Last few hours

prayers

As I savor these last few hours left of Spring Break, I recall:

how much chocolate that I have consumed in such a small time frame…

the 30 hours I spent in a Drivers Education classroom…

camping with my family over the weekend on the waterside…

and remembering how fast it has gone…

What a week!

I missed it!

flowers

“The spring came suddenly, bursting upon the world as a child bursts into a room, with a laugh and a shout and hands full of flowers.”

~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I realize that the first day of Spring was yesterday, but it is never too late to share the adoration and happiness of this beautiful time of year. As the flowers transform the world into an array of color, never walk past a single petal without recognizing how fortunate you are to witness such a magnificent gift from God.

Wishing you all a beautiful Spring. 🙂

Vision & College

long day

With lots of twists and turns (literally), this past week was definitely an adventure. From taking my college dual enrollment exam to setting my very own choreography on a group of outstanding dancers, it definitely put me through a lot of stress.

Despite of all it all, I am absolutely elated to know that the hours of late-night studying/ preparing actually paid off, and I have exceeded the standards on my college entry exam. I am really looking forward to starting this upcoming school year as a dual enrollment student at the college, and it is going to be an awesome experience to take on-campus classes (working around my studio schedule).

Nonetheless, I also learned that choreography is much harder than it may appear to the eyes of the audience. A dance takes a lot of work to create, and there are many moving parts to keep track of at one time. I am so thankful to have been given the opportunity to work with such talented peers, and I appreciate their patience and ‘flexibility’ tremendously. It truly is amazing to see a vision actually come alive. I am very pleased with the result of this piece, and I think that it will definitely be something that the audience will remember…

Wishing you all the best!

In late December, I did a photo shoot with the incredible photographer, Richard Jean- Louis. It was such a fun experience, and I am glad that I am able to share more of this shoot with all of you. If you like this, be sure to check out my previous post Standards.

The Greatest Showman

Phenomenal… Outstanding… Touching…

My new favorite movie.

I had been wanting to see this for awhile, so I was so excited when my friend invited me to go see this with her a few days ago. The Greatest Showman was very well done, and I think it is one of the best movies that I have seen in a long time. Aside from the film, the soundtrack is amazing, and the songs have such great meaning. I will definitely be watching this again, and I highly encourage you to experience this yourself!

Have you seen this already? What are YOUR thoughts?
