I’m so looking forward to finishing this National Board stuff. Everything is falling in place just great. A couple more weeks of focus and discipline and I’ll be done with my portfolio. I feel pretty good about it. I’m mostly proud of how I’ve been able to manage my time and stress levels through this. I’ve had to be a bit anti-social, but I never got overly stressed. I think this is the first big project I’ve taken on where I’ve been able to balance out work and manage my schedule without biting off more than I could chew.
Anyway, I am just chomping at the bit at all of the possibilities that are out there as creative outlets for me when this baby is done. My studio space (we’re re-doing the garage) is underway and I am hoping it will be workable soon.
I went to a teacher’s workshop today at Montalvo. There was a dance class that I took that was so fun and inspiring. I realized that, thought I’ve danced a ton in musicals I’ve been in, no one has ever really taught me how to dance. Plus, there was this hip-hop class that was totally sweet. The community college down the street is offering hip-hop classes for their spring quarter and I’m thinking of signing up. That would be in addition to my volleyball class.
The think I love the best about sports & dance is that it’s exercise that isn’t completely focused on the exercise part. It’s focused on the competition and the expression. I love that. Be expressive and get exercise at the same time. That’s the way it should be.
Anyone else feeling inspired lately?
