Happy New Year!

Well, since I haven't posted since last decade, I thought I'd send out a quick post just saying happy 2010, everyone! It's been a great year, and I hope it'll be a great one to come!

Did that make sense? Just like a lot of my crappier posts, this one was made at 12:16 at night, so yeah.

Happy New Year!

I'm not sure if anyone is actually reading this, but oh well. I'll post it anyway.

If you are reading, this is my Sharpie collection! Okay, well that's not exactly all of them, I have a bunch of mini Sharpies, and a couple Sharpie pens as well. But close enough.

I don't know why, but I find them so awesome! I started collecting them probably a year or two ago, and I almost always have a mini one in my pocket. I use them to write reminders on my arms (as you saw in a post a while ago) and occasionally draw something.
I think I have over 50.

Okay, well I'm out of things to say now. This was a rather lame post. Sorry! Hopefully I'll have a better one up soon. Also, does anyone want to do that Week Long Blogging Challenge thing again?

Pointe- an update on this one!

First off, I just looked at my first post about pointe and wow, can't believe how new and shiny my shoes were! You may not recognize them, but these are, shockingly enough, the same shoes:

Sorry about the not-so-well-taken photos, the lighting wasn't the greatest when I took them.

So yeah, they're a lot more worn now! The tip actually is a bit blacker now, I think, these photos were taken a couple weeks ago. The tap/hard shoes leave scuff marks on the studio floor and the satin picks them up.
They're starting to die (go soft and provide less support) but they've still got some life in them. These have actually lasted quite well, but then I guess I'm only taking half an hour of pointe per week. Professional ballerinas go through a pair every performance, or if it's a particularly intense show, a pair an act! So 5 months and counting is quite good.

Anyhow, thanks for reading!
