I haven't been posting as often as I'd like to lately, but I've just been so busy with school!
Since we had so many snow days at the start of the semester, everyone (myself included) had a terrible work ethic. Now that it's the end of the year, it feels like everything has piled up.
Thankfully I have finalised studying abroad in China this summer and it is 100% happening. My plane tickets are booked, my classes signed up for, and the visa will hopefully be getting done soon.
I ended up leaving my job at the cosmetics counter because there were too many hours I couldn't make. It's hard to justify working when you've got a mountain of assignments to do. While I do think I will work next semester, I don't think I can take a job with so many hours. The experience was a good one and I wouldn't take it back for a minute.
I'm still doing silks! I might look slightly terrified in the video below of me doing my first ever "dive between" on silks, and that's because I was! Since I can't invert in the air very well, I had to climb up the silks upside-down. I then scared myself really badly looking down at the ground and thinking about how much it would hurt to fall on my head. Once I wrapped myself up in the silks I was fine... and the actual flip was pretty fun. Now that I've done it I can see myself doing it again, but at the time I swore it off forever.
