Well, except to wash them, of course. (This post was (almost) written a good long while ago but never published. All the points are still just as valid though.) I now take both ballet and modern in my leotards/tights/shorts. I usually wear knee-length sweatpants over the tights/leotard combo in modern and an incredibly useful piece … Continue reading Ballet Clothes Are Awesome And I’m Never Taking Them Off Again
To my great shame, I must admit that I still haven't finished two of the anatomy books I bought around the time I started this blog.

I have now officially resumed all my classes except stretching and nothing very exciting happened. I haven't forgotten anything, I didn't lose all my conditioning – or any, of course, since all I missed was a week of classes. In some ways, I came back better than I left. One thing that makes me satisfied … Continue reading Fixing Things
