The only time that I don't want it to snow, it snows!! The company show and fun-filled, audition weekend trip to Maryland with my best friend has been cancelled due to the foot of snow that has fallen upon this city. But rather than moping around like I intended to when I woke up this morning, I took advantage of being snowed in the house. I baked cookies. I played some guitar. I worked on choreography. I practiced my variation.
Which reminds me! I forgot to mention to you all that I have picked out my pieces that I'm going to present for the scholarship audition that I do every year. I have chosen a Balanchine variation from "Who Cares?" that I learned this summer at the Richmond Ballet Summer Intensive and a contemporary piece that I have been working on to Paolo Nutini's "Last Request". The audition is March 7th, and I have started rehearsing with Pedro to perfect the variation. All the money that I receive through that audition will definitely help me out towards wherever I'm going this summer!
The deadline for the new banner is supposed to be tonight. But I really don't care if a few more entries trickle into my e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org). I haven't gotten many, but they're all great! Definitely less of a difficult decision.
I hope most of you are having a warmer, less snowy weekend than I am!
But any of you care to join me in my snuggie by the fire?
