Miscellany Monday

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

Oh goodness... it's been way too long since I did a Miscellany Monday post. Being that I have many things to say but each of them is not worth writing a whole post on, I think this is the perfect way to sort out my thought and let all of you know of the activities that have taken place on Literary Lane lately.

{one} Dance. That pretty much says it all... that is, if you're wondering why I have been out-of-blog for the past week. Dance, dance, dance, and yet more dance. I had class on Monday and Tuesday, a dress rehearsal on Wednesday, class on Thursday after tutorial, another dress rehearsal on Friday, and then the recital on Sunday. Whew! *wipes brow* 'Twas the busiest week of my life, I think. The recital went splendidly, and was such fun. Oh, and did I mention that on Monday I was informed that my ankles are now strong enough to go en pointe? Mm-hmm. That definitely made my day year. :)

{two} Spanish. My last exam was on Thursday. It was nerve-wracking and hectic, but I made it through the test. And actually, it wasn't that hard at all. What was hard was the building tension each day that occurred whenever my thoughts wandered and I spent too much time thinking about it. But it's over, and it wasn't that hard, and I got a good grade. Now I don't have any more schoolwork to worry about (except that necessary evil known as geometry, which I am still working my way through... slowly) until late August. I feel like dancing a jig. Anyone care to join me?

{three} Unsinkable. The first giveaway ended this week! Can you believe it? I certainly can't. Time doesn't just fly--it zooms. Now that the first giveaway is over, the second one has begun. Care to join? Click here. Have absolutely no idea what Unsinkable is and are shaking your head in utter confusion? Click here.

{four} Violets Are Blue. I have been such a bad writer lately. What with everything that's been going on in my life (mainly dance, but also exams), writing has really fallen to the wayside. I have to admit that I'm not a very disciplined writer. When I get a good idea, I'll write for hours. But when it comes to research and editing what I've already written... well, let's just say I'm not quite so eager. Once I sit down and get into it, I do fine. It's the actual deciding to sit down and forcing myself to start that is hard. *sigh* But I have a deadline. And people with deadlines don't really get to choose when they write. 

{five} "I had a dream..." Have you ever heard of the song "Dream" by Priscilla Ahn? It was in my dance recital. Ohhh my. That song is so pretty. I love, love, love it. The very whimsical-ness of it, the delicate and pretty tune, everything about it is so... dreamy. :) Look it up--you won't regret it. 

{six} Sleep is a precious gift that should never--ever--be taken for granted. And this is coming from a girl who got to bed at nearly 11 o' clock P.M. every night this week. Not to mention the fact that I had to wake up at 5:30 A.M. Thursday morning for tutorial. I slept in as much as I could on the days that I didn't have any morning activities, but it wasn't the same. Besides, I'm an early bird. I don't like lying in bed late: it makes me feel lazy. My opinion of rest and its value has been changed drastically this week.

Well, that about concludes everything that's been going on in my life lately. Now I think I'll go make myself a cup of tea and get around to that writing that needs to be done. :)

6 epistles:

  1. Just went and looked up that Dream song. LOVE it! :D

  2. I really enjoyed your update, Elizabeth Rose! It sounds like you've been crazy busy lately. Whew... just reading about it all makes me tired! :D

    Hope you're having a great week so far! :)

    ~ Love,

  3. I just looked up the dream song too! It is very sweet, I've shared it on my blog. :)

  4. 1) Congratulations! I was in ballet for many years, though I never made it to pointe. : )

    2) Yes, I'll jig with you, any day! :D

    3) Time certainly does zoom.

    6) An insight that will serve you well the rest of your life.


  5. Congrats on the dance recital!!
    Also, Priscilla Ahn is one of my favorite-est musical artists. All of her music is lovely and whimsical, and she herself so talented. Her live singing is pitch perfect and spot on- nothing artificial or overdone, just simple, beautiful music. :)

  6. I love dream!
