Student Blog: Everything I didn't do this summer and some things I did.
August 11, 2021

I opted instead for catching up on books, TV shows, plays and movies. Sometimes, we need to slow down and enjoy small things.

June 7, 2021

I found out that there existed a whole community online united around Broadway, and, suddenly, I was not alone anymore. It allowed me to discover more shows and artists. I met people from all over the world, learned about other cultures and memorized more timezones than I would care to admit. Above all else, I made new friends.
