Blog 1: The youth Christmas skit has come a long way. We quickly claimed our parts and acted to the song. I am a homeless person looking for food. The other members are playing a crazy person, a drunk person, a robber, etc. In the end, the person playing Jesus will come hug and accept us all, helping us through our trials.
Blog 2: The teenagers and the children are still singing the song “Do You Hear What I Hear?”. We have certainly gotten better at singing it. Our timing is right and we are now more aware of our parts. However, now the main problem is that some people aren’t singing loud enough. This is a problem due to the lack of motivation and participation of the members.
Blog 3: Next week is finals and I am currently trying to figure out a plan so I do not procrastinate. I have decided that I will work on my Philosophy take-home essays over the weekend so that next week, I will only need to study for my first 2 tests and work on my portfolio. I have also finished my final essay for INQ, getting one thing out of the way. This week has been stressful trying to get everything together. However, the week is almost over and I was able to manage!
Blog 4: I was able to attend a seminar that focused on women immigrants who worked in farms. We watched a documentary called “Rape in the Fields”. It went in depth with the hardships these women endure everyday being sexually abused. These women are in a position that feels hopeless, where going to authorities can potentially put them in danger of being deported yet keeping quiet also puts them in a position of losing themselves. It was gruesome to hear and heartbreaking to learn that this has been going on for decades with no justice served.
