Okay, so much for two weeks... how about three?

Well.

It has been a hectic long while, with me being in my dorm really only to sleep and do a couple other things that didn't require time at the computer... a hectic long while that involved many dance competitions (3 to be precise), many sicknesses (probably also 3 if I really cared to count) and exams (3... though I only took two because I was sick for one).

So, to the dance competitions:

As a follower, I have yet to place in standard and have only placed at that one comp in smooth... a comp which hardly counts.

But! I have many many placements to cover for it from my other competitions.

It is for this reason that Dru, my partner, has named me a rhythm/latin dancer in denial. I guess as long as I remain in denial I can't really argue the point with him.

But enough bragging and shameless self-promotion and all the rest. I have plenty to learn and plenty to work on. But still. A very good season, I would say. :-)

The saddest thing is that with the exception of a few minor details, that list of ribbons really sums up my life over the last 3 weeks with the exception of some minor details that are for friends' eyes only.
