week 2 was all about RSC and more RSC... we were asked to come up with a business idea for RSC which could actually be implemented into a live project..after hours of storming and norming...we decided to come up with a mobile phone app for them which would convert the voice user input into elizabethan language....sounds pretty cool huh!! well thats cos it is.....neway..i dont remember much of what we did during this week.. except that we went to stratford... the birthplace of shakespeare... to get some inspiration for our business plan and also see how RSC operates......it was the wednesday of week 2 when we went to stratford.....and the moment we landed there...we thought... to hell with the inspiration!!!.....lets actually enjoy this place!!... the ladies were ofcourse busy with their shopping...Rads wanted to buy a blazer for herself....as for us men...we just enjoyed the beautiful sunny afternoon, ate ice creams and took pictures.....the morning was spent exploring the place.....and in the afternoon we had an amazing session at RSC which was all about learning to teach shakespeare...which was followed by a few rounds of beer.....the RSC guys were generous enough to actually let us see one of their performances of the twelfth night!!!... and what a performance it was....i only understood about 40% of what the actors were saying...yet i looooved it......and surpisingly enough..for most of us...it was our twelfth night in england....!!!
we got back around 10 pm that night and next morning we had to be ready with our RSC pitches and present it in front of the panel.....after a long sleepless night...we finally managed to finish our presentation just in the nick of time....and i was asked to present from our group.....after watching 6 presentations before ours...we knew that we had some seeeeerious competition in front of us and i was actually scared to do my 1st presentation... but i guess we didnt do so bad... we did manage to finish third in the competition....we got the bronze. and we started 'performing'.. it was the first feather in the cap for The Catapults...
We were happy with our accomplishment.. and that meant that it was time for a party over the weekend..well we had the freshers party at the rootes..which wasnt so bad..!!
a week welll spent!!!
