6 months

So the first five months of this year have gone by, and looking back on them I kind of feel like I haven’t accomplished as much as I wanted to, or probably should have. The good First dance recital! Completed Beginner Lyra and am in Intermediate (2 lessons) 6 lessons of silk with my new…

Anxiety

i’ve been struggling with some anxiety and depression symptoms for the past few weeks, hence i haven’t been able to post as regularly as i used to. it’s a first time experience for me and it sucks and i’m learning how to deal with it even now. so, this will be a quick update on…

To New Experiences: Recital

It’s amazing how I ended up on this final letter with everything that’s happened this week. RECITAL WENT GREAT! I had a lot of fun even with the nerves. The lights were bright so the audience was kinda dark from the stage but I could still see them. Ballet went really well and we managed…

Xa

It is actually more than a week since I’ve last posted because I’m a lazy bum. I’m absolutely sucking at silks now, and my lyra classes are moving really slow so I’m a little bummed. I have found an aerial teacher to teach me private lessons so I might quit the school I’m currently at…

Lexa

I’ve finally caught up to the latest episode of The100. I love all the beautiful characters, especially clexa, and like many others are disappointed with the direction the show is heading. I used to watch The Vampire Diaries and that was a mess after season four as well. I’ve decided to name my training programme…

I’m Amazing at Crossfit

Credit to megsquats for the title of this post. I pulled my back on saturday attempted 16.4. It was one of the stupidest decisions I have ever made and an important lesson that I have learnt. Almost a week later, and here I am, about 60% done with recovery. My flexibility has gone to the negatives…

Higher

Went into Turns class yesterday a little more moody than usual, but it ended up being pretty fun, followed by a fun Ballet/Jazz class as well to end off the term. Next term is recital and other stuff so it’ll be fun. The fees that are dropping on me in this month though… I need…

Intermediate(:

Been waiting for this for a long time but… WE’RE FINALLY DONE!!!! Has it been 8 weeks already? Has it? I’m so happy that I’ve made it through these 8 weeks, save the few I missed, not because of the title but because it means that I’ve finally learnt the beginner syllabus from start to…

Off Days

I realized that I have created so many Categories for my posts, but never made one for Off Days. Or what I would call, fun/life days. But if I chose the latter, a lot of classes would fall into that category as well. Maybe some time soon, yeah? Sunday was an Off Day. A real one. Went…

Moving along

I was told my kicks were perfect in technique class yesterday. Talk about a miracle happening. I sucked at everything else anyway so it balances out. Finally settled the choreography for the recital, a.k.a. no lift, but I’m still happy to be a part of it and it looks like it’s going to turn out…
