A D-Xirable RockU Student Blogger

I was asked to be a student blogger for Rockhurst University. My sorority mother, Lauren H., and I both decided to do it. I'm excited about it. I figured since it's my last semester at RockU that I should do it and try something new.

For those that don't know me, my name is LaTasha B. I'm a senior at RockU and my major is English - Writing. I have a triple minor in Political Science, Theology, and Theater Arts. You may be thinking, "Why doesn't she just have a double major and double minor?" Well, the only minor that I would want to double major in is Theater Arts and that's not offered as a major at RockU. So, I have one major and three minors. In all honesty, I'm a nice and laid back kind of girl. So, please ask questions and leave comments! :)

Basically my life at RU has been pretty busy. I'm currently directing a play called Booby Trap by Ed Monk for our Theater Department. It's a working progress and it's a lot harder than I imagined it to be. I really enjoy my cast though. For the most part, they show up to rehearsals on time and most of them have their lines memorized. Also, it's been fun working with our production team. (Susan, Paula, Sarah B., and Grace C.) Plus, I'm getting help from Roberto P. on military mannerisms and behavior which is really nice for my show. He's been a pleasure to work with. We have two weeks until the show opens and I'm really nervous about it. Other than that, things are going pretty smoothly with the help of my cast and the production team. I have my first run thru this Sunday from 4-6pm. It will be my first time seeing the whole play together. My rehearsals are split into random different scenes so I only get to see pieces of it at a time on different days of the week. Seeing it all together will help me figure out the things that I need to fix.

Auditions for the musical are coming up next week. Monday and Tuesday from basically 4-6pm. I get to be the assistant director for it and I'm really excited about it. This time I get to work with Susan which is really nice because I won't have all of the responsibility this time around.

My classes are heavy reading this semester, which I shouldn't be surprised since I'm an English major. I'm taking 5 classes this semester and 2 theater practicums. My classes are: American Literature, Shakespeare, Senior Thesis, Directing, and Religion, Ethnicity, and Race. All of my classes are towards my major and minors. For my Senior Thesis class I get to work with Dr. Miller and basically write poetry. I love writing poetry so I love my Senior Thesis class. I'm literally working on a poetry collection about my life for the class. Directing class is like a guide for the directing process. Any problems that come up, we tell Susan. The other classes are cool, just a lot of reading.


Lastly, I'm a member and the secretary of the Delta Xi Phi Multicultural Sorority aka DXP. We have Alex's Lemonade Stand this week. From what I know, it's going pretty well. We have been getting a lot of generous donations. Thank you kindly to those that supported it!

Well, that's all I have for now!
