I am honestly so speechless right now. Defining Rhythm was so amazing, today was probably one of my best experiences so far. I lost my voice screaming and cheering for everyone. I’m so proud of Unique Movement, since this was their first time competing. Congrats to The Mooks for placing third, UFP for placing second, and most importantly ProjectD for winning the competition. When I heard their name being called, Newgroundz and Defined Movement shot up out of their seats and started running towards the stage. Everyone was crying and we were all hugging each other. The one thing I love is that when when one team wins, it feels like our whole fambam wins. My heart was beating so fast and I couldn’t stop smiling; I still can’t stop smiling. I love you and I’m so proud of you ProjectD.
Whenever ProjectD has a new set we always see them rehearsing in the studio. We usually know all of their songs and we probably know some of the choreography. But none of the junior teams have seen this set at all yet. ProjectD planned on keeping this set a secret because today at Defining Rhythm they’re dedicating the whole thing to us; their two junior teams. The fact that they said we inspire them this much, makes me feel so blessed to be apart of this whole family.
I waste my time and energy on what doesn’t matter in my life. I shouldn’t get angry, distressed, nor should I focus my thoughts on something so meaningless. I need to stop paying attention to the little things in my life. What I worry about now, in ten years when I think back, I’m going to wonder why I cared so much. I need to learn how to care less.
I finally finished me choreo project today.. It was assigned two months ago, and when I started it I liked it. It’s due tomorrow and I just finished more than half of it today. I don’t like it anymore.
One thing I will never understand is why people hate others for no reason. Did they ever do anything to you or someone you are close to? If not, I don’t understand your reasoning. Is it because you just feel like it? I swear, people just love to start unnecessary drama and bullshit. Why don’t you get to know someone before you start “hating” them.
This was the first time I have ever seen someone lying in a hospital bed almost unconscious. It was pretty hard because as soon as I saw Abby, my heart just dropped. She was struck by a car outside of her high school while trying to cross the street. I know that our whole dance fambam is going to keep her in their prayers, I just hope she doesn’t get worse. I love her though, and I can’t wait for her to come back to dance with dm and give me those tight hugs :)
I have been working on my choreo project for the last hour or two.. I’m sweating and I’m starting to lose my balance if I stay still for too long (I don’t know how that’s possible). Usually after I procrastinate on these, I’m not proud of my piece. Although right now I’m really starting to like my choreography and my musicality. I guess I’m just having a lot of fun with this song.
Learned the basics of popping and waving today at rehearsal. It was so out of my element, but I actually really liked it. Dancers came in from The Mooks and Part Time Model to help us. We were split into three different groups so it would be easier to teach us. I liked the fact that I learned more out of that, but I have a feeling my arms are going to hurt in the morning..
My mom said she might give me a present starting today until my actual birthday on Monday.. But then she said, “Wait, that makes us seem Jewish.” Today was fun and really tiring, especially playing manhunt and then forgetting about Julius.. I wish there were more days like these, with Newgroundz and some of DM. I have a feeling that it will be like this in the future though..
“I learned the hard way that I cannot always count on others to respect my feelings, even if I respect theirs. Being a good person doesn’t guarantee that others will be good people, too. You only have control over yourself and how you choose to be as a person. As for others, you can only choose to accept them or walk away.”—Unknown (via kari-shma)
My mom obviously doesn’t know the amount of times I went to the city. It’s funny because when she found out that I was planning on going today, she gave me a big lecture. She told me that I don’t know the city, I’m not ready for the problems that arise, I’m not going to know my way out of the port authority or how to move around after that. I almost burst out laughing because I thought about the first time I went and how we were so lost trying to get out of the port authority. And then that one problem that arose when we ended up in Brooklyn instead of Manhattan. It wasn’t really a lecture because I actually do know about the city, more than you think.. I love my mom though because she told me that she doesn’t believe in punishments.
I basically sat in Joey’s house all day eating and watching t.v. We decided to go to the mall out of boredom. When we got there, we saw Michelle, a slut named Christian, and Jelinda was there too :3 It was weird seeing so much people I knew though. Well, I’m tired so I might sleep early tonight..
Whenever I work out, I find that day to be productive.
Today Joey and I worked out and I was dying half-way through. It felt pretty good though, so we made a plan to do this every day during spring break. We’re supposed to be getting into our summer bods. I swear that I’m not going to slack off any day this week, I’m pretty determined. The rest of my day was basically spent with my brother and then Christian and Gabe. After my workout the day was pretty relaxing, and different because I haven’t hung out with Gabe in a really long time. I like today though, and I’m excited for jogging tomorrow morning.

I don’t know why, but it feels so good when your muscle memory kicks in. You don’t remember the choreography, but once the song comes on and you go for it, all of the moves just come back to you. It’s like I didn’t even know I had that in me. It’s so strange seeing myself dancing back then.. I love seeing how far dancing has brought me. It still amazes me how much better everyone has gotten, now just think how we’ll be in the next few years..
