For one of my classes, we took a field trip to a hotel in Ueno. The art director of the hotel is one of my teacher's previous students who actually studied at Pratt for a little while. As she shared with me stories of her time at Pratt, I was reminded again how small the world is. Made me realize that this whole time being in Tokyo, the world has felt really, really huge to me. And I think that's not just because Tokyo is huge but because of my lack of human connection.
