So yeah, I’m suffering through a long ass break in our summer schedule, a three week break that at times feels it may never end. Luckily for me, I can see the light at the end of the tunnel, Thursday is a short five days away, aw hell let’s say three, it’s almost midnight now. Anyway, it hasn’t been easy, all work and no ballet make Jack a dull boy.
I’ve done what I can to distract myself all I can, I haven’t had this much free time off from ballet since I called it quits when I got out of grad school back in the Bush administration. So I’m sure your thinking, gee Mr Blog Writer, just what did you do to make it through it through these daunting almost three weeks of late August two-thousand eleven?
Were you balled up in the fetal position while gently sobbing? Yes, most of the time. And how did you know that?
Did you learn a new language? No, I’m sticking with this one language thing.
Did you do something good for society? No, sorry.
Did you call that cute girl who gave you her number? No, but I will, I promise! Jeeze get off my back already.
Did you write that article for the GUB site? Well, I started it but I don’t like how it’s going.
Did you travel anywhere exciting? No, I haven’t gone anywhere since last summer when I traipsed around South America.
Did you use your Theraband like you said you were going to do? Ah, well not everyday. OK no. And don’t ask about stretching every day either because the answer is surprisingly the same.
Did you resolve what classes you are going to take next term? Well kinda, I’ll keep my Thursday and Saturday classes, but finding a Ballerina Class ™ that fits my crazy schedule is causing problems.
So what if anything did you do for nearly a better part of a month? Well, there was the pool I had to make sure the water stayed wet, or did that water get me instead? I didn’t die running the Warrior Dash along with Ballet Companion (two people did). I bounced two checks, oops. I made sure the internet was functioning at all hours of the day and night. I made snarky comments on others blogs. I went back to work, my annual three months of freedom has came to a close. Basically I did nothing of consequence, or did I?
I’m pretty sure I’m using these shoes in the proper way. However, it has been awhile and I could be wrong.
