I tend to go a bit overboard on pretty much anything I enjoy. This explains why I have four dance classes and two gym sessions a week. Last year, missing a class would've caused me acute bad conscience. I'd drag myself to class when injured «to see how it goes» and feel terrible if the … Continue reading Chilling Out
Extremely kind people have nominated me for two blogging awards! I have never expected to be nominated for anything at all and am, in fact, still suprised that people read my blog at all. Both awards aim to promote lesser-known blogs. While it is theoretically possible to actually win those awards, this doesn't seem to … Continue reading It’s Raining Nominations, Oh My!

To look back on all that has happened, I've made a bullshit infographic with Venngage, only to have Venngage and WordPress conspire against … Continue reading Two-Year Dance Anniversary!
I caved in and opened a dancy Instagram account. I have always dearly loved Instagram... and then forgotten about it for another year the second I closed the app. I promise this will not happen anymore. So who's on Instagram that I haven't followed yet? Say the word and I will follow you! (Phantom of … Continue reading Instagram Anyone?
