The first full week of Peter Pan rehearsals has come and gone, leaving a trail of battered pointe shoes and swollen feet in its wake. Last Friday I strapped on the satin death traps and didn’t stop once. I’m hurting all over, and we’ve only learned Act I. Woof.
Clearly demonstrated by my lack of activity here on the blog, I’ve been pretty swamped with rehearsals and PT and getting over a cold and sewing pointe shoes and reading for my new online Physiology course and…trying to stay sane? Am I the only one who has a hard time separating studio life and real life? Is it hard for anyone else to transition from work time to playtime? Sometimes I forget that the weekend is not only a time to rest and recuperate my body, but also a chance to see friends, drink wine and cheat the diet (if we’re getting specific ;). I’m hoping to do a better job of balancing all that out next weekend…although I’ve heard rumors that a 6-day work week is approaching tomorrow…wish me luck!
