Thou greatest enemy is thyself

Elation and consternation

OK so I’ve just knocked together a skeleton of a schedule with Lester for our Bangkok trip later today. Needless to say, I’m damn excited!!! I had fun packing the different outfits and umm…toiletries. *Coughs* massage oil.

Oh by the way, let me share the good news: I passed my Basic Theory Test, took 2o/50min. The guy on my left finished in 15min, didn’t bother to check and passed. It stressed me out laaa…but I suspect he’s a repeat. The failure rate is 50% so whew~ don’t need to waste money :B

After that I had a brief dinner with Darling at TPY and chionged down to Chinatown to see Deli Ge and Co. The lao shi ji ppl were takin hip-hop learned from a video, respect man! But I was mainly there to support the Jazz Gold Star dancers: Fen, Adam and Sophie. I can say that Sophie improved a lot and that teachers not necessarily have good memories =p

Thinking back, I didn’t regret my decision to have a hiatus from the troupe, but keeping in contact wise, there is a slight tinge of ‘if only I had spent more time visiting them’. Crossing my fingers that dance will be on other days when lao shi moves to Tanjong Pagar CC, cuz Shanna’s more or less fixed on Sat mornings and I’ve DE after that.

Heard some advice that I already knew from someone who really knows what’s it like. Most dance groups tend to be quite clannish, and discourage their members from joining another for fear that they’ll defect over. But unfortunately, one has to gain more exposure elsewhere to improve. The secret to still belonging without being physically there is to divide your time well (whether it’s attending the occasional practice, calling up to show concern or turning up for special events). The problem is, lao shi is an all or nothing kind of guy, and I feel that a better way to keep us would actually be to let go and trust us to come back again. I’m just not sure if the effort’s worth it.

OK i’ve decided not to bring my beloved Macbook over to Bangkok, so updates again when I’m back! And I promise to buy souvenirs for everyone! Even Liling cuz you’ll be back when I’m back yay!
