Last Three Weeks of Summer!
School begins next week! Can you imagine? Well, perhaps I can. I made sure I savored every single moment of free time this summer and I'm slowly getting back into the pace and rhythm of being a Graduate student at The Juilliard School.
It's been quite nice being able to alternate homework (we've got assignments for singing, Shakespeare scene study, political speeches, and our first production), rest, binge-watching and getting coffee with friends. Although there has been a lot less binge-watching happening this week and more getting focused back on the work.
I know I haven't posted in three weeks, which is beyond the time I usually give myself in-between posts. However, it was important to me to allow myself the space for "non-doing" while the circumstances allowed for it because I know that life at The Juilliard School will throw a lot of elements back into the mix again. The inner serenity that I have rediscovered this summer will come in handy once training, life, interpersonal relationships, etcetera will come to engage with it once again.
And there you have it! I'm guessing there would be a lot more pictures coming your way this school year, as third year will bring full-blown productions (i.e. wigs, makeup, costumes, etc.) open to the public!
I am a Graduate Drama student at The Juilliard School from Quezon City, Philippines.
