Last Week of April

It’s the last week of April.  This month has been so busy; I haven’t had time to write.  Since Easter, I stepped outside of my comfort zone and went to an open call dance audition for the Oklahoma Contemporary Dance Festival; my siblings and I got all dressed up to take family pictures; we celebrated my big sister, Ashley’s, 25th birthday; I had a band competition and went to an amusement park with my bandmates; and today I went to the Arts Festival to see the girls from my former dance studio perform.  273 more words
