One of the greatest debates I had with myself when I got in was about how religious this university is, and whether it will be awkward not to be religious on campus. Vanderbilt is a secular university, not affiliated with any religion or denomination. On campus, we have complete freedom to participate in any religious...
My friend E. had sent me an email asking me whether I was still in Nashville on December 11-12, and due to Finals, I replied with a yes. She then asked me whether I would be interested in playing a show. Of course! I can't believe that my first ever non-classical music performance was for Andrew Peterson's show "Behold the Lamb of God"!

Therefore, despite the copious amounts of papers and exams that we all have this week, we decided to take a break and celebrate.

After giddily accepting the invite to Malaysian Night on Facebook the day before, I was so excited when my friends and I actually stepped into the SLC on Saturday night! The Malaysian Student Association at Vanderbilt (MSAV) put on a night of festivities, food, and fun in celebration of Eid, a religious holiday for Muslims, and Merdeka, the Malaysian Independence Day!
