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!
