what i despise the most about my parents are their limits. i feel like they hold back and waste so much of my potential. i hate being stuck at home all day. i have to, and i feel a need to keep moving. they don’t let me do things-as simple as going to a ballet class. their leash upon my being makes me feel trapped inside a box. hence the name, inside the box, as my tumblr. ive been...
gotta perform 2011: show#5-sunday, 4:00
it’s over. gotta perform 2011 is over. it’s really only one weekend, or one week if you want to stretch it, or just performance madness. from dress rehearsal to the real moments on stage-there it is. the show was so much better than anyone expected. in its own way, it was just quite; quite graceful. it’s an odd way of phrasing it-but i say graceful because it was coherent....

i really do hate people.
and, that’s why i dance. at least the bother and pain escapes for a good 2 minutes.
gotta perform 2011: dress rehearsal #1.
hmm, nothing too complex this year. only wanted to say that the pictures i took this year turned out amazing. some of them are so beautiful and flawless, part of the reason why we’re all here in the first place. to dance. i’m so pleased, and feeling (as i posted on facebook) fabulously fulfilled. i’ll have to figure out how to get all the pictures to the right dancers and...
