""So today’s talk was about achieving childhood dreams" I said "But did you figure out the head fake?"
I paused, the room was silent.
"It’s not about how to achieve your dreams. It’s about how to lead you life. If you lead you life the right way, the karma will take care of itself. The dreams will come to you."
I clicked to the next slide, and a question filled the large screen: “Have you figured out the second head fake?”
I took a breath. I decided to speak at a faster clip than I had before. Maybe if I just talked faster, I thought, I could get through it. I repeated the words on the screen.
"Have you figured out the second head fake?"
Then I told them: The talk wasn’t just for those in the room. “It was for my kids.”
I clicked to the very last slide, a photo of me standing by our swing set, holding a smiling Logan with my right arm and sweet Chloe with my left, Dylan sitting happily on my shoulders.”"
This commercial is amazing.
I work at an Under Armour store and we got to see this commercial way before they showed it on TV and everyone was speechless except one dude. He was all like “What the hell? Why the fuck would they make a ballet commercial? It’s not a sport.” My boss was quick to jump down his throat and said “Alright then get your ass on the floor and work on you tippy toes for the rest of your shift. If I fucking see you off them you will be the first of the temps to get cut!” He was on his tippy toes for the last hour and a half of his shift lol
I support that story
Oh my gosh that’s awesome.
This is unrelated to my blog (I quite love ballet, but run a writing and reading blog primarily) but as a dancer, JEEZ LOUISE LOOK AT HER LEGS HOW COULD ANYONE EVER EVER EVER LOOK AT HER AND BE LIKE ‘NAH, SHE’LL NEVER BE GREAT’
Beyond that, her story is just so incredible. Overcoming racism, staying determined and passionate even though she did start late.
Amazing, truly amazing.

Do you ever just hear someone say something so ridiculously wrong and like outlandishly absurd in a sidebar conversation your friends are in but like you’re not really part of the conversation so you really can’t fix it without being rude and you just sort of ruminate on how wrong and terrible the spread idiocy is as it occurs, one misplaced and uncorrected yolo at a time ya dig.
