STRESS!!!!!!

Ugh!! I am so stressed right now. Between the all region choir auditions, the SAT and just plain old school, I have a lot to do right now. I also have volleyball, dance, DI and I have to get up at 5:30 to go to basketball which starts a hour before school.

I have choir auditions this Saturday and the SAT is on the same day. So I have to finish the SAT and then I have to go to the audition really quickly so that I actually will be able to audition. I have to prepare for both of those so I will do good and not fail. So I have to take a SAT practice test when I can and I also have to practice all of my choir pieces.

Another source of stress is my Friday. I have DI right after school and then right after DI I have to come home and get ready for dance. As a result I am always late for dance class (and my teacher isn’t too happy about that) and I have to leave DI early (which I hate doing), but Di will be over in March which is sad and happy because, no more DI 🙁 , but less stress 🙂 !

I hope that I won’t be this stressed next year and that summer will come faster, so I can just laze around, eat and watch netflix each day…

Dance Recital

I have a dance recital coming up. I do Bharatanatyam, a style of Indian classical dance, I dance at DIVYATHRAYAM school of dance.The recital is on Sunday, November 2, 2014, and I am doing 4 items(dances). I know that doesn’t sound like much it is a lot in this style of dance.

The thing about preforming Bharatanatyam is the makeup, it is ANNOYING! There is literally like 3 pounds of makeup on your face(like 1 pound of that is foundation) it is the most annoying thing. 2nd place goes to the jewelry(that’s right, we where jewelry while dancing) and hair. The jewelry is like 5 pounds (that’s 8 pounds of stuff now) and it’s all pulling back on your head (so your head feels like it will fall off). The hair is either a bun or a braid(usually, it may change), the bun is just very uncomfortable, but the braid is annoying because you have to add fake hair to your regular hair(if you don’t have hair that long already) so you feel the weight of your hair double and that is pulling on your head another 1 pound(9 pounds). The least annoying thing is the costume, it’s the biggest thing but it is the least annoying. It just depends on what you get it stitched out of, but the usual things that go wrong is that it is getting small(or big), it is itchy ect.

But all in all I love dance and preforming is really a small part of it, my favorite thing is learning about new stories and getting to share them out to other people, I also feel very in touch with my heritage when I am dancing.
