I’ve just finished studying for my Swedish test and right now I’m just chilling in the sofa watching series and writing down corrections from today’s ballet class and rehearsals.
I keep thinking I should delete my blog as I’ve literally no time whatsoever to post but I also keep getting (positive) comments and questions about it. There are actually people who read it on a daily basis and I kind of don’t want to let them down, if that makes sense. Also I really do like to write so I figured, why not just keep it and post whenever I feel like it? Sooo here we go;
What’s happened since I last wrote a blogpost? Well, for starters it’s a whole new year for those of you who haven’t realised ;). I’ve honestly been so busy these past weeks that I can’t even remember the days properly. The very first week wasn’t too intense, the teachers kept in mind that we had been off for quite awhile. Now, as the winter holidays are approaching we are definitely in the middle of everything: tests, homework, rehearsals, etc etc- all adding up to long days and loads of hard work. My body is absolutely dead by the end of the day.
The girls in my class and the guys from all of the gymnasium are currently working on a pas de deux choreographed by a former principal of the Royal ballet: Antony Dowson. I really like it and it’s so much fun to rehearse. He will later on choose four or maybe even six couples to perform this at our annual spring performances (coming up this June).
Also, I am so happy to finally be done with all my applications for summer schools. I’ll most likely be traveling a lot this summer (not only dance related) which I am really looking forward to!!
It is only 10 more days until I fly to Delhi and my family. I miss them so so so much and I honestly cannot wait to get to the sun and warmth- I’m sick of this depressing, grey & cold Sweden. I’ll be home for a little more than a week before going back to Stockholm. Then it’s actually only 3 weeks until I take off again, India it is. The day after I arrive me and the rest of the family will be traveling to the Maldives as that will be the end of their spring break. I am so excited for all of this and I feel extremely fortunate to be able to travel as much as I do/ will do.
I really need to start preparing another pair of pointe shoes so I guess I’ll end the blogpost here. I am very well aware that I keep telling you guys that my updates will get better but as you may have noticed, I am pretty bad a keeping my promises…
Wishing you all a good night/ morning, take care!! ❤️
