Aliens!

I was kidnapped by aliens. And they didn't have a decent internet connection on the mothership to allow me to blog. That's my story. For real.

Pipedreams: The Beginnings

I NEED TO DANCE!

Somehow, I can't help but play the little "What if?" game.

What if.....my parents kept me in ballet class?

I might have been a ballerina! Well, at least I would have gotten into other types of dance earlier. I think I have some sort of pipedream of becoming a dancer. But then again, I have many pipedreams. However, that's a story for another day. I love to dance! I can't stop moving...I always hear some sort of music in my head. I really think that if everyone in the world were to dance more, the world would be a happier place. There's no time to be self conscious! You should just rock out when a good song comes on...who cares if you look goofy? Well, at least that's what I think. And I'm sure I look plenty goofy dancing like a clown all the time.

Lucky for me...a friend told me about his dance studio's open house. I jumped at this opportunity to try....afro-cuban dance!! I wasn't really quite sure what to expect...but I was so freakin' excited about it! And it turned out to be AMAZING! I sweated tons (whatta workout!), was completely out of breath and had so much fun! I need to find a place that has the beginner class...I wanna dance my little heart out! That same night we went salsa dancing as well...what else could I ask for? A Saturday all for dancing. This is the way things should be.

Now...what if...my high school had a rugby team?

I would be such a kick ass rugby player!!! I always felt like there was just something about soccer that wasn't enough for me. First of all, I was waaaaay too physical. I totally used to scare the crap out of the other team. I wasn't coordinated enough to be a forward or midfielder dribbling the ball, but I was a pretty decent defence. I was pretty scary....launching myself at either
a) the ball OR
b) whoever had the ball.

So, it was not that easy to get past me. And I think I used to draw a lot of penalties. BUT! If we had a rugby team...I think it would have worked out really nicely. I have too much agression to play soccer properly. Then, I could have gone on to playing at cegep level. Which would have been impossible for soccer 'cause I'd probably get cut the first day. Cegep rugby would have been cool....rugby cuts no one. And then I could tackle people and/or run like the wind! I always thought that I would play as a back, I can be speedy. But then I got to thinking. I could play flanker! That way, I could use my speed AND make hits! Ah, the pipedreams....
