The Parakeet Post #11

Skating into Finals

I had such a great time ice-skating today with my bestie! It is such an accomplishment to be able to say that neither of us fell, but I have to admit that I came pretty close a few times. This afternoon allowed me to release some of the stress that has been overwhelming me and just have fun before finals week. In just a few days, this semester will be over, and the college will be closed until after the new year.

We just have to get through this long week of exams first… Here we go!

One More Week…

I see the elaborate tutus hung on the racks and admire the glittering tiaras set in careful stacks. The props in the basket are so very sweet. This show will definitely be a treat!

It is hard to believe that opening night for “The Nutcracker” is exactly one week from today, but I am looking forward to performing in the very first show of the 2018-19 season. I am so humbled to have been cast as the snow queen because it is one of my favorite roles in the entire ballet. As much as I love it, the snow pas de deux is has been very challenging physically and mentally as I try to get as close to perfection as possible. I want to leave the audience in awe this holiday season and perform to the best of my ability. I have one more week. Wish me luck!

The “Simple” Things

Even when things aren’t going our way and it feels like nothing is working out, there is still so much to be thankful for. Last week, I was reading the blog of a mother who’s son lost his leg in the battle against cancer. It broke my heart to read their story, but it made me remember how incredibly lucky I am to just stand here and breathe another day. I also read the post of another blogger who recently got hearing aides and is finally discovering this sound-filled world for the first time. The fact is, we take so many things for granted every single day, and many blessings (like the ability to walk and hear) are frequently overlooked.

Never forget the “simple” things, and always remember that our problems are very minimal in someone else’s eyes. Stop spending so much time complaining about life, and begin to see how beautiful it truly is… especially this week of Thanksgiving.

A Day In My Life

octoberphotoshoot

Hey everyone! Today, I thought it would be fun to share “A Day In My Life” and allow you to have a small peak into my routine throughout the week. I wanted to try something new and a little different on Maysa Rose, so I hope that you like this post!

7:00 AM: I finally decide to roll out of bed after pressing the SNOOZE button on my alarm at least twice.

8:00 AM: I load my backpack, lunch, dance bag, and purse into the trunk of my car and head to school.

8:40 AM- 1:15 PM: I arrive at school and bounce from class to class listening to lectures. My favorite time of day… (not really)

1:20 PM: I begin my 30 minute commute to the dance studio.

1:50ish PM: I finally reach the studio, do my hair, get changed, and cram food in my mouth before I head to class.

2:15- 5:30 (occasionally 6:30 PM): Ballet class and rehearsals

6:00 (occasionally 7:00 PM): I get home, eat dinner, shower, do laundry, and prepare for the next day.

8:00 PM- 12:30 AM (typically but varies): Homework and study

There you have it; this is the average day in the life of me! Let me know in the comments if you enjoyed this or if there are any posts that YOU would like to see… Have a great Wednesday! 🙂

Catch Up & Tag

grandmasgarden

These past few weeks have sent my brain swirling in many different directions, but none were even slightly related to blogging. I have been trying to get ready for school to begin, spend time with out-of-state family, brainstorm for a novel that I might consider writing soon, and study for my drivers license. Did I mention reading the Harry Potter series until my eyes hurt? In the end, I just want to recognize the fact that I have been so distant and apologize for my lack of support. I love blogging, and I absolutely love reading all of your posts. I haven’t forgotten about you, and I will definitely try to be better in the weeks ahead.
