Happy Hump Day. I hope your week is going strong and that you are staying afloat amidst the deadlines and demands filling your planners.
This is so far a very long week filled with a steady, unrelenting stream of work. But I've managed to litter the path ahead with some leisurely fun. Here's what's on my list. What's on yours?

Radiolab Live Recording of Cellist Zoe Keating
For me, this music veers a little too close to the edge of "pretty cinema"-my imprecise label for the likes of Philip Glass. Pretty, emotive, but not necessarily interesting. Nonetheless, pretty and not distracting is ideal for reading cases or barreling through citations.
The music starts about halfway through, and here are two in particular:
102:50: A stripped down version of a classic
108:35: A happier song
P.S. Radiolab is having a live recording at school this month, so perhaps I'll go.

Stephen Petronio Company
I just caught wind of this event and bought tickets with a classmate. I am excited. Of all art forms, dance is my favorite, and it has been almost a year since I last saw a dance performance. The Company is also teaching a master class that I plan to attend.
Idina Menzel, Darren Criss, the Whiffs
This concert needs no description. My enthusiasm for this event is out of character; I've been talking about this concert for weeks, probably to the inward groans of my friends. I hope it lives up to the hype and my love for all things song and dance related!
And with that, I look to the clock, and it's 1:57 a.m. Time for bed.
