I interrupt your regularly scheduled blog-skimming for a short announcement: You may have noticed a new “site” tab at the top of this page. You probably didn’t. So I’m telling you now: I’ve been putting together a website for my dance and writing work, so check it out here!
Some other things I’ve been making in the couple few weeks:
Yeah, I had a lot of time on my hands . . .
But so much not any more! I’m currently in Texas getting ready to be an RA at a Joffrey Ballet School program. (Slash professional pokemon-tracing artist.)
I’m towards the end of the Python course. I just made a web crawler and I’m attempting to make a tic-tac-toe game. Apparently, the latter is harder. I also nearly smashed my computer out of rage, which seems like something that legit programmers would do. However, I think that my low caffeine intake prevents me from being truly legit.
I’m trying to apply for dance festival internships/work study programs which will allow me to dance over the summer. It is pretty tough to find things though, and I’m feeling some pressure to do other things with my summer. I just want to dance so badly and I’m trying to do everything I can to make it work practically.
I was really into jewelry making when I was 10 to 13-ish. I even had an Etsy shop for a while. Since then, it has kind of slipped out of my life, though I usually get back to it on breaks. My current jewelry binge is reminding me what I love about it, though. I get to start with things–beads and wires and chains and pliers (rhyming unintended) that I can touch and thread and twist–and designs come from that. Plans are unnecessary. I like to make sense of forms as they happen. For me at least, ideas are often best when they stem from a physical place. Nothing gets creative juices flowing like actually doing stuff with actual stuff.
