Talent Show, P-Day, and Radio Show!

Friday: The MLK Society kicked off P-Day weekend by putting on a talent show in McCarthy Arts Center. There were a lot of different performances from people singing original songs and covers of Adele's "Make You Feel My Love", Rihanna's "Take A Bow" (which Gabbi sang), Jason Mraz's "I'm Yours" mashup with "Somewhere Over the Rainbow",The Beatles "Blackbird", and other artists to people dancing hip hop and Irish step dancing.  Unfortunately, my camera died really early into the show, but I was able to get a little bit of the first act, which was Sleepless Knights (one of the three singing groups on campus) singing Gotye's "Somebody I Used to Know." **Also, I just found this video on Youtube that does an awesome mashup of all of the acts here. Marla, who sang a unique rendition of "I'm Sexy and I Know It" on the ukelele, ended up winning the talent show. You can see her whole performance here.


Saturday: Preparation Day, known as P-Day, is our last day to have fun right before finals and all the studying starts.  It started with the Trike Race at 11am. Then, from 1-5pm, the 3s field was bumping with inflatable obstacle courses and a tent full of foods from local restaurants including Skinny Pancake, Ben and Jerry's, Papa Franks, and a lot more other food places. Also, bands were playing outside on the fields while all of this was going on. After that, there were comedian acts in the Ross Sports Center, which included SMC's Kit Rivers. Following her really funny act, Alliot had a midnight breakfast. Here are some pictures and videos from throughout the day:

As a tradition of P-Day, people make their own P-day jerseys for it. My friends and I did a 12 on the back of our shirts for 2012 and then did our nicknames underneath of it.

 Sunday: Brendan and I usually have our radio show from 12-1pm but the person before us asked if we could cover her timeslot, so we had to wake up early after a long fun filled day on Saturday. It was cool because Brendan's roommate, Darren Glover, is a rapper and we always play his songs on the show. Today, Darren stopped by the show to share about how his two favorite rappers are Drake and Kid Ink and he also talked about how he began rapping and what is the inspiration behind his music. Here's a song by him below!

This was the perfect way to wrap up the end of the school year. I just have finals that start this Friday and go until next Thursday, then I'll be moving out. As the end of the year kind of winds down, I thought it would be cool to share some of my top moments from freshmen year, so that post will be coming up sometime soon :)
