Sunday Stealing: The High School Questions

Sunday Stealing: The High School Questions

Another post this week from Sunday Stealing because I had so much fun with last week’s! And I figured since my last day of high school was actually 13 years ago yesterday, this would be a fitting topic to have fun with. So without further ado… Sunday Stealing: The High School Questions 1. Did you date someone from your school? Yes. 2. Did you marry someone from your high school? No. 3. Did you car pool to school? Yes. I was not a morning…

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…

Maybe This Time…

Maybe This Time…

There are many days on the calendar that are a challenge for infertile women. Christmas for sure, when all you want is to see the new little stocking hanging with the others for the first time. Halloween is despised, as you throw up your hands at seeing one more infant in a cuddly, warm lion costume. (Last year I sat in the bedroom with earphones on while my husband passed out the candy.) But there is no holiday out there…

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…

The I Dare You Tag

The I Dare You Tag

I found this fun-looking and thought-provoking tag over at bluchickenninja (you should totally check out her blog) and decided to tag myself! Anything to distract me from the daily grind of my myriad of chronic illnesses. 1. Which book has been on your shelves the longest? Audition by Michael Shurtleff. It was gifted to me by my high school musical theater director when I graduated in 2004. She was devastated that I decided not to go into theater, but gave me…

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.
