It’s over. The end. Finito. I don’t quite know what to do with myself now. It’s officially summer— I should be going to the beach or working on my tan or scouting out my next bar-of-choice for Wednesday’s Center City Sips Happy Hour (I take Center City Sips very seriously)— but there’s a huge void in my life now. Plus, I kind of hate the beach.
I know I should move on and get on with my life and find something new to occupy my time but after last weekend, I just can’t stop thinking about…
… all of the new tap numbers I want to choreograph!
(Whoops! Did you think I was talking about Date #7 up there? My bad…)
Yesterday marked both the end of the Philly Tap Challenge and this year’s student recitals. Now I have a huge, gaping hole in my life (and a huge, gaping hole in my right foot thanks to the duet I performed on Saturday night, but the less said about that the better).
I have a whopping one day off until the start of the summer semester and Nationals begin next month. (“Nationals” for those of you unfamiliar with dance competition terminology represent the culmination of the competition season. Over the course of the next month I’ll have students competing up and down the east coast from Maryland to Massachusetts… and in my infinite wisdom I’ve decided to direct a 40-student production number next year.)
But let’s get back to Date #7, shall we? We haven’t actually spoken since he left Philadelphia exactly one week ago. I sent him a text last night and when he took a full 25 minutes to respond, I did what any sane, sleep-deprived, rationally romantic individual might do: I plopped down on the couch, pulled up “Say Yes to the Dress” on Netflix and spent the next hour checking my phone at 90-second intervals.
I’m so glad that this year-long dating experiment has helped me to mature…
Anyway, click here for the full scoop on Saturday’s performance, the latest Fringe drama and an awesome post-performance picture of my foot. (Actually give me about 30 minutes… I still have to write said “full scoop” so check back at 9:30 EST.)
