Field hockey

Well, yesterday, we had a game that we won 3-1 without our best player and another 8th grader that is really good. Sadness because it was only 2 8th graders, me and this other really other really good player. But it was ok since we won but the night before, I had gotten 4.5 hours of sleep. Properly less.
I'm not even kidding.
But I am glad that we won and that the weather was cooler.
Today, I had another game that we won 6-0 (?) Maybe it was 5-0 but either way, we won. our team really pulled together this year and became a team.
We talk more and make better passes. We are just a better team in general.

Today, me and my friend Walker sat down and talked for an hour. It was nothing deep or personal. We already did that at camp but we just laughed and hung out, which is what I needed. Sorry, but the friends at my school drive me crazy and I can't really take them some times. Actually, most of the time. I just hang around them too much but Walker and I sat and talked and we can now laugh about how tired we were this morning and the amount of hilarious things that we said.

I had dance rehearsals today and I'm with a bung of 11 year old's that can't really dance and with a bunch of my friends who can dance.
But, that's ok because she gave slighter harder parts.
God, I am sore.
And tired.

I had I really good dinner. It was from Mediterranean Deli and it was so good. When my mom and I were there after my game yesterday, the owner gave me two free baklava!! Med Deli is amazing because the food is light and organic and fresh and great in general.

I went to Locopops today and it was nice to spend some time with my mom.

My mom and I haven't always gotten along and now that I have gotten older and I am more patient, me and her have got a better relationship and I really like spending time with her. We never were like the mother and daughter who screamed at each other daily but there were more than a couple fights and I like how now we are at peace with each other.

I get the baby Thursday and I am ready to get it over with. I kinda want it and all my friends want to meet the f***ing baby and I don't understand. I'm gonna name him Charlie. I told my friend Maria and she was like "Awwww!! You have to come to hip hop Friday!! I wanna meet him." All I could say was: "No you don't!"

This blog post is going no where. What ever.

Who else is really tired?!?!? I want the summer to come. Come fast!! But March went by so fast. And April. This spring is going by so fast and I don't know if I want it to speed up or slow down.

Dance is not how flexible you are, or how graceful, or how pretty you are, or how high your kicks are.
It is about what is inside of you, the life that is in your heart.
Stretching your limits and extending your arms.
Dance, for me, has always been there. I started dancing when I was 4. 10 years. A decade. WOW!!
Ok, but I'm saying that even though I have been dancing for the last 10 years, I am the best dancer ever. I haven't made it too any dance companies, only a couple festivals and seen a couple dance companies perform.
Dance is a great because it is fun, energetic and makes you work out.
Anyone can do it.
Dance is like finding your inner bird.
A bird?
Yes, a bird. Because a bird is small yet powerful. It's strong and might. It can go great distances and convey many messages.
When you turn on music and have 20 different dancers dance to the song, it will be all different because each dance has a different bird inside them.
It may be hard to find the bird inside you because one hasn't made it's self obvious yet but there is a bird inside of your, wanting to come out and express yourself.
Dance can break barriers. It can force down walls and make things right in the world.
But it is hard. It's hard to push past the pain that can be inside of you. There might be a lot of walls and barriers that are inside of you but that is what great about dance.
You can push past everything and go for something that is yours.
Own that something that is hidden.
It will be tough because pain is never fun. And you know you have achieved when you are able to push passed hard times and see the new.
So, keep pushing down those walls and keep breaking new barriers for yourself. Create new connections.
Dance is not how good you are. it's not how flexible, how great, how fast you get moves.
It's about finding yourself, releasing that bird and tearing down walls.

So The Eno River Festival is in July. As much as I want to go, and I really really really want to, I am going to be in Switzerland. We have some friends and the dad runs the Eno and it is soooo cool. It's basically Shakori Hills Grassroots in the summer.
In case you don't know, I am half Swiss and I am going back to Switzerland June 30th and I am so totally physicked to go. All of friends are there and I can hike mountains and swim in 20 C water and I am so ready to go and OH MY GOD some one get me there!!

I am ready to be done with school! I am ready to speak Swiss-German for a month. I am doing a climbing camp and I am going to be jumping off bridges and biking and eating cherries and fresh fruit and getting food at the local grocery store and playing street soccer and having so much fun and feeding the ducks and the swans and there are a lot of things I really want to do.
Eating the pastries. Drinking the orange juice -- which by the way, is the bloody best orange juice you will ever drink in you entire life. No kidding.
Oh, I am ready to leave.
I'm not going to do a song today. I have many ideas but....
