I have a thing about being late. I don’t like it. In fact, if I am late to something–anything–I start to get sick to my stomach, antsy, nervous, ready to spontaneously combust, because the THE WORLD DOES NOT LIKE LATE. In truth and reality, lots of people are late. All the time. I’m just usually not one of them.
But lately, I am late. I’m late with a book deadline, late posting my blog, late, late, late. I still make it on time to work and to appointments. But these major things have become a real issue with me.
And I don’t get any less upset with myself for BEING late. I don’t just blow it off in a “I’m late again, oh well” kind of attitude like so many people that I know. I hate it. I want to change it. I just don’t know how.
It seems there are two kinds of people in the world. Those that are always late, and those that are always on time. I suppose there are degrees to this, as well. But I really want to be known as the one who is on time.
So, forgive me for being late with my blog post, which should have been up on Friday. I am suffering from a case of summer (spring?) pneumonia, and have been all afuzz in the brain because of all the medication I am taking.
I don’t want to be one of those people who run on their own time. I know your time is important, and I intend to take that seriously.
NOW, let’s talk about the premiere of SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE? Yay, I am so excited that this show is on again, and even more excited to hear they are going to have a Fall edition! Most of you know that my youngest is deeply enmeshed in the dance world, and so, by proxy, am I.
The truth is, I love to watch really good dancers, and our studio, Infinity Dance in Ogden and Brigham, is FILLED with incredible talent. I know you will see some of these girls on SYTYCD when they get old enough!
For example, this girl is one I KNOW you will see. The choreography is by Mandy Moore.
And here is another one you will be seeing in the future. Although not real soon, as she is only 14. She is one of my daughter’s very good friend, and is amazing.
And here is a routine we did that one overall at every competition we went to. My daughter is in this dance, as are the two whose videos I showed you.
I’m excited to share these with you, and you can see a little bit of what I do. I work for the dance studio, in addition to my day job, and really, they are both full time jobs. In between all of that, I am trying to be a writer. Supporting my family comes first, but writing will always be my love.
I’m going to figure out how to make it all work. Maybe it’s like a dance. I just have to get the choreography right, so that I am in the right place at the right time… I’ll keep you posted.
