"Dance Your Pants Off!" - Richard Simmons

If anyone knows me, they know I like to dance. If anyone reads my About Me, they know I like to dance. So what would one do with a liking for dance? I was faced with this problem upon entering USU, as I thought my dancing days were over! In my pondering, I thought, "What Would Richard Do?"
I'll tell you what Richard would do. He would tell me to calm down, smile, and just be my beautiful self. He would find a solution. He would look up information on the internet. He wouldn't have found anything on the internet, because Tracie didn't either. Apparently, the dance community at USU doesn't know we have that resource available, but that's ok! They do utilize the poster system! And the second I saw one on Friday, I just knew what I would have to do, which is what Richard would have done. Put on my Be Happy shirt and my spandex (not quite as short as Richard's), and got ready to dance my pants off. 76 other girls had the same idea! Apparently Richard's kind of promiscuous, lending-ideas-wise. But that's ok! Because I MADE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Full Circle is USU's contemporary dance company, and 13 of the 76 made it, including me! It was crazy intense, five hours long! But two dances, one cut, many stressful call backs (one of which I FORGOT, let me repeat, FORGOT half of one of the dances and legitimately laughed out loud as I pranced about trying to be professional - SOD!), they called my number, 62!!! I would have pictures, but my camera sadly died. But anyways! I'm pretty stoked! It's a great company, and we're doing tons of shows and our main concert is in April! Pretty much, college has once again given me the best case scenario!! I sure do love Logan. :)
P.S. my roommates are seriously the best! Look how nice and amazing they are! They got me chocolate and balloons. I love them!

Chocolate AND balloons? You really did score in the roommate department. Lucky girl. Oh, and good job on the dance thing. That's great. No, really, I'm super excited for you! (Ask Kat about Ms. Sheya telling you something was funny)

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is needed to get set up? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost
a pretty penny? I'm not very web smart so I'm not 100% sure. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Cheers
