Top 5 Tips of How to Survive STUNT in the Future

The month of February is a time to celebrate Valentine’s Day and Black History Month, but at Wesleyan February takes on special significance. Yes, as of February 6th STUNT month is upon us once again. As a sophomore I do not have an incredible amount of experience when it comes to participating in STUNT, but I still have some helpful tips for ensuring that STUNT month is as smooth going and enjoyable as it should be.
1. DON’T STRESS
Even before the all-night paint sessions and hours long rehearsals begin, many people immediately begin to focus on how stressful this month will be. The only thing that I can say to that is DO NOT STRESS! If you go into STUNT calm and stay relaxed, you will be perfectly fine.
2. Free Time is Work Time.
During the general school year any free time that you have is usually used to spend time doing whatever your heart desires. Whether that be surfing Facebook, watching YouTube videos, or catching up on Hulu. Despite the fun of all of these free time activities, during STUNT you should use your free time to do any work that you have to do. With the paint sessions and rehearsals, the more work you get done the better. This leads to number . . .
3. Don’t drop the ball on Academics.
STUNT is not an excuse to not attend classes and to stop doing your work, because if you were to totally mentally check out this month you will not do well. Make sure that you stay on top of your school work by maintaining some semblance of the same schedule of doing work and attending classes that you had prior to this hectic month.
4. Stay Healthy.
It’s easy to not sleep and not eat when you have so much to do, but those bad habits are a cocktail for immune deficiency. The last thing that you want this month is to catch a cold. So, try to eat during meal times and get as much sleep as you can, even when you have all-nighters.
5. Practice Makes Perfect.
Within the cast and volunteers for STUNT there are varying levels of commitment to the musical itself. However, it is important to remember that your class STUNT committee has put a lot of time and effort into creating an award winning STUNT, so it is only fair that you put in that same amount of effort. So, if you are in your class’ STUNT don’t forget to practice your dances, songs, and lines; and if you are not in your STUNT, then at least show some dedication by helping out with painting and making props.
All in all, the most important thing to remember is that STUNT is about fun and sisterhood, so there’s no reason to stress out over it. You will survive the month of February, and hey, maybe your class will have a nice trophy to show for it.
