Small is Good

So not that this is news to you but I’ve been a very bad blogger… mostly because I’ve been a very bad ballet student. My injury is pretty much healed up. I do have permanent damage that I have to learn to live with but I’m pretty sure that will end up being more than manageable. But another event has made a big change in my daily schedule – my PhD advisor is going on a sabbatical next year to South Africa so I have to finish my dissertation by December, everything, including the defense. That shaves months off the timeline that I had set. So there will be very little time for dancing until it’s done.

I was going to shut the blog down completely for the rest of the year but its nice to have a ballet journal even when I’m not dancing myself. And I’m still watching as much ballet as I can and it’s interesting how much ballet can be infused into everyday life beyond ballet class, so I do have things to blog about. So for the next few months, if you’ll bear with me, I’m going to do some quick and fast micro-style blogging.

  1. Oh I’m sad to hear that you’re not getting to do much ballet for the rest of the year, but I understand the stress of thesis madness. Good luck! And I look forward to when you’re back online.

  2. i’m totally ok with that. 😉 good to read your injury is better now and i’m absolutely sure that you’ll manage to finish your dissertation till december. yes, and it’ll be awesome because it’s yours :))))

  3. So good to hear you’re on the mend. I’ve been a bad blogger as well, and I have no excuse but procrastination. 🙂 Also need to periodically remind myself that I don’t need to write a full-on novella each time I blog, so small is good indeed! By the way, I keep meaning to say how lovely your blog redesign is!

    P.S. I realized it’s almost been a year since our little tweetup in L.A. I sense a blog post coming on…

    • Aw, thanks, Jeff! I started to work on my blog and then got busy but once the dissertation is done there is so much that I want to do! BIG plans 🙂 Get to posting, Jeff! You should definitely jump in on Nichelle’s Dance Advantage sharing circle! Nice way to get motivated to do a blog post AND have a fun dance discussion with other bloggers! xo

I'd love to hear your thoughts!
