Last night, I went to go see an advanced screening of The Vow, starring Channing Tatum and Rachel McAdams. Don’t worry, I won’t spoil any part of the movie - I’ll just say, at the very least, that I was disappointed.
But my critics and values may differ from yours completely so don’t lower your expectations just yet…but at the same time, don’t go in which such high expectations either. That may have been what killed it for me. I don’t know, lately I’ve become quite analytical of things from people to food and even film - I just felt like the producers had such a winning concept and storyline in hand, but failed to convey it and the associated emotions to their full potential.
Oh well. Bummer.
I also realized that I can’t handle large amounts of estrogen at once. As in, I ABHORE hanging out in groups composed of only girls. Well, certain types of girls at least - those who are attention-seeking, fake, and full-of-themselves (the worst part, is that they compete against each other. It’s like a fricken’ zoo). Sorry, I guess I do get annoyed with people easily but first impressions really do matter. Thank god I didn’t join a sorority.
On a more recent update, today I voluntered at the “I’m Going to College” program and got to hang out with a bunch of middle schoolers (who were definitely dripping some swag sauce), and watched my first college basketball game (^_^). Next week is pretty much Hell Week though.
Math Midterm on Monday, Psych Midterm on Tuesday, Chem Quiz on Friday with a Midterm the following week.
On top of that, I still plan to hit the gym 4x, yoga 2x, and dance practice 2x (+casting/blocking) this week. Oh, and study, study, study ERRRNIGHT :/
And my neck and back still ache from Ashley’s piece - but I’m super excited for our set! ONE MONTH CRUNCH TIME YO.
I’m going to practice and practice until I can dance so well that people will be like “AWW SHIET, WHO’S THAT CHICK?” I want to have my own style, invent my own moves, but most importantly, I want to build up a sense of confidence in my own abilities - so that I can go all out. So I could inspire others the way other dancers inspire me.
But with my morning classes in the way, I don’t know how much energy I can actually put into practices :/ Like today, I almost collapsed on the way back from KCN’s workshop. My head hurt so much, that I continually couldn’t remember the next move in the piece. I’m super grateful for the opportunity of actually making my way onto a dance crew my freshman year - but now it’s time to commit. It’s time to train pushed by incessant perseverance and self-devotion, time to learn from the older and more experienced kids on RnG, and it’s time to give respect so that I can later be respected. Dance-off is over, it’s the real deal now.
Regardless, I’m excited though. It’s like a whole, new chapter is opening for me - I’m actually doing this and I’m going for it. I might not be where I want to be yet, but just wait.
On another note, tomorrow’s the start of Assassins - YA’LL ARE GOING DOWN.
Yesterday, I developed a much higher level of respect for dancing. It was an open dance-off on campus, which they hold every Friday, but last night, there was JUST SO MUCH TALENT. The freestyling, popping, bboy stances, tricks … damn, like I’m speechless. No joke, the whole time … mindblown. LOL, especially when the underwear/strip face-off happened (I can now say I have been mooned in college…)
And then Hazel and I had a face-off with Aaron and Chris. OH DEARRR
Now, time for some all-you-can-eat KBBQ with Erwin!
