Filming and Finals

Thursday (the 21st) marks the first day of Fall term finals; for me, finals week includes taking Math and Chem tests, handing in a History research paper, and reciting twenty memorized lines from Othello. These take place over the course of Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, so I only have one or two subjects each day (which gives me lots of time to prepare for the next one!)

The one class of mine missing from finals week is Chinese, because my teacher will be out of town during the time we were scheduled to meet. However, we still had a final project which was due on Tuesday. The assignment was to make a movie with three other classmates— we were required to use as many vocab words and grammar structures learned this term as possible, but other than that, we were free to get creative with the plot line and editing. My group made a movie about four friends opening a restaurant, titled “四个人, 四个看法, 一家饭馆, 彻底失败?” (“Four people, four ideas, one restaurant, complete disaster?”)

Here are a few stills from the movie!

About Rachel

Hometown: Akron, OH Class: 2015 Favorite Restaurant in Town: D2 Java Favorite Assembly: Opening Assembly Favorite Spot on Campus: couches on the third floor of the library- it's a perfect place to get work done and has an awesome view of the academy building Favorite D-Hall Dessert: Exeter Bars of course! Although birthday cake and ice cream is a close second... Hey everyone! My name’s Rachel, and I’m 4-year senior at Exeter. I’m from Akron, Ohio, but currently live with thirty three other girls and three faculty families in Amen Hall (the best dorm on campus!). Like most students at Exeter, I arrived my Prep Fall with no idea of what I wanted to "be" when I grew up, and in the past three years I've developed interests in places I never knew I would, such as in playing the piano, creative writing, and Chinese language studies. Besides just within the dorm, I’ve found other homes at Exeter, in ESSO (Exeter Social Service Organization) clubs such as Active Minds and Tutoring for Children, and in the admissions office giving tours. Through Exeter I've had several off-campus opportunities as well, including trips to Silicon Valley and China, and this winter will participate in an Exeter trimester abroad program in Taiwan! I hope you guys can learn a little more about me and the other bloggers and about what it's like here, from a current student’s perspective, through our blog entries. And, of course, we hope to meet you on campus one day! Go Big Red!
