Fighting a bout of depression. Can’t think of anything to say. Here are some pictures that cheered me up a little.

Fat Talk

I used to think that was only a ballet thing, but I’ve come to realize that many young women struggle with weight. Wanting to be thinner, wanting to look like the women on TV is a huge issue! Watch the video below!

Who do you admire?

In general I admire all dancers who are better than me is some way. I love to go to youtube and see all the amazing dancers out there and see what I want to become. I found this video the other day and was in awe for hours!

I'm still in awe!!!
So whom do you admire? Why? How did you find them?

Horse Love!

Well here is an exciting update for you!
A few days ago I received a call from a woman that I had worked for a few years back. I was a Junior Wrangler Leader (AKA horse “trainer”) at a riding camp. She wanted to know if I would be interested in taking care of some of her horses for the year!

Now it may surprise you that I’m not only a full time ballet student… but I’m also a horse fanatic! So I was really excited about this. I talked to my parents and I got to OK, so I’m going to call her today and see if she still needs me! I will have the horse until April or May.
I’ll keep you posted!

P.S. I'm feeling 100% better!

My poor head!

Well its official… I’m sick. I hate admitting I’m sick, I always try to write it off as something minor that will go away if I ignore it. I couldn’t get away with that this time; I actually had to miss a ballet class!

But being sick has its upsides. I’m feeling a little woozy because of the medicine so I think that’s why I suddenly have the courage to share with you some of my creative writing. I hope you like it, but keep in mind I’m not very good at this sort of thing!

Lydia stood quietly for a moment in the primeval grove. The night sky was scarcely visible though the branches of the trees that surrounded her and the cool wind whipped at her jacket. This was not the first time she came here, back to the place where it happened, but tonight was different. She was finally going back.

Taking a deep breath she pressed onward, going deeper into the foreboding darkness. Leafs and twigs crunched under her bare feet but she hardly noticed, she was on a mission and nothing could deter her. She passed over a bubbling creek and under fallen trees, following the narrow trail she had walked so many times before.

Finally she saw it, a small pool of water nestled between the roots of a giant oak tree. Any other person would have dismissed as a puddle but Lydia slowly walked towards it and knelt down beside it. The water took on a faint glow as she peered over its edge and a warm gust of wind hit her face. It was starting.

Pride and Prejudice

I know I have talked about it before, but I have to tell you again!

I’ve read the book and watched every movie related to Pride and Prejudice, its safe to say I’m an addict (don’t worry, I’ll go to therapy someday). This is one, if not the best love story of all time! You can’t help but wish you were Elizabeth after watching, even though she goes though many hardships! It is also very "clean", unlike many love stories today.

So if you haven’t seen it…. GO RENT THE MOVIE NOW! PLEASE!

So I was recently given an award (Thanks bunches Judi!) And I was inspired to create an award that the winner could save and put on the side bar of their blog! So without further ado I would like to present:

The_Ballerina’s Most Faithful Commenter Award to Judi! Thanks of always leaving me a great comment! Enjoy!

I will be giving out more awards soon!

Homesick... for Ireland

"Every dreamer knows that it is entirely possible to be homesick for a place you've never been to, perhaps more homesick than for familiar ground."- Judith Thurman

I love this music (and the movie). Listening to it while looking at pictures of Ireland really makes me "homesick".
