I can't get that song from Legally Blonde: The Musical out of my head because I've been feeling like Elle lately. There were some losses, but I had too much good news to really mourn them. First, one of my Tweets got read out loud on the Dew Tour livestream. If this isn't a sign that reviving To the Power of X (as well as staying in that weekend to live Tweet) was a good idea, then I don't know what is. I am a little mortified by the fact that I made a really bold statement for a non-snowboarder, but that just means I have to work hard to make sure I'm not just all talk.
Speaking of To the Power of X, I recently shared my pictures from Boneless One 3. It was the first time I tried action sports photography, and I think it went pretty well. I'm in love with some of the shots and can't stop sharing them.
The other awesome piece of news is that I got in the Dallas Burlesque Festival! If you haven't been keeping up with my nearly-naked adventures, I decided to start working on my first solo routine in the summer. I wound up taking a class to help out with putting everything together, and at the end of it, Matt Walker filmed it. My teacher, The Dirty Blonde, convinced me to submit to the DBF, and I did. Best decision ever! I think for the first time in my life, I'm super proud of what I've done. This isn't luck or some form of favoritism; it's all my hard work.
Everything's been going spectacularly well although there hasn't been the same kind of excitement for my writing career. I know I had to push something aside. Sadly I just don't have the time, and I keep getting a vibe about not working on personal stuff during my day job even if I'm done with everything. However, I still am contributing to the Resonance Media sites (my latest post is over at Drama-MAX), and my friend has invited me to join Rogue Group Writing. I'm trying to think of what to contribute that would be different that the poems and photos I share here and on facebook. Once I figure that out, I'll start posting. Even with this road bump, I'm pretty happy with how 2013 has turned out.
