|My Scandals cast from 2017|
Other than school, I am very interested in music. I have played guitar since the age of 11 and have loved every minute of it. I've played in several bands and have even professionally recorded in studios. While I don't plan on pursuing music as a career, I try to keep it as prevalent in my life as possible. A way I do this in college is participate in University Sing and Sooner Scandals, a competition in which students write and direct their own mini-musicals and perform them in Holmberg Hall.
As far as TV shows go, I think I've watched the entire series of The Office more than I can count, and it still never gets old. I love funny shows and movies because I like to think of myself as a generally happy person, so why not watch TV shows that make me happy. However, I also enjoy the show Black Mirror, which is about as far from happy and funny as a show can get. It's basically a modern-day Twilight Zone, but a little darker. And by a little, I mean a lot. While the Twilight Zone consists of stories that focus on the weirdness of the situation the characters are in, Black Mirror has you get to know the main character of the episode, throw them into the worst situation you can think of, and just when you think it's over, the writer gut-punches you at the end of the episode with a devastating twist. Rinse and repeat that method for 4 seasons.
So.. that was a little bit about me. I look forward to all this class has to offer and what I will learn!
