At the Ballet

While I mostly post about nerd stuff I do have other loves and interests that I realize now that I have failed to mention in the 6 months that I’ve had this blog. For example, I love ballet (well most theater actually). I have tickets to the ballet tomorrow that I’m so psyched over, I haven’t been to the ballet in practically forever (meaning I was so young that I don’t really remember it). When I was little I was a bit of a girly girl (shocker right?) and I wanted to be a ballerina more that anything, unfortunately I’ve always been a poor kid and my family couldn’t afford lessons. I watch the Nutcracker on tv every Christmas and it’s always a mix of “I love this!” and a wistful “I wanted to be one so bad”. I often wonder what would happen if I had been allowed to take lessons…well I wouldn’t be the freak you know and love, I would probably be a prep (my sworn enemy) so I guess it’s good I didn’t get lessons.  Anyways, I’m really excited for tomorrow. It’s a contemporary ballet so I’m wondering how it will be. I’ll probably love it. Not only do I love the art of ballet I also am a huge fan of the process of going out to the theater. The whole night is magical: you get to dress up and when you get there there are a bunch of other people dressed up. It gives off an excited energy. My favorite part is the hush right before a show starts, the energy that has been building up all night is at its highest and then the curtains open and the energy goes from a tense excitement to a…it’s hard to describe…kinda like a gasp? It’s a huge intake of breath and then after the show is over you let it out and you didn’t even know you were holding your breath the whole time. Then you leave happy but just a little sad that it’s over. And that’s what I’ll be doing tomorrow night ^_^ it counts as my birthday present this year and I have to tell you, I couldn’t ask for a better present.

Everything was beautiful at the ballet.
