we like archaic kinds of fun

archaic

Hello, everyone, it’s Bethany. Been a while, hasn’t it?

Me and the girls haven’t been on the blog too much lately, I know. Sorry about that. I just wanted to get on here and give some updates on what we’ve been doing this winter. It’s been quite eventful for us, and I’m really excited to see how the rest of 2014 plays out.

Maddie started college this term. Hopefully she’ll be on here within the next couple of weeks to talk about that. She’s decided she wants to study to become an engineer, which I think is very fitting for her. She has started going to TNCC to study all her necessary intro college classes and, this is my opinion, I think she’s enjoying it. For the longest time she had no idea what, exactly she wanted to do with her life, so I’m glad that she’s found something to study.

Krysta is working as per usual. She’s the only one out of the three of us who has a steady job, go figure. We see each other more now that the new year has started; which is great considering we’re both so busy.

As for me? Dancing, dancing, dancing. My time is split somewhat equally between ballet, theatre, schoolwork, and writing. My music is becoming more important to me now as well. All my energy is geared towards finishing high school and muting the stress with my outlets. To be honest I think chaos is the nicest way to occupy oneself.

So that’s what we’ve been up to lately, I hope you’ve all had amazing winter breaks.

new year, no fear

?????????????????

Winter break is officially over for me. I arrived back at my ballet studio two days ago, and I’m proud to admit that even after a month of vacation, I have not fallen out of shape in the slightest. That didn’t stop my calves from complaining, though.

This is my first year in company, and this season we’re putting on “The Carnival of the Animals” ballet as composed by Saint-Saens. The little composer in me is still fangirling over the music; there’s nothing like an instrumental. I’m in the aquarium dance, which happens to be my favorite movement in the piece. It sounds so otherworldly. On Monday the dancers worked on a couple of combinations and phrases set to the music, and I’m excited to see what our instructor has planned.

So far, the new year has been going well for me. I can’t complain. I get to wake up every morning and, schoolwork aside, do what I love, whether it’s writing, dancing, or composing music myself. I’m excited to see where 2014 will take me.

Oh, pointe shoes. How I have missed you.
