“what i do is that i actually like the particular topic i’m studying
and then i try to fathom what they’re actually talking about and see the different outcomes of a particular function of an event
then i go like ‘WOW, DAMN. now what happens if THIS happens instead of THAT’
that way, i cover everything i have to study
if you don’t take an interest in what you do, you can still do well, but it’ll be very one sided babe
it’s like dancing, you mix and match your moves right? There has to be some lucidity right?
you can’t go to a windmill from just standing there and not doing something like a toprock or something
you can’t jump far without running
similarly, you’ve gotta be amazedddd of what you’re studying babe”
This is insane! B-girl Spinderella head spinning on a can.
First of all, kicking myself for waiting this long to go. 6 months into uni. I missed out on 6 whole months of inspiration.
Secondly, kicking myself for being a wimp. For caring what people think and not stepping into the circle unless I’m called out by someone. I could learn so much more if I did.
Third of all, kicking myself for not throwing down the best moves I have when I AM in the circle. My mind goes blank and the only thing I can do is groove and a couple of legit moves at best. People are lovely, they still cheer because as a beginner I’ve taken the massive step of even stepping foot in the circle, but I just don’t feel good enough after. I don’t feel that rush of euphoria you feel when you’ve shown your worth on the dance floor. I feel some, but not all, compromised because I know I’ve held back.
It’s not too late though, and I’ve got 2 odd years left here, and plan to make the utmost use of it. Dogma will be a regular thing, it’s so good it’s not like a chore to go. I will learn learn learn watching the pros as they throw down their sickest material in breaking, house, popping, waacking, locking, and just hip hop. And I will get better as a dancer.
Here’s to dancing in my room and being brave enough to step foot in the circle 🍸
there is nothing in the world i like doing more than dancing.
whether it’s in a class, in my room, in a club, in a cypher, on a stage, on the streets, whereverrrrrrrrrr.
except maybe travelling, and seeing places, and meeting people, and having new experiences. breathing new air, eating new food, smiling at new faces, learning new tongues.
these are the only two things I ever want to do - but i need money to fund them.
so god, please PLEASE make me love being a lawyer too.
these exams need to be mafucking nailed.
