I've been pretty busy lately. There have been so many things that I've wanted to write about, but doing all these things have left me with little time and an even smaller amount of sleep. I've been having a blast with things, and I'm really happy. I am always respectful of difficult times because I feel like I learn the most from them, but with the last couple of years, this is one gift for which I am truly thankful.
A few weeks ago, I started talking ballet classes. I was so excited and intrigued by taking the class, but I was also complete terrified that I was going to make an idiot out of myself. Now that I've started, I've realized a few things. I probably do look a little dumb and am not naturally great at it, but it's so much fun to be learning and doing something new. I found out that I have special feet. Sometimes it's great to not be good at something and be able to look forward to getting better. More importantly, I've learned that my time in there takes me away from everything else in life. It's a refuges. I concentrate so hard on what I’m learning, I forget to worry about everything else in the world.
Also, I’m researching my family tree. There is something so happy and comforting to see a long line of relatives. I love to look at old photographs and see glimpses of myself and feel that connection.
I signed up for a group on Last.FM where I am paired each month with another user and we create "mixtapes" for each other. I love to make music mixes. My first tape is my life's soundtrack.
