Hi everyone! I have my instructor phone call tonight (@ Alan), so thought I’d bite the bullet and finally introduce myself 🙂 I’m really not sure what to say on here; I’m usually partial to meeting people in person first- but here’s a little bit about myself:
I enjoy getting myself into things that I don’t quite understand, and then figuring it out as I go. I come from a big hockey family, and love and have played the sport for years myself. I also enjoy acting, and pretty much anything outdoors. I recently gained a crazy appreciation for the concept of “art,” and have been trying to coach myself in sketching and photography this summer. (My progress is questionable.) I’m from the metro-Detroit area, and am taking a gap semester as part of Middlebury’s Feb program.
As far as the video goes, I think I found the background of the videos most interesting. The landscape and architecture itself seems so different from my everyday scenery, and I quite like the notion that humans, like me, are living and thriving in such diverse environments.
And as far as what I’m excited for, I think it sort of ties into what I was saying above- I’m excited to be dropped into a completely different environment, language (?! oh boy), and culture. I’ve only ever experienced such a vastly different culture once, and I think it really brought me closer to my humanity. Alright, enough hippie crap- beyond excited to meet and begin this journey with you all !!
ps- apologies for the photo, turns out I have very few that are just of me. I was born on Earth day lol.
