High Flying Action and New Means of Travel

Busy, busy, busy! Run, run, run! That’s always feels like for me as my interns and I finish our last few weeks at HOMTV. For this weeks assignment, I covered quite possibility the most important story since I started my internship: I was able to get a backstage pass to film the practice performance of Cirque Du Soleil’s Varekai while the show was at Michigan State University.

Varekai-1For what I saw the show looks amazing. The costumes were very colorful, the music was hypnotic, and the acrobatics were very, very, VERY pulse-pounding. I saw a girl hang on a trapeze 3 stories high by the back of her head! Gosh I get the shivers just thinking about it! I give the performers major respect for taking such extremes just to entertain the masses.


On a less exciting note, after months of searching for a replacement for my 12 year-old rusted Ford Taurus (bliss her motor) my parents were able to get a good deal on a 2006 Pontiac Vibe. It’s a little touchy to steer than my old Taurus but I’ll manage.

What my new chick magnet looks like!
