And the Madness continues

posted in Brandi Porter

With what seemed like a large portion of the northern east coast in chaos, petty confrontation still managed to arise in my college community. In the time that we didn’t have power I had a confrontation with an employee at Wawa. After the hurricane had passed, my friends and I decided to go out for […]

Power Outage Madness

posted in Brandi Porter

I am still trying to figure out where my life is going. I had an informational meeting with Teach for America and I partially fell in love. The program places recent college graduates as teachers in under-resourced urban and rural public schools. Now as I said, I love my job and I’d love to work […]

Wisdom and Inspiration

posted in Brandi Porter

Hello everyone, sorry for the blog delay! These past few weeks at Lafayette have been super crazy! It is hard even to think about all the events that have occurred since my last blog. Well my wisdom teeth are out and the surgery wasn’t painful but the aftermath was. I came out of surgery with […]

I Love My Job

posted in Brandi Porter

Thank goodness midterms are over! This experience has proved that my schedule is flawed because my midterms were back to back. Besides my throbbing hand after the first exam, my mind was warped. My music and history literature exam was all essays. Even though he gave us a template of what the exam was going […]

Sleep is a Distant Memory these Days

posted in Brandi Porter

It’s interesting that I’m at Lafayette and my mom is in London for work. It makes me miss the city lifestyle that I took for granted.  I will hopefully be going back for New Years with my best friend since middle school. We’ve been saving for this for what feels like forever. I really cannot […]

Back on the Hill

posted in Brandi Porter

Back at Lafayette and truth be told, it is bittersweet. I’m back on a hill instead of waking up in the city or in my case, the suburbs. There are no sounds of buses, cars, international accents or random fireworks outside my window.  Now I hear crickets at night, and I’m seeing stinkbugs! The hall […]

My time is running out here in London. This was the last full week of timetable, which means the last week of full classes, which means no more assessments, performance stress, and early morning starts. Wow, soon my pillow will be my new best friend. :-J It is strange because there are days that just […]

I want to start off by saying that I feel as if I should be on summer vacation! I can’t believe that everyone is pretty much off school and I have two more months to go. That being said I am happy that I have two more months with an extremely talented bunch of individuals. […]

Euro trip and the Last Term at Mountview

posted in Brandi Porter

I’m still living in London, but my two-week Euro trip is complete. My mom and I traveled trough Paris, Venice, Florence, Rome, Milan and London. It’s crazy to think how close and inexpensive it is to get around from London. When I think of taking a trip abroad it seems to cost thousands of dollars […]

Finally it is Easter break! I think these next two and a half weeks are well deserved for all of us at Mountview! The killer term two has ended and now we still have tons of work to do! How deceiving! First off, I have to complete my actors working notebook, which is a 3,000-5,000-word […]
