The Parakeet Post #8

hugs

Kiwi and Olive seem to have missed me while I was away, because I was showered with so many hugs and kisses when I returned. Fortunately, I managed to capture this adorable moment on camera (thanks, Olive). I am so, incredibly thankful for my friend who cared for them while I was gone. I am actually bird sitting her two beautiful birds right now as she attends her 5 week ballet intensive. Kiwi and Olive were absolutely thrilled to see their best friends again, and I am so happy to have these lively visitors in my care.

I know it is a day late, but Happy Summer/Winter Solstice!

I also forgot to announce that I have completely redone my blog. The layout has changed drastically on the computer version, and I am super pleased with this new look! What do you guys think? I hope that you enjoyed this post! 🙂

Road TWO Thanksgiving

river

I can’t believe that Thanksgiving is just TWO days away!

I am so thankful to spend all of this free time with my family and visit my grandparents for the week. It is so nice to step away from the everyday craziness and finally get rid of the sleep deprivation that had been haunting me for months. After three hours on the road, Thanksgiving is only TWO days away

We are on the road TWO thanksgiving, are you ready?

My Happy Place

I need to find my happy place,

where horses run and dolphins race.

Far away, through the sparkling rainbow beam,

external ideas are no longer what they seem.

I need to find my happy place,

where horses run and dolphins race.

Blocking out all realistic things,

and all that surrounds me are cotton candy filled dreams.

Unfortunately, I am headed to the dentist this morning to get FOUR teeth extracted so that I can receive braces in a week… It is never fun to get a tooth extracted, but it’s worse if you are getting four pulled in one day! I just have to keep my eye on the prize and think about how much better my teeth are going to look once this whole process is over.

Wish me luck today everyone!

Painting Pages

The floor is the canvas, and my feet are the paint

Creating an artwork that opens the gate

for a million stories that simply await.

We are almost finished with WEEK 3 of the intensive! I am shocked at how fast these past few weeks have gone, and I am so thankful to have learned as much as I have within this short amount of time. It is going to be great to go home soon and see my parents again, but it’s going to be hard to part with these INCREDIBLE instructors. They are so hands on and focus on a lot of important technical aspects that are so important. I am going to soak up as much as I possibly can as I go into this last week. 🙂 Happy Dancing!

Internet Issues…

7-6-5-4-THREE DAYS until I leave for my summer intensive program away from home! I will be dancing with outstanding teachers, incredible dancers, and unbelievable choreographers while improving my skills. I am so blessed to have been given this opportunity, and I am really looking forward sharing my experiences with you! Get ready for some serious dancing, Maysa Rose!
