Teaching on my birthday is my favorite thing. Hi, I’m 30, and I gave full sized cupcakes to three year olds and I’m sure their parents hate me
Hi, it’s been a minute, new blog post. Link in bio.

Mischief Managed.
I solemnly swear that I am up to no good. #leakycon #leakycon2018
Y’all, check out my friend Baileys announcement!! I’m so excited for her and super pumped to watch this series she’s a part of! #Repost @catchingbreaths with @get_repost ・・・ The concept is simple: follow someone’s journey from surgery to stage. Showing the life of a mucus mutant. Showing the life of a bilingual Deaf family. Showing the life of a dancer and @companythreesixty dancers. It technically hits all the hashtags: #spoonie #deaf #adultballerina #bodypositive #chronicillness. It hopefully connects with many communities and provides another voice in the chorus of those wanting representation in media abound. It is positive: a positive network with a positive focus wanting to counter the negative swarmy troll farm that is most modern media to date. But... what if the concept becomes a reality? What if I show not just the recovery from latest rounds of surgeries... but the pain and swelling and funk between? What if I don’t fulfill some sort of diagnostic paradigm being that I am an Atypical diagnosis (and someone who hopes not to be defined by that anyways where I can)? What if we capture not just the invigorating process of putting together a show with women I ferociously admire and protect... but also, how totally messy dance life can be? What if we showcase a family that’s equal parts Deaf as hearing... yet our variable mix of signing, reading lips, caption and speech isn’t in keeping with what the world wants from us? Choosing to share our story has come with a lot of IFs... but we are braving it none the less. Although I can’t believe our pilot episode premiered TODAY and that I can finally announce the news... fear of judgement subsists. Can perspective, positivity and living an imperfect life as openly as possible actually be of benefit? The verdict is still out... but I’m excited to try. I’m excited to see. And I’m excited to get started.▪️Click Link In Bio To Watch The Pilot Or Go To:▪️#CatchingBreaths

spaced brain.

My brain spaced and I forgot to add in key points about Thursday’s class in my last post. But, oh well. They’re in the journal. That’s what matters, right?

Remember that Autoimmune Paleo diet? Yeah, it ended up getting the better of me. I wound up really sick on Saturday night/Sunday morning and was debating going to the ER. Thankfully, I somehow managed to fall back asleep and woke up without the crippling nausea (I can’t throw up–long story–so it makes me a little scared when it gets like that.) I was really weak and had dropped 7 pounds in four days, and 4 of those pounds were over night somehow. Really scary stuff.

I still went to Nutcracker Rehearsals, and just told my teacher about it before hand so she was aware if I had to hold back any. She said I could wear my flat shoes if I wanted, so I did. I was so grateful that she was so understanding about it. I didn’t want to look weak or unable to keep up. I don’t want to be, like, a liability or whatever, and I didn’t want her to be upset that I had never told her about this before if I’ve been dealing with it for so long. But it wasn’t like that at all, and sometimes the movement of activity somehow helps? I don’t know.

Good news is, I didn’t pass out. I was able to make it through the rehearsal and be okay and today I’m feeling loads better, so I’m hopeful. I know my part is quite minimal compared to the other members, but still. Doing that much when you feel like crap is probably more than I should have done. Oh well.

This week is our Auditorium Rehearsal week! Because, ya know, we have two school performances on Friday, and then our first weekend on Saturday and Sunday! I’m excited and nervous, and will probably feel a lot better after a few full run-throughs. This is my first show ever. I mean, I’ve done recitals and I’ve done plays, but those are different. Our finale is ROUGH but we kinda weren’t properly shown what to do and can’t seem to get the timing right… I’m really hoping everything comes together. Chinese seems to get a bad rap, and I want to do the best I can to change that.

Also, my friend was called out during corrections after rehearsal for giving it her all during Roses, going full out, then telling Ms. Munro she has two bruised toenails that are falling off… Ms. Munro was impressed. hehehe
