If this doesn’t make you dance, I don’t know what will.

Formals or Proms as they are called in Australia are an interesting time in a young persons life. No matter what year of schooling that they may be in. There is SO much pressure to have the perfect “dance”. The perfect dress, the perfect “ride”…and of course the perfect date…But do you NEED to even have a date?
I went to both of my senior formal/proms without a date and I ended up having the most fun. Here’s my list of reasons why:
When writing by hand do you prefer to use a pencil or pen?
I prefer pen, I will usually only use a pencil in a emergency. For example, if I’m on the phone and I need something to write with. Also if I’m writing on something that I shouldn’t be writing on, but it’s the only piece of paper around. Then I can erase it later.
Would you rather be an amazing dancer or an amazing singer?
Good question! I love to dance everywhere anyway. I think though I’d love to be an amazing singer, because I can make more a career from it. I love dancing and I was a ballet dancer for a long time, but the dancing world is SO competitive and you can only do it for so long. Unless of course something goes wrong with your vocal nodules I suppose.
If you were on a debate team, what subject would you relish debating?
Oh, probably some ancient thing. Who was to really blame for Cleopatra’s downfall…Mainly because that was my big project on my senior year and I got a really good grade for it,lol
What are you a “natural” at doing?
This is going to sound really “lame”. I am naturally at being me =D
What’s something you like to do the old-fashioned way?
Dance! I love those dancing videos of Astaire and Rogers, and I have such a crush on Gene Kelly. They just moved. When they dance, they just seem to move (sounds like a really stupid way to describe it I know). The best way I can describe it, it just seemed natural to move that way, almost as natural as walking. All that twerking and krumping, it’s just not dancing to me, it’s all just disjointed…Just my personal opinion.
What’s your favorite genre of book or movie?
Its hard to say musical a favourite genre for books, but musicals truly are probably my favourite genre. I guess if I was looking for a genre that was to fit both, would have to be fantasy. Lord of the Rings springs to mind where the genre really does fit both the book and the movie.
How often do you people watch?
I do it quiet a lot, if I’m at work I probably am doing it at least once or twice a day. Where I work currently we are the central part of helping people find their way, we are the front desk and we’ve got these huge windows that we can look out at. It’s incredibly addictive. It’s incredibly addictive for people watching and day dreaming on a quiet day.
What have you only recently formed an opinion about?
Good Question…There is a lot of different issues out there and lots of different opinions and I have re-looked at a lot of mine own. This is what I’ve discovered. There are far too many different opinions out there and that is what they are…Opinions…Just because you or I think it a certain way doesn’t make it’s right. For anyone, or any level. You can sit on your social media and try to change the meaning of a word to suit yourself, it still doesn’t mean that’s what that’s means. You can tell yourself that meaning or that word is not the same when it applies to you, so you don’t have to think of yourself as the same as the people who hurt you, but you are still doing the exact same thing. I get it, it’s like the bullied becomes the bullying, or the abused become the abusers, it’s a very well known thing to happen. You trying to sit there and saying though “Well it’s the not the same when I do it” Doesn’t make it suddenly change. I mean with anything, not just bullying and abuse. If you are doing the exact same hateful and saying vile things, like those that were said or done to you…Then yes, you are the same as them. You don’t get a “Get out of Jail” free card.
I found this Tag on Vrushali Blog (you should all go and have a look here) They found it on ChocolatenWaffles’s Blog. Please go and have a look at both of them. I am doing it a little differently, because there are 100 questions in all. I am going to be breaking it up into 4 different entries over the month of February (that would make it 25 questions each time).
So let’s begin!
What is your earliest memory?
My earliest memory is actually a nightmare that I had, I don’t know why it’s stayed with me for so long. I’m more of a, if someone tells me about a memory I’ll remember it, so it’s weird that I can remember a nightmare. I don’t know if you’ve ever heard of Mr Squiggle, but I dreamt once that he was trying to kill me. That’s my earliest memory.
What was the last photo you took with your phone?
I could show you … My partners cat cracks me up sometimes.
Have you ever danced in the rain?
When I was little, I used to love doing it. As I got older though, I guess I got less brave and just can’t stop thinking about how cold it is to do and it just didn’t seem as appealing.
What is the longest you have gone without sleep?
It’d have to be about a day, it was the last time that I had an energy drink as well. I could not get to sleep and it was pretty scary. It was weird too because I used to drink them and then stopped for about a year. It was my first one in a year, I just assumed that I’d be alright, but I wasn’t.
I’m not sure if you’ve all seen this video by now, I used to do tap dancing when I was little and every now and then I get into a step-ball-change movement.

Today is the first day of Spring, and it’s really grey and cold outside, when it has been so pretty the rest of the week. Spring is my favourite time of the year and it’s here again! This Winter has felt so cold and grey for such a long time, I didn’t even have to put on my heater this morning to get ready =D Despite the horrible weather, it’s still kind of warm =D
