So in dance today I realized that these are my last few classes.. ever. I’ve been dancing there for fourteen years. It’ll be so weird working backstage next year rather than being on the stage. Not only has fourteen years in dance gone by fast, but also school. I feel like I was applying to college so long ago for some reason.. followed by intense worry about not getting into any school (which pretty much happened - got into 4, waitlisted at 2, and applied to 11). And now I know where I’ll be living for the next four years and it’s just crazy. I would have never thought that I’d be moving to Seattle as a freshman. I guess it all just comes down to the fact that things change. I wanted to stay fairly close to home and instead I’m going 6 hours by plane away. I hope I’m not disappointing my childhood dreams (I also wanted to be a veterinarian, oops).
Anyways, I hope I have something to remember. Right now as I reflect, I feel like I didn’t accomplish much here. My freshman, sophomore, junior, and senior year all seem about the same.. actually if anything, my freshman and sophomore year were a lot more fun than the last two. My high school is nothing like the ones in the movies and quite frankly, there’s not much I enjoyed about my high school or the people in it. I did love my teachers though, as lame and nerdy as it sounds; I had great teachers. And maybe I’m just being cynical, I’m sure I’ll remember some things from high school, but I doubt it’ll be as fruitful as the memories other people had.. and I suppose that’s what is disappointing me.
On the brightside, I’m probably going to Montreal for the jazz festival which Will and Kate Middleton are attending. Also, I’m going to orientation in Seattle in 27 days!
