Big Jumps

Our second pep rally was yesterday. Hah, now can say that we've had a whopping total of three half-assed events in a row: the mixer, dance, and now pep rally. Wow, it kinda sucks to be on council right now. But anyway, at least I could get some good shots out of it.

All the photos in this post were processed with an action by AutumnLove! Isn't it pretty? I never use actions because I believe in handling each unique picture individually (and partly because they never work the way I want them to look like) but I fell in love with this one! Yay!

Grad showcase auditions are next week! SAY WHAT? Yeah, and I haven't finished my routine yet. I really need to find a big space to practice in because I've been doing this whole thing in my living room which is basically as big as my height length and width-wise. There's barely enough room to turn around and I can't even do fouettes because my leg would basically whack everything and drag the tv and a chair around with it. Not even kidding. So I have no idea how the spacing is going to work out when I do the real thing. I also don't know how the jumps are going to work out either because I haven't been able to do them here. It's insanely stupid how you have to BOOK the dance studio at school to use it. Technically, it's no different than any other classroom in the school so why is it so exclusive?! That pretty much means I have to be either flip or in dance to use it.

People keep reminding me that my Europe trip is in ONE WEEK. To be honest, I'm actually not as excited as I thought I would be (or as I pretend to be when they give me the countdown). I don't know why. I'm not even that interested in France & Italy, I don't even know why I wanted to go so badly in the first place. :\ Maybe if we went to Amsterdam too as the add-on trip I would be more ecstatic. I don't want this to suck. I just recently realized how much money this trip actually cost. Damn, I could get TWO round the world plane tickets from Air Brokers for cheaper than this and then I could just couch surf & crash at people's houses along the way. Oh well, NO MORE NEGATIVE THOUGHTS. :\ If I think it's going to suck, then it will.

Hi, I'm Gail. I'm a 20 year old student in Vancouver, BC. I dance and I take photographs. I have a wishbone where my backbone ought to be.

This is a place for experiments and mistakes and inconsistency and trying to find out who I am and what I want to do. This blog is a collection of bad pictures, great pictures, good luck, real food, run-on sentences, happiness, inspiration, beautiful things, and moments in time.
