Thank goodness my dog is deaf
My first pair was Bloch Amelie. SUCKED for me. Could not get over. Vamp was too long. My foot is super compressible and when they broke in, they were too wide.
Second pair was the Wear Moi LA Pointe. I LOVED them. They were super tight and I got over, and they were a 3/4 shank. I totally murdered them at recital.
My boss had me try the Mirella Advanced Pointe, but because of how my feet are shaped, the crown was too tall, and my arch was crap.
I tried a Free C-Maker shoe. It was pretty nice.
Then my teacher had me pull a Grishko 2007 shoe. I was more worried about size, and didn’t realize I pulled a medium shank (the middle of 3 shank strengths). I was over on the shoes, and had a nice arch going. We’re thinking my next should should be the 2007! I’d still get the softest of the shanks, but still. I don’t have to custom order some ridiculous style or maker or anything.
I know I have strong feet. I just don’t have the flexibility that most dancers do. To be able to get the 2007 to arch well and get over on the platforms without having the crown be too high or the shoe be too wide is amazing. I don’t even need the most narrow width in the shoe! That’s also a first. So excited for the fall.
the hitchhiker’s guide to the galaxy needs a huge fucking fandom i mean how awesome would that fandom be like we would call each other hoopy froods and carry towels everywhere and drink tea all the time and jump off cliffs trying to fly and none of us would ever get the hang of thursdays
don’t pretend you don’t get these references
because i know you do
oh god YES PLEASE
On September 31st, 2013, Tumblr will start charging you for your account. To avoid this, you MUST get NAKED, stand on your dining room table, and do the macarena, all while singing, “I Will Survive”. After sending the video tape of the previous actions to me, then and only then will David Karp come down your chimney to tell you that your account will stay free. Pass it on, it must be true because someone on the internet I hardly know told me.
one day im going to be too lazy to breathe and just die
And I can’t get back into the conversation because they just keep going and going.
And now mom’s singing. -_-
It’s so awesome!!!!!!!
I think my mom is enjoying this movie a little too much.
Well, the cleaning scene that’s modeled after Fantasia at least.
If you had asked me where I see myself in the future just a few years ago, I would have said I want to be married and have a few kids. Not even a few years ago, a few months. I’ve always been a late bloomer, and to this day, I’m still learning who I am and who I want to be.
If you were to ask me where I want to be right now, I’d say “I don’t know” as a short story. If you wanted detail: I probably don’t want to get married as soon as possible. I want to live with somebody, maybe have a kid or two, and a lot of dogs. I know I want to live on the edge of a city so that I can have a small bit of land to start a elderly dog sanctuary. That dream hasn’t changed. But I don’t have to get married like society taught me. Like my parents taught me. Look how they ended up. If, after a few years I decide I do want to make it official, have a ring on my finger to show everyone I’m loved and that I love who I’m with, then I’ll go for it. I just want to have a stable life that’s filled with laughter.
Maybe that’s why I have a hard time, too. I’ve always looked for someone that I “can see myself with for the rest of my life.” I don’t need to look for that. I can be on my own. Crouton was partly a result of that old dream where I felt I needed to get married to make society happy.
Fuck society. I’ve always been one to break tradition, why not do it again? I questioned the religion that I was taught, I questioned the schooling that I was given, I questioned the morals and politics of my family, I question my government. Why haven’t I questioned something like this?
No, I don’t want to end up alone entirely; I just don’t see the need to get married, anymore. I’m finally starting to feel mature and fit into my own skin, and I don’t need somebody to cling to me. I don’t need people to reinforce the beauty that I have. I’m learning I am beautiful in my own way, and once again: society can suck my female dick. Even if I don’t have a “significant other,” I can still adopt and be happy and teach that kid what I know and what I’ve learned through my years, here.
I also don’t need to be married to have sex. I lost my virginity a year and a half ago, and yeah- I do still sometimes regret it, but I haven’t died from not waiting til marriage. I know society wants us to be safe, not have unwanted pregnancies, or get STDs, but I know that marriage isn’t the only way to keep myself protected from that. I also know that far too many marriages happen because of stupidity like that. I’m not going to be one of them.
It’s been a while since I’ve truly been alone, but I’ll be fine. I won’t slowly lose my sanity because I haven’t found someone to be with. I won’t lose sleep over relationships at night. I won’t go insane. I won’t dive into a depression.
Besides, I’m only 21. I have a life ahead of me so that I can be stupid. If I’m tied down to someone at such a young age, I think that will do a lot of damage later in life.
Why can’t magic be real. Make my puppy live FOREVER! =D
