I'm so extremely excited.
1. Belly dancing! Yay, yay, and more yay! I was thinking that the whole thing would be completely new, but as I was practicing the moves in the parking lot during my work break, I realized that some of the things are helped along by my fencing practice. Especially the constant partially bent knees. Mmm...I know you, you aching muscles! You are not original!
Not to copy this post
but I do know that this eventually will make for a better body. But, I want it now, now, now! I want to see results quickly and I feel that my impatience often hamstrings me. I give up too easily...but I think that I've done better about things in the recent past. I didn't give up fencing until my neurologist suggested that I avoid it because of the nasty tendency to take hits to the head (with the mask on of course...) that couldn't be helping out my migraines any. But, I kept up the footwork...and I kept up walking all over campus everyday. So...I lost weight. I lost a dress size. I gained confidence. That doesn't mean that I will think I have a good body any time soon. Though, yes...I'm trying to believe it when I'm told I'm sexy.
I liked the class a lot, a lot. The music that belly dancing uses always makes me think of the Cairo markets, sweltering days with hibiscus tea, the smell of saffron on the Nile Breezes. It was also nice to see scimiotix
there (though I think she's deserting us...) as well as two of my former Greek students. I didn't like the fact that the other teacher (?) kept trying to help me. I know that I'm not going to get physical things the first time. If I ignore you, leave me alone. I'm paying and I'm not disrupting anyone else. So, leave it be.
2. I have officially taken the new job. I am a palletizer for 214 line. It is all around better and I'm very, very excited about it. Go, me, go. :)
