 here we are

will it stay?

i am glad,

at least in my life

I worked as an RA for a precollege program the summer of 2017, after my freshman year of college. I never knew that these programs even existed before, and I am sure if I did, I would not have fit in with the kind of personality that attends such a program at the time. During that summer, I was constantly fluctuating between a sense of freedom and constant surveillance, considering the heat and the events of that summer were not conducive towards a un-paranoid mind.

It was a pretty rough summer!

I made these tracks in the mean-time. I became more interested in sampling disparate sources and layering them on top of each other, as well as beginning to compose and arrange my own melodies. I became an avid listener during this process.
