In my previous post, I talked about my first day back in the studio since Covid started (If you haven't seen it, check it out!). In that post I talked about my experience, including the difficulties of returning to the studio after so much time off.

In my last post, I wrote about my audition for the Butler University Jacobs School of Arts Dance program. This was the first of many college auditions I will be going through this school year and, with that, my first rejection.
