ASA Alumni Dance Diary: Busy, busy, busy!
Monday, October 24,2016
Today was a pretty eventful day. I tried to go to bed at a decent time, so I just woke up earlier today to study and practice my speech.
My exam in Introduction to Western Music Traditions wasn’t terrible, but I don’t think it necessarily went well. I’m hoping to get a B on the exam.
Ballet was a little challenging today, but not impossible. There was just a lot of weird patterns, but I’m pretty good at memorizing combinations after five years of dance so it helps. The only thing I’m not fond of is when we change the pace of the combination. We usually do the combination two times. The first time is slow and then when we repeat it is quicker, but it takes me a second to hear the tempo and adjust it to my dance.
English was fine. We worked on a lab activity to introduce us to our next paper. After that, we got back our grades from Visual Analysis paper and received 150/150!! So, I did fine without my rough draft.
My speech in COMS definitely wasn’t my best since I procrastinated so much, but it wasn’t terrible!
Then, I went back to my dorm and had a meeting with my CA. We are required to have meetings with him to check in every so often, but I talked about my roommate situation and wanting to switch rooms. So, now I have to have a meeting with her and my CA in attempt to find a solution. However, I don’t think it is going to happen since I’ve been trying to find a solution for FOUR weeks…
On a more positive note, I got a call about a job interview on Thursday. A lot of people applied, so I’m not getting my hopes up, but if it works out that would be great.
I also went to a presentation from Bryan Stevenson, who is the author of one of the books I’ve been reading in my classes. He was a really good speaker and I actually enjoyed the presentation.
