Be Inspired.

My favorite musician, Matt Nathanson, Tweeted this earlier today, its now my new favorite quote.

"Inspired by the fact that perfect is just never going to happen"
That is how I want to think from now on when I choreograph, teach, and dance myself. It's never going to be "Perfect" The dance is constantly growing, steps are molding into each other. Practice will always make better but by what definition is it perfect? There will always be the person who is an 8th of a second off from everyone else, the person who forgot section a repeated after section c, the four year old who waves at their mom and sucks their fingers instead of doing the dance on stage. Thats life... you can either make a big deal about it or you can brush it off and keep going. Be inspired by chaos, destruction, and inperfection... it is what makes things beautiful

Dance For Her,

Somewhere behind the dancer you've become, the hours of rehearsals, the teachers who pushed you, the family who believed in you, and the audiences who cheered for you: is the little girl who twirled around the living room. The one who fell in love with the stage and never looked back... dance for her
Thank you Alyson for sharing that quote<3

That I almost fell out of the drive through window today at work.

oh! if you're wondering where it is I work... its here
anyway... it was embarassingly hillarious, so I wanted to share it with the two people who read this, hi mom. everyone.
Hope everyone else had a great St. Patricks day!!

OH OH! and I should hear about the Theater by the Sea that I auditioned for by April 1st. If I don't hear from them then I didn't make it. Heres hoping! I've got my fingers crossed!

Some People Give Up Things For Lent

I do not..
okay hear me out, because I am a catholic, but some people forget there is more than one rule. During lent you give up something that is an addiction, something possibly associated with one of the sins (usually gluttony) I, however, don't really have a thing that I HAVE to have on a daily basis. Heck, I can even go a few days without facebook no problem.
So I do the other half of lent, where you take on something in order of repent. For the last four years I was a member of my school community outreach program so I actually did lots of things during lent without even having to go look for one.
Now.. well.. not so lucky.
SO I am blogging to ask for a bit of a favor.  I am looking for a good project or two for my sister and I to take part in. if it is something that requires actually going to, its gotta be around the Massachusetts south shore area (obviously I will leave the area just don't send me to southern CT, thats not cool!! haha) or if you know of other great ways that you can get involved through websites, mailings (like for soldiers?) or anything like that it would be so super helpful!

Thanks everyone! Hope everythings been going well in bloggerville!! I hope to stop in with some good news about some dance updates in my life.. keepin the fingers crossed =)

I bought a calendar today

And its the best idea I have had in weeks!!!!
I feel like I have so many adventures to be going on in the next couple of months and I just cant seem to keep any of it straight! People keep asking me what I am doing with my life on this day or this day if I'm free on this day which is three months from now.. and I have no clue!!! so I did the responsible thing, now I am a calendar girl. Its hung on the wall in front of my bed so that I can see it as soon as I wake up in the morning.
ah, the sweet smell of organization! I am starting to feel a little bit better! Now I just gotta get this room cleaned -_-

Friends in High Places

My last week hasn't been my strongest. Shakey love, bills that just wont seem to be up to date, a room that is still a mess after cleaning almost daily.
And yet I'm okay.
I'm okay because I have Joe to call when I cry. Who IMs me (who does that still?) just to see how my day is going. I have a best friend.
The best part is that distance isn't a factor with him. He doesn't care that I live an hour away. He doesn't care that his schedule is crazy and my schedule is crazy... When I am about to cry, punch someone in the face, or hide in my room and just lay in my bed for a whole week, He is there to kick my ass, make me laugh, and reassure me that as long as I am not dead, then life surely goes on.
So thanks joe, for being a really awesome best friend.
