Happy (belated) Thanksgiving!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING! What a beautiful day to celebrate all the blessings that God has given to us! I am thankful for so much, and I can't even make a list of it all! But I can tell you that I'm thankful for you!

I whip my hair back and forth, I have a crook in my neck

You guessed it, last night in tap, we danced to that super popular song, "Whip my Hair" by Willow Smith. Not my favorite song ever, but we all got to take our hair out of our ponytails!!! Let's just say, hair was flying everywhere.... I don't have REALLY long hair (Just below the shoulder), but it's so thick that it was a little crazy (I'm not looking forward to brushing it this morning). It was a really fun combination!!! Unfortunately, I have a crook in my neck now....

Ballet: We aren't making to much progress... We're about halfway through

Tap: I'm not so sure if we are doing a dance, because we did a whip my hair combination instead....

Modern: AWEEEEEEEEEESOME!!!!!!!!! It looks super awesome! So amazing! Simply astonishing!

Student Piece: We made a lot of tracks this past week, we don't have rehearsal this week, and we might moved to Fridays next week BECAUSE....

... I might have told you that we are moving to a new building, and we already sold someone else our old building. Well, they are kicking us out in December, and the new building isn't going to be ready yet. So we will temporarily move to an ice rink where they have 1 studio. Because they only have one studio, I my Ballet 4 class is combined with Ballet 3, my Modern 3 class is combined with Modern 2, and my Jass 4 class is combined with Jazz 3.... Not to excited about that, but oh well, it's only for 3 weeks...

Detective Jasmine is LAME

So we are not wearing what I thought we were, BUT we did get to try on our modern costumes yesterday!!!!

We have the pink and orange ones. They look awful in the picture, but GORGEOUS in real life. The colors aren't as vivid, and the girl in the picture is at a weird angle so you can't see the dress very well.

Happy Birthday Quinlyn!!!

Today is a very special friend of mine's birthday! QUINLYN!

Last year I did a birthday video tribute. I had the tribute al lready this year, then we got a new computer, so sadly, my tribute got deleted. Sorry :(

Besides! It's good to be different! So this year, I'm gonna do an acrostic!

Quirky- (In a good way) She is full of craziness and silliness
Upbeat- Quinlyn is always full of life, and happiness
Indestructable- You cannot pull Quinlyn apart. She is strong, and will not let someone get the best of her
Nifty- Quinlyn is very creative in everything! Especially her knitting and photography
Loyal- Quinlyn always keeps her promises and always remember to call you when she's supposed to
Youthful- She easily ignores people who tell her she's to old for things
Nice- She is sweet and loving, always trying to build people up, and NEVER to tear them down

I hope you liked it Quinlyn! Have a FABULOUS birthday!

P.S. I'm still working on your present, you should receive it in a week or two!

Detective Jasmine is on the case!

What case? The case of the unknown modern costume (DUN DUN DUNNNNNNNNN!). Yesterday, November 11, 2010, around  5:30 P.M. at my dance studio, I heard some important news.

"I FOUND THE PERFECT COSTUME FOR MODERN 3! But I can't find the picture" says the director.

"What does it look like?" Asked the Modern 2 teacher.

"It's got one strap, it's got a strip across the bodice, it is flowy on top, and shorts on the bottom. It comes in multiple colors."

We didn't see a picture, but I'm gonna try and make a few guesses of what our costume might be!

Wow, Detective Jasmine is lame. That's all I could find. Oh well :P

Just can't put my pen down! (well more like Keyboard)

Yes! I am writing! What am I writing? I'M SO GLAD YOU ASKED!!!!! I am writing a novel for NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month).

My Novel is called "Alone in the Dark"  Here's my summary:

"10 year old Chastity Grace was born blind, deaf, and mute. Her parents were wicked to her, they beat her, and tortured her. Chastity Grace couldn't cry out or merely make a noise for help. One day, she felt a vibration, and her eyes and ears opened up, for a brief moment. Using this special power Chastity Grace ran away from home. Along the way of finding her new life, Chastity Grace starts to understand how she is sometimes able see, hear, and speak. Chastity has a lot of fun living her new life, and trying to meet her biggest goal, permanently being able to see."

I'm going for 10,000 words, but so far it's kind of hard to fit time to right in, so I'm only at 2,815.

Are you doing NaNoWriMo? What do you think of my novel?

I need to start posting more!!!

Sorry, COME ON!!! 11 hours!!! Forgive me here!

 Ballet: I don't remember if I told you this or not, but my ballet 3 class is doing a dance! It's to a song from Coppellia. We have only done the entrance, but we just started.

Tap: We are gonna do a dance for tap! We haven't started yet.

Student piece: It's about Children on the playground! I love that! We are pretty far along!

Modern: Fabulous, simply fabulous! We are pretty far, and our dance is looking great!

How's the rest of classes? Pretty good! Pointe is getting harder, and we are learning new things :)

For tap, my teacher said she wants to move another girl and me up after dance concert!!! We also learned the this really fast, hard dance (but so awesome and fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) called Ode to Starbucks!

Yes I mean this! We didn't learn the whole dance, just a section. But my teacher told us in the real dance, it starts where everyone is standing around drinking coffee. But then they get all hyped up and start tap dancing (ridiculously fast mind you!), and then they slow down cause they need to drink more coffee, and then the process keeps going, but then at the end, they all die, cause they are low on energy, and Starbucks is closed. *faint* HOW HORRIBLE! SIMPLY HORRIBLE!
