I apologize for my recent absence, and I’m here to tell you I’m about to disappear again. Nutcracker is over now, but we have plunged head-first into dance finals. I have taken half my pointe final (the other half is today), my pas final (the week before break, actually), and my modern final (yesterday). I have the rest of pointe and ballet technique still to go.
What else do I have to do? The quality of this post will be rather poor, I’m afraid, and the rest will consist of a list of the finals a dance major might be expected to finish. You have been warned.
After I finish dance finals, academic finals begin. I have written exams in dance history and analytic physics. I have to present my long Irish paper tonight, and the final draft is due next Tuesday. I also have to present a dance I choreographed with two other junior dance majors next week for my Choreography I class’ final.
And at some point, I really need to do my laundry. Cooking is generally a good idea as well. A very long time ago, I made this magnificent frittata. Today all I have is barley vegetable soup. Good, but it’s not going to last.
