competition, sunday, i came 5th out of 6 in ballroom, and didn't make the finals in latin
idk. i feel like i've done terrible though, there are a ton of other people who didn't even make the finals in ballroom, so i guess i should be lucky that i even placed anywhere.
but basically the whole weekend was pretty gross, started off great, really excited on saturday night, didn't care that my tan had gone streaky and really dark on my knees and that my sister had completely missed a section of my back, i just wanted to be on the floor and dancing.
that was until the music that was playing was ridiculous, like nothing about it was 'ballroom' like when you think of ballroom, you think of nice slow romanitic waltz and not a rihanna song slowed down. it doesn't have the same effect at all.
so i couldn't find the timing in the music, i had literally all of 5 minutes to warm up, we only had 30 minutes between doors opening, finding our seats, getting into our dresses and warming up. had no practice on the floor, the floor was sticky and the whole dance just felt completely wrong.

and what makes it even worse is that i'm feeling so crap, and pretty much all of the other kids from our dance school made their finals, i've beaten almost every single person i danced against (that were in the competition with me yesterday) twice over, but something just didn't click this time. i'm apparantly 'technically, 5th in the country for my age group and level, but idk. i wanted to be 1st. and i feel crap aswell for feeling so ungrateful, and i feel crap because i just wanted to go home all weekend.

and i just sort of want to curl into a ball and cry, but i have an exam tomorrow that i haven't revised for, and i'm going to fail that, a bird did his business on my dress bag on the way home (GOD DAMN WHY NOT ON THE WAY THERE SO IT WOULD HAVE BEEN GOOD LUCK?!)
so yea. sucky weekend really.

    5th is great Holly! I think you just need a bath, a massive hug and some sleep and you'll feel better. *virtual hug* in the meantime

    Hope your exam goes well xxx
