Wonderful Wednesday!

It’s half way through the week and boy am I excited!  So far I’ve already had one test this week and another big one tomorrow!  Whew!  Midterms are coming too!  I can’t believe how fast things are going.  I am ready for a break though.  I miss sleep!  Spring break is coming soon and yes, I may have already started planning!  Let’s be honest, I started planning 2 weeks ago!!  My parents are coming and I can’t wait to tell you all about it in a couple of weeks!

Even though auditions were a couple of weeks ago we are always being watched and judged in class.  It wears on me sometimes.  I love to dance but knowing that I’m being judged and evaluated kind of takes the fun out of it.  I find myself dancing for others and not so much for me.  I have to figure out a way out of that one or my head is going to go crazy!  With all of these exams and shows coming up it’s becoming a little pressure cooker in class…maybe that’s why I’m so excited for Spring break!

On a high note I am continuing to improve my overall strength and more people are noticing!  At first I was excited but now I’m starting to get a little self conscious!  I’m not used to people making comments about my body so often!  My friends even took a picture of my back muscles!  I have to admit, it looked pretty cool, but there is no way I’m posting that!  I’m a little to shy for that kind of internet permanence!  I am landing triple pirouettes pretty consistently and the other day I did 14 fouettés a la seconde!  Yay me!  I was super stoked!  Actually, I could hardly believe it!  Oh and, I have a new favorite jump, a C-Pop!  It feels like you are flying!

A C-Jump is when you jump up and make a C shape with your back while trying to get your feet to touch your head.  I don’t know if that’s the real name, but that’s what we call it at my school!

My shin splints are still yucky but I’ve been foam rolling them and that has really been helping, along with ice, compression and rest of course!

What is one good thing that has happened to you this week?

Are you as excited about Wednesday as I am!?!
