“Some people don’t realize what they have until it’s gone, but that does not always mean they are supposed to get it back.”

6:30 am
On the island
Alongside the rubbish
After work
After a little too much alcohol
I was pissed
And it was fucking pissing it down
Yes I went home in that .

I'm not sure which is worse:
Intense feeling, or the absence of it.

And then it just hits you. It has all come to an end. It's that very moment when you realize that you have spent hours in a studio tuning your body, sacrificed a "normal" life and have been put through a ton of crippling anxiety and pressure just for a few minutes on stage and a few seconds of applause. It's just one of those feelings you can't quite wrap your head around but your conscious convinces you that you have to accept as true. It has been a crazy crazy crazy year. Crazy exhausting, crazy inspirational, crazy painful, crazy challenging physically and above all crazy challenging mentally. Honestly the toughest part (for me) of this past year was learning to deal with the mental stress, which was present until the very very last minute. All emotions are heightened once you are involved in something that truly matters to you. Your whole reality surrounding the thing that you live for is substantially more "vivid" compared to any other aspect of your life. I have never felt more insecure, stressed, astounded, but yet alive and accomplished in my life. And by "accomplished" I do not mean that I have "made it". I may never will. I have miles of improvement to make surrounding this area. "I don't know what to do. I don't know what I can do. I don't know what I want to do. I'm done with school. Right now I'm nothing. Not a school student, maybe not even a potential uni student. Where do I go from here? Nothing makes sense. What do I do? How do I cope with this? How do I handle this? I feel useless and hopeless. I feel like I've wasted a year of my life. It all sucks so much. When does this stop? When do I find out what I end up as?" I wrote that a year ago. I felt like the world had come to end. I knew it hadn't, but I felt so confused and so hopeless. I had no idea what to do with my life and I had absolutely no idea what my next step was. I am so grateful now for how things turned out. Yes, there were tons of times when I thought to myself "I am so done with this" and felt so close to giving up. But I wouldn't change my first year at the Greek National Opera for the world. Whether I get another year at this school, I don't know. The whole world of dance is

We were
Just friends
That spoke like lovers
And that seemed to be enough for
Two teenagers who were scared to love one
