I have my dance recital today.

My studio's recital policy is annoying. My studio is huge and crowded so everything is expensive. Our costumes cost $88 each, recital tickets cost like $18 dollars and you don't even get to watch any recitals unless you buy a ticket. Our studio has six recitals, but each class only performs once.  So I know nothing of this "multiple performance per class" business.

But even if you choose to opt out of the recitals, you're pretty much screwed because we work on the recital routine for several months beforehand and you'll be bored the whole class. And you can't drop out of the classes because most classes fill up and if you drop out there's a good chance you won't be getting back in.

Ergh.I love performing in the recitals though. Which is kind of the point I guess. Wish me luck.

@Abby-Everyone in your studio wears tights all the time? Ooh.


  1. Good luck Amaranthine!!!!!! :D you'll do great! :D

    I love recital time too. ;) I always have a blast. :D

  2. Yeah, our studio is the same way about that. I just sneak in and watch anyway. haha.

    Our studio wears tights all the time, I couldn't imagine dancing on stage without tights. I'd feel awkward and exposed.
    Good Luck!

  3. LOL! YOu have a recital today and I have two performances! LOLZ!

    You'll do great honey :D

    ps-- actually, sometimes the little girls wear socks instead of tights, but our leotards are really good- like, for being a leotard they're pretty modest without being frumpy, and our ballet people don't stick little kids into bikinis and all that bare midriff ickiness :P But anyway, yeah.
    That sounded kind of harsh, didn't it? I'm sorry, I meant no harm......

    What kind of dance is it that you're doing? Oh wait..... you blogged about it before, didn't you? (OO)

  4. Good luck at your recital! You'll do fantastic!!

    At our studio, our costumes are built into our tuition, so we don't have to buy them separately. Only tights are purchased separately. And yeah tickets are mad expensive, like $17 for us.

    Sometimes it can be nice only being in one show. I was in four. It was crazy!

  5. Good luck Amaranthine! Have fun!

my fangirl obsessions go in cycles...this week, it's totally Heroes of Olympus/Percy Jackson(again)

There's this amazing artist on deviantart...burdge-bug...who does AMAZING Percy Jackson, Hunger Games, Harry Potter, Maximum Ride, and even HOWL'S MOVING CASTLE fanart. Now, we need to get her to read Artemis Fowl...XD.

Anyways, here are some of my favorites of hers.

I kind of want to pull a Ms. Black and blast Jason right off the tapestry. There's some speculation to whether or not Annabeth will be on the Argo II. I kind of don't want her to be, so Nico can join instead. Then again, if Nico is already in Rome(as speculated at the end of Neptune) there's still room.  GAH RR WHY MUST YOU TORMENT US SO

love this scene...Senatus Populusque Romanus FTW.

Which do you think is cooler? Camp Half Blood or Camp Jupiter? Camp Jupiter definitely has a more efficient way of doing things(separating by cohort instead of parentage, sending large groups instead o…

Ciel Phantomhive vs. Artemis Fowl

Don't laugh. XD
The similarities between the two characters are so distinct and obvious that comparison is inevitable for anyone who's read/watched both series. I seriously thought when I first noticed Black Butler(more popularly referred to as Kuroshitsuji) that it was literally an anime adaption of Artemis Fowl.  Other people have read Artemis Fowl and thought "CIEL HAS A CLONE??!?"
So I thought I'd outline some of the differences and analyze who would win. XD
Appearance:  This is the first similarity, and one of the most major, because if they didn't look so darn alike I don't think the comparison would have been as striking. The above picture of Artemis is a fanart, because there aren't really any good pictures of Artemis, and the manga style makes it more obvious. They are both from the British Isles and have black hair and blue eyes. Both of them lose/change/switch an eye resulting in two different colors. 
Circumstance: They both s…

Howl's Moving Castle book analysis

“I feel ill. I'm going to bed, where I may die.”
― Howl, upon having a cold. I've decided to call them "book analysis" because they're not really reviews that tell you how much I liked the book, rather,  me taking the book apart and looking at different aspects of it for my own entertainment. Read on. Also, read Howl's Moving Castle.

This is the original cover of Howl's Moving Castle and I have got to say it is the UGLIEST thing I have ever seen. I like the new one much better.


First of all, I should point out that Howl's Moving Castle is a children's book. However, I like to hold all books I read to the same standard, after all, they're written by adults.

I had biased expectations of Howl's Moving Castle from the start, because I kept hearing from several sources how amazing, how fantastic, how hilarious and how romantic the book was, and hearing the perfectly gorgeous soundtrack by Joe Hizazi(something or other.)

Howl's Movi…
