Ailey II

Ailey II was amazing! Completely amazing! If you ever get a chance to see them, I strongly suggest that you go and see them perform. They were all such gorgeous, beautiful, graceful dancers. I can't even get over it!

I guess a bit of an update is in order.

Spring is officially (except for yesterday) here in Selinsgrove. I'm definitely excited for all the spring and summer fashions and for Easter Break so that I can officially switch out my closet here in my dorm. After being here at school for only the winter, I realized that as I organized my closet last week, that I have accumulated so many black tops. It's pretty depressing! I wake up in the morning, do my thing, and when I get dressed, I want to look spring-y but alas! My closet is mostly made up of dark, winter colors. So going home in a week will be nice.

Tonight, I'm going to see Ailey II, a dance troupe. I'm so, so excited! I watched a few videos of them on youtube some this week, and they are AMAZING! I'll definitely let you know how fantastic they are later.

'Tis all for now!

Spring Time!

It's sunny and 72 degrees. I have to re-sew my PJ bottoms (again!) and then I am going to frolic in the sunshine. :) This weather can't get any better!

I'm surrounded by 2, 500 students here at SU, and I feel so lonely. I have friends, I know I do, but I'm not particularly close to anyone here. I don't have that "bestie," that person I really click with and it's making the awkward transition to a new place harder.

I didn't get a chance to form bonds with people last semester. I was at home! When I came back, everything was so different. I really thought I'd be able to slide into a group somewhere, but that just hasn't happened.

I've felt like an outsider before but never in such a large setting. At least those other times there was someone I could talk to who I was close-ish with. Here, there's no one.

My Psych Quiz was this morning, and if I checked correctly, I made an 88. I'm kind of unsure how I should feel about it though. I know, it's stupid, but I really felt prepared for the quiz... So it was kind of a bummer. I really hope she throws a question out, it was really stupid and poorly worded which made it super confusing.

I just have to pack and go to rehearsal today. I've had all this free time that I'm just not used to.

Oh, I also had my first experience with Microsoft Publisher. It was really easy, which is good for someone who is not computer fluent. I had to make posters for extra credit in Spanish; and believe me 3% points is a godsend!

It's that time. I'm stressing, freaking out, and will be so happy once all of my tests are over. Friday marks the first day of spring break, and I am thrilled. I haven't been home since I arrived on campus in January. I'm itching to switch out clothing and bring home a different pillow. Oh, memory foam, I missed you more than I thought! That goes double for my down mattress topper.

It'll be nice to be able to do my laundry without having to take me debit card with me, and time each machine.

I'll also be seeing my grandparents! I miss them a lot. It'll be really nice to see them.

Obviously, I'm putting off my studying. And I'm going to have to return soon. But I did want to update on how Midsummer is going. The concept changed (again). It's now Elizabethan in Athens and 70s glam in the forest. I'm a Disco Goddess Fairy. Everyone's been practicing their moves before rehearsal starts. I really like it, it just soaks up so much of my time. I rehearse Sunday through Thursday from 6:30-10. It's a long rehearsal where it's hard to concentrate. So, I'll be relieved when I don't have to go to rehearsal like it's my job.
