Sitting at home after performing with Abba Modern, eating a fat slice of cake, listening to Phoenix on repeat, and pondering what I will do with the extra 5 hours of free time I now have on Sunday now that dance practices are over. teehee.
is beating faster and faster as I am nearing the final rounds of my thesis revisions (albeit, these rounds take forever…). it’s funny how after reading over your writing so many times, it doesn’t sound like your own words anymore. probably around this time tomorrow, I will have handed off my paper copy to the student services office. i dont know how to feel.

sleepless in seattle
this movie teaches us that being a hopeful creeper from across the country is okay. and that it will WORK! duly noted.
Often times, I come before the Lord with a heart set on bombarding Him with all of my hopes, fears and questions. When I find days where I have nothing to think or say, I feel as if I am not prepared enough to meet with Him. I have been reminded of the fact that when one spends time with his or her significant other, ultimately all that matters is physical act of being next to one another, and...
today at 7:53PM, my dwx set finally reached total completion. 5 practices ago, this day felt so excruciatingly far away. no more cramming new blocking/choreography monday mornings at 6AM and panicking trying to remember it all before practice. WHAT A GLORIOUS THING! i think my brain is just about ready to retire its choreographic juices. i hope my last dwx set turned out to be what it was meant...
Those who stand around us may counsel us in our struggles and hopes with fleshly wonderings, but may we turn back solely to the Word and prayer as our ultimate sustenance and daily Truth!!!
Maybe the hardest prisons to break out of are the ones without locks.– Abed Nadir, Community
1) my mom urged me on the phone that i need to live life to the fullest and do everything that i want to do because im young. 2) my brother told me that my dad thinks im in a “rebellious stage” now, not because of any witnessed actions, but because he never saw me in one at all while growing up, therefore assuming that it SHOULD have hit me now… which one is more sad? ...
still waiting on the day that adjectives like “gay” and “retarded” are eradicated from our vocabulary. c’mon, college students.
late night derping
many are the moments when i am lost in the scintillating contents of my computer screen, only to realize that my foot, leg, or arm has fallen asleep from my negligence of reality. ruuuuude awakening.
learning how to embrace mah womanhood.
New week, new day, new joy.
I’ve been in this weird funk for the last 2 days, and I can’t put my finger on why. Like…I never get in these funks. Loss of energy, headach-ey, just not thriving. I think I’m being spiritually attacked, and I’m aware of certain things in my life right now that are testing my faith, but I know that the devil strikes in response to something good coming up over the...
now that audition season is over
i can finally let my body heal… please excuse my contorting facial expressions whenever i walk/sit/stand/climb stairs in the meantime. i am not making them at you
why am i only able to choreograph in the mornings when im still groggy and in my pajamas? awkwaaaard

rahlahlah: [this might be common sense to some people…or maybe a reflection of SES ;)]In social psychology, I learned that the people who most often achieved their goals were those who KNEW and MENTALLY REHEARSED the steps necessary to achieve their goals. In a study, higher-income kids were distinguished…

at the start of break, my dad welcomed me home by saying i was banned from watching any tv. AT ALL. ….what? i was so pissed off…i felt so fatigued from everything and got into a yelling fight with him that led to him criticizing me for not acting like how a “21-year-old adult” should be during their free time. i was so angry….i endured the hardest semester of college and yet came out...
only 3 days being home, and it’s getting more and more apparent that home is not “home” for me anymore.

christunas: In the past 24 hours, there have been 28 deaths in Connecticut and 22 wounded children in China. I’ve thought a lot about this whole situation and while I do sympathize for those affected by these recent events, I can’t help but wonder about the two men in charge of these assaults - both… couldn’t have said it better myself
every single night for the past week has been a night of restless/disturbed sleep. im not even trying to pull allnighters but im suffering with everyone else anyways LOL
