. the relationship i have with my clients. teaching them about their bodies, encouraging them to work harder for themselves, celebrating their tiny victories has been an incredible tool in my own self-development.
. the dance bug is gnawing on my bottom. the fog has lifted and i’m back in class. motivated. back to staring at audition boards. back at it, trying to wiggle my foot in some doors.
. helping the fella move this weekend lit a fire under me. i need to hurry up and move out. also, i’m in love with crown heights.
. preparations for this mba thing is scary and frustrating, but it’s been a great wakeup call.
. the back & forth bickering my sister and i have on facebook. makes the distance seem so much less extreme.
. the unsolicited advise of my clients. some of the time.
. bianca. i think of her every time i put on my tretorn boots. :)
. justin, a practicing lawyer and a professional dancer working with a very successful touring company. he makes enough money to be able to pursue his creative career thoroughly. we danced together in darcy’s company last year. he is such a massive inspiration to me!
. i’m performing the roll of an african spirit at the natural history museum this weekend. it’s not exactly glamorous, but it’s a paying gig and it looks good on my resume. i feel like i’m starting all over… maybe a little wiser this time. big dreams sometimes need tiny steps!
. bartering. a custom yoga mat bag for lia’s help in finding me scholarships. lighting design services for a few months of free class from calen and chris. i need to make more of these transactions happen more often.
