Anything an ex-ballerina who likes reading and grilled cheese and who is finding her way through university and life in general might write about. She is also fighting demons in her head and convincing herself that things are ok even though she has no idea what is going on. Hoping that writing will help find her way again.
Below is the old statement written years ago:
Life, times, thoughts, the works of a senior in Toronto, aspiring professional ballerina in training…
With a further encompassing passion for great reads, cozy sweaters, nostalgic TV shows, and cheesecake.
As we all know, life can be very busy with many thoughts, both relevant and foolish, whirling around your head constantly. Sometimes there are just too many of these floating tidbits to contain in a girl’s brain so this is where they go.
Ultimately a sort of journal of my days in a ballet school, this blog mainly focuses on two aspects that consume my everyday life : ballet and books.
See, I dance around 6 hours a day Monday to Friday. And I am at school for around 10 hours a day. It is tiring and at times extremely stressful, but I do enjoy it. It is my sixth year training professionally in ballet and my passion for this art form hasn’t changed. Contrary to most teens, I must admit that I enjoy school. I do not particularly care for homework, but I love learning. It can be difficult to juggle homework and physical exhaustion at the end of the day and that is when literature is my hero to help me wind down.
It is a small school with a small library, but boy does it contain some great books. They are hand-picked by our librarian and I always have an urge to take out absolutely everything in there whenever I walk between the shelves. We have our own little collection of books in the basement, where favourites and “emergency” books for a shortage crisis are stocked up.
This blog will also contain a hodge-podge of little notes on some of my many other interests, including philosophy and religion, art and writing, and really just my ideas on random topics that I have an itch to talk about.
I do hope this does not turn out too boring and that I will defeat the not-finish-what-you-started bug with this adventure.
Hello, thanks for visiting, and welcome, stranger, to the life and times of a booky bunhead.
