“I never think of the future - it comes soon enough” (Albert Einstein). This quote is something that has influenced my life ever since I was young. I love this quote because when I was younger, I was always worrying about the future. I never knew what I wanted to do with my life. People were always asking me what I want to be when I grow up, or where I want to go to college. But, then my step dad, Dean, told me that quote. At first I didn’t think too much of this quote, but then I got to thinking about it more, and what the actual meaning is. Like how there are a lot of things that are out of our control, and how we usually stress on things, that we have or had no control over. So, ever since my step dad told me that quote, I’ve lived my life around that and it’s part of my everyday life now.
One of the biggest things that has happened to my life is my Mom going back to school. When I was about ten years old, my mom went back to school to be an anesthesiologist. This was weird, especially at the beginning because my mom always had a pretty well paying job, and I was confused about why should we leave her job. When she went back to school, she was rarely home. She was only ever doing three things. She was on the other side of the country for school, she was shadowing at the hospital, or studying for tests she had. So in term, we did not see her much....

...and three months without my older brother or sister, they both went to college, was just awful. At this point in my life though I have a different standpoint on things. I know everything that I’ve been through so far will only help me in the end. I still sometimes wonder whether or not to go back to Colorado for my junior and senior year of highschool and live with my aunt and uncle, but like I said earlier, “I never think of the future - it comes soon enough”.
My life up to this point has been all over the place, and I mean that figuratively and also geographically. But I know my life has just yet begun and the real test of life will soon begin. All the things leading up to this point in my life has made me who I am today, and I would not change it for the world. Although the uncertainty of the future will ups and downs, I am excited for every last second of it.

- The dancing in One Flat Thing Reproduced was constant from the very beginning to the end. It really worked off of all the design elements to create certain moods and emotions for the audience at specific times throughout. In many ways it was difficult to keep track of the dancers (who was coming and was going), but it also allowed for the audience to become very involved and allowed the viewers to be taken on a roller coaster. Although all the design elements distinctly pushed for certain emotional tones to be taken from this creation, it ultimately was the movements and stillnesses of the dancers that cemented the emotional tone of the piece and encouraged individuals to believe their versi...

- The very first “roller coasters” were created in Russia in the 1600’s, and were nothing like the typical roller coaster that comes to mind today. People rode down steep ice slides on large sleds made from either wood or ice that were slowed with sand at the end of the ride. These sleds required skill to navigate down the slides, and accidents were frequent. A Frenchman tried to cash in on the popularity of the Russian ice slides by building one in France, but the warm climate quickly ended his attempts with ice....
