In addition to swimming and writing for the Phoenix, I've now added a job. I work at the Lang Performing Arts Center, or LPAC for ease of speech. Today I went in for the first time.
I spent the majority of two hours sitting on the floor with a girl who graduated from an arts school in 2007 crimping slings. Before that session, I hadn't even known what crimping slings meant. But now I'm familiar with the intricate, repetitive process. I'm also more familiar with this girl, Emily, who was hired for a technical theater job this week at Swarthmore.
Yeah, it takes up time that I could be using to do work. But at the same time, I loved being able work with my hands rather than my mind.
