In which, Frances flips her lid about having to leave The Hill

As a freshman I imagined my dance team "senior game" going down with a solid crew of wonderful friends, performing a fun, crowd-rousing piece (of my own choreography) and getting a little emotional in the moments before stepping onto the court. In an unexpected twist, this is all exactly what happened last weekend.
By the time you're a senior, pretty much every class event includes wine. Between "Senior Dinner" (aka networking with alums) on Friday night, and going to my Chaucer professor's house to discuss "Everyman" on Saturday, my weekend was basically all wine, plus lots of interesting Real World discussions with Real Adults (on everything from the power of social media to Kenyon trashcan parties in the 80s). Read on for more highlights.
(This is what came up when I googled "Kenyon College wine")
The good thing about Gambier being so small is that all your professors live a short walk away. So when they ask "Hey, instead of class on Friday, do you want to all come to my house and make pizza?" you can enthusiastically say yes. Instead of a day sitting under hot lights taking picture after picture, my stop motion animation class spent two hours making pizza, looking at pig guts, and watching Peter and the Wolf with our professor.

Figuring out the most important thing I've learned at Kenyon is difficult. For me, that thing has little to do with the classroom...
