Quick update: The Transition Projects concert went fantastically! And I am now artistic director for the Spring Undergrad Concert at ASU, which is terrifying but fun! More on those things later?
What I really want to talk about is New York.
We've shifted focus in my Transition Projects class from the concert to future plans. New York has come up multiple times. I hear how hard it is to live there, how expensive and exhausting it is, how some ASU Dance alumni live there but don't dance (they just work). My teacher called moving there "a slap in the face." And so on.
Honestly? It scares the hell out of me.
But it invigorates me, too! Which kind of took me by surprise because I'm so easily scared of everything. But every time I hear about how hard it is to live there, I just want to move there EVEN MORE. I don't know...I just have a feeling that I can handle it. Oh, it'll be the hardest thing I'll ever do and I foresee many homesick nights when things get rough, but I know I can handle it. I'll be okay. I'll find a job, I'll go on auditions to meet people, I'll take class, and I will work my ass off to get choreography jobs here and there.
I'm going to make it, I know it. :)
