I have auditions for Joffery Ballets summer intensive tomorrow! I’m super nervous. I have never auditioned for a big name ballet company before, and I really want to be good enough.
It’s a 4 and a half hour drive to the nearest city where they are auditioning so I have to get up at 5 in the morning to get their in time. I hope I am not to tired when I get there, but I’m sure I will be so nervous and full of adrenaline that I will make it through.

Wish me Luck! I’m going to need it!

Isn’t it funny how stress can just hit you all of a sudden. You can literally feel the air being sucked out of your lungs as if someone sucker punched you in the stomach. At least that’s how it feels for me, especially today.

I have a lot of things to deal with, though I’m sure it’s not anymore than other people have. Car payments are do, school, needing another job to make ends meet the list is endless. It’s hard not to be overwhelmed when things seem impossible, but then I remember that I’m not alone. God can do the impossible, and He will provide. I can rest in Him and His mercy and Grace.

Thank you Father!

Philippians 4: 6-7
Do not be anxious about anything but in everything by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving presents your requests to God.
And the peace of God which transends all understanding will guard your heart and your mind in Christ Jesus.

A Poem

All right I’m trying my hand at this poem thing. Judi you inspired me to try writing and a guy (whose name shall not be mentioned) inspired these words.

He makes you angry
And you don’t know what to say
All he does it hurt you
In every single way

He flatters you with pretty words
And showers you with praise
Then he goes and leaves you
And talks to her all day

You can’t help but like him
Even though you know its wrong
Why is it so extremely hard
To let go and move on

Update time!

Well I’m finally getting back into routine! Yes, it has taken me this long to recover from Holiday break!
School is going well, but a little slow; I’m really starting to worry about college stuff. As a home schooler I always wonder if I have learned as much as people in the public school system. And at a lot of the colleges that I want to apply for, home schoolers have to have higher tests scores than everyone else, which I don’t quite understand. I know that I am very behind in this college race, I have yet to take my ACT test (I have one in February). But its all in Gods hands and I think this is his way of saying that I need to take a semester off and work to save my money (so I can pay for college! Lol).

My body has also finally recovered from my three weeks off. My first class back was horrible! I was exhausted and was amazed by how much technique can be lost without dancing everyday! Rehearsals for recital have started, and I am excited to have found out we are going to be doing the ballet Alice in Wonderland!!

Well that’s all I have to say for right now! God bless!

Help me out!

Ok so I wrote this for no real reason. I threw in a lot of things about me and things I like. Something just seems wrong. Repetitive and rambling? To much use of the word rain? Its just horribly written and can't be saved? I can’t figure it out, so if you can it would be greatly appreciated!

Kathleen sat peacefully on the front porch swing, her bare feet pushing on the ground causing her to gently glide back and fourth. She took a deep breath of fresh air as she watched the huge raindrops fall from the stormy sky and form puddles on the sidewalk.

Days like this were Kathleen’s favorite, they reminded her of her home in Ireland. Rain came almost everyday there, but here in Texas it rained far to little in her way of thinking.

It had been a long day and Kathleen was grateful for this momentary escape. Her body ached from hours of dancing and the comfort the rain brought helped keep her mind off her pain.

Thanks guys!

New Years Resolutions

I thought I would share with you my goals for this New Year. For the first time in a very long time my top goal is not to lose weight. This is not because I am necessarily happy with my current weight, but because I have discovered that being happy with the way God created you is a first step to being happy. Also, when I make goals for myself I keep them… even if that means doing dangerous things to get there and I’m not willing to let myself go down that path again.
So, with that said, these are my goals for this New Year.

Keep doing my abs and cardio every night (this was my goal last year and its still going well)

Eat more healthy food

Stretch with purpose twice a week (I say stretch with purpose because I stretch every day to warm up my body, but I want to make a special goal where my stretching is to gain flexibility)

Now I have a lot of other things that I want and need to do this year as well (college stuff, teaching stuff, etc) but I don’t want to fall into the trap of setting my standards to high.

Did any of you make any New Years Resolutions?

May God Bless this New Year! =D
