UIUC AAA Fashion Show

It’s been a few days since the AAA Fashion show ruined my life. My life has been somewhat in a disarray.

I bought $263.99 worth of merchandise for the show with the intention of returning it. Then my credit card information was stolen and my account shut down. During the week leading up to Fashion Show, I was basically either in practice or asleep. I uncharacteristically spent a great deal of money on going out to eat, clothes, and liquor, and it’s biting me in the ass.

School has suffered, but that’s always the first casualty.

I learned a lot, though. I learned that people coming together for something is almost, by itself, a worthy cause. I learned that I am not alone in my independence. I learned that meeting new people is something I still enjoy. I learned that I learn very, very fast.

But not fast enough. In terms of dance, I learn quickly, but there are glaring mistakes. I don’t get the timing correct. I can’t learn as quickly as I needed to. There are things I could have done to improve my learning speed that I didn’t have the time, energy, or motivation to do, like running choreographies in my head.

Again, I got myself into something way over my head unintentionally. Twelve choreographies in a month was too big of a task. I guess that is my lot in life – to try and fail. But then, we fail until we succeed, and then we pick something else to fail at, yeah? I just haven’t stuck at anything long enough to succeed…

Ah well. Applying for Head Coord for next year. Updates to come!
