On Neutral Ground

Good evening!

I left you hanging in the foley-studio a little longer than I planned after my previous post, but I’ll attempt to share some of what I’ve been up to since then.

I’m officially done with my short film “TENDER,” and I survived the annual so-called “tomato-throwing event” at Tisch (aka the evaluation and feedback by the faculty) which actually turned out to be a great experience! We’ll have the open premiere tomorrow, but I’ll tell you more about all that later.

This past weekend I had the opportunity to step outside my film bubble for a bit, to reunite with two of my very best friends, Karen and Brittany. We haven’t been together as a group since they graduated from Augustana in 2016, so needless to say, this was a special weekend.

Central Park.

Financial District.

Karen came all the way from Norway, and Brittany from South Dakota, so I guess we met on neutral ground this time.

Rockefeller Center.

We made sure to enjoy New York’s finest attractions, finest pastries and finest milkshakes — so whatever weight I lost living off of cereal and leftovers this semester certainly found its way back on … in surplus, haha)

We walked until our feet hurt, and laughed until our abs got sore.

We also waited in line for 2.5 hours — outside in the cold — to get into Black Tap (an iconic milkshake place). Together with what must have been hundreds of people in line, the power of anticipation kicked into full overdrive, and at one point Karen said “This may be the peak of my life.” She wasn’t joking.

Click to play video. To put our behavior into perspective, I’d like to add that not a single drop of alcohol was consumed; we’re just that weird, haha.

Greenwich Village.

Lova ya.
