This just made me pee my pants in excitement.

Hip hop and tap! Genius. I knew there was a reason I was taking both this semester. These guys kill it.

This is happiness.

I’ve taken a new “hobby” for the summer–sailing. Which really just means, I get on my friends amazing boat, have a few glasses of wine or a couple beers and enjoy the views and the ride. Probably one of the best hobbies I’ve ever taken up for a summer. It just makes me so…happy. I think it has something to do with being on the water (among other things).

Oh this feeling is wonderful, don’t you ever turn it off.

So obviously I haven’t been having the most fantastic week or month or whatever but being the girl I am, I’m not going to let it keep me down (for long)! There have been good things going on that I just failed to mention in my last spewing of word vomit and emotion (Blogging is like therapy for me, can you tell?). And these things I will share with you now!

Numero uno: As you may or may not know, I tap dance. I had done so from ages 5 thru 12. When I was 12, we moved and after doing so, I couldn’t find a dance studio in North County that I liked (I must have been a tap snob at the time or something), so I quit. Well, I picked it back up (while living in San Francisco) and I’m currently in my third semester. When certain friends heard that I was tapping again they would not cease in their requests to see me dance. Unfortunately, I am no solo act. Tap dancing in front of people for me is like public speaking. I’d rather be tied to a chair and be forced to eat tomatoes and watch Jersey Shore than I would tap dance in front of my friends. But that’s all about to change because I decided it would be a good idea to audition for the Spring dance show at school. So I did. And guess what? I made it into one of two tap routines! Yay for me! So now all who have been absolutely dying to see me dance (Mom, Zack, Carissa, Kate, Robin, Natalie, etc.) will be able to do so for one weekend and one weekend only. And I’m not going to lie, I had my first rehearsal yesterday and I think it’s going to be freakin’ amazing. And if nothing else, I know I’m going to have a good time. After this, I don’t want to hear anymore requests for tap dances! Got it, people?!

Nummer zwei: I’ll keep it short–I’ve been kicking ass in school! I love my classes and my professors and I recently picked up a mentor of sorts in my most favorite English professor. It’s perfect. And I need something like that, so I’m a happy girl.

And with that, I leave you with this sweet little beat:

Holey, Moley, Me, Oh my, You’re the Apple of my Eye.

Alex Ebert of Ima Robot has formed a new(ish) ensemble band, Edwarde Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. Their debut album is out now and I currently cannot get enough of the song “Home”. It’s one of the most precious songs, ever! I hope you enjoy it and appreciate it as much as I do. It just makes my heart so happy.
