After 12 years of dancing flamenco, I have officially hung up my flamenco shoes and “retired.” I began this form of dance through my ballet studio (I took ballet for 10 years). Dance has always been a part of my life since my mom was a ballet dancer when she was young. It’s in my genes and it’s definitely in my blood. So it’s a little bit strange knowing I don’t have any dance class to go to every Monday and Wednesday. No shows on the weekends. It’s bittersweet.
All my life I have loved Irish hardshoe dancing and actually bought my own pair to teach myself using Olive Hurley’s DVD program. Perhaps this is the new dance form I’ll start next! Who know? All I know is change is good and new beginnings are fantastic.
Most of you know that I work for two magazines here in the Lou, and one of them is Yoga & Spa Magazine. On Thursday, we had an exclusive party celebrating our new summer issue, and over 100 fans, readers and advertisers came to party! But today, my man and I drove around the entire city, delivering said magazines to all of our distribution points! It was a fun road trip to say the least! Here’s the cover, it’s so gorgeous. I wrote around nine articles and blurbs in this issue, so I must say it’s one of my greatest achievements thus far! Visit www.yogaspamag.com to see an online edition of this issue! Also follow us on Twitter @YogaandSpaMag and on Facebook @Yoga & Spa Magazine.
So today, I met up with two of my girlfriends at Allstar Tattoo here in the Lou. Amanda wanted to get a monroe piercing, so I decided to jump on the bandwagon and get second piercings in my ears!! I had been wanting to for awhile, and, ya know, when you’re with your gals, it’s always more fun!
Sometimes I get so down about my life–where is it going? what will I be doing 5 years from now? am I really worth it? Those questions haunt me, usually at the end of the day. If you find yourself feeling hopeless, just remember what Anne of Green Gables said. 🙂
I just now learned about a new thing and I wanted to share it with those of you who are in the same state of my “un-knowledge”. I had just completed a new artwork from my Dot Art book, and had posted in on Facebook. One of my friends commented that I should look up “fractals” online. I did so, and found that these cool shapes exist in nature! They are so cool! Look at my picture and then at the neat ones of nature that I found! Just gorgeous!
