I am 25 years old and have been dancing for 21 years in the mid-atlantic region. I stopped for a few years in college, but before I stopped, I had reached championship level.

So now I find myself in the awkward position of coming back into a level of competition where no one else stopped dancing. My stamina is down, my turnout... well, that was never that great to begin with. So I have a lot of work cut out for me.

Let the journey begin.

So today was my first day of track and I happened to wear a feis Tshirt. We split into groups and my group happened to be a bunch of football players.. One of them read my shirt and said
“Dance isn’t a sport!”
So instead of responding I first
Pulled back my shoulders
And then
I out ran all of them.

Yasssss

F*ck yeah

I am going to my prom soon and i want my skin to look good but i have few spots. what would you suggest to do or use to fully cover them up. ( not something too expensive if possible) thanks x

nonelikerae:

Products depend on your skin type darlin!
Really focus more on skin care and getting rid of the acne than covering it. People always forget to look after their skin, cleanse tone and moisturise and use things like the witch spot treatment gel and face masks and what not.

Then with makeup on the day, make sure to prime your face to keep the makeup from moving
For red spots, cover with a green concealer. Tap on to the area effected then apply your foundation over this.
For other areas and extra coverage; pat on a concealer of the same skin tone over any acne and set with a loose powder.
I’m not really listing products Hun because with foundation and stuff it depends on your skin type!

Go to a place that sells lots of brands of cleanser like Ulta or Sephora, and ask for someone who knows skin. They’ll ask you what your problem spots are and what type of skin you have (oily, dry, or mixes), and then they should be able to recommend a product line for you.

For example, they recommended that I use the Purity cleanser and the Miracle in a Jar moisturizer, and the Clear Days Ahead spot treatment (all from the Philosophy line). I have had awful acne on my face, shoulders and chest since I hit puberty (I have a mixes skin type that’s really unstable) and this has finally cleared it up!

So apparently in my sister’s class, there was a trans girl that had been on the cheerleading squad for a while. When she came out, the other girls on the squad made the agreement that whatever boy made fun of her would never get a date. And if you think that’s not the most metal girl alliance ever, you can sit down.

Wow, 500 notes

Girls protecting girls.

Phenomenal. This is the way the world should work.

what are those things where you wrap your feet around each other while jumping? cause i have always called them birdies but they are not apparently birdies to everyone else

The…

We call them dee-dee-dums but I’ve also heard lots of people call them butterflies.

We call them after their ballet name- entrechat (but we pronounced it “oh-deh-shay”)
