Meet Thaddeus Kaszuba, an official CAPA blogger in London for fall 2017:
University: University of Minnesota- Twin Cities
Major: BFA Acting Program
Study abroad location: London, England
Internship or volunteer placement: N/A
What are you most excited for during your study abroad semester?
I am most excited about finding little subcultures and the lesser known spots of London where the local culture embeds itself.
What are three of your hobbies and interests?
One of my biggest hobbies is gaming. I'm huge on video games and game art. The topic that I am most interested in is World War II, and I am very excited to see some artifacts abroad! I am also very interested in documentary films and the investigative process behind them.
What’s one personal goal you hope to achieve while abroad?
My personal goal I wish to achieve abroad is to build a daily routine for myself along the lines of a solid morning and evening routine that will include the city of London in some way in that ritual.
What’s one professional goal you hope to achieve while abroad?
Professionally I hope to make lasting connections with my teachers and friends abroad so that I can have connections in the global artistic community. Hopefully, this will open up doors for international collaboration and give me a reason to go abroad again.
What can we look forward to reading about in your posts?
In my posts, you can expect to read about how I perceive environments around me. Although that may sound very mystical, I tend to try and write about tactile sensations when I experience something so that hopefully readers can catch a glimpse of my experience translated physically.
Anything else you’d like to say to people reading for the first time?
This is my first time writing for others in a heightened institutionalized setting, and I am very excited to see how people perceive my experience. I am much more interested in the conversation that arises out of what I write rather than the documentation of what I have done. Enjoy!
