Well, it looks like I made it to Sunday! Woo hoo!!! 🙂
The days following Wednesday (Wednesday included) were much less jam-packed. My weeks seem to be like that: a rollercoaster- busy Monday and Tuesday and then it calms down Wednesday-Friday and starts to pick up steam again on Saturday. I guess it makes time seem to go even faster.
So Wednesday I had Tap, Dance Studio Management where we turned in our Floor Plans as posted here. Then Jazz Pedagogy, teaching Adult Ballet in the Community Dance Center (CDC) and one hour in the office. Then Tyler and I went shopping for fabric one of Kim’s Thesis dances.
Thursday was Jazz, which I am SO glad I am back in Jazz this semester- I’m really loving it!, then a long break to do some homework, Graduate Research and Writing for Dance, observing in the Community Dance Center and then Babysitting. I babysat Doran and Drew, the two girls who were in my Pre-Ballet Class about 1.5 years ago. I cannot get over how I met them when Doran was 4.5-5 ish and Drew was only 3! Doran just turned 8 on February 1st and Drew turned 6 in December! Unbelievable! They are such sweet little girls! I can only hope and pray my kiddos are that sweet! 🙂
Friday was Tap, cutting Tutu fabric during my break, Choreography, Dance Studio Management, Assisting in the Community Dance Center (we started our Showcase Dance to “It’s A Small World”) and then Katy and I started working on our Capstone Portfolio Project. We worked from a little after 6pm until almost 10pm, although we did spend some time catching up because we only see each other in class and never on a social basis. We have decided to change that! 🙂
We received our Capstone Portfolio Project on Wednesday. This project is a part of our Dance Studio Management Class so it goes hand-in-hand with our Studio Project and our job of producing the Community Dance Center’s Showcase for the end of the year. The Capstone Portfolio Project is all the legwork and planning of this Showcase. For instance, Katy, our Sound and Lighting Specialist, Anna, our Stage Manager and myself, the Costume Mistress, are assigned to create the Production Timeline for our Showcase (i.e. when costumes should be handed out, when music needs to be approved, when the Parent Information Packets need to go out, etc.). Anna went to see the Oklahoma City Ballet Production of Giselle and had already purchased her tickets, so Katy and I started it on Friday and she will help us in the next stages! It should be a really fun project!
Our Portfolio Project and Studio Project are making me SO excited to own a studio. It is a lot of work and a lot of money, but it just seems SO exciting! It really is what I’ve dreamed of doing my entire life! I can’t wait to be able to make it a reality! With this class and these projects I feel like I am really being prepared and being given the tools to make my dreams come true. So exciting! 🙂 This is EXACTLY what I’m meant to do, and that is a great feeling! 🙂
Saturday I taught my Creative Movement class and my Pre-Ballet class. I love those children SO much. They are the sweetest things in the entire world! (Once again, making me want to own a studio!) Then Tyler and I ran to Wal-Mart to get some necessities. We came home and I did some organizing- made a Costume Mistress Binder, hole-punched papers, etc. Then I babysat Amelia from about 7pm-11pm. Amelia was also in one of my Pre-Ballet classes last year and the year before. She has since moved onto the Level 1 Class (the “Big-Girl-Blue-Class”), so it was nice to see her! Again, I can’t believe I met her when she was just 3 years old and she is now 5.5 years old. She has grown SO much! She looks like she is at least 8 years old because she is so tall! Her parents are tall too, but she is just growing like a weed! And of course she had a million stories to tell me! It was good to see her! 🙂
Today we woke up and did laundry and of course everyone else was too because it’s…. SUPERBOWL SUNDAY! Then Tyler and I went to JCPenny to get that silly ink-tag taken off my shirt (finally!) and to get him a watch for Valentine’s Day. He has been digging some holes at work (in the RED Oklahoma dirt) and doesn’t keep his phone with him, he never knows what time it is so he asked for a watch… I had to oblige him because he NEVER asks for ANYTHING! 😉 Then it was lunch in the food court at the mall and off to Kinko’s to make some copies! Now, its homework and then a SAM meeting at 6pm! (Did I really say less busy?)
As for SUPERBOWL SUNDAY? I actually don’t have any plans to watch the game… I’ll be at my meeting! 🙂 I haven’t really had the chance to get into football this year… oh well… maybe next year.
Well, it is time to get back to some more homework… or Monday-Wednesday will be worse than this week, if that’s even possible?
Until Next Time,
