A story to tell

I know, I know, it's been weeks and my absence here in the blogsphere was a clear violation of my new year's resolution (to blog at least once a week). Aside from school kasi, I've been very busy teaching dance. Btw, this ain't one of my usual posts na seryoso, matalinhaga and stuff.

If you're a medtech student, you can definitely relate. There's this annual event where MT students gather for uhh pageant, seminar, singing and talent competitions (like a HS intramurals).

What pressured me the most was the fact that me and my team were informed about the dance contest 5 days before the event! I was like WTF?? 4 DAYS TO REHEARSE? MOTHER OF GOD (very 9gag lang).

Fuck! Our Lady of Fatima University (I know a couple of dancers from there) FEU MORAYTA (okay, mamamatay na ko, magaling lang tao don) I visited kasi the website where the list of contestants were shown, siyempre I had to check out the competition. If I'm not mistaken there were at least 15 contenders pero yung fatima and feu ang naretain ng memory ko, prolly because they're the ones na alam kong magaling talaga.

Here are my girls:

day 1

day 4

day 5, pizza muna habang hinihintay magstart ang competition

and then, after 2 hours of waiting, nakasayaw na sila.. and ang result..


sorry pero proud na proud lang ako. I mean, 2nd place in 4 days?? grabe! Ang mas grabe pa eh na cut yung music namin, the incompetent sound guy thought that I was kidding when I said "hihinto talaga yung music niyan sa bandang dulo".

Kung babalikan yung day 1 ng practice, wala silang SWAGUUH walang confidence tapos on the competition day mapapanuod mo sila na hinihiyawan ng mga tao, character kung character sa stage GAWD!! Sinong hindi magiging proud diba?

Being a choreographer really isn't all about the money. Watching your kids perform on stage and realizing that somehow you've been a significant part of their growth is priceless.

Here's the video pala. Thanks for reading folks! :)
