Here is a literary post for all of you well versed people out there! Three guesses as to who this is about.
1, 2, 3.
Hello again, readers. After a slew of posts from George, I decided that I would give him the day off and post about another person from Cornell. This time, it’s Dulcinea.
I met her during Orientation Week when I discovered that she not only was in the same major as me, but also did theater! This is extremely rare to find, because these two interests are kind of difficult to mix together as I have found out. Anyway, Dulcinea is a Senior who is graduating this December, which makes me very sad, because she’s really quite amazing. She is exactly like Clara, which is also something makes her remarkable. Both Dulcinea and Clara take care of the people around them and are basically the mother hens of the house where they live. Dulcinea loves to clean and make things tidy, which comes from one, our shared major, and two, her experience in the theater and making things easy to find and safe to navigate. Clara does the same thing, so whenever I see Dulcinea I think of Clara. It’s quite confusing, actually…
Moving forward, I have gotten to know Dulcinea pretty well over the past two months, to the point where I know exactly what I can say to get her to make a specific face (always without her knowing what I am doing, much to the amusement of her boyfriend). This has happened on multiple occasions, where I can “call” a face before she makes it. She planned the Halloween Dance that just happened a few days ago, and I did my best to help with setup and strike of all of the equipment. We are on the Student Board for my dorm, and she actually fell asleep on me because of the amount of effort she put into the Dance (making her sleep through half the meeting, but I wasn’t about to wake her).
Sometimes she and I study together in the school where we have classes, but our schedules don’t quite line up, so it doesn’t really happen often. We’ll have lunch together occasionally, and from time to time breakfast (yes, I have actually gone to breakfast. Well, brunch).
We went to a concert together (Ke$ha) and somehow ended up in the front row (right next to the stage with Ke$ha! For those of you who don’t know, Ke$ha is one of my favorite artists/ performers), so that was amazing. Then some girl fainted next to us because she couldn’t breathe, so Dulcinea and I carried her to the side and got the concert security to help out the collapsed girl. Before the concert though, we were glitter bombed (obviously, it was Ke$ha) so we went in sparkling with gold and sliver sparkles which didn’t come out of our hair for days. I still found some in her hair a week later, because glitter NEVER GOES AWAY. It’s still on the floor of my room, over a month later, and I have vacuumed at least three times. Glitter is impossible.
Dulcinea is very busy. Since it is her last semester, she is looking for a job in the real world, balancing schoolwork and theater on top of that, and somehow still maintaining a social life while getting sleep (most of the time). She’s organized and determined. People look up to her, respect her, and really enjoy her presence. No one is looking forward to seeing her graduate. She’ll be missed.
I’ll See You,
