Things I Have an Unhealthy Addiction To

July 20, 2008

1. So You Think You Can Dance. I love this show far more than I should. I know I’ve mentioned it before, but let me just share my favorite moment so far. It features Chelsie, a ballroom dancer, and Mark, a contemporary dancer doing a lyrical hip hop routine to Bleeding Love.

I love them so much it hurts.

2. My family’s hometown. I can’t help it. It may be Super Conservative Farmtown, USA where the locals hit up WalMart for a good time… but my family is there. However, we stay out of the town at our little lake and drink Landshark beer on our pontoon. But there’s a new movie coming out, American Teen, which was filmed at the high school there. It was the high school my parents attended, as well as all of my aunts and uncles on both sides of the family, and a good chunk of my cousins. It was the high school I visited for football games, where I competed in Quiz Bowl, where I saw my cousins graduate. And now there’s a movie? Bizarre.

3. The other counselors. I love these people. We make a fantastic family of 13. I love learning their stories, seeing their talents, having lunch with them, sitting up late with them, depending on them. The support system I’ve had at camp is what has made the past two weeks and upcoming final week worthwhile.

4. Obsessing about moving. The Beau Named Joe has a start date- Aug 11… which means the Big Move is coming oh so soon… which means we need to find an apartment to which we can make the Big Move. Quickly quickly.

5. Performing. Shit, I’d almost forgotten how much I love an audience. Thank you, Fine Arts Camp, for rekindling that unhealthy addiction. Let’s hope the new ‘burb has a civic theatre…

    That was totally my favorite routine on the show as well! Tabitha and Napoleon are just amazing at everything they do. I also loved the number from the first week of the actual show (not auditions) that they choreographed that Katee and Joshua did to “No Air.”

    1) That dance was amazing. You may have convinced me to watch SYTYCD.
    2) It is SO COOL that American Teen was filmed in your family’s town. Now I can pretend to be connected to the film! hah
    3) The staff is one of the best parts of camp. I miss my camp buds a ridiculous amount.
    4) You work at a Fine Arts Camp? That is super cool. Yay Theater!

    Isn’t camp the best? I loved my fellow counselors SO much and relearned my love of having an audience.

    Yay for the big move, too!

    This may or may not be the third time I’ve visited your blog today just to re-watch that first youtube clip.

    Just thought you would know why I keep creeping over here…

    Seriously? I want to dance like that.
