Hi guys! Some of you may have noticed that I haven't blogged in almost a month. This is down to a few reasons, but mainly going back to college so having a bit of work to do and MY CAMERA'S BROKEN! I'm devastated to say the least. For the past four years, I have taken it everywhere with me and documented everything, and now that it's gone I feel like I've lost a limb haha. It broke a few days before me my birthday, when I had numerous days out and blog posts planned so just my luck really. It's even more annoying because if it had broken sooner, I could have asked for one for my birthday. I'm struggling without it so I am considering dipping into my university/New York funds as I'm not sure I can wait until Christmas! All photos in this post were taken on a mobile, so I apologise for the poor quality. Trust me, none of you will find it anywhere near as annoying as I do haha! On a more serious note, before my camera broke I was actually getting into blogging and getting a fair amount of views (a fair amount for someone who'd only been blogging for a month anyway) so when I could no longer upload, those views obviously dwindled. Hopefully they'll go back up again as I continue to blog, as I'm enjoying this much more than I thought I would. Anyway, as it's my first post in a while, I thought I'd do a quick catch-up of a few things I've been up to recently. :)
First up was the annual dance festival. For me, this normally includes six dances meaning six costume changes in very short periods of time and a lot of stress! This year was much more relaxed though and I actually got to sit down and enjoy it for one. At the end of May, I managed to break my left elbow, two bones in my left wrist and pull my shoulder ligaments so I missed a lot of dance, and with my arm still not being back to normal, I only danced once this year. I was a bit upset about it all considering the work we'd put in all year, but it was lovely to be able to watch from the crowd and cheer everyone on. Even though I was only dancing once, this still meant ridiculous amounts of practices, dress rehearsals and costume fittings. We had to cut up our own tops, and I asked one of my best friend's Alba to do mine. As much as I trust her, I was slightly worried that she was going to stab me with the scissors!
This all went by ridiculously fast, so before we knew it, it was time for the actual dance show. I've been dancing for about four years now. Our dance teacher who is much more like a friend to us now is amazing. She's hard on us when she needs to be, but makes all classes extremely fun. She's incredibly popular in town and teachers class for any age group. I think the youngest group are about three, and the oldest eighty, which is amazing to watch. I've included some pictures from this years show, as well as some from previous years.
