ASA Alumni Dance Diary: Power walking in heels

I could not get out of bed this morning. I was exhausted, but I still had plenty of time to get ready. Since it was chilly this morning I decided to take the bus. I thought it would be warmer and quicker than walking to class. However, I should have just walked. The bus was more crowded than yesterday. The bus driver couldn’t drive until everyone was behind the white line, but more people kept getting on the bus which made this more difficult. Since it took longer to cram everyone behind the white line, the bus ride was longer. So I was late to my theater class!

I got off a few stops early or I would’ve been even later, but it was still a decent walk. I got there at 8:05 and we have an attendance sign in sheet on the door. What I didn’t know was that our TA highlights the names of people who haven’t signed in by 8:00, so now I have a .2 absence which is so stupid.

It was also one of the most boring classes we’ve ever had, so I struggled with staying awake.

A Step Above Dance Batavia Coffee Breakfast Homework

After class, I went to grab breakfast and work on some homework. I made sure I still had time to stretch though. I’m so glad I did, because ballet went so much better. I was on top of my leg and was able to do all the combinations well and it was just a really good class.

After that, I went to my interview. I had to rush from wearing ballet attire into interview attire. I power walked across campus in my heels and still made it there early. I had to meet with three different ladies, but I felt like I was not prepared for some of the questions they asked me. However, I covered it up pretty well, I think.

Horton was good too. Our teacher was in a bad mood at first, but she cheered up by the end of class. She said “I’m letting you guys go early because that’s the best class you’ve ever had. I don’t give compliments, so you know I mean it.”

So, that was really nice to hear.

I had a break until rehearsal, so I had to go back to my dorm and have a meeting with my roommate and CA. Basically, he isn’t letting me switch rooms, but I think he is finally realizing how psychotic she is…

Rehearsal was rough. Everyone was falling all over the place and the floors were really slippery. We just ran through the entire ballet.

After rehearsal, I went back to my dorm and had an hour to get ready for the Halloween party. I decided to go as Kim Possible since it was already things I had in my closet which was easy.
