5 Ways to Majorly Chill Out – 12/9/13

I don’t know about you guys but when it starts “freeze-raining” (term coined by moi) outside and the work tunnel seems to lengthen with every passing assignment, all I want is free food and a gigantic body pillow. Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to find either of those things on campus, BUT there are some extremely chill events coming that should make do for the time being…


African Classics Concert

Where: Marshall Field Room 1

When: Wednesday December 11th, 7pm-?


Listening to music is about as chill as it gets, especially if it’s really good music. Come out to Marshall Field this Wednesday night to hear awesome African tunes for Music students including Priya Charry, Sam Wipf, Alanna Duncan, Dominick Boyle and many more!

Dubliners by James Joyce, adapted by The Ensemble, directed by Sarah Plotkin

Where: PAC Suzanne Werner Wright Theater

When: Friday Dec. 13th & Saturday Dec. 14th, 7-9:30pm


“Fifteen stories unfold in a parade of moments in the lives of Dublin as the characters share their memories, nightmares and dreams. Created collaboratively by the ensemble using movement, music, improvisation and puppetry, it is an event of struggle and epiphany. For SLC students, staff and faculty: Sign up in the PAC Lobby. For our neighbors and guests, please call College Events at 914-395-2412 or email collegeevents@sarahlawrence.edu to reserve your seats. PLEASE NOTE: Seats are limited for each performance and available on a first come, first served basis. Performances are open seating.”


Take a Deep Breath: Quick Meditation to Prepare You for Conference Work

Where: Bates Spiritual Space

When: Wednesday December 11th, 6:15-7pm


“We all need to be giving 100% of our effort as we work tirelessly on our conference work, but burning the candle at both ends for too long isn’t the answer and won’t do any good. We need to pause, take a break, breathe for a second and then get back to business. Come enjoy some tea, learn to meditate and clear your mind so that when you return to work–you really can give it your full attention and effort.”


Winter Dance Concerts

Where: Bessie Schonberg Dance Studio

When: Saturday Dec. 14th, 7:30-9pm; Sunday Dec. 15th 2-3:30pm & 7-9pm


This weekend the Winter Dance Concerts will be taking place for both A and B dance groups. Come to the Bessie Schonberg Dance Studio in the PAC to sit back and admire your fellow students’ hard work and beautiful moves.


Sarah Lawrence Music Presents: Winter Open Concert

Where: Marshall Field Room 1

When: Saturday December 14th, 5 – 7pm


Sarah Lawrence musicians have been working hard all year and now the public gets to revel in the pay off. Come check out to Marshall Field this Saturday night to hear some sweet, sweet sounds.


Chill Out

Where: Your favorite chill zone

When: Anytime you need it


As work piles up and the minutes seem to slip away like the ~sands of the hourglass~, don’t forget that there is ALWAYS time for a break. It is important to rest your brain every so often, usually twice an hour, to re-charge and re-engage. Work is important but not as much as your health/sanity.
