Yes, I'm here! I apologize profusely for being gone over a month. December was completely insane, with work (I work in retail so every day was like trying to go up a packed-out down escalator), trying to make presents, and squeeze in and figure other things out as well, but some how I did manage some time to think. And two things have been finalized. I'm moving back home and I'm going to start dancing again. Both I am very relieved and happy about.
Moving out and getting my own apartment has been a really good experience, but it's also been a hard one. I've learned a lot about myself and what kind of roommate I'll need if I ever have to share a place with someone again (until I'm married and then none of it will matter, me being queen of the house and all...). Anyway, now I will soon have my own form of transportation, a room that is one hundred percent mine, Internet, the money so that I can dance, and the priceless feeling of being settled.
Dance. I just had my first classes yesterday and it is so wonderful to be back! I'd missed it more than I knew. I'm dancing 6 hours a week, taking ballet, lyrical, and contemporary, all of my favorites. There isn't much else to say right now, except I've missed you all and hope you had a wonderful last year and have a wonderful new one!
love to you all,
PS: oh and thank you so much for your response to my previous post. You really are beautiful!
