Summary: We had a bad day and enjoyed Merely’s.

*CAUTION: long rant-y emo post beyond this line 
DISCLAIMER: my views are those of my own experience. 

If there’s one person who has endured dance with me since we were 13, it’s this girl right here. She’s been next to me from the days when we would want to scream from pain when our instructor sat down on us to improve our splits, to happy days of performing, and now in the same uni.  After a while, pain is normal. Pain is necessary. Pain is celebrated. Pain is beauty. “Pain is weakness leaving the body.” In that 5 minutes you watch a performance, you don’t see the pain behind it. You see fancy moves and pretty girls and whatnot. You see a beautiful art form. You don’t see dancers who still practice with a forced smile despite bleeding feet, bruised knees and pure exhaustion. As long as you are not perfect, you don’t dare stop. I started dancing when I was 6, but now at the age of 19, I realize with horror that something I loved, turned into something I hate. “But you’re such a good dancer, why would you refuse such a great opportunity others would kill for?” I am not a good dancer. I love dancing, when it comes from my soul right up to my fingertips. But you have no idea what it means to wear the title of a “dancer”. It means never being weak. Never feeling pain. You live your life on stage and off stage forever on full-up, forever performing. Am I ready for all that again? 
I am so so thankful for this girl who understands my concerns and rants.

“I’ve been making a list of the things they don’t teach you at school. They don’t teach you how to love somebody. They don’t teach you how to be famous. They don’t teach you how to be rich or how to be poor. They don’t teach you how to walk away from someone you don’t love any longer. They don’t teach you how to know what’s going on in someone else’s mind. They don’t teach you what to say to someone who’s dying. They don’t teach you anything worth knowing.”
Neil Gaiman (via psych-facts)

It is now 3 weeks since Michael Brown was murdered by Ferguson PD Officer Darren Wilson. Officer Darren Wilson still has not been arrested, charged, or even brought to prison or court for the murder of Michael Brown.
