Bonjour, mes chéris! Here I am again, sitting in the college library, willing my Pulitzer-worthy prose to come to me. While I wait, I might as well tell you what’s poppin’.

“It was only in the theatre that I lived.” -Oscar Wilde Cheerio, my friends! Perhaps you’re wondering why I’m speaking with an English accent. Good question. Well. This past week, in a bit of a state of frenzy and panic, that was induced by something many refer to as “mid-terms”, I began thinking about somebody whom I absolutely adore: Oscar Wilde; specifically, Oscar Wilde and … Continue reading Oscar Wilde’s Everyday Tips For A Splendidly Theatrical Existence
