I got to spend several hours at the gallery during the week that the Tibetan monks constructed their sand mandala. It was amazing to watch them work, communicate, and create while learning about and observing their culture and customs. Their skill, patience, and endurance were unlike anything I’ve seen before.
I spend the majority of my free time training for track, listening to music, playing video games, and hanging out with my fraternity brothers and teammates. Away from Hamilton I spend almost all of my time in the outdoors hunting, fishing, shooting and riding ATVs.
I’ve always enjoyed the senior show at the end of the year. There are a lot of interesting pieces and it’s nice to see the work of Hamilton students on display. During the course of the year, many of us don’t get to see any of these pieces, or more generally what goes on inside of List, and the senior show is a great opportunity for the Hamilton community to see what its student are capable of.
Metal – There are so many things you can do with it: weld, cut, bend, sculpt, and my personal favorite, engrave.
Leonardo da Vinci. The man could do it all – build, design, paint, sculpt and invent. I’m sure he could come up with something that would encompass all of the different aspects of my life. Plus the portrait would be worth a lot.
Without a doubt I would love to hear a Rise Against (my favorite band) rendition of Charissima. I don’t know if it would sound good but I can guarantee it would be loud.
