Back to the Grind
Today’s my last official day of summer vacation (yup, first world academic problems). I’ve already completed my first assignment for my exercise science class, so that puts me a hair ahead of the curve.
This semester, I’ll be taking precalc, Senior Seminar, and the aforementioned Intro to Exercise Science class, which is web-based.
Senior Sem is a research project-based class, and having already run an independent project, I’ve got a leg up on that. I think I’m going to put together a new project, though originally I planned to continue with my previous research.
I moved my schedule around a bit to avoid having to roll up to campus four days a week. This will make staying on top of school and ballet earlier (it reduces commute time immensely). Academic classes will be Monday/Wednesday; ballet will be M/W/S. That leaves Tuesday and Thursday open for homework, housework, and all that other stuff.
On the ballet front, I spent some time yesterday drilling the glissade – jeté combination to get it into my feet. It’s weird what gives you trouble as a returning student.
Grand jeté? No problem. Tour jeté? Heck to the yes. Anything involving sauté? Got it. Pique turns? All day long, brother.
Itty-bitty basic glissade combos? Ugh. Don’t ask.
But it’s coming along.
So that’s it for now. The semester looks doable. It’s really weird to think that it’s probably my last as an undergrad.
Life moves forward.
