Haha! Sorry everyone for not updating my blogs lately. I guess I'll be honest, I forgot! I know, bad excuse. But at least I'm updating now!
Anyways, the Medibank Icehouse is showing a Christmas Show in December again this year, and I am in it! Yay! It's not what I expected, but indeed I'm having fun. We've only started the rehearsals, so there's not much special things going on, but I will be performing in a few songs. I am in "The Most Wonderful Time of the Year", "I am the Walrus", "Poker Face" and the finale! I don't think we find out our costumes yet until closer to the performing day, but rehearsals are definitely going by fast and I can't wait for the actual day!
I haven't updated much about my progress, but one thing's for sure, I am now in Youth Freeskate 4! I've gone a long way, and still a long way to go! After Freeskate 4, I'll be in Preliminary. Preliminary isn't listed in the Medibank Icehouse's skate school, so I need to figure out how to get into Preliminary if I ever pass my Freeskate 4 test. I'm going to ask someone I know who's passed her Freeskate 4 test.
At the moment, I am working on my camel spin (needs a bit of work in the amount of revolutions, but at least I got the basic position right), loop jump (landed it a few times, but still needs a lot of work), Lutz (Luts, loots, however you want to pronounce it. Needs A LOT of work. Can't seem to get the full rotation) and heaps more to work on. I get the feeling that I won't pass this test, because of my Lutz, but I hope I get it right soon.
Just yesterday, during public skating, I fell over (just by pathetically standing there, I didn't fall from jumping or spinning... -.-) and hit my head. Thank goodness it was nothing. I only tend to forget things from moments before but now I'm fine. I head doesn't hurt anymore and it's not stopping me from attending Christmas Show rehearsals tomorrow! >:D
Haha! Finally bought my first dress! It was on sale - only for $100 - and it was prettier than the others. Good thing it had a lower price than the others. Some other dresses were more plain than the one I have, yet cost more. I could've gotten a better dress online, but I guess I just thought it'd be easier for me to buy one in my Proshop that I could afford and was pretty.
Anyways, during the day, I ended up staying almost 10 hours. I usually stay for approximately 6 hours, but I found out last minute that Christmas Show rehearsals were at 3:15pm. I thought it was at 4pm. Because I thought it was at 4, I thought to finish at 2pm, go home, then come back again for the rehearsals. But no, it was at 3:15, so I might as well stay. So I did. Now I regret it because my body is killing me. I hope this won't last long.
That's pretty much today's summary. There's not much that has happened. I just thank my mother so much for the dress. I told her I wanted to use my own money to pay for it, yet my mum pushed me into allowing her to buying it. I owe her so much.
