based on who came today… it seems like not a lot of people don’t really wanna do the spring rally… DM is kinda slackin on a lot of things lately. nobody has been notifying each other of what’s up with everybody even when i called for mandatory practices. i understand some people’s exceptions such as cyber high and sprained ankles, busy lives, and other kinds of dilemmas, but the rest makes me question “do you really wanna dance? or do you wanna just tell me you wanna dance?” but that’s just what i think in my head if there is no other exception. i’ll always understand. i’m actually really thankful for the people who have been making the practices. if anything, i’ll work with a small unit instead of a huge 27+ people horde of people. so we’ll see… i’m just down to make this show come to life. gonna post a reflection of this year soon… i have so much to say about this year.
things have been going great with DM now that i think about it. were being inspired by our own experiences. i feel it. thing is… i feel like i think too much and say so much :) but i definitely feel what makes everything worth it is all the built relationships and how much we earned. we did such a good job last show. i guess i was kinda upset about my suspenders dilemma during the 2NE1 piece of the talent show… its whatever though :) made it fun, worked with it, but i didnt go full out as much. and i miss sharing the stage with niko. hopefully next time niko, we can choreograph together bro. we gotta do it one day. anyway… can’t wait for what i have in store for DM this coming week. way different feel… better understanding. its gonna be crazy when we come back. i love you DM. sorry about my last post. i feel that spark slowly coming back

this wednesday? man, i can’t believe it’s been at least a year of me teaching this team. at first, i considered this as training for me to get better as a teacher and i thought i would stay only for a little bit. little did know, i fell into the habit and grew the passion and love to teach my craft to these people. we eventually grew more as a family under my training. i know in the long run, i had to learn that it wasn’t just about all my pieces. and i had to see each and almost everyone’s perspective of things of their part in the group. honestly, this has been better than my time in Marching Band and SBYG. i feel that DM for me has made me feel more like a leader, and i’ve learned how to get everyone else involved. lately, its just some people’s cooperation and activeness in DM is kinda falling short. i understand though, we all have our own lives to live, and sometimes making time for dance is one of the most difficult things to do, especially if you’re in high school. but for some certain people, its either they dont really like how my class goes, or i’m too lenient as a teacher myself. but its just how i role. through time, i know as a teacher i can change. other than that….
just going through all the great times together. BHM 2011, open house, talent show, spring rally 2011, PID, fall rally 2011, ACHS, UPular, Tinikling, Christmas Show at OLR….
and even that one dilemma after ACHS… man… i’ve learned so much.
i know it seems like i’m making it sound like the final days of DM, hehe… but the reality is… THIS YEAR ISN’T OVER JUST YET. BHM 2012 is gonna be a big one this year. talent show 2012. spring rally 2012. possibly cinco de mayo. GSA performance. man…. so much this semester in such little time…. its going down. LETS MAKE IT HAPPEN DM. show this school who works hard
