Ooh I like this question. Hm, it appeals to me in every single way! It has history, which is French, and I love anything French! It’s traditional, classic, proper, classy. It tells a story. It can be contemporary and abstract. It can be frightening or it can make you laugh, whatever it does it is always done with passion and complete PRECISION. I love that the most, how precise it is. I love how it sculpts and strengthens your body whilst making it supple also. I love how you leap and glide across the stage. I love how it pushes your body so much. I love the music ballet is performed to. I love how utterly beautiful, feminine and graceful women look doing it. I love how disciplined it makes you. I love the culture surrounding it. I LOVE IT ALL!
“Godin, who was seldom right in his own judgement of American habitus, had warned me that the institution might turn out to be one of those where girls are taught, as he put it with a foreigner’s love for such things: “not to spell very well but to smell very well.” I don’t think they achieved even that.”—Humbert Humbert in Nabokov’s Lolita
Feeling fab, like really, really fab. Speckled with little, sad and sporadic freckles. But I’m good.
As usual I’m feeling really excited about the years to come. I can see it all there.
I’m enjoying school. I’m looking forward to uni. I’m looking forward to working. I’m looking forward to the HSC (…wot?).
I feel like I can’t learn enough. I can’t put books down for a considerable amount of time. I can’t stop feeling really passionate about everything around me, whether it’s love or abhorrence.
I feel like I’ve spent the last couple of years being a good listener and I’m ready to be a talker. I think I’ve gotten more shy over the years, which I don’t really like, but it’s possibly a good thing. Maybe it’s not shy, it’s being reserved. Idk but it’s different to what I was a couple of years ago.
My grandma died last night and I questioned my atheistic beliefs.
