Dec. 23, 2015—Thus ends the first semester of my freshman year. I was my high school valedictorian and I failed three tests. I’m so completely ungraceful that I opened a door once and fell over; I learned to swing dance. I would have described myself as an “introvert” before coming to college; I’ve discovered I LOVE people.
Oct. 7, 2015—I spun through the air and then landed on the concrete, laughing. It was midnight and Zack and I had just attempted the swing dancing routine Around the World. Around us, about seventy-five people swing danced, whirling around in sundresses or sweatpants, their feet scraping against the floor of the top of the parking garage.
Feb. 25, 2015—Asian New Year Festival, colloquially called ANYF, is a massive dance performance held each year in Langford Auditorium to celebrate Chinese New Year. After performing in Diwali last semester, I was eager to get back up on the Langford stage in a shiny costume, so ANYF came at the perfect time.
