I'm baaaack!!

Been super busy the last couple weeks, but just got back from Florida so I'm ready to get back to work on, you know - my LSATs which are next weekend!!!! GAH! Not ready . . . not ready . . .

Super fun stuff though, this weekend . . . met Mia Michaels - she signed my dance shoes! She's freakin amazing. I'm like a total dork and in love with her. Took a class with her and my body still hurts today (stretching afterwards is always good - note to self) - but not only is she incredibly amazing as a choreographer, but it's just always so inspiring to hear people who absolutely love their life and are breathing their passions through other people. And she made my body move in ways it never has before and made me love being a dancer even more because of the power I hold to express myself through that medium. Love it!!! I will scan in my signed picture of her when, you know - I learn how to do that. So, next year around this time - be looking for it. =D

I also saw a bunch of my friends from South Florida, and it made me realize how much I miss the close friendships I've always been used to. I live so far away from so many people that I love. I used to have such a hard time with goodbyes when I was younger - and taught myself how to cope by just realizing how much people affect me and change me as a person for knowing them 2 hours or 2 decades. It made me less sad to see people go, but I don't find those connections so much anymore. Is life really too busy to have what I see as the most important thing in it? It's too bad if so, because I'm too far away to really hang on the the ones I have established in the past. I just miss my friends and my family, I think. Very emo today - not a good day to say goodbye to a friend I never got to know. Oh well.

Are you going to the So You Think You Can Dance Tour when it comes to KC in a couple weeks? I'll be there with bells on! My wife too... She (hearts) Mia as much as you do it sounds.

Wife is a dance coach in Gardner.

Shane - I coach the dance team in Blue Valley - we'll probably see each other at competitions. . . not going to the SYTYCD thing - will be out of town. Please enjoy it for me!!
btw - after reading your blog the other day, I think we were separated at birth . . . except that FoxTrot is undoubtedly the best comic there is and you left it off your list.
Thanks for checking out my blog - and having a kick ass blog that I can spend many hours catching up on.

Word. I like FoxTrot, but it's gone. I went to school in BV - 2 years at North and then Northwest opened. Finished there. That should date me pretty accurately.
