Today was such a busy day. In the morning, we had field day and cleaned the whole ship like we did in Mystic. All the students were excited and nervous for the afternoon that would bring phone calls home. We had a busy day, and it didn’t end until that late that night. The crew and students were given characters we would be playing that evening in a murder mystery game. Some people were playing crew on a ship and some students played different types of wealthy people from all over the world. After parent phone calls, we got into our costumes made up of random borrowed articles of clothing around the ship. Some of the costumes were well thought out and looked awesome. Thane, Jasper, and Morgan all shaved their beards into mutton chops and then even shaved parts of his head. Our goal of the game was to figure out who killed the captain along with individual tasks we were given. Some people were secretly spying, including my character. Each of us had different pieces of information we needed to find in order to complete the game. We spent that evening talking to one another in character and trying to figure out who did what. Many characters were killed, and many things went unsolved. It was a fun break from our normal routine and it was really fun to get all dressed up in normal clothes. I do not believe we solved the murder, but we had tons of fun trying.
