Everyday is the same thing for us students. Wake up, go to school, go to practice, do homework, go to sleep and repeat. We all get stuck in ruts every once in awhile, but what can make us feel lively once again? For some of us, caffeine is the way to go. The smell of a coffee shop can easily put my mind at ease and make me feel great even if it is only for a moment.

On Friday night I went to see the ever-anticipated spring play, A Comedy of Errors. The play was directed by the drama teacher, Ms. Amanda Malo, and also had a smaller cast than most plays in the past. I had heard very good things about the play from my classmates who had seen it earlier, and had very high expectations. Needless to say, I was not disappointed. The play followed the story of two sets of identical twins from different towns, who arrived in the same place and kept getting mistaken for one another.
