A mere nineteen days ago thousands of Buckeyes donned their graduation gowns and their fanciest caps to grab their degrees. To be honest, when I sat down I thought it’d been at least a month. Post-grad is weird. Personally, I’m not having the easiest time processing this transition just yet. I’m still in my “Netflix all day” stages of relaxation with only fleeting ideas of a plan for my future swirling around in my mind. Although I’m choosing not to […]
It’s crazy to think that I’ve already gone to my last first football game, performed in my first show of the school year and started rehearsals for my final Dance Downtown. When everyone got back to campus I actually felt old. I was walking through a sea of 18 year olds with their families and I was just in awe of the simple fact that I was in their shoes three years ago. It’s hard to see it when it’s […]
Warning: This is a rather lengthy post but it is so, so worth it. It’s been about a two months since we returned to Columbus from Salvador, Bahia. In that time I’ve completed my third year of undergrad and jumpstarted my senior project… my senior project. Already. We stepped foot onto campus at a time that shows no mercy—the end of the semester—and with that said, I hadn’t been able to write about the most momentous experience of my life thus […]
How is it even possible that I am laying in my bed back home in Chicago finally relaxing for the first time since winter break? It feels like I just went through orientation yesterday, how am I finished with my junior year of college? I was just rocking my only Ohio State T-shirt around the halls of Whitney Young Magnet High School on Decision Day, how on earth am I preparing for my senior year already?! Year three: The year […]
I’m not exactly sure what’s taken me so long to write a formal post about this but since our OSU showing is this weekend, now is the perfect time to elaborate on this all-consuming opportunity I am so grateful to be apart of. Let’s start from the beginning. The amazing and awe-inspiring new chair of our department, Susan Hadley, was awarded a large amount of money to complete a project and she decided she wanted to put together a student […]
(Gotta love the pun in the title, amiright?) This school year I have had the pleasure of working with Christine Ghinder again for her senior thesis project. I cannot truly describe the evolution of the piece since we began in August/September but it has been a crazy, fun roller coaster ride! “Prism” was a work that aimed to address the intersectionality between dance, music and visual art (painting in this case). What started as a very abstract project became something to […]
I was just sitting in my room listening to the soothing sounds of Lianne La Havas on Spotify and I felt so… happy and carefree. Ever catch yourself just sitting alone and smiling at nothing in particular? I’ve been doing it a lot lately and honestly, it feels a little crazy. Four years ago I was one of the most pessimistic people you could be and still have friends. I thought I was on the borderline of realism but in […]
What felt like the perfect ending to my sophomore year just so happened to be my second-year Arts Scholars project. This past Thursday, a few dance majors had a meeting of the minds with a musician and a videographer to create a fun, experimental improv session.
