Bryn Battani and Clara Posner
Connection to Carleton
Bryn described the following poem as being "inspired by all of the quirks and frustrations I've been running into during my many conversations over the phone as well as the language/phrases that are unique to this method of communication that we're all finding ourselves using so often lately". In addition, she shared her experience this term by describing "how sad it has been to take events off of my calendar. I'm a person who loves lists, so the act of deleting something makes it feel real in a strange way. Also, over spring break, I gave my bedroom a mid-century makeover in an attempt to make this isolating environment a little more aesthetically pleasing. I hated the way my room looked for a long time, but I never felt motivated to do anything about it and put all my energy into designing my dorm room instead, since I figured I wouldn't be here much... but now, I am!"
