Nope, not going to watch it, going to learn it!

I am so excited, I signed for adult introduction to ballet and my first class is tonight!  Here's me, 55 years old, learning ballet. Woooooo!

I've had a fascination for ballet since a friend took me to see The Nutcracker many years ago, as a Christmas gift. I was enthralled by the dance and the grace and it was in my head for years after as something I'd love to be able to do.

For many reasons, not the least of which is that I would never want to dance the part they would have wanted of me back then, I never really got into the idea. Then recently, I started seeing ads on Facebook for it and decided to give it a go. I had no idea that it was even possible at my age, but sure enough, classes for the absolute beginner adult were being offered and how could I pass that up?

Now, a big part of why now is that I am much more healed from my GCS and, well, much more able to wear very tight fitting clothing than I would have preferred to do in the past. 

Now, I know that ballerina is often used for professional dancers, but hey, I can still call myself that in my head. So, off to dance! 💜 🩰

I will cut people out of my life for this

The Conservative Party of Canada just voted to added blocks on gender affirming medical care for trans kids and to end race-based hiring. I'm done being polite to people in my life when it comes to this.

Bill Mahar is weak

The surest sign of a weak man is a man who feels the need to assert his manliness to the world. Bill Mahar is a weak man.
