Throughout this page, you will find the thoughts and experiences I have gained over the course of the Humanities. In two semesters, I have explored the ways in which we interact with history, and insert our own experiences into objects and the stories of people that are already archived in our past. My essays, poems, and definitions collectively express these lessons, which like the human experience itself, follows no exact order nor pattern. Explore freely, and navigate the site with the knowledge that its contents represent myself in the present, and as my mind has changed before, it is certainly subject to change again. This website may be sealed and polished, but I am most definitely a work in progress. To reiterate this as much as possible, the image I have chosen to head every page is myself looking toward a distance, open to new sights, new perspectives, a new self. The colors I have layered over my pictures represent the change in perspective I have in reflection versus in the moment, and I also think it’s a pretty groovy aesthetic to be quite honest. The video above is a collection of my captured experiences from my trip to Berlin. The colors remain consistent with those I have included with my pictures, and I have removed personal audio in order for the memories to remain separated from what was said, and only relish in what was done, as was the major theme throughout our experience of Germany’s history. The song, “22 (0ver soon)” by Bon Iver, reflects the impermanence of my perspectives, my endless pursuit for finding something “more,” and the constant introduction to unforgettable people that seems to be a trend so far at Davidson.
With that being said, read away. I have learned a lot, I hope this turns out to be my chance to teach a few things too.
