Stop. Breathe. Listen. Breate again. … Resume your daily routine.
Apologies in advancing for not posting in a while. As I previously mentioned I have been taking dance lessons for several months now. Soon after my graduation, I made the decision to participate in the upcoming Dance-o-Rama competition in Costa Mesa, CA. Since then, I have been taking no less than 5 lessons a week, sometimes 8. So between that, training for Rainier, working, and just living life…I’ve been a bit overwhelmed.
But the competition is this weekend. I will be dancing two dances each of Foxtrot, Waltz, Salsa, Samba, Tango, Hustle, Merengue, Rumba, Swing, and Cha Cha, as well as an awesome solo in Tango. So wish me luck in Costa Mesa, it should be a great time!
On another note, I’m a little nervous to go back to Chicago when this job is over. I’ve really extended myself out here (see above!) and have had a great time. A lot of that has to do with the fact that I’ve never really had a job that’s kept me in one place for four months at a time. So I’ve been able to take 5 lessons a week. I’ve been able to join a soccer team. I’ve been able to go rock climbing and hiking after work. I’ve been able to meet people and make friends and do things on a regular basis. And I really enjoy being able to do that. Just the ramblings of an East coast boy displaced to the other side of the country while currently living in the middle. Time to go practice some more. :-)
