Living in NYC

Living in NYC

At the start of 2016 I moved to New York City. Why? I’m not entirely sure… I knew only that I wanted to try it, and now seemed a good a time as any. I had no steady job, no boyfriend, no house payment keeping me in one place (Adulthood seems to be dodging me like […]

2018 Mantras to Live By

2018 Mantras to Live By

 I didn’t jump into 2018 with resolutions and motivation trailing behind me like pixie dust. January was a constant struggle. I had expenses pop up at every turn which stressed my bank account in its already fragile post-Christmas state. I started back to school and the change was more drastic than I had anticipated.

Transitioning Careers After Dance

Dancing is not something you do forever. I dread the day that I will say goodbye to dance as a career, but also anticipate it–like an uncomfortable lunch date you want to get out of the way. I tell friends and family about “the transition” in an effort to remind myself that the end is near. […]
