What is the most controversial thing you’ve ever written on your blog? What compelled you to write it?
I often find myself holding back from writing my true feelings on here, which is kind of stupid, because the people who actually know me, and know that this is my blog, really shouldn’t be surprised when I choose to voice my opinion. Continue reading →
How often do you dip into your memory for blog post topics vs. discussing the here and now?
It’s interesting to think about some of the posts that I’ve written, and how regularly I find myself dipping into my memory bank. But I’ve also noticed that there’s a lot of cross-over or repetition between the two post-a-day challenges I’m doing.
There are a number of aspects of my life that I’d like to go back and do-over, but it’s quite hard to pinpoint just one. I guess if I had to pick just one, I think one of the major ones would be to go back in time and change my dancing focus to begin at a younger age, and at a different school. Part of that change would also incorporate my parents being able to afford to send me to dance school or at the least, a performing arts high school so I could purely focus on dance and dramatically increase my skill level and range of talent from being able to study and train with some incredibly talented mentors.
It’s one of the biggest regrets that I have in my life – not heavily developing my skills at a much younger age, but at the same time, I’m glad that I didn’t. I know so many kids who were pushed and pushed through the dance world by their parents and they ended up resenting them because they got to miss out on so much of their childhood. My parents on the other hand were more than happy to support my venture as best as they could, but they most certainly didn’t want to force me to do something that I didn’t want to, and I’ll always love them for that. It allowed me to still enjoy being a kid and doing kid stuff with my friends and creating memories that weren’t revolving purely around dancing.
