The title says it all, guys. I haven’t posted in almost two months. Don’t worry, I’m fine. I’ve just been SUPER busy with school lately. I just finished my midterm exams last week, and I’m still recovering from them. Luckily, my studying paid off, and I scored in the A to B range for all of my exams. I’ve still got my eyes on those straight A’s! (In case you didn’t know, I’m a chronic perfectionist).
I thought I’d just write this post to update everyone on what’s been going on in my life. So far, this year has been the best year of my life. I go to a great school. It’s a lot bigger than my old school, which is nice because I have more opportunities to make new friends. The friends I have met this year are some of the closest friendships I’ve made in my life, and I know I’m going to be lifelong friends with a lot of people from school. The workload can be stressful at times, but, astonishingly, I’m able to get everything done in a timely manner.
I’m not saying that everything is sunshine and lollipops. There are always going to be mean teachers and popular cliques. I’ve found that I don’t have to let all that negativity affect me. All I have to do to be happy is sticking with my family and close friends. Sunshine is more powerful than storm clouds will ever be, and even in a storm, there’s always a rainbow afterwards. Some of the brightest stars shine in darkness.
Aside from writing, my other favorite activities are dance and yoga. I go to yoga class once a week (I had to miss it this week because of a snowstorm), and I dance at my school four days a week. I go to a studio once a week to do hip-hop dance. Hip-hop is probably my favorite style of dance because technique doesn’t matter a lot, it’s more about personality and really feeling and connecting with the music. That being said, I do more “traditional” styles of dance at school (ballet, tap, jazz), and I think that training has been important because every dancer needs to be knowledgeable about all styles of dance. I also started taking a painting class this past week, and we’ve been doing traditional Japanese brush painting as our first project. Visual art was one of my favorite classes in 8th grade, so I’m very excited to be doing more of it this semester in High School.
I hope you’ve all enjoyed this little insight into my life over the past few months. I can’t wait to see what the next few months will hold, and I am going to a lot of different classes and camps this coming summer, which I am also looking forward to.
