Upgrade #1 - moving to a big school for high school
It never fails. My Mom asks me for the nth time, " Are you sure you want to move?"
I look at her face and I know she's trying to smile for me and be supportive. However, it is exactly as she claims - she is more attached to my current school than I am. My Mum- she does have a hard time dealing with major changes even if it's a major change in MY life. hahahaha She does it in such a funny way.
I spent 9 years at my school. Junior Kinder to 7th grade. I met my best friend Nina there. I was a newcomer during JK but the moment we saw a HUGE spider- we hugged as if trying to save each other LOL and it was exactly at that time that my bond with her was sealed.
I had (for the most part) the same classmates for 9 years with some additions here and there. With only 40 students - divided into 2 sections, it was like playing house on a LARGE scale. I expect that we will continue seeing each other during weekends or when someone celebrates their birthdays or when there's a nice movie out.. haha I'll be seeing them a lot.
I'll miss my school. I'll miss my teachers, especially Miss Rivor.
The decision is mine and I've made up my mind to change schools.
From my small school to a bigger one. I mean BIG.
I've already passed the entrance exams and the interviews.
I feel a pinch when I think about my friends but I would really like to focus on college preparation. ( I am quite the nerd thinking about college this early but what can I do? I worry about things like that) I want to meet more people and experience new things.
Upgrade #2 Welcome to INTERVANCE
I started with dancing class last summer 2009 at a dance studio not far from here. I really was so awkward at first but over time and with lots and lots of practice, I've become more confident in myself. I still won't dance in public but in the privacy of my room and the security of the studio I let it all out. hahahahaha This makes me laugh so much because people would NEVER expect me to be dancing Hip-hop. All I can say is I LOVE IT. It's like a new book has opened up for me - just like when I started cosplaying. I met wonderful people and became close to them. That's exactly what is happening with my dance now too. I get all giddy thinking that I HAVE more FRIENDS- and still gaining. I've always been shy and I believe that lately I've been moving out of the shadow of my shy self. I'm just really happy.
I started out in intermediate dance but joined the gauging- it was 2 classes taught by amazing dancers and at the end of a few weeks training, we dance and were judged to see if we should stay at the intermediate level or intervance which is the middle of intermediate and advanced. LOL I'm all babbling because I'm just too excited. I really worked hard, wanting nothing more than to get into intervance class. I was even dreaming about it. HAHAHA
Hard work paid OFF! During gauging- my dance teacher Kuya Kevin told me that I need to rise up to the challenge and that I won't be treated like a kid because I'm only 13. I am sure that I just looked stupid with a dreamy look and a BIG smile on my face. hahaha
I made it. INTERVANCE dance class. *SOOOO HAPPY
There are other upgrades but these 2 are the most important ones to me. I feel that my life is changing and it's for the better. I am happy. I feel the desire to accomplish more goals that I've set for myself.
On cosplay - I love it still. I'll be doing a few this summer.
I'll try to upgrade that too.
Thank you for reading.
