So…..It’s been almost a year for my little unplanned break, which is much longer than I was expecting.
Between dance, theatre, vacation, writing, cooking, and keeping up with my newest ideas, I’ve kind of neglected this blog a bit.
I do have 40+ posts in moderation though, so expect some serious draft-editing and posting. 😉
Anyways, I’M BACK!
A little bit of catch up:
Last summer I was in a summer-long musical theatre class. It was AMAZING! The same group is doing it again this summer and I’m hoping to do it again! It’s all funded by me, but I finally saved up enough thanks to some extra help from my grandparents. Love you!
I even got a line, and the role of featured dancer, which I was really excited about since I hadn’t done any jazz/musical theatre/acting before that.
I started taking theatre as well this year and I’ve been to one competition so far. It was really fun to see all my hard work (I may or may not have done a Lauren Child piece. BEST SCRIPT EVER!) pay off. My improv group placed pretty well, despite having some really hard/weird prompts and one that was pretty much right up our alley.
I started extra dance this year: I’m now doing multiple ballet classes as well as lyrical, contemporary, and jazz. My ballet/lyrical/contemporary is awesome and my teacher is an incredible dancer, but our classes our pretty focused and way more specific than they were before this year. There’s a much bigger emphasis on character which, being a writer, I love.
Our recital dances are amazing though!
I’ve been doing a lot of cooking recently as well, and I’d like to start blogging about some of my recent forays into the world of food. While I’ve always loved to cook, it’s recently been even more interesting to me.
The amount of Food Network and Great British Bake-Off our family watches is slightly insane. I’ve been going around pronouncing “basil” as “bah-sil”, thanks to all the British pronunciations in GBBO.
A good portion of my time has been spent on my bookworm-ish tendencies. I’ve read several new favorites (Keeper of the Lost Cities and When My Name Was Keoko are my newest) and I thoroughly enjoyed them.
My love for Harry Potter has only grown in the past year, and for the first time I met someone who could answer all my crazy trivia questions. (YES! SOMEONE WHO KNOWS THE RACE OF JOSEPH!)* I can’t wait for FBAWTFT, nor the Cursed Child release. The amount of fan theories I’ve come up with are slightly insane (though a large portion of the fan theories I’ve come up with are also for Star Wars, so….**).
So that’s a bit about my crazy year! Hope you enjoyed!
* If you got that reference you’re my new best friend.
** As I’m writing this my siblings are watching Force Awakens again. All I can hear is “I’ve got a bad feeling about this.” and a whole lot of “FINN!” “FINN!”. Rathtar hunting isn’t cheap.
