小陈故事肉骨茶 | concluding our food trail with comfort food for the soul. i’ve lost track of the amount of food i’ve eaten today ah well #bakkutteh #mystomachswollen

i really was as happy as i looked. they say all the best people are a little bit cray, and the mad hatter leads them all #madhatter #dance

it’s a scientifically proven fact that once you have something important to accomplish (such as three research papers in the next week), everything that is irrelevant and distracting suddenly becomes a thousand times more interesting and engaging. 

four months of intensive trainings for hall dance competition and joint dance concert has finally come to a conclusion. through the process, i have amassed a startling amount of injuries, so surprising that the fact that i am still able to get up in the morning is nothing short of a miracle. old injuries have returned to plague me, and for the first time ever, my back hurts because of excessive use. the latter is the most worrying thing on my mind, because of the dangerous implications and possibly permanent disability due to it. perhaps it’s time to withdraw into an immobile shell and commit myself to solely using the only part of my physical self that hasn’t suffered some sort of traumatic impact (my brain). 

nonetheless, this mini-journey has been fairly fulfilling (side note: i would be pissed as shit if i didn’t experience at least some form of growth as a return for the various ailments i have accumulated). i feel myself growing as a dancer and also as a person, but it’s not easy to quantify these intangible things, so that’s hard to say for sure. but i am a strong advocate of trial by fire, and tempering of character and self through hardship, so i think this process is something that works in my favour. i do feel like these few months have made my system swing wildly out of balance, so i want to regain my centre and bring my mind-heart-body back into the ideal state of stability. the previous sentence is not to be misconstrued as some new-age hippy zen mumbo-jumbo; this is truly how i feel. 

checklist for the holidays (hopefully):

internship/ work

r recital

cgl + spms pageant choreo

tuition

holiday

pressing desire to make sure that my time is well-spent and that i fulfill as many things as i want to and can do. life is no longer about having the best of one thing, i want the best of ALL worlds, and it i have to run myself semi-ragged to get there, i’ll do it. no doubt about that.

peace.
