SPRING BREAK! WHAT I AM MOST LOOKING FORWARD TO:
Spring Break happens next week and there are several things I’m very excited for:
1) Filipino Food tripping: there are a couple of Filipino restaurants I want to try over the spring break. I miss Filipino food. There are a couple of people I specifically want to bring with me for various reasons (i.e. A few of them are Americans and I love them and I want to share what I love about my culture with them; or my cousin will be around and I simply want to binge)
2) Movie-pass! One of my New Year’s Resolutions this year was to go out more and this includes watching movies! If I don’t get to register for a movie pass in time then I will binge-watch Netflix shows.
3) Shopping: I saved a couple of bucks over doing additional work-study for auditions and so I am looking forward to treating myself over a few things.
As soon as Spring Break ends, we begin rehearsals for Romeo and Juliet. We won’t have as many classes anymore. And once Romeo and Juliet closes, I will be done with third year and will approach my final year of training here at the Juilliard School. Isn’t that crazy? There were many moments in the past two years when it felt like this will never end, but I guess all things do come to pass. I have passed the middle of the Juilliard “marathon” and I can see the finish line from where I am. I see a bright light from a distance and I am walking towards it every day. In the meantime, I will use this Spring break to shore up strength for what is to come. Onward!
