Share Your World: July 24, 2017

Better late than never! This will be a weekly post of the most random of random questions to answer- to share my world! Thanks to Cee’s blog for being the brainchild behind this! List some of your favorites types of teas. As your typical northeastern American, the only tea I grew up drinking was nonsweetened, decaffeinated iced tea. To me it tasted like swamp water. Then, when I was in high school, as a frantic remedy to losing my voice…

The Objectification of the Dancer

The Objectification of the Dancer

As we enter into the thick of dance recital season, this topic popped into my mind. Little kids are cute onstage, but it doesn’t take long for them to grow up into a world where they are objectified for their looks. I grew up dancing. I started dance lessons at the age of three, and from then on, you couldn’t keep me off the stage if you tried. I was a darn cute little thing in my little tutus. But…

Nocturnal Musings #18: A New Me?

Nocturnal Musings #18: A New Me?

I haven’t done one of these in awhile. My last one was in December, I believe. Even in two short months, my life has changed a great deal. Not for the better, unfortunately. And since I’m having some painsomnia along with my general refusal to sleep at night for the most part anymore, I guess I may as well talk about it to some more sympathetic ears than I’ve been getting the past few days. I lost my job last…

Share Your World- January 30, 2017

This will be a weekly post of the most random of random questions to answer- to share my world! Thanks to Cee’s blog for being the brainchild behind this! What is the most incredible natural venue that you’ve ever seen in person? The Grand Canyon. I traveled there with family in 2013. We hiked all the way to the bottom and stayed at Phantom Ranch.

Ask and I Shall Tell…

Ask and I Shall Tell…

Well, I didn’t quite get the response I was looking for, but I did get some questions to answer, and they’re all interesting, so here goes! This has been a helpful distraction from my depression and anxiety, too.🙂 What is your favorite book? A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith When did you know David was the one for you? Well, we started dating in March 2006, during our P2 year. Sometime near the end of the school year, we were walking…

The Graceful One

The Graceful One

via Daily Prompt: Graceful I don’t usually participate in the daily prompts, but this one I couldn’t pass up. This will simply be me reminiscing about my former life, and maybe what could have been had certain events not taken place. I grew up dancing. From the age of three to the age of twenty, I was a dancer. From the age of eleven to the age of eighteen, I was involved in musical theater as well, which was the…

I’m Not Shy

I’m Not Shy

Mental health disorders in children aren’t something that are talked about a great deal. Probably because we don’t like to think that our innocent children can have a disorder that can lead to, among other things, the stigma that they’re “crazy” or result in the ultimate of tragedies, suicide. But this post isn’t about suicide awareness or childhood depression. It’s about a struggle of mine that started when I was a child and continues to this day: social anxiety disorder.

#1daywithoutpain

#1daywithoutpain

This is something that’s going around among the chronic pain community. What would you do with one day without pain? Assuming I can also on this day throw my celiac disease in the trash, I would first eat a Bruegger’s plain bagel with cream cheese. This used to be a staple in my diet, especially as a quick dinner inbetween dance classes or in the middle of show choir rehearsals.

Dear Little 💛ribbonrx, This is you, from the future. I know that seems kind of strange, but I wanted to give you this special opportunity, brought to you by an alien known as The Doctor (see that Blue Police Box in the backyard?) to let you know that everything is going to be ok and to tell you about something really important.
