Weight – Cleo

T. Jenny and I talked about my progress last Monday, as we do every Monday. One thing she brought up was weight. In my dancing I’m always up on my toes. I like to feel light and pretty when I’m moving. But she made a good point: being light is meaningless if it does not exist in a dichotomy with heaviness. This week I’m trying to bring that heaviness into my movement. More specifically, I have to think about what it means to be heavy, and how that translates into the music and the story.

Directions – Natalie

Last week and this week I got some productive setting-up done and am now feeling just about ready to really take off. I managed to start and finish another amoeba painting last week, and did some general sketching. I also worked on my one dragon painting, which I have vowed to finish up soon so that I may move on.

Progress – Cleo

Through the last summer and over the course of the past few weeks, music has become an increasingly huge part of my life. It started for fun and has developed slowly (but not that slowly) into absolute devotion. In this time, I’ve made 8 songs. And as each one passes, I see myself growing tremendously. Just two weeks ago, I decided to bet on myself, I invested in my own work, and, with my mother’s assistance, upgraded my music equipment to a more professional level. Continue reading

Nikita – Tray

If you can’t tell, I like using song titles to title my blog posts, and this week, I feel like Elton John is appropriate because we’re going to talk about love. Over the course of my seemingly never-ending search for the perfect monologue, I have found that most have something to do with the ever-so-confusing concept that is love. Continue reading

Back to the Studio – Cleo

I started choreography today. It was my first time in the dance studio this year. Nearly immediately, I noticed how challenging it was to get back into the flow of movement. What I ended up doing was sitting in front of my computer with a pen and paper; and writing down every single thing that came into my head for each section of the song. Continue reading

Hojakdo – Mikehyojan

I explored one of the most popular genres of Minhwa called Hojakdo this week. The word “ho” represents a tiger, “jak” indicates a magpie, and “do” means painting. Therefore, Hojakdo mainly features the tiger and magpie. In Korea, the number of tigers proliferated in the past. As tigers were threatening at that time, Korean ancestors intentionally drew them with humorous facial expressions as if they were funny and friendly cats to represent people’s will to overcome fear.

The Last Blog Post

For my last blog post, I’m just going to give you guys another excerpt from my work. This isn’t the most recent writing that I have completed, but it begins where I left off in my second to last blog post. It’s been an interesting journey this year. Here it is:
