Personal Update: Poi-gnantly Affirmative

Posted by +Bellydancingbarbie on December 21st, 2009

Just thinking.. in someways I can’t believe how quickly this year has gone in and this last 8 weeks in particular.. woah! When I think about all of the people I’ve danced with, performed for and taught, all the studying I’ve done, the social events and family things, I wonder how I’ve managed to pack it all in, oh yes, that’s right, because I’m like a little MACHINE of fabulousness!

This has been a tremendous year for my own personal learning. Only 6 months of college left! I’m really looking forward to having a little more time for really getting my teeth into Bellydance things, attending more Haflas, designing more costumes etc, more, more, more. I want to build on my creative talents even more and return to talents I already have but haven’t indulged in for a while. To give you an idea, one of the things on my list is to learn fire poi dancing, I will teach myself and I’m giving myself until Guy Fawkes Night 2012 when I plan to perform FIRE POI for my friends and family, perhaps you can come watch! My list is long and bouncy with variety, I’ll keep you posted on my progress!  Of course, me being me, I’ll continue to study in some shape or form, it’s quite addictive this personal development/self growth thang huh? and extremely rewarding! Why should we stop building our identity in our teens and not continue experimenting into our adult years? Full steam ahead, that’s what I say! Jump in, the waters warm! Shake what your mamma gave you!

I’m looking forward to the adventures of 2010. That was an understatement!! Sometimes I’m so excited about life and whats ahead I feel my heart might burst out of my chest and cause a big red scene 

Basically, I’m in my groove and I’m in my element!

A lovely end to this term for me was leaving class with a smiley, cosy and contented feeling inside and wheeling my pink case behind me through the snow. Looking back at the tracks I remembered pulling my sledge along as a kid and I realised I’ve grown up, but not really!

…oh remind me to introduce you to my mascot, gosh now even my thoughts are dancing!
