Happy Sunday everyone! I hope your weekend was a blast, as mine was! Last night I went to see Giselle at the BOSTON BALLET with my gal Carly! Let me tell you it was simply beautiful and I loved it!
Well there is actually a funny story to go along with this ;) So the show didn't start until 8pm so we left campus around 6:30, which was plenty of time because it only takes less than an hour to get to Boston from our school, so we were all set! We were talking, laughing, and rocking to jams on the radio until we got completely LOST! When I mean LOST...I mean LOST. We went through Boston and we were doing well but then her GPS (so tapped as Carly would say!) took us to a really bad section of Boston and to a totally different Washington Street than what we were really looking for!
So the time got closer and closer to 8pm and we were still in the car looking for the Boston Opera House. But after asking several people, using the GPS and blackberrys, and 45 minutes late to the show, we finally arrived at the Boston Ballet at the Opera House!
When we got in we missed the whole first act and we only got to see the second half :( Carly was really upset because it is her favorite ballet ever! But at least we got there and we got to watch the whole second act. The ballet was simply beautiful and I am so happy Carly invited me to go with her!
We got back to school a little bit before 10! The car ride home seemed so quick because we DID NOT get lost. It took us a little less than a hour (which is how long it should take!) Right when I walked in my dorm room I went right under my blankets in my bed and layed down for a bit before prac at 11. I had a serving of nuts and a Boost right before practice for some extra energy. I definitely needed this snack before practice because I didn't have any grains for breakfast and I was kind of dragging because I was a bit hungry. The snack was a smart decision right before practice. It gave me energy and kept me fueled through practice.
A shower was sooo needed right after practice. I came right back to my room to shower, it felt so nice. Then I enjoyed myself to a nice lunch, a turkey whole wheat wrap with swiss cheese, lettuce, and tomatoes, pretzels, and an apple with milk.
