I'm Really Upset!

Hi :(

At the moment I am really upset and angry at myself. You see - my teacher phoned me today and said, "Something arrived in the post for you today."

It was my results.

As you have probably guessed they weren't very good, at all. Sigh.
My teacher didn't' actually tell me how many points I got, she just said that I have got "Brilliant," marks.
I had got a merit.
I was really hoping for a distinction. I have never not got a distinction before (apart from this time.)

When I got off the phone, I just burst into tears. Mom and Dad both said that it didn't matter, there was always my intermediate exam next year, and after all, it wasn't like I hadn't passed.

Today at ballet, I will find out how many points I actually got. All I know is that they will be below 75.

:( - that's how I feel!

All New - Intermediate

Hello again everyone!

Sorry for not updating for ages, I have been quite busy and forgetful.

Since my exam (which I still have not found out the results) we have been working of intermediate.
Because we had already done a little bit of it, it wasn't toooo hard to to remember. Though it is still new. I think that I have almost mastered all of the barre, but there are still a few things I am not sure about.

There are lots of new terms, which I had never heard of before, so that can be really confusing sometimes. Luckily I am starting to remember some of them.

One thing that I am super hopeless at are the pirouettes. The single ones are not that hard, but the double ones - I HAVE NOT IDEA HOW I WILL EVER BE ABLE TO DO ONE! Sigh

However, it's good to be able to have new music and exercises to do. I was starting to get very bored or intermediate foundation by the end.

Distinction ??? - You Can Now Vote!

Hi Everyone,

I have set up a poll, so that you can vote weather you think I will get a distinction from my ballet exam or not.
(I won't be offended if you think that I will not - and anyway, I won't know who said yes or no.)

It is to the right of the page, just click what you think!

Thanks for voting (!!!)
