I’ve been feeling a little overwhelmed with school. It’s my senior year and I have to worry about applying to grad schools and scholarship grants and try to make myself look as appealing as possible on a sheet of paper… … Continue reading Little Notes
It’s Monday. I usually love Monday because it’s a new start to an awesome adventure, research has been going pretty well, weekends are regenerative… what more could you ask for? Today, I can think of a lot of things I … Continue reading Tales of an Unusual Monday
“May your road be long and prosperous. Not short and futile.” This was the thought that popped into my head last night before I went to sleep. Over the past few weeks, I’ve been really anxious about dance and exercise … Continue reading Roads
The first three days of my junior year of college have been completed. To be honest, I was kind of petrified for it to start because I was afraid that I would have a ton of work and that I’d hate all of my classes and not have enough time to dance and get A’s and be mildly social on the weekends. As usual, I was worked up for nothing. Engineering is hard, but it’s not going to be any different then it’s been for the past two years. I know I’ll have a lot of work, but after getting … Continue reading Ready? Set? Lets Go.
Remember what it was like when you were four. When you looked at the world in awe and wonder. Butterflies left you speechless and rain was like the peaceful rhythm of the earth telling you everything will be alright. Remember … Continue reading Remember When
I suppose you could say I’ve been conquering a lot of mountains so far this week. Why you ask? On Sunday, my friends and I in the study abroad program climbed the Untersberg Mountain in 3 hours. We braved a mile … Continue reading Conquering Mountains
I’m starting to get so excited for the North Americans. For the first time since I started study abroad, I was able to practice yesterday. Before I started practicing, I was so nervous because I kept thinking all of these little negative ‘what ifs’… what if my stamina was gone… what about technique… I almost didn’t practice because I was beginning to convince myself that I would just do it tomorrow and that I was too tired from waking up at 5:30am and riding a train for 7 hours from Budapest to Salzburg. But I ignored myself. I did it! … Continue reading Dance First, Think Later. It’s the Natural Order.
Just let it be. The noises of people talking, clocks ticking, squirrels chirping, your mind running, the universe humming… just let it be. Acknowledge its presence and move on. Often times in this society we are expected to be Miss … Continue reading A New Outlook
I despise being sick. It’s like the monster that ruins everything. Last Sunday it was like a switch just flipped at night and I woke up Monday morning with a sore throat and the sniffles. I also had two finals on Monday. Boo. Finals week + sick = not fun. But I survived and I’m back home and I’m so so so happy! Today was also my first step in getting my doing on. That sounds weird, I know. Oh well. I went to Nationals practice at my dance studio and it was so nice to see all of my … Continue reading Challenge Accepted
I’ve been in a rut of wanting to improve, but not knowing how. I don’t think I’ve been pushing my self as hard in workout sessions because I’m afraid of what I won’t be able to do. That it won’t … Continue reading Getting Doing Done
