The Golden Globes were held on Sunday this year and, while I was getting ready for my first day of classes, I decided to watch them! The show was hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler which made me more inclined to watch this year because I find them hilarious. Their opening monologue was extremely funny and I’m glad they didn’t just rip the attendees like Ricky Gervais did in the past.
My favorite part was when Kristen Wiig and Will Ferrell did their little bit while presenting the nominees for their category. I’m surprised I liked it because although I love Kristen Wiig, I usually don’t find Will Ferrell funny but I was impressed. Evidently their bit was done on the spot so bravo for them thinking of it right then and it still being funny!

For my Political Science class, we were given the opportunity to see a play downtown tonight. The play was called “The Syringa Tree” and was a one woman play. The woman who put on the performance is friends with our professor.
The play was 90 minutes long, which is impressive considering there was no intermission so bravo to her for not needing a break and for being able to remember her lines! I remember when I did plays in elementary school and complained about having to learn 30 lines!
The play was through the eyes of a girl living in South Africa during apartheid. This is interesting since this is exactly the topic we are discussing in class so it is interesting to see it tangibly before your eyes.
I really enjoyed the play and hope to go to more in the future!
Before it started!
