I was quite disappointed that I wasn't able to video record the performance, but Dana managed to get some great still shots of her on stage, after the show, and in her dorm room. Now you have got to imagine this. I'm at an all girls college, in an all girls dorm room, surrounded by eight women, and trying to blend in with their conversations and dorm horseplay. I just sat on the sofa, propped up my feet, and listened to the rumblings in my stomach because it was 11PM at night and I was HUNGRY!!! I will have to admit, though, that it was kinda fun taking cheesy snapshots with everyone. Because I AM a professional photographer you know how difficult it must have been for me to be involved in that type of non-professional behavior.
After our visitation time was over I realized that it was good hanging out with my granddaughter, her roommate, and friends. After all we hadn't see her for months because she didn't come home during the summer. In addition, I got to see up close where all my tuition bucks are going.
The finale of our visit was when we got the chance to see Jazmine perform a dance routine for her home church (New Birth Baptist Church). Congratulations on a great performance, Jaz, and I know you are aware of where all of your talents and gifts come from. I look forward to coming in 2010 for your graduation...as long as it's not 24 degrees!!!!!
cool it is to walk around in your room.
