My adductor sprain has been refusing to heal properly, prooooobably because I've been refusing to let it heal properly. It only complained a little bit throughout the recital, but it rebelled after yesterdays jazz class. After several minutes crying in the bathroom because everything is horribly unfair and I will obviously never, ever dance again … Continue reading Annoying Adductors
Some of you may remember that I have been struggling with a painful and annoying plantar wart for a couple of months now. I've been going to my family physician every two weeks to have the damn thing iced.

But hey, we've got a little more than a month to improve! *gulp* Besides the steps, we've been … Continue reading Seventh Rehearsal: Keep Your Head On
Easter break was a quietly lazy time for me. There are periods when I'm very motivated to do things such as write the blog, work, redecorate my house, draw or pursue some other project. My mind just goes, «Let's do all the things!» This is not one of those times. The last few weeks, my … Continue reading Just Give Up (But Only a Little)
