This past month has been a balance of dancing, writing, cleaning and cooking. And I think I’m okay with that.
After taking a week off of dancing because of my blood blister, I finally went back to class and took Kat Worthington‘s class at the Alonzo King LINES Dance Center. It was rocky coming back from not dancing for just a week. But I got through it and have been able to get to Shawl-Anderson twice this week. In both classes, the teachers begged the students to go take from them at LINES so that they would have more room to dance. But I have to say, if I don’t feel like waking up at 6 in the morning, Shawl-Anderson makes it pretty easy to do just that with their evening class offerings. But I did buy a class pass to ODC and I need to make my way back there. Next week, next week.
I’ve been hacking away at my Thesis slowly but surely. I’m going through a stack of books (mainly about modernity) and have all the quotes from my sources organized through Google Docs. It took me a week and a half to get through one pretty frustrating source. But I finally broke through yesterday and I’m onto my next source. I really hope it goes faster so I can get to some actual writing…
I’ve had more time on my hands than I sometimes know what to do with. Or maybe I’m just epically procrastinating on my Thesis…but I’ve been cleaning my room like a crazy person. First my desk, then my bed, then my toiletries, and my whole room eventually. Yesterday I started vacuuming my room. Who. Am. I? But I really do like my new bedding. I wanted something lighter with my bedding because it’s been getting pretty hot and there’s no AC in my apartment.
I’ve also been cooking more, which has been pretty relaxing. I’ve made biscuits and tuna casserole thus far and I plan to make scones, tilapia, and stuffed sweet potatoes. Oh yeah…I need to buy some cheese. That somehow didn’t make it in my basket. But it’s been a good way to save money while not feeling deprived.
