Finding Some ME Time...




Finding a balance beam is so exhilarating! My friend and I took turns jumping!



I finally found a really nice ballet teacher who was willing to teach me.


But what I had signed up as a form of relaxation and joint-strengthening was a little stressful. Why? I was stressing about ballet because I had to get it just right.



But I made up my mind that I was going to just enjoy the dance and forget about the technique. Because eventually, with repeated lessons, the technique would perfect itself.

And I think I had my best session ever.





Me time...




And today was about the most gorgeous an Autumn can get. So I packed my stuff and headed to the pier by the river that runs through the university and plopped down to enjoy the sun. I kicked off my shoes and played with the water and just...did nothing else.



There is something very calming about being surrounded by nothing but water and geese...




I think I finally found my perfect balance in university. As much as volunteer work and a carefully planned routine keeps my universe in check and keeps me relaxed, I realised I forgot one component all this while.



I forgot to do something every week that was selfishly just mine. Something that is just me spoiling myself with ME-time.

And I think I found it with some dance and some solitary walking...
