. As I sit here, … Continue reading Week 3!
Content Warning: Mental Health, Anxiety, Depression One of the reasons why I don’t share about this that often is that mental health, is often a stigma in East Asian cultures as well as the church. That being said, it shouldn’t be this hard to write about these things because, the more it’s talked about, the … Continue reading June 16th, 2017
Once again, it's Saturday, which means another week has gone by. This week, was the last week of the first "trimester" which means next week there will be new classes, of which I will be teaching one, but more on that later. This week, I continued with my other duties as a technician and worked … Continue reading 2 Down, 4 More!
I turned 22 today! It was the first birthday I've celebrated without any family or close friends. Many have asked: "Did anything special?" I shrug, and say nope. Today was just like any other day, went to work, went back and slept. I think it's a privilege to be able to celebrate it with friends … Continue reading 22!
Today is Saturday! My first "official" week at Culver is done! As an Upper Camp Theater Staff/Instructor, my days are pretty routine. Everyday I wake up at around 7:30, get to breakfast by 7:50, get to the theater/my office by 8:15, and there my day begins. In this first week, I mainly focused on getting … Continue reading 1 Week Down, 5 More to Go!
