Couldn’t have asked for a better end to my life in New York before going back to California tomorrow for hip surgery. The ballerina I admire beyond belief. @mistyonpointe Thank you for sharing your story, dancing, and kindness! Sorry I was so flustered and awestruck. #rolemodel #idol
Sunday’s are my favorite day of the week and I’m already counting down the days until the next one. #happy #newyorklife
I just witnessed one of the most spectacular performances. Polina Semionova and Marcelo Gomes. Swan Lake. ABT. #100happydays
Today I chopped off and donated 13 inches of my hair! Been waiting years to do this! #100happydays #day40? And my shirt has ballerinas on it 💇
A couple of things: ballet related
I met Polina Semionova a few days ago and she was so nice and sweet and asked me questions :)
I just got a ticket to see her dance Swan Lake with David Hallberg in a few weeks! :O
I have tickets to see Natalia Osipova perform 3 times in November!!!!!!
Misty Copeland has to be one of the most admirable human beings on the planet. I have so much respect for her and can’t wait to keep watching her grow as a dancer. She is fierce and strong, kind and humble, and such a role model for dancers everywhere. I’m currently reading her memoir. Her journey into ballet is remarkable and inspiring.

This made me teary-eyed. Living an ordinary life is wonderful!
This is the message in my favorite Broadway musical, Pippin. Since first watching the show a month or so ago, I have been enthralled with the idea of enjoying the “simple joys” in life, letting go of that desire to be part of “the one perfect act”, and living a life that is “extra ordinary.”
Just because someone’s parents are together, someone has a nice house, has nice clothes, isn’t poor, eats every day and has a loving family doesn’t mean they can’t be depressed, have anxiety, an eating disorder, self harm issues, or any other problem.
The world NEEDS to know this
So tempted to buy a stub hub ticket for Governor’s Ball today so I can see Vampire Weekend.
But I don’t have a lot of money,
And I feel like $100+ would be better spent on classes or something
