New Colour Scheme

Hey Everyone,

Just a quick word from me .....

Well, as you may remember, recently I put a poll up saying 'This blog should change it's "look"'. The answers you could choose from were 'yes,' or 'no.'

The poll closed the other day. I can't remember the exact statistics, but it was something like 80% said it SHOULD change its look.

Since I want you to enjoy this blog as much as possible, I have decided to do as you suggested and change its look.
As you may have noticed, I set up another poll today saying asking what colour scheme you would like this blog to be.

Please do vote on this poll and tell me what colour scheme you would like. I will make my blog the colour that gets the most votes.

Thanks a lot, everyone :)

Concert/Exam Results

Hi Everyone,

OK, so I feel REALLY terrible for not updating in, like, ever. I could spent the whole post apologizing for it, but let's just get on with it, hey?

Last Friday my dance school had their first Christmas Concert for 2011. They had another two on Saturday (afternoon and evening.) I was, obviously, involved in all of them.
There wasn't a theme to the concert, it was just a whole lot of random dances put together.

In fact, our dance was the only classical one in the whole concert!

I think that I did a really good job of the dance on Friday night and Saturday afternoon, but unfortunately, on the night that my parents came and watched, I TOTALLY stuffed it up.
Thankfully they didn't really, well, notice. They said they enjoyed my dance and thought I was very graceful.
My Grandma said that she thought my arms were 'very nice.' ha ha ha. Do you remember how when I started at this dance school my arms weren't too crash hot? Well, thankfully that's all fixed now.

The concert was fun, although it got REALLY REALLY REALLY boring backstage. Most people had about four to six dances. Because we only moved to this city half way through the year, I was too late to join any concert classes.
Well, I did join one, but they had only started their concert dance just before I arrived - that's why I was able to join them.

However, I LOVED the part that I was on stage for.

I'm sorry I didn't take a picture of my costume. If you want to know the honest reason why, it was because I couldn't find my camera. I can't take a picture of it now (I found my camera yesterday), since I had to hand it back to the dance school last weekend.

My costume was a purple tutu with fake diamonds stuck in a 'V' shape on the top of the leotard. I had a little tiara to wear in my hair, plus pink stocking, pointe shoes etc.

There were five girls in my group; I think it would have looked great from the audience. I mean, all the purple.

Alright, onto something else now .....

Today at about 10 O'clock in the morning, I think it was, my exam results arrived.


OK, so I'll be upfront about it and tell you that I got a Pass. I know it isn't the best mark you can get, but I'm happy. I mean, as you could probably tell from the post I did after the exam, it really didn't go the way I was hoping.
I mean, the floor stuffed everything up and I wasn't feeling too great that day, either. Plus, I had just been sitting in a car for three and a half hours.

I really thought that I would fail, but it was OK. I passed.
I'll have to do a post explaining the different marks you can get and all that another day.

It's almost dinner time, I think, so I'd better get going and set the table. I'll do a post on Monday again.

Thanks for reading/commenting!
