My P52 is a little behind, but for a very good reason!
Three months and ten cities later, I have FINALLY finished all of my grad school auditions, job auditions, and competitions!!! I am DONE with planes, trains, and automobiles– it’s time to enjoy my last couple of months at Eastman :)
I know that everything happens for a reason, but it was very hard to see that reason clearly when I was sleep-deprived and living out of a suitcase. However, now that I’ve seen the light at the end of the tunnel, I totally get it the reason for all of this traveling. These three months have taught me to appreciate HOME. There is a lot to be said for coming home at the end of the day to a familiar neighborhood, lit candles, your own bed, a freshly cooked meal, and the ability able to run around in your pajamas if you want to. More than anything though, the beauty of the lovely little place in Rochester that I call home lies in the PEOPLE. Rochester would not be home without the second family that I’ve come to love over these last four years. I would go as far as to say that the people are the most important part of my education at Eastman…without all of the wonderful classmates, mentors, and neighborhood friends that I’ve met, I would not have grown half as much. THANK YOU to everyone who has touched my life, even in the smallest ways. These next two months, my goal is to get out of the practice room, get off of my computer, and celebrate these friendships for the brief time that we’re still together.
Because there is no way I could possibly show you two weeks in only eight photographs, here are a WHOLE BUNCH. Enjoy. xo
Photos 1-8: My second trip to NYC this semester, including a late-night walk through Times Square and the addition of a wonderful new friend.
Photos 9-16: Home! Including a visit from Louie, whose photos you will see on the blog very soon. We spent a glorious couple of weeks filled with yoga classes, late-night chats, and delicious meals from Pinterest. Yum.
