|Seriously one of my favorite episodes of Futurama! Freedom Freedom Freedom OY!|
9 days until the O'shea Chaplin Christmas Feis. I'm still trying to wrap my brain around the fact that competing post transfer seemed so far away, and here we are, waiting with bated breath for the schedule to come out, I'm figuring out the minute details, trying to exude confidence but not looking super cheesy while I am dancing.
I also practiced like a beast this weekend. While I'm proud of where I am, I also made the somewhat foolish choice of running my set on the concrete garage floor instead of my little floor, because it's just not big enough for certain dances and not only was I nursing the sore hip from all those crazy leaps I tried at that champ class, but my shin splints came out of hiding.
DO NOT PANIC! I feel 100% fine now, even the hip feels better. I just haven't done any dancing since Sunday which worked out because Monday's class was cancelled because of a Christmas fair. I'm going to class tonight feeling well rested and confident, but I'm still not quite ready to do my scale of 1-10 thing. Maybe Sunday, maybe closer to the feis.
Have I mentioned that I am looking forward to the feis because I can't register for January or February competitions until I know if I'm doing all Novice or some dances are staying in advance beginner (I really hope not but we'll see!)
Final thing is that I may get my school dress before the feis! Once again crossing my fingers because I really don't like my back up costumes! But I'll do what I have to do.
Okay, tata for now. Maybe a photo challenge post soon? I really want to share what I'd like to do next! Eek!
