Tutus, Tunics, and Toys

Posted on the 19 November 2015 by Ballerinablogger

Hello, friends!

I know, I've been skimping on the posts the last couple weeks. We all know what happens when mid-November hits. As our bodies creep into hibernation mode, clinging to the warmth of our sheets as the alarm blares, the outside world seems to plow forward, gaining speed every second.
Quizzes, papers, exams, pointe shoes, rehearsals, classes,  classes, and more classes, so much to do and no time for all of it. Something always takes the shaft and I'm determined to not let that be this. I feel like a master juggler at this moment with a human resources textbook under my elbows, my blog at my fingertips, and a web design class surrounding me... Is multitasking a skill I can plug into my resume? I'd say yes. This isn't distraction, mind you, it's time management... right?
My stockpile of Nutcracker goodies is growing and Saturday is load-out day. For those of you that may not know, load-out day is the magical Saturday when we do our last run-through of The Nutcracker at our small in-house theater in Falmouth, Maine, pack up the storage room full of tutus, tunics, and toys into a few loading trucks, and move it all into Merrill Auditorium on Monday.
This doesn't exclude the dancers! We pack up our dressing rooms and relocate to Portland. It's a bustling and joyous day, so please stay tuned to hear all about it.
Hoping everyone is sipping that frothy cup of holiday cheer and is just as excited for the approaching time of utter stress, exhaustion, and bliss as I am.

Oh! And lastly, how amazing are these customized Bella t-shirts courtesy of MSB's artistic director? I'm swooning.
