Sorry I’ve been quiet lately! I was on a family vacation on a cruise to the Western Caribbean! It was a fantastic trip and I was sad that it had to end.
Now that I’m back, I’ve been catching up with emails and work. Slowly but surely, I’ll get back in the swing of things.
I wanted to write a quick update about the team Irish step dancing class I took.
It was really fun, but I won’t be continuing. I was so anxious during class because my fingers were sweating like crazy and I had to hold hands with the other girls. We were all sweating a ton, (and it didn’t help that we were in a classroom with no air conditioning or windows!!) but I was still too self-conscious about my hands. I couldn’t relax and have fun. I was checking the clock every 5 minutes to see when class would end. It’s unfortunate because the dance part is actually pretty cool, and apparently I am needed for a competing team.
No one said anything about my hands or gave me funny looks, but I still couldn’t get past it. I’m sure you all know how I feel!
Anyway, I’m still taking 2 hours of Irish dance a week (soft and hard shoe) and love it. I’m lucky I found a dance where I can keep my hands to myself, down at my sides.
I wish HH didn’t have to be my deciding factor with something I love, but I guess I’d prefer to not be anxious and self-conscious so that’s how this one has to go.
My next goal with my partially dry hands- learn knitting! 🙂
Thanks for reading and enjoy the end of summer!
