Naruto!

So it’s been about a year since I last posted, I think. Quite a while, anyway. So, what’s new in my life? I’ll be graduating from college soon, that’s exciting. Also, my friend made a Naruto page on Facebook, so that’s also fun. If you’re a fan of Naruto you should check it out.

Spouses, spouses everywhere…

Here, for your enjoyment, are the things that tend to go through my mind when I look at Facebook and discover than yet another friend of mine has gotten engaged:

“No!”
“Stop it!”
“Why?”

 

In other news, I cut my fingernails today. This is a shame, as I was planning to grow them out to an impressive length and then paint them red to achieve a truly stunning effect. Someday…
I also bought a broom, mop, and toilet brush today. My house is cleaner than ever.

Oh! Glorious Dancing!

Last Wednesday I had my first day of Studio Dance. It went…well. (I cannot sachet. I cannot even spell sashay.) Okay, so I’m not an excellent dancer. I’m hoping, though, that if I look silly often enough I might turn into one.

So, while at Studio Dance last Wednesday our instructor mentioned that she also teaches a free Hip Hop class on Tuesday nights. I mourned. Twice. First, because I paid money for Studio Dance when I could have been taking a Hip Hop class for free. And then again, because it turns out Hip Hop starts at 8:15, and I’m in lab until 8:30. So I forgot about it and went about my business.

Then today, I got out of lab early, as sometimes happens, and looked at my watch (and by “watch” I mean “phone”) and realized that it was approximately 8:00pm on a Tuesday night. I thought, “Hip Hop. O.O” and scurried across campus. I meandered into the studio with a couple minutes to spare, looking extremely ready to dance, I’m sure, in my jeans, old running shoes, and long sleeve button-up shirt. As I approached the door I said to some girls standing outside, “This free?” They verified that it was, and that was good enough for me.

So we learned a bit of a hip hop dance, and then our beloved instructor informed us that she was going to film us all and put it on the internet. (The rec center Facebook page, I think, as well as Youtube?) So that was…good? There will soon be a video of me staring confusedly at people’s feet while they dance, feel free to find it and gently mock me.

What this all means, of course, is that I am now dancing two nights a week. Dancing very poorly, I admit, but dancing nonetheless. With a bit of luck, I might be a mediocre dancer by Christmas break. Brilliant.

A Rainy Night

I was walking home from my Astronomy lab tonight (where we had to do math. With fractions, and solving for X, and all that other complicated nonsense I can’t seem to grasp) in the rain, because it was raining. Also in the dark, because it was 8:30pm. Also, I was singing. I do that sometimes (though never well.) Suddenly, in the distance, I saw a boy walking down the sidewalk toward me. He was also singing. (His singing was much louder and better than mine.) When we got relatively close to one another, we both stopped singing and held awkward eye contact for a brief moment. As soon as we had passed one another, we both burst into song again. Then I immediately stopped singing to burst into laughter.

What a delightful moment.

Dance!

After a bit of deliberation, I have decided skipping out on one of my classes every Monday afternoon to go learn hoop-dancing is not a reasonable thing to do. So instead, I’m taking Studio Dance! The timing of that works much better with my schedule, and I’ll get to learn an exciting variety of dance styles. I’ll likely be learning Hip Hop, Jazz, Ballet, and Lyrical dance, among others. (Or maybe just a couple of those, not sure exactly how the class is set up yet.) The first day of class is Wednesday evening, and I’m all a titter just thinking about it. I’ll keep you posted on how brilliant (or otherwise) it turns out to be.

Note to self: Buy cool new shoes tomorrow.

Andrea Gibson

Instead of writing something of my own today, here is a link to something beautiful by someone far more brilliant than me. I had the pleasure of listening to Andrea Gibson at my school once, a year or two ago. (One, I think.)

Hula Hooping in Bed

This morning I discovered that, if I stand on my bed, there is enough space in my room to hula-hoop. This was, needless to say, a thrilling realization. If I try to neck-hoop it gets a bit too close to the ceiling, and I’ll probably hit the sprinkler on my ceiling eventually if I do that. But hooping around the hips is no problem at all in that location, and I may be able to shoulder-hoop as well.

I wonder what my housemates will think of the creaking-bed sounds which they’ll now be regularly hearing from my room? Hmm…
