Had a Great Weekend

I feel so much better. The past few weeks have been incredibly stressful. Preparing for our second competition really strained my relationship with my dance partner / girlfriend. We put a lot of work into our dancing, and it paid off. We danced in two categories, and placed second in both. We were a bit disappointed with one, because we expected to do better.

But the other couple was just more experienced than we were, and we were really stressed out (pre-competition jitters), due to our trying to remember a new routine, and working with a new instructor.

We were quite pleasantly surprised to place second in Pre-Bronze Latin though. We didn't expect to do all that well, but we were a bit more relaxed for that event, and I think it showed.

I scanned the medals just because I'm damned proud of how we did :) Next time though, I want to bring home a trophy! :D We went to Nanaimo for the weekend for this competition, the Island Fantasy Ball. It was a lot of fun, because we got to hang out with all of our friends on the ferry ride over to the island, as well as before and after our events.

Hopefully I'll have pictures of the event later.

Congrats man I feel you.
My hockey team and I had our cup final on Saturday. We lost and came in second. It's respectable since the other team has loads more experience and have been playing together since they were little kids.
But you cant help thinking 'what if'.

I had a good weekend as well, after all. Here's to that! :drink:

Wow. Way to go. I'd love to be able to dance...any type of dance.

On a sports related note, my team's winless season recently ended, with my team at the bottom of the region because of a tough section. I hate beating playoff teams in tournements then being unable to win a section match. Every team in my section is good enough for the playoffs, just we all got the shaft with such difficult competition.

I have a question. When did you start dancing and where did you learn or who did you learn from?

I'm heading in to senior week events at school before I graduate on Sunday.

Who wants to place bets on whether or not I'm drunk when you read this?

Out of all the pictures I've seen, I've found one that is postable :p

The trophies aren't mine :p

My partner and I are on the outside, and our friends are on the inside. They won both categories, we came in second to them :) Next time Gadget, NEXT TIME!
