Let the dancing begin!

Eight days… I haven’t posted in EIGHT DAYS. 😮 I am so sorry that I have neglected this little blog of mine for over a week. You were all probably thinking that something was wrong, because I am rarely ever silent!

Since my last post, the 2017-18 dance season has begun!!!!!!!! It has been a great first two days back to the normal routine, and it felt so good to dance a full days again. Aside from dance, school has been going great so far, and I really like my teachers this year. For the newbies here on Maysa Rose, it may be helpful to know that I am a professional trainee ballerina in a daytime academy at my studio. To allow my schedule to be more flexible, I am home schooled at an online public cyber academy. In a very short amount of time, you will soon see how insane my schedule will get, but I will keep you POSTED. I am so excited for the performances/events, and I can’t wait for the action and excitement to start!

I am ready to put in some serious work this year, and I hope to see lots of improvement by the end of this season. Let the dancing begin!! 🙂

New Season 17-18

~Bob Marley

Believe it or not, the 2017-18 season is about to begin in only 7 days!!!

I am looking forward to taking you all with me through another action packed year. I am actually very pleased to welcome 43 new followers who have become a part of Maysa Rose this summer!! I want to thank EVERYONE for all of your support that you continue to provide me each and everyday. It means so much to have this many people following me and believing in my ability to succeed.

I have a feeling that it is going to be a great year. 🙂

Through The Eyes

In continuation of my previous post:

As promised, here is the poem that I have submitted to the America Library of Poetry Contest!! 🙂

Through The Eyes

Through the eyes of a dancer,

the movements unfold,

telling you stories that have never been told…

 

Through the eyes of a writer,

you read deep into the soul,

feeling the pages of secrets slowly unroll.

 

Through the eyes of a ballerina,

you experience the truth

about all of the days of work that we spend of our youth

 

Through the eyes of an artist,

the vibrant canvas unwinds

as all of the shapes and colors combine…

 

When you look into the eyes of me,

tell me… What do YOU see?

For, this is all that I am and ever hope to be…

What do you think???? Do you have any ideas that would have made this even better? I would love to hear your input in the comments section.

Poetry Contest UPDATE!!!!

I have some wonderful news!!!!!!!!!!!!

*As you may already know, I submitted a poem to the America Library of Poetry a few months ago… I truly wasn’t expecting much, because I was competing against 50 ENTIRE STATES OF COMPETITORS. Out of the thousands of poems written, they notified me that they want to publish my poem in a book called, Treasured!! They said, ‘less that 20% of the authors we read will have the honor of seeing their work in print.’ I am absolutely elated to have been chosen for this, and I am looking forward to the placement results on September 30th… I am hoping that I make it in at least top 20. I love poetry so much, so I am getting very anxious for the results…. I will keep you all updated, and I will post my poem for you all to read in a few days! 🙂

Brace Yourselves…

-because I got braces this morning!!!

braces

This morning I reluctantly headed over to the orthodontist to get these little brackets and wires put on my teeth. It actually wasn’t as bad as I had expected, and it doesn’t hurt too bad YET. 🙂 After four teeth extractions, it is kind of a relief to finally be at this stage where all I have to do is wait. It is definitely going to be something to get use to, but how do you like my new “look”?

New Birds!!!!!

kiwi&olive

Welcome home Kiwi and Olive!!!!

I am so thankful that I was finally able to adopt you… I can’t even begin to explain how happy I am to finally bring you two precious angels home. I have owned parakeets since I was just a little girl, so this past year has been very lonely for me. I need to let you know that I went through so much to get you here, and it was not an easy roller coaster ride of convincing! I promise that my sister and I will take VERY good care of you, and we are looking forward to the time that we will spend together.

It is going to be a great new school year now that I have someone to study with again, and I can’t wait to experience Sophomore year with you guys… I love you Kiwi and Olive. Welcome to your new home!

Blogger Recognition Award!

bow

I am sending a big thank you to Didi/ Didis Art Design for nominating me for this award!!

Didi is such an incredible artist, writer, and supporter from https://didisvgp.wordpress.com/ If you have not visited my wonderful follower’s blog, please stop reading now and head right over!

The Rule Book:

1. Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
2. Write a post to show your award.
3. Give a brief story of how your blog started.
4. Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers.
5. Select 15 other bloggers for this award.
6. Comment on each blog to let them know you’ve nominated them and a link to the post you created.

*Unfortunately, I do not remember why I FIRST started blogging… 😦

*The best advice that I can give to new bloggers is to just always be aware of the publicity of your blog and always be very cautious about what you post; you never know who may be on the other side of the screen… This isn’t to discourage you, but it is important to always keep this in mind! Lastly, don’t become overly obsessed with the number of followers and likes that you receive. It is true that you will go through a constant cycle of followers, and you may not get a lot of likes on some posts. However, you are initially blogging for YOU! Don’t let the number of likes that you receive dictate what you post about! Enjoy blogging and post about what you want to, whether it is interesting or not! 🙂 Remember to HAVE FUN!!
