SPRING IS NEAR!
Spring is near in New York City! Here’s what I am most excited about:
1) Sunlight and warmth
I’ve come from a sunny, tropical country and the cold, dark, winter in New York is something that I’m still getting used to. While my second winter in New York has been (thankfully), more bearable than my first, I cannot emphasize enough the benefits that sunlight and just the right amount of warmth have on my overall well-being.
2) Central Park
In my first year during spring, one of my 2-hour classes got cancelled abruptly and so I suddenly had free time! Me and one of my best friends in class decided to get coffee and walk along Central Park while running lines. It was my first time seeing Central Park after winter and it was all so green and sunny. I remember screaming and then lying outstretched on the grass saying, “this was such a good idea!” I’m looking forward to doing that again this year.
3) Walking outside during breaks!
Actors under the Juilliard Drama Division Actor Training Program are in school from 9AM until 10PM every day. It can sometimes feel like this is the only world that I know. I am looking forward to being able to walk outside to get some fresh air during breaks to take a breather in between classes.
