Last weekend the circus school I go to had a fundraising performance night. There were some beautiful and some spectacular acts, some were both. Mine was neither. I half fell out of a trick and managed to get tangled. While I got myself untangled relatively quickly, having to do that in front of nearly 200 audience members wasn’t my ideal situation. Once I got untangled I don’t think I did the rest of the routine well at all either.

My boyfriend and a friend of his were there and they loved it, but I think the longer I do aerials classes the more my expectations of myself grow but naturally your skills plateau a bit. Oh well. I’m determined to do the routine properly, even if it’s just for myself. I love the song and think the routine (when done properly) is a good one.
