Everyone always asks why I moved to New York City. And all my answers hold the same gist: “A change of pace”, “I’ve always wanted to live in a big city”, or “I had nothing better to do”. It’s true. Newly graduated, I did not have any jobs lined up (and not for lack of want or… Continue reading What Do I Want To Be When I Grow Up?
After spending three weeks job and apartment hunting (which has made the three weeks feel like three years), I have gone out to enjoy what New York City has to offer! I learned about Museum Hack through a friend of a friend (which is how New York really works) and when I saw on Facebook… Continue reading Hacking the Met
I have a job internship! Granted, it’s unpaid (so not exactly the independence of adulthood yet), but it’s pretty good for less than a week in a new city. Ironically, the company is based out of Boston, but that’s a minor detail as everything is done pretty much remotely. I’m really excited about this opportunity… Continue reading Green Door Labs Intern
After a summer of (mostly) joyous abandonment, it’s time for fall. And while half of my Facebook feed talks of new classes and returning to campus, I set out on a whole other adventure. Arriving in New York City was a surreal experience, probably enhanced from the all-nighter I pulled at SONH Sunday night. It… Continue reading How To Be The “New Kid”
I would like to preface this list by saying it was not easy. Picking favorites out of the best dancers that made it to ILHC? Some would say impossible! And if I really thought about it some more, I’d probably move them around, so don’t think that I thought Number Six was better than Number… Continue reading My Top Ten ILHC Videos
I have started this letter over five times, trying to describe exactly how I’ve felt about the past seven years. The move itself was less than pleasant, with me kicking and screaming the whole way down because like hell I was going to enjoy Florida with it’s heat and humidity and not where my friends… Continue reading Dear Florida,
I say as I shake my fist comically at the sky, taking cues from every 1980s villain ever. Yes, it was because I was (and still am) sick that I came home a full four days earlier than planned. I stuck out my remaining days for week 4, but was under instructions to NOT dance.… Continue reading “You Win This Time, Herräng Flu. This Time!”
I was fully prepared not to write about my last week until at least this Saturday, if not Sunday, due my tendency to throw myself into whatever I’m doing, especially if it’s the last stretch. However, I now find myself not only with the vicious Herräng flu, but also pink eye. Pink eye! A whole… Continue reading What do you do when you’re sick at Herräng?
It is so difficult to take pictures in Herräng because you are usually too busy being a part of whatever’s happening, you don’t have time to think about your camera! Every week in Herräng ends on Friday with a big themed party. The end of Week 2 was Winter Wonderland. At first when I heard… Continue reading Winter Wonderland, Haunted Hus and Everything Inbetween
I have been so good about posting every week, so when I first got to the famous (or infamous, which ever you prefer) Herräng Dance Camp, I was afraid I was going to have to sheepishly beg forgiveness while I abandoned this blog for volunteering, dance and parties. But lo and behold, I am attempting… Continue reading There Is Nothing Like Herräng
