New Home, New Life, New Obsession

I’m finally all moved in and settled into my new apartment, and it’s absolutely beautiful. The walls are painted a peaceful shade of yellow and green. My furniture consists of the lushest and most comfortable pieces that I could find, and returning home after a dissatisfying day of work just makes my daily struggles seem worth it. It’s taken a lot of work, but my new place is really starting to feel like a home, but regardless of all the homey feelings that I feel when I walk through the door, I still get a little lonely. It’s my first time living alone without family, without roommates. Don’t get me wrong I love my solitude and nothing gives me more joy that getting home from work early and just enjoying the silence of an empty house. However, there is a big difference in momentarily being home alone, and knowing that you will always be home alone.

To remedy this loneliness problem, I’m giving myself a new project. I know that I should be writing, but I’m afraid that writing will make me feel even more secluded than I already am, living solely in my head and not in the real world. Instead, I’ve decided to take on a new dancing project where at least all my solitary practices at home get to be applied in real life every weekend.

I’m already an expert follower when it comes to salsa, but I know little of how to lead or to create new moves. My goal for the rest of this year is to become an expert lead and choreograph some fantastic new moves that would have people trying to figure them out for years to come. I want to create a new style of salsa, a type of sexy girl on girl thing, where each girl goes back and forth between being the leader and being the follower. In order to do this, I’m going to have to figure out how to translate my choreography skills from the college stage and to the salsa nightclub.

I’m really enjoying this new project so far because there is never a dull moment anymore. Even just sitting in my chair at work becomes an opportunity to think about turning methods or an interesting dip positions. We’ll see how long this new obsession lasts and don’t be surprised if the next time I see you that I try some of my new moves out on you.
